Should I pursue a lawsuit against a 22 year old female that hit my car while drunk driving and uninsured?
9/26/15 - 22 yr old female hits my car while parked in my drive way. She fled the scene and hit 5 other cars close by. Got the police report on 9/28/2015 and the notes showed she was driving intoxicated and hit 5 cars and 1 of those cars hit another. So in total 7 cars were damaged. I missed two days of work, my husband missed 5 days due to this accident. I was charged late fees for child care as we didn't have money to pay for it because my husband missed work. She was uninsured so her company could not provide a rental car & I spent a total of 3 weeks with no car. Now my 2015 Nissan Altima is repaired, but it no longer has the value as it should have at this point. It's also a lease, so if I get it evaluated by the dealer & something is wrong, it's going to come out of my pocket.
If you believe she has some money or assets you could get, then it may be worth it, but suing poor people is generally...

I refused the breath test but was found not guilty after almost a yr going to court. Do i still pay a 500.00 reinstatement fee??
On Feb 28th 2012 i was backing out of a drive way and tapped a car behind me. A man came out of no where and jumped on the hood of my car (In his under ware) so i hit the car again by mistake cause he scared me. The police showed up, did not give me a sobrity test, just cuffed me and threw me in the police car and took me to jail. I refused the breath test because i had, had 1 and a half rum and cokes and didn't know how much that would show on the test.
In most jurisdictions, the administrative consequences on your driver's license are independent of the results in the...
What you think of my case?
No breath test no one else injured no field sobriety tests, police think i was drunk but I wasn't at all I was in shock from the accident.
This is a very detailed, and therefore very recognizable, description of an event. I believe you should refrain from...
Is the interlock really required in my situation?
I have multiple DUI's in Massachusetts, the last one occurring about 20 years ago. In 2007 I was living in New York. I paid Massachusetts the reinstatement fee(s) and then got a NY license. I then moved to New Jersey and transferred my license there. I have moved back to Mass. and the RMV tells me I have to have an interlock installed in order to get a Mass. License. When I paid the fee(s) in Mass. there was no mention of not being able to drive here, and I did not receive any type of affidavit at that time. I don't own a car and would have to get someone to let me put one of these in their's in order to get a license.
Yes, with two priors, regardless of when they happened, the RMV is now catching up and requiring the IID for two years....
DUI question in Massachusetts
If one was accused of A DUI and later dismissed by a judge then two years later the same person once again receives a DUI does the judge or court take in account the dismissed DUI when addressing the current DUI ?
Assuming that you mean that the previous DUI was straight out dismissed, and not dismissed after you completed...
If I move to another state will the dui show on my driving record and insurance, therefore preventing me from driving for work?
So I was found guilty of oui in massachusetts. The issue is my career requires me to drive a company vehicle. No one in Mass. will hire me with this on my record until it clears after 3 years. My question is I hear Mass. does not share this info with other states? So if I move to another state will the dui show on my driving record and insurance, therefore preventing me from driving a company vehicle in another state?
I think you are misinformed. You state is one of a few that does not participate in the Drivers License Compact (DLC)...
