If someone is in a car accident and gets killed was that just an accident or was it your sons time to go home to God?
It depens entirely on how you choose to look at it. If you do indeed believe in God and that he controls these sort of things then I would say there is no such thing as an accident...that it was infact intentional on God's part to call him up. Another way to look at it is that the world is a host...

Call a criminal lawyer if you can afford it. The son needs to turn himself into the police before they catch him. If you can not afford a lawyer, take him in to the nearest police station.

The owner of the car is liable for the accident itself and the damage. However, the insurance company might have to pay for it, depending on the owners insurance cover.
Sorry, the company that insures the car will cover it (dependent on the coverages and any exclusions), and yes your premiums (if the person is at fault) will likely increase.
Why would a father take a daughter's car after 3 years of payments even if she was 2 payments behind but had an agreement with the bank and all he had to do was agree but instead he stole the car?
I can't answer why he took the action he did. I will say that he did not "steal it". If the lending agreement was in default the vehicle is subject to being repossessed and it is the legal right of the lien holder to do so. A lending agreement is considered defaulted if even one of the terms is n...
My ex left a car in my driveway He said he doesnt want it and that I should sell it We never had a title for it and he doesn't know where the receipt is?
In order to sell the car to anyone, you have to have a title, or a receipt that would let you get a new one. Lacking that, about all you can do is call the city and tell them you have an abandoned car you want taken away.

The one exception could be that laws governing SOL's for litigation action state the action must be filed before the SOL expires. There is a small chance th...

Can you insure a car titled to your son Or will it have to be in the parents name He will be listed as principle driver of the car on the parents policy Would this effect an accident claim?
The vehicle must be insured by the person whose name appears on the title. Only the person who holds the title/deed to property has insurable interest in said property, thus they are the only ones who can take out an insurance policy to protect it. If the parents wish to insure the vehicle on the...

If you had an accident and your car was the only one damaged can you pay for it without reporting it.?

A person has a car and cannot afford it anymore and wants his friend to have car and take over the payments. However his friend lives in a different state. What state does the insurance have to bein?
Which ever state the driver lives in. But more important, the friend needs to have the car titled in his name. I sell cars, and have for 15 years. I can't tell you how many times I've seen people's credit ruined by trusting someone else to make their payments. Guess who is responsible for late pa...
My pregnant girlfriend's car was totaled while it was parked seeing it she became very emotional crying and had a hard time breathing The people in the car that hit hers left the scene Can she sue?
If you can find the people who hit the car yes, I wouldn't count too much on the emotional distress angle though, just property damage.
If you had a vehicle repossessed and the vehicle was sold at auction how long would the financial institution have to legally receive payments for balance owed.?
From expierence, we had a vehicle repossesed over 10 years ago. I don't know if it's legal or not, but the company has been getting money from us ever since. I don't even know how much we still owe, they do not send a statement or anything.
Then you're still responsible for the car payments. If insurance doesn't cover the entire cost, then you have to make up for the remainder.
Yes but be aware your insurance company sets their own rules for this kind of thing.
What if your car is taken without permission and a police car hit your car and causes damage to the police car and your car is your insurance liable.?
It depends on who is at fault.

If the driver has proper insurance, they may cover it,...
It depends on whos fault the accident was, yours or the other driver.
Is there a law in Illinois concerning left hand turns in accidents stating that the car turning left is liable?
No. If the car turning left is in his proper lane and has the proper signal he is not liable.

How can car gears break my boyfriend was helping a friend plus he started out by saying after that he broke the axel plus now saying that he broke the gears. Is that possible?
Yes gears can "break" but its very rare. You don't state the mileage of the vehicle but its more likely they have "worn out" rather than suffered a mechanical failure. If he has to repair the the gearbox and the axle is the car worth the investment? It must be very old or has suffered significant...
What happens when you are in an accident and the other person has no licence or insurance but the vehicle he was driving has insurance?
Auto insurance follows the vehicle primarily, not the person. The problem is going to be that I will guaranty that the person is not listed as a driver on the insurance policy for the car he was in. Most likely, the company will pay your claim with no problem as long as you don't appear to be loo...

I would have to say 'let the insurance handle it' assuming the 16 yr old in question was covered by the insurance. Otherwise, I'd have to say that 16 yr old is in for the grounding of a lifetime, and forced to pay the damages to both cars. But I'm kind of known for being a little harsh at times.

Not unless you have something in writing that states that they are to make the payments.
If you called the creditor and arranged payment for late car note and he agreed to the arrangements but repoed your car isn't that somehow wrong?
Yes, its SO wrong. Same thing happened to me and the day I was to wire them the funds, they repoed my car. So, I got an attorney, filed bankruptcy and they gave me my car back. Now, they will get 1/2 of what we agreed on. Idiots.
Depends on state law. You may want to tell your boss and /or your insurance agent.
Yes. Sure, the car shouldn't have been there and perhaps was there illegally but that does not let anyone off the liability hook for causing property damage or injury while driving a vehicle. It would be a different story if you were driving in your own lane and the other driver, illegally parked...

My 88 year old father bought a used car yesterday and He now realizes he wants to reutrn becaseu he can't afford the insurance can he?
Only if the seller agrees. Legally there is no buyer's remorse or what is commonly called cooling off period. That is a myth. You bought the car so unless the seller agrees to take it back you are legally bound by the deal.

In most cases, if you give permission to someone else to drive your car (making them a permissive driver) and they cause an accident, your insurance will cover the costs.If the person who was driving your car doesn't have their own insurance, they may be on the hook financially for damages to the...
No, you do not have to pay for insurance on the vehicle once it has been totaled because it is not driveable.If a vehicle is totaled and the insurance company provides a check paying for it, the vehicle receives a new type of license in most states.

Going over rough terrain, like over rocks on a dirt road, could cause this to be knocked loose.
A car “accident” could be many things, like a teenager running over a curb, or even someone spilling coffee inside a car.Technically, these are “accidents.” But a crash, wreck, or collision implies that one vehicle came into contact with another and that one person is liable for the damages.
