We where hit by a drunk driver in june.
my husband was hit by a drunk driver (who was arrested and charged). we turned in our health insurance info when we took him to the hospital and he was fine. he had some soreness and a small cut on his arm for the glass. before the health insurance company paid the bill was $24,000 and some change. after they paid the hospital wants a $9,000 and some change. what kind of settlement should we expect? my husband was in a company truck and they have already settled up. we had to wait for all the bills to come.
We need far more information. For example why such a large bill for such minor injuries? You really should retain a...
Can someone be charged with public intoxication if they were not given a sobriety test or a breathalyzer?
Long story short, my brother in law ( who is 20) got drunk and got into a fight at a bar and got thrown out. He was arrested and spent 3 days in jail before being bailed out ( not by me because I have more sense than that.) They are charging him with. Public intoxication, Resisting an officer, Re-entering a premises after it was forbidden, disturbing the peace, and public intimidation. He came by today and said he is suing the parish because he was never given a sobriety test or a breathalyzer ( although he does admit to drinking, and he is underage) I laughed. But still wonder if he can be charged with the public intoxication etc?
He's suing the parish? Yeah right. Talk is cheap. No attorney would touch that lawsuit since it has no merit. Have...

In the case of a toxilizer refusal in the state of Louisiana, how do I delay the suspension and negate/postpone DMV decision?
I know other defendants who have had MULTIPLE DUI's and have not blown and all of which have never had an interlock device installed. I overheard someone talk about a motion that was filed that basically delayed the decision of the DMV and once the hearing was granted, the suspension period was basically over. Any help in the matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
The license suspension is a civil matter, whereas the DUI/DWI is criminal. There are strict time limits that pertain to...
