Customer Question
I was rear-ended by...

I was rear-ended by an employee of Big O Tires driving a customer's car. He had a suspended license. Right now everything is going under my insurance until the other insurance takes accountability. The officer ticketed him, and I had been driving straight in the same lane for about 400 feet. Now the kid is lying and trying to make the accident my fault (saying I pulled out in front of him). The report is not yet available on crashdocs.org.

Lawyer's Assistant: License regulations vary from place to place, so can you tell me what state this is in?

Colorady colorado

Lawyer's Assistant: Do you need to appear in court?

No

What are the best options; bring a case against the driver who was driving with a suspended license, or Big O Tires for allowing an employee with a suspended license to drive a customers car, who then hit me?
Traffic Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 1 month ago
Your insurer on your behalf should pursue them both.By being prepared and pressing your claim, the other side should feel the pressure and consider the risk of losing and legal fees. That realization can help bring about a settlement!Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

What verbiage would I use? ie; what exactly would I be suing each for?
Traffic Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 1 month ago
Negligence and principal agency theory for the company. The insurer would handle it. You stand to recover not only your actual losses (compensatory damages) but also interest, costs and legal fees. on occasion special damages (punitive damages) are also available.Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

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.
