Q: Am I comparatively negligent for having an expired driver’s license? Even if I’m in an accident where the other driver is at fault? Will I be found comparatively negligent for having an expired license? Someone hit my truck but they were hauled away in an ambulance.
A: To my knowledge, having no license or a suspended license or other licensing issues, has nothing to do with liability in an accident case. It can be raised at trial by the opposing counsel in cross examination of you, or admission of your certified driving record at trial
