I was originally injured in the first wreck but never thought it would be anything lasting, so I didn’t seek treatment because I only had liability insurance and they were saying the wreck was my fault even though I disagree and am waiting to go to court. I was then rear ended and side swiped and... Read more »
I am so sorry you are going through this. It can be difficult to distinguish injuries from accidents that are so close in time.

A Georgia attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. You filed your complaint 45 days ago.

If you know the county where the suit was filed, I suggest going to that clerk of court's website. Many of Georgia's counties have their dockets on-line. By inputting the parties' names and/or the civil action file number of your case, you can pull up the docket and see the latest.
Based on your question, it sounds as though the policy is a $50,000/$100,000, which is to say $50,000 per person and $100,000 per accident. If so, the $100,000 proceeds may be split between three people but in no case may any one claimant receive more than $50,000. It does not matter if the three...Read more »

I would call the court and explain that you just received the notice. The mail has been very slow lately. The hearing has likely been postponed or dismissed anyway but you should call and find out. Have the subpoena ready when you call.

A Georgia attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for five weeks. Since your own policy was cancelled, you would need to look to the policy of the other vehicle for coverage of property damage. Good luck
This is something on which a Georgia attorney could advise best. But your post remains open for two weeks. If you have an insurance policy that covers collision damage even where you are at fault, that is one way, and you are probably already aware of that if you have such coverage. The other way...Read more »
