injuries caught on camera store surveillance

We now live in an age where technology is more and more pervasive in our lives.  You can hardly go to any business without there being hidden or exposed surveillance camera.  These cameras are designed to deter theft.  On occasion, these cameras will capture individuals being injured. Whether a slip and fall, trip and fall, a shootout at a gas station, or other injury event, obtaining the video of the incident can be a challenge.  Businesses routinely refuse to produce them to injury victims.  Often times it takes the filing of a lawsuit to force a business to produce the incident...

Car Accidents and Florida’s PIP Law

Car Accidents and Florida's PIP Law

WHY IS FLORIDA CALLED A "NO FAULT" STATE? Ever wonder why Florida as referred to as a “No Fault” state?  The answer is fairly simple.  Florida is referred to as a “No Fault” state because it requires drivers to have a specific insurance coverage to lawfully operate a vehicle on the roadway.  This insurance coverage is called Personal Injury Protection, or “PIP” for short. PIP insurance coverage is governed by Florida Statute §627.736.  It requires every driver at least $10,000.00 in benefits to help pay for medical treatment or lost wages caused by a crash.  It also includes an additional $5,000.00 in death...

How to help your injury case

As an injury attorney, I see many ways injury victims often hurt their case.  One of the main reasons is failing to seek immediate medical care after an injury. Seeking immediate medical care after an injury is extremely important.  Some of those reasons include: Documenting your pain complaints, Documenting any visible injuries, Helping relate the injury to the incident, and Securing your use of insurance benefits. Documenting Your Pain Complaints Properly documenting your injury claim begins early on.  Without proper documentation, you may be hurting your injury case. An important step is documenting your pain complaints with a medical provider.  Initial evaluations are necessary...

How Much Is My Case Worth?

What is my case worth?

How Much Is My Case Worth? “How much is my case worth?” This is probably the question I get asked the most.  As a result, I thought I would discuss what goes into determining case values.  Please keep in mind that each case is different and this is simply intended to give you a general overview.  Full analysis is too detailed for this post as analysis of your case's value is extremely fact-specific. However, before we begin let me just say the "How much is my case worth" is the wrong question.  You should be asking "What is the value of my case?" CASE...

Child Injuries and Deaths Due to Unstable Furniture

Child Injuries and Deaths due to unstable furniture

Child Injuries and Deaths Due to Unstable Furniture Most parents want to keep their child safe.  However, many forget to fully secure their homes.  This exposes their children to the danger of unstable furniture.  The fix for this problem is simple.  Parents of small children should anchor potentially unstable to the wall to prevent tipping of falling.  Having represented individuals who have lost a young child due being struck by unstable furniture, the dangers here cannot be overstated. In 2017, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (SPSC) released a study which reviewed deaths and ER-treated injuries due to furniture instability and tip-over.  The study examined...

Florida’s Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Law

Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Accident by Lawyer Justin presser

Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Law Slip and fall and trip and falls are some of the most common injuries claims after motor vehicle crashes.  The reason an injured person fell is usually not because they forgot how to walk.  Rather, many dangerous conditions can cause someone to fall.  Examples include elevated or cracked sidewalks or food or liquid on the floor.  Most of us have also encountered the ultra slippery-when-wet paint in a crosswalk. Florida has a statute outlining what slip and fall or trip and fall injury victims need to prove in court.  Florida requires fall injury victims...

Documenting the Injury Scene

When you are injured in a car accident, it's important to document the injury scene

If you have been injured, it is important to document the scene of your injury and preserve the evidence for later - even if there are eye witnesses. The Imperfection of Eye Witness Testimony While it is true that eyewitness testimony is some of the most impactful at trial, it is also considered one of the most unreliable forms of testimony.  One reason for this, according to a recent peer-reviewed article published on the National Center for Biotechnology Information’s website (part of the United States National Library of Medicine) is that memory is a reconstructive process.  When a person is asked to recall...
