    At our firm, we believe in complete transparency. You are entitled to know what costs have been incurred on your case. Although I would not be "worried", I think you should forward a letter or some form of formal written correspondence to the lawyer requesting that information. It is your case and the lawyer has a duty to keep you informed.

    On certain occasions, physicians may tell you something but are hesitant to put it in writing because they do not want it evaluated by others. In addition, some physicians are disinclined to get involved in treatment if it involves even the slightest chance of future litigation. Rest assured, nothing that you or your family did was the cause of this.

    Under Florida law, it is mandatory to contact the police. In addition, a police report that is favorable to your side of the issues can be extremely beneficial in helping to make a claim against a negligent party. It is always prudent to have the facts and circumstances of a motor vehicle accident detailed and preserved in a formal matter.

    I would recommend that you make a claim under the UM policy. You should also contact a lawyer at once. As was stated above, accepting certain monies from one policy may impact your recovery from another policy. I am located in South Florida and am happy to speak with you. Good luck.

    Although the bar may be the obvious negligent party, it may be best to investigate whether the construction and/or engineering of the sink was done within code. The contractor/engineer may wind up being the true focus of any claim especially if they are insured. I wish you the best.

    I would certainly hire a traffic ticket attorney to fight the citation. Often there are technical deficiencies in what is recorded on the ticket by the police officer that can be grounds for dismissal. Without the benefit of counsel, people are not aware that a citation is subject to dismissal when the officer fails to include certain pertinent and necessary information. I wish you luck.

    There are elements to every negligence claim including medical negligence claims. Those include duty, breach, causation and damages. Although a physician may have prescribed you with the wrong medication, if you suffered no injury or damages as a result you probably have no claim. Of course, I would need more information in order to give an absolute opinion one way or the other. I hope this helps. Good luck.

    I think you need to provide more information in order for me to respond. However, I am a firm believer that it is always good to consult with an attorney of you believe you were wronged - especially by an insurance company. Good luck.

    Based on your description of the events, it seems that the other driver is at fault. I would be interested to see what was reported in the police report by the on scene officer. Good Luck.
