Thank you. I have a friend that had a drunk driver to pull

Thank you. I have a friend that had a drunk driver to pull out into their lane and they swerved to the drunk driver lane trying to avoid a head on collision. At the last second the drunk driver corrected himself and hit the other driver. His insurance company won't pay out because my friend admitted while being recorded that she swerved trying to avoid a head on collision. She still got hit on the driver side front quarter panel. Is there anything that could be done?JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: North CarolinaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: She got a lawyer to file against the drunk drivers insurance but he wants to back out because of her recorded statement. She didn't receive a citation. The drunk driver received the citationJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: They were witnesses but my friend was knocked unconscious and wasn't able to get any names because they took her to the hospital but the witnesses told the trooper what happened

Our son is 30 but a very reserved person. He was involved in

Our son is 30 but a very reserved person. He was involved in an auto accident with a minor. We live in Maine. The minor failed to yield right of way causing significant damage to my son's auto. The parent of the minor who caused the accident did not list his son on his auto insurance policy, so the insurance company will not pay for the damages caused by the collision. The parent will not pay for damages, tow yard storage fees, car rental, etc...We have a police report and a video showing the accident. We helped our son pay for the cost of tow yard storage and loaned him money to help him get a vehicle so he could get to work. My question is in a small claim case can we be listed as a plaintiff to recover the costs that were loaned to our son. We know our son and believe that he would have a very difficult time in court. We do not want to see a person that is painfully reserved being taken advantage of by these people that failed to cover their teenage driver. Can you advise?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: Maine, car is a 2007 Honda Civic.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The tow yard costs were $2000 dollars as we had no place to store the car on our property.

I want to file an injunction against naval training ops out

I want to file an injunction against naval training ops out of FL. We live in AL and after misrepresenting in public, what T6 touch and go activity would mean to our dense neighborhood, we have 38,000 loops over our heads daily within a year. They fly too low (below their own guidelines) and are so loud you cannot hear in your house or yard. Several residents have witnessed near mid-air collisions with other planes and also flocks of birds. We are a condensed area, and if a plane crashes, as has happened twice in the last couple of weeks with training aircraft in FL and MD, people on the ground here will die because there is no safe, open area, any more to crash land. navy says Barin Field has always had training. That is true, BUT, they never had modified T6s until runways were extended in 2014 AFTER they said no impact over us. To put it mildly, they lied. Now they ignore. We have asked Mayor Koniar of Foley, in various meetings, to file an injunction but he won't cross the military, i.e.., Whiting Airfield, ie., TRAW5 out of Corpus Cristie, TX who oversees all of these hundreds of thousands of flights, literally, all over So. Baldwin County, the most populated and fast growing tourist area in the state! Congressman Byrne, District 1, wrote one letter then said "he worked hard, could do no more". People down here think they have no recourse because of national security being what it is. Truth is, the Navy has 13 fields, several in FL, where they are based, that could do this necessary pilot training. How do I file an injunction to get the planes stopped until we can examine the truth of the altitude and danger to those of us living under this menace? Thank you, ***** *****JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Sorry, meant to say Alabama. Real Estate not required to disclose airports nearby. But in this case, it would not have mattered, because before 2014, we were told that instead of the T34 training, which everyone accepted, T6 would replace them and no impact. In fact, we were told in public meetings, and in EA assessments that planes would fly high and be less noisy. Now there are so many in the air, with other private planes passing back and forth, that the danger is eminent.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: we have filed nothing, but have reported, hundreds of times to the city officials, to Whiting Airfield, to TRAW5 in TX, and to FAA. They ALL say "it's the military, and they say they are doing everything right". They are not, and they know it. And we know it. I, and many others, have researched this in other parts of the country and found that the only time the Navy, and sometimes Air Force, answered any questions, was when they were brought to court. We have tried to avoid that, but after one year, and after two years of incessant noise and danger which is causing harm to our health not to mention no quality of life when they are flying, we need to do something dramatic, I think. They just "proceed until apprehended" or until someone is killed in a crash, which undoubtably will occur. Statistics bear that out. We have over 38,000 loops (navy docs obtained from FOIA confirm this) in one year just in the 2 mile radius around Barin Field in Foley, AL. There are five fields being used in So. Baldwin County, AL, totaling hundreds of thousand of flights over the highly populated towns of Foley, AL, Gulf Shores, AL and Fairhope, AL. All towns marketed as "paradise", "utopia" with not one mention of any military ops coming 55 miles away from Milton, FL. This is not, and never has been, a military base town such as Pensacola or Eglin which are within 1-2 hours away. That is why we, any many others, moved here. We have been scammed, for sure, and now danger is added to the mix. What can we do? Thank youJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I would like to also sue, personally, using federal tort claim, but need help with that,too. My health is being ruined (I have MS and had cancer but am fine now) and the stress is just exacerbating everything. Immediately though, I would love to get these flights stopped so what is going on here can be publicly examined through the courts.

I hired a person to tow my 5th wheel trailer to a

I hired a person to tow my 5th wheel trailer to a campground. He had an accident on the way and damaged my trailer. He said e would haveit fixed by the RV storage facility where it was in storage. He had no collision insurance but has a working relationship with storage facility, which is also a repair facility. They agreed to do the repairs but kep dragging heir feet. The accident hppend on the 26th f Dec, 2016. I finally got them to agree to do work in Mar. I gave them the trailer on Mar 4th. The said they would take two weeks. After 2wks they said they needed another week. After the 3drd wk they said they needed another 2 wks. I was away visiting my wifewhois confined to an alzhiemers home. When they said it would take 2wks more I returned to FL to make sure they were if fact woking on the trailer. They actually did a minimal amount of work. So after checking their progress for 5 days and saw no one was working onthe trailer at all, I pulled the trailer out and hired someone to do the work. So, I want to go to small claims court but do I sue the driver or the repair facility or both?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the RV?Customer: Florida, the trailet is a 2006 model, I puchased last year.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: A police report was done, and I contacted his insurance but they sail he didn't have collision so they could not help me. My insurance does nt include collision beccuse I never intended to tow it.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes I have an additional claim or motels I had to stay in.

I currently an active duty military Officer and was recently

Hello,I currently an active duty military Officer and was recently involved in a rear end collision. Thankfully I was not injured and was not at fault as the other car hit my rear bumper. The police officers responded and issues and completed an accident report. I provided my license and insurance. No citations were issued to me. However later that week I called my insurance company to see about filling a claim and was informed my insurance was cancelled due to non payment (Its a long story, but no insurance at time of accident. I'm now worried that a no insurance ticket could be issued and was wondering how the offense could impact my career. Also, I am licensed in TX and living in IL. Thanks
