A Journey through the History of Personal Injury Law

The roots of personal injury law run all the way back to ancient Greek and Roman times, when legal processes were introduced to allow citizens to plead grievances against a guilty party.

Although traditionally these early examples of personal injury lawyers were not allowed to accept money for their services, this rule was often overlooked, and was eventually abolished by the 1st century AD.…

Is the Personal Injury Stigma Stopping You from Fighting?

Does seeing a personal injury ad on TV make you suspicious? Maybe the face of a lawyer on a billboard makes you cringe. If you’re hesitant to trust personal injury attorneys, it’s okay—you’re not the only one.

Watch Out for Holiday Dangers at Stores

Anyone who has gone to the mall on a Friday evening knows how dreadful and even downright threating the crowds can be—groups of teenagers everywhere, 20-somethings plowing through the crowds to grab the latest fashions for the weekend, parents shopping for whatever relatives have birthdays or parties coming up.

 

But now that holiday season is in full swing, running the mall gauntlet is riskier than ever. At this time of year, it’s important for consumers and storeowners alike to remember that stores are responsible for the safety of their shoppers—if accidents happen on company property, the storeowner or manager could be held accountable.…

New PIP Rules Limit Help Injury Victims Can Get

A few months ago in Florida, accident victims and their advocates were dealt a depressing blow when a group of businesspeople fighting the state’s new PIP laws lost in court. What kind of blow? Not only do those who suffer injuries in car crashes now have fewer options regarding where and how they get medical help, they’ll have less money to do so and be subject to strict rules about providing proof and acting within thenarrow time limits.

 

In order to understand the changes and why they’re bad for regular Floridians, first you have to know what PIP is, what it’s supposed to do, and what it actually does.…

Defective Product Cases Can Be Quite Complex
