Hit by a drunk driver, car totaled, now what?
Two days ago, I was at a red light and was hit by a drunk driver, going at least 50 MPH. I was lucky I survived, and even luckier that I walked away. Right after the crash, he jumped up and ran on foot, away from the scene. They caught him, and is charging him, but I am afraid about the future. I have never dealt with this before, and while I have a rental car, I am afraid that since my car was totaled, that I will not get enough money to buy a new or even a used car. I am very sore, and have mid-level injuries, but nothing broken, thankfully. People have told me to get a lawyer, but I am scared at the thought, and worried that it may be either too late or too early. What should I do?
The remedy for the car is fair market value, not more money to pay off your loan. However, as you were injured, your...

I accepted a plea for the DUI FOP/FOE program in April. I have the IID now and have a big concern.
I have not had one drop of alcohol since the date of my initial arrest. I took all of my classes prior to going to court. I have paid all fines etc. Yesterday morning I went out to the car to go to work and I blew into the IID and it failed. I thought it was a mistake and tried twice more before it locked me out. My father took me to work. I realized that I had gargled and rinsed with listerine. This morning I took the care to the place that installed the unit and had the unit serviced as the unit was blinking. The guy conformed listerine can cause a false positive. I have no idea what possible consequences I face and I'm scared as there is no way to prove my innocence. Can you please help me understand what may happen?
