If that is true you may be better off in the long run.

If it works out perfect, all the civil suit gets you is a piece of paper saying he owes you money, that's it. The courts aren't involved in collecting, and you will never get any money out of him. (Think O.J...)

And he would be heading in to court with a previous court case showing he waa not convicted of criminal activites.

Post a flyer with the story at all the nearby bike rallys, and hope what we all want to happen does happen.

As long as he had auto insurance they would have some liability. Anything you may have to go after him personally for can be collected it is just more difficult. But you are correct that the court don't collect for you. But if his car is in his name you can certainly get that. At least you can in Mi.

I can't imagine how long you would be in court to get his car. And if it got to that point, we all know what the car would look like when he handed it over to you.

Florida is interesting,
that is the state where the laws state you can declare bankruptcy and keep your 6 million dollar home, because someone that is broke shouldn't be homeless too.

It is goofy how things may vary in different states. I know that my daughter had won a judgment against someone in small claims court and when the payment wasn't made all she did was fill out a form and tell where there vehicle was. After ownership verification was made they towed the car and was gonna put it in auction to retrieve some of the award granted to my daughter. The owner of the car come up with some money real quick after that repo.

Yep, goofy. Florida would let you keep hide your home, but would tear you up over a $200 bad check.

I was with a northern buddy that started a little business down in Florida. Up north a bad check was nothing, it wasn't worth filling out a police report. Down in Florida it was a felony.

His business was mail order, and people from other states would do the bum check thing. But since it was a felony in Florida, a little paper work, and it was amazing how fast these people got a knock on the door from local law enforcement, and how quick the money would come it.

The same person could write the bum check to a local business there, and the local cops would do nothing. But they would run out there once Florida sent the felony notice.

In 2009 my father was killed by Thomas Dvorak in West Palm Beach. He was driving on a suspended license for his second DUI. All he got was time served for the night or two he spent in jail for driving on a suspended license.

Florida does have some weird ways to look at things.

Some years back a Latino burglar was bitten by a dog when breaking into a home in Lake Worth, FL. He sued the homeowner's and won because he couldn't read the "BEWARE OF DOG" sign.

Interesting how the lawyers protect their own!

Why does that no surprise me. They would expect other states to enforce their felonies but when someone owes $50k in back child support from another state they just move to Florida and they don't have to pay cause Florida refuses to enforce it. F'd up state man, F'd up state.

well, at first read, your not going to like my asking you: why IF YOU KNEW he was an asshole did you ALLOW him to remain behind you?

WHY didn't you pull off and let him get far away BEFORE you proceeded?

he was not out for you specifically, and that is criminal, you can't prosecute him for that. that the state will have to be left to do BUT you can go after him if he has anything registered of value. i think its a tort claim (but i dont practice law, and not giving advice. [that would be 'illegal']).

but i will add any defense lawyer/attorney (if the defendant has money or a lawyer in the family) will loose you as soon as you answer his questions poorly, if he is A, any good, B, thinks it could have been 50% your fault for not doing somthing before it actually happened.

if one doesn't get out of the way when you can, from an asshole acting out, it's half ones fault for not doing so.


I would go after him for a whole new bike and half of everything he owns.

send him a bill, and after he defaults (which is what you want), lein everything.
