Tom Harris, Injury Attorney
I've had two recent half million dollar cases settle...
Because I limit the number of injury cases I take, I give much more attention to detail and service to my client than lawyers who try to manage a large number of cases. Combine this with my 32 years injury law experience and you have a lawyer who consistently gets six figure settlements for accident victims.
Stop and stand or sit while you text...
It's not just texting while driving that is dangerous...so is texting while WALKING. 1) you are not watching where you are going and eventually you will veer off course 2) you aren't aware of what is going on around you. Although this video is funny, there have been lots of serious and even deadly consequences. Just google the topic : Serious injuries from "texting while walking".
The latest "viral video" from Pennsylvania shows a woman texting in a mall then tripping into a fountain. | COPYRIGHT ©2011 ABC NEWS | More videos: http://WN...
Everybody Knows Facebook Can Get You Fired…
but Apparently not everyone knows you can lose your lawsuit because of a careless post also.
Facebook posts can ruin your legal claim -
In my job as a personal injury attorney I see this happening more and more in reported court rulings. A Facebook post ruins a person's case. The most recent I read about went like this: A settlement is reached in which it is agreed that the settlement amount would remain confidential. After settlement but before the settlement check was issued, and after the case had already been dismissed, the plaintiff's daughter posted on Facebook that her father won his case and she disclosed the amount of the settlement saying they (the family) would be soon enjoying a European vacation with the settlement money.
Both parties, plaintiff (a person) and defendant (a corporation) were well known in the community and the daughter had 1200 Facebook friends. So when the defendant discovered this Facebook Post they went to the court with a motion to void their obligation to issue the settlement check which the court granted for breach of the confidentiality agreement. On top of this, to add insult to injury, the case had already been dismissed as part of the settlement, so the only part of the settlement that was upheld was the payment of attorney's fees to plaintiff's lawyers, but the plaintiff's individual net recovery was zero, with the case dismissed permanently.
LEGAL MATTERS SHOULD NOT EVER BE POSTED ON FACEBOOK. PERIOD!!!!
Don't post anything even remotely relevant to litigation you are in whether the case has or has not been settled. You would think this would be common sense, but with the explosion of Facebook dumb posts are going to happen. Talk about your case only with your lawyer, not your Facebook friends.
Auto Accident Litigation is a "Chess Match"
If you know a friend that has been injured in an automobile accident, he/she is no match to go it alone in seeking compensation for lost income and medical bills. Taking on an insurance company alone is like the photo of this Chess Game. You are significantly undermanned...so "Make the First Move" and call Tom Harris Law Group... we "Check Mate" insurance companies.
Wikipedia: Checkmate is a game position in chess in which a player's king is threatened with capture (i.e. is in check) and there is no legal move to escape the threat. — at Harris Law Group.
Florida is a no fault state for auto accidents, at least with respect to medical bills. All Florida car owners must have a minimum of $10,000 of Personal Injury Protection (PIP) medical benefits. Regardless of fault, if you are in an accident, your carrier will pay 80% of your own medical bills up to the limits of your policy, which is typically $10,000. The law also requires that each owner carry $10,000 of Property Damage Liability (PDL). This coverage applies to repair the car of the owner who was not at fault. So if you are in an accident and not at fault, and your damages are over $10,000, most likely your carrier will repair your vehicle (if you have collision coverage) and then pursue recovery from the at fault carrier. If the damages are under $10,000, either the at fault carrier will tender a check for your repairs and if they do not, your own carrier will likely repair your car and then pursue the at fault carrier for reimbursement. So Florida is only a no fault state with respect to medical bills, not property damage.
Also Florida law allows you to sue another driver for certain damages, and not be limited to PIP or no fault benefits, if you have a permanent injury caused by the auto accident. In this case you should hire an Sarasota or Bradenton auto accident attorney and demand recovery for past and future medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Besides covering 80 percent of your own medical expenses, your PIP will cover your child, members of your household, and passengers who may not have PIP Insurance as long as they do not own a vehicle. Also, passengers in your automobile and authorized drivers of your vehicle who have PIP will be covered under their own PIP for their medical bills.
Finally, If you are hurt in a motor vehicle accident while in someone else’s automobile, or as a pedestrian or bicyclist, then you should be covered by your own PIP medical insurance.
Experience is extremely important when choosing a Accident Attorney. I defended insurance companies and major self insured corporations for 17 years. If insurance companies retain you to defend a claim, they expect and demand you have the knowledge, skill and experience to either defeat the claim or minimize its value, through the process of litigation. During those 17 years, I routinely slugged it out with the toughest most aggressive Injury Attorneys, first in Mississippi and then in Florida. Lawyers who do this kind of work know its all about the credibility of the injured party and medical knowledge. Its a chess battle when two good lawyers go head to head trying to examine and cross exam the treating doctors during critical medical depositions. You get lots of battle scars from these confrontations. When I was a defender, I often won or limited the injured party's judgement or settlement. I no longer defend insurance companies….I sue the very ones I used to defend. And I now have 14 years experience representing the injured party rather than the insurance company. So combined both defending and suing, I've been doing this accident law gig for 31 years and there is not much I have not seen. I know how to prepare an accident law suit, and litigate it so that I maximize the potential recovery of my injured client. I know what makes a strong case strong and a weak case weak. I am a relentless competitor going back to my being an overly competitive child athlete all the way through college. Whether playing basketball, golf, track or football…I always had a passionate desire to win, stemming from idolizing my father who was one of the best rebounders and defenders to play in the NBA for the Boston Celtics during his era. So if you know anyone injured in an accident, trust my experience and competitiveness to help get them just monetary compensation for their injuries.
I am celebrating my 31st anniversary of graduating from law school. I am proud that I have 31 years experience handing personal injury auto accidents and slip and fall injuries, 17 or so of those 31 years I specialized in defending insurance companies but now I represent the injured people against the powerful...
