How can I get blood test results back?
I'm trying to find out information for a friend. He is currently incarcerated in a county jail. They are withholding work release pending the results of a blood test for alcohol. The blood was sent to the state police lab in Lansing. When I called them, they said that results are mailed back to the agency that submitted the sample within 2 weeks. It has been 5 weeks since it was submitted. He doesn't have a lawyer. What does he need to do to get these results? The jail is saying it will take 6-8 weeks for results, but the lab says that they already have them.
In all sincerity, the most effective way for your friend to speed up the process is for him to retain a lawyer to...

My breath test read a BAC of .19 which I realize falls under 'super drunk' in Michigan. In your professional opinion, is it advisable to plea guilty or not guilty? Also, is it common for jail time to be sentenced when BAC is over .17?

Still charged with DUI?
My Mother was visiting South Lyon MI and got pulled over for her tail light being out. A road side test was conducted and she failed her breathlyzer with .19 BAC. Cop told her that he didn't want to deal with her passenger (was passed out and vomited) so he was not going to arrest her but car was impounded. He gave her a ticket for Tail lights being out and improper turn. Will she still get charged for a dui if not arrested?

Can I sue a drunk driver that rear-ended me?
I was in an auto accident Sunday night. A super drunk driver hit me from behind very hard. Lots of damage to my vehicle. He was arrested on the spot and taken to jail. The police said it was not his first offense etc etc. They had me checked out in the ambulance but did not take me to the hospital. I am feeling neck, back, leg, and muscle pain. I went to a therapy doctor Monday who did x-rays and suggested treatment to correct my issues which will take a few months. I live in Michigan which is no fault state. I have full coverage and the person who hit me also has car insurance. Allstate has been handling my claim. I want to know if I can sue the driver who hit me? I am in some pain but more importantly I am not able to work my weekend job because it requires heavy lifting which I won't be able to do for the next few months
