Drunk driver crashed into my parked car, not my fault, police report, need advice how to get more money if totalled.
A drunk driver crashed into my unoccupied car parked in front of my house and woke me up at 5:45 AM. Police report was made and it was the drunk drivers fault and he was taken away in cuffs. If my car is totalled my insurance and gap coverage can pay my full loan amount. I got the car 7 months ago and had a 4500 trade in value that was the down payment for my car. How can I get compensated for my old trade in/down payment on the totalled car or get more money for a down payment on a new car? I can't afford money for a down payment on another car. The day the wreck happened I had a dr appointment so I had to borrow a car until my insurance came through with a rental the next day.

What is the lowest possible plea offer for a felony 4 DUI? What is the best possible outcome for a case like this in Arizona?
I had not been driving, I was sitting in my parents car, legally parked, engine off, keys out of the ignition, manual was in neutral and the E-break on. I was using the car as shelter in a bad area I wasn't used to waiting for my ex-husband to pick me up because I had been drinking the night before. Cop seemed biased because I asked for my attorney and he said his ex-wife used the same one in his divorce and arrested me. He called my ex-husband and told him "my attorney's an A-hole" and I did not get to speak to him until after they took my blood and were transporting me to jail.

If I'm not injured, and a drunk driver totaled my car, is it worth me getting an attorney once all the fees are due in the end?
I need to know if it is worth it for me to pay a lawyer to fight for more money in a settlement if I end up paying them 33% plus paper/docs fees? if I didn't sustain any injuries there's not really a case for my attorney to fight for more $ for, right? what I need is someone to fight for my car to get replaced but all I've found are injury lawayers that say they don't have anything to do with "property damage" just injury stuff. any advice?
Fortunately you were not injured in the accident. Most attorneys will not take a property damage only case. Generally,...
