  • I hit a dog in the road, and have no heath insurance. What do I do?

    I was in a charity ride involving 85+ motorcycles, a dog ran infront of me and caused me to crash (I did hit the dog, and totaled out my motorcycle) the owners did claim the dog. Unfortantly I have no health insurance and no place will do MRI on m...

    Robert’s Answer

    Contact an attorney in Savannah, if you have not done so. We can help refer you to someone competent if you wish. If you have a case against the owner of the dog [leash law violation, etc] and they have insurance you might be able to obtain some justice. The attorney may know doctors who will treat you on a lien basis [paid from proceeds of suit or claim] and help you get some care.

  • Is the at fault party still responsible for paying for your injuries if you attorney quits without giving u a settlement amount?

    I was involved in a accident in 08 and my attorney never gave me any info about my case and never saw him but 1 time. When I ask him to give me a copy of what the settlement offer was from the insurance company, he filed a motion to withdraw the d...

    Robert’s Answer

    Most importantly, have your case reviewed by another attorney to see how much merit there is to your case and see if you can hire someone to help you.

    If a suit is filed, the other attorney would have to get permission from the Judge to withdraw. This requires notice to you and an order from the Judge.

    You may have recourse beyond the suit but that is another matter and I don't want to prejudge the attorney's conduct.

    Where did this occur? Suit will depend on where you have to go to do it. Assume it is not Georgia or is it?

  • I was in an accident and it was her fault. I had no insurance...what will happen to me?

    Robert’s Answer

    If the ticket is for no insurance, you need to open you wallet and prepare to pay a fine. It is not a felony. I would get some insurance so you can tell the Judge when you go to court that you have insurance now. The court can act against your driving privilege if you don't have insurance.

    Robert’s Answer

    You need to at least call someone who is an attorney in this area of law. You could probably have a consult for a few hundred dollars and it would be worth your while to do so.

  • Auto personal injury lawsuit

    Is there a judgment amount due date, at time of judgment or some time later if the plaintiff wins the auto personal injury case in the GA magistrate court? Under what circumstance must the lost party add the interest besides of the full payment of...

    Robert’s Answer

    Judgments are final 30 days after entry, that if filing of the order with the Clerk. If it is more than 30 days and there has been no appeal to a higher court and no motion for new trial filed, the judgment creditor can begin to collect. The defendant has no duty to do anything but can voluntarily pay if they wish. Any act to collect must be taken by the person who obtained the verdict and judgment.

  • How does the judge award the general damages of an auto personal injury in Georgia?

    Can the GA Magistrate Court judge award in excess of the direct loss such as pain and suffering? Should the automobile accident victim specify the pain and suffering or just demand more than the direct loss and the judge will automatically conside...

    Robert’s Answer

    Magistrate Court is capped at $15,000 for any case. An injury case is presented to the Judge and the Judge has discretion on who wins: how much they get and bases it on the testimony presented.

    The is no magic formula.
