A: If neither you nor the car was insured, you can recover for everything except your pain and suffering. You can get property damage, past and future wage loss and medical expenses.

A: you can't collect pain and suffering but can for everything else.

you should lose your license for a year and you should have been cited for driving without a license as a misdemeanor and have a court date.

A: I agree with Mr. Light however it is good to see if there is some way around that law--for instance here in Pennsylvania if the car was no longer registered to you you may be able to still have a claim for the injuries. It's complicated here and very complicated there, so what you need to do is contact a member of the Consumer Attorneys of California, who specialize in injury cases and give free consultations.
