Some Common Insurance Company Car Crash Defenses

By Paul Reed |

Despite what catchy commercial jingles may imply, an insurance company is not “on your side” if you are a car crash victim. These businesses make money by collecting large premiums and denying as many claims as possible, which is why the company is committed to minimum compensation for victims. In court, insurance company lawyers… Read More »

Establishing Damage Claims In Slip And Fall Cases

By Paul Reed |

Each year in America, about eight million victims are rushed to the hospital emergency room after a serious slip and fall. The elderly are particularly at risk for serious injury, because a majority of these individuals are never able to live independently again after a fall injury. Under Florida law, property owners are usually… Read More »

Top Common Car Crash Causes

By Paul Reed |

Human error causes about 94 percent of car crashes, a statistic that is cited very often in many calls for driverless cars. Sometimes, the human error is a one-off mistake that had tragic consequences, sometimes simple negligence is involved, and sometimes the tortfeasor (negligent driver) intentionally disregarded a known risk and thereby endangered the… Read More »

Damages Available In Florida Bicycle Crashes

By Paul Reed |

According to one study, between 1997 and 2013, a staggering 3.8 million bicyclists were seriously injured in vehicle-bicycle collisions.

Shoulder Dystocia And Birth Injuries

By Paul Reed |

LGA (large for gestational age) fetuses are greatly at risk for shoulder dystocia and birth injuries, and although the red flags should be easy to see, many doctors overlook them. Shoulder dystocia occurs when the baby is too large to fit through the mother’s narrow birth canal during delivery. Although the baby does not… Read More »

Vicarious Liability And Vehicle Leases

By Paul Reed |

Per the negligent entrustment rule, vehicle owners are liable for damages if they allow people to use their vehicles and those individuals negligently injure someone else. However, because of the Graves Amendment, this rule has limited applicability in commercial transactions, such as those that involve U-Haul and other moving truck rental cases. This issue… Read More »

Breaking Down A Dog Bite Case

By Paul Reed |

In our increasingly-polarized society, the battle lines are clearly drawn in dog bite cases. Some states have laws which essentially immunize owners against negligence lawsuits, through procedural hurdles, damage caps, or both. Other states, including Florida, have more victim-friendly laws which make it easier to file, and win, a damage claim. Dog Bite Law… Read More »

‘Alarming’ Increase In Pedestrian Fatalities

By Paul Reed |

That was the word one observer used to describe an 11 percent increase in pedestrian traffic deaths. That’s the highest single-year increase ever and almost twice the size of the increase in traffic deaths overall. Lower gas prices and a better economy mean that more cars are on the roads, and a significant number… Read More »

What You Need To Know About Residential Swimming Pool Injuries

By Paul Reed |

Eighty percent of the 7,000 swimming pool drowning deaths that occur each year happen in backyard spas or pools. This figure does not include the number of swimming pool and spa poisonings, because sometimes owners overuse toxic cleaning chemicals, like chlorine and bromine. This figure also does not include the number of serious swimming… Read More »

Winning Money In Alcohol-Related Car Crashes

By Paul Reed |

Human error causes almost all car crashes, and many times, that error is unrelated to driving. For example, a tire may be defective or the operator may be too sleepy to drive. Alcohol impairment, which is a factor in about a third of the fatal vehicle collisions in Florida, may be the most prominent… Read More »
