    You are going to receive a lot of answers given the type of case you have and the serious injuries you have sustained. Do this for yourself - look up that lawyer on his website and think to yourself is this someone I want on my side on my team. If that's me, terrific. If it's someone else that's good too. Give that lawyer a call and meet. You'll get a lot of your answers.

    Darren’s Answer

    I believe you are looking for a family law attorney. You may have more luck posting your question under that topic. However, addressing your question it will likely cost you the court filing fees and a one time payment in attorneys fee for 3-4 hours of work.

  • Are injury and criminal attorneys' cases worth the most?

    Out of all the attorneys? Just wondering, thanks.

    Darren’s Answer

    Depends on what YOU consider "worth the most." Criminal defense attorneys cannot charge a client a contingency fee in any state. That is illegal. A personal injury attorney can charge a contingency fee which ranges but is usually 1/3 to 40% of the case. So it depends on whose perspective you look at it from. If you think you need an attorney, you probably do - consult with one and then make an informed decision.

  • Which cases are worth more, wrongful death or medical malpractice?

    Just wondering, thanks.

    Darren’s Answer

    That is a difficult question because each case is so fact specific. Typically, a case with a higher value involves injuries that leave the plaintiff with a normal life expectancy, but the person injuredneeds lifetime care. Again, it is based on the facts so this is hard to answer.

  • Can I sue the company and the person driving the company truck?

    I was involved in a hit and run early Saturday morning around 1:45AM. I followed the guy and got the tag number. At the time of the accident I had a minor headache. I woke up Saturday afternoon in serious pain. Went to urgent care and got an exam ...

    Darren’s Answer

    The answer is yes. It's that simple. And good for you for following the driver and tracking him down. You would have a case against the driver and the company itself if he was driving while working as an employee of the company. You can recover for your property damage, personal injuries, lost income, and pain and suffering.

    A hit and run accident is considered a serious crime in the state of Georgia, and one that comes with stiff legal consequences. Georgia law clearly stipulates that it is illegal to leave the scene of an accident before driver information is exchanged, injuries are attended to, and/or police or emergency professionals arrive on the scene. Drivers who fail to do so are committing a “hit and run”- which, depending on the circumstances, can be classified as a felony or a misdemeanor. Drivers who commit a hit and run are subject to large penalties and possible substantial prison time, depending in part on the severity of the crash and injuries sustained.
