not sure about legal time line but if you report the accident immediately or even now ( if you did not) your insurance company will assist you with the information. if for no other reason than to protect themselves....and get correspondence in writing!!! Generally the statute of limitations allows an injured party 2 years to claim injury damages. Genuinely, sometimes injuries DO NOT appear immediately. This is due to the body producing adrenaline during the crash.
The injured party should seek compensation from the driver of whichever vehicle was at fault for the accident.
Probably, but the defense will argue that the passenger contributed to his injuries by not wearing the seat belt which the driver provided.
Depending on the outcome of the investigation of who was at fault, either nothing at all - OR - the school administration and the driver may become liable for a suit for damages and injuries.
If someone in a vehicle accident is injured or killed, one or all of the drivers involved in the accident may be charged with vehicular manslaughter or felon reckless or drunken driving, depending on the circumstances. The driver charged does not necessarily have to be the one who caused the accident.
Assuming in this instance the uninsured driver is the one at fault, he or she is still liable for any property damage & personal injuries that may have resulted from the accident. The injured party will make a claim against his or her uninsured motorist policy. But that insurance company can, and often will, sue the uninsured driver.
The insurers of the driver who was deemed to be at fault for the accident.
They would lose there license
They would be charged with leaving the scene of an accident in addition to any other charges regarding the cause. There is no requirement to help the other driver.
their license would be REVOKED.
No, you cannot sue your insurance company for injuries....actuallly, I take that back. You can sue anybody for anything...but in this case, you would not win. Your policy should have a coverage called Uninsured Motorist Coverage. Typically, this would cover the injured parties in your vehicle if the accident was caused by an uninsured driver. This would cover your injuries in such an incident. Unfortunately, this coverage is not discussed by most insurance agents and is included as an afterthought. Be sure to check your policy and see if this is there. You should never have a lower Uninsured Motorist coverage than your Bodily Injury amount.
If the other driver suffered property damage or was injured, he can sue the driver who caused the accident, regardless of the speed of collision.
== == If no other vehicles were involved in this accident, the insurance company of the motorcycle driver has to cover the medical bills of the passenger who was injured.
The license status of the other driver has no bearing on your liability. If you were at fault you are still responsible for any damages and injuries. Just report it to your insurance company as you would any other accident.
Yes.Added; If they file a claim against the driver/owner's insurance company, yes. In the absence of insurance (or if the amount is inadequate to cover the injuries) you can file a personal suit against the owner.
Usually liable for all damages and injuries, and may be criminally charged if there is a resulting death.
the driver's license would be suspended.
You guessed it!
No. No fault means exactly that. The driver not responsible for the accident cannot be held liable for injuries to any passengers in the at fault vehicle.
yes if the driver was working for the car rental company and caused the accident but if it was a difrent driver who was just renting the car you can only sue the driver of that car.
Both the driver and owner of vehicle are responsible. The injured party would sue you both.
When car A has shockproof glass and car B has normal glass as their window pane and when they meet with an accident and both cars windows are damaged, car A's driver may not get injured but the driver in car B will get injured
Interesting. My best guess is that you will be ticketed for the accident, and the driver of the other car will be ticketed for not having the kid strapped in. As far as fault for the kids injuries lies, ultimately with you. If the accident had not occured, the kid would not have been hurt. Both you and the other driver are going to get fined, but I think you are going to get the worse end of the bargian.
The accident can appear for up to 3 yrs on your driver license. It usually goes from the actual date of the accident.
Well at the very that would be considered a hit and run. If the injured person(s) died then it would be vehicular manslaughter.
this is tricky, dependant on the state laws...you are driving an uninsured vehicle, you have insurance on another vehicle of your own, you get into an accident that is your fault...the owner of the vehicle is a passenger in the car and is injured...your policy should step in and cover this uninsured vehicle (assuming you have collision coverage on your policy) you chose to drive, (doesn't matter you didn't know it was uninsured) and if your neglience resulted in this passengers injuries your policy will likely pay for their injury subject to any exclusion in the policy.....sorry.....
