Michigan. Company truck. Our Employee rear ended a passenger

Michigan. Company truck. Our Employee rear ended a passenger vehicle. $550 of damage to passenger vehicle. Driver of passenger car said that calling police is not necessary. Our employee gave the passenger vehicle owner our business card. The owner sent our company the repair estimate and is asking to be reimbursed the $550.Three related questions:should we the company pay for their repairs ( no fault State. Owner of damaged vehicle Can sue driver for up to $700, I think, as mini torte to recover deductible)?Did our employee do anything wrong or illegal driving away without reporting it to the police?Should this now be reported to police or our insurance company ( no damage to our vehicle and we only carry PLPD)

Very scared and not sure where to turn. I called an

Hello! Very scared and not sure where to turn. I called an insurance lawyer, but he was quite rude and dismissive. Long story short-my car (2005 Toyota Corolla) experienced sudden unintended acceleration in my workplace parking lot. I hit four cars before I could stop it (turned engine off, as brake was not responding). I had a clean record previous to that. Filed a police report-officer did not cite me. Problem is, I only have $10,000 of liability coverage (based on state requirements) and damages may go over that. My co-workers are HIGHLY unlikely to bring suit, but I am worried about subrogation suit. I have very good credit which I worked hard to obtain (not willing to declare bankruptcy). However, I am not going to be able to come up with $7000 or $8000 at the drop of a hat. I WOULD be willing to work out a payment plan if that is my only option. I need some help and someone on my side-my insurance company appears indifferent and is pretty much throwing me to the wolves. Thanks in advance!

My husband is 74 y/o and had triple bypass on 4/15/16. After

My husband is 74 y/o and had triple bypass on 4/15/16. After surgery and while being in ICU his hemoglobin was 7.4. He got 7 units of blood before they discovered he had pleural effusion and atelectasis. He then was transferred to a cardiovascular floor. He was unable to walk on his own. MD ordered IV lasix 40 mg to get rid of fluids but brought his potassium level got low and they started him on Potassium chloride 20 mEq daily. After a week he was transferred to a rehab facility where one of the nurses held his beta blocker which in turn brought his heart rate to 156. Nurse practitioner then ordered IV amiodorone and MD ordered to stop lasix and to give 250 mL IV bolus. After a week in rehab facility where he received physical and occupational therapy, he was discharged home with PT/OT therapies. My question is can the first hospital be blamed for all of this ordeal??? Thank you

My 18 year old son rear ended some drunk people at 1 am they

my 18 year old son rear ended some drunk people at 1 am they ofcourse said lets just go our seperate ways and call it even (they were students at the same school as my son . boy 17 driver. girl 16 owner of car) the girls dad is a state trooper he had them wait a day then file a police report saying my sone left the scene. and reported that the girl was driving at the time (not true she was too drunk to walk) a county cop tracked ian down two days later put him in the car and gave him a scare tactic speech trying to get my son to admit to a hit and run . my son told them nothing but his name and said i refuse to talk about anything because i know nothing cause i was never in an accident and was never there. the cop left him with a ticket for following too close resulting in an accident and said if he didnt come to him with an insurance card by the end of the week he would be back to write him more tickets for no insurance and more he is trying to help his friends get a fast few thousand bucks from my sons insurance thats the word around school that the kids are bragging about the money they are going to get, my questions are can the cop keep comming back to issue more tickets can the charges be increased to more than they are now ? if he pays the current ticket right away does this close the case so no more charges can be filed

I'm the founder of Unius Learning, Russian citizen residing

I'm the founder of Unius Learning, Russian citizen residing in the UK, came over to attend a tech conference "Collision" in New Orleans. It was my first visit to the United States. On my last day, while I was away at the conference and dinner with investors, a cleaner came into my room, which is recorded on cameras, attempted to tear my russian passport apart and threw it on the floor. The Holiday Inn Downtown Superdome - hotel manager confirmed that the cleaning lady was seen on a camera, however she claims it was an accident. When I asked whether it was to do with the vacuum cleaner, the manager said no. The hotel refuses to refund my stay, so I can move to another hotel and apologize for this matter and says that it was not intentional. It can be clearly seen on the pictures that it was not "accidental" and shows hate towards russian citizens.I'm lost and would like to request help from a lawyer.

I was recently in a car accident where I was pulling

Hello, I was recently in a car accident where I was pulling forward as someone was moving backwards at a slow rate of speed; neither of us going faster than 3-5 mph. After evaluation of the damages, both of our insurance companies decided this was a no fault accident. The father of the individual that was involved is refusing to accept this claim as his daughter claimed more damage to her car from the accident, however the insurance companies found that her damage could not have been caused by our collision. He now wants pictures of my car because he can't come to grips that his daughter may be withholding the entire truth. My insurance company said that it is my decision, but that he said he wanted piece of mind. There is only a slight scratch on my car, which would prove that her extensive damage that she is claiming is not from our accident, but from another accident that she had at another time. Should I authorize the release of my car damage pictures or will this leave me vulnerable in some respect?
