Daughter Crashed Car into House, my name is on registration, but she let insurance lapse. Car is still being Financed.
I co-signed for a auto loan for my 20 year old daughter, and I am also on the registration. My daughter purchased her own insurance in her own name. She was involved in a crash by hitting a garage, and the car that was inside. She was cited for a DUI, and no proof of insurance. When I found out about the accident and asked her if she called her insurance company, she told me she had let her insurance lapse because she could not pay for it. Now she is in a world of trouble. Question: Since my name is on the registration, but I was not involved with insuring the car, can I be held liable for her actions? She does live with us.
Yes, you could be in trouble if there is a suit against the owner of the vehicle - you. Consult in person with a...
Will I get drug tested on my last court date for dui of drug?
I was arrested and charged with 4 counts of dui, involving alcohol and cannabis. I gave a urine test when I was arrested which came back positive. Since then I have had a motion to suppress evidence which was granted because the cop had no probable cause to arrest me. the state didn't file appeal and this will be my last court date to have the case dismissed. I haven't had to take a drug test yet, but will I on my last court date coming up? What would happen if I tested positive for cannabis?
You apparently have a lawyer. The best person to ask this and all other questions is your lawyer. We have no way of...

I was in an accident a few years ago to which I walked out of to the nearest gas station and called the police. They came tried to give me breathalyzer I was from out of state so I denyed to blow but had to go in ambulance because I had fractured my neck. Cops still gave me ticket so I went to lawyer gave to him he told me a couple weeks later that I'd lose my license for a year and then get it back. Turns out guy never went to my court day 2 years ago. Now I have warrant in that city that I do not live in anymore. I've Got everything documented in email with this guy and he is always dodgy.

It sounds like you need a new lawyer. While you may have legitimate complaints about the "dodgy" lawyer, he won't be...
Looking for case law on MISDEMEANOR discovery of dash cam & police reports. Charges: accident, hit/run, & DUI. Naperville Ill.
My son refused to blow. The discovery dash cam video shows ONLY HIS FST. He did fairly poor on the FST. A long explanation, but a full dash cam would likely aid the hit/run defense as son was on the scene with his car when the police arrived. The other driver did not speak English, 3 squads, 4 witnesses, 4 officers & lots of confusion that would likely be cleared up by a full video. As of today, we don't know if the entire videos were not given at discovery or if they don't exist resulting from the officers only activating for FST. I already have rule 411, Kladis, law on State Police cams, Webster, Strobel, & Schmidt. Looking for: case law dealing with officers obligation to turn video on (i.e. "cherry picking the use of video") and case law supporting motion for extra discovery. Thanks
Don't try to act as your own attorney! Contact an experienced DUI attorney in Ill to represent you ASAP.
First time DUI in Dupage County. Received BAIID and 1 yr suspension for refusing to blow. Early reinstatement hearing possible?
Only 1 speeding ticket on record 3 years ago. Completed all court requirements. Is it possible to have hearing with SOS for removal of BAIID before the 1 year summary suspension is up in Illinois? What are chances of winning hearing?
The only way to end a suspension early is to get it rescinded in court - apparently your lawyer did not do that.
I received my third dui fourteen years after my second one, I put my car in a snowbank nobody involved and I was not hurt,
I am a nurse will it effect my job and will I ever see a driver's license?
Consult an Illinois attorney who is experienced in DWI and professional licensing matters. Having said that, 3...
