What Happens After the Wrongful Death of a Child?

Damages can be an uncomfortable topic of discussion during a lawsuit that involves the wrongful death of a child. In these cases, there is an incalculable degree of mental anguish, pain and suffering. There may be no exact calculation for damages. Our attorneys present the facts to a jury, and they come up with the amount in damages based on their own knowledge and experiences. In this video, personal injury attorney Patrick Montoya describes damages after the wrongful death of a child. Video Transcription Damages with children can become very difficult. And frankly damages in any lawsuit especially due to mental anguish, or pain and suffering, there’s no exact calculation for that.

Do Teens Understand the Consequences of Distracted Driving?

The consequences of distracted driving, particularly texting while driving, have been devastating in Florida and the entire country. In this video, attorney Julie Braman Kane explains that teenagers must understand that it only takes a split second to cause a distracted driving car accident that seriously injures or kills an innocent person. Parents should speak to their children and refrain from texting while driving themselves to set an example. Video Transcription: I’m the mother of a 16-year-old. He drives. He got his license almost a year ago. Kids think they’re invincible and they believe that nothing can ever happen to them.

What we really hope to do with this program is to prevent horrible unnecessary loss of lives by teaching teens and giving…

Does Being a Former Federal Prosecutor Affect Your Personal Injury Practice?

In this video, attorney Curt Miner explains how his work as a former federal prosecutor is similar, in many ways, to the practice of personal injury law. Both practices involve holding responsible parties accountable for actions or inactions that have harmed innocent people. Video Transcription: I think there’s a lot in common between being a federal prosecutor and being a plaintiff’s lawyer, like I am now. As a federal prosecutor, you are the one who’s responsible for building a case. You have the burden of proof. You have to prove that someone else did something wrong. As your prosecutor, you’re trying to prove someone committed a crime, and as a prosecutor you’re trying to right a wrong, you’re trying to do justice. I think a lot of that’s true as a plaintiff’s lawyer, too. The burden is on you. You have to put together the case. You have to muster…

Do People File Meaningless Lawsuits, and What is Responsible Litigation?

At our law firm, we believe in responsible litigation. We hold large businesses accountable when their practices or defective products harm innocent people. It is our job as attorneys to advocate for our clients who have been hurt and to make our community a safer place for everyone. In this video, attorney Patrick Montoya explains how his firm focuses on litigation that improves public safety. Video Transcription: I think litigation lawyers get a bad name. I think people often hear the term personal injury attorney, for example, and they think if you file lawsuit then somebody automatically sends you a check. I found the exact opposite to be the case and to be reality. Reality is, is big companies who do bad things, they are very well protected. They’re protected by an army of lawyers that’s going to be there. And even when they’ve done wrong, and it’s clear wrongdoing,…

How Do I Know If a Defective Drug Caused an Injury?

If you suspect a defective drug caused an injury, get to a doctor or the emergency room at once. Then, when you are able, speak to a lawyer with experience representing people harmed or killed by dangerous medications. In this video, attorney Patrick Montoya offers an example of a drug that injured many of his clients, and why these types of injuries occur as a result of negligence by the pharmaceutical industry. Video Transcription: Often times, pharmaceutical injury cases have what’s called a signature injury. There’s a particular injury that is associated with the drug. For example, the Vioxx cases. Vioxx was a painkiller but what they found with Vioxx was it caused heart attacks and strokes, and certain types of strokes and certain types of heart attacks. So once the problem became studied, you started realizing there were certain signature injuries that went along with that. And different product…

Commercial real estate owners have a duty to prevent people from being injured on business property. In this video, attorney Joseph Kalbac explains a case where a truck driver was making a routine delivery to a business, when air conditioning units fell on him from a forklift. These types of preventable accidents should never occur. Video Transcription: We handle a lot of premises liability cases. Cases where because of the negligent way that the business is run or the premise is organized, people get injured and sometimes very seriously. We’re handling a case right now where a truck driver delivered a load of commercial air conditioning units. And while he was waiting to fill out the paperwork and receive the paper work, the forklift that had the air conditioning units loaded onto it, drove by him and all of the units literally fell on him.
