    You can recover the cost of repairing your vehicle, rental car while your car is in the shop, towing fees, storage costs, etc. You cannot recover damages for personal injury if you were not hurt.

    Your friend needs to consult with an attorney as soon as possible. By lying, she could jeopardize coverage. She will need to tell the truth in the court proceeding since since she will be under oath. She should get an attorney to advise her as soon as possible.

    You should get an attorney to represent you on the personal injury case. The fact that you were not licensed has no bearing on liability. No need to worry there. If you were given one or more traffic citations for driving without a license, you can be convicted and these charges carry possible jail time and points. You should consult with an attorney about any charges and you should continue to take steps to get your license.

    The owner of the vehicle struck by the car should make a claim against their own insurance under the uninsured motorist coverage. They will have a deductible which will probably be $250.00. There is no point in trying to sue someone who is uninsured which is expensive, time consuming, and probably a waste of time since they probably do not have any assets. It is much simpler to make the uninsured motorist claim.

    You are responsible for the balance of the loan regardless of the fact that the car has been totaled. If you had collision coverage, you could submit a claim to your own insurance. If you did not have collision, then there is nothing that you can do if the accident was your fault.

  6. Difference between BAC and Preliminary BAC level I have a .12 BAC on most of my papers but on 1 have a Preliminary Bac of .18?

    The preliminary breath test is inadmissible in court and is used as a guide to determine if a breath test should be given. It is the .12 that counts. This is good for you. Since you were below .15, you can file for a hearing (very short time to file and $150.00 filing fee) with the MVA and you are eligible for a restricted license for work and alcohol treatment. Consult with an attorney to handle the MVA hearing and defense of the DUI charges immediately to protect your license and your...

    Your best chance of success is with an attorney. No matter what, make sure that you have complete documents from your alcohol treatment program and that they are up to date with a current letter about how well you are doing. You also need a detailed letter from your employer stating your need to drive to commute to work and during the work day, stating nice things about you, what you do for a living, etc. Have the individual(s) that you share a car with provide letters about the fact that...

    If ALL charges were nolle prossed, your insurance rates would not be affected and you may be eligible for expungement. Talk to your lawyer about this. However, if you received a probation before judgment or were convicted of an alcohol related offense, then none of the charges can be expunged ever. A probation before judgment does not result in points and does not affect insurance. A guilty finding of driving under the influence or driving while impaired does result in points and will...

    You can have your insurance company run the tag to find the owner of the vehicle. You can also call the police since it is a traffic violation to fail to give insurance information. If he does not have issuance, then you can make an uninsured motorist claim and will have a deductible. You also could make a collision claim against your insurance company and let them track down the other insurance company.

    The police officer must have a valid reason to pull you over in the first place. The information you provide is not sufficient to make that determination. You should consult with an attorney as soon as possible. Do not post any details on AVVO since this is a public forum. When you are charged with DUI, it is important to get an attorney immediately. There is a very short deadline to request an administrative hearing or your license will be suspended for at least 45 days and maybe longer...
