- Q. Wasn’t charged with OVI due to my injuries, hospital did a medical screen. Urine. Can it be used against me in lawsuit?
- A: Claims and lawsuits for personal injury require medical documentation, so your records would be admitted to show your condition after the accident. The at-fault party/company/insurance company may try to use evidence contained in those records to their advantage, if there is information that would allow them to do so. If you're worried, your best bet to try to combat some of those tactics would be to call a personal injury attorney, who may be able to help you with that. Good luck.
- Q. If you are in an accident but the police aren't notified, are you still liable for damages
- A: Yes, you are still liable. Trying to deceive an insurance company is insurance fraud. Insurance fraud is a felony. Failing to cooperate with your insurance company can invalidate coverage and make you personally responsible for damages instead of having your insurance company indemnify you. If you’re called to answer questions under oath and you knowingly state a falsehood, that’s perjury. You can weigh the risks yourself.
- Q. My daughter was in an accident. The other driver was ticketed for not yielding. My daughter did not have a license.
- A: I hope your daughter is doing OK. As long as it was determined that the other driver was liable for the accident, it should cover the vehicle. The insurance may try to fight you on this due to her being an unlicensed driver, but as long as that did not cause the collision, it should be responsible for the property damage and injury, if any. Please remind your daughter that it is a crime to drive without a license and also to drive without insurance. If she is a minor and you signed for her permit or you own the vehicle in which she was driving, you may be held responsible for damages should she be at fault for any other incident.
