Question by Veronica C: Help!! What can I do to help my mother who was hit by an owner of a car with no insurance??
My mother was hit by this car as a pedestrian. Of course she took down his license plate number as well as other necessary information. Even the phone number of his “insurance.” Turned out that he wasn’t the owner of the car and that his dad/or bro who owned it had no insurance at the time of the accident. No lawyer will hear her case since they say they can’t get money from a guy with no insurance and my mom is stuck with hospital bills, ambulance bills, and therapy bills. Please if anyone has expert advice or could point me in the right direction, I’d greatly appreciate it. This is unfair and I’m desperate. We even tried to contact the guy but he said his lawyer and ours (who soon after rejected our case) should discuss everything. We’ve constantly hit dead ends. Please help!!!!!
My mom only has liability and through a small claims court she won’t get enough money to cover the ridiculous bills she’s been charged. Unfortunately, she cannot get medical insurance. We live in CA and I’m not sure why, but now that she is 60 or so she cannot get it. She has nothing to help her pay the bills right now and all I can wonder is how in the heck can this man sleep at night. My mom was in her right of way crossing within white lines and this guy hits her, doesn’t apologize, barely talks to her to giver her his info and then doesn’t want to be held accountable.
