I was a passenger in a boating accident and was injured. Who is responsible for these injuries?

The driver of the boat could be responsible if they drove in an unreasonable and unsafe manner. The owner of the boat would be responsible if they weren’t the same as the driver, and if they’re driving commercially and doing something for somebody else, that person also may be liable.

Is my Florida landlord liable for injuries sustained on his/her property?

There’s no 100% liability. They have to be at fault, but if there was a defect in the property and a defect not known to the tenant or person on the property, the owner of the property can be liable. It depends. The tenant has different rights, you might say, than someone who just is on the property because if a tenant knew of a defect in the property … If you know of a hole, you step in a hole, the owner is not responsible. If you don’t know of the hole or if the hole is in an area where you disregard it if you’re going by, then the land holder is responsible or the tenant or the owner of the premises. It’s all fact dependent.

Is a misdiagnosis considered medical malpractice?

A misdiagnosis is not by itself medical malpractice because not every doctor is held to be perfect. But if the doctor, in his or her field, misdiagnoses you and doesn’t use appropriate diagnostic methods, and doesn’t abide by the appropriate standards of care of their specialty, and that’s what caused the misdiagnosis, then the doctor can be liable for the misdiagnosis and that misdiagnosis can be considered medical malpractice. That’s why you should go to a lawyer right away after you feel you’ve been misdiagnosed and if this misdiagnosis has caused you serious problems.

My family member died after being turned away by the emergency room. Is it still medical malpractice at the time?

The emergency room, like any other medical provider, must provide medical services within a proper standard of care. If someone goes to an emergency room and has a problem, and the problem is not properly investigated and because somebody is too busy, or they just don’t want to see the person, they tell the person to go away and they die or something else happens seriously to that person, that emergency room can be held liable for falling beneath the appropriate standard of care that should be utilized by emergency rooms.
