Do I need to get an attory after being hit head on by a drunk driver? My 4 year old son was in teh car with me.
We have no serious injuries but the car is pretty bad, im a single mom and my insurance wont get me a rental car cause i dont have that on my plan .

Im being told i personally have to go after her insurance which i thought that is what my insurance is for. also i dont have good enough credit to get a new vehicle if mine is totaled ... so im to drive around in a POS cause she hit me. That doesnt seem right.
If you were hit by a drunk driver, you can get pain and suffering money for both yourself and your baby. Click on...
What do I need to ask the clerk to get proof that i completed all of my dui sentence? l
Last time I went they just gave me a copy of my file and the sentencing docs but nothing to show it was completed
That's probably the best you can do.
When should I disclose my DUI conviction to the CA Board of Accountancy?
Was convicted of a misdemeanor DUI in Sept 2015. Received CPA license renewal form recently and it says that I have to disclose the conviction to CA Board of Accountancy. I'm not currently a practicing CPA, my license status is 'inactive'. So I don't need the license for practice rights. If I don't renew my license it would become 'delinquent' and can remain so for 5 years. I can renew my license anytime within those 5 years. I have 2 options: 1) don't renew license and don't disclose conviction or 2) renew license and disclose conviction. If I go with 1) I can disclose my conviction after the conviction has been expunged and still be able to renew my license as long as its within the 5 year time frame. I heard it may be better to disclose the conviction after it's been expunged. Would the Board view this course of action as potentially dishonest because it may look like I'm trying to manipulate the system?
In my experience, the Board would be hard pressed to consider not renewing a license to be "dishonest." However, in...
How soon after DUI DMV hearing does license suspension become effective?
I have a DMV DUI hearing next week. Based on the documentation and the facts, I am pretty sure I am going to lose. I planned to drive (I have a temporary license pending the DMV hearing outcome) to and from the hearing. Will the hearing officer make the decision immediately and preclude me from driving home after the hearing? Or will the suspension go into effect at a particular date and time as determined by the hearing officer? Thank you.
Within about 30 days. Probably sooner.
Can I fight a DUI charge
I was waiting for a tow truck standing outside of my car. An officer came by and asked what was going on. I told him I was waiting for a tow because my tire popped. At the time he asked if I had been drinking I told him I did have a few drinks. He did not test me or my girlfriend at that time. He then left and I sat in the car to make a call and he came back by and tested me for alcohol at that time. I was not even driving. I got a .13 he never tested my girlfriend. What are my chances on fighting this DUI or even reducing it as a Wet Reckless? My girlfriend was driving me home but he only tested me.
To answer the quest written in the heading, you can always fight a DUI charge. Will you be successful in your fight? It'...
How can I verify my driver license isn't suspended?
I have a copy of the record from CA, tried to get a CT license and was told it was suspended in CA. Record shows suspended 5/2/14 and Action terminated 11/14/14. Not sure if the suspension was lifted
Do you know what event occurred on 5/2/14? If you have a suspension you normally have to do something to get your...
