Was hit by an unlicensed, also illegal immigrant driver another man's work van. The owner was cited for driving w/o license, and negligence causing a wreck. He plead guilty. My attorney filed suit for the usual plus punitive damages. What's my potential outcome from this?
That is incorrect. It is a rebuttable presumption that bc you did not have your license, you are at fault. However, it can be rebutted by the fact that the car pulled in front of you, thus causing the accident. You are not at fault as you have rebutted the presumption.
Bc there was an accident, you’re going to have to go to court. If you had insurance at the time and you’ve corrected the registration, it probably all gets dismissed but you should hire a lawyer to ensure that’s how it goes.

It means if you are reported to the DOT as having cancelled or not having insurance coverage, the DOT will send you a notice requesting proof of insurance on the vehicle. If proof is not provided, theDOT will cancel your cars registration.
If the holder is part of a civil proceeding (like an insurance company secured a judgment against you for damage caused while driving without insurance), a bankruptcy filing will likely restore your driving privileges. You are welcome to email me if you have more specific questions.
Another teen rear ended this 16 year old while she was driving illegal and he has had to pay for everything because he rear ended her.

The intermediate license is a minor traffic offense. The person who rear ended the other person is at fault, license or no license, dui or no dui, because that is the direct and proximate cause of the accident.
The laws of the state where the crash occurred will control, and in most circumstances a court action would be initiated in that jurisdiction. An injury claim should first be filed with the at-fault party or parties insurance carriers. Multi-car crashes can be complicated. Do not speak with any...Read more »

I’m out the $7,500 for down payment on new car also car payments went up added two more years on a loan and insurance went up none of this would have happened before the accident wondering if I’m entitled to get anything back
No. The $7500 downpaymrnt and the higher monthly payments were voluntary on your part. You could have purchased a cheaper car and reduced these amounts. These issues are not a direct and proximate result of the accident.
