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 injured to maintain an action and recover

What Do You Do If You
Are In A Motor Cycle Accident?
If a motor cycle accident occurs, state law requires that certain procedures
must be followed. No matter who was at fault in a two motor cycle accident, both
parties must stop at the scene. Make sure to exchange names and addresses and
insurance company information. You should also call the police.
Do I Need Money for
Costs To Represent My Case?
Many attorneys who handle
cases on a contingency fee basis or by charging an hourly rate for their
services require their clients to pay the expenses or costs of bringing the
claim. However, we recognize that many people are unable to bear the costs of
bringing a claim.
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.
Otherwise, we need to look at the definition of negligence under the law.
What Is A Valid Slip N
The area of law dealing with slip and fall accidents is known as "premises
liability." This refers to the responsibility held by the person or company who
owns, maintains, or is otherwise in control of property. Private homes,
government buildings, and businesses such as malls, grocery stores, hardware
stores, discounts department stores, etc. are all "premises" where liability can
arise from an accident.
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.
What is Uninsured
Uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance is a type of insurance you can
carry to protect yourself if an uninsured or underinsured driver causes injury
to you. In Florida, although each driver is required to carry Personal Injury
Protection insurance and Property Damage Liability insurance, there is no law
that requires drivers to carry coverage for injuries they might cause. Read More...
