Resisting an Officer Without Violence

By: Renee Dial

Something interesting can happen to you in Florida that seems to violate the laws of physics, you can be arrested for resisting arrest without having been under arrest.  The commonly used phrase is actually incorrect as Florida Statute 843.02 is labeled Resisting officer without violence to his or her person”.

To better understand the statute let’s use a hypothetical: Jimmy is fishing on the side of the road and not disobeying any laws.  An officer comes over to Jimmy and orders Jimmy to stop fishing.  Jimmy casts his line again despite the officer ordering him to stop fishing.  The officer then places Jimmy under arrest for resisting an officer without violence. Normally this happens when Jimmy gets belligerent with the officer. Read More

Aisha WhiteI was injured in an auto accident in someone else’s car.  I don’t own a vehicle, so who is going to pay for my medical treatment?

By: Aisha White

In Florida, those of us who own vehicles know that Personal Injury Protection (PIP) is a coverage that we are required to purchase.  This coverage is a very important coverage because it provides insurance coverage for medical treatment, loss of income/services, and death benefits due to an auto accident (see Florida Statute 627.736).  This coverage is extremely important for people injured in auto accidents, because it provides coverage for medical treatment, loss of income, and death benefits too (subject to specific statutory and policy requirements.)

What if I am Hit by an Uninsured Driver While Riding My Bicycle?  Who Pays for my Expenses?

By: Renee Dial

All too often a case comes along where a client was walking or riding a bike and gets hit by a car.  Medical bills pile up as PIP pays 80% of the medical bills up to $10,000 minus the deductible. Now the client is taken to the emergency room by ambulance and receives treatment and the medical bills easily exceed the limits of the PIP policy.  The client is now responsible for the remaining balance.  The client is hit and injured by a car through no fault of their own and now they owe medical bills.

Typically, your personal injury lawyer would submit a demand consisting of the client’s injuries, medical expenses, and any other factors that are necessary to present the claim. Click here to read more.

By Jeffrey R. Nuckols, Esq.

That’s a good question, but why would you want to pay extra to your condo association? Maybe another question to ask first is how your association management feels about early payments or carrying a surplus on the books for your unit. If your association management doesn’t get annoyed about your having a bit of reserve in your account, then it might be something to consider depending on your circumstances.
