Hurricane Damages: Is your insurance paying for it?


As a native Floridian, I have lived through so many storms I can’t even count them all. From Hurricane Charlie to Andrew, and Ivan to Hurricane Irma, the State of Florida has taken its fair share of beatings. While the most important thing to us all during a storm is the health and wellness of our families; the second most important, and the largest investment most Floridians will make in their lives, are their homes.

What do I do if my home is damaged by a storm?

If your home is mortgaged, and let’s be honest, most people do not own their home free and clear, you are required by your lender to have home owner’s insurance.  When your home is damaged, depending on circumstances to be discussed later, you should file an insurance claim with them to cover the damages from the storm.

What is homeowner’s insurance?

Home owners insurance is an insurance policy, similar to your car insurance. Unlike your car insurance, which only protects against crashes and other obscure damage, your homeowner’s insurance policy can cover a lot of different things. 

It can include your roof, your siding, fire, damage from fallen trees, damage to secondary structures, personal property damage, and the list goes on. Your individual insurance policy needs to be reviewed to see exactly what your policy actually covers. Because there is no mandate to make certain things covered, like with car insurance, homeowner’s insurances vary greatly from company to company and from house to house.


Does the homeowner’s policy cover flood?

In most cases, if your home is not in a flood zone and your lender did not require you to purchase flood insurance, you likely you don't possess flood insurance. However, a review of your policy by an attorney at Dolman Law Group can let you know if it does indeed cover flood damage. If you have flood damage, and did not have it on your policy beforehand, you cannot add it to cover the damages. 

Likewise, it should be noted that you cannot add flood insurance right before a major impending catastrophe also. For example, if a hurricane is heading toward your area, you probably cannot add flood insurance in order to be covered for potential flooding. Insurance companies prevent this by placing a waiting period, usually 30 days, on any purchased policies. This is for a simple reason, carriers like you to pay them for a while before they pay you. 

It is also worth mentioning that more hurricanes are coming and we, in Florida, are not out of the woods yet. For this reason, it may be smart to consider purchasing flood insurance, if this is something you're concerned about. With Hurricane Maria on her way, and more likely to follow, this is worth considering. 

What is a deductible?

A deductible is a specified amount of money that the insured (you) must pay before an insurance company will pay a claim.

There may be different deductibles for different portions of the homeowner’s policy as well. This means you could have a deductible for the roof and a separate deductible for hurricane damage. A review of your policy by an attorney at Dolman Law Group will let you know what your deductibles are. When choosing a policy, you most likely were given an option as to what your deductible will be. In essence, the lower your deductible was the higher your monthly payment would be for that particular coverage.

As an example, if you have a $1000 deductible on your roofing repair and the cost of fixing the roof would be $8000, you would have to first pay the $1000 then your insurance company would pay to repair the remaining $7000 (hopefully).

What is an assignment of benefits?

An assignment of benefits is a legal document that you, as the insured, are executing with a contractor to sign over your rights to a lawsuit in the event that your insurance company does not pay properly. What this means is that if your claim is not paid by the insurance company you do not have to pay the difference to the contractor. Instead, they must sue the insurance company to be paid.

What if my bill is not paid by the insurance company? Or, What if it's underpaid?

While you might think that if you pay your insurance premium every month your insurance company will be there for you when you needed them, this is not always the case. In fact, this is an all too common occurrence and something we deal with on a regular basis at Dolman Law Group. Insurance companies deny legitimate claims and underpay contractors all the time. So what do you do?

Florida Statute §627.428 is the mechanism used by lawyers to go after the insurance company when they choose not to pay properly.  It states in 627.428 (1): 

"Upon the rendition of a judgment or decree by any of the courts of this state against an insurer and in favor of any named or omnibus insured or the named beneficiary under a policy or contract executed by the insurer, the trial court or, in the event of an appeal in which the insured or beneficiary prevails, the appellate court shall adjudge or decree against the insurer and in favor of the insured or beneficiary a reasonable sum as fees or compensation for the insured’s or beneficiary’s attorney prosecuting the suit in which the recovery is had.”

So what does that all mean? 

It means that if your attorney is successful in proving to the court that an insurance company denied a legitimate claim or underpaid a claim, the other party (insurance carrier) has to pay your legal fees, and of course for the damage.

What if I cannot afford to hire an attorney?

Because Florida Statute §627.428 awards attorney fees to prevailing parties, most attorneys, including Dolman Law Group, do not require any legal fees up front. Your attorney gets paid legal fees by the insurance company, only when they are successful in your claim. This is known as a contingency fee. So don't worry about the cost of hiring an attorney. 


Think about it this way: if your insurance company has underpaid your contractor bill by any amount, an attorney would have interest in getting that amount for you because the insurance company will have to pay the fees. This keeps the insurance companies honest and more likely to fairly pay on legitimate claims. 

