    To recover any money, the injured person has to prove liability and damages. Having successfully proven both elements, there is no limit on the amount of money that the person could recover (with certain exceptions) in Georgia. The amount of money that a case settles for is the amount that the injured person is willing to accept and the at-fault party is willing to pay.

    YES. A commercial vehicle wreck is not like a passenger vehicle wreck. Do not treat them the same way. Commercial trucks are governed by different regulations, called the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, which may provide additional theories of liability and damages, including punitive damages, which are intended to punish and deter the wrongdoer. Few lawyers are qualified to handle trucking cases. Do your homework. Make sure that the lawyer you hire has experience not just...

    I do not know, but perhaps there is another side of the story that you have not heard, and when the lawyers heard the other side of the story, they determined that the case was not defensible or that it would not be in the defendant's best interest to spend money on a lawyer when there was no reasonable chance of prevailing. Again, I do not know the answer and am only presenting one possible scenario where lawyers may decide not to represent a particular defendant. There are many other...

    He can petition the judge to have the bench warrant withdrawn. He does not have to turn himself in. The purpose of a bench warrant is simply to ensure the defendant's presence in court, so once he appears in court, the bench warrant will be withdrawn.

    First, with all due respect to lawyers who are not licensed to practice law in Georgia, be wary of any information from such lawyers (even though they are trying to help you) because laws governing venue and other matters vary from state to state. Second, do not treat a tractor trailer wreck like a passenger car wreck. They are very different. Different laws apply (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations), and there may be grounds for punitive damages that you would have no idea about....

    If you were charged with a violation of O.C.G.A. Section 40-6-270, the State must prove that you knew the accident occurred and knew of the damage to the other vehicle before leaving the scene. Lawrence v. State, 257 Ga. App. 592 (2002). The applicable statute defines "hit-and-run" as: (1) Knowingly (2) failing to immediately stop and return to or remain at the scene of (3) an accident involving the accused (4) which resulted in injury to or the death of any person or damage to...

  7. DUI laws in Georgia are brutal. Why does department of driver services require you to go through so much to get your license?

    The Department of Driver Services requires you to go through so much to get your license reinstated after 2 DUIs because DUI is a very serious crime, and the Georgia legislature has enacted laws it felt were necessary to protect innocent motorists and pedestrians from the dangers associated with impaired drivers. The burdensome process for license reinstatement is just another form of punishment for what the DDS and legislature considers very serious criminal behavior. And, as long as non-...

    First, as a matter of general information, publishing a person's name in connection with allegations of criminal conduct puts you at risk of being sued for defamation of character. Second, you may have a viable case against the provider, but without more information, it would be impossible to give you a definite answer. Be aware that there is a statute of limitations (deadline) in cases like yours, so time is of the essence. Talk to a lawyer in your area soon. Many offer free consultations.

    If you were injured less than 9 months ago and your lawyer has already helped you settle your case, your lawyer is doing you a very good job. If time is more important to you than money, instruct your attorney to pay the total face amount of the bills immediately and to deliver your settlement check to you immediately. Otherwise, be patient, and allow your lawyer to continue doing a good job for you.

    Rather than trying to learn this area of law from scratch and worry yourself sick over what to write, do, and say, consider just hiring the best lawyer you can afford, and follow that lawyer's advice. Things will turn out a lot better, and you will get some sleep.
