You will need to contact an attorney in St. Lucia to represent you and find out what you can recover. There are time deadlines so you should contact counsel as soon as possible. Your friend could also try to get reimbursement from her health insurance.See question

If you have a bench warrant, your best option is to hire an attorney to file a motion to recall the warrant. If the motion is granted, the warrant will be recalled and the case will be set for trial. Otherwise, you could be arrested on the warrant at any time.
The only other way would be to turn yourself in and you would need to have someone ready to post bail.See question

No, when you settled your case, the insurance company had you sign a Release. This document releases the other driver and everyone else from any liability for the accident.See question
I was given the first speeding ticket of my life two months ago and was given a PBJ. However I received another speeding ticket last night. Does this violate the PBJ and will my points come back from the first one?
It depends. When you received the first probation, the judge could have stated that you are on probation for a specific period of time and ordered you to avoid any further convictions of moving violations during that time. If the judge did this and you received a speeding ticket while on probation, a conviction will violate your probation and result in a VOP hearing.
On the other hand, most of the time when the judge gives you probation before judgment for a speeding ticket, they do not impose any period of probation (or maybe one day) and do not set any conditions. If that was the case for you, you are not in danger of losing the PBJ.
Of course, your chances of getting a second PBJ for the new speeding ticket are not great, but you should still request a trial. The police officer might not appear or you may get a reduction of the points.See question

I bailed my friends boyfriend out on the agreement he would continue to pay the bail. After 4 months he quit paying and now I'm getting papers saying I'm being sued. Can I be arrested for this?
You cannot be arrested, but they can get a judgment and then garnish your wages or bank account. They could also put a lien on your house. This assumes that you signed an agreement to pay the bail bondsman.See question

If you say that you lied, you could be charged with giving a false statement to a police officer. Do not lie. Tell the prosecutor you do not want the case to be prosecuted and you just want her to get help. The decision whether to prosecute the case is up to the State's Attorney.See question

There are too many factors to consider to decide whether jail is likely. It helps that you have no priors. You should discuss the issue of whether jail is likely with your attorney in a confidential setting. Do not post any more details on AVVO since this is a public forum.
If you do not have an attorney, you should ask for a postponement to obtain one. There is no guarantee that the court would postpone the case, but they might.See question
