New post (Liability for Slip and Fall) has been published on Harris Law Fort Myers
When someone falls in a store or supermarket, major injuries may result. From a broken leg, injured knee, herniated disc, or head injury, serious medical consequences often follow serious falls.
Negligence Must be Proven in a Slip and Fall Accident
Premises liability is the area of law which focuses on slip and fall accidents and trip and fall incidents. While some people believe a retailer is automatically liable for the injuries which flow from the Lee County, Florida slip and fall accident, the fact is Florida law does not create such an obligation on any store, grocer, or retail business.
Instead, the slip and fall accident victim must prove negligence on the part of the store. In other words, to be legally responsible for slip and fall accident injuries in a store, the injured person must prove with evidence that the business through its employees either created t ...

New post (Wrongful Death of Child) has been published on Harris Law Fort Myers
The loss of a child is the deepest wound which never heals. Families can be, and often are, destroyed by the loss of a child.
Wrongful Death of Child
Unquestionably the greatest loss of all – one that is truly inconsolable – is the death of a child. Parents’ grief never ends. This sense of loss permeates everything and tragically, will always leave emptiness and a hole in the parents’ hearts. Comforting your child, playing silly games and making them laugh. Gone.
We have to have faith and hope that this Gift from God, this beautiful child whom we believed to have such promise and hope has been reborn to a caring and loving God in whom we trust.
Claim for Wrongful Death of Child
The civil justice system, for all its brilliance in design and concept, is the most limited here. For a parent to seek justice on behalf of their most cherished, innocent, and blessed gift, who was taken away ...
New post (Right Turn Intersection Accident) has been published on Harris Law Fort Myers
There are too many dangerous intersection crashes in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres, and Lee County, Florida. The blame for virtually all accidents at intersections is carelessness.
Among the more common violations of a basic rule of the road is that drivers making a right hand turn at an intersection do not yield to vehicles approaching the intersection.
Right Turn Drivers Must Yield to Oncoming Traffic
A driver at an intersection right light or stop sign may often make a right turn on red. Every motorist, however, must yield to oncoming traffic (vehicle traveling in the opposite direction or approaching from different intersecting road or highway). Many right turning vehicles at intersections misjudge the speed of oncoming vehicles, which cause crashes.
Similarly, right-hand turning vehicles often attempt to turn right by crossing additional lanes of traffic into the ou ...
New post (Left Turn Intersection Accident) has been published on Harris Law Fort Myers
No matter how basic this rule of the road may be, many drivers in Fort Myers and throughout Lee County violate this traffic law every single day: when making a left turn at an intersection, the driver in the opposite (or oncoming) lane of traffic has the right of right of way. In other words, the left hand turning vehicle has a duty to yield to oncoming traffic. Doing so avoids big crashes which cause serious personal injury and death
Left Turn Vehicles Must Yield
Under Florida law, the driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left at an intersection or driveway must yield the right-of-way to any vehicle approaching from the opposite direction. In other words, the left turn driver at an intersection has to yield to all oncoming traffic, and only make the turn after all traffic has cleared the intersection.
Unfortunately, despite the law, drivers often do what they want to do. ...
New post (Seasonal Resident Auto Accident) has been published on Harris Law Fort Myers
Southwest Florida part-time residents are often referred to as “snowbirds.” These individuals flock to Lee County Florida during the best weather seasonal months of October through April. Because the population swells during these months, there are a corresponding increase in the number of auto accidents.
Where the Seasonal Drivers Come From
While some locals refer to snowbird drivers as “slowbirds” for the stereotypical slow driving in the left-hand lane during rush hours, there are often many motor vehicle accidents in which the out-of-state driver is at fault. In these auto accidents, the seasonal resident is legally liable for injuries just like any Florida driver.
Many seasonal drivers during season in Lee County come from the following States: Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Missouri, Kentucky, Georgia, Mississippi. There are motoris ...
New post (Avoiding Semi Truck Danger Zones) has been published on Harris Law Fort Myers
Awareness Can Prevent a Truck Crash in SW Fla.
The U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) created the “Share the Road” program to educate drivers on safely sharing the road with large trucks and buses all the way back in 1994.
One of the goals of the awareness campaign was to increase awareness about “No-Zones.” These zones are dangerous locations near a big rig or semi truck. More often then not, a trucking accident occurs within these danger zones on the highway.
