Safety advocacy group Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reports that an estimated 300,000 people drive drunk every day in the United States. When you think about driving drunk, you likely first think about someone getting behind the wheel of their passenger car to drive home after having too many drinks. However, it is important to recognize that operating any type of vehicle - not just cars - is extremely dangerous while impaired. It is also important to remember that anyone operating anything while drunk can cause a serious accident that causes you injury.

If you listen to the radio enough you will catch the commercials about loans.  They stress how easy and fast it is to get money today upwards of $5,000.00!  They make it sound like all you are doing is advancing money from your settlement much sooner than waiting for your case to resolve.  This couldn’t be further from the truth.  As a personal injury attorney, I receive calls from clients and loan companies asking for me and my firm to sign off on a loan and assuring that they are paid back once the case settles.  Although there are a few exceptions for these loans, we at Berkowitz & Myer are unilaterally against these anticipation loans and rarely approve them for clients.

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can result from numerous types of accidents and can potentially be a very serious injury. TBIs can be mild (such as a concussion) or highly severe conditions that can leave a victim permanently disabled. While one brain injury experience can be vastly different than another, there is one thing that almost every TBI victim has in common—they require medical attention and treatment. As with any type of medical care, the costs of treating a TBI are often extensive and victims often have overwhelming financial losses.

Frequently, clients ask me the question: "how do I know if creditors are robo calling my cell phone?" As some of you may know, this is an important question to ask because if creditors are robo calling (a/k/a autodialing) your cell phone without your consent, they are potentially violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA"). This could entitle you from up to $500 to $1,500 per call. In this blog, I will share the five telltale signs that indicate when a creditor is most likely autodialing your cell phone.

You have likely heard of people who have fallen behind on their mortgages and have lost their homes in foreclosure. If you are having trouble making your mortgage payments, you may assume that it is inevitable that the same will happen to you, especially if you do not see any way to improve your financial situation in the near future. It is important to realize that there are alternatives to foreclosure and that you should contact an experienced foreclosure defense attorney as soon as possible to discuss your options.

Florida has some of the greatest beaches in the world and July is one of the busiest months for beachgoers. Unfortunately, heavy pedestrian traffic to the beaches, as well as a Florida tradition of vehicles (cars, all-terrain, golf carts) also using the beaches, has been a difficult and even deadly combination for years.

With millions of commuters in heavy traffic every day and accordion-type traffic patterns, rear-end collisions are all-too-common. The nature of a car being struck from behind is that in the blink of an eye, a person’s body is violently jolted forward. Yet even with a relatively small collision, the laws of physics mean that it is all but impossible to stop their head from snapping or literally whipping, forward. The vertebrae of the neck, especially, are vulnerable to what is called whiplash injury (Whiplash Associated Disorder)--or even worse.

Have you ever forgotten to pay your cable bill? What about your credit card bill or car loan?   I think many consumers would emphatically answer “yes” to these questions.  Life happens- maybe you lost your job or went on vacation and forgot to pay the bill.  Or, maybe you received a new debit card and failed to update the electronic, automatic payment.  In any event, this oversight happens to many consumers.  Once you miss a payment, inevitably, the creditor will begin their collection efforts.  In a previous blog, I discussed what to do if they start calling your cell phone.  However, in some circumstances, the creditor will visit your home in an attempt to collect the past due debt.

Everyone has fallen down at some point in their lives. Slipping and falling can be embarrassing but it can also result in surprisingly serious injuries. Anytime you are injured and need to seek medical treatment, you can incur medical bills, lost income from missing work for medical appointments or during recovery, as well as other losses. It is always wise to discuss your possible right to compensation after a slip and fall accident with a personal injury attorney.
