If you can get a copy of the police report you'll see some writing on the margin. That's where they assign blame and insurance companies can read the "code" for you. But in general, if you both were "cited", (that means that you were given a ticket) it probably means that you were both given partial responsibility for the collision.
If a person who sues you was the person responsible for the accident, they have little chance of winning the claim. But they have succeeded in scaring you, reducing the chance that you will sue them. It looks like you must counter-claim, and say that you are waiting for the outcome of the court-case on the ticket for the accident. If they are found guilty of causing the accident, no court will hold you responsible for their damages.
Interesting. My best guess is that you will be ticketed for the accident, and the driver of the other car will be ticketed for not having the kid strapped in. As far as fault for the kids injuries lies, ultimately with you. If the accident had not occured, the kid would not have been hurt. Both you and the other driver are going to get fined, but I think you are going to get the worse end of the bargian.
Yes, If you are not an insured under the definitions and terms of the owners insurance policy then you "can" be ticketed. Whether you will be ticketed depends on whether the attending officer checks his computer to see if you are in fact an insured driver or not.
It depends on a few factors, like what state you live in and whether the police were called to do a report. If there is a report, the officer will have found someone at fault, regardless of whether someone was ticketed. Your insurance company can also determine fault based on your state's laws and they way in which the accident occurred.
Contact your local DMV Go to your local police station and make out an accident report. Also give the information to your insurance company (who might contact the police for you). Leaving the scene of an accident is a crime. The person will be ticketed as well as being held responsible for the accident.
you would be the payer of the damage done to your own car.
'ticketed' really doesn't matter.........what matters is who is responsible or liable for the loss...........and no they do not have to 'replace' your totaled vehicle they owe you the acv (actual cash value) of your vehicle........
They are for accident, but you can possibly be ticketed for no car seat if police respond & find out.
No. Any fines incurred by the driver are his/her responsibility.
You both are in trouble. You mentioned that you were rear ended. The other person should have been ticketed for being at fault in the accident . You should have been ticketed for failure to have insurance. The DANCE has just begun. Hopefully no one was hurt. This may lighten your load.
It seems obvious that the person ticketed for improper passing is at fault, assuming that a left-hand turn could be legally made at this location and that proper signals were issued.
