    There are many reasons that law enforcement or the prosecutor did not seek criminal charges against the other driver, though that doesn't mean there are not grounds for criminal charges. If you truly believe there are factors that the police should but aren't considering, then don't stop trying to, legally, obtain and present that evidence to the police. Your attorney can obtain a great deal of information through the civil legal process and if the other driver was doing something such as...

    I am so sorry to here about this horrible accident. The first thing you need to do is take care of yourself. Second, you need to hire an attorney in the Atlanta area who is experienced in catastrophic injuries from car accidents. Do not make any statements to the other drivers' insurance companies and don't sign any documents with the insurance companies until you speak with an attorney. You should have no problem having an attorney give you a free consultation at your convenience. I hope...

    Your attorney as a matter of course should copy you with all correspondence and documents involved with your case as he/she receives or generates those documents.

    Ditto to the prior answers. There may be times that your attorney can't speak with you right away, but your calls should be returned within a reasonable period of time.

    If a lawsuit was filed and is still proceeding, it may be more time before you receive money. You need to sit down with your attorney to get a full explanation of where the case stands at this time.

    Though I would need more information, you should be able to settle for more than that amount. It sounds like you are trying to handle this matter without an attorney. I would seek out assistance from a local personal injury attorney. Sid Weinstein, Accident Injury Attorney 404-552-3108

    I am currently pursuing a similar case. There is specific information an attorney will need from you to determine if you have a case. These are difficult cases to sustain because of what is called sovereign immunity" of the government entity that controls the institution in which you were incarcerated. If you have a case will depend on the very specific facts surrounding the incident and at least the policies and procedures of the institution. If you would like to discuss with me, you...

    As you appear to be represented, your attorney can answer these questions for you in detail, but yes your attorney will need to get copies of your medical treatment records and submit them to the insurance company for the insurance company to be able to make a decision. You will need to look at your contract with your attorney to see if you will be charged for the cost of the medical records. Normally, the records come certified when requested by your attorney so that the insurance company...
