A 8wheeler semi truck rear ended my car and my wife was a passanger, the truck is at 100% fault, me and my wife suffer injuries and we are going to therapy, can i sue for pain and injuries even if my license was suspended?, the suspension was because of a missing court date on a inapropiate turn. The day right after the accident they activated my license and gave me a new court date for the ticket meaning i fixed the suspension withing 24hr of the suspension.
The fact that your license was suspended will not prevent a claim for injuries You should obtain the Police Report and contact an AVVO attorney to evaluate
Yes, you can still sue. Contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
One has nothing to do with the other. Yes, you can still file claims for medical benefits and injuries.
Call a personal injury lawyer ASAP to investigate the case and file all applicable claims on your behalf.
The issue of negligence in a motor vehicle accident can take on many forms. The fact you were rear ended is a major strike against the other vehicle. There is a presumption the other driver was negligent and the only way to oppose it is for the other driver to have a non negligent explanation for the accident. For example- if that driver claims you suddenly stopped. More often than not that issue can be resolved in your favor regardless of the status of your license. As for your injuries - this should be evaluated by a personal injury attorney. The consultation is usually free so contact someone as soon as possible.
Yes, if you have sustained a "serious injury" as that term is defined by law, you can make a liability claim. Your suspension has nothing to do with this accident, your failure to show up in court on a previous occasion did not cause this accident. However, it could hurt in the longer run; if there is dispute as to the extent of your injuries, your disrespect for the law could be used to impair your credibility.
There is nothing stopping you from suing for your injuries. You may get more than a little embarrassed. And of course the fact that you were driving without a license will come out
Yes. You can sue for pain and suffering. (If your injuries are serious) The fact that your license was suspended is irrelevant.
