    @braddavis, do you that I'd have to make a claim my own insurance company based on the "comprehensive" or "uninsured/underinsured" policy?

    Regardless, if someone causes you severe damage & pain, shouldn't it be THEIR responsibility (or their estate's responsibility or their insurance company) to compensate?

    hereandnow - "Doesn't it seem completely reasonable for the victims to sue this woman's estate to see if they can get compensation for their pain and suffering?...medical bills, work time lost, disability...and any other things not covered by a check from an insurance company?"

    All of those things are covered under the liability portion of your auto insurance policy.

    I don't understand your statement, RB. We are fairly well off and all three of our vehicles are over 10 years old. Just because you can buy something newer does not mean that it is necessary and as long as we can safely drive our vehicles and they are not needing frequent, costly repairs, we will drive them into the ground. We have no need nor desire to keep up with the Joneses and we also have very good insurance.

    "Charges against who?"

    Let's go out on a limb here and suppose that when the Police said, "they do not plan to file charges"... That it means there will be NO CHARGES filed. Therefore, the "against who" is not applicable.

    According to human law, sure.

    According to moral law, not in my opinion, cause they'd be taking money (if there is any) from her heirs who did no wrong.

    But that's just my opinion on it.

    nclissy - "I'm sure charges could have been filed against the woman who caused this accident [although she died] and the victims could have received a settlement from her insurance."

    She was driving a 1996 vehicle. I'm sure she wouldn't have enough to sue over, including insurance.

    Praying for those who loved her.

    Thanking God too that innocents weren't hurt.

    "Police said they do not plan to file charges."
