FAQ’s Mediation

Q. WHAT IF MY CASE INVOLVES MULTIPLE PARTIES?

For a trained litigator or mediator, this is not an issue. In fact, my conference room seats 26, and I’m happy to travel to your location, if preferred. I recognize that individuals might have specific requests for their case, and I strive to make them comfortable and confident however I can.

Q. WHAT IS DESIGN PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY?

A variety of talented individuals, like engineers, surveyors and architects, work hard to make visions become reality. Unfortunately, not every project ends smoothly and some professionals are accused of being liable for errors, omissions or negligent design. Having an attorney who is familiar with the work and course of business for design professionals is helpful in two senses: you’ll have representation if you need it, but you can also benefit from general business advice regarding contracts and negotiations. Don’t let your professional reputation become at risk: speak to an attorney about a liability issue sooner
rather than later.

Q. WHAT’S AT STAKE TO BE PROVEN IN AN ACCIDENT CASE?

There are two things to consider in an accident case, whether it involves automobiles, trucks, motorcycles or other kinds of vehicles. The first thing to factor is in liability. Who caused the crash? What laws were broken in the causation of that crash? The second thing to consider is injuries suffered by the victim. Your accident case will require that you prove negligence on behalf of another party that resulted in damages (injuries) done to you. Few cases ever make it to trial, which is why you need an attorney who is skilled in negotiating fair compensation for your injuries, whether you end up in court or not.

Q. AFTER AN ACCIDENT, SHOULD I SIGN PAPERWORK FROM AN INSURANCE COMPANY?

If you have been involved in some kind of accident, your insurance company might want you to sign some paperwork pretty early on in the case. You might be under the impression that the insurance company is working for you, but keep in mind that an insurance company is working for its own bottom line. This means that not all paperwork presented to you is in your best interest. Insurance company employees are professionals in their work and as such have far great knowledge of value of a claim. Before signing anything, communicate with your attorney.

Q. HOW SHOULD I SELECT AN ATTORNEY FOR MY PERSONAL INJURY, PRODUCT LIABILITY, OR WORKPLACE DISCRIMINATION CASE?

There are several factors that should go into your decision, including experience, confidence in the attorney, the track record and familiarity with your type of case, and overall impression. If you have been injured or discriminated against, your claim is your opportunity to “right the wrong” and receive compensation. You should only entrust your case to an accomplished and dedicated attorney. Schedule a consultation first to learn more about both the attorney and your case. Attorney’s have different styles and demeanors, ask around and do not feel you have to hire the first one to whom you talk about your case.

Q. WHAT IS WORKPLACE DISCRIMINATION?

There are many different actions that can fall under the umbrella of workplace discrimination, including failure to promote an employee, refusing to hire an employee, or otherwise discriminating against an employee. This is any action of “less favorable treatment’ that results from an individual’s pregnancy status, gender, sexual orientation, age, race, national origin, religion or disability. Attempting to work in an environment where you are being discriminated against is a major challenge. Hiring an attorney to fight for your rights can make your life easier and give you some peace of mind.

Q. HOW SOON DO I NEED AN ATTORNEY FOR A PERSONAL INJURY MATTER?

The sooner you speak to an attorney, the better, and this is for a few reasons. First of all, most personal injury cases have a statute of limitations of two years, meaning that if you attempt to file a case after the deadline, your case will be dismissed. If you are in Florida you have more time to file your lawsuit as the statute of limitations is four years. Since personal injury cases can be complex, it’s highly recommended that you retain an attorney sooner rather than later. Finally, having an attorney at your side can greatly reduce your anxiety and prepare you for what to expect.

Q. WHAT IS A PRODUCT LIABILITY CASE?

A product liability case refers to a situation where a company has generated a defective or unsafe product that is deemed “unreasonably dangerous”. There are three different categories under which a product can be classified as unreasonably dangerous: through a manufacturing defect or defective condition in a single product, a defect in the design of a product that makes all those products dangerous, and finally a product that does not include adequate warnings or labels to make customers aware of potentially unsafe aspects of the product.
