Do I have a case in Florida if the property owner’s dog bit me at a home where I was doing work?

Yes, you do have a case. There are many things, and it is always fact dependent, about whether you have a good case or not such a good case. If you incited the dog, that’s not such a good case, but the property owner has insurance or should have insurance if his or her dog bit you. If they don’t have insurance, their assets can be attached if you win a lawsuit against the property owner. It is basically fact dependent, dependent upon the circumstances, dependent upon the insurance available, dependent upon the assets the potential defendant has, dependent upon your injuries. You need to see a lawyer as soon as possible.

Do I need to contact my insurance company about my Florida car accident?

Most insurance companies have a cooperation clause and require that you tell them promptly, it doesn’t have to be on the way to the emergency room, but you have to contact them within a reasonable period of time to tell them about the accident.

Does a bad outcome from a doctor mean that medical malpractice has occurred?

Quick answer is no, but if you have a bad outcome from a medical procedure, then, you know you had it as a result of the medical procedure. If this doctor fell beneath the standard of care and it wasn’t just the normal progress of a disease that would have happened anyway, you better go to a lawyer right away because you have two years after you knew or should have known that something amiss was occurring. Just a bad result doesn’t mean there’s malpractice because not every case can be cured 100%. Not every case can be cured at all. An experienced lawyer will help guide you through this.

Do I have to give a recorded statement to the insurance company in a Florida auto accident case?

No. Never give a statement to somebody who may be adverse to you. Now, if it’s your insurance company that’s asking for a statement, your policy may require you under the cooperation clause to give a statement, but the best thing to do is to call your lawyer or call a lawyer who does accident cases to protect your rights.

Do I have to give a recorded statement to the insurance company in a Florida Construction accident case?

Never do it. The good thing is if somebody asks you to give a statement, then somebody is potentially responsible. This is your signal to call a lawyer immediately because that person is representing a company that thinks they may have responsibility. So not only don’t you have to do it, you should never do it.

Does the insurance company have access to my hospital records if I do not give them consent?

Nobody should have access to your hospital records without consent, so I would hope that they do not. There’s something in federal law called the HIPAA law, which prohibits anybody that you do not give consent to have your medical records. So, certainly don’t give them the right to get your medical records. Go to a lawyer first. In fact, go to a lawyer as quickly as possible after an accident.

Do I need an attorney for my Florida auto accident case if the insurance company seems to be cooperating?

Of course you do. The insurance company is always consistent in trying to protect their own interests and give you the least compensation that they can possibly give you. That’s why you need a lawyer to represent you against the insurance company, to represent your interests.

How long will it take to get money in my Florida auto accident case?

There’s no easy answer. It can take a long time or relatively short time. Depends on the severity of your injuries. It depends on the insurance that the parties have. It depends on whether or not you as the patient or victim is getting better or not getting better and whether you have to file a lawsuit or not. So it could take up to a few years.

How long do I have to file a Florida slip and fall case?

Slip and fall cases is a general negligence case in Florida. You get four years after the accident occurred, not when you knew you were hurt, but four years after the accident occurred. If you don’t settle your case or file your case within four years you’re forever barred.
