Can I file a Civil Lawsuit against a person I helped bail who eventually failed to appear and refuses to co-op?
Question by xapryl: Can I file a Civil Lawsuit against a person I helped bail who eventually failed to appear and refuses to co-op?
I had a friend who got arrested for “no proof of insurance” and “driving without a license” (he is 31). He went to jail because of those things and a prior warrant for arrest for a previous “driving without proof of insurance” almost 3 years ago.
He had the money to bail himself out but needed someone to vouch for him obviously. I was ill informed by the bail bond company on just how responsible I was for him completing all of his responsibilities – but that’s why they always say “don’t sign without reading” –
So he shows up to both court dates, he starts to pay fines and then the judge requests him to keep coming in every so many months to follow up. He never returned again. He fled to California. (this all started in Nevada)
Meanwhile he kept telling me that everything was in order – basically lying to me that he had been following up on all of this and was in good standing. (I got a new phone as a present from my parents and obviously a new number. The Bail Bonds company weren’t able to call me but sure enough….
A few months later my car was repossessed. I found out and tried to get in contact with this guy who fled. He kept telling me he would get it taken care of. A week later nothing.
They took my car on May 8th. I have been without a car since – and unemployed because it just so happened that my car was taken right after I was laid off from my job. Because of the timing I also had to quit my classes at college because I had no one to give me a ride, nor the money for a cab, and the bus schedule won’t allow me to get to class on time so I missed all my finals. I am having a horrid time finding a job and even if I do, I fear my wages would be garnished to pay off the bail bond.
So now I cannot get my car back until he either shows up and goes to jail, pays off the bail amount that is owed to the bail bonds company or I do. Since I have no job and own nothing else… I can’t pay it off myself. My car is not worth anything since it’s just an old 1999 Neon… barely worth 800 bucks.
I even got in touch with his new wife in California and tried to urge her of this importance. She is unwilling to cooperate and neither is he. So…
My question obviously is… Can I file a Civil Lawsuit against him for punitive/compensatory damages, emotional distress… etc?

You possibly can, however, you did sign for him in good faith. Which shows lack of judgment on your behalf. You should never post someones bond unless you are 100% faith full in them meeting their obligations as well.

Feel free to consult with your insurance representative to get their input on how much total coverage you will need for your trip.
The small amount required to buy worldwide travel insurance as compared to the high costs of replacing plane tickets, hotel accommodations, and other expenses associate with international travel makes it clear that you should make this very basic investment.
