  • By: Micah Longo, Esq.
  • Published: April 22, 2020

You would never plan for something like this, so the sudden occurrence of this life-altering event can leave you dealing with issues that you never planned for. To make matters even worse, this car accident wasn’t even your fault. Maybe someone was texting and driving, or ran a red light, or got behind the wheel to drive while intoxicated.

How Do You Calculate a Wrongful Death Settlement?

  • Published: February 28, 2020

The death of a close family member is beyond terrible. Doubt, sadness, anger, grief, fear, shock, and bereavement are only the beginning of what you are feeling. To make matters even worse, you may come to learn that their death was actually the result of poor decision making on the part of someone else. Often, this constitutes a “wrongful death.” The legal definition that is used here in Florida of wrongful death is “The death of a human being as the result of a wrongful act of another person.” This broad definition can cover such criminal acts include: negligence (careless driving), an intentional attack (a death that occured during a fight), a death in the course of another crime (such as a fatal injury that took place during a robery), vehicular manslaughter, manslaughter, or murder.… Read More

Faqs: How Much is a Slip and Fall Worth?
  • By: Micah Longo, Esq.
  • Published: January 31, 2020

A slip and fall is a terrible experience. You are minding your own business, maybe grocery shopping or walking in a mechanic’s garage and suddenly you find yourself on your back. The incident itself is bad enough, yet you can’t just put it behind you. You have medical bills to pay from the immediate and long-term effects of the fall. While injured, you cannot work which makes paying these bills even harder. There are other effects as well, such as a loss of enjoyment in things you used to love. You may have even been at work when your fall occurred, which further complicates both your employment and getting the restitution you deserve. This is why Davie, FL attorneys are so often asked about this type of incident. The most common question is “How much… Read More

The Dangers of Fatigued Driving

You’d never drive drunk- but what about tired? You may be shocked to learn that the two are much closer than you may have imagined. By its definition, “fatigued driving” is when a driver, after prolonged periods of continuous driving, experiences mental and physical functional disorder. A fatigued driver means a deadly driver, plain and simple! The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that fatigue driving plays a part in 7,500 fatal motor vehicle crashes a year in the U.S. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety conducted a study of 700 accidents and found that 9.5% of those crashes involved drowsy drivers. As scary as it is, many drivers will get behind the wheel despite the fact that they can barely keep their eyes open. A little under 30% of drivers admit to having… Read More

Learn What to Do After an Uber Driver Accident

  • Published: November 26, 2019

You take an Uber to be safer and have less worries. Most often, people use these ride sharing apps because they know they will be drinking and don’t want to risk the ramifications of driving drunk. Another common reason to take an Uber is that you’re visiting a city you don’t know well enough to get around in. In both these cases, you assume the Uber driver is a safe and competent individual. Then, the unthinkable happens. You’re in a car crash while the Uber driver is at the wheel. Afterwards, you may be shocked to find he or she doesn’t have the right kind of car insurance to cover your injuries. What is your next step? You have medical bills to pay! This is when a Davie, FL lawyer should get involved. Dealing with an insurance… Read More

  • Published: October 24, 2019

While Florida is certainly one of the most beautiful places in the country, it should not surprise you to find out that our roads are some of the most dangerous.

The death of a loved one is terrible, but the situation can be made even worse if it is discovered that the death was caused by the criminal negligence or direct actions of someone else. The death may be the result of a murder, reckless driving, a negligent or careless act, malpractice, or many other causes. Besides killing someone, their actions have caused the family members of that person to be hurt because they relied on the financial and emotional support of the deceased. If their death was preventable and didn’t need to occur, you are right to consider your legal options. Wrongful death or accidental death lawsuits are meant to compensate those family members left behind after a fatal accident. In a wrongful death suit, there are two types of damages: economic and non-economic. Economic damages…Read More

Have you recently been fired? Don’t be too quick to assume you have no legal claims against your former employer, regardless of why you were fired or what they said. Even employees who are fired for cause might be able to prove wrongful termination, in the right circumstances. It’s not illegal for an employer to fire an employee, even for a reason that seems unfair or unjustified. Unfortunately, an employer can even legally lie about the reason for termination. However, the employer cannot legally fire anyone for a reason that breaches a contract or violates the law. If the real reason for terminating an employee is discrimination, retaliation, employee whistle-blowing, or other protected activity, the termination is then wrongful. The only way to know for sure is to consult with an attorney. You need The…Read More
