We hit a cow and it was unavoidable. The owner of the cow did not have liability insurance. What can we do to recoop our expenses? We live in the state of Arkansas. We totaled our car and have medical expenses. We didn't have comp. or collision coverage.

My response:

Well, you could still sue the farmer, but that would take time. Perhaps, in order to settle the matter, and to save himself from being sued, you and he might want to settle for "Old Bessy"; that is, in exchange for a full and final release, he would have the cow butchered and have the various cuts of meat wrapped and shipped to you. Considering the cost of meat, and getting the bargain of the equivalent of an entire cow, that would sound to me to be a good deal.

Most farmers have liability insurance coverage. Contact the farmer. Then contact his insurance company. Present your claim for property damage to your car by obtaining an estimate of the cost of repair. Present your personal injury claim after you have finished treatment. You should be reimbursed for medical bills, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.

Come back to us with further information after your injuries are cured. Beware that some states have deadlines as short as one year within which to file a lawsuit for personal injuries or property damage.

Dear Shoppe:

Our writer said, "The owner of the cow did not have liability insurance." He also said he didn't have insurance, either.

My response:

"Hay" George! How are you? Good to have you "mooooooooooving" through the boards with such terrific answers. One "cud" think the puns would stop with this, but I doubt it.

Best regards,
