Q: 

Can I file a lawsuit against the driver at fault in a no-fault state?

A:  Minnesota is a no-fault insurance state. This means that it is unnecessary forthe driver not at fault to prove the other party’s fault in order to receivemoney for medical expenses, such as rehabilitation, and for lost wages.Personal Injury Protection, or PIP, is part of an insurance policy in ano-fault state. The insurance company of the party not at fault pays for the medicalexpenses under the conditions of PIP. The tradeoff of receiving compensation without a lengthylegal battle with the other party’s insurance provider is that the injuredparty may not sue the party at fault for pain and suffering or emotionaldistress unless certain conditions are prevalent. In certain circumstances, aninjured person may sue the other driver if the medical expenses exceed aspecific monetary threshold....

Q: 

Is their a law saying that I have to pay the insurance company of an auto accident of another partly?

A:  you were responsible, so you have to pay. If you don''t have a lot money/income you can usually work out a payment plan with the other driver''s insurance company. Look at it this way, if she hadn''t had insurance you would have to pay her right ? Your insurance agent isn''t too great if he let you drive around with only 10k in liability coverage. Even a modest car these days costs over that. Get higher limits. Hi , Yes , you are liable since it was proven that you caused the accident. But you can argue it in court. And you may win . Rgds…………… you neglect to mention where this happened, so we do not know if the laws there might be a bit different [''No Fault'' laws make a huge...

Q: 

If I get into an accident while driving a car that''s in my husband''s name, who do they go after?

A:  Insurance goes with cars, not with drivers. Insurance on any other car will not follow anyone to any other car. If you drove a vehicle without insurance, you violated the law. If you had an at fault accident and have no insurance to cover the damage you did, you will have to pay the injured party for the damage done. Why is the car you are driving uninsured? In the case you suggest, they will go after you AND your husband. In most states people''s insurance will accommodate ''uninsured drivers'' but that''s only if the owner of that vehicle has insurance. If he/she is someone like you, you are risking a whole lot of lawsuits, your financial...

Q: 

If my car was in a accident and i was hit by a rental car, And my girlfriend was driving with suspended licens?

A:  You own the car, so all you need to do is go to the impound yard with proof of ownership, proof of insurance (just in case they ask to see it) & pay the towing/impound fees. Then your vehicle will be released to you. Even though your gf has a suspended d/l, if the other car was at fault, the rental agency or the renters personal insurance will pay for any damages to your vehicle. Now here is one thing I''ve seen happen & can possible apply in your case- the insurance may come to an agreement that your gf is to burden a % of the fault for the collision by driving illegally & the settlement from the rental agency or the other person''s will pay you towards...

Q: 

Will a car always do the same speed in a given gear at a given revs?

A:  There are many factors involved in determining the speed of a car, condition of the engine and running gear, mass of the car and ambient temperature of the air being some of the variables. In general the speed of the car wont vary a great deal, plus or minus 5 mph, on the flat. The inclination of the road surface will always make the greatest difference to the speed of the car. Not if it going downhill, very strong wind, wieght in the car (lots of heavy bags etc) No because of: 1 Road Incline - Decline 2 wind with - Against - side wind 3 Engine tuned - untuned 4 Passengers with - without 5...

Q: 

Can I use clutch control to move the car if the gear is on 2nd?

A:  TAKE THE ADVICE FROM BRIAN C. He is smack on with his answer. When you have more experience after passing your test, you will be able to move away in 2nd. But in 3rd or 4th the chances are you will instantly stall the vehicle. Plus your clutch will take a beating and wear quickly due to needing more revs to move Stick with what you are being taught and use 1st gear only for pulling away from a standing start. Yes..it disengages the transmission. Only if you want to destroy your clutch. Or stall. i can do it in my vectra, but its a 1.8 youre learning maybe in a 1.4 corsa or such like. no generally you cant move off in 2nd. you need to be in first at all times when moving off and using clutch control. the reason youre starting in 1st is because this gives the engine ''juice'', allows the...

Q: 

I have a dispute with a vendor that is debiting my account. If I close that account and open a new one, will the payments stop?

A:  If the vendor has been using electronic checks or the Automated Clearing House (ACH) system to debit its payments, transferring your funds into a new bank account should prevent any further payments to the vendor, since one of the pieces of information needed to initiate an electronic check or ACH transaction is the number of the account from which the funds are to be withdrawn. If you authorized the payments using a debit card tied to your bank account, you should make sure that you cancel your old card when you open the new bank account, and verify with the bank that payment requests presented using your old debit card will be refused. An Important Step The other action I would recommend is to check with your...

Q: 

Can i get ticketed in the state of NJ if i bought a car in PA with factory tint on the front windows?

A:  The factory tint will not exceed NJ state laws (they do allow some tint, almost all cars have tinted glass), if they are really dark it''s aftermarket and it''s removable. Whether you bought it like that or not is irrelevant, if your car is illegal, you can get a ticket. You should be okay driving the car home, if you get pulled over they should understand that you just bought the car. But you will have to get the tint removed if it is against the law in your state to have it. Or else everyone would just buy cars in another state where tinting is legal and bring it back to their state....

Q: 

The Ole'' bait and switch: Do I have a legal case?

A:  I wish to inform you that if your new employer had clearly promised you that you will be given new job and you may leave your old job then you can claim compensation for loss caused to you and may even demand job from your new employer. In this regard the new employer had not put clearing of driving test as a pre condition when he told you to leave the job. As there never existed a pre condition for clearing driving test therefore the basis of your leaving old job and joining new job is as per your new employer''s statement. Further, you have relied on the assertions of the new job employer and therefore now you may apply the rule of estoppel in which new job manager should be estopped from denying the job to you. However, if clearing of driving test was made a pre condition to new job...
