Q. In a car accident where everyone denies fault, is it best to go through your insurance or hire a lawyer?
A: assuming you were not injured, the smartest and easiest thing to do is to go through your collision coverage with your insurance company. it will initially cost you the deductible. your insurance company will then pursue the other company for what it paid plus your deductible. if it collects, it will collect your deductible too. good luck.
Q. If I curse at a cop, does he have the right to put both his hands around my neck and choke me??
A: no but as a practical matter there isn't anything significant that you can or should try to do about it. cursing at cops or anyone who has authority over you is neither smart or productive.
Q. On probation and got a p.i charge and was on probation for intimadation and they put a warrent out for me what do i do?
A: get some bond money together and contact a criminal lawyer in your area.
Q. What is the liablility of a public electrical utility company for injury caused by its right-of-way contractors?
A: i am assuming by your question that an independent contractor working in the utility's right of way caused damage to someone or something. unless the utility company ha oversight responsibility ( usually by contract), it would probably not have liability. however it is a very fact sensitive issue. you should contact an ALA injury attorney. good luck. roll tide!
Q. How long does it take to settle a personal injury case?
A: if you do not have a a lawyer representing you, you need to contact a reputable one in your area. the local county bar assoc should have a referral list as well as the ala trial lawyers assoc.. every state has a statute of limitations on which to file suit. idk what it is in ala ( in indiana and ill it is 2 years from the accident date ) but you cannot go beyond that date without filing suit. assuming suit is filed, cases can take years to resolve but your lawyer will be the best guide. hope this helps. roll tide!

Q. I have proof my husband cheated does indiana have allimony or adualtry
A: indiana is a no fault divorce state. the fact of adultry, while wrong on many levels and in very poor judgment, may only be relevant if he was dissipating marital assets. there is no alimony in indiana. however there can be post(after)divorce maintenence for a period of time for you to acquire a work skill. you are certainly welcome to call one of domestic relations lawyers to ask other questions. there is no charge for phone calls. nicole keith in our firm is the one i would recommend. you can check her out on our website good luck
