Expired Licenses and Pursuing a Claim

By San Diego Attorney on September 24, 2020

Renewing a license is a common, if annoying, affair that California drivers have to deal with every few years. Sometimes it is as simple as submitting an application online and paying a fee, while other times you have to make an appointment with the DMV, submit new paperwork, and take a test. Whatever the case, getting into an accident when your license is expired can be a stressful and confusing situation. You may assume you are unable to file a claim or that you could face criminal charges by the police. However, you may still have options if you were in an accident when your license was expired.

By San Diego Attorney on December 12, 2019
