Mr. Crosner is licensed to practice law in California and has been practicing law in California since 1978. The response herein is general legal and business analysis.. It is not intended nor construed to be "legal advice" but rather it is analysis, and different lawyers may analyze this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. Oftentimes the question does not include significant and important facts and timelines that, if known, could significantly change the reply and make it unsuitable.

In most states, the drivers license of an uninsured motorist can be suspended until proof of payment of the claim. There are other ramnification of the car accident also such as suspension of the vehicles license plates. Call for a legal consult of an attorney in your area.
