I am a student with two vehicles primarily in my name, along

I am a student with two vehicles primarily in my name, along with a cosigner(my mother). I received a notice that for verification of insurance and discovered that the insurance lapsed for the date requested. My mother has been paying the insurance, or so I thought. I am in medical school, in Alabama and worry about being slapped with a misdemeanor conviction along with the fines and jail time associated with having two vehicles uninsured. They asked for the date 4/3/16 and the current policy's effective date was 4/14/16 and is current. I know I will have to pay for new registration but wondered about the charges/jail/suspension of license chances are especially since I have one year of college left.

Can you list the possible legal issues if he gets into an accident or misses a payment?

I was rear ended and the damage to my car is approximately

I was rear ended and the damage to my car is approximately $3,400. My car is only worth $2,800. I was not found to be at fault in this accident, but I am horrified to find out that his insurance company will not pay to have the damages repaired to my car because the damages far exceeds the value. Is this even okay? I am a college student working full time and I do not have the resources to incur a car payment at this time. Mechanically, my car seems fine - it's just the rear bumper, gas cap and rear right taillight that are all damaged. The accident occurred in Omaha, NE and we both have liability insurance. Thank you!

Can my wife and I be held liable 18 year old son if he is

Can my wife and I be held liable for my 18 year old son if he is involved in an accident in his car?My son who lives at home with his mother and I was involved in two accidents in June of 2015, at that time he was only 17 years old. He was found at fault for both accidents and because of this our insurance dropped him from our policy in August of 2015. He hasn't driven since, but he wants to buy his own car now. He plans to register the car in his own name and get liability only insurance. Since he still lives at home with us and we financially support him, can my wife and I be held liable if he is involved in an accident in his car where damages exceed the liability limit of his policy?

My Family Trust currently names my daughter as beneficiary.

My Family Trust currently names my daughter as beneficiary. I plan to change the beneficiary designation to a baby grandson (child of that same daughter) as well as any of her subsequent children. My daughter would be the trustee of the grandchild's trust. QUESTION: I would like to stipulate that in the event of accident, illness or disability involving my daughter, that she could then withdraw assets of the trust to pay for her own personal medical or maintenance expenses, especially in the event of long term disability. Can such a benefit be given to my daughter when she is also the trustee of her child's trust?

I believe I may have tapped a car yesterday trying to back

I believe I may have tapped a car yesterday trying to back out of a tight parking garage space. I was barely moving and slowly reversing/going forward trying to get out of the spot. I did not feel any kind of bump or jolt to indicate that I bumped into them but a passenger in my car thought I hit the car behind me. I did not thinking about leaving a note at the time and wish I had. I'm worried and would like to give them my insurance information. I have my parking stub from the garage still. Should I call the garage and ask if they can assist? Should I call my local police station and report the possible accident and provide my information incase a report is filed? There is no damage or markings (no paint, scratches, anything) on my car so I'm not even sure I actually hit the car.
