Are there alternatives to going to court in a Florida truck accident case?

Well first of all, if you’re injured, especially seriously injured, you should go to a lawyer as soon as possible. And this lawyer will negotiate with the insurance company on the other side. And it’s possible, very possible that there can be a settlement. If there’s a settlement, you don’t go to court. Also, if you file a lawsuit, there may be court proceedings in which you don’t have to participate in and the case can be settled. It can be going to court, trying a case. Just like in all cases, the vast majority of cases are settled or have a settlement offer. But it’s up to you and your lawyer whether to accept that offer. If you don’t, then a jury ultimately determines, not only fault, but damages.

Are dog bites covered by homeowner’s insurance in Florida?

This is not a one-size fits all answer. It used to be that most homeowner’s insurances cover dog bites. But now we have exclusions, and some people may have homeowner’s insurance and likely exclude any damages for dog bites; so the answer is it’s fact-dependent. If you have a dog-bite case, and a homeowner’s dog bit you, and they were at fault — and they usually at fault — and they don’t have insurance, you can still file a lawsuit against the homeowner. But, it’s best if they do have insurance, and that is in fact dependent upon the individual policy.

Are there time limits to sue for injuries in a Florida medical malpractice case?

On the vast majority of cases, it’s two years. If there’s fraudulent concealment, it could be more. There can be some instances in which a person has more than two years. But, probably 98% of the time, it’s two years after a person knew or should have known that they were injured due to substandard medical care.

Are there parties other than the at-fault driver against whom I can take legal action against in a Florida auto accident case?

Of course the owner of the car is also responsible for the driver of the car if they’re different people. Also, if they’re doing an errand or on the job the company they’re working for is also potentially responsible.

Can Florida animal owners be held liable if their pets bite?

Yes, they can. There usually is insurance coverage for this, not always, on our homeowner’s insurance, but some homeowner’s insurances have exclusions. But in Florida, a pet owner is responsible for their animal, and if a pet bites, especially if unprovoked, then the animal owner can be held liable.

Can I recover more than workers’ compensation benefits in Florida if I am injured on a construction site?

Yes, not always. It depends upon the facts of the case. Everything depends on the facts. But there might be other contractors on the construction site that are available as defendants if they were negligent, the landholder may be available as a defendant if he fell through a roof. The contractor, or previous contractor, or architecture engineer may be responsible for your injuries. Passers by may be responsible for your injuries. There are many people potentially responsible for your injuries on a construction site, but it always fact dependent.

Can I recover from a Florida store for injuries sustained when I slipped on spilled liquid and fell?

You can recover, but will you recover? That’s fact dependent. Most stores have videos, but stores are not responsible if there was a spill and someone comes along right behind the spill. They’re responsible if they do something they should not have done, or if they fail to do something they should’ve done, if they fail to have an appropriate designation of aisles or other areas, so it is possible that you can recover if you slip and fell in a subject matter that shouldn’t have been on the floor of a store. There’s no guarantees, and it is always fact dependent.

Can I receive damages for pain and suffering in a Florida medical malpractice case?

Pain and suffering is a very, very important element of damage in any malpractice case, in any case in Florida in which you sue for negligence. Malpractice is nothing more than negligent medical care. Medical care beneath an appropriate standard of care. And of course you must be physically or mentally injured in order to have pain and suffering damages. But absolutely, pain and suffering damages are an important key element of any medical malpractice claim.
