Muncie, IN asked in Car Accidents and Insurance Defense for Indiana

Q: I caused an accident without insurance. Is there any way for my license not to be suspended?

I caused an accident with a motorcycle less than a week ago. Couldn't provide proof of insurance at the accident, because it had lapsed over a month prior, but I do have insurance now. I'm aware I will probably face lawsuit and be stacked with lawyer fees, his bike, and medical bills. I can handle the extra bills, as long as my license isn't suspended. I drive for work and without a license, even for 3 months, I will be terminated. Is there any way at all that I will not have my license suspended?

A: You need to conact an attorney who handles license suspension cases. Sometimes posting a bond will do it. The other person is primarily interested in insurance, not you. First up is making sure that the cancellation was correct. Second, be prepared to pay for their car damage.Usually what triggers a suspension is person gets contaccted by the insurance company on the damage claim.
