What To Do If You’re Injured By Debris Falling Off Another Vehicle While Driving

Let’s discuss what to do if you’re injured by debris coming from another vehicle while you’re driving down the road. A lot of times, you may be following a truck or a pickup truck and they’re carrying different things in the back, whether it be paint cans, ladders, or lumber for example, and they may hit a bump and it might fly off their truck and hit your vehicle causing you injuries. If this happens, they are negligent for not properly securing that item down in the back of their truck, and you can go after their insurance for the […]

Should you report your car accident to your insurance company

Should You Report Your Car Accident To Your Own Insurance Company?

Today I’d like to discuss reporting a car accident to your own insurance company. A lot of people are afraid to do so, especially if it’s a minor accident because they are concerned their insurance premiums may go up. However, your insurance policy typically will say that you have an obligation to report any accident within a reasonable amount of time, or your insurance company may not have the obligation to cover you for the accident. It’s important to read your policy, but typically you do need to notify your insurance company within a reasonable amount of time about the […]

Can You Pursue A Claim If Your Loved One Died In An Accident

Can You Pursue A Claim If Your Loved One Died In An Accident?

Today I’d like to discuss wrongful death actions in Florida. Florida has a specific statute that deals with wrongful death claims. That statute specifies who are proper claimants when it comes to the wrongful death of a loved one. Florida’s law basically says that a personal representative gets appointed to represent the estate of the deceased individual but these certain categories of claimants are the ones who could potentially make the claim through the estate in order to be compensated for the pain & suffering that they had to go through watching their loved one pass away in an accident.

How Installing A Dash Cam May Impact Your Accident Case

How Installing a Dash Cam May Impact Your Accident Case

Today, I’d like to discuss dash cams and how having a dash cam installed in your car can either help or hurt your case if you’re involved in an automobile accident. Dash cams are readily available now and relatively inexpensive to install on your dash. They capture the scene in front of your vehicle as you’re driving down the road. If you’re involved in an accident it can be helpful as it may show who is at fault for the accident. It may also show if someone cuts you off or if there’s a hit and run it could potentially […]

who is responsible for damages in an accident involving a work vehicle

Who is responsible for damages in an accident involving a work vehicle?

What happens if you’re involved in an accident with someone driving a work vehicle? Typically, if somebody is driving a work vehicle that is owned by their employer, their employer will be equally responsible as they are for the damages caused by the accident. Basically, if somebody owns a vehicle in Florida they are as responsible as the driver that caused the accident. So if both the driver, the owner of the vehicle, or the employer, in this case, have insurance you can go after both insurance policies to cover you for the damages. Also, a lot of times people […]

Can I Still Make A Claim If I Wasn't Wearing A Seatbelt At The Time Of An Auto Accident

Can I Still Make An Injury Claim If I Wasn’t Wearing A Seatbelt At The Time Of An Auto Accident?

Here in Florida, it’s a law that you must wear a seatbelt when operating your car. If you do not wear your seatbelt you could be in violation and get a ticket for doing that. However more importantly if you don’t wear your seatbelt and you get into an accident and you are injured, it could be used against you to show that you are partially at fault for causing your injuries and it could reduce the damages that you collect from the at-fault party for your injuries. So if you’re driving a vehicle, you’re not wearing a seatbelt, and […]

Am I Liable If My Dog Injures Someone Else

Am I Liable If My Dog Injures Someone Else?

Today I’d like to discuss dog bites in Florida. In Florida, if someone owns a dog and that dog bites another individual, the owner is strictly liable for any damages that the dog causes. So basically, there is no excuse. If you own a dog and that dog bites somebody, then you will be responsible for the most part. Typically your homeowner’s insurance will cover you in that situation, but a lot of homeowner’s insurance doesn’t cover dog bites, or sometimes there is a lower limit of liability for dog bites. So be careful, take a look at your policy, […]

Can I Still Make An Injury Claim If I Signed A Liability Waiver?

Can I Still Make An Injury Claim If I Signed A Liability Waiver?

Today I’d like to discuss signing waivers of liability here in Florida. A lot of times if you go to participate in an activity, whether it’s a sporting event, scuba diving, sky diving, anything that may be dangerous, or even if you’re volunteering somewhere a lot of times you’ll be asked to sign a waiver of liability whether or not these waivers are valid if you do get injured while participating in that activity. In Florida typically they are upheld, but there are exceptions. The waivers need to be unambiguous and it needs to be very clear what you are […]

Who Is Liable In A Boating Accident

Who Is Liable In A Boating Accident?

Today, I’d like to touch on boating accidents. Here in Florida, the weather is typically great, especially in the summertime, and people go boating. Many of us go out to the sandbar or we go fishing, we may even know other people that have boats, and we might even go out with our friends. It’s important to know that there are special laws when it comes to boating accidents and not every lawyer is familiar with those boating laws. It’s very important that if you do get into an accident while on someone’s boat that you consult with an attorney […]
