    Bruce’s Answer

    Contact your insurer immediately so you do not have to wait any longer without a car. Just because you have a deductible does not mean that you will necessarily have to pay it out of pocket to get the ball rolling on the matter. Make sure to ask if you have rental car coverage just so that you can get a car immediately if the other drivers insurance continues to give you the run around.

    IF you are injured or in pain, get medical treatment and make sure to call a PI attorney.

  • I was in an accident last week in GA. No injuries to either occupant in both vehicles. Exchanged information since no injuries.

    However, my vehicle was towed from my residence. Towing company say it's a police hold on it, for a possible hit and run/fleeing scene of accident. What can I do?

    Bruce’s Answer

    Contacting the tow yard and asking which police department has a hold is a good, first step. Then call the police. You arent helping yourself if you are sitting around waiting to be contacted.

    If this is NOT a private school the issue of sovereign immunity, the protection under the law that prohibits an agent or agency of the government from being sued without their consent, arises and proper notice must be given to that entity. It is recommended that you speak with a Georgia Personal Injury attorney to help answer more detailed questions concerning this potentially difficult situation.

    Bruce’s Answer

    You can easily send a written letter of termination to notify the attorney you no longer wish for him to represent you concerning this matter. Since it is unlikely he has received an offer on the case you should not owe a fee but may be charged expense fees; postage, medical requests, etc.

  • I have no insurance and can't get medical attention I need for my Walmart claim I need MRI and surgery from slip and fall

    I fell over boxes in floor where they was stocking a girl that worked there was there also

    Bruce’s Answer

    You need to consult with an attorney immediately. You may be able to receive treatment on what we call an "attorney lien" and the doctors can be paid for treatment at the end of your settlement. This situation is all too common and many times the insurance company looks forward to these instances to rush you into a settlement. If you have not done so, please consider hiring an attorney to look over your situation.

    Bruce’s Answer

    In Georgia, it is a requirement before you can (or at the time you) file a lawsuit that you obtain and file a malpractice affidavit, which is a statement from another doctor who practices or teaches within the same medical specialty, that medical negligence occurred. Looking at your facts/case, another medical doctor must testify that what happened to you was below the standard of care and was not a normal risk/complication of the procedure about which you were not warned. As one or more of the other attorneys has already mentioned, some of the problems you have experienced may or may not be known and accepted risks, to which you consented. If they were not, and the actions were in the opinion of another qualified medical professional, you may have a case. That said, whether it is a case that an attorney is willing to accept and pursue may well depend on the amount of injury you suffered, as medical malpractice lawsuits can be very expensive and a law firm may have to be able to feel that the chances of securing a large Judgment or Settlement are high. If you continue to experience lingering problems, I would at least call and consult with a Georgia lawyer who routinely handles medical negligence claims.

    Bruce’s Answer

    I would suggest that you have the original incident reports, witness statements, the prosecutors file and any external surveillance recordings from the parking garage reviewed by an experienced premises liability attorney. From your description, it sounds like the police may have believed you were an aggressor in the incident, and, you may need to prove that you were not. The prosecutor's file may contain information that is helpful in establishing what evidence exists, and whether there is evidence tending to show that the complex negligently allowed a criminal threat to exist at the time of the incident.
