In TN how can my insurance company represent the drunk that hit me instead of paying my medical bills?
I was hit by a drunk driver. He had no insurance at all and I have full coverage including uninsured motorist with higher than normal limit. I sustained an injury to my neck that is impeading on my spinal cord. My insurance company said I have to except the $8,000.00 they offer me or sue them. I already had 32K in medical bills and have not had surgery yet. So I had to get a lawyer and sue. Now they are representing the drunk that hit me and I am not allowed to even mention in the court room it is an insurance case. How can this be?

Pending DUI anf Failure to consent that is going to be droped by the DA for lack of evidence
I have a lawyer working on the case, it was a railroad job and they have no evidence and the DA is going to drop the charges on my court date next month. How can canada even know as I was only arrested on a charge.

I got charged with dui in tennessee but I passed the breathalyzer can I appeal
On the evening in question I was pulled over for no seatbelt. I had open containers in the backseat. I was taken to jail, where I passed a breathalyzer with a .06 BAC. A marijuana cigarette paper, was found in my vehicle. No other drugs or paraphernalia was found. I was charged with a DWI for driving under the influence of marijuana. I was never drug tested, and no blood was taken. I was found guilty because I did not come to court while I was incarcerated in another county.

DUI attorney
I got stopped at the hospital where I lived in May, went into the hospital to see about a severely abcessed tooth. It was early morning and I had been drinking. I drove over 14 miles to the hospital when a cop at the hospital followed me inside and engaged me. He then asked me to take the normal DUI tests which I did and failed. I never got seen at the hospital. I was taken to jail and sent to a cell. I was then brought to an adjacent cell where I stupidly gave blood. The was on Mothers day. The next day I was bailed out and went home. This case has yet to be determined. Here is the kicker on which I think I can beat it on. I was not arraigned for 3 weeks from my arrest date because the judge had hip surgery. From my understanding I still have to be arraigned in a timely manner (48-72 hour

My 19 year old charged with possession and consumption in his college dorm.
My 19 year old son was suspected of consuming alcohol in his dorm room. Police were called and he was charged with underage possession and consumption. No open containers were found (He had a mixed drink made in a jug that they made him pour out) and he was NOT given a Breathalyzer. They told him to "sleep it off." They wrote him a ticket, he appeared, and a court date was set for Nov. 24th. Do we need to attain a lawyer?
Yes you should get a lawyer if you want to be sure to keep your son's record clean at least through this incident.
