Auto Accident

 

I have represented thousands of people and families in auto accident cases resulting in injury and death in Florida and other States. The topic of auto accidents and the law that controls this area of law cannot be comprehensively addressed in one web page.

Dog Bite

 

In 2012, Florida ranked eighth in the nation for dog bite insurance payout claims, which is a reflection of the overall negligence involved in dog ownership throughout the country.

Injuries to Visitors and Tourists

 

Orlando is the vacation capital of the world, and many times visitors to our area are involved in auto accidents, or are otherwise involved in situations resulting in injury or death.

Slip and Fall

 

Most people have a friend or relative who has fallen, or who have fallen themselves. These surprising slip and fall accidents are all too prevalent in the Orlando, Florida area, and must be countered by a professional attorney who will ensure that the negligent party is not only held responsible, but also fixes the issue to ensure another person is not hurt in the same way.

Automotive Diminished Value Claims

 

It means that your car is worth less because it was in an accident. Most cars suffer a 10% to 50% loss in market value even after being repaired. Would you pay top dollar for a car that had been in an accident?

Helpful Insurance Information

 

If you have a dispute with your own insurance company, a lawyer can represent you and bring a claim against your insurance company. If you prevail on a claim against an insurance company, under Florida law your insurance company is obligated to pay your attorney fees.

Medical Malpractice

 

This is one of the most challenging areas of personal injury, and one of the most rewarding. Doctors protect themselves with limiting patient/family access to in person meetings and using confusing medical jargon to defend doctor’s actions.

Spine Injury

 

Because of the nature of spine injury accidents, the costs and expenses associated with an individual sufferer’s care are immense. According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, the average yearly expenses can range from $228,566 to $775,567 within the first year the injury occurs.

Automotive Loss of Use Claims

 

The owner of a vehicle damaged by another is entitled to recover loss of use damages under Florida law. These damages can be substantial, and the owner is entitled to recover damages whether or not they rent substitute vehicle. See, Meakin v. Dreier, 209 So.2d 252 (Fla. 2nd DCA 1968).

Hospital Lien

 

I designed this page to provide helpful information to costumers, patients, and attorneys regarding hospital liens. Unlike other states, Florida’s hospital liens are created by special acts and local ordinances in select counties so there is no state-wide regulation.

Motorcycle Accident

 

Based on the total number of registered vehicles in the United States, motorcycle operators and their passengers’ fatality rates are nearly six times that of passenger vehicles. Florida continues to remain among the top states for motorcycle accidents, injuries and deaths each year.

Truck Accident

 

According to the Transportation Research Institute, there are roughly 500,000 truck accidents every year in the United States, resulting in approximately 130,000 injuries in that same time frame. Unfortunately, due to the large scale of these commercial truck and trailer vehicles, fatalities are often the result.

Bicycle Accident

 

We have handled many cases involving death and serious injury to bicyclist and pedestrians in the twenty years of practice in this field. Why are there so many accidents in Florida, and what should you do if you are in an accident?

Injuries to Children

 

Over the years I have had the honor of representing the parents of a child injured or killed in an accident. Without a doubt, this is the most sensitive area for any practicing lawyer.

Personal Injury

 

Personal Injury is an enormous category of tort law in which an injured person seeks to recover from the responsible party or parties. The most common type of injuries which lead to compensation are automobile accidents, slip and falls, injuries from defective products, and medical malpractice.

Wrongful Death

 

In Florida, wrongful death cases are strictly controlled by its state statute which sets forth the definition of “survivors” which explains who may recover damages and what damages may be recovered. (See Florida Statute 768.16 to 768.26, known as “Florida’s Wrongful Death Act.”)
