    It sounds sadly that you hired one of the bankruptcy mills, rather than a sole practitioner or small firm where you meet and work with the lawyer who is going to court with you. That really matters a great deal to clients, but once you file a case and pay, it's pretty late in the process to change. You could certainly seek a second opinion to review your case with another attorney such as myself just to make sure nothing major appears wrong, but the main thing your post may do is warn...

    The way you posted, no. But I'd want to see the deed as you may have omitted other language that changes the answer. If the answer is no, a probate is needed and some serious effort to locate family is needed. If the answer is yes, no probate is needed. Edith needs to see a lawyer ASAP.

    There are two ways he could be responsible. One will be if he signs anything at the hospital that obligates him, and if he has done so (it's pretty common), he's responsible for what he signs. Also, if she passes away, in probate, her debts must be settled before heirs get paid, although there are sometimes ways around that (such as year's support) to discuss with a lawyer.

    Most times in these cases you will be convicted. In Georgia, a driver has a duty to maintain a sufficient distance from cars in front to be able to stop in an emergency. Note that cases are fact dependent, and you should meet with an attorney to determine if you should enter a plea (likely nolo), defend the case, or perhaps pretry the case with the solicitor. There is a likelihood in a case like this that Car B's passengers will later claim injuries and sue, and your insurer will defend or...

    You haven't said what the letter said, but this is why you carry car insurance. Give the letter to your car insurer, and they will defend you and pay any claims.

    Your post is confusing, but it sounds like you filed suit, dismissed it and refiled in a new county, and then lost the case 7 months ago. If that is correct, you are asking too late, as the right to appeal or make a motion for new trial expires 30 days after the verdict. (Since your post is confusing, and possibly doesn't contain all the facts, I suggest you call your attorney from the case as he knows the details and can best answer you.)

    Lawyers have to hold the check long enough to clear before they can disburse. That length of time varies by bank but usually is at least 3-5 business days. In some cases it can be a bit longer. Your lawyer wants you to have it as soon as possible, as he cannot pay himself his share until he also pays you, so be patient.

    If your idea is to handle this yourself, statistically, unrepresented litigants get about 80% less than ones with lawyers. So stop talking to the insurer before you lower your case value and get counsel. And yes, there are new requirements this year that affect how attorneys interact with insurers that probably apply to your case. House Bill 366 provides for certain pre-suit settlement offers and agreements as to tort claims arising out of use of motor vehicles and can be read at http://...

    That's likely no problem at all (absent very unusual facts not in your post) and actually is pretty common.
