  • If a doctor gives you the wrong medication is he automatically eligible for medical malpractice?

    If another doctor and medical director in the same facility says he was wrong?

    Howard’s Answer

    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.

  • If you get into a car accident why do you have to report the incident to the police?

    Why can't simply contacting your insurance company suffice?

    Howard’s Answer

    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.

    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.

    Howard’s Answer

    I agree with the lawyer above. It is impossible for anyone to evaluate whether you have a case from a posting like this on a website. A lawyer needs to look at the medical records and make a determination as to whether anything is actionable. Good luck.

    Howard’s Answer

    I would without hesitation hire counsel. An attorney working on the matter for you will help to maximize any recovery. Also, based on my experience with cases involving taxi companies, I have found them to be very difficult to deal with and have had to file suit on many of the cases in order to obtain full value for my clients. I think the other two lawyers who have answered this question raise good points. I would not go at this alone. I wish you the best.

    Howard’s Answer

    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.
