Safety advocacy group Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reports that an estimated 300,000 people drive drunk every day in the United States. When you think about driving drunk, you likely first think about someone getting behind the wheel of their passenger car to drive home after having too many drinks. However, it is important to recognize that operating any type of vehicle - not just cars - is extremely dangerous while impaired. It is also important to remember that anyone operating…

With millions of commuters in heavy traffic every day and accordion-type traffic patterns, rear-end collisions are all-too-common. The nature of a car being struck from behind is that in the blink of an eye, a person’s body is violently jolted forward. Yet even with a relatively small collision, the laws of physics mean that it is all but impossible to stop their head from snapping or literally whipping, forward. The vertebrae of the neck, especially, are vulnerable to what is called…

While any type of car crash can be serious or even deadly, crashes in which a vehicle rolls over can be particularly dangerous. Some vehicles may roll over more easily than others due to a high center of gravity. However, in order to know your legal rights as a rollover accident victim, you must examine what caused the vehicle to roll over in the first place. The following are some common causes of rollover crashes.

You have likely heard of people who have fallen behind on their mortgages and have lost their homes in foreclosure. If you are having trouble making your mortgage payments, you may assume that it is inevitable that the same will happen to you, especially if you do not see any way to improve your financial situation in the near future. It is important to realize that there are alternatives to foreclosure and that you should contact an experienced foreclosure defense attorney as soon as…

An Attorney Can Help You Explore Alternatives to Foreclosure - Berkowitz & Myer

Ok so you’ve been injured due to no fault of your own.  You hire a lawyer and you begin the process of a personal injury case.  This is a traumatic experience.  What do we all do when we go through a traumatic experience?  We post about it on Facebook, or Instagram, or MySpace (showing my age here).  You know, so our friends can share in our misery.  Ok maybe that’s not why, but we post about it nonetheless.  People like to post just about everything they do.

Social Media is not your friend in a personal injury case - Berkowitz & Myer

Head-on collisions are widely considered to be the most dangerous kind of car crash because of the high rate of fatality. A head-on collision happens when the front of one car collides with the front of another and this usually occurs when both cars are in motion. Even with crumple zones and bumpers, head-on collisions can cause severe and often fatal injuries. With a reported 18 percent of non-intersection accidents being head-on, it is important to recognize the common causes of these…

I used to be one of the many people with dystonia who experience panic attacks, and it felt like torture.

In general, property owners are obligated to keep their properties safe for anyone who might visit them. And should they have a swimming pool on their property, that obligation extends to the condition of the pool itself and almost anyone who might use it.

Florida has some of the greatest beaches in the world and July is one of the busiest months for beachgoers. Unfortunately, heavy pedestrian traffic to the beaches, as well as a Florida tradition of vehicles (cars, all-terrain, golf carts) also using the beaches, has been a difficult and even deadly combination for years.

One of the most common questions I get as a local St. Petersburg bankruptcy attorney is whether student loans could be discharged in a bankruptcy. The conventional answer out there is typically “no.” The little known answer is actually “yes” in certain circumstances, albeit rare and a difficult process where the borrower has to demonstrate that the loan has created an undue financial hardship (see our previous article “Student Loans and Bankruptcy” by St. Petersburg attorney Jesse…
