If you host a party at your house and one of your invited guests trips on an ill-placed brick on the walkway to your front door, they can sue you in the hopes of obtaining compensation for the injuries they sustain. Indeed, as the owner of your home, you are liable for the injuries of those who are on your property, especially if they are there legally (as are invited guests).
But what if, during that same party, a robber broke into your home and tried to steal a jewelry box? If the robber injured himself or herself on …

As experienced South Florida personal injury attorneys, we know that when an individual is harmed due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another, they have a right to take that individual to court in pursuit of compensation for the damages sustained as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing. A caveat to this rule lies within subsection s. 768.13 of the Florida State Statutes, otherwise known as Florida’s “Good Samaritan Act.”
No, this isn’t the type of Good Samaritan Law that was a part of the series finale of Seinfeld—you know, when Jerry, George, Kramer and Elaine were …

One of the most prevalent yet misinterpreted incidents involving personal injury are cases of “slip and falls,” in which an individual slips or falls (or trips, etc.), specifically due to the presence of a misplaced object (a brick protruding from a sidewalk), a walking space not properly kept (such as a wet floor in a grocery store), etc. The fact that the injuries in slip-and-fall cases are due to the individual slipping over or falling on an object or space that was not safely maintained means that the individual who has injured himself or herself has a legal claim …

While infections, lacerations and loss of limbs might commonly be associated with hospitals, construction sites or car crashes, they’re not typically discussed in the same breath as nail salons. Nevertheless, while commonly thought of as leisurely destinations for relaxation and pampering, the fact is that nail salons can be breeding grounds for bacteria and thus a prime location at which people can sustain serious injuries.
Nail salon tools and appliances can, when not properly cleansed and used, prove incredibly dangerous. Unsanitary manicure/pedicure utensils and dirty pedicure footbaths, for example, can lead to a variety of injuries and subsequent illnesses, …

What’s better: a bowl of cereal now, or a bowl of cereal in an hour? Well, if you’re hungry, the obvious answer is the former. But let’s complicate this a bit. What would you say if the deal were that you could receive ten cheerios now or a full bowl of cereal, to which you are entitled, in 5 hours?
Many car accident victims are faced with a far more serious version of the above dilemma. Often times, following a car accident, the insurance company for the negligent driver will make an offensively low offer to the injured driver, …

In the Friday, November 29th issue of the New York Times, BP (formerly known as British Petroleum) took out a full-page ad lambasting the settlement process that has overseen payouts to claimants in the fallout of the horrific 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
The ad lists a number of what BP calls “outrageous awards.” Among them, BP details the settlement of a cell phone retailer and service company that received a settlement award of $135,258, despite the fact that, according to BP, the store had shut down for all of the 2010 …

Aside from the impending frights of children dressed-up as ghosts and evildoers, there remains the very realistic possibility that homeowners, because of incidents that could take place tonight, may face a …
