My vehicle was legally parked, drunk driver hit my car and left the scene. I still owe on my vehicle I live in NY can I sue?
Drunk driver smashed into my legally parked car on the street. Left the scene of the accident, abandoned his vehicle and ran. Police eventually caught him. I have two car payments left on my vehicle, no way to get to work, having to miss work and extremely stressed out. I didn't plan on buying an new vehicle anytime soon. Waiting to hear back from my insurance. It's been two days. Can I sue?
You can sue the other driver for the repair costs. If the car is totalled you can sue for the fair market value.
Will paying my suspensions help me in my up and coming auo 2nd case in NY
Hi...I was convicted of a dwi 16 months ago ( I have a refusal and at the time was ineligable for a conditional because i just started a new job) anyhow I complied and completed all "crimminal" matters regarding the dwi i.e communuty service, fines, drug assessment etc.. However I could not afford to pay the dmv the $1150 they requested. Anyhow I was caught driving home from work due to following to closely and a bad tire...and was ultimately charged with auo 2nd...as mentioned i have pending fees with the dmv if i paid my refusal fee of $500 before my next appearance would that help me possibly avoid jail time or would it be helpful at all...i dont know if this helps but i work 30 min from my residence i haven't drove but i picked up extra hours to get my license back i had to get to work and the friend was unable to take me but loaned his car unaware of my situation

Am I going to jail for my auo 2nd in ny?
I was convicted of a dwi 16 months ago ( I have a refusal and at the time was ineligable for a conditional because i just started a new job) anyhow I complied and completed all "crimminal" matters regarding the dwi i.e communuty service, fines, drug assessment etc..

Can you still become a nys notary if you have had your license suspended in the past?
Five years ago I lived out of state and I got my license suspended a couple times from not showing uo to court because I didn''t get the mail in time among other things.
Yes, you can still be a notary. What they mean when they ask if you've ever had a license suspended on the application...
Will I get charged with a DUI for blowing over the legal limit in a portable breath test?
I was pulled over after having a couple drinks. The officer did an eye test which I failed. He then had me get out of the car and walk back and forth and count paces, and then hold one leg up. As far as I know I did fine with those. He then had me blow into a PBT which came back just over the legal limit. He said that he was going to arrest me for DUI, but then came back and had me break off the straw from the breath test (presumably as a reminder), handed me back my license and told me to go home and that I was done driving for the night. I was not arrested given a ticket, citation or court date. Could I still receive a letter in the mail being charged for DUI? From what I've read the PBT itself is not admissible for conviction and I was not taken in for any further chemical testing.
It sounds like you were given standardized field sobriety tests. If you had blown over .08% BAC in the portable breath...
Are my chances of beating a dui better the older the case is??
my case is 7.5 yrs old now. after my dui i lost my car, job, and had to relocate out of that state. it's just not been easy to get back. im ready to take care of it, but wonder if the time passed can play in my favor. such things as officer not being employed any longer. i was also approached more than 3 hrs after driving last, and even longer since last drink. I broke down and was resolved to stay the night in my car. It was shortly after 10pm, and I was tested approximately 1:30-2am. It was definitely after 3 hrs though. I posted earlier and mistakenly said 2 hrs......but I checked the phone i used 8 yrs ago, yes i saved it. I called 911 because i eventually became too cold, and basically nervous. I was waiting on the tow truck.
It is possible for the DA's office to have a problem getting witnesses, depending on the arresting officer's current...
