    Every DUI starts with a traffic stop. I bet that the officer can articulate a reason for stopping you. Once stopped, the issue is whether you were under the influence. Your next issue is whether you knowingly refused the test at the station. I suggest that you get a local lawyer, since you appear to have numerous issues and arguments in your favor.

    Dear Arlington - While you are correct to ask about the value of your case - you are three steps ahead of where you should be!! First - do not talk about your injuries, lost wages, or medical bills with the adjuster for the person who hit you - they are a professional tasked with getting you to settle for cheap. Second, you need to complete treatment and resolve any injuries you received before trying to settle. Third - remember, again, that the insurance adjuster is a professional, who is...

    Dear Roanoke - Get a lawyer for the hearing!! They will ask questions of you IN ORDER TO GET THE DOG DECLARED DANGEROUS. Then your insurance (homeowners or renters) premiums will go up and depending on the breed of the dog, you might have to get rod of him to keep your insurance or pay a special fee. Subpoena the trainer for the hearing, or else their evidence will be excluded. Good luck!

    The short answer is yes. You might be able to negotiate paying them a lesser a mount, but you will likely need to show that your circumstances have changed, in order to get them to agree. Good luck.

    Dear Petersburg- please know that anything Progressive does is mostly for its benefit and anything that you get is an afterthought. The adjuster is a professional whose job is getting you to take the least amount possible. They will act like your friend, then scold you , then guilt you , etc. please consider a local lawyer to assist you in your claim. This will even your chances. Good luck.

    Dear Newport News- generally, the states share data and respect the actions of sister states and the suspensions issued by them. Virginia DMV will need proof that you have complied with all of Hawaii's requirements for reinstatement. This is to keep folks from skipping from state to state. Please get a written listing of what Hawaii DMV says you have to do, then get those things done..otherwise you risk being barred from getting a license elsewhere. Good luck.

    Dear Fairfax - you ran into the ire of the officer and he did what he thought proper - that is, stop asking questions and proceed with an arrest. The "nub" is whether he had probable cause as of that moment to justify the arrest. You do not say if you refused or took a breath test. Know that you had every right to ask for a lawyer when you did. A lawyer will be your best bet. Good luck.

    Mr. Tackett is correct - there is no "average" since people are different and have different lifestyles, ages, work histories, etc. I do caution you to NOT DO THIS ALONE!! The insurance professionals are aid to minimize your recovery and their company's payout!! You need a professional on your side. Good luck.

    Dear Martinsville - these cases are difficult to win, because you need to prove that you did not see - nor SHOULD you have seen - the ice cubes on the sidewalk. You also have to show that Taco Bell knew - or SHOULD have known - of the ice cubes being there. TB will likely say that it has a routing that it follows to inspect the grounds around the restaurant. You can use AVVO's find a lawyer near you to discuss the case with. Good luck.
