How do I make payment arrangements to avoid License Suspension?

Humble, TX |

I was driving a relative's vehicle and not knowing that it had no insurance, I got into a minor accident. The vehicle that i hit was insured but mine wasn't so I got a letter sent explaining that my license will be suspended due to for not paying for the damages the insurance company covered. I called the insurance company and asked for a payment plan so I can avoid my license being suspended. They told me that I have to pay either half of the amount or full payment. Which is way more than I can afford. Who can I speak to or what do I do to get this problem resolved without my license suspended? Any help would be appreciated.

Have a local lawyer try to negotiate a payment plan. You can find one in your city by using Avvo's "find a lawyer" tool. Good luck.

If you had your own personal policy, it may cover you when driving someone else's vehicle. If not, contact a lawyer to help you out locally.

Absolutely correct Randall. This is good advice. You may be covered under your own policy or your parent's policy or another family member. I would be happy to point you in the right direction if you want to send me an email.


Hire an attorney to negotiate a payment plan for you. Payment plans are usually awarded as not many people have lump sums in reserve for these situations.
