    Yes, you certainly need a lawyer. As has been said, your husband may be entitled to both compensatory and punitive damages.

    Norman’s Answer

    The police officer is correct, the rules of the road only apply to the road, not to private property. The other driver cannot get a ticket for driving on private property. However, I do agree that it does not matter as far a any civil liability goes on the other driver.

  • If as a pedestrian I am hit by a negligent driver who has minimum coverage and my medical bills twice that amount.

    How do I ensure that I can get more than policy limits. No UM insurance so I presume this cannot be stacked.

    Norman’s Answer

    Unfortunately, there is no way to ensure that you get more than the policy limits. There is a type of demand you can make where you demand the policy limits and give the insurance company a reasonable amount of time to accept your demand. If they don't accept it, and you go to court and get a judgment over the policy limits, they may have to pay the full amount of the judgement for failing to protect their insured's interests. However, if they accept your demand, that is all you can get. The only other way is to sue the person who hit you and get a judgment against them and collect anything over their policy limits from them personally. However, they may not have enough assets to pay a judgment. As you can see, this is very complicated, If you would like to discuss, please call me at 770-973-2599, ext 203.

  • Can a insuranse company pay me for medical bills and.let me be responsible for the bills

    I was hut in a car wreck

    Norman’s Answer

    It's unlikely that the insurance company will pay you directly as the medical providers may have a lien against the case. If they pay you, and you don't pay the medical providers, the providers can go after the insurance company, and they don't want that to happen. It's better if you discuss your case with a personal injury attorney. If you want, you can call me at 770-973-2599, ext 203, or visit my web page listed below.

    Norman’s Answer

    It is difficult to answer this questions without additional facts, however there is basically nothing stopping a prosecutor from charging someone with a crime. That is the easy part. Getting a conviction is another matter. I would definitely seek the advice of a local criminal defense attorney before doing anything else.

  • How do appeals work?

    My husband put in a motion to suppress in lower court and was denied. Now he wants to appeal it. Does the appeal go to the same judge that denied it in the first place or to another judge?

    Norman’s Answer

    Usually you have to appeal to the Georgia Court of Appeals. They have very strict rules and most often won't hear the appeal until after the trial is over with.

  • My car was totaled after a traffic accident and the insurance offered my less 4K less than what the car is worth. What do i do?

    How do i proceed with the insurance Company

    Norman’s Answer

    In Georgia you are entitled to the fair market value for your car; that is what you car would sell for on the open market.. This can be proved through the Kelly Blue Book Value, classified ads for similar cars, etc. In Georgia, I do not believe that it is necessary to bring in an expert to prove fair market value.

  • Is a TBI and bodily scarring worth much in an auto accident claim?

    I was in a no fault, multi-car, rear end accident and have a small scar on my face and arm. More importantly, I had a brain hemorrhage, but did not suffer any major long term effects. However, I constantly have headaches. Is this case really worth...

    Norman’s Answer

    There are several variables regarding settlement value of a case. Some of these are; the amount of medical bills, lost wages, venue (case would be brought in county where the at-fault party lives), amount of insurance coverage, etc. You also need to watch out for possible liens where you may have to reimburse your health insurance carrier for your medical bills under Federal law. I would be more than happy to discuss this case with you. I can be reached at 770-973-2599, ext. 203.

    Norman’s Answer

    If the driver of the other car was from NC, you probably want to hire a NC attorney. With a drunk driver involved, who has previous convictions for DUI, you might be able to get significant punitive damages, even on a property damage claim. You can also make a claim for your medical bills and pain and suffering. I would contact a North Carolina attorney immediately.
