My daughter had an accident and was required to make a payment plan and get sr22 insurance. While paying the sr22 on time, the company failed to report her good standing on time which caused her to have an extra suspension on her driving record. She was given a career opportunity with a government agency, which was later retracted after seeing she had that suspension on her driving record which would not be there if the insurance company simply reported her good standing on time. Talking with the corporate office of the I surface agency their response was "I see the suspension there, but it's notated like its never there". But it is there and she lost her career because of it. She previously tried to get the situation with the suspension rectify but she wasn't taken seriously. Now that she lost her job, the corporate office is saying they will send a letter to her job saying that they ARE at fault for that suspension and my daughter was actually in good standing but I don't think that will get her job back. I'd like to know if we have a lawsuit.
Your daughter should probably contact an attorneys who concentrates in employment law.
Unfortunately, she cannot sue the insurance company for what you think she should be able to. Losing her job and their administrative mistake is not something that is contemplated in the law.
You can certainly have her talk to a lawyer with expertise in insurance law, but this is not something that will be provable.

This does not sound like a particularly viable claim. This is not like she lost a job for which she was already receiving a paycheck. She apparently was never extended a job offer, but rather was screened out during the screening process because of the erroneous suspension. Much of this claim would be speculation and if attempted to be proved, would probably need expert resources like an economist and vocational expert. These would cost thousands of dollars to recruit and have testify. Your daughter has learned a hard lesson here. People must maintain adequate automobile liability insurance on their vehicle at all times or else risk consequences such as this which are too costly to try to fight.
