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 […]

What To Do If You're Involved In An Uber Accident

What To Do If You’re Involved In An Uber Accident

Today I’d like to touch on what happens if you’re in an Uber and get into a car accident. If the Uber driver is on the clock, they are using the app, and you are a paying customer, then Uber does provide insurance for any accidents that may occur while they are driving. So, if the driver of the Uber is responsible for the accident and is at fault there is bodily injury coverage that you can go against. There is also uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage on the Uber policy as well if again you are a paying customer […]

The Most Important Optional Insurance Coverage To Carry In Florida

The Most Important Optional Insurance Coverage To Carry In Florida.

Today, I’d like to discuss uninsured or underinsured motorist’s coverage here in Florida. Last week I touched on a hit & run vehicle and what type of coverages you would need on your own policy in order to go after damages you sustained from a vehicle that is no longer available, but uninsured motorist coverage is even more important here in Florida not just because of a hit & run vehicle but because in Florida drivers are not required to carry liability coverage at all. They are required to carry PIP insurance to cover their injuries and they are required […]

Can I Make A Claim If I’m Involved In A Hit & Run Accident In Florida?

Today, I’d like to discuss hit & run accidents here in Florida. A lot of times people are hit while driving their vehicle, the other car takes off, they can’t find that vehicle, they may be injured, and fear they cannot make a claim. Well, first of all, Florida is a no-fault state so you do have PIP insurance which will pay for the first $10,000 of your medical bills. Sometimes there is additional coverage on your policy which is called Medical Payments Coverage which will pay for more medical coverage for your injuries as well. There is also optional […]

New Bicycle Safety Law in Florida

New Bicycle Safety Law in Florida

Today, I’d like to discuss the new bicycle safety law that was recently passed here in Florida. This law added some things to the bicycle law and it also clarified some things from the prior law so that drivers and bicyclists know how to share the road better. Basically, if riding on a two-lane road a bicyclist should ride as far to the right side as what is safe assuming that the lane is wide enough for a vehicle to pass you and still give you three feet without crossing the centerline. If the road is too narrow for that […]

How to Safely Drive After A Hurricane

Today, let’s discuss a topic a lot of us don’t want to talk about. It’s summer here in Florida and that mean’s it’s hurricane season. Hurricanes unfortunately are going to be threatening us. Hopefully none of them hit us, but we have to be prepared if they do. I want to talk about driving after a storm. After a storm the best thing obviously is to stay home. There is going to be down power lines, down trees, and limbs. It’s going to be dangerous. There might be some flooding, but if you do go out you need to be […]
