My friend owns a little corner store that i believe is in the ghetto and somehow he ended up owing the government $130,000.00. How could you owe the government that much money? But just recently Hurricane Ike came through Houston and his shop got looted by but i was only informed that they smashed all the windows and i doubt you would have to owe the government $130,000.00 for window repair. So if you could list some of the possibilities it would be appreciated =]
uhm, and i would like to mind my own business. But this friend of mine is actually my father. For one thing, he only told me half of the story so what exactly do you expect me to do? And this money my father owes the government, makes me if my brother and i could go to college or not. So if i don’t have the finicial support to go to college. I need to get a job before a last minute notice.
Uhm…My older brother told me that my dad hired a “tax professional” to take care of his taxes and stuff but somehow the guy was making mistakes for 4 years and after 4 yours my dad finally found out but now its alittle too late since the money is such a large sum now so he decided to hire a lawyer. Is there anything he can do at this point?

Ok so about year ago I got into a accident (I drive a c230 mercedes benz sport). I was waiting behind a suv at a red light and some guy comes from behind at like 50 mph and hits me well I hit the guy in front but nothing happens to the guy in front because he had a reece on the back of his suv so he walked away with no scratch on his car. But my cars front and rear were smashed in literally, but the air bags didn’t deploy so It wasn’t to bad I believe this is because I was at a standstill and I took the hit directly so it wasn’t that bad. Any way my insurance company said they will repair it and that it wasn’t a total loss. They estimated about 15000$ or so, but in the end they paid about 26000$ for all the repairs. I bought the car at about 32000 to 34000 or so. Now about a year later a company sent me a letter telling me I can get money back for the diminished value on my car. They are asking for a third of anything I get back. They also said they were part of the state adjustor’s. I’m guessing I will get back like 10 grand or so, but is there a way to get back all the money without a company taking a chunk out of it?…..Oh and also the guy who hit me didn’t have insurance at the time, but I’m guessing he does now so how could that effect me?
sorry I made the explanation to long just read the last part of the paragraph I wrote if you dont want to read the full story.

I live in California. My car was in an accident and the other insurance company paid for damages. I chose how and how much of the money to spend on the repairs. Now they are asking to come and verify the repairs by sending an agent to look over the car. Do I have to repair the car, and do I have to allow them to come and view the repairs?

I was driving to work yesterday on the freeway in typical morning commuter traffic and I see brake lights ahead. My lane stops…. the guy in front of me stops, I stop, the guy behind me doesn’t stop and smashes right into me.

He pulls around next to me and over to the side and I pull over behind him and put the car in park, then I see he has pulled back out and is driving down the exit ramp. At first I gave him the benefit of the doubt and thought he wanted to exchange info off of the freeway so I followed him, then he plows through the intersection and screeches into a shopping center parking lot and is driving super crazy.

While driving through the lot, he was swerving to avoid pedestrians and other cars. At that point I decided to call the police instead of risking getting into another accident. So I call tell them what is happening. We drive out the back side of the parking lot and he goes toward a residential area. I read the plates to the operator and she says thats the most important part and I can stop following.

So I pull back into the parking lot and wait for CHP. The officer took my report and after I was done talking to him, I spoke with a couple guys that worked at the oil change place next to where I was parked. They asked if the guy hit me and took off because they heard the tires screech and saw him speed into the parking lot and keep looking back to see if I was following.

So anyway, this morning the officer called me and said that he found the guy and of course he doesn’t have insurance. What I want to know is, what is my course of action to collect from this guy? I shouldn’t have to pay for my repairs.

The best was that the guy told the officer that he pulled into the parking lot to exchange info but that I never showed. The officer asked why he didn’t call it in and he had no answer. So then I told him what the oil change people said so he said he was going to talk to them and get back to me.

I am just thankful it was just me in the car and that my 1 year old wasn’t with me like he usually is in the mornings.

How do I go about collecting reimbursement for my repairs?
Sorry for not stating this before. I got the estimate yesterday and my insurance company said that since it is under my deductible that they won’t go after him and I have to file a claim with his insurance company…this was before I found out he is not insured. Also, I did file an accident report, I apologize that wasn’t clear when I mentioned the California Highway Patrol officer who took my report.

I am sure this is going to be a lot of work but I know I am not “out of luck” because we have small claims court here in CA where you can sue for judgments under $8000. You don’t need a lawyer for small claims. I would appreciate answers from people that actually have experience with this. Thanks!
