An Assault on the Independence of the JQC

As some of you may know, the State Judicial Qualifications Committee has been under fire recently in Georgia. Representative Johnnie Caldwell has spearheaded an attempt to dismantle the judicial watchdog agency. The ballot in the November election will include a proposed constitutional amendment to rid the State of the JQC.

What happens if you’re in a car wreck caused by an uninsured driver?

What happens if you’re in a car wreck caused by an uninsured driver?

Every driver has car insurance, right? Well, that’s not necessarily the case. Even though Georgia law requires it, many drivers on Georgia roads are knowingly driving without auto insurance coverage. Car accidents are scary and stressful enough, but a wreck caused by an uninsured or underinsured driver can be so much more stressful due to the fact that there may not be an insurer to cover your damages.
