Should I Give Recorded Statement to Insurance Company?
  • By: Micah Longo, Esq.
  • Published: December 22, 2016

After an accident the insurance company will ask you to give a recorded statement. Should you give a recorded statement to the insurance company? The answer depends on who is asking. You are under no obligation to make a recorded statement unless your own insurance policy requires it. Almost every insurance policy has such a provision. Then, and ONLY then, should you make a recorded statement. Do Not Volunteer Information If you must give a recorded statement please remember DO NOT volunteer information. This cannot be emphasized enough! You should never volunteer statement to ANYONE if you don’t have to. Not to the police, witnesses, or insurance adjusters, unless required by law. Florida is a comparative negligence state. This means, if you are found partially at-fault, your claims can be reduced by the amount of…Read More

Employer Lied About Reason For Termination
  • By: Micah Longo, Esq.
  • Published: December 14, 2016

You’ve just been fired, and you’re lucky enough to have the reason why explained to you (hopefully in writing). So, can you sue if your employer lied about the reason for termination? Well, it depends on the “true reason” for your termination, not the reason given by your employer. An employee can be fired for a good reason, a bad reason, reason based on false facts, or for no reason at all. The question is whether it was for a non-discriminatory reason. Reasons like favoritism, mistake, or disdain are irrelevant and may be lawful. Unlawful Termination First, it is unlawful to terminate someone because of their race, national origin, age, sex, religion, or disabilty. This is what we call the protected classes. It is also unlawful to reduce pay or transfer employee to an undesirable location because of membership in…Read More

The best accident lawyers in Florida are excellent salesmen. They’ve been to law school and have years of experience in negotiating claims.  Accident lawyers know they are selling a product. In the accident claims game the product is damages. The sale includes pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages. Since you can’t go back in time, the product used to settle claims of damages is money.  It’s easy to find the best accident attorney in Florida based on the following: Good Working Relationship The best accident lawyers in Florida spend time with their opponent. This can be an insurance adjuster or a defense attorney.  They always treat their opponent with respect and professionalism. No one likes being treated like a second-class citizen. This is especially true of insurance adjusters. Now this doesn’t mean an accident lawyer should become…Read More

Should I See a Doctor Immediately After an Accident?
  • By: Micah Longo, Esq.
  • Published: September 20, 2016

You should see a doctor immediately after an accident in Florida. This is best, but if not immediately after an accident, then as soon as possible thereafter. Any delay in treatment could have an adverse effect on your case. Immediate treatment does not mean you must go to the emergency room. You can go to an urgent care facility or your primary care physician.  I do, however, recommend that you first see a medical doctor, as opposed to a chiropractor, at least in the beginning. You will want to see a doctor immediately because if something is seriously wrong, you’ll want to know it early on. Also, insurance companies track when you first treated. If you waited too long to seek medical treatment, the insurance company will argue that you’re really not hurt. Many times people are hurt but…Read More
