Many auto accidents are caused by the driver texting or talking on a cell phone while driving. In Florida, courts all over the state are allowing for punitive damage claims due to texting and/or talking on a cell phone and causing an accident that severely injures and often takes the lives of innocent people.
In a negligence case there are two types of damages: economic and non-economic.
You may need to present copies of records to show what your actual losses have been, are and will be.
Non-economic damages are damages for loss of enjoyment for the capacity of life, pain & suffering, mental strain, fatigue, loss of consortium (claim of a loved one’s loss of companionship, love, affection, etc.) and punitive damages. These damages are not based on a record that can be shown but on real emotion and feeling. These damages are quite often the larger damages awarded and recovered.

Every day more and more people are injured in Florida while riding motorcycles. In Florida, an operator of a motorcycle is not required to wear a helmet, only protective eye covering. Accidents on motorcycles can have a devastating effect on the lives of those injured and their family.
P.I.P. coverage does not apply to motorcycles in Florida and therefore an injured party from a motorcycle accident can seek damages for economic and non-economic damages without having to pass an injury threshold, as is required in a P.I.P. coverage case.
Coverage for damages can come from many different areas:
– The owner of the vehicle that caused the accident
– The owner of the motorcycle if driver is not the owner
– The driver of the motorcycle’s insurance (uninsured / underinsured motorist coverage)
– Leasing company
You need an attorney that knows how to locate the coverage you need to help you recover damages for your losses.
Property Damage to your motorcycle can be difficult to fully recover. Property damage claims to motorcycle owners are very important when your bike requires replacement or substantial repairs. The insurance company wants to settle for the cheapest parts and replacement they can, don’t let them. Let the attorneys at Mowrey Law Firm help you recover all that you deserve.

The trucking industry is under a strain to deliver their loads at a break neck pace and innocent people are severely injured and killed as a result.

Quite often the liability will be that of the following: the driver, owner, employer, leasing company, trailer manufacturer, trailer owner, lessor of tractor and/or trailer and even the owner of the product or freight being transported.
The hiring practices of the trucking company, the safety program and the maintenance records are vital to analysis of the liability.
