    This a terrible situation and I become very concerned when a young child suffers a closed-head injury. I hope you will be diligent in following up on her medical treatment until she is rid of any symptoms, such as headaches, etc. in response to your question, I don't know what you mean by "full" coverage. If you had only the minimum 25k required in Ga. your daughter is entitled to make claim against you under your policy. Any settlement she obtains over 15k will have to be approved by the...

    Your question "how are these cases handled" is to general for me to respond. There is a lot of "handling" that goes into a case. If you meant atty. fees, these are usually on a contingent basis, anywhere from 25-40%. Your second question how to know if your lawyer is reputable is also a hard one to answer. Theoretically, every lawyer that has Received a hard-earned license to practice law in Ga. is reputable. You can also check the State Bar of Georgia to see if there have been any complaints...

    My law partner did just that. The result was not good. The jury felt the "full value" of the life of the deceased plaintiff junkie was nil and that he had assumed the risk of dying by voluntarily injecting himself with an unknown substance, which he thought would be a certain quality if heroin but was much stronger. We lost the case but even if we had won, the judgment would have been uncollectible.

    I suggest hiring a WC attorney that also has civil injury/product liability experience. I'm not sure from your statement what money you are being asked to repay or why. WC should have paid all your med. bills and 2/3 of your wages while you were out of work. To answer your question, under Ga. law you cannot sue your employer for a work related injury, workers comp. is your exclusive remedy. If a third party or some machinery was involved in causing your injury you may be able to sue that party...

    I agree with atty. Ashman. Unless you were mentally incompetent at time, the statute of limitations expired when you were 20. Also, SS disability only pays if you are 100% disabled from any type of work and it does not sound like you are.

    First, be aware that colosus is a complicated program with many algorythyms. Avvo is not a place that can give you the legal education you would need to understand and respond to its nuances. When u make an uninsured motorist claim your insurance company basically stands in for the insurance company the other driver should have had. Even though it is "your" insurance co. you are now proceeding in an adversarial manner against them and their job is to pay you as little as possible. If your...

    First, your determination that the store was "100%" at fault is probably incorrect as there are many legal requirements to be satisfied in order to pursue a "slip and fall" case in Georgia, besides the fact that you may have done nothing wrong. The length of time the puddle was there, whether the store reasonably should have known about it, whether the store had an adequate fall prevention protocol and was it followed, should/could you have seen the puddle and avoided it, and other legal...

    A boat has a titled registered owner similar to an automobile. The name on the title is the owner. It title is in his name then you either gave him a gift when you bought it for him OR you loaned him the money to buy it. If it was a loan, you can sue for the boat or the money, depending upon your loan agreement. If title is in your name make sure the police are aware of that. Since the police came and took the boat away from you it seems that your ex must have reported it stolen, in which case...

    Without a written agreement, you are a tenant- at-will. However, you still must be legally served with 30 or 60 days notice from the landlord telling you to quit the premises. This can be challenged in court but you will need grounds to do so. When you receive the notice you should contact an experienced landlord-tenant attorney at once.
