Do “U” Have the Right of Way?

When you drive on roads like U.S I as much as most of us do, you need to master the art of the U-Turn. We all know how dangerous it can be, but it turns out it’s also not as simple as a lot of us thought it was. There’s a law. (There’s always a law.) However, as in many cases, there are exceptions to the law.  In this case, the law is Florida Statute 316.1515, and it says:  “The driver of any vehicle shall not turn the vehicle so as to proceed in the opposite direction upon any street […]

Who needs lawyers?

In today’s world, where everything seems to be available on the Internet, it can be tempting to go “DIY” when it comes to legal matters. But Abraham Lincoln was right when he said, “He who represents himself has a fool for a client.” And there is good evidence to prove his point. Martindale-Nolo Research, a joint venture by two of the world’s most respected legal brands, recently surveyed readers who’d gone through the personal injury claims process, and reached some illuminating conclusions. (Martindale-Hubbell is the 140-year-old publisher that is the “gold standard” for rating attorneys and law firms. Established in […]

Is Your Dog an Insurance Risk?

Your pooch might be a pussycat in your eyes, but your homeowner’s policy may not provide adequate coverage – and if he or she is on the “bad breeds” list used by most insurance companies, it might not cover you at all. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says nearly 4.5 million Americans are bitten every year, resulting in an estimated 885,000 injuries that require medical attention — and half of those bitten are children. According to the Insurance Information Institute and State Farm, dog bites accounted for more than 1/3 of all homeowner’s insurance liability claims paid out […]

Watch Your Step: How to Stay Safe on Foot

With the arrival of winter, more and more people will be taking advantage of Florida’s fabulous weather, and many of them will be hitting the streets and sidewalks to run or just take a leisurely walk. Unfortunately, pedestrians are one of the few groups of road users to experience an increase in fatalities in the United States in recent years. According to a report by the Governors Highway Safety Administration, more than 47,000 pedestrians died in traffic accidents nationwide during the ten year period studied, and pedestrians now comprise the largest proportion of traffic fatalities (15 percent) recorded in the […]

Hiring a Lawyer? 5 Questions to Ask

It’s always a good idea to ask friends for recommendations and check out the obvious websites. But to help you decide who to hire, ask these questions. Has the attorney ever represented the other party in your case? All good firms strive to avoid conflicts of interest and have a process for checking, but asking this question up front can save time and effort for both of you. Is the initial consultation free? This meeting is essentially a job interview, and as the prospective employer you should not be charged for it. On the other hand, don’t expect a full […]

Enjoy The Ride, But Stay Safe

As a triathlete, I’m an ardent advocate of bicycling. It’s good for your health, good for the environment, and tons of fun but there are risks. The good news is that those risks have been mitigated in recent years for younger riders, as more of them are wearing helmets and taking other precautions. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, deaths among bicyclists younger than 20 have declined 88 percent since 1975. The bad news is that deaths among bicyclists 20 and older have nearly tripled. In 2014, according to the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles, […]
