I'm in Washington State. I purchased a vehicle 7mos ago,

I'm in Washington State. I purchased a vehicle 7mos ago, registered it, rendered it inoperable (had to repair the engine), and just got it working again a couple of days ago. Today, I was in a single vehicle accident where I also took out a large highway pole and sign. A state trooper showed up and recorded my insurance information; however, this vehicle is not yet on my insurance. I have insurance for my other car. What should I do? Should I contact my insurer? Should I be afraid of a "driving without insurance" ticket in my future? Ive read that there is usually a 2-week grace period to get a car insured. Is this long over for me since I purchased the car so long ago? My mechanic and some photos I have can prove the car was inoperable until a couple of days ago.

I had a wreck entering the interstate on tge on ramp.

Hi i had a wreck entering the interstate on tge on ramp. Following a car that evidently was following his friend. Both cars stopped on the in ramp just before entering the interstae. While i was looking back trying to see where i could merge on to the interstate they stopped and of course i was probably doing 55 when i seen that tge car in frontcof me had come to a complete stop. Of course i had no time to stop and i probably slid 10 feet i guess and hit him in the rearend. Was written a ticket for not paying attention to what was going on in front of me. My question is: if your suppose to stop but merge on to the interstate. Why am i being charged with the accident? Two days later the guy crys hurt neck.

I needed some advice/help. This last weekend I was involved

Hello, I needed some advice/help. This last weekend I was involved in a wreck. I was heading North on the highway and the roads were in slick condition as I live in Colorado and it had snowed. There was a light and we were going about 65mph. The light had turned yellow and the car in front of me had the chance to make it across and so was I but she decided to brake still causing me to run into her. She was in front of the interception line so I did believe she was going to go through but decided not to. What can I do in this case to win my case? I have filed a insurance claim but the cop gave me the "reckless driving" ticket as well as mandatory court date.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ColoradoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Will be filing a claim this FridayJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That will be it

My husband was doing 70 in a 35 mph zone in Oahu, He sent a

My husband was doing 70 in a 35 mph zone in Oahu, HI. He sent a letter to the court and has received a court date of 12/27/16. According to the letter, he has to pay a $500 fine plus other fines totaling $800. Also, the letter states he has to be incarcerated for 2 days and 30 days community service plus take a driving class. Since this happened in Hawaii, would he be able to do his community service in New Mexico where we live? And I'm not too sure what he can do about the 2 days in jail. Any advise?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And to clarify, can you tell me what paperwork has been filed?Customer: The ticket was issued in Oahu, HI. We live in New Mexico and were in Hawaii on vacation. The speed limits fluctuated on the small highway we were on from 50 mph to 35 mph. The paperwork we received was in response to a letter my husband sent as he was trying to plea by mail. We understand that we have to pay a fine, the question is regarding the incarceration times indicated and the community service. Should we hire a representative on the island for my husband's court date?JA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: My husband has the letter from the court. Should I have him send you a copy so that you could review and advise us?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, not at this time as I feel ill prepared without the letter from the court in Hawaii. Can I get a copy and send it next week for review?
