• 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!

    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.

    Two months ago I was rear-ended in a car accident while stopped at a red light in the left turn only lane. The at fault driver is trying to blame me for the accident. She told the police officer after he arrived on the scene of the accident that she thought that I was going to make the left turn, but i did not turn so she rear ended me. This is also in the police report. The at fault driver has no car insurance. And was not insured at the time she rear-ended me, so she was given a ticket and told to appear in court. And when she went to court for the ticket, her case against me got dismissed. I was not told to appear in court for that and my dad says that I should have been sent a letter in the mail to appear in court for this. Is he right about this? I have already filed a civil claim against her and I will be taking her to court and suing her for my deductible, because although she did not have auto insurance, I do have full coverage car insurance on the vehicle that she damaged. Do I have a case? Sorry to make this so long, but I have never been in an accident before.

  • 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?

  • I am getting divorce, do I get social security benefits?

    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... show more
    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.
