Q: P R. While waiting to make a left turn got hit by drunk driver, car is total loss, my NY license was expire. Help
Insurance is going to pay $20000 the balance I still owe but what about all the money I invested. Someone told me that besides the insurance I’m supposed to get $5000 because of the inspection sticker. Please I don’t know the law in PR. Do I have a case even though my license was expired. The driver that hit me had an alcohol level of 17.5 and according to police his speed was almost 50 miles. If you have an attorney you can recommend I’ll appreciate. My daughter has Down syndrome and and was hurt and my left side arm, knee and foot and face are numb and other symptoms. Thanks for your time.

A: Are you saying the accident happened in Puerto Rico? If so, you must consult an attorney who is in P.R. or who is licensed to practice law in P.R. Since you are writing from Fla., probably only Fla. attorneys will see your post. There are probably some attorneys in Fla. who are licensed in Puerto Rico; you can contact the Florida Bar to see if there are any.
