Can I sue a school for my child’s injury?

When your children are in the care of a school, you expect them to be safe and put all of your trust into the institution to prevent them from harm. However, it is surprisingly common for children to slip and fall while at school, and injure themselves, often seriously. When this happens, a parent may feel the need to take legal action against the school and make a claim for damages.

Florida's Escambia County settles car accident claim for $90,000

Car accidents make the headlines in Florida all the time. It seems that every time you look at the media, it is filled with stories of people suffering horrific injuries in car crashes. While news reports about accidents and their immediate aftermath are easy to find, reports about failed or successful victim compensation efforts are not so easy to find. That is why a recent story out of Escambia County stands out.

I was hurt in a hotel. Who is responsible for my accident?

When you check into a Florida hotel, you likely expect safety, security and a good night's sleep. However, some hotel guests find that they do not enjoy their stay, but rather, experience the negative consequences of negligent security or dangerous property conditions. If you were hurt while staying at a hotel, your accident may not be your fault.

Proving fault: Police reports and your car accident

When you are involved in a car accident, the most important first step is to figure out who the person at fault is. One person, at minimum, is likely to be charged with fault for their driving, impairment or negligence.

People are at their most vulnerable during such a procedure. Many fear the worst, and with good reason once you take the reported accounts of surgery room errors into account.

Don't let staged car accidents make you twice a victim

Faking a car accident is a swindle that has existed for decades. One or more persons stage a car accident to bilk insurance companies out of money. In many cases, these staged car accidents happen between parties who are all in on it, but sometimes they can involve innocent motorists as well.

Research ahead of time to avoid surgical errors in Florida

What do you really know about the surgeons practicing in Florida? Have you performed any due diligence before agreeing to have an operation? We are not talking about getting a second opinion because most of the time, surgeries are necessary. We are talking about researching the surgeon's background to determine if he or she has had any prior medical malpractice and surgical error claims.

The law on swimming pool injuries

Swimming pools are a fun activity, yet they're responsible for many accidents and deaths each year in the United States. Swimming pool accidents are often the result of negligence by the owner of the premises. In filing a damages claim, the law is different depending on the seriousness of the injury, and whether it took place in a private home or a commercial property.

Fight for your health with a medical malpractice claim

When you hear the term medical malpractice, your initial inclination may be to imagine a medical doctor who has failed to exercise a reasonable degree of care when dealing with a patient -- for example, by failing to diagnose an illness in a timely manner or committing grave surgical errors. However, the law does not limit malpractice to physicians' conduct.
