I had an accident were I rear ended someone because they rear ended the car in front of them, but the guy in front left the seen after seeing if we were ok. I was stressed and didn't mention it to cops because I was in pain and stressed and didn't think it mattered at the time. The guy in front didn't tell the cops either. Should I amend report? I have neck herniations now from this. Is there any way I can have a personal injury claim in this scenario? I'm actuality, the guy I hit from behind hit the guy in front of him first. Now I have a injury and it looks like it was my fault.

Daugh was in car accident hit by a drunk driver, 2nd

Daugh was in car accident hit by a drunk driver, 2nd offense, and the other drivers ins is not being very cooperative. They wont pay the storage fees or issue us a rental car since they are "still investigating", accident was 6 days ago. They called the house and talked with my daugh & during the conversation I didnt feel good about what I was hearing from my end so I took the phone and told them all the info they needed was in the police rpt. They now say I was impeding the investigation and it will take longer. They asked me to move the car to a nonfee storage facility, which I didnt want to do but did, and to send them pictures of the car. Isnt that their job? They say the issue is who came to the stop sign 1st, "dual responsibilty" which means to me they want to blame part of it on my daugh. Does it really matter who came to the stop sign 1st since the other driver was in the wrong lane and hit my daugh while drunk? There were no witnesses so how can they determine that? Cops said my daugh was not at fault & had the right away, other driver was arrested. She hurt her neck but will prob be okay, MD called it classic whiplash and gave her a script, will do addl studies if prob doesnt resolve with 2-3wks.

One year ago my daughter and grandson were in an accident.

One year ago my daughter and grandson were in an accident. He was driving on a permit, made a left turn on a flashing green and was hit by a truck coming from the other direction. The truck hit them so hard there car was turned completely facing the other direction. He made no attempt to slow down, no skid marks, could have gone into the lane on his left but did not. My grandson was taken to a local hospital, minor injuries, got ticket for failing to yield. My daughter had to be cut out of her car, police blocked intersection so a helicopter could land to pick her up. She was flown to Cape Girardeau, Mo. and from there to St. Louis Barnes. Among other injuries her pelvis was badly broken, had surgery later that morning. After two weeks was transferred by ambulance to Herrin, Il. for rehab. She came home two weeks later in a wheelchair. She still walks with a limp, her leg is one inch shorter than the other, and she is in constant pain. The truck driver was not injured and very small damage to his truck, did not go to hospital for treatment nor did his passengers. Now my grandson , now eighteen, received notification that he is to pay $16,995.00 to the Secretary of State or his license will be suspended as of November 11,2016. My daughters car was smashed, so totaled, she can't work, and they live in housing. My grandson is an A student with several offers from colleges for next fall, but now has this hanging over him. Is there anything at all that we can do ?JA: License regulations vary from place to place, so can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: What do you mean by anything?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The only other thing was his permit had expired two days before the accident, but the police officers said nothing about that, and no ticket was issued for that.

My son received a traffic citation in Douglas County Colorado. He is 18 yrs old and was driving a car registered to me.The officer made my son sign something and then gave him a physical paper that has my name on the ticket, my name as the registered owner of the vehicle and this copy has no signatures on it.There is no mention of my son's name anywhere on this paper and it is requesting a court appearance on August 3rd.Is this correct or did the officer make a big mistake or error when writing the ticket.Thank you, Briant.
