    Jeremiah’s Answer

    Good answers above. One other suggestion, make sure you show up if they reschedule. Don't use this as a reason to not cooperate.

  • I was involved in an out of state accident and am being subpoenaed because the guy that hit me is pleading not guilty.

    The guy who hit me was going too fast and tried going around me as I was completing a left turn. He didn't make it and hit the front corner of my car with his rear fender before going airborne and landing on top of a fence. The officer told me I...

    Jeremiah’s Answer

    Since you are out of state, the subpoena issued may not be binding. However, it sounds as though you want be present so that the guy doesn't walk. As Mr. Fergerson suggested, calling the prosecutor is a smart first step.

    Jeremiah’s Answer

    You should definitely contact a lawyer. You can call a personal injury lawyer in your area for a recommendation. Some personal injury lawyers will defend people but will not work for an insurance company. I do this on occasion on an hourly basis. In any event, you need some help.

    Jeremiah’s Answer

    I would talk to a competent criminal defense lawyer in your area. There are not enough facts in your post and I would not advise adding more. What you post on the Internet is not confidential. What you discuss with a lawyer is.

  • My divorce decree doesn't state the age of when medical insurance should stop, but my daughter is 18 and we live in AL.

    My ex-wife is trying to say that her lawyer said I am to continue insurance on daughter til she is 19, and she is working and has quit school at the age of 17. Is this correct even though it doesn't state in my divorce decree about any age?

    Jeremiah’s Answer

    19 is the age of majority in Alabama. I would expect that if the agreement does not speak to the issue, the Court would require 19. If there are other issues in play, the analysis could be different.

    Jeremiah’s Answer

    You should call and meet with a lawyer. It sounds like you may have a legitimate claim. It is likely a case that would be taken on a contingency fee, this simply means that you do not pay an attorneys's fee unless a recovery is made.

  • Can i get in trouble for not paying a guy back for his car that i hit?

    i hit a guys car about 2 months ago. we got out and he agreed not to report the incident but that i would just pay him back. i no longer plan on paying him back so can i legally get in trouble for that if he calls the police?

    Jeremiah’s Answer

    Yes. In addition to negligence, may also be sued for fraud. I once sued a driver that did exactly what you were doing. I obtained a significant judgment. The fact finder was outraged that the defendant caused the wreck, agreed to pay my client's expenses, and then refused to hold up his end of the deal. You need to do the right thing.

  • Driver of car accident fell asleep can I sue his insurance company

    on the accident report the driver that caused the accident said he fell asleep and didn't know he had hit me till he got out of his car and saw the damage

    Jeremiah’s Answer

    The short answer is that you can file a lawsuit against the individual that hit you. NOT the insurance company, in fact the Jury if your case was tried will never be told that insurance is even involved. If the individual was working for his company at the time of the wreck you have a claim against the company for the damages caused by the individual "in the course and scope of his employment. I have handled many cases in Marshall County and I can tell you it is generally a very conservative venue, but has good and fair judges. Because memories fade and stories of guilty people sometimes change over time, I recommend that you contact a lawyer familiar with Marshall County as soon as possible. If I can answer any additional questions, please do not hesitate call. I also recommend that you immediately take pictures of your vehicle and any visible injuries.

  • What's a "Charge Off"

    Jeremiah’s Answer

    • Selected as best answer

    People often call us and are under the misconception that they no longer owe a debt because it has been "charged off" This is inaccurate. Essentially, when the credit card company "charges off" the debt, they are simply removing it from the company's internal books. Often, these charged off "bad debts" are then sold to collection agencies. If you are considering bankruptcy, you should immediately consult with a competent bankruptcy lawyer before deciding to pay or not pay any existing debts.
