Hi, I have an Indiana driving license, but living in Wisconsin. Recently moved. I received a speeding ticket (42 on a 30 mph). I was checking online to pay it and for a long time it was not letting me to pay it. Just today I realized that I...
There is more here than you are telling us. You do not have to appear in Court for a speeding ticket. That said, you should never pay a speeding ticket. You are always better off to a higher a traffic attorney in an effort to keep points off of your license.
If you failed to appear, there is probably a bench warrant for your arrest and your license has been suspended. Called the traffic alert when you return from vacation and asked if the Court will give you an opportunity to appear. If the Court says no, your only option is to hire an attorney now.See question

It's nearly 2 years since your accident. You know that it's illegal not to have health insurance. You know that the Affordable Care Act eliminated pre-existing conditions. If you are only just beginning to be symptomatic, more than 18 months after your accident and you are claiming a back injury, it will be nearly impossible for any orthopedic doctor to establish a causal relationship between your fall and your injury.
You need to understand the there is absolutely nothing that any attorney can do unless or until you have the diagnosis and a causation opinion from a medical doctor. When you are injured, it is absolutely imperative that you seek medical care, immediately. If you have no money or insurance, you could have applied for public aid.See question

What coverage do I need in order to be covered for work injury? I am the only "employee" of my sub-s Corp and act as a contractor with my clients. Thank you
No. You health insurance carrier should cover the claim. It would probably be VERY inexpensive to purchase WC coverage for yourself so you have the additional benefits like income while you recover from an injury. I carry WC coverage on myself.See question

The terrible detail of the tech's death has NOTHING to do with your claim. They will repair the bike unless the repairs exceed the FMV in which case they will total the bike.See question

My husband was arrested for failure to register, which resulted in 2 PV. He was arrested because we were to close to a daycare. With court document we proved it wasn't a daycare. His lawyer also found from the Federal Court of Appeals, that the de...
I agree with my colleagues, no judge has the authority to amend a plea agreement. The Court can only accept or reject the plea. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS. YOU NEED TO MAKE YOUR ARGUMENTS TO THE PROSECUTOR, NOT THE COURT.See question
I signed a Diversion for criminal conversion and didn't receive any paperwork later so I didn't pay or do my community service I also live about 500 miles away from the state I was arrested in. They put out a warrant if I appear in court (traffic ...
It Is silly to say that you "signed" paper work that you did not receive. If you needed a copy of paperwork, you could have picked up the telephone and requested one. Your only real option now is to contact a criminal defense attorney in the jurisdiction where the matter is pending to see if your attorney can get the warrant recalled. If you simply surrender yourself to the jurisdiction, they would be required to place you under arrest and hold you until a judge was available for your initial Hearing when the Court would set bond. You will remain in custody until you pay the bond.See question
I had part of a finger amputated at work in Dec. 15. I am still under doctor care and was fired for job performance.
The simple answer is YES. The ONLY thing that you cannot be fired for during the pendency of a work injury is the fact that you filed a claim. If you do not have an attorney, NO CLAIM HAS BEEN FILED WITH THE ILLINOIS WORKER'S COMPENSATION COMMISSION. If true, that would make retaliatory discharge virtually impossible.
YOU STILL NEED AN ATTORNEY!
For Illinois Workers' Compensation claims, you will ALWAYS cheat yourself if your do not hire experienced counsel. You will have someone to guide you through the process AND when it is time to settle, an attorney can add value to your case IN EXCESS of his fee. So, you have fewer headaches AND you get more money. It really is a no-brainer.
