I'm on bed rest from a car crash( not my fault ) my brother drove my car to get my medicine and hit a mail box and a hydrant.
Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 3 years ago
I understand now, I was confused and thought there was only one accident we were discussing.
Yes, if your brother was driving your car with your permission and was not a driver who was specifically excluded from your policy of insurance then the insurance should pay for the damages to your car.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
