Has the other side sued you and gotten a judgment?
Did you have insurance at the time of the accident?
How long ago was this?
That is the problem. The Florida DMV will automatically suspend your license if you are involved in an accident in FL without insurance. The other party has nothing to do with it. If you do not have insurance to comply with the Financial Responsibility Law, your driver license and/or license plates will be suspended for up to three years. You will have to pay a $15 reinstatement fee and show the department certified proof of full liability insurance on Form SR-22 for three years from the original suspension date to get your driving privilege back.
In addition, if you are the driver or the owner of a vehicle which is in a crash that is your fault, this department can require you to pay for the damages before your driving privilege is reinstated.
Once you receive notice of the DMV suspension, there should be some instructions as to how to appeal the suspension. You would have the right to apply for an administrative hearing review to see if they would agree to give you a "hardship license".
