    I was rear ended on I-65 Southbound in Indiana back in March of 2018. State Farm (their insurance) determined that their driver was at fault and agreed to pay for any repairs towards damages on my vehicle as well as any injuries that may have been caused by the accident. I thought that was end of story, until now. State Farm recently contacted me letting me know that I owe them for the repairs because after reviewing the claim, they felt I was now to be at fault. First of all, according to the police report, their driver was at fault due to following to close. Second, can State Farm actually change fault after they already paid for repairs to my vehicle?

  • Is it bad to smoke a cigarette when filling up with gas?

    My wife is always saying I shouldn’t do it. She also got mad at me today because my car was running and I slammed the door while smoking and filling up. She was livid and I didn’t understand why.

    Someone slammed in to my car causing damages and injuries. So I've hired a lawyer. I was advised not to talk to the other driver's insurance company.

Well they've been calling and calling and I just ignored them. Now they've sent a letter saying that if I don't answer their questions in 2 days they'll just process the claim based on the available information. So can they do this cause I heard I have 1 year to pursue a lawsuit against them???? Or are they just bluffing?

    I have started working a summer job with a catering company and got my first paycheck yesterday. Since I have a learners permit but cannot practice driving right now since mom is driving her boyfriends truck which has a stick shift, I asked mom about me helping to pay for a rental car for a few weeks so I can get some much needed practice driving. Mom says that there are no rental car companies that would allow 17 year old with a learners permit to drive under any circumstances, so there is no way I could practice driving on one if she did rent one. She doesn't see anything wrong with my sister and I being passengers in the truck. Wondering if there are any rental car companies that would allow me to drive the rental car if mom is riding in the front seat with me. Will probably offer to split the price of renting a car for a week or two if so as I really need to get some practice driving and the truck is a tight fit for my mom, sister, and I. Would appreciate any information on rental car companies that would let me drive so I can try talk mom into us renting a car. I can try to get my license in September and am really worried about not getting to practice driving to so long.

    Oil doesn't miraculously turn to crap at 5k or 7.5k or 10k, Regular oil changes just helps keep the idiots who refuse to check oil levels between changes from running too low on oil (a catastrophic failure by comparison).

  • Is my mom being unfair about driving?

    Personally I think it's completely unreasonable, but I wanna be open to all perspectives and see if anyone has any advice/insight.

    Personally I think it's completely unreasonable, but I wanna be open to all perspectives and see if anyone has any advice/insight. I'm 20 years old and I don't have a license or even driven a car for that matter... but it's not like I haven't tried. When I turned 16 I wanted to take my permit test but my mom kept shutting me down and saying no and getting angry. I FINALLY took it when I was 18 (and passed). In my state permits are good for two years and it recently expired without me ever using it because my mom wouldn't take me driving (you have to have 20 hours driving with a parent/legal guardian before drivers ed). I recently took the test again so I have another permit. I'm now 20 and extremely fed up that my mom still won't allow me to drive... It's really sad when my mom has to drive me to work/hang out with friends. Whenever I bring up getting my license she gets really mad at me! I think a license is a necessity for most people and I HATE not having it!

    insurers are introducing high premiums for convicted drivers, and you can cut your premium with a black box where they check you don't speed

    like others, I am seeing the most excessive speed violation in 30mph limits, where I see cars doing 60+ on an industrial estate I cycle through, next to a school with kids on the pavement.

    I know its important, but how important is it really? I've had 3 cars where the timing belt was never done one car had 125,000 miles, another had, 140,000 miles and my current car has 195,000 miles. I know for a fact these cars did have timing belts. I am doing my timing belt this weekend on my current car because 200,000 miles on a car with a timing belt is definitely to much. However, I rarely hear of people doing timing belts, my father said he's never once done one on a car to be fair quite a few of his cars has timing chains but still the cars with belts he didn't worry about and they never broke. I am not saying that I'm going to push off the timing belt. but I feel as if the timing belt have turned into one of those things where its just over exaggerated on its importance. I've never heard of a car with 100,000 miles and a broken timing belt.

    So, today I was hit by a driver with no insurance. My car is very damaged. We have uninsured moterist coverage, so getting my car repaired or replaced shouldn’t be a huge issue. From what I understand, my insurance company (State Farm) will pay for my repairs and then sue the uninsured driver. Is that correct? What I’d also like to know is if Uninsured moterist insurance cover a rental car until a settlement is reached. I have no other car do drive, so I have to have something to get to work in. I think that since the other lady hit my car, my insurance company should have her pay for a rental. Am I correct? I’ve never been in this situation before, and am very very new to all of this. I’ll be calling my insurance agent tomorrow, but I wanted to see if anyone here could help or tell me what to expect. Thank you!
