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.

Was issued a summons in Saskatoon Saskatchewan Saftey Act
Was issued a summons in Saskatoon Saskatchewan for Trafic Saftey Act 253(3). Failure to report accident to police officer. I did leave the accident site a block away as it was a very busy intersection with no parking lane. Police on scene within 5 minutes and met him as I was walking back to accident site a police officer intervened and gave me growing through red light which is a fine and it is paid. I had no intention of evading him and I was returning to scene. As I understand it ignorance of a law is not defensible, and I am fine with pleading guilty, however I do not know what penalty is for this charge and want that information before I appear. Question is what are range of penalties for pleading guilty ??? There was no impairment and police officer did a ask sobriety related questions and was satisfied with my response.

No ticket was given at the accident, but i was given a ticket for driving while license suspended. How should I approach this situation? Will the insurance company fix our vehicle?

Question about minor vehicle accident. My son (24 years old)
Question about minor vehicle accident. My son (24 years old) who is covered under my auto insurance with USAA made slight contact with another cars bumper while parking his truck on 9/26/14 at around 9 pm. Driver of other vehicle (new Chevy Cruze), a teenagegirl who was sitting in her car at the time talked with my son about minor nature of scrape & said not to worry about it. Apparently after that conversation, the teenager called her mother who showed up at the restaurant where my son was & was able to trackhim down. They exchanged some info although my son did not get registration info, license info from girl or car license #. Police were not called. My son gave mother his phone # & today she called him & told him they had taken car to local Chevy dealer & gotestimate for repairs which would be $507 to fix bumper. My son, who is a car detailer as a part time job as well as college student told mother he could polish out scratch & detail car for them at no charge. She told him to contact her tomorrow, Thurs 10/2to tell her what he intends to do. She doesn't want him to fix scratch. He doesn't have $500. Our insurance has a $500 deductible. What is the best approach to deal with mother out for blood? ***** *****nden
I was driving without insurance in Jackson Miss. when I was
I was driving without insurance in Jackson Miss. when I was hit by a State Farm insured motorist - no injuries, fender bender wreck. I was not issued a ticket, nor were my licensed pull by officer. State farm is suing me for over 8,000.00 and I arranged a payment plan due to being on disability and my credit scores are too low for a loan. Due to medical reasons I missed payment and they could not contact me. A year later I found out they had put a lien on my home and then they suspended my license a week ago. I called the law group and asked for explanation and was told because I missed payments they wanted the claim paid in full. I asked them to reconsider and taking a lower sum - eventhough I do not have anyway to get it and asked if payments could be re-instated the lawyer replied he would check - it has been a week and no answer. I can not be without my license due to medical reasons and family reasons. If I was not given a ticket or had license pulled how can State Farm do
