  • Insurance co sent me 15 day letter. Can they close the claim?

    I was in an accident in mid december (not at fault), and i've been trying to negotiate with the other driver's insurance company with no luck. I received a letter today stating that they are offering me the same amount they have been, and "if we ...

    I practice exclusively Personal Injury Law in Georgia and I will tell you the insurance companies can 'say' whatever they wish, but you have 2 years in most instances to file an Injury claim. Artifical insurance company deadlines mean absolutly nothing and there is no such thing as a 15 days rule.

    I will say that is almost every instance, insurance companies will try and take advantage of injured plaintiff's that are not represented by experienced attorneys.

    I am happy to discuss this matter more specifically if you wish.

  • Can I be sued if a student slipped off a chair?

    One of my students was helping with our daily classroom community jobs when she slipped off the chair after erasing the date. Can the parent sue me, the school district or both?

    James’s Answer

    I would like to know more facts and I am happy to give a more detailed response if you contact my office, but in short, if this matter occurred in Georgia there are only very specific instances that the parent can make a claim under these facts.

    In fact, with the current state of immunity provided to Georgia public schools and school employees, I would document the accident with the proper inter school department and not worry about the situation. I am happy to discuss the matter further if this response is not acceptable.

  • What can i do.

    I live in Georgia and I hit a horse early morning while still dark . is the owner liable?

    James’s Answer

    I agree with the other lawyers that have responded. My only additional thought would be to call the authorities as soon as possible and complete a Police Report. That will be a key piece of proof later if you are asked for independant verification. GOOD LUCK!

  • Can I sue the person who stole my identity in small claims court?

    In 2006, my ex boyfriend's mother used my name and social to open gas, electric and phone accounts. I had no knowledge nor did I give her permission to do so. I disputed all of them as fraudulent accounts, and I have gone through hell trying to re...

    James’s Answer

    My advice would be to contact the authorities immediately and get a police report completed. This will be the best 'proof' to have these things removed from your credit report and restore your good name.

  • I was recently in an auto accident (the was not my fault), my car was considered a total loss.

    I am currently in a chapter 13 case. What process will I have to go through to buy another car??

    James’s Answer

    With regard to the automobile collision on ice, we would need to establish if you have a coverage common on most policies that would provide you with basic coverage that would provide you with an option to pay for your totaled vehicle.