So, even if the bill was underpaid by $100, the issue is worth pursuing. The fact is, the insurance company should have paid the correct and fair amount. At Dolman Law Group, we will do everything to make sure you are justly compensated. After all, you pay your bill on-time every month, so when you need the insurance company, they better be there to help you out.

Car Accident: Know Your Basic Rights

Basic Rights after Car Accident - Dolman Law Group

Car accidents aren't something the average person tends to think about very often. And if they do, they usually give very little consideration to what rights they may or may not have after the event. This article will go over the basic rights that every person should know if they operate a motor vehicle. 

When you are in a car accident, there are rights which you have by law. There are two basic rights that almost everyone inutively knows: the right to be restore yourself and your property; and the right to recover damages.

The most obvious, and important, of these two is the right for you (the driver) to be put back in the condition you were in before the accident occurred. This of course includes any medical treatments and surgeries, but may include a few surprising things that we'll cover below. The second part of number one is the right to restore your property. Oftentimes this means your repairing your vehicle.

The second intuitive right is the right to recover your damages from the accident. Everyone has seen the huge billboards with a happy couple and a big check. But these billboards often leave out the crippling and/or painful injuries these people would have suffered in order to get a large sum of money. However, it is obviously important to be compensated for any damages you sustain, whether it's for the cost of treating your injuries, lost income, or compensation for a dramatically changed or damaged daily life. 

Other Basic Rights:

  • A reasonable and equitable market replacement value of your automobile, if it's totaled.
  • Have your vehicle repaired if it's not totaled. 
  • Have any other personal property which had been damaged or destroyed in the accident repaired or replaced.
  • Use of a rental car while your automobile is being repaired.
  • To recover any lost wages or loss of earning capacity which might have resulted from the automobile accident.
  • The very best medical care available.
  • Compensation for any undue physical or mental stress, or any inconvenience which the accident caused.
  • Equitable settlement for permanent disabilities which resulted from the automobile accident.
  • Receive payment for your diminished ability to effectively interact socially with loved ones and friends.
  • Choose the very best facilities to repair your automobile and to choose which medical professionals will attend to your personal injuries.
  • Be assured that all passengers in your automobile will also receive the same high quality of care.
  • Be compensated for any pain and suffering, or any consequential damages caused by the accident.
  • Be compensated if your injuries are temporary OR permanent; and for any disfigurement resulting from the accident.
  • Be represented by the very best professional personal injury lawyer of your choice, to make sure that all of your rights are protected and that you have adequate representation in dealing with the insurance companies.
  • Receive a fair and just settlement from the involved insurance companies to pay for your damages in a timely manner.
  • To speak to an attorney before giving a statement or talking to any insurance adjuster. If they call, tell them you want to delay your statement until you talk to an attorney. This is important. Adjusters may trick you into saying something you shouldn't or you may say innocently say something that can be turned against you later. 


Of course, just because you have a right to these things does not mean things will always work out this way. For example, an insurance company may make a great offer that doesn't fit everything (but comes reasonably close); or you may go to court and a jury finds that you deserve far less than you think you deserve. But the important part is understanding that you do have a right to compensation, to be made whole, and to be represented by a competent attorney or firm.

If you have been injured in a car accident due to another person’s negligence there are so many questions to be answered: Will I be okay? How much everything is going to cost? How will it all be paid? How long will this take? And many, many more. Knowing that you have these rights may help to alleviate some of your initial anxiety, and it will definitely put you into a mindset of regaining what you lost. 

If someone was negligent, and they caused another person serious injuries and pain, they and their insurance company deserve to pay. It's fair, it's reasonable, and it's the law.

Legal Claims For Sports Injuries

Sports-related injuries, TBI lawyers and injury claims
Sports are a significant part of American culture. From local little league and high school sporting events to professional organizations like the National Football League (NFL) and Major League Baseball (MLB), sports are a recurring theme in our collective experience as Americans.

Although sports can be a fun way to exercise and build cooperation and leadership skills, they also come with an inherent risk of physical injury. Some sports, like football, pose a greater chance of injury to players because of the contact involved in game play. Other sports, like swimming, pose much less of an injury risk because there is no contact between opposing teams. However, there is no sport where a player has no chance of being injured. If you or your child are involved in sports, always be sure to take the necessary safety precautions for your particular sport.

