I was the victim of a road rage incident Sunday 9/11 by a tax cab driver in which he purposefully hit my car doing over $3000 damages. Police officer came upon aftermath of the scene 2 minutes after and filed a police report. Man charged with reckless driving and unsafe movement. Man followed me after I left the scene in fear of my life with my 4 yr old child screaming in the back seat as had rammed my car into the curb and pinned us so we couldn't move. Rolled down his window cursing in arabic or something calling me a "bitch" and I thought he might have gun so when light change to green a gunned the gas pedal and drove 500 feet to entrance of sub-division and blocked entrance so he couldn't follow me. Cop came upon scene 30 seconds later.Can I sue the taxi cab driver if the company on tape admits the driver being a contractor for them? Sue the driver too? There were no injuries thank god. This happened in Apex NC.

I was involved in a road rage incident wherein a car with dealer plates tried to run me off the road and my car was damaged.I have the plate number, but the police don't want to do anything because the other driver never actually hit my car.My insurance company will pay for some of the damage, but with my high deductible and their extreme reduced payment for used parts, etc., the actual payout for the $2500.00 in damages is $187.00.Plus, because I hit a deer last year,($5200.00 in damage) this claim will jack up my rate and/or get me cancelled.So, I want to file a small claims case, but I can't find any information on the owner of the car.My insurance company does know who it is (from the license plate number I gave them) but they can't reveal that to meI tried one of these on-line services that let you look up license plates for a fee, etc., but they come up with nothing.(I looked up my self on the same site and it comes up with NOTHING too.)My question: Is there a site that I can go to that can get me the name/owner of the license plate?(Being a dealer plate I assume they can put it on any car.)

I was involved in a road rage incident where the other party

I was involved in a road rage incident where the other party spit into my car onto my arm and arm rest from his company tow truck. I now have reason to believe that the same individual may have posted my name and number on the mens bathroom wall of a local gas station that has been confirmed as a location he frequents by the manager of the location. Is there anything I can charge or sue him for?

hi. I was involved in a "road rage" incident last month where the other party tried to cause an accident. enraged, I got out of my car with a baseball bat in hand and we continued to yell at each other, however I DID NOT approach the other vehicle. the other party called the police, who came and took a statement. they determined we were both idiots, no citations were issued, and an incident report was filed. unless either person wanted to file charges, it was done.today I received a call from a police detective about the incident. I asked if the other party with filing charges, and he said it was irrelevant. He was very unpleasant, very impatient, and at the end of the call said he would be forwarding his "findings" to a prosecutor to see if they wanted to proceed with charges. is this likely to go to court? there were no witnesses to the incident, only the statements from myself and the other party.

My childs father is harassing me. Always bothering me with

My child's father is harassing me. Always bothering me with texts trying to get back with me and claiming he loves me yet he is sending the identical texts to his previous girlfriend( the lady he was seeing behind my back & moved in with after i kicked him out of my house). I am in the address confidentiality program and hope the judge will let me use that as my address because he is pressed on knowing where i now reside(i left my house i kicked him out of due to him riding by late at night and leaving a nasty note on my door...stalking!) Im sure if he were to get my new address he would be stalking me again and i do not want to live in fear again and loose anymore sleep over him. He has always been disrespectful and i have texts to prove that. I never pressed any stalking, harassment or domestic abuse charges because I'm finally realizing what occurred as i have been getting ready for this case against him. I have just been dealing with everything to keep the peace for now for the safety of my daughter...not to get him upset with me and let it roll over onto her.The lady he was seeing behind my back and i are now friends because she contacted me recently after she kicked him out of her house and he destroyed 3 tvs by punching and cutting the cords, poured drink on her laptop and broke it (as he did mine), and many, many other items of her's he has destroyed. But as I said before, he is harassing us both with the same texts just waiting to see which of us may be dumb enough to take him back. He and i currently have a temporary visitation set up for our daughter with me having primary custody, but after hearing how crazy he went on his ex and how he was domestically abusive to us both( she and i have been through the exact same things with him...basically verbatim) I fear for my child being around him. He uses and sells steroids, smokes marijuana while watching my child, has an older daughter who bothers our child while taking her naps and no telling what else goes on while in his care!!! All of these things i just found out, otherwise i probably would not have agreed to any visitation because he is crazy!!He is known to have severe road rage and has accrued many speeding tickets just over the past couple of years. He has threatened suicide to both the ex and me since we do not want him back. Overall he is mean, controlling, harassing, emotionally abusive and a sociopath. I am wondering if anyone has any opinions on what a judge may rule for his continuing to see our daughter once we have our custody hearing? i hear so much of NC judges " giving the benefit of the doubt" and " give him a chance" but how much should my child be exposed to and what amount of danger does she have to possibly endure to get the courts to see he is unit and she is truly better off without him in her life?!? Cant he be locked up for the steroid use and selling? Would they cut off any visitation knowing all of this? Could i get his parental rights terminated?He has never worked to support her and I am and have always been her primary caregiver, even when we lived together...he was too busy running the roads seeing other women to want to be home with his daughter. I and his ex are truly afraid he will ruin my smart young daughter with his selfish, uncaring, drug filled lifestyle. The ex is going to be a surprise witness. also and i'm afraid after that he may follow through with his sucidical thoughts and hurt our child and himself to get back at me for letting the courts know he is such a terrible person. I do have an attorney but wanted a second opinion becAuse i'm afraid everything will be too lenient on him and as i said have the attitude of " well give him a chance" when i know and have been told by his ex how bad of a parent he truly is behind closed doors.Thank youFearing for my baby

I was involved in a road rage incident today and then physically

I was involved in a road rage incident today and then physically assaulted by the man who continued to tailgate me for some way into a parking lot to get gas this afternoon. I finally hit my brakes, he came out of his truck, I did get out of my car, he approached me. I told him that he pulled out in front of me, in a 60 mph speed limit, without consideration, then the next thing I know, I am a f***ing B and shoved backwards to the ground. I just had neck surgery in November and Lumbar surgery in December. I was coming back from PT when the incident happened. I did file assault charges against him. He was given a citation. I need to know if I need an attorney.
