Often after a motor vehicle crash occurs a police officer will come to the scene to conduct an investigation. At the conclusion of that investigation the police officer may or may not issue a traffic ticket. It's extremely important for you to call an attorney regardless of the outcome of this investigation.

Accidents happen and they can happen to you. Other people don’t always follow the laws or use good
judgment. Just because they're being careless doesn't mean you need to be a victim of the indifference to safety.

Some of the most difficult cases we handle involve children. Recently a 15 year old heart transplant
patient told her mother that she wasn't feeling well. Her mother took her to the emergency room.
"I am not right. I need to see someone immediately. I feel as though I am dying", she told them.
It wasn't until 4 hours later that the cardiologist finally arrived. Check out the rest of this story in our
podcast as told by Medical Malpractice Attorney Sandra Bucha on our YouTube Channel.
Board Certified Trial Attorney Derek Reams talks about why it is important to find a lawyer with a reputation for taking cases to trial.
With the internet, Google, Yahoo and all of the social media outlets that we have at our disposal, how do you pick an attorney that's going to best represent you and handle your case? My suggestion would be to call that attorney directly. Ask them a variety of questions. Ask how many times has that law firm handled your type of case? Ask if that law firm in...
An “Examination Under Oath” is the first time the insurance company gets to talk to you “on the record” regarding your accident and the medical treatment you’ve received surrounding that accident. Often, these examinations are to help the insurance company figure out if they're going to pay the full personal injury protection benefits or to value any future settlements you may be entitled to should you carry under insured motorist coverage on your own policy.
These examinations are nothing t...
As your case proceeds through the litigation process the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure allow for your
insurance company to send you to a doctor of their choosing for examination. Often our clients will
question why the insurance company sends them to doctor when they can get all the information they
need from the doctors who have been treating them for their injuries since the accident. Basically it
gives your insurance company the opportunity for a full evaluation of your case and the opp...
Florida's PIP, (P – I – P) personal injury protection. It’s a mandatory part of your auto policy in the state of Florida. At one point it meant, if you were injured in an auto accident you could count on $10,000 worth of coverage for your medical bills and or your lost wages. It isn't any longer.
Now in order for your PIP to be used to pay your medical bills, your injuries have to be declared as an emergency. You have to have sought emergency treatment at the outset of injuries. If you go to ...
You may have read articles in your local newspaper or even online about doctors who seem to be over prescribing pain medication. In the state of Florida they’re often called “Pill Mill” doctors. They seem to recklessly prescribe medications to certain people who come in complaining of pain. Tragically we have often have cases where a family member comes and says, "I told the doctor I begged with the doctor please stop. My family member, my husband, my son is becoming addicted to this pain med...
Road Rage, you hear about it all the time but you never think that it will happen to you. We have seen
so many examples of road rage lately. It's becoming a terrible phenomenon throughout the United States and oddly enough, it seems to be quite prevalent here in Florida.
I spend a lot of time on the road and I don't like seeing people cut me off. I don't like seeing people
squeeze in to the bit of area that I leave between my car and the car in front of me in order to be safe.
But, I don't wa...

Many of our clients have family members whom they eventually have to place into nursing home facilities or assisted living facilities. The decisions family members must make are difficult at best. They want to be sure that these facilities treat their loved ones with dignity and respect. They want to be sure that these facilities provide the proper care, nutrition, and oversight necessary for their safe residence in these facilities. The Florida Statutes detail the rights of those in the care...
Eyewitness testimony has always been vital to determining how an accident occurred. More often than
not though, eyewitnesses can see things in differing ways. One driver says, "I was going thirty five miles
an hour". The other driver says, "No that's not true you are going at least fifty five miles an hour". The
jury is then asked to believe which driver is the most credible in determining who was at fault.
Technology is changing that now.
Many newer motor vehicles have black boxes similar to...

your family and your friends. These details are generally referred to as, “Pain ...

Communication with your doctor after an accident is key to a proper settlement of your personal injury case. Because Florida is a “no fault” state when it comes to auto insurance, means that you are on the hook for your own bills as a result of an auto accident, not the at-fault driver. Whether it's a sore neck in the morning or stiffness during the day, anything that has occurred after the accident could be related to the accident. Keep in contact with your doctor. It could make all the diff...
Just because a lawyer gets a large settlement for you doesn't mean it goes in your pocket. Your medical
bills trump that. See how a good lawyer can help.
Here in Florida, our courts require personal injury cases to go to mediation prior to trial. The mediation
process is simply where we sit down with the attorney for the insurance company, a representative with
the insurance company itself and a mediator. Both sides give a factual overview of their version of the
case and then we actually begin discussing settlement of your case.
Your case has been worked up to the point where you've received your medical care. Your deposition
has been taken b...
Many of the malpractice cases stem from clients whose doctors have diagnosed their condition
properly, but have treated their condition improperly. Occasionally doctors make mistakes. What are
the lessons to be learned? What can YOU DO?
It's a common misconception that a deposition is simply a “practice run for trial”. In fact, the exact opposite is the case. If you tell your story to the insurance company, show them what you've gone through, show them how your life has been changed from this accident and provide a strong deposition, many times a trial not even the schedule, because the insurance company will settle your case. This is why taking notes, keeping a journal, keeping a log, whatever you want to call it, is so vit...
Sandra Bucha, Attorney with Q Auto & Injury Attorneys has seen more than her fair share of medical malpractice cases. She shares this advice.
I often get calls from people that simply do not want to file a malpractice case against a particular doctor. But, they do have questions about whether he made a mistake. I find myself quite often telling them, "I understand that you like this particular doctor. I understand that you've grown to trust this particular doctor. But, even your doctor can ma...
Your medical treatment status can be confusing. Your doctor might say you’ve reached maximum
medical improvement or M.M.I. In your injury case MMI doesn’t mean you stop treatment. Attorney
Edward Izquierdo has the details.
Companies want to lend you money against your personal injury claim. The interest on these loans is astronomical. When your case is settled they're like buzzards ready to pick that settlement clean. In the state of Florida it is legal. Avoid it!
