    Yes, you have a case for damages including medical bills, pain, suffering, lost wages, etc. Even if the other driver does not have insurance you may be covered by an uninsured motorist policy from your own insurance (or the insurance of the driver of the car you were in.) Talk to a lawyer in your area who handles personal injury cases. They should take the case for a percentage of what you get and you will not have to pay up front.

    Curiosity killed the cat. The best thing you can do is recognize you dodged a bullet and let it go. If you go poking around and bother the prosecutor about why the charges were dropped, someone in the DA's office may decide to reopen the case.

    This is not a question that we can answer here. Lots of people have been convicted of DWI based on the officer's testimony alone. What matters is what the report says and what defenses you have. Without full information about the case, including a thorough investigation by the defense attorney, no one can give you proper advice about whether to take the plea offer. You should NOT post case information here. This is a public forum. No attorney-client privilege applies to discussions here....

    No, unless you happen to be flying the commercial aircraft on which you are traveling. For pilots an administrative suspension can cause problems even if the DUI is dismissed.

    You are barred from entering Canada while the charges are pending. If you are convicted that bar will continue for at least ten year, and perhaps longer depending on your record of other offenses. See my Avvo Guide on this issue at the link below.

    That is one of the questions you should ask the attorney when you meet. Generally, you are not required to notify an employer of a criminal charge. If, however, you have a company policy that requires notification that may change things. My suggestion is that you not talk to anyone about this until yo talk to your lawyer. Your lawyer can then advise you. Wayne R. Foote, Esq. Board Certified OUI Defense Law Specialist by the National College for DUI Defense, Inc. Law Offices of Wayne R....

    You need an experienced DUI lawyer involved early in the case. In addition to the TBI issue is the ADHD. The eye test used by police looks for a movement of the eyes. That same movement is also present in people with ADHD. The other tests are called divided attention tests. Those are extremely difficult for people with ADHD. Divided attention type testing is one of the things used to diagnose ADHD. If you had no drugs or alcohol in your system it I s too bad you refused the chemical...

    Much will depend upon what Indiana knows of his record, the length of lookback in Indiana, the facts of this specific case, and where he is licensed now. I assume from your address that he lives in Indiana. If Indiana is aware of the prior convictions he may face enhanced charges, including the possibility of a felony. My understanding is that Indiana looks back ten years. If a prior DUI conviction occurred in that time it can be counted for enhancing the charge. The penalties for...
