Tractor-trailer accidents are quite common on Florida roads, but while a majority of them can be traced back to driver error, that ‘error’ is not always the truck driver’s.

Fraud In Florida Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Centers

By Rinaldo Law Group |

Substance abuse is a nationwide problem in the United States, and Florida has become a mecca of sorts for rehabilitation centers.

By Rinaldo Law Group |

The Emergency Medical Treatment & Labor Act (EMTALA) is a federal law passed in 1986 which states that emergency rooms must stabilize and treat all visitors, regardless of their insurance (or lack thereof) or general ability to pay.

The “Eggshell Plaintiff” Rule & Minor Injury Cases

By Rinaldo Law Group |

When an accident happens, it is a common-law legal maxim that the defendant must ‘take their plaintiff as they find them.’ What this means is that different individuals may suffer differing degrees of harm during the same accident, and even if the degree of injury is much more severe than the average person might… Read More »
