The other side of that argument is: Why should your insurance pay out of pocket for the negligence of someone else? Your insurance policy would almost certainly have a provision that requires you to cooperate and help them subrogate, so a lien probably isn't necessary.
Your bail is set based on the charges that the officers anticipated would be brought. The court will have a "bail schedule" to determine what amount that will be per particular charge. $35,000 seems pretty high for a misdemeanor, albeit a third DUI. Your attorney, in addition to preparing your defense, could have also filed a motion to reduce the bail to an appropriate level if you remained in custody. Of course, if the DA filed additional charges, the bail amount could be raised, but I don't...
PC29800 imposes a ban on gun ownership for convicted felons. However, you were convicted of a "wobbler" that was later reduced to a misdemeanor. PC273a is not a prohibited misdemeanor under P29805. You may have a chance at firearm ownership, but I would talk to an attorney about your specific case. Federal laws may apply as well. Do not purchase without talking to a lawyer.
It can be a number of things. Could be that they spelled your name wrong or dispatch wasn't paying attention to the computer. It could be they don't bother with low level warrants. I would not take this as a sign that your case went away. Warrants have a way of coming back to haunt you. I would clear it up soon.
You've probably done all you can in the situation. The law requires that you exchange information with the other vehicle's driver, but if they don't stop and make it possible, there's not much more you can do. You've made all the good faith efforts to protect yourself if something does get reported later, but I'm not seeing that there's much more to do until/if you are contacted.
Out of state law firms handling mass torts typically will have associated firms that they work with in California. If you call one of the out of state firms, I'd suspect they could refer you to a firm already familiar with the action.
It''s definitely not too late. You have two years for the personal injury aspects of the accident and three years for the property damage portion. I would contact an attorney quickly to get on top of the insurance company. Most attorneys will take your case on a contingency basis, meaning they don't get paid unless you do.
Short Answer - definitely talk to an attorney. If the assault (and battery) occurred in Mexican waters, you might even try to get in touch with a local (Mexican) attorney. If it was in International Waters, you should contact an admiralty attorney. Be sure to keep all the documentation you have with the cruise line to see if you have a cause of action against them as well. If the guy that injured your fiancee had been causing problems and had been a known nuisance, there may be recourse if the...
They can proceed, but their case becomes difficult. Girlfriend doesn't have to testify if she doesn't want to. But, there are different issues to consider. Were there injuries that verify girlfriend's original story? Other circumstantial evidence? Without reading the report, there's not enough information to know what prosecution is relying upon for their case. You're not out of the woods yet, get a lawyer.
