Q: 

I''m being sued, I don''t know what to do, help?

A:  They sued you because you are the driver. You and/or your parents need to contact the insurance company that insured the car you were driving when the accident happened. I assume you turned in a claim to them when the wreck happened. Call them Now! Let them know you received suit papers. They need to know when (date/time) and how (process server, certified mail) you got the papers. They will have you bring the papers to their office or fax them in. The insurance company will hire an attorney to defend you. It''s in the auto policy. The attorney will get an answer to the law suit on file. Here''s why you have to call the insurance company right away - in most states - when you get served with suit papers, you have 30 days to get an answer on...

Q: 

Can I claim for loss of use?

A:  To cut a very long story short, I had an accident which was my fault in Feb. I was fully comp. The insurance co had my car picked up, sent to the garage and it was returned 3 weeks later. Unbeknown to me, when returned, it was on the back on a low loader as they couldn''t start it!?! I came home and obviously also couldn''t start it and phoned my insurance company to report the fault. They claimed on several occasions that it had nothing to do with them as it was not related to the accident. I fought my case for several weeks desperate to get my car back so eventually gave up. I called my own engineer out after 12 weeks without the car and...

Q: 

Should/Can I Bring Suit . . .?

A:  Look, another lawyer has told you there is a case. I don''t know what anyone else can add. As for the threats, you could likely get a protective order, but who knows if this is going to help much if someone is really out to get you. You may be in over your head.... But this paticular lawyer isn''t in a position to be able to take my case. I''ve found one guy who said he would like to meet with me about this for $50 an hour. He said if he was able to take the case, it would be an hourly deal and I can''t afford to pay out a bunch of money for nothing. I really need to find a lawyer that would take this case on a percentage basis, so he''ll have reason to work hard to

Q: 

My chances of winning?

A:  Is it specified on your invoice as to what parts you wanted returned? If not, you might have a little difficulty convincing a judge. I suppose it'll come down to credibility. Even if you do convince the judge, you'd only be entitled to the used value of the parts, not the cost to replace with new. If you are just talking about the exhaust tips I suspect that the used value might not be worth the effort. But that's up to you. Maybe just filing the lawsuit will flush out the original tips. I'm confused. Your post contradicts itself. "i told them to keep my original exhaust system ...." If you wanted your exhaust system, you should have taken it with you. Whether they offered to return it to your home (don't know why they would) and then changed their mind,...

Q: 

Bought a stolen car, contacted owner?

A:  Not sure how or why the police let you take the car home if it was stolen. There is something your not telling us. The dealer sold a stolen car and you SHOULD have a bill of sale to prove it and the V5. So you should be getting a full refund and then the dealer, registered owner and their insurance should be left to sort it out amongst themselves. do you really want to get into this further.also the car dealer is responsible for returning your money,since they sold something that didnt belong to them.your not seriously thinking of also paying the legal owner of the car off? That sounds like a major scam. Try to find a lawer that will listen to the case for no fee. If...

Q: 

Liability in Florida: Do I need to hire a personal lawyer?

A:  Your insurer should handle it for you at this point. Don''t worry about one person''s claims until you know more about how the case is developing. But do speak with the insurer and stay close to what is happening....

Q: 

Insurance will not pay out claim - please advise

A:  I haven't read a MI auto policy but I've read a lot of others and I've never seen an exclusion for drunk driving. Sounds like you've been snaked by a double dealing insurance company. Normally, the MI SOL for breach of contract is 6 years, but it's legal for written contracts to specify a shorter period. So, yes, if the contract says a year, you are beyond the contractual SOL for a lawsuit for breach of contract. However, bad faith is a tort and likely is not limited to a year. I suggest you google insurance bad faith lawyer (your city) and go talk to a couple. Bad faith lawsuits can often involve punitive damages far beyond just the cost of your vehicle so attorneys might be willing to take the case on a contingency, especially if that...

Q: 

repost: my chances of winning

A:  I'm afraid the answer won't change just because the story has changed (this follow-up still should have been posted as a "reply", just like your others, to the other thread). "these exhaust tips are 170 dollars each and the pipes cost around maybe 10 dollars. so total value of lost item is 360 dollars." Please also understand that what they cost new-now and the value of the missing used parts are two different things. You're free to sue if you like; we cannot know what some judge might make of it. I actually understood everything you said in your original post and my answer remains the same: Is it specified on your invoice as to what parts you wanted returned? If not, you might have a little difficulty convincing a judge. I suppose it'll come down...

Q: 

Should I seek an Attorney?

A:  anonymous 55: anonymous 55: "I talked to another Doc about this and he said I should seek a malpractice attorney" Doctors aren't attorneys and unless the doctor is an attorney and he is willing to take the case and try it himself then he doesn't know what he is talking about.  This isn't malpractice.  It is a physician running their practice the way they see fit and treating a new patient with caution because they don't know if they are drug seeking or a true pain patient.  It happens all the time.  I am in the medical field and I can assure you that you can "seek" as many malpractice attorneys as you want but since you don't have any damages you don't have a
