    I am an Atlanta lawyer and have done a lot of medical malpractice work. Pretty much everything the other lawyers here have said is correct. I would be willing to take a look at your records and talk with you if you wish. But pretty much everything said here is true. This does not mean you don't have a claim nor that it shouldn't or couldn't be pursued It just means what it says.

    It depends on all the circumstances, but there may be a very good chance. Good decision to refuse the tests. But this has to be gotten on immediately now. A hearing request has to be filed with the State Department of Driver Services within 10 business days of the arrest or the right to retrieve the license will be lost. It sounds to me like this may be a good case. Please contact a lawyer and get on this immediately to avoid losing any chances that might exist. I've handled multiple...

    iI agree with the others here. Based on your description, I think you do have a fair chance of getting at least a reduction. But that is only via a lawyer. I don't think you will be able to accomplish that yourself. It is good that you are being attentive and proactive. But you really must engage a lawyer now. If an early resolution can be obtained, it might not cost you too much. At least talk to a lawyer, immediately. Time is not on your side, including in any negotiations for a...

    Yes. You certainly can ask the court to appoint an attorney to represent you free of charge. Not only can you, you must. You have a Constitutional right to have an attorney appointed to represent you free of charge if you cannot afford to hire one. And it is crazy not to. It will hurt you very much in your case to not be represented by an attorney from the very outset. When you first go to court, tell the judge you want to be represented by an attorney, that you cannot afford one, that...

  5. I was arrested in Acworth Georgia for a Dwi. They claim I was under the influence of some kind of drug.

    Mr. Von Scuch provides very good advice here. Please follow it. You can worry about suing (and post questions about it and get answers to them here) when the DUI case has been taken care of. It is too early to assess that now. Do immediately retain a lawyer to help you with the DUI case and Acworth. First things first.

    I am very sorry to hear about this. I have had similar experiences in my family. All the responses posted here are accurate and helpful. I have handled a number of medical malpractice cases, including failure-to-diagnose cases. As Mr. Sexton correctly notes, they can be difficult cases. But they are not always so. Indeed the issues here likely will be indicia of worsening condition (so as to provide notice of the necessity of substantially accelerated intervention) and causation (whether...

    Mohammad, you need to consult a lawyer immediately, and directly. Your posting here is fine as a first step, but all further consultations need to be private and direct--no more public postings hereafter. This is necessary to get good, informed answers to your questions, which mostly require further information. Feel free to contact me, and I will be glad to talk with you about all this. But do contact some lawyer at least, immediately. Having said all this--and it all being emphatically...

  8. Is a hospital acquired stage 4 decubitus a valid negligence case?

    I'm very sorry you had this experience. I have "been there" in important respects with elderly relatives, myself. The hospital might well have been negligent in its care and treatment of your mother. The apparent absence of relevant indications in the chart is indeed very troubling. I think the tougher issue is, even assuming that negligence, is your case one that is worth pursuing. It might be; and it might not be. It depends on all the circumstances. That may sound like a cop-out, but...

    Yes, you do have grounds to claim compensation from him. The best course would be to obtain compensation from him directly, informally, without the involvement of lawyers--as you apparently have been trying to do. But that very often does not work, as seems to be becoming evident in our situation. If it does not work, then I think you will need to pursue the matter via a lawyer. Often this is necessary to "un-jam" things. The best scenario then would be your lawyer obtaining acceptable...
