Florida attracts people from all over the world with its endless beaches and year round tropical weather. Unfortunately, an overabundance of water in our state can have a destructive effect. Floridians know far too well the destructive power of water, whether it is through floods, tropical rains or hurricanes. Our homes are under a constant threat of damage from water. To mitigate the risk of damage, property owners purchase insurance policies that are meant to mitigate the risk of a loss caused by water.

Unfortunately, the insurance policies we purchase tend to be very lengthy and complicated documents intended to be confusing to the policy holder. Seeking funds to repair your home after a loss from the insurance company is far more complicated than simply making a claim. The insurance policy requires certain steps to be taken to make a valid claim. The instructions a policy holder has to follow in order to make a claim are known as post loss obligations.

We are in the middle of the season of giving. Gifts are exchanged between family members, friends and co-workers. Some of the most popular presents for the holidays are technological gadgets meant to entertain us in our homes. Modern electronics consist of sophisticated parts manufactured by any number of companies. A defective electrical device can cause a fire and a serious personal injury. However, improper use or faulty installation can also play a part in the cause of the property damage or personal injury.

In cases of damage from a defective product several parties may share liability. Primarily, the liability may lie with the manufacturer of the product that malfunctioned. The theory of recovery in these cases would point to defective manufacturing process or defective design.

Our homes tend to be our most valuable asset as a place to live as well as an investment for retirement. It is natural to want to insure your valuable asset. However, when a home suffers damage, most homeowners fail to report the loss to their insurance companies simply because they do not believe a loss may be covered. Some make a claim but fail to go any further when the insurance company rejects the claim. When your home suffers damage, it is important to consult a professional to find out your rights under the policy.

A large portion of homeowners dealing with damage fail to report it because they do not believed the loss is large enough or do not know it may be covered by the policy. Some homeowners attempt to make repairs themselves or hire a professional to make the repairs. When renewing your policy, the insurance company may want to inspect your property and may be less likely to renew the policy or may do so at a higher rate when previously unreported damage is discovered.

We have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our readers. Many of you have requested additional information on personal injury. One of the complexities of this area of law is knowing where to assign the fault for personal injury in a car accident.

It is easy to assign fault for personal injury to a single individual or an entity, however the reality may be more complicated. Personal injury may not necessarily involve a single event but may be continuous. An individual may be involved in a car accident where another driver failed to yield the right of way and caused a crash. However, faulty brakes may have contributed to the cause of the accident. Moreover, the safety systems in the victim’s vehicle may have been defective. Furthermore, the physician treating the injured victim may make a mistake and exacerbate the injuries or cause additional harm.

What To Know If You Have Been Injured In a Truck Accident

By The Perazzo Law Firm

The State of Florida, due to its geography, is a center of trade given its number of ports and airports. A high volume of goods moves into and out of the state every day. Most of the transportation over land involves semi trucks, which can carry everything from produce to heavy construction equipment. Large transport vehicles are far more difficult to maneuver and operate than lighter passenger vehicles given their size and turn radius. In addition, the height of the trucks, long stopping distance and the extent of the blind spots of the driver make collisions with passenger vehicles far more fatal then other types of car accidents.
