    I had a single vehicle accident that resulted in my car being totaled. I was not injured and I did not damage any property (ran into a ditch). I only have liability insurance. If I file a claim will I get any money for my vehicle or would it do nothing but raise my insurance premium?

    Is this true. I am 27, and single, I did not make much last year because I was disabled from a car accident. I was not even able to collect disability, the insurance company did not pay out. I had to live off my savings. So I only made money last year for about 6 months, do I still have to do my taxes? If yes, or no, how much must I have made that makes me file taxes, and how much is it to not file taxes? Also, do I have to claim the interest I paid on my home, or is that up to me, and benefits me if I want to use it right?

    The accident happened last night on highway 101 near Studio City, Hollywood, the car went out of control and started swriling then hit the divider and bounced back to the soulder of the road. Luckily no one was injured and no other vihecle was involved, yet the car was nearly 70% damaged and of coursed disabled. The car’s been towed home, but I don’t know what’s the next step in the procedure. I have AAA membership full covered, now should I call them? What should I say on the phone?

    If you are hit from behind on a single carriage road who is responsible? If the rear car driver refuses to accept responsibility will the front car driver’s insurance company still be able to pursue a claim against the third party?

    If both parents die in a car accident and they have children will they automatically become the beneficiary? And how long will it take in any life insurance cases for the family to receive the money?
    If you don’t know one of your loved ones had life insurance and die, will you be automatically notified, or do you have to like go and ask if they had it because their stingy and just won’t tell you?
    and how do you go about asking if they just don’t tell you?

    I drive a 96 BMW 328is, and I was in a front end collision with an SUV that was turning out of a driveway while I was going 20 mph at the time of impact and the other driver was basically stationary when we collided. It ended up causing about $3000 worth of damage to my car (possibly more if I can prove that damage I found after getting my car back is accident related), and the car was not drivable afterwards. During the accident, I was jerked pretty hard and slammed up against my dash, but there wasn’t any noticeable immediate pain. For the first 24 hours or so I felt fine, and I told the adjuster that when I talked to her (not trying to rip anyone off here, just trying to get what’s owed to me). However, the night after the accident, I started feeling pretty bad pain in my lower/mid back, neck and knees.

    I don’t have much experience with hospitals aside from 2 ER visits when I was very young, so I really did not know what to do regarding this pain. At the time I did not know that this kind of pain is something I would go to the ER for, and I really didn’t want to just go get some painkillers from a doctor because I have had bad experiences with them making me sick. I decided that I would consult a chiropractor after the weekend. On Monday (the accident happened on the Thursday prior to this Monday), my pain had heightened as the weekend went on, and I started getting calls from solicitors very early in the morning and pretty much ignored all of them. Then, I got a call from a chiropractor in a medical center nearby my house, and decided to make an appointment there, since I don’t have a doctor I regularly see. He took x-rays and diagnosed me with soft tissue damage, and he started treatment right away as he could tell that I was in pain.

    Not only have I had to go to these hour long therapy sessions once or twice a week on top of working full time, but the accident has had other adverse effects on my life as well. I work as an Engineering Co-op, and there are times where I may have to lift heavy things or do a job in an uncomfortable position. Lifting anything heavy has been out of the question ever since the accident, and one project I had was to tape a layout of a welding station we are installing in our plant. Because I was taping it on the floor, it required me to hunch over for long periods of time, and a project that should have taken me two work days (absolute maximum), took me a week because of the stress on my lower back and knees. Also, whenever I was not on the factory floor, I was in extreme discomfort sitting in my office chair every single day for the past six weeks. Then, when I was on the floor I had to walk around in steel toe boots, which caused me to experience extreme discomfort in my knees, so I was pretty much in pain the entire work day, every single day. Also, when I tried to sleep, that is when the pain has been at its worst. My lower back has been hurting very bad when I try to sleep, and I feel like I have been sleep deprived for the last month or so because of it.

    My quality of life has also been affected by the accident. It has been the main thought in my head ever since it happened, and it has been the most stressful six weeks I have had in a LONG time, especially since the auto insurance claim has not been going smoothly at all. I also haven’t been able to go to the gym or do any real exercise at all since the accident.

    It has now been about six weeks (eight visits) since I started treatment, and the pain has finally settled down and the chiropractor plans on releasing me within the next week or two. I have racked up about $1000 in medical bills, and my insurance has medpay coverage. How much could I be entitled to? Are there any other factors I might want to take in to consideration or other points I should try to make to the insurance company?

    I scrapped a guard rail just bad enough to dent my passenger side fenders and door. The guard rail doesn’t have a scratch on it. Is it illegal not to report it since the car integrety is still intact?

    I’m not even kidding. I’m 19 years old and I have been in college for a year now. However, I feel like I learned nothing about adult things while I was in high school. They did not teach me about things that I would have to deal with when I got to the real world. Things such as:

    -Buying a home
    -Credit scores
    -Government paperwork

    Heck, I didn’t even learn about streets and avenues! I feel like I know nothing about the real world and my single mom is always too busy. Of course, I have the common sense to figure certain things out but I feel like I am just lost as an adult.

    The reason car insurance cost so much they say, is to cover injuries, then they dont pay cause they say it was not from accident, if we had national healthcare like other countries , we could spend money on healthcare rather then insurance industry that is gov lobbiest and multibillion dollar industry , that we are forced by law to pay!!!
    Are you for or against?
