Q: Can I sue the state for renewing the license of an older person who hit me - they shouldn't have been driving.

Chase T Wilson answered on Oct 18, 2018

You can sue them, but the chances of that suit being successful are quite low given the immunity granted to government entities in Indiana. You'll also have the Indiana Tort Claims Notice to deal with. The best route is to pursue an insurance claim and possible a lawsuit against the at-fault driver.

The statute of limitations in Indiana for minors is 2 years after they turn 18, so you have plenty of time to file a claim. That being said, contact a local personal injury attorney immediately as the sooner you contact them the better they'll be able to help.
