Know how to collect for a workplace injury

If you've been injured on the job and it's serious enough to keep you out of work for a while, your next question is probably, "What do I do now?"

Somehow, you have to find a way to pay your medical expenses and bills. These are some of the most common options you may have:

Trespassing when injured? You may still have a case

Homeowners and landowners owe a different duty of care, or level of responsibility, toward the people that come on their property.

For the most part, anyone who is invited to be on the property should be shown the highest level of care -- followed closely by those who have a right to be on the property for the sake of business, like postal workers and meter readers.

Florida insurance company sues its own policyholders

Imagine having your house severely damaged in a storm, requiring major repairs.

Now, imagine that your insurance company sues you for not getting those repairs done by the "right" contractor -- meaning the one that they preferred you to use.

Blackout Wednesday: A time for all drivers to be cautious

Maybe people are enjoying an early start to the whole holiday season -- or maybe they just really hate visiting their relatives on Thanksgiving. Whatever the cause, there really is a huge uptick in the amount drinking that happens during the evening before Thanksgiving.

The night has even earned it's own moniker: Blackout Wednesday.

Pedestrians: Know the risks of the road and take precautions

It isn't easy to be a pedestrian in a world built for motor vehicles.

Even in places where pedestrians are given a little formalized space on the road, pedestrians run the risk that drivers are distracted, tired, rushing the light or just won't see them due to sun glare, changing light or some other reason.

Insurance disputes: Know your rights and how to respond to issues

Insurance is a frustrating necessity of adult life that never involves happy experiences.

You certainly can't be excited about buying insurance. You're essentially making a bet that something horrible is going to happen, and you'll need plenty of money to offset the loss. (The insurance company is making the opposite bet, by the way.)

Parents: Beware of these defects in children’s products

Parents typically go to great lengths to ensure that the products they purchase for their children are safe. Many moms and dads put hours into researching ratings, cost and quality of everything from toys to food products.

Unfortunately, despite all of the research that parents do, kids and babies can still get sick or hurt by a product if it is defective. If you have children, then it can be helpful to know some of the most common types of defects in children's products, as well as what types of products are often cited in recalls.

Was your loved one's death wrongful?

The death of any loved one after an accident can feel wrongful. However, there is a difference between feeling wrong and being wrongful, at least in the legal context.

Every death feels wrong, especially when it is untimely. In order for a death to be considered wrongful in the eyes of the courts, though, there must in place specific elements. These elements include a death, a wrongful act and damages suffered by spouses, children, parents or other eligible survivors. 

Bad doctors in Florida keep treating patients

If you're any kind of patient of any kind of doctor in Florida, it pays to be very careful about which doctor you choose to trust.

Better yet, you might try to just avoid needing one altogether. Otherwise, you have no idea whether that doctor should be practicing medicine or not. Even when officials finally do take action to stop a bad doctor from further ruining people's lives, they may delay acting for months or years while that doctor continues to flout their authority and practice "medicine" anyhow.

3 types of damages you could collect after a serious car crash

In the aftermath of a serious motor vehicle accident, victims may feel tempted to accept whatever settlement an insurance company offers and just move forward. However, this can be a costly mistake if the offer doesn’t reflect the full extent of damages you have suffered.

Before you make any decisions about a settlement, you would be wise to closely examine your situation and consider talking to an attorney. Chances are that there are damages you overlooked or were not aware are eligible for compensation. Below, we look at some of the damages that can be recovered with a personal injury claim.
