In April 2012 I was involved In a small fender bender. An SUV swerved into my lane, without signaling, trying to get around a stopped vehicle turning left. Because of this I struck the rear of his vehicle at a low rate of speed. There was NO damage to the other SUV and minimal damage to my sedan (grille damage estimated at $275) we decided not to pursue. 6 months later I receive notice the other driver is going after my insurance company. I am found at fault and the other driver is paid out $21,000 for a whiplash claim (14 k medical 7 k payout) he did not claim any property damage. I have picture of both vehicles on the day of the accident. And need to gather more evidence to help my appeal. Any suggestions?
What is your basis for an appeal? Your insurance company does not have any motivation to pay more on a claim then they...
Can you expunge a " Not Guilty" finding by a judge in a OUI case in regards to your CORI report. It shows on my CORI as Not Guilty however I am in the medical field and think that this will indeed effect my chances of employment. Any legal advice would be greatly appreciated!
Typically if you have no other convictions ever, then you might be able to expunge this not guilty verdict. You really...

If you don't have a lawyer and can't afford one, ask the court for a lawyer to be assigned to your case. There is no...
I was convicted of a DUI in Virginia, and am a Massachusetts resident. MA is one of the few states that is not a member of the Interstate Drivers Compact, so in theory they don't' find out about the DUI (they have not yet). If I apply to a job based in Massachusetts with a MA employer, will the DUI show up on a background check?
I am not licensed in VA or MA, however, the DUI took place in VA and it does share information. I would expect MA to...
In the case, person was pulled over for speeding and upon the stop officer noticed slurring of speech. The field sobriety test was given in which the person failed and was arrested. At the police station a Breathalyzer was given in which the person blew a .205.
This person needs to consult with an experienced DUI defense attorney immediately. If you don't know of one, call an...
I am a Massachusetts resident, and received a DUI in Virginia. I was ordered to 5 days in prison, ASAP, fines, and to install an Ignition Interlock Device for 6 months in my vehicle. I've done the prison time, paid the fines, and am starting ASAP. However, I do not own a vehicle, and never drive. I live in Boston and take public transportation everywhere. My ASAP officer told the Virginia ASAP office this, and they said I had to do it anyways, even if it's a friend's car. This seems outrageous, especially considering Massachusetts doesn't make first time offenders install a IID. What can happen if I don't comply with this provision?
When you committed a crime in Virginia, you subjected yourself to the laws of that Commonwealth. Massachusetts cannot...
On Saturday night I had been driving home and fell asleep on the wheel and crashed into a tree. My car was totaled the police and ambulance came and had asked me what happened I told them I had worked a double shift and was tired and ended up falling asleep on the wheel. I had consumed alcohol but when they asked me if I had I said no and they seemed to have believed me. I was not asked to perform a breathalyzer or any sobriety test but was taken to the hospital on a stretcher and at the hospital they did a regular routine blood test. They said nothing about my blood test but on my hospital report it said right foot fracture, alcohol intoxication. The doctors also did not say anything to me about my BAC. I have received a citation in the mail for staying outside of marked lane and speeding but nothing for a DUI. I am wondering will the hospital give my blood test to the police and notify them I was drunk? It's been a week and I still haven't heard anything and am just a little nervous.
If the police went ahead and issued you a citation for the speeding and the marked lane violation then in it is...
