Legal Answers
24 Questions Answered

Q. If a palm fron falls on you and you are on private property are the owners responsible?
A: Property owners must make their property reasonably safe for people who are on the property lawfully. This duty would include ensuring that they maintain trees properly. The extent of this duty would depend partly on the type of property involved. To hold the property owner accountable for the injuries caused by the tree on the property, you need to be able to establish liability.
Q. Is the homeowner responsible for his daughters dog injuring me in Florida?
A: Usually, the dog's owner is legally responsible for the damage or injury the dog causes. But the homeowner may also be liable if he or she was taking care of and had control over the dog or the dog's owner is less than 18 years old.
Q. Once lawyer has your settlement check, they should be able to let you know when you will get your check?
A: In theory, your attorney is supposed to distribute the settlement to you, any lien holders, and him or herself only when the check has cleared. It's hard to imagine waiting more than a week or two at the most for a settlement check to clear. In addition to the problem of the check clearing there can be a much longer wait for a problem with liens. Suppose some of the medical bills were paid by Medicare or hospitals may also have liens on a case, it can take many months to get a response from them.
Q. I was hit but someone on a bicycle and they were deemed at fault are they required to pay for my damages?
A: Yes, you on your right to pursue compensation. Severe injuries from such a collision can mean lengthy hospital stays, time in physical rehabilitation facilities, ongoing treatment plans, physical therapy and other expensive medical interventions and you can pursue any monetary damages you might be due for your suffering.
Q. If you're at a seafood restaurant and an oyster has a pearl in it that cracks a molar are they responsible ?
A: Check with the restaurant to see if they have premises liability insurance. If they do, most premises liability insurance policies have medical expense payments availability. If this coverage is available through that restaurant's insurance, they may pay your medical bills. If they do not have the coverage or if they refuse to pay for their medical expense benefit, contact a personal injury lawyer. Most personal injury attorneys do not charge for an initial consultation.
Q. i was injured in a 10 x 10 beer cooler my employer built without a building permit - is this beyond a wc injury
A: When an employer displays gross negligence and a wanton disregard for safety, you can file a third-party claim against the employer. In addition to proving gross negligence and a wanton disregard for safety, most courts require proof that such actions or omissions were intentional and this is a very heavy burden of proof.
Q. My 8 year old daughter fell on the stairs at home breaking her arm.a nail was sticking out. Should the landlord be liabl
A: A tenant who is injured must show proof that the landlord failed to maintain the property correctly under Florida law. You must show that the defect was a violation of the law, a defect in construction or something that was dangerous. Also, the landlord would be responsible for poor work performed by someone he or she hired to repair the problem.
Q. If an underage child is is a pedestrian in state of Florida and was hurt and has Medicaid,who is responsible for the bil
A: If the injured child resided with a relative who owned a vehicle that was insured, PIP (Personal Injury Protection) under a Florida automobile insurance policy may end up covering the medical bills for the injured child. It's important to retain the services of a Florida personal injury attorney to get guidance, advice, and, legal representation to get through these tough and confusing issues.
Q. Yesterday I had my leg pinned against the steel by a faulty power jack after telling a supervisor my Jack was faulty
A: Under state workers’ comp laws, you don't have to prove your employer was negligent. Your injury is proof enough to invoke workers’ compensation. The disadvantage is that although workers’ comp has a simplified claim process, you give up your right to compensation for pain and suffering. An exception exists when an employer displays gross negligence. In this case, you can file a separate third-party claim against the employer. In addition to proving gross negligence and a wanton disregard for safety, most courts require proof that such actions or omissions were intentional. This is a very heavy burden of proof. If you’ve been injured on the job as a result of defective machinery or equipment, you may be entitled to make a third-party defective product claim. The legal burden of proving a defective product claim is not as high as the burden in an employer negligence claim. You only need to prove the machinery or equipment was defective, and the defect was the direct cause of your injuries.
