Can I sue a DUI drivers insurance company that is holding up full payment for damage?
I had a DWI driver at 2:30 am that damaged my property, and vehicle (no injuries to myself or family). Now his insurance company does not want to pay me the estimate amount I received for the property damage work. Adjuster says that the estimates are too high. I want to tell the adjuster that when the Police knock on your door at 3;00 am, and you have older children, that your mind wonders if they are injured or dead. I do not like to sue, but if the company keeps messing around for $1,500.00 I will have to make them spend a lot more in Court costs. Is this something that can be pursued in the Court?
Absolutely No Point. Contact the DA who is prosecuting the DUI driver and turn your damages over to him. The judge...
Texan charged with DWI while in New Mexico for 3 hours.
Was visiting Ruidoso, went to eat a burger and fries and had 3 beers during the timeframe of 10:00 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. -- got pulled over for going 40 in a 30 (did not know the speed limit this being first time there), officer proceeded to do sobriety tests and blood test charged me. Girlfriend was also in the vehicle -- she ate/drank everything that I did. I am 5'9 and weigh about 205 lbs. She is 5'2 and weighs about 130 lbs. The officer did one test on her and proceeded to allow her to drive in order to follow as he took me to the ER for a blood test and then to the police department. I do not believe that I was intoxicated and moreso, don't understand how he could think that I was, but yet not think she was looking at her weight and size. Seems a little bogus to me.
You are going to need a New Mexico attorney to represent you on the DWI. It is a fact of life that DWIs in today's...

I had one failed rolling retest on my interlock, then passed moments later. Do I need to worry?
First and last DUI. I don't drink anymore. Did all my probation stuff, pass every urine screening. Passed the first one that morning, started the car. Deiced the windshield using a spray which got into my mouth. Started to drive and rolling retest beeped a fail on me. But didn't honk horn or flash lights. Then I passed not a minute later. Compliance officer isn't worried but I am.
I don't think so. The retest was negative. I think you're fine.
Who do I talk to so I can get my license back?
I received a DWI in NM in 2009. I never attended the MVD hearing and my license got revoked. In 2013 my DWI case got dismissed after I completed everything in the courts. From Aug. 2012-September 2013 I completed an interlock. MVD was never notified of my interlock and I never obtained an interlock license. I have all paperwork to prove I had the interlock and the dismissed case. I never knew how the process worked and was never informed on how to take care of it through the MVD. Would I be able to get my license back by myself with all my paperwork, or do I hire a lawyer to handle this for me? I'm sure there has to be a way to get it back through all proof I have without doing the interlock again because it just isn't right for them to do this regardless of what I've taken care of.
I am not licensed in New Mexico (I am licensed in California), but why don't you go to the MVD with all your paperwork...

They can drug test you anytime you are on probation; supervised or unsupervised. And for some probation officers, it's...
