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 »

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 »

Gotta Catch ‘Em All

Drugged Driving Negligence Cases In Florida

By Paul Reed |

Because there is no BAC breath test for drug use, and because police officers rarely bother to obtain search warrants for blood draws, almost all drugged driving prosecutions are based on circumstantial evidence. For similar reasons, these cases are more difficult to win in civil court as well, largely because the negligence per se… Read More »

Rented Vehicles And Third Party Liability

By Paul Reed |

One of the main reasons we file negligence lawsuits is to make the roads safer for everyone, and that is also one of the reasons third party (vicarious) liability is so important. Rented vehicles are a good example. If no one holds Enterprise, U-Haul, and other vehicle lessors responsible when they carelessly rent vehicles… Read More »

Fatigued Driving In Florida

By Paul Reed |

In Orlando alone, 60 percent of drivers admit they have operated a vehicle in the last twelve months even though they knew they were too fatigued to drive safely, and because this figure is self-reported, it is probably vastly understated. Nationwide, fatigue driving causes about one million vehicle collisions a year, and many of… Read More »

Alcohol-Related Car Crashes In Orlando

By Paul Reed |

It seems like light-years ago now, but back in the 1970s and 1980s, DUI laws were rather weak and sporadically enforced, and in fact, it wasn’t uncommon for police officers to release intoxicated motorists if they promised to drive straight home. Although we now live in a world of strict laws, ignition interlock devices,… Read More »

Alcohol-Involved Head-On Crash In Orlando

By Ryan Reed |

A suspected drunk driver travelling the wrong way on State Road 417 slammed into another vehicle, critically injuring its driver.

Wasn’t This On The Late Show?

A large truck lost part of its load on an Orlando roadway, releasing an estimated one million bees into the surrounding area. Details remain sketchy about the single-vehicle accident that occurred near the intersection of State Road 46A and State Road 46 in Lake County. In the wake of the crash, fifty of the… Read More »
