I went to court to fight the ticket and they didn't show. They threw the ticket out. What should be my next step? And if I write the court myself, what information should I include?
Call your insurance company, asap. They have an obligation to defend you in the suit. They will pay for the attorney, and pay any judgment up to your policy limits. BUT, if you delay notifying the insurance company, they might be able to deny coverage if they can show they were prejudiced (or "harmed") by your late notice. So it is critical to call them now.
If you have no insurance, then contact the Plaintiff's attorney and file a response in the court records. You file it by going to the clerk of court (located inside the courthouse), and handing them the document with the name of the case and case number on it.
As a practical matter, however, most attorney's will not go after someone who has no insurance and no other assets because there is no money to recover. You driver's license, however, can be suspended if there is a judgment against you from an automobile accident. So again, it is best to call your insurance company or hire an attorney.See question

Hi, there are a lot of variables to what is a "fair" or appropriate settlement. Did you have any pre-existing injuries? Are there other claimants? What is the extent of your shoulder injury? Has anyone recommended surgery for your herniated disks? You need to speak with an attorney. Most PI attorneys will offer a free consultation. A reputable PI attorney can advise you, and then if you want you can try and settle it your self or go through the attorney. Keep in mind once you settle, the case is over - forever. So if you settle it yourself, and later find out your injuries are worse, there will not be anything you can do at that point. Good Luck!See question
the work office or home address
If it is to an insurance company, send it to the adjuster who is working on the claim. That is the best way to reach the proper person. Be sure to include the claim number, as the mail is usually delivered to a mail room, and they will cross check the name with the claim number since adjuster's often change files.See question
A misdemeanor bench warrant for a failure to appear on a citation for under the influence. (non- traffic)
It might. The bigger question, however, is would they extradite you back to CA for a misdemeanor? It's possible, but not likely because of the cost. Best thing to to do is to contact an attorney back in CA and try and get it resolved.See question
