• Auto accident - now a civil case?

    I had an auto accident when I borrowed a friend’s truck, I don’t have any vehicle insurance of my own, but his insurance did cover me, though I did not realize that this was only to state minimum (CA).

    I had an auto accident when I borrowed a friend’s truck, I don’t have any vehicle insurance of my own, but his insurance did cover me, though I did not realize that this was only to state minimum (CA). Unfortunately I rear ended a car, hardly any damage to friends truck but the car was damaged and the driver had some soft tissue injuries. It turns out that she was uninsured, the reason claimed is her parents took her off their insurance without her realizing. I know that I am still liable for the damage I caused, the damages are $4000 above friends insurance limit and the driver has informed me that she will sue in the small claims court for the outstanding $4000. I would try to pay her and settle it but unfortunately I’m out of work at the moment. In nearly 40 years of occasional driving I haven't been involved a civil case so I just have a few questions: 1: The girl who I rear ended was aged 17 at the time though she is now aged 18, if being aged under 18 would have delayed or even prevented her from suing me, I’m assuming it will not be any issue now? 2: Although not a good situation, though as she has no insurance company behind her and as far as I know she is taking action through the small claims court without a lawyer, is it actually better that she will be suing me rather than through an insurance company and their lawyer? 3: As I basically have no money at the moment, is suing me and then applying to garnish future wage earnings something she could do?

    I’m 16 years old, and I want to go to the hospital (in Georgia, US) to get a surgery done (j pouch or rectal stump removal) but my mom can’t afford to stay with me and eat the hospital food. She can’t be there much because the hospital drive is 1 hour from home and back and my stepfather (who drives) works 4-5 days a week. Would it legally be allowed for me to stay at the hospital unattended for extended periods of time? What would the limit be? Thanks!

  • Is my friend right that he has to pay the mortgage on his ex wife's house?

    that she kicked him out of to move her boyfriend in PLUS child support for the sake of his kids? He thinks his kids will suffer if he doesn't but I think it's stupid.

  • Do I have a case?

    Best answer: Yes, a really good one in civil court, good luck on getting paid from an uninsured driver. But Dear old Dad is incorrect. The criminal case against the driver does not effect you and there was no need to be present. The driver's claim that she was expecting you to turn is not a valid defense which is why it... show more
    Best answer: Yes, a really good one in civil court, good luck on getting paid from an uninsured driver.

    But Dear old Dad is incorrect. The criminal case against the driver does not effect you and there was no need to be present. The driver's claim that she was expecting you to turn is not a valid defense which is why it was tossed. She is free to try again in civil court, but it won't work there either.

    Hello, i was renting a room with a co-worker and i realized she brutally beats her kids. I reported this to the child services because the kids are disabled and have special needs which is worser. She kicked me out of the place and threatened me saying she was going to falsely accuse me of owing her MONEY. WHICH IS not true !!! There is no evidence, no contract. So she cant prove anything. Also she never reported that she is renting rooms in her house which is also bad. What can i do in this case

  • Can my employer refuse to clock me out even when I am done?

    I work for a cocktail bar bussing tables. Last night my manager didn't want to clock me out after I finished my duties.

    I work for a cocktail bar bussing tables. Last night my manager didn't want to clock me out after I finished my duties. He said that he had added all the minutes I have been late since Jan 2018 and he found out that it added up to 2 hours. Because of that he was going to clock me out whenever he felt to do so. Then he sat on a table and started chatting with the bartenders. I waited for about 15 min. Then he came back to the station I was standing in and he clocked me out. He told me that next time he was going to take about 5 to 10 min after I finish my duties till he clocks me out until the 2 hrs of lateness have been covered. Now, while it is true that I was late an average of 2 min per shift since Jan 2018, can he legally have me waiting for as long as he wants till he clocks me out?

    Best answer: Social Security is a FEDERAL benefit. The state a person lives in has nothing to do with it. You can receive a divorced wife's benefit at age 62 if -

    1) You were married for at least 10 years and
    2) he is receiving a social security benefit (you can't draw off of his account if he himself isn't drawing) and
    3) You aren't entitled to a higher benefit on your own account. If your own benefit is greater than what you could get as a wife then you receive on your own earnings record. No one can receive two full benefits; one always reduces the other and
    4) You aren't married at the time.

    The 10 year duration of marriage requirement applies ONLY to the divorced. Otherwise it is one year in life cases and 9 months in death (survivor) cases.
