Is owner of vehicle responsible
Posted 01 October 2012 - 08:54 AM
How can I fnd out if she had insurance? If she had insurance at the time of the crime is her insurance company responsible for any payment to me or for my medical bills, loss of salary? Is this a crime if she did not report her car involved in the use of a felony?
I am really in need of some legal advice, I have not been able to find an attorney who will handle the case properly and am forced to now try and handle it on my own. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

If she won't cooperate, you can't, unless you sue her.

Probably not, but it will depend on the terms of the policy and the laws of your unidentified state. Generally speaking, insurance will not indemnify for willful/criminal acts. Unless you can prove that the owner knew or had reason to know that this attack was going to happen, your likely recourse is only against the attacker.

No, but one would assume you already reported it. Right?

The attacker/driver himself is, of course, liable for the damages caused by his conduct and you may certainly sue him to try to recover for your injuries and losses. Whether that will do any good depends on whether he has any assets from which you may collect.
How you might find out whether the vehicle was insured and, if so, what the policy covers depends on the laws of the state in which this occurred. Your lawyer should know how to pursue that.
