Who is at fault in my motorcycle accident?
So I was in an accident 2 weeks ago and I am unclear about how this is going to work out for me. Basically I was driving down a straight road and some kid turned out in front of me at an intersection trying to make a left turn. Obviously I had the right of way and was not exceeding the speed limit.
The problem that is worrying me is that there was NO CONTACT made because I was able to slam on the brakes and swerve however the bike slid out and scraped along the road causing upwards of $3,000 in damage. Police came to the scene and the officer told the other involved party that they were at fault but they have yet to release the accident report and I don’t really know what to expect.
Does anybody have some info that they could share with me with regards to what the legal outcome should be? I could easily see this turning around on me if they decided they just wanted to blame the crash on “loss of control” or something like that.
To my knowledge, nobody was cited. I know I wasn’t. I am very eager to get the police report back but I am being told that they are “still awaiting details from one of the invloved parties.” I guess that’s the other guy. The insurance agency (Progressive) is also dragging their feet and being terrible with their communication. Not even a preliminary estimate after 2 weeks.
Who got cited, or who received a ticket? That is a good courtroom indicator. I think the driver should have been cited for failing to yield. You need a lawyer, folks making claims without one tend to get ignored by the insurance person.
How can I get my accident report papers to fill out from my boss. Hes not talking to me!!!! HELP?
My knee blew out bad slipping on the ice at my 2nd to last day before quitting this job I had. It was a side job cleaning laundromats. I did it for 4 months… I only met my boss the day I was hired and we only contact each other but maybe once a month. When I reported my accident, he was out of the country, he was SOOOOO PISSED and SOOOO MEAN about it I wanted to cry… Now that I have an appointment with a specialist tmrw… they just called to remind me and told me to bring my insurance card and/or copay… I have no insurance and this is a workers comp case but now my boss wont return any of my calls or anything, hes acting like it never happend and since I dont work there any more hes washing his hands of me…
My question is… do I NEED those accident report papers from him to go to my appt? Or do I just basically give the drs. HIS information like his home address, and business name so they can just straight up bill him!
PLEASE HELP with ANY advice. Im so out of luck its not even funny. What a jerk
Time for an attorney you can not do this by yourself
I injured my ankle at work, but I can’t tell how serious the injury actually is?
Hopefully someone here will understand the situation… I work as a loader at UPS and when I was pulling rollers into a truck, the tray fell just as the rollers started to come into the truck, crushing my ankle. It hurt pretty badly, but I was able to get my foot out, and walk around and work the whole night. It’s swollen/has a bump and hurts decently. I can stand the pain, but it does hurt. And moving it certain ways just doesn’t happen…
(No, I didn’t fill out an accident report though I know I should have, but there’s really a lot to go through to do that).
Does anyone have any idea what I could have done? And if it’ll be alright eventually without any treatment or anything?
How long ago did this happen? Normally you have 1-2 years to report injuries, as far as state statutes go. If it was recent, go to your risk manager or your supervisor and tell them the story, the full story, and be honest. Most injuries at work are reported late, for the exact reason you are late…you hoped that the pain would go away, and now it hasn’t. This wont be a problem, just tell them why you are reporting late. They will send you to a clinic to get checked out and to see what other medical treatment is needed, if any. Bottom line is that if you get hurt at work you need to report it. The last thing you want to do is nothing.