If you or your child have suffered a sports-related injury caused by another party's recklessness or negligence, you could have grounds for a sports injury claim. Generally, athletes have to sign release forms acknowledging the risks of their sport and taking responsibility for them before joining a team or a gym. However, there are ways that an individual can be injured through no fault of his or her own. Unsafe or poorly-maintained equipment can lead to an injury as can insufficient safety gear provided to school athletes. If you feel that another party's recklessness or negligence, rather than the nature of the sport, led to your or your child's injury, contact an experienced personal injury attorney soon after receiving adequate medical care for the injury. A personal injury attorney can determine if you have grounds for a claim and if so, provide you with the legal guidance and representation you need to pursue monetary compensation for your damages.

Examples of Sports Injuries


Sports injuries range from fairly minor issues that only require a short period of rest to recover to life altering. In some cases, athletes die as a result of the injuries they sustain when playing sports. Examples of sports injuries include:

·         Broken bones;
·         Sprains;
·         Strains;
·         Concussions;
·         Dislocations;
·         Bruising;
·         Scarring;
·         Muscle swelling

Other complications that an individual can face as a result of a sports injury can include paralysis, paresis, and brain damage. These complications can often be prevented through immediate medical attention. If you or your child are injured while playing a sport or engaging in any other type of physical activity, seek medical care immediately.

Filing a Sports Injury Claim


As a claimant, you can potentially seek compensation for the following through your sports injury claim:

·         Medical expenses. This can include disability aids, such as a motorized scooter during your recovery;
·         Lost wages from time spent out of work to recover;
·         Pain and suffering. This refers to your intangible expenses, such as the need for psychological counseling following an accident.

After receiving medical care, contact an experienced personal injury attorney to determine how to proceed with your claim. You will need to provide evidence for your claim, which can include any type of documentation that shows how the negligent party caused your injury and you suffered significant expenses because of the injury.

Proving that your sports injury was caused by another party's recklessness or negligence can be more difficult than proving other types of personal injury claim because it is so easy to be injured while playing sports. Examples of cases where a claimant's injury was clearly due to another party's negligence or recklessness include cases like:

·         A football player suffering an injury after an opponent punched him during a tackle.
·         A soccer player suffering an injury after tripping in an unmarked hole in the playing field.
·         A swimmer suffering from a bacterial infection after swimming in a pool that was not properly chlorinated.

The Medical Failure to Properly Detect and Treat Fetal Distress



Fetal distress is a medical term used to describe the warning signs a fetus exhibits when potentially experiencing a health crisis, either shortly prior to, or during, delivery. These warning signs can develop rapidly, and if a mother and her unborn child are not carefully monitored throughout delivery, fetal distress signals can go unnoticed. Often, these warning signs are treated with birth-assisting tools—like vacuum extractors and forceps—or with cesarean sections.
Fetal Distress Can Happen
Several factors can lead to fetal distress, such as:

  • Dangerous presentation or positioning of the fetus during delivery
  • Multiple births (e.g., twins, triplets)
  • Shoulder dystocia (when the baby’s shoulder catches on the mother during delivery)
  • Nuchal cord (when the umbilical cord wraps around the fetus’s neck)
  • Prolapse of the umbilical cord (when the umbilical cord precedes the baby)
  • Complete or incomplete uterine rupture (when the uterus tears during delivery)

The Warning Signs of Fetal Distress
There are a range of warning signs that can indicate that the fetus may be in distress during the delivery process. These warning signs include:

  • When the fetus exhibits decreased or irregular movement inside the womb
  • When the fetus exhibits either an increased or decreased heart rate (especially during maternal contractions)
  • When the fetus’s blood shows increased lactate levels, which can indicate lactic acidosis
  • When the amniotic fluid indicates the presence of meconium (the infant’s first stool)

Monitoring for Fetal Distress
The most common method for determining fetal distress during labor (or before) is through fetal heart monitoring (FHM) and careful regulation of uterine contractions. The steady heart rate of a fetus provides a strong indication that the infant has proper blood flow and good overall health. Medical protocol generally dictates that the fetus’s heart rate be checked and recorded every 30 minutes. This consistent monitoring can aid in pinpointing fetal heart-rate changes that can indicate fetal distress. Heart-rate monitoring can be done in a variety of ways, in a variety of birth settings, and with a variety of different monitoring tools.


External Fetal Monitoring

External fetal monitoring records the fetal heart rate by measuring it through the mother’s abdomen. The most basic of these devices is the fetoscope, which is a stethoscope that is specialized for the purpose. A more complex handheld electric Doppler device that provides an ultrasound is another form of external monitoring.

Internal Monitoring

Internal fetal monitoring involves using a wire electrode that is normally attached to the fetus’s head through the mother’s cervical opening. The strength of the mother’s contractions can also be effectively measured by a device that is inserted into the uterus. One such device is the tocodynamometer, which is a pressure-sensitive monitor that measures a contraction’s frequency, length, and strength. At the same time, it measures the fetal heart rate in relation to the contraction, which is another means of identifying fetal distress.

