    As of September 28, 2009 there is a HUGE change in the law as it pertains to car accident cases and any injury case stemming from the commission of a crime. In Beneke v. Parker et al. S08G2078. S08G2082. (2009) the Supreme Court ruled that the two years statute of limitations for personal injury claims is tolled (extended) for the the same amount of time that passes between the commission of the traffic crime and the resolution of the traffic ticket. That means if a person gets ticketed for...

    There are multiple options for recovery including other vehicles owned by the parents of the driver, umbrella coverages, private out of pocket pay and your own underinsured motorist coverage. Additionally, in Georgia if the settlement for your son exceeds $15,000 it will have to be approved by the probate court of the county you reside. This can include an appointed conservator or guardian ad litem. All settlements on behalf of a minor require court approval even if the matter was settled...

    There are various avenues for which you can recover a possible settlement. There may be additional liability policies for the at fault car and driver as well as uninsured motorist coverage. My professional recommendation is to consult with an experienced attorney.

    Generally- it is permissible to use the same lawyer. However, if the at fault driver has a CSL policy then that lawyer has a conflict of interest. Other situations could present a conflict as well. I would suggest asking that lawyer if he/she feels that a conflict exists and I would also consult with another lawyer for a second opinion.

    I am very sorry to hear of your loss. My professional recommendation is that you speak with an attorney. There are different causes of action in GA when there is a wrongful death claim. There can be the wrongful death claim and the pain and suffering claim. In GA, surviving family members bring one claim and the Estate is the proper party to bring the other claim. The insurance company will want a release signed by the proper party from the family and the estate. Additionally, it is...

    This happened to a family member and we stepped in to be the "buffer" between the the family member and their good friend. We were able to successfully negotiate with the insurance company, which allowed the friends to maintain a great friendship. Depending upon the circumstances of the incident you may or may not have a good case. For instance, there may be a leash law violation etc. I recommend that you contact an experienced AVVO rated attorney. We represent dog bite victims throughout...

    In GA, taxi cab drivers are considered independent contractors and carry the state minimum insurance through Crown Captive Insurance Company. They are a very difficult insursance company and typically deny all claims. We successfully litigated against them numerous times and found ways to maximize recovery over and above the state minimum limits. Based on my past personal past experience with them I am in agreement with the other attorney comments that you will need to hire a personal...

    Based on your question it appears that you have a case under GA law if in fact you slipped on chicken grease and if the store knew or should have known that the hazard was present. It is important to speak to a lawyer in the very near future so that any video evidence taken by store cameras is preserved and not thrown away by the store. I would consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer. Feel free to call our firm or any other qualified AVVO rated attorney.
