Legal Answers
Q. A lady intentionally rammed my car (I have it on video). I am injured, what should I do?
A: First, insurance policies do not cover intentional acts. However, that should not stop you from making a claim against the driver. That would also depend on whether you suffered a “serious injury”. Sounds like she has assets if there were a valid disclaimer. Your UM coverage could potentially be triggered if there is no coverage. The police can decide if they want to investigate and prosecute. If her carrier accepts the claim, they will pay the repair of your classic car. Loss of value will not be a measure of dangers
