Good morning. Why did she jump out of a moving vehicle? You shared she was drunk and does not remember much?

We went to a restaurant for food and drinks . About ten minutes into it I realized she was already REALLY DRUNK .I paid the bill and left. When we were driving she asked where we were going. I said to another bar to keep her calm till she noticed we were about a mile from her house . She started yelling at me and opened the door . I told her to cut the shit and she kept it opened. Before I could slow down or anything she jumped. Police, fire and ambulance came almost immediately .

Thank you for the reply. In order for you to be sued and liable it would need to be shown that your actions were a cause of her actions or you did something to force her out of the car. If she was impaired and opened the door and voluntarily just jumped out and it was her fault it would be hard for her to sue you and show that you are liable.

The fact that you were found not guilty for the criminal offense does not prevent a civil lawsuit but if she jumped out on her own and through no fault of your own I can’t see her prevailing in a lawsuit against you.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
