Auto Accidents and Injuries
Ridesharing services are becoming increasingly popular. Increased use means increased chances of accidents. It is important, for both the driver and the passenger, to know how you are covered in the event of an accident. If you are the driver and experience an accident, you may be covered under your own auto policy, the Lyft/Uber policy, or both.
The claims process involving a ride sharing services is different than a claim against an individual at-fault driver’s insurance. It is extremely important to have an experienced attorney handle the matter so you can be fairly compensated.
In Florida, there are certain people who can receive benefits when a relative dies of someone’s wrongdoing. The money that they can recover depends on several factors including; their relationship to the deceased, the age of the deceased, and the expected earnings potential of the deceased.
Additionally, funeral and burial expenses are reimbursable to the person who paid for them. There is a short time period where you can make a claim against the responsible party, 2 years from the date of death. This short time frame makes it extremely important that you consult an attorney as soon as you are able after the death of the relative.
The second type of dog bite case is when you are bitten by someone else’s dog. You might be able to recover the medical bills, pain and suffering and any lost income that you may have had as a result of the bite. In other states you have to prove that the dog bit someone else before it bit you. This is not the case in Florida. If you were legally on the property and were bitten, you are entitled to recover damages from the owner.

Debunking Attorney Myths
It's too expensive to call an attorney.
At Brandon Legal Group, your initial consultation is free. Personal Injury cases are offered on a contingency fee basis meaning there are no out of pocket expenses unless there is a financial recovery in your favor. In other matters, if you think an attorney representing you is too expensive, imagine living without seeing your children or spending the next 10 years in prison…
Having an attorney makes you look guilty.
You may be great at a lot of things, but when is the last time you were lead counsel in a criminal matter? Every individual has a constitutional right to experienced legal counsel no matter the magnitude of the matter. In many instances, the Court may prefer working with experienced Counsel rather than a layman as all litigating parties will be held to the same legal standard and process.
Lawyers just complicate the process.
Experienced attorneys should foresee pitfalls in your case and reduce the chances of last-second surprises that delay or disrupt the finalization of your legal matter. Attorneys know the process, know the nuances of varying judges courtrooms, and can provide you with the proper resources to make the best decisions in your matter.
