    In Georgia the statute of limitations for negligence that causes injury to a person is two (2) years from the date on which an injury or death arising from a negligent or wrongful act or omission occurred. O.C.G.A. § 9-3-31. In Georgia, minors and persons who are legally incompetent (such as mental retardation) at the time of the event causing injury are entitled to have the statute of limitation “tolled” until the person becomes an adult or the legal incompetence no longer exists. O.C.G.A. § 9-...

    You have an attorney who has seen your medical evidence and knows the facts of the case, the available coverage, etc. Asking someone here to take a wild guess with none of that information is not only asking the impossible, but it will, if anyone guesses, get you answers that are likely to be wrong.

    He needs a lawyer. He may be jailed or fined for any charges arising out of the accident. And, depending on many details we don't have, he may be deported.

    In such a catastrophic accident there are two things to do quickly. Number one - get all the medical care you need. You need to recover and get better. Number two - retain experienced counsel. Getting a lawyer involved quickly helps prepare your claims as to recovery for medical bills (current and future), permanent impairment, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering. Studies show that unrepresented parties average receiving less than one-third of represented parties....

    Get FAR away from him. The next time he hits you, and abusers almost always abuse, the assault may be worse, and the next time you could be dead. Sit down with the DA and tell the DA about his pressure to cause you to commit perjury and you may get his bond revoked. Workl hard to get him in jail, and also see a divorce attorney. Staying with an abuser is dangerous, and when one is not owning up to his crimes, you should expect more injuries or a fatality. Note that if you do lie to the...

    Hopefully you have not spoken to the other driver's insurance company. Their goal is not to pay, or to underpay you. On average, you'll get about 80% less that way in a typical case than using a lawyer. It is important that you see a lawyer early in the process (that means now) and also that you get all needed medical care in a timely fashion. Before your vehicle is destroyed, take LOTS of photos. Consultations about accidents with most lawyers, such as myself, are free. Please feel free...

  7. If a person dies and leave five children to split one house, can the executive not sell if the majority wants to sell?

    Wills are not probated by majority vote. Assuming the executor was given normal powers in a will, the executor, after paying debts, has two options with the home: (1) to sell it and split the money 5 ways, and (2) to deed it to all 5 people. If the latter is done, any one child could sue for partition and force a sale. The only way heirs could "fight" the executor would be if the executor violates the will in some way. To know if that is the case, you'd need to sit down with a lawyer.

    I am sorry for your sad news. While you could do a living will, Georgia now has a health care directive that covers both what used to be in a living will and other health care issues. There is a standard (and actually prety good) state form available free on any of the websites below that I have listed for you. However, you may want to do other planning (such as a proper will, durable power of attorney, etc) and those are quite inexpensive, in addition to the medical directive....

    It's not an inheritance, because she's alive. Your mother MAY need to file a federal gift tax return. She can give $14,000 per person ($28,000 if she gave two SEPARATE gifts, one to you and one to your wife) or after January 1, 2013 with no return needed. (The figure was $13,000 if this happened in 2012). Unless the gifts were very large even if a return is needed there may not be a tax. Consult your CPA if the per person gift exceeded the amount listed.

    You should NOT talk to the insurer at all. Every word you say will be recorded and used against you, and they already have a lawyer ready to go. Studies show that unrepresented people generally receive 70-80% less than represented parties. Let me focus on the part of the question you glossed over. It is very possible that the personal injury claims will significantly exceed the car claim. This is the area where attorneys make all the difference in the world. It is vital that you seek...
