Housing Discrimination and Reasonable Accommodation, Part II

By Jeffrey R. Nuckols, Esq.

The Florida Fair Housing Act (FFHA), like the Federal Fair Housing Act (FHA), provides that it is unlawful to discriminate in the rental of a dwelling to a renter with a handicap including discrimination by refusing “make reasonable accommodations in rules, policies, practices, or services, when such accommodations may be necessary to afford such person equal opportunity to use and enjoy a dwelling.” § 760.23(9)(b) Fla. Stat. (2015). Click the title above to read more.

No attorney can accurately tell you what your personal injury case is worth.  If they tell you how much your personal injury case is worth at the initial consultation beware.

There are a lot of factors that affect the value of your claim.  At an initial consult we would typically discuss the process of evaluation and filing your personal injury claim.  One of the main factors we have to look at is whether there is coverage to compensate you for your injuries.

Coverage comes in all forms.  I explained coverage in one of my earlier discussions.  Click this link.  Coverage is important as most defendants do not have the money to pay out on a claim. The defendant may have a nice home and retirement accounts but most of those are untouchable under Florida law.  Read More

What Is Strict Liability Anyway?

By Jeffrey R. Nuckols, Esq.

When it comes to torts, negligence might be one of the first things you think about. A very simple and rough idea of what negligence is could be whether someone did something he should not have done with the result that someone else was injured or her property was damaged. Once in a while, though, you might hear the words “strict liability” when someone has been injured. Click on the title above to read more.

Injury and McDonald’s coffee, the facts.

By: Renee Dial

All too often I end up having a conversation with someone that claims personal injury claimants and their attorneys are what’s wrong with our country.  I typically listen while they vent about slip and fall accidents and that all people claiming personal injury are exaggerating or lying about their personal injuries and pain and without fail we end up talking about the McDonald’s coffee case.

The McDonalds coffee case is one of those cases that a person that hates attorneys can really get behind, it has the ridiculousness of someone spilling coffee on themselves while driving and getting millions of dollars from suing because of hot coffee.  Read More

Pro Bono Service

By Jeffrey R. Nuckols, Esq.

Lawyers in Florida are encouraged to employ some of their resources to improve access to legal services for underserved people. One of the ways that lawyers do that is through pro bono service where the lawyer provides some legal service without charge or even at a reduced charge. That’s an example of using the resources of training and experience. Sometimes lawyers do it through giving financial resources toward improving access to legal service, and that’s an example of using financial resources. Click here to read more.

By: Aisha White

We have all heard stories in the news about people receiving outrageous sums of alimony after a divorce, but is it really that easy to strike it rich?  In Florida, alimony is governed under Fla. Stat. 61.08 .  There are different types of alimony available to parties here in Florida, including: Bridge-the-Gap alimony, Rehabilitative alimony, Durational alimony, and Permanent alimony. There is also a type of alimony called alimony Pendente Lite that is available while the actual divorce is still pending.

Before making an alimony award determination, the court has to first determine whether either party needs alimony AND whether either party has the ability to pay alimony. If the Read More
