    Hit an abandoned car left in the traffic lanes

    I was driving my 18 wheel truck in Oklahoma City, OK, when I ran into an abandoned vehicle still in the traffic lanes. Do I have a case against the owner of the car?

    I am sorry, but I don't believe that you have a case. Yes, they should have moved their car, but it was your responsibility to avoid items in your lane. You have to maintain your speed in order to take evasive maneuvers if necessary. You will have you use your own insurance to pay for your truck repairs.
