Frequently Asked Questions

The Answers to Some of Your Pressing Questions
  • What is wrongful death?

    Under Florida Law, when the death of a person is caused by the wrongful act, or negligence of any person, including those occurring on navigable waters, and the event would have entitled the person killed to hire a wrongful death attorney to maintain an action and recover damages if death had not ensued, the negligent person, persons or corporation may be liable for damages as specified in the Florida Wrongful Death Act. The wrongful death lawyers at Kinney, Fernandez, and Boire can help.

  • What About Injuries On the Job?

    There are several types of benefits under workers compensation. These are medical benefits, temporary disability benefits, retraining benefits, permanent disability and death benefits. Medical benefits provide 100% payment of all reasonable medical charges caused by an on the job injury or occupational disease. With this, your employer has the right to direct you to an initial treating doctor. If your employer does not direct you to a particular doctor, then you have the right to select your own doctor. Once you have a treating doctor, you cannot change doctors without either a referral from your treating doctor, approval from your insurance company, or approval from the industrial commission. Treatment obtained outside of these rules may result in you having to pay the bill. Been injured on the job, call the worker's compensation lawyers at Kinney, Fernandez, and Boire.

  • What is Negligence?

    Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care, that is, when you do something that a reasonably careful person wouldn't do under the circumstances. Reasonable care on the part of a professional, like a doctor or lawyer, is recognized as acceptable if it follows the standards of practice in that profession. If you or a loved one has sustained personal injury from the negligence actions of another, call the attorneys at Kinney, Fernandez, and Boire.

  • What is 'PIP' Insurance?

    "PIP" stands for Personal Injury Protection insurance. Florida law requires each owner of a motor vehicle to carry "PIP" or Personal Injury Protection insurance on their car as a condition of having a valid registration. The minimum coverage that must be carried to comply with the law is $10,000 of Personal Injury Protection and $10,000 of property damage liability. Personal Injury Protection insurance will pay you a portion of your lost wages and medical bills if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, regardless of who caused the accident. That is why this law is sometimes referred to as the no fault law.

    Your insurance company must also pay 80% of your reasonable and necessary medical bills incurred as a result of a motor vehicle accident. The law also provides that you may recover 60% of your lost wages. The medical benefits cover all reasonable expenses for necessary medical, surgical, x-ray, dental and rehabilitative services, including prosthetic devices. Your insurance company will also pay for necessary ambulance, hospital and nursing services. If a death results from the accident, the personal injury protection insurer may have to pay a death benefit under this policy.

    Florida law allows individuals to carry a deductible on their personal injury protection coverage. If you elected such a deductible, you should know that the effect of that is that you are "self-insured" for the amount of your deductible. In other words, if you have personal injury protection insurance with a $2,000 deductible, you have agreed to pay the first $2,000 of your lost wages and medical bills if you are in an accident. This is true even if the accident is totally the fault of someone else.

    When you have been involved in an automobile related accident and it is the result of someone else's negligence, you may seek damages for bills and expenses that are not covered under Personal Injury Protection Insurance. This may include the cost of your deductible, medical expenses and lost wages not covered by Personal Injury Protection Insurance, and pain and suffering. Maximizing your benefits is something that Kinney, Fernandez & Boire can help you achieve. We will help to make sure medical bills and lost wages are paid in such a way to obtain payment of your PIP benefits in the most efficient manner, so as to make the best use of these benefits that are available to you. For example, you would not want your lost wages being applied toward your deductible. Instead, you would be better off asking that your lost wages be placed in line for payment after the deductible has been met. Maximizing your benefits can also incorporate health insurance benefits that may be available to you.

    Overall, we will work to ensure that whatever benefits are available to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and any other expenses, are used in the best manner possible in order to keep out-of-pocket expenses to a minimum. This will position your case in the best way when it comes time to initiate settlement negotiations with the insurance company for the at-fault party. Our clients are always in a better position when medical expenses and lost wages have been addressed properly during the time leading up to negotiations. This can sometimes take months, depending on the type of injury and the response you have to whatever forms of treatment you need. Regardless, we want to position your case in such a way as to be able to provide you with as much a recovery as we can, as opposed to large portions of a recovery going to pay bills that have been incurred. In other words, we believe it is our responsibility to try to put as much money obtained in your case in your pocket, for future needs, retraining, pain and suffering etc., as opposed to having to use much of the money to pay your outstanding bills.

    Using your PIP insurance, and any other benefits that may be available to you, while you are treating and waiting to reach what is called "Maximum Medical Improvement" is vital to keeping a "check" on your expenses and situating your case in the best way to achieve a satisfactory and fair settlement a the end. We do understand that victims of negligence that have suffered personal injury are often not simply concerned with money. Rather, they are concerned about their physical and mental well-being, being able to continue the work and personal activities they could before getting injured, the effects an injury has on their family, and many other very personal and emotional challenges. However, financial concerns will always be a part of recovering from a traumatic injury and we can help so, hopefully, you have a little less to worry about.

  • What About Nursing Home Residents Rights?

    Nothing is scarier than the prospect of placing a loved one in a nursing home or feeling that a loved one is being mistreated in a nursing home. Florida statutes guarantee special rights to all nursing home residents. These rights include the right to civil and religious liberties and the right of independent personal decisions. The law also requires the staff of any facility to give assistance to the residents in helping them exercise their rights in the fullest possible way. Perhaps the most important right nursing home residents have is the right to receive adequate and appropriate health care and protective and support services including social services and mental health services.

    Nursing home residents and their families have many other rights that are specifically set forth in the Florida statutes including the right to be treated courteously, fairly and with the fullest measure of dignity possible. Call the nursing home abuse & neglect lawyers at Kinney, Fernandez, and Boire.

In these types of cases, we often have legal grounds which we can use to seek payment of damages for our clients. Call the product liability lawyers at Kinney, Fernandez, and Boire.

  • What if My Child Is Injured?

    Our children are innocent and vulnerable, and we often take it for granted that they will be safe when they are at the local playground or amusement park.

Our experienced playground accident attorneys will aggressively pursue compensation for you in behalf of your injured child.

    If you, your child or someone you love has had a playground accident (for example, a climbing wall, swing, slide, monkey bars or merry-go-round accident) or a swimming pool accident or injury (for example, contracting Legionnaires' disease, drowning or a diving board accident), you may be able to receive compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering and loss of earnings.
