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. While In Arkansas in 2012 I paid my fine, hired a lawyer, and completed the ankle bracelet monitoring sentence.

This is part of the process I must complete to try to get my driver's license back.

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....
