Had car accident in November 2011 and other driver was at fault. Found out later she was intoxicated and settled in court.
The driver turned left in front of me when I had the green light and I T-boned her. She was injured and charged with the accident. My young daughter had a bad bump on the head and my son and I weren't injured. Just shaken up. The insurance adjuster pushed to settle quickly which I thought was fine since I needed the money quickly to buy a new car since mine was totaled. I found out over a year later that the other driver was intoxicated and was charged and settled in court. The insurance adjuster did not tell me this and I had no idea until 1.5 years later. Is there anything I can do?
No; this is an unfortunate lesson. Always speak with an attorney. There is a reason we offer free consultations. Sorry.

I got a dui in Georgia today and had 2 dui's over 15 years ago in Georgia. Can they be used against me?
I also had three for a felony conviction over 15 yrs ago in Texas which I served 11 months. Texas never used the dui's in Georgia against me back then, and consequently GA never used the ones in Texas against me either. My bond for this recent dui was rather small only $1200 so a bail bondsman got the release for me for 10%..I have maintained a clean record for the last 15 yrs and its been 17 yrs since my 2nd dui in GA. I have a total of 5 priors in two different states that were over 15 yrs ago I am sure things have changed since then with the laws so.... I am scared...

If my GA drivers license was not confiscated after receiving a DUI charge, do I still need to appeal within 10 business days?
My license wasn't taken, although I was charged and have a court date. I don't believe any 1205 form was issued to me. Who should I check with about this situation?
