Can I sue a law firm and/or the North Carolina DMV for negligence, financial loss and mental anguish?
I was convicted of DUI august 30th of 2015 and had a BAC of .18 and was required by the judge to get the ignition interlock system put on my car for one year. This was also the requirement for me to get my limited driving privilege. I did as i was asked and met all the requires. I had the interlock in my car until 12/06/16 as the DMV requested. On February 26 or 27 of 2017 I received a phone call from the DMV (Tina Raynor) That there was a mistake made and the privilege i was given did not require me to have interlock on my car and that I still owed the DMV time. I stated I have an issued license stating I could have the devices removed on 12/06/2016. She said this was an error by the DMV and based on the privilege signed in court I did not have to have the ignition interlock for the time of my privilege. I have now had to put the interlock back on my car for another 7 months even though I already did the one year I was required due to a clerical error by my lawyer and the DMV.
