What Is Cap On Wrongful Death,Lawsuits,In Florida?
Wife Died, According To Witnesses, Because Paramedic Wouldn'T Try And Revive Her. Every Body Doesn'T Want To Talk About It. Except The Witnesses, & Their Upset. I Thought Maybe It Wasn'T Worth An Attorney'S Time?
It looks like the wrongful death cap in Florida is $250,000-350,000.
It might be worth talking to an attorney to see if the bereaved might have a case. Just remember, that his report on what happened might be tainted by his emotions, which is understandable and expected.
The paramedic might not have revived her because she was obviously dead for some time...it would have been pointless to try. In his grief-stricken state, he might have easily missed the signs of death. A non-medically trained witness wouldn't know what to look for, and might assume that the paramedic is being negligent when they really aren't.
Still, there's no harm in checking with an attorney to find out if there's a case to be had. Usually, most initial consultations are free.
Hope this helps...

If I had to guess this is a personal injury firm?
Does this firm do a lot of advertising on billboards, TV etc?
Many of these firms, will have "runners" who pick up all the police reports of accidents, that will have all the information of any "injured" party that is not at fault for an accident. So, my guess would be that you would be gong to these people and have them sign up as clients for their personal injury. Or, you could be sent to a hospital to find "new" clients that were injured and try to sign them up.
I have seen many ads that state, we will come to you, so you would need to go to them to have them sign a contract, which would be sales by obtaining new clients for the firm.
IF, this is one of those firms, they are known as "ambulance chasing firms".
Where Could I Look To Find A Lawyer That Is Not From De But Can Practice Law In The Hip Pa Privacy Act?
I Have A Case In De But I Feel All The Lawyers In De Work With The Hospitals Already And I Dont Think They Will Get Me What I Really Deserve.
If the case is in Delaware, then you need to have at least "local counsel" in Delaware, since each state requires that you be a member of the bar to practice there.
(Because of the strong history of corporate law in Delaware, Delaware's requirements are stricter than other states'.)
If you find a lawyer there, he cannot have a conflict of interest... that is, he cannot represent the party you're suing now, and he cannot have previously represented the party on the same or similar matter you're suing on now. .
Don't put all lawyers in one basket-- I'm sure there are many attorneys who do plaintiffs' HIPPA work in Delaware,a nd you'd be MUCH better off having a local attorney than someone from out of state.
Call the Delaware State Bar Association and ask for a referral for someone who does Plaintiffs' HIPPA work.
How Can I Stop A Law Office From Calling My House?
I'Ve Been Getting Calls Every Day From A Law Office That'S Not For Me Or Anybody Listed Under My House Or Phone Number. The Person Is A Family Member But Does Not Reside With Me. I Told The Lady There Is No One Listed Under My Roof Under That Name Or Under Our Number. But She Continues To Harass Me With Phone Calls And Keeps Leaving Me Messages. I Told This Family Member To Give Them A Call And Settle It But She Said She Already Did And Yet They Still Continues To Harass Me Every Day With Calls And Messages. Can I Report Them To Someone And Make Them Stop Calling? I Don'T Want To Change Numbers Cause Everybody Knows My Number And It Would Be Too Much To Change Everything Like Credit Cards, Bills, Banks, Doctors Office Etc For Just Their Harassment Calls.
Block the number the law office is calling from.
Your telephone provider should have a way to do this fairly easily.
In the alternative, give the woman ALL of your family member's contact information. Your relative is lying to you about dealing with the issue, just as you are lying to the law firm. If you simply give the law firm new numbers to call, I guarantee that she will stop calling you. But if you want to be uncooperative, they have the right to keep calling.
I Was Agrivated Assulted, Left With Brain Injurys And One Def Ear, How Do I Sue This Guy Who Is 4 Years Older?
Get a real lawyer. Don't get your legal advice from online message boards. Your lawyer will tell you exactly what you need to do.
Yes, they are expensive, but with something like this you need one.
Question For Legal Assistants And Law Clerks!?
I'M Looking To Get Into The Field And Would Love Some Advice: How'D You Get Started? Did You Have Any Education That Helped You Get Into The Field Or Just Start? What Do You Think Of Your Jobs? What Are The Hardest/Easiest Things You Do?
Regarding being a Legal Assistant and/or a Law Clerk: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with >>>BACHELORS degrees from traditional colleges/universities.
THE hardest thing about this vocational field is finding a job. There are already simply way too many Legal Assistants and Law Clerks. There just are no available jobs in this field.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions.
We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing; it is in absolute CRISIS!!! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software and law books in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law: *myth: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves mountains of routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track EVERY activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), *myth: being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is FICTION - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), *myth: law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement/compromise), *myth: as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), *myth: guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Regarding being a Legal Assistant and/or a Law Clerk: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with >>>BACHELORS<<< degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (>>I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking (at an alarming rate), many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we already have too many law schools. We are STILL in a Recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember>>> law schools are BUSINESSES - their TOP concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor!!!*****
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about future job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.
