Legal Answers
Q. my father drove my truck was in a accident. I have full coverage he isn't on my policy but has insurance. Am I at fault?
A: Sorry about the accident. I pray your father and the other driver are recovering.

You don't have all the details yet so your course of action is not totally set. There are a few things you can do and know at this point.

Generally, if your Dad had permission to drive your truck and there are no exclusions on your policy then he would be a covered driver under your policy. You would report the accident to your insurance company and let them handle his civil defense - if he is at fault.

You are not at fault, generally, unless there is a reason your dad should not have been driving the vehicle or a mechanical problem with the truck that led to the accident. If he just was driving with your permission then the liability issue is generally just with him.

The insurance company will get your truck and see if it can be repaired or is totalled. They also generally start investigating the accident as soon as they are informed - particularly if there are serious injuries.

If your dad is not at fault and the other driver is, he can hire a lawyer to start working on his behalf to get a case against the other driver lined up.

Many lawyers who work in the personal injury field will be happy to do a free consultation to discuss where you stand at this point and see what, if anything can be done.

Definitely get in touch with your insurance company and your dad or you on his behalf may want to speak with your own attorney.

There are lots of unknowns at this point.

Q. How long I have to get a lawyer after car accident in MD
A: Sorry about your accident and rough birthday!

The Statute of Limitations for filing most claims related to the accident is 3 years from the date of the accident. This is for negligence claims.

There are also some issues dealing with insurance that need to be dealt with earlier. It is usually best to contact a lawyer as soon as possible to make sure you don't miss anything.

I agree generally with my colleague but would add this is a good conversation to have with your lawyer. I would hope you are working with a lawyer on a case of such magnitude.
