    Kevin’s Answer

    It is possible to be sued for almost anything. It is as easy as paying the filing fee to the clerk of court and submitting the complaint. However, not every suit has merit. Considering the sparse facts that you have provided, I don't believe a suit for intentional infliction of emotional distress against you would have merit.

  • Should a case be settled if you're still under doctors care?

    Slip and fall injury.

    Kevin’s Answer

    if you are still under the care of a doctor, then it is safe to assume that you have not reached maximum medical improvement. In other words, you are not done treating. And, you should not try to settle your case until you are done treating so as to obtain the maximum possible settlement . Would you buy a home that was only halfway finished?

    Kevin’s Answer

    There are two factors that are working against you in this claim. First, the ALJ denied your claim. Second, your treating doctor released you to work without restriction. I think it would be difficult to find an attorney to take on your appeal in this setting.

    The facts you provided are too sparse to determine whether liability rests with the owner of the premises. Contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

  • Should I plead not guilty for my case?

    I rear ended the front car on I-85 S in Atlanta. I was driving at 30-40 miles per hour, and the front car hit brake and stopped on I-85, and I hit the brake and still slide to the front car. The police did not give me ticket at the scene, but he s...

    Kevin’s Answer

    I would not plead guilty as a guilty plea could be used in a subsequent lawsuit by any injured parties against you. Atlanta provides the option to pay without pleading guilty. Contact the number listed on your citation.

  • Auto insurance denying liability

    I was rear ended not too long ago. The police report was incomplete because they never took my statement. Now, the at fault party's insurance company, that initially denied liability, is requesting that my auto repair shop send them pictures and a...

    Kevin’s Answer

    The insurer had a duty to adjust promptly and fairly. And, the insurer has a duty to its insured to confirm the facts of the collision to determine fault and property damage that was proximately caused by the collision. This is normal.

    Kevin’s Answer

    Was this a hit and run motorist that is known or unknown? If known, then contact his car insurer immediately. There are plenty of health clinics that would be happy to treat you in the Stone Mountain area. I would recommend that you use an experienced personal injury attorney.

  • If I sue the person who hit me from behind and totaled my car do I have a good chance on getting money for pain and suffering?

    A driver of a 1984 truck was not paying attention while I was stopped and slammed into my car causing me to rear end the suv in front of me. My head slammed against the steering wheel and my car was totaled. I'm thinking about pursuing a law suit ...

    Kevin’s Answer

    A closed head injury is quite serious and you would be well served if you contact an experienced injury attorney. The damages to a 1984 truck may very well exceed the value of the car. In my experience with Clayton County, juries will find the motorist liable for following too closely behind you. So in a nutshell, i believe on the facts that you have provided that would be able to prove that you were injured and sustained pain and suffering.

  • I fell in a icy hotel parking lot in January. Who is responsible for my medical bills?

    The staff or management did nothing to assist me or give me a person to contact. My boyfriend called later that night and again nothing. I went to hospital with serious abrasions and needed MRI and x-rays. I did sustain some scarring, but have ...

    Kevin’s Answer

    The hotel and/or owner of the premises where you slipped and fell may be liable for the incident. If you can show that the hotel/owner knew or should've known of the icy condition and failed to properly maintain the premises in a safe condition, then you may have a case. If the ice is still present, I would take pictures immediately. You should also contact an experienced personal injury attorney for further advice.
