Right around this time last year me and a buddy of mine lets call him "Trav" were leaving a concert in my vechicle that VW, my place of employment, leases
to me. Along with the lease payment full coverage insurance
So, we are leaving late at night going down a back road that I'm not too familar with. I was driving
faster than I should have been, showing off the new car and hit a curb, went airborn, and hit a telephone pole. At and just before impact things are kind of a blur. When everthing came to a stop Trav was in the back seat floorbored and pretty banged up. He wasn't wearing a seatbelt.
Well once I reported the accident
and the cops came and what not I was left holding a ticket for not having valid license. Stupid me, I had went to the DMV
one day to get them reinstated from a previous dumb luck accident and to save time got an ID that day instead of a drivers license. Something I regret.
The no license part comes to be a bigger deal though. Because of not following the regulations presented by the VW leasing office I lost my leasing privledges. I am to have valid license when driving a car that they allow me to lease. Well at first I was worried that would also cancel out my saftey provided by the insurance over the cost of the car. It's been nearly a year now and no such talk has been brought up of me owing the money so I fell safe in saying they covered it. Along with that I had given less thought about it providing any medical coverage to me or my passenger. I did however give Trav the insurance information just in case. Along with giving him the info, at the time of turning in the report to the insurance company I let them know that Trav was in the car too, and possibly hurt.
Fast forward to today. I get a letter in the mail saying that I am to pick up paper work for the case "Trav vs. Max"
Now I'm worried about how much of this is going to fall on my back. Does the huge delay mean anything? Does VW covering the car mean they will take action on the medical side? Blah, I've never been to court like this... so many questions.
