Legal Answers
Q. I’m the passenger in a hit and run. What are my rights
A: You have a lot of rights. It really depends upon what your specific question is. Were you injured? If so, you would have the ability to go after those who are at fault for your injuries, including the driver and of course you could potentially use Florida PIP. If you present a more specific question, I'd be very happy to answer it as best as I can.
Q. A guy hit my car, we chose to settle private..PLEASE READ (Evidence)
A: It’s always best practices to contact the police. Especially if this accident was not your fault, it’s always best to go through the other person’s auto insurance. I’ve seen time and again how handling it “private” backfires. If you are concerned you should file a police report.
Q. My 2 year old granddaughter fell through second story Bedroom window when the screen ripped open from the bottom.
A: I'm very sorry to hear about the situation. This is a very fact intensive issue. Property management and/or the landlord could in fact have some liability for this accident. If that were the case and they were found to be responsible then it is possible that their insurance would compensate your granddaughter for her injuries.
