I was involved in an accident were I lost control of my car and struck another vehicle. The driver of the second vehicle told the police I was trying to kill him so they arrested myself and him for aggressive driving (I realize this makes absolutely no sense). After requesting a jury trial because I do not trust small town judges in Georgia (long story speeding ticket related), the prosecutor added on reckless driving among some other small charges. I realize the extra charges (multiple of which have absolutely nothing to do with the story given to the officer) were a way of trying to scare me into pleading guilty, but isnt a reckless driving charge a more generalized version of the aggressive driving charge, considering I was obeying all traffic laws in so far as actually happened and to the knowledge of both the prosecutor and the police officers?
I'm 21 and I moved back in with my mother a year ago so I could go back to school. She's filing bankruptcy (chapter 7) and I know her stuff is at risk of getting sold, but what about mine? I have a computer, a car, and quite a few other things of value that I paid for with my own money.
Can I cash my 401k plan in while my company is in chapter 11 bankruptcy? Is the company 401k plan in jeopardy if the company files chapter 11 bankruptcy?

I wondered why when we say the Pledge of Allegiance we say
He lost a jury trial and looking at $ 50,000 in attorney fees and court costs. My lawyer says I can file an appeal , but he wants $ 10,000 ... says likely to be canceled and / or new evidence is very thin. But it would help to delay the payment of the $ 50,000 I owe the defense attorney. So should I? ? ? ? No I have $ 50,000 or $ 10,000 , so I do not know what to do . I think I can file Chapter 7 bankruptcy , but I really do not want to do that . Unless a last resort. HELP! ! !

Hi all, I was involved in a car accident two years ago , and were served with a lawsuit about a month ago asking for around $ 150k ( $ 200,000 Rageous out in pain and suffering ) over $ 100k policy limit . The insurance company hired a lawyer and he told me not to worry , the other person's injury is not as serious , and the case is not worth much , and approximately 95 % of these cases do not go to the track. I had hit the car in front of me because of my brake pedal getting stuck . Only about two days ago, I received a letter from my ins . company lawyer saying the trial date is set , which is about 6 months. I wonder there should be no statements before the trial date is set ? No discovery phase ? Does this mean that the other person and his lawyer declined an offer to settle? And are viewing full $ 250,000 ? ? ? ! ! I'm really scared now , and do not know what to do . Even if my insurance company pays the 100,000 , I have almost no money saved and I started working . Does having the date set tria mean you can not get a settlement or on the steps of the court ? My lawyer has contacted me or anything, and when I tried to call him today after receiving the letter, just goes to voicemail Allstate lawyer . Now that the case goes to trial, how likely and how much will I have to pay out of pocket considering the fact that Allstate 's attorney first contacted me , told me that based on medical expenses , the case almost not worth that much at all, definitely not for pain and suffering 200,000. I'm so scared , please advice !
