We often get calls from clients who were involved in a car accident and were driving with a suspended license. Many want to know whether you can still sue or pursue a claim for damages even if you did not have a valid or suspended drivers license. Under California law you WILL be able to recover. However, be aware that insurance companies will try and use that fact as leverage to limit the award or recovery. Although, this will have little to no significance on your case. The fact that you were driving without a license is not cause to deny a claim for injuries. If you were involved in a car accident and have a suspended license know your rights.
