Q: 

Will the whole world change over to driving on the left this century?

A:  Not a hope. I don''t agree with the righthanded, lefthanded thing you are on about. Who says that the percentage of right-handed to left-handed people is 82 to 18?? Anyway I am left-handed and have no problem driving or doing any other physical activity.In fact I function better than most right-handers as it is commonly known that ''we'' use our brains better than you lot. Mike, the answers aren''t going to be any different just because you''ve re-worded the question. Driving on one side of the road is no more dangerous than driving on the other - I''ve had plenty of experience of both, face up to it. After changing gears I put both hands on the wheel-no problem Mounting a bike from either side -no problem Reversing up a steep hill I use the mirrors and both hands...

Q: 

Can I get medical compensation for an accident that happened a few months ago?

A:  Yes, you should definitely get your insurance compant involved. You may have a hard time collecting compensation if you already signed settlement agreement. This is why it''s so important to wait at least a week or more before settling a car accident claim, because injuries often manifest themselves much later. Your two options are making a medical payments claim to your own insurance, or filing a negligence claim against the woman that rear ended you. Talk to a car accident Lawyer to get legal advice regarding your options for collecting compensation for your damages. Good luck....

Q: 

After winning a breach of contract case, than collections?

A:  "Now, collecting the money or the amount breach.. is a whole new ball game. Why is that?" Given the vague and colloquial nature of your "ball game" statement, I can't even begin to guess how to answer your question. "Assuming the person whom i am suing is going through a bankruptcy or cannot get the money? would their wages be garnish?" If the person against whom you have a judgment has filed for bankruptcy, you cannot take ANY action to enforce the judgment. If not, then you can have the sheriff serve a wage garnishment. "If the person have a large net worth of nonliquid assets (real estate, wills, trust funds) would that be liquidized to pay for the settlement?" First of all, a will and a right to receive money from a trust are not assets. You...

Q: 

I just hit a car at red light , and nothing happened, but he got my insurance?

A:  Take photos of the front of your car - license plate and vehicle identification number (its on the plate on the dash or on a sticker on the side of the door). Then put those in a safe place and hold on to them. I''d keep them for at least 3 years. Since you gave the guy your insurance information - he will call in a claim if he thinks he has damage. In the mean time - don''t sweat it. If you get a call from your insurance company that means that he filed a claim and you will need to make sure that you cooperate with your company in the investigation of the incident. You may want to check with your agent and make sure that your account shows the correct phone numbers and address. You can also let your agent know what happened and see what they suggest. Lots of...

Q: 

What do I have to do to be covered by guilty party''s insurance in an auto accident?

A:  That is what happens when you deal with their insurance, not yours. Turn this over to your insurance company and let them deal with it .... you pay them to do so. Of course his insurance is going to take the other persons side, that is what he pays them for. Sorry to inform you but my guess is that their insurance will not pay anyhow since he was not in contact with your car. Why did you not file the claim with YOUR insurance company? That''s what your policy says you are supposed to do! Depending upon what you told the other party''s insurer, you may have screwed yourself by dealing with the wrong insurance company. YOUR insurer has a fiduciary duty to both defend you and vigorously pursue any claims on your behalf. The other guy''s insurer has the same fiduciary...

Q: 

If I'm feeling sleepy on the highway, can I just pull over to take a nap? ?

A:  its much more fuel efficient to sleep while driving Warren said it best. even if they do come after yu fer doin tht i think if yu tell them yu didnt want an accident they might let yu off the hook If you can pull all the way off the highway I dont see why not. However you should just get off at the nearest exit, find a parking lot or side street and sleep there. Much safer and you wont have to deal with a state highway patrolman, just a reg city cop. Yes always pull over. It''s better than killing yourself and others. I think the police will understand....

Q: 

I was in an accident without insurance but I was not at fault, what are my rights and liabilities?

A:  The attorney who previously answered this question was partially right.  However, he or she is unaware that Indiana does not have a cell phone statute that prohibits use during driving.  Nevertheless, the point is that she did violate the duty to use reasonable care in the operation of her vehicle and that the breach did cause you damage.  You definitely have a claim and should hire Indiana counsel asap. The police officer was absolutely, positively wrong in stating that you were at fault for not having insurance.   Having insurance has nothing to do with the cause of the car accident.  However, you have violated the Indiana Fininacial Responsibilty Act and face a 90 day suspension of...

Q: 

I was injured as a passenger in a drunk driving accident. What compensation am I entitled to?

A:  That is a lot of damages for which you could seek compensation. It really depends on the insurance company, and you should definitely get a lawyer to negotiate your settlement. To give you some idea of the money to which you''re entitled, consider these points: Medical Bills: You are entitled to compensation for all your medical expenses related to the accident.Lost Income: You can get compensation for the 5-6 months you were unable to workPain and Suffering: Considering the severity of your injuries and the impact on your psyche, you can likely get considerable compensation for non-economic damages.This is really a substantial case, and you would be very well served contacting a car

Q: 

My drivers license number was incorrectly transcribed on a ticket. If i go 2 court, will it be thrown out?

A:  Coincidentally, there was an article about ticket myths on the Yahoo! homepage today. Here''s an excerpt - "Myth No. 1: If the officer makes a single mistake on your ticket, the case will be dropped. A ticket should be seen as an accusatory instrument and a basis for prosecution that must be factually valid, says Matisyahu Wolfberg, an attorney from Spring Valley, N.Y., who represents defendants in traffic cases and lists tips on his Web site www.notspeeding.com. Clerical mistakes, such as a wrong number or wrong order of a person''s name, are usually overlooked. Material mistakes, like the identity of the driver, the direction of travel, the street where the citation occurred or the description of the vehicle, can usually help a...

Q: 

Can I repo my own car?

A:  Yes... but I believe that was called "grand theft auto" Why dont you try to talk to the dealership or the bank(s)? Then again I know nothing about law... lol whoever wrote that **** is an idiot. i dont know anything about law either. thats why i asked on here for advice! if you dont know what you''re talking about dont write **** on here dumb ass! Easy there buddy... I was just trying to inform you that breaking into a car the is not under your name is theft. Also I wanted to to have you consider approaching the dealership or the lending back to see if they can have any advice or some sort of way out for you.