Accordingly, by avoiding these no-zones, drivers have a better chance of avoiding a life-changing truck accident.
Understanding No Zones Around Commercial Trucks
No-Zones are danger areas around a large truck where a passenger vehicle can actually disappear from view—the truck driver may have no idea your car is there. There are four major No-Zones to avoid:
Front No-Zone. Tr ...
New post (At Fault Driver Liability) has been published on Harris Law Fort Myers
The driver who causes a crash is often referred to as the “at fault driver.” The negligent driver. The careless driver. The reckless driver. The distracted driver.
What do these designations mean in practical terms? What is the real consequence for being responsible for causing the car accident? Under Florida law, the at fault driver may be held liable for all damages which result from the crash, including aggravation of existing conditions.
The law, however, then meets reality. Neither the at-fault driver nor the insurance company are eager to pay compensation for those damages. Even when the other driver is 100% at fault, the reality is victims are often in for a battle against the insurance company to have their damages fully and promptly paid.
Traffic Citation is Often Not Enough to Obtain Compensation
Many times in Lee County, Florida and SW Fla, the investigating officer who co ...
New post (Builder Negligence and Contactor Liability) has been published on Harris Law Fort Myers
Harms, losses, and injuries which occur because of dangerous conditions, or defects, on property are fairly common in Southwest Florida. Determining who may be responsible may not just be limited to the property owner or property manager.
Depending on the circumstances, the builder or contractor may may be negligent and liable for damages caused to persons on the property.
Building Code Violations Lead to Liability for Injury
Premises defects which result in injury may result in a liability claim against the legally responsible parties. For property on which construction is completed and a person is injured by a hidden—latent—defect, then the general contractor or builder may be liable for the injuries and losses.
One of the first steps is determining whether a building code violation exists on the property which caused the personal injury. Florida Statute § 553.84 creates a civil ac ...
New post (Why Do We Have Personal Injury Law?) has been published on Harris Law Fort Myers
There are many misconceptions about personal injury law throughout the U.S. Specifically, the point of it all. Southwest Florida is no different, and many good people simply do not know the foundations of compensation for injury and why these laws exist.
Goofy Lawsuits Confuse Tort Law’s True Purpose
Understandably, many people have concerns about, or do not understand, the purpose of personal injury law. The doubt surrounding this area of the law does seems to increase when consumers see and hear lawyers on television— seemingly during every commercial break—and on billboards and various other media, talking about aggressively pursuing money for injuries.
Big business has taken advantage of this confusion, saddling all trial lawyers and personal injury attorneys with the same broad brush of troubling cases. Ignoring the good deeds done, the focus is on high-profile silly claims. As ...

New post (Attorney for Semi Tractor Trailer Accident) has been published on Harris Law Fort Myers
Large trucks are used in daily commerce throughout Southwest Florida. Wholesalers, distributors, and retailers utilize large commercial trucks to deliver trailers full of cargo or product to the their respective stores to sell to consumers. Department stores, supermarkets, warehouse stores, and similar business outlets receive massive quantities of goods for sale almost every day of the week from large trucks.
The types of commercial vehicles which provide these transportation services are known by several names. Among the descriptive terms include—semi-tractor-trailers, tractor trailers, semis, big rigs, semi truck, eighteen-wheelers—and provide not only the visual of size but also type, or truck being discussed.
These trucks are the largest vehicles on the road. As such, then tractor trailers and big rigs cause a crash, the results are often catastrophic and fat ...
New post (Beware of Tips Which Hurt Not Help) has been published on Harris Law Fort Myers
Everyone has an opinion. Nothing wrong with that, and as matter of fact, something I encourage among everyone. The reader should consider what is being suggested and then consider other options or points of view.
As applied to personal injury claims, there seem to be all types of suggestions on what to do and what mistakes to avoid. All opinions offered as suggestions or tips, however, should be scrutinized before relying on them. This includes any suggestions or random thoughts provided here.
Some Personal Injury Claim Tips Are Not Helpful
The reason I suggest thoughtfully considering any tip—whether provided by an experienced lawyer or some self-styled guru—is because some recommendations may not help your circumstances or cause.
For example, there are some lawyers who suggest that immediately after an accident causing injury—whether auto accident, slip and fall, construction misha ...
