My license may be getting suspended due to lapse in insurance on date of accident.

Asked almost 2 years ago - Los Angeles, CA

My parents were paying my car insurance up until a few weeks before my accident. A month ago a driver ran a red light and hit my car. I immediately went home and purchased liability insurance. The company gave me a "complimentary" day of coverage, but my actual policy took affect the day after the accident occurred. I hired an attorney because I was hurt during the wreck, and I believe she reported the accident to the DMV.

I received a letter from the DMV stating that they received information about the accident and needed proof of insurance from me. I know that I did not have insurance during the time of the accident, and am very worried about a license suspension and if there are any other options to try to help me get a lower suspension time or no suspension at all.
