Legal Answers
10 Questions Answered
Q. I’m only one in will. Dad has survivor pension benefit no benef listed. Do kids of my two dead brothers share?
A: My condolences to you and your family.

The answer depends on what is written in the will. Particular attention should also be given to any clauses in the will regarding the rest, residue, and remaining property of the estate.

Consult an attorney to avoid conflicts, expensive mistakes, and potential lawsuits.
Q. Ive already probated a will and the judge has signed what papers do i need to take to the courts to have the deed changd
A: The answer to this question will depend on what is stated in the Probate Court Order and also the powers stated in the will. You may be required to take additional steps before transferring the title to real estate. If so, missing these steps would affect the title.

Consult an attorney who practices probate law and real estate law for a consultation.
Q. What is the Georgia state law or Fulton county law that states or implies that a driver is at fault for a lane merge.
A: Georgia has a statute in place that specifically addresses changing lanes, signaling turns, and turning movements. Georgia Code Section 40-6-123(b) states that, when changing lanes, a driver must give a continuous signal of intention to sufficiently alert other drivers. Failing to use a turn signal when trying to merge to the left or right constitutes a breach of this statute, and could be grounds for the driver to receive a traffic violation citation. If a driver causes an accident from failure to signal his/her intent to merge, that driver could be liable for damages. Other actions that could constitute an improper lane change include:

Failing to check mirrors for other vehicles

Failing to look in known blind spots

Merging when there isn’t enough space

Swooping in front of a vehicle and hitting the brakes

Driving on the line between lanes for an extended period

Ignoring traffic or weather conditions while changing lanes

Changing lanes in a Do Not Pass area, on a hill or corner

Speeding while making a lane change

Any of these unsafe practices could cause a collision between two or more vehicles in Atlanta. Merging or changing lanes incorrectly can make it impossible for other vehicles to maneuver out of the way in time to prevent a collision. Checking if the coast is clear, signaling intent to switch lanes, and merging slowly can give other drivers plenty of warning in advance. Improper lane changes can cause side-swipe accidents, rear-end collisions, and lane departure accidents.

Call the other driver’s insurance company as soon as you can to report the crash. Explain that the driver made an improper lane change, and for this resson you are seeking benefits for your damages. The insurance company will investigate the accident and either accept or deny your claim. If you get a claim denial, or the company won’t offer what you think your case is worth, you may be better off filing a personal injury lawsuit in the Atlanta civil court.
