What do medical marijuana laws mean to those who drive on Florida’s roads? Very little, in the grand scheme of things. Under current Florida law, those found to be driving under the influence of marijuana will face criminal charges just like someone driving while intoxicated on alcohol.

Even those who are legally allowed to use marijuana medically can face criminal charges, and those charges can lead to a fine of up to $1000 and even jail time – and that’s for a first offense. The reasons are obvious – cannabis negatively impacts your ability to drive safely in numerous ways

Helping Yourself Get Financial Compensation After An Accident

Helping Yourself Get Financial Compensation After An AccidentWhen an accident occurs, it can be difficult to know just what steps are the right ones during your recovery.

While your insurance coverage as a Florida resident will likely provide up to $10,000 in personal injury protection, it only pays 80% of your total medical bills. And when you consider all of the additional, higher costs that can come from an accident it becomes clear that getting more help is often needed.

These days when you see people walking the streets head down, we no longer assume they are reading an email or a text, because they are probably playing the augmented reality game, Pokémon Go. So what exactly is it?

It’s a game that can be accessed on our mobile devices where players use GPS capability to find, capture, battle, and train virtual creatures, who appear on the screen as if they were in the same location as the player. Sounds fun. But can also this running around in real life battle be harmful?

Think about it. If you are the player – you could bump into, fall into, or crash into a myriad of objects and/or people. You could cause injury to yourself, which is bad; but it could be worse to cause injury to others. Playing a game could get you in big trouble!

For over 25 years, world renowned portrait artist Trevor Goring has captured the Images of Justice by visually exploring the history and symbolism of law through original paintings to those who have dedicated their lives to maintaining the fundamental values of a fair and balanced criminal and civil justice system accessible to all.

I am honored and thank Trevor for including me in the excellent company of the Trial Lawyer Portrait Gallery.

Motorists only have 2 weeks to visit a medical professional following their accident, or they forfeit PIP benefits. With some injuries not presenting themselves for weeks after an accident, this can be a serious problem.

Only certain types of medical professionals are allowed to be filed with PIP. Chiropractors, massage therapists, and other medical experts may not be covered and thus be off limits to those using PIP.

For more than twenty-five years, I have personally represented thousands of people who have been injured due to motor vehicle accidents and other causes, and have seen a variety of types of medical care and treatment available to accident victims. Some types of treatment you may be familiar with, but today there are many new alternative procedures, particularly with respect to neck and back injuries that are worth noting.
