    Most attorneys here in Utah would not take a case like this because it costs more to litigate than the possible outcome of the case. The main reason for this is that the at-fault insurance considers the amount of property damage vs. the claimed injury. In this case, $600 does not constitute a significant impact and therefore even though this accident may have exacerbated a prior injury, GEICO does not feel that the treatment received was reasonable and necessary. You should pursue small...

    I'm sorry to hear about your injury. Based on what you're saying, I'm not exactly sure if you actually hired an attorney or if the attorney just said that he could not help you. Utah is a no-fault state which means that you are entitled to at least $3000 medical coverage even if the accident was your fault. That money can get depleted pretty quickly especially if you went to the ER, got an MRI, etc. If the accident was not your fault, an attorney would be able to recover more money for your...

    Court supervised probation is common when it is your first offense. You must also make sure that you let the court know when you've changed your address; this is especially important if the court sends you notice of something.

    It is solely the prosecutor's decision on whether he wants to proceed with a case, despite noncooperation from the "victim." The prosecutor may take the case as far as a trial just to prove a point. In my experience, it is very helpful when the victim gets her own attorney who advises her of her spousal privilege rights. This attorney can also get in touch with the prosecutor and let him know that the victim does not want to testify. That often gets the prosecutor to drop the case.

  5. How can I get my case dismissed? Is it absolutely necessary for me to hire an attorney?

    There are several ways to get your case dismissed but it is not a guarantee. An attorney would be your best bet, but no, it is not absolutely necessary. If you can't afford an attorney, you may be eligible for a public defender which you can apply for at the court. The reason I say hiring an attorney is best is because he/she will know every possible tactic to employ to possibly get you a dismissal. A plea in abeyance is certainly possible, depending on your criminal record. Or after...

    If I understand your question correctly, the DUI charge may affect your prior charge if the court for the prior charge discovers the DUI charge. But the prior charge should not affect the DUI charge.

    It is very difficult to answer this question. In addition to what the attorney has mentioned above, you also want to factor in your "future medicals". It's also important to know what the policy limits are on the other person's insurance. There are other things to consider as well.

    Without knowing the facts of your case, it is extremely difficult to answer your question. You need an attorney to help you with this, whether a private attorney or public defender. This could be a case where all the charges are dismissed, two out of three are dismissed, you get a plea in abeyance, or perhaps you can reduce it to a disorderly conduct. These kinds of scenarios can happen with just one court hearing or several. The possibilities are endless.

  9. My son was on a 18 month probation for a possesion of marajuana charge, at 17 months he got a public intox charge.

    In addition to the above advice, it would be best to resolve the public intox charge AFTER the full 18 months of probation. Meaning, if he's going to plead guilty to it, do it after probation.

    I agree with the above attorney. In addition, depending on the facts of your case, you may be able to dismiss it, amend the charge, or get a plea in abeyance. In each of these scenarios you may be able to expunge the case even sooner than four years.
