I was rear ended by a drunk driver..
My car is totaled, I have been getting chiropractic treatments for my neck and shoulder. Long story short, I was in a desperate situation with no vehicle and a short timeline to pay off the remaining balance on my auto loan. I accepted what I thought was a decent settlement. I signed yesterday, come today, I find out I have a labral tear. Is there any way for me to get out of the settlement? Any advice is appreciated.
Probably not but contact your attorney if you had one and you should have had one in the first place. No attorney...
Is it important to have a lawyer present for arraignment in the circumstances described below?
Blake (23) is working at Pederson Pt AK. He went to Fishtival in Naknek with a group driven by a designated driver. Vehicle got stuck on return. He was the only guy, and the driver couldn't free the vehicle. He got in drivers seat to free it. Police came. He had not moved the vehicle, but was arrested for DUI. He and the designated driver were tested. He passed all but breathalyzer, the designated driver did pass all. The officer disregarded the driver and passenger statements. My daughter recorded his arrest. With statements and witnesses supporting that he did not move the vehicle, he is still facing DUI charges. His boss helped him contact a lawyer from Bethel, that says the law is not in his favor and implied that his $5000.00 retainer is not worth paying. Blake was only trying to free the vehicle. He is a very responsible young man, has lost friends to drinking and driving, is always the one people call when they need a ride. He would NEVER drink and drive. I'm not just saying this because I'm his mom. He has been through a lot and helped so many people. He doesn't deserve this. Please someone fight for him!
He needs an attorney. ... Not just for arraignment. The law may not be in his favor but a good defense attorney ( if he...
I was rear ended by a drunk driver who was operating a vehicle on a revoked license.
I previously discovered that he was convicted 2 years ago for DUI, his fines were pretty high, leading me to believe it wasn't his first time. My car is totaled, from the whip lash , I have been suffering neck and shoulder pain. What is a reasonable settlement offer in this case? I just want the insurance company to be fair and act in good faith. I really would like to settle this on my own if possible, but If the adjuster isn't willing to play nice, I have no choice but to obtain an attorney.
This ended up in the criminal defense forum and it is not that. You need to consult with a personal injury attorney...
Will I have to complete the DWI course back in Arkansas or can I complete the course in Alaska.
I received a 2nd offense DWI in Arkansas back in July 2012. My first offense was in Arkansas back in December 2008.

This is part of the process I must complete to try to get my driver's license back.
Talk with the Social Security Administration to find out if you can do this. Also, talk to the County Clerk to...
How long are original court documents kept for DUI? Can AK provide an authenticated court document from 2001?
15 years ago I was convicted of DUI in Ketchikan. Although I was eligible for diversion I unknowingly used out of state alcohol classes not recognized by AK so the conviction stuck. I have recently been charged with DUI in Colorado (again lower BAC at 0.09). Colorado is a lifetime lookback state so this Ketchikan conviction can be used against me. However Colorado will require authenticated copies of the conviction from the clerk of the appropriate court. It appears that authenticated copies in AK require the original document to be present in the court. How long are original documents kept in Alaska court? Ketchikan Trial Court. When I look up the case online it indicates "All Records Prior to 05/14/10 are Converted Records."
Simple answer is essentially forever. Even if converted to digital they would be admissible as public documents....
