Get help with your personal injury case after an accident

If you are hurt in a car crash, one of the things you can do is file a personal injury claim against the other party's insurance or against them directly. Most of the time, people carry car insurance, which means that you can file a claim with the insurance carrier and negotiate with them directly to get your medical care and financial losses covered.

Sometimes, however, people don't keep up on their insurance. In those cases, you may have to rely on your own savings and insurance to cover your injuries and losses. Then, to get back what you've spent and to hold the other party accountable, you might need to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Get help with your construction litigation case

Construction litigation most often occurs when something happens that ruins a piece of construction or when a job is not getting done. Litigation can be used to hold a construction company liable for mistakes they made or to sue a contractor over violating a contract.

Overall, if there is any issue within the field of construction, then construction litigation attorneys can help you fight back. Whether you're dealing with construction disputes or a problem with a project's developer, it could be helpful to open a case in court.

Here's why an arbitration clause is smart

Contract disputes can end a seemingly perfect project over problems with pay, materials or other issues. In most cases, people who have disputes can work through them and come up with a solution that will help them resolve the issues they're having. Other times, it's necessary to fall on a backup plan.

That plan, for most, is an arbitration clause in their contract. An arbitration clause helps make sure that you or the other party cannot sue one another. It requires you to take disputes to arbitration, which is legally binding, much like going to trial.

Pedestrians can take steps to prevent accidents

In Miami, there are lots of ways that you could get hurt. If you're a pedestrian who is struck by a vehicle, you could suffer serious injuries.

Pedestrians need to be as careful as possible to avoid collisions with motor vehicles. They must always look both ways before crossing any road and try to cross at intersections.

Protect your medical license in Miami, Florida

As a medical provider, you never want to see a patient get hurt. They come to you for a solution to their problems, to recover and heal. Sometimes, though, they simply don't recover the way they should.

Complications are a part of the medical field. Naturally occurring complications are fairly common among patients. It's impossible to know everything they'll be allergic to or to determine if their body can handle a significant surgery. Though you can make your best effort to ensure their safety and a simple recovery, there is no guarantee.

Consider alternatives to trial to resolve your dispute

If you have been fighting through a contract dispute but are getting nowhere fast, one option is to pursue alternative dispute resolution (ADR). Alternative dispute resolution is often used to resolve contract disputes and may be listed in your contract as the preferred method for resolving disputes as they arise.

Alternative dispute resolution is used by the Florida court system and has been in place for over 30 years. The courts are well-connected to the mediation programs offered in the state, and there are thousands of mediators and arbitrators available to help with cases like yours.

Reckless driver causes 2 crashes in North Miami

A personal injury can catch you off guard. Most people don't expect to get hurt, so they don't plan for it. Whether that means missing work, school or other activities, the reality is the same: Your life changes the second you get hurt.

Take, for example, a case that just happened in North Miami. A driver was being pursued by the police in unmarked police vehicles when he crashed his SUV just outside a home around 7:00 p.m. on June 10.

Protect your business against insurance claims

If you work to produce goods for the public, you know that there may be a time when someone sues for an injury. Perhaps they claim that your product wasn't safe or sanitary, leading to a serious injury. Maybe they'll say that your product was mislabeled or intentionally misrepresented.

Whatever the case is, insurance defense is vital. While you carry insurance to cover cases like this, your attorney will make sure that any claim that goes to your insurance company is fair. When a client approaches you with a lawsuit or insurance claim, make sure you let your attorney know right away.

Don't let an unhappy client ruin your business' reputation

When something goes wrong with construction, it's normal for a client to say something to you. If you have done all you can to build something for them that is safe and up to code, you may believe that their complaints are not justified.

In that case, you may soon see that the client turns to the law for help. Even if it's not justified, it's common for people to file claims to try to get back money on construction projects.

Building envelopes and the importance of good construction

A building envelope is a physical separation of a conditioned and unconditioned environment within a building. The envelope needs to be able to withstand water, be safe and be energy efficient.

The purpose of a building envelope is to make a kind of shell around a building, providing additional protection against what's inside. It's essential that anyone looking to buy a property knows if there is an envelope and if it is watertight, efficient and safe. If not, then it needs to be repaired, because not doing so can lower the life of a building.
