I was just in a minor car accident. No one got injured, there were just some small marks in the other car. What do I need to do next? Do I need to report it to my insurance or should I wait for the other driver to do so?Thank you!

I was riding my bicycle on the sidewalk in Chicago IL I hit a car coming out of the alley. They stopped but didn't honk.I had no insurance. Bicyle vs. Car AccidentThier vehicle was dented and scratched by my bike. A couple months later they sent me a estimate of 953.00 and asked if I could pay it. I told the I had no money to pay it . So they moved to the adjuster with Geico. Lippman and assocaites sent me the claim in the mail totaling 1545.00 dollars. I have no money to pay this so I moved to dispute the claim. What do I do ? And what the best course of action to dispute this claim? I think its unfair.

I have just been in a car accident. I hit a light post at

Hello.JA: Hello. What is your issue regarding?Customer: I have just been in a car accident. I hit a light post at the Department of Veterans affairs causing the the top part of the light to fall off of the pole. I am being charged with leaving the scene of an accident without reporting and willful destruction of government property (which I find strange considering I was in an accident due to my window being foggy). I do not know how much damage was made to the pole but I read that destruction of government property As amended on September 13, 1994, if the damage exceeds $100, the defendant is subject to a fine of up to $250,000, ten years imprisonment, or both. See Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, Pub. L. 103-322, § 330016, 108 Stat. 1796, 2146-47 (1994). When property damage does not exceed $100, the offense is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $100,000, one year imprisonment, or both. When I asked the police if jail time was possible for these offenses I was told 'No'. Is this true? What will most likely happen?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: NY State just a few hours ago.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I have 2 violation notices for each of the charges.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No. Ok.

I am helping a man get out of prison in Minnesota. While he

I am helping a young man get out of prison in Minnesota. While he was making arrangements to get his driver's license so that he would have it when he is released Feb. 6, he found out that there is a judgment in Tenn. When he was 18 he was involved in a car accident that was his fault and he did not have a driver's license or insurance at the time. He moved out of Tenn a few months later and did not receive any notification of a court date. In Aug 2010 a judgment was issued against him for $12k+ which with interest is now $21k +. I spoke to the insurance company's lawyer and he said that we would need to make a settment offer (suggesting half of the $21k) for a general release or make a $1K down payment and set up payment plants for a conditional release.Are there any other options to get rid of this judgment?

I want to drive but I'm afraid a car accident will but my

I want to drive but I'm afraid a car accident will but my other assets at risk. I have a alright job and I made some money so I bought a house. I worked long and hard and saved up for a long time. I don't have a driver license or a car, but I'm considering to get one as walking to everywhere is not very convenient. But what I'm afraid of is that since I'm a new driver I'm mostly going to get in a car accident and when I do I put my house and other assets at risk. I'm not exactly sure what to do in these situations. Should I just refrain from getting a car or is there anyway I can protect myself when I do get in a accident?

I was in a car accident in October 2016 (someone hit me from

Hi. I was in a car accident in October 2016 (someone hit me from behind while in traffic) but they hit me hard and I had to tell my insurance. They told me to pay the deductible. I then began to feel pain and opened up a claim. To be honest I still feel pain but dropped the pain claim because it was too much for me to work and be glued to a chiropractor. I'm still waiting for my deductible but insurance said for sure I'm getting the money because it was obviously the other vehicles fault.Just now I'm turning to my left and with 2 lanes turning to the left, this old little lady who can barely see over the steering wheel, is turning as well on the lane next to me (I'm on the right lane turning left at the light and she's on the left lane turning left at the light) I go and continue on my lane and she somehow drifts over and hits me by the back right where I put gas in the car. So it's obvious that she's at fault. I'm waiting for the cops to come. I know I'm not at fault. There's really just a dent and scratch on my car and I'm late for work but she's trying to be tough and called the cops- meanwhile it was her fault.Is this something I should open up another claim for? And is this going to hurt my insurance. Will they drop me since it's 2 accidents (both not my fault ) ? Will my insurance go up? Should I just forget the dent and the scratch? What if she opens a claim. Her paint was more smudged than mine.

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.
