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. (inocent untill proven guilty) I have a hard time beliving that Tennesse would even share this information since they are one of the states that share nothing. my attorney knows less than me in the regards to information shareing and I can find no way to find out if my passport will be flaged. What insite can you give and if possible is there some place I can check other than public recors if this has been noted?
Canada will find out about the DUI and refusal fro two sources. First, the pending charge will show up on the NCIC...
Is possible to be convicted of a DUI and be unaware of it?
Today I received a letter from the Dept of Homeland Security that my license had be revoked due to a DUI conviction in Feb of 2012 and that I could reapply for my license on April 17, 2013. I have never been arrested for a DUI or ticketed for the same. I have retained insurance, renewed my registration and license and obtained a professional healthcare license, and passed background checks for work in a ER past that date. I was just accepted to medical school starting in August and am afraid my status with them will be negatively affected by this. Can I be convicted with a DUI without ever being stopped for an alcohol related issue or ever receiving notification of said offense?
No. This sounds like a mistake. You should call the phone number listed on the letter you received and explain you...
Possible DUI but no indication of blood testing from medical records, case to be presented to grand jury
I had a vehicle accident with property damage. There was a beer can in the vehicle at the time of the accident and a loaded gun (I have a carry permit). I was flown to a trauma center. No records from the hospital show any BAC testing. I have not been arrested, and the officer who worked the accident is presenting this to a grand jury. My friends say that I was sober when I left their home just 20 minutes before the accident. I do have a history of passing out, but this has not ever been investigated medically. 1.) Is it typical for BAC blood testing to occur without it showing up on a patient's medical records? Also, 2.) If there is sufficient evidence of DUI, why hasn't the officer just arrested me instead of going to the grand jury?
The reason why there have been no charges is the state is gathering evidence, and presenting it to the grand jury. The...
I have been accused of a first. How can I get a pre-trial diversion? offense DUI
I had not consumed alcohol, but failed the field test. I passed the breath test given at the jail, but found out two Months later I failed the blood sample. I had taken a medication called Hydroxyzine and found out that it is metabolized in the liver and can show up as alcohol in the blood. This is in my medical records, but the D.A. told me I cannot present that in court without an expert witness. What is my alternative?
DUI is not an offense eligible for Diversion in TN. You need to hire a DUI attorney in your area and stop talking to...
I have been charged with a DUI, in Tennessee and I was not operating the vehicle, nor were the keys in the ignition.
I was sleeping, and was woken by the arresting officer. I did not take a breathilizer because I was not operating the vehicle when arrested, not was I pulled over with the vehicle motion. I was forced to give blood a blood sample. That is the most likely outcome with a good defense attorney ? My career is on the line, and operating a company car is required. I must beat this case for possible reinstatement with my current employer, as I have been terminated with out going to court/trial yet.
The State's theory is that you were in physical control of the vehicle and you can be convicted of DUI without actually...
