    I got a ticket in 2013 for no insurance after I had dented someone's car door. His insurance company fixed his damage, sued me, and now has had the Great State of Mississippi suspend my license. How do I get a hardship license?

    Stacy’s Answer

    You will have to satisfy the civil judgment before you can get your license reinstated. Once you get the judgment paid then you can show proof from the Court to the DMV that you paid it and then get your license reinstated.

    If you are represented currently, then please discuss your questions with your attorney. There is no good reason you should settle with the insurance company without hiring a personal injury attorney to help you. There may be other insurance coverage available and you certainly don't want to leave money untapped. I am very sorry for your loss.

    Mississippi is a 'work at will' state and an employer can fire you for any reason they want as long as its not a violation of your civil rights such as race or gender or similar violation of your protected rights. Further, the employer does not have to give you ANY reason at all if they fire you. There are very few exceptions, but if you have an employment contract then it would depend on the language of your employment contract. As mentioned by previous attorney comments, if your shoulder injury was job related then you should hire a workers compensation attorney immediately, but even then they can still fire you if you were off work due to a work related injury. I hope you get well soon. Best Wishes.

    You may qualify for an expungement and have the charges and arrest removed from your record. The process you would need to do it hire an attorney to file the Petition with the Court, then generally there is a hearing set and the Judge will consider whether to expunge the conviction. There should be plenty of attorneys in the Starkville area who can help you with this and it is not that expensive. If the cahrges are successfully expunged, it will be as if it never happened. Best Wishes and Happy Holidays.

  • What can I do and is this person responsible for my monetary cost

    I was falsely accused of trespassing and theft. I recently went to court and the case was dismissed. I would like to know if I could sue this person to retain the fees I paid for bail as well for defamation. I own my own livestock removal busines...

    Stacy’s Answer

    Generally speaking, I think it would be a waist of your time to sue them for falsely accusing you. For example, can you prove the accusations were false? Just because the charges were dropped does not mean the accusations were false. You think it "may" cause you to loose customers, but until it does you have no damages. Sometimes a person may have a good reason to sue and can prove it, but if there is not enough damages therefore it is not economically worth bringing a lawsuit. I don't know all the facts of your situation but I wanted to give you some ideas to consider. I hope this helps.

  • Can I sue ambulance companies?

    I need to know if I can sue two ambulance companies. My husband was ran over literally his body not his vehicle himself by a house moving truck. When ambulances were called out one ambulance company was 15 mins away one was 35 mins away the one wh...

    Stacy’s Answer

    Your husband can sue the house moving company if they were at fault for running your husband over. I don't see any reason to sue the ambulance companies.If the owner of the moving company is saying his insurance won't cover him, you need to hire a accident attorney and sue him (his company) if it was their fault. I hope your husband makes a speedy recover and y'all can enjoy some holiday time together. Also, you should talk to an accident attorney to discuss the details more and certainly don't give any kind of recorded statement to the insurance company representative.

  • I was involved in an auto accident. The person that hit me was uninsured. My insurance company paid for my damages.

    I am being sued by the uninsured driver. My lawyer was provided by my insurance company. She wants to file a counterclaim and wants me to sign a "ratification" agreement that would waive their subrogation rights so that the ins. company is not a n...

    Stacy’s Answer

    Since you are represented by counsel, even though not one of your choosing, you should start asking them to explain what they mean by waiving their subrogation claim. Usually the UM carrier waives their subrogation claim based on them approving the settlement agreement with the tortfeasors and the injured party. You situation does not make sense to me because the other party who your attorney wishes to counterclaim against is uninsured, so that would mean that they & you intend to go against the other driver personally and generally that is only feasible if the person has money or assets worth going through all the trouble a collecting even if you are successful with your lawsuit. I can not say anymore about the "ratification agreement" without seeing the language it contains, but I think you biggest concern will be does this create a conflict between you and the attorney the insurance company assigned to you. I hope that helps.
