Asked in Traffic Tickets and Car Accidents for Georgia

Q: My cousin was involved in an accident approximately 6 years ago in someone's vehicle. Other party involved in

accident had insurance through Geico. Geico obtained a judgement and had license suspended. She was incarcerated (unrelated) for two years. Had no way to pay Geico. Fast forward several years pulled over and fined for driving on suspended license, no insurance.

Since then I researched, she filed Chapter 7 then took discharge to DMV paid small fee and they were reinstated. Court date is coming up and attorney she hired has since lost license, etc. Big mess. Should we try to hire another attorney? Could she lose her license again? Sounds bad I know but she really needs a break and to get this cleared up completely. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A: Get another attorney. The old attorney breached the contract so you should get some money back. Don't move without an attorney But especially considering her criminal history you never want to chance it. I pray this helps.
