2020-10-27T17:39:03+00:00October 26th, 2020|Categories: Auto Accident, Personal Injury|Tags: , , , , , |

Ideally (and legally), all vehicles on our roads should have valid auto insurance policies and there are plenty of laws to that respect even in Florida. However, there is always a disconnect between what the law states and what actually happens. For instance, in Florida, 1 in every 4 drivers are uninsured, which is not only against state law, but also an added risk to victims of accidents involving these drivers.  Indeed, if you get caught up in an accident involving an uninsured driver in Florida, your legal chances of getting compensation are very limited. It is thus advisable to work with a credible uninsured motorist accident attorney to increase your chances of successful litigation.    Compensation for Medical Expenses For Injuries Caused By Uninsured Drivers If you suffer an injury from the [...]

Car accidents, even minor ones, can be very unnerving. When caught up in one, it's very hard to be calm, even if you didn't sustain any serious injuries. The damages to your vehicle, and the thoughts of all the processes you will have to go through to obtain compensation, can drive you crazy. And that's not even the worst of it….. The chaos and tension that encompass a typical accident scene may also affect the collation of evidence and consequently the final police report. Really, you can't expect the cops to get everything right when the involved parties can't agree who is at fault and some of the witnesses are too shook to give accurate attestations. And while an inconsistent, or incomplete police report won't really matter in court, insurance companies may use [...]

A common consensus amongst road safety experts is that the increasing proliferation of smart devices among drivers is mostly distractive and affects safe driving. Funny enough, all the problems caused by these smart devices can also be solved by other smarter devices.    The Extent of The Tech-Fueled Distracted Driving Problem  Distracted driving is an increasingly common cause of accidents on American highways which has resulted in numerous deaths and injuries over the recent past. Indeed, if you go to any highway - major or minor - across the country, and look closely at the traffic, you will note one or two drivers either talking over their phone, texting, or listening to music or podcasts over their car's 'infotainment' system, all while driving.  The use of navigation systems, like Google Maps and GPS [...]

Social media has quickly become the melting pot of all connections and communications. For many of us, hardly a day passes without posting photos, writing comments, or simply scrolling through social media.  However, all these seemingly harmless activities can greatly hurt your pending personal injury lawsuit case.

The court or insurance agency may even deny your claim entirely depending on your postings. Considering this, it is only logical to take a social media break until you resolve your case. You should also ask your close friends, family and confidants not to post anything relating to the accident or you. The defendant’s attorney can be cunning and use any social media [...]

Although there is a common perception that a DUI conviction is proof of fault in the event of an accident, this is not necessarily the case. As a matter of fact, negligence on the part of a driver must be proved beyond reasonable doubt in order for them to be held liable by law.  Unsurprisingly, a driver can be slapped with a DUI conviction for an accident that was caused by someone else. The role of a car accident attorney, therefore, is to carefully scrutinize the facts to determine who is at fault. How is Liability for a Car Accident Determined?
