Click here to get the video explanation of "How to File a Cruise Ship Accident Case" Attorney Micah Longo of the Davie personal injury and employment law firm, The Longo Firm says, “probably the most important questions is when and where do I file my cruise ship accident case? Most cruise lines will dictate when and where on the ticket contract you signed with the cruise line. However, each cruise line has different requirements for claims filed and lawsuits filed. Generally, most cruise lines will require claims to be filed within 6-months, lawsuits within 1-year and filed in the Southern District of Florida (Miami). So, even if you live outside the state of Florida or your ship departed somewhere other than Florida, you’ll still likely need to hire a South Florida lawyer to file your…Read More

Click here to get the video explanation of "Will Canceling My Car Insurance Hurt My Case?" Davie car accident attorney Micah Longo of The Longo Firm says, “as long as you were insured at the time of the crash, you can cancel your auto insurance policy at anytime, without hurting your car accident claim. Now, the insurance company will try to sell you that canceling is a bad idea because they want to keep you as a customer. Don’t fall for their trap! If you’re not satisfied with the service, coverage, or rates, you can cancel at any time! I do recommend you AVOID “bargain” insurance companies like Ocean Harbor and United Auto. You really do get what you pay for. Also, PLEASE make sure you purchase Uninsured Motorist (“UM”) coverage. It is perhaps the…Read More

Click here to get the video explanation of  "What to Do After a Bike Accident in Florida?" Attorney Micah Longo for The Longo Firm in Davie, Florida says, “did you know that Florida has the highest number of bike accident injuries and deaths in the United States? In this video I will discuss some of the important steps to follow if you’ve been injured in a bike accident in Florida. First, try to clear the scene by moving your bike off the roadway. Once everyone is out of danger and the scene is clear, call 911. Next, try to obtain witness information. In other words, get the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of anyone who saw what happened. I always recommend bike accident victims seek immediate emergency medical treatment, even if they don’t feel much…Read More

Click here to get the video explanation of "What is Considered Sexual Harassment in Florida?" Attorney Micah Longo of The Longo Firm in Davie, FL says, “federal and state civil rights laws prohibit employers from discriminating against workers because of their sex. In other words, these laws prohibit a hostile work environment caused by sexual harassment. Usually, a worker claims a co-worker or supervisor harassed her because of sex and that harassment created a hostile work environment. To have a sexual harassment case in Florida the offensive acts or statements must be so severe or pervasive that it materially alters the terms and conditions of the employment. Factors that are considered are how often the conduct occurred? it’s severity? whether it was physically or psychologically threatening or humiliating? and whether it interfered with the worker’s…Read More

Davie Accident Attorney Micah Longo of The Longo Firm says, “recovery requires more than a mere possibility that future treatment might be obtained. Future medical bills must be reasonably certain to be incurred. Doctor testimony is almost always required to support a claim for future medical expenses in an accident case.Read More

Published on May 7, 2016 Attorney Micah Longo of The Longo Firm in Davie, FL says, “when hiring an accident attorney you shouldn’t have to worry about paying anything up-front. Most Florida accident lawyers work on a contingency fee. This means there is no fee (or cost) unless your lawyer gets money for you! Most Florida accident lawyers charge a contingency fee of 33 1/3% if the case is settled pre-suit and 40% if the case is resolved during litigation. Case expenses and costs like filing fees, depositions, and photocopying medical records are usually deducted from the settlement at the end of the case. The Florida Bar requires all contingency fee agreements to be in writing and come with a signed statement of client’s rights. If you are considering hiring a Florida accident attorney be…Read More

Published on May 7, 2016 Every accident case is different, but generally, there are three (3) basic things Florida accident lawyers look for in determining how much an accident is worth. First, we look at liability. In other words, who is at-fault in the accident. Second, we look at the injuries. In a negligence type case, you may be entitled to medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and mental anguish damages. Now, it’s very much a double-edged sword in that the more injured you are the more value your case has. Lastly, we look at insurance coverage. This is where the money comes from. We’re always looking for deep pockets. The more insurance dollars available the more likely we’re able to collect for our clients. Again, every case is…Read More

Florida’s Pip Emergency Medical Condition 14-day Rule Explained
  • By: Micah Longo, Esq.
  • Published: May 13, 2017

In this article I’m going to explain Florida’ PIP emergency medical condition (“EMC”) 14-day rule.  Suppose you go to the ER immediately after an accident, but don’t see another doctor until 20-days later.  Are you entitled to the full $10,000 in PIP benefits? Initial Treatment:  14-Day Rule In Florida, you have 14-days to seek “initial treatment” after an accident to get the full $10,000 of PIP benefits.  The key phrase is initial treatment.  Initial treatment can be with a chiropractor, medical doctor, emergency room, or urgent care clinic.   You’ll still need a certification from a doctor (other than a chiropractor) confirming you’ve suffered an emergency medical condition (“EMC”).  An EMC certification doesn’t have to be issued within 14-days, only initial treatment.  Often times a patient goes to the ER after an accident but doesn’t follow-up with another doctor for… Read More