Early Fetal Stress Test

While most fetal stress tests are performed during (or just prior to) delivery, the American Pregnancy Association recommends that a Fetal Non-Stress Test (NST) be performed after 28 gestation weeks. This test is comprised of two external monitoring belts that detect both fetal heart rate and maternal contractions relative to fetal movement. The results of the NST indicate whether the fetus has adequate blood flow and is receiving adequate oxygen; both of these are essential to the prevention of fetal distress.

Recognizing Fetal Distress

The symptoms of fetal distress are the signs that alert medical professionals to potential issues with the fetus’s oxygen supply. Fetal distress can come on suddenly—even during a healthy pregnancy—and the health of both the mother and the baby are dependent on how well the members of the medical team monitor and react to this distress. The team members’ abilities to recognize the warning signs of fetal distress and to respond accordingly are paramount to a healthy delivery. If the medical professionals fail to recognize and promptly respond to fetal distress, the newborn’s health—and sometimes the mother’s health—can be jeopardized.

Treating Fetal Distress

Fetal distress, if left unchecked, can lead to dire health consequences. It is essential that the expectant mother and her unborn child be carefully and properly monitored throughout delivery. Competent medical professionals carefully monitor for fetal distress and have the experience and skill to immediately respond in a manner that minimizes the detrimental health effects and maximizes the safety of the mother and her unborn child.
Consequences of Fetal Distress

Fetal distress that is not correctly monitored, recognized, and handled can have catastrophic consequences for your newborn and family. In fact, birth injuries are often physically, financially, and emotionally damaging. Birth injuries caused by improper detection can lead to lifelong physical and cognitive disabilities. The effects can be overwhelming for the entire family, and children who suffer from birth injuries can require a lifetime of ongoing medical treatment, accommodations for special needs, and highly specialized caregiver and daily-living services.

The potential consequences of undetected or improperly treated fetal distress are so significant that you should seek immediate legal counsel if you are concerned that medical negligence may have caused your child’s birth injury. As difficult as your situation is, it is essential that you act quickly. Determining fault in a birth injury case is complicated, and your skilled birth injury attorney must immediately begin collecting evidence, interviewing your medical team and medical experts, and determining fault in your child’s birth injury case.
Consult with a St. Petersburg Birth Injury Lawyer Today
Despite modern medicine and advanced medical training, birth injuries still happen, and they are sometimes the result of medical negligence. Medical negligence, however, is not always obvious. If your baby suffered a birth injury, contact a skilled birth injury lawyer as soon as possible after discovering the injury. The experienced St. Petersburg birth injury attorneys at the Dolman Law Group are dedicated to protecting the rights of birth injury victims, and we are here to help.

Slip and Fall Accidents: The Basics

slip and fall basics

At some point in all of our lives we have slipped and fallen for one reason or another. Usually it's because we weren't watching where we were going and slipped due to our own carelessness. But sometimes, slipand falls are caused by another person’s negligence. Imagine a scenario where you are visiting a grocery store and slip and fall because a store employee left a banana peel on the floor. This is the classic slip and fall case involving a commercial property. This article will walk you through the basic elements of a slip and fall case and what your attorney will be looking for when they evaluate your potential claim.

Was there a duty owed by the business?

It is important to establish that the person you are claiming caused your injury actually had a duty to protect you. A duty exists when a business owner owns, controls, or operates a business and consumers are invited onto that premises to conduct business. A business owner owes a duty to these customers to make sure that the premises are in a safe condition. If a business owner or employee fails to keep the premises clean and free of noticeable dangers, they may be found to have breached their duty to their guests, and that is when they could potentially face liability.

Was the store aware that the situation existed?

This is called the “notice” requirement. Was the store either actually aware that the condition existed or constructively aware? A store is actually aware when they discover the banana peel themselves and fail to take any action. If someone tells the store or a store employee about the banana peel they are also on actual notice of the condition. Constructivenotice can be established when a plaintiff can prove that the store failed to regularly inspect the premises when they know that it is likely that a spill could occur. If they know this probability is high, and they fail to take steps to inspect, they are said to be on constructive notice that a dangerous condition could be present.

Did the store breach their duty to keep the premises safe?

As discussed above, a business owes a duty to its customers to keep the premises in a safe condition. This duty is breached when they are put on either actual or constructive notice that a dangerous condition is present and they fail to take action to remedy the situation. If a business is aware that the banana peel is on the floor and they decide to ignore that notice and fail to pick it up, and someone slips on that banana peel, they have breached their duty to their guests. Likewise if a business fails to actually regularly inspect the business for dangerous conditions knowing that there is a chance one could appear at any time, they have breached their duty to regularly inspect and could be liable.

Were your injuries caused by the stores breach?

So you slipped and fell on the floor after you stepped on the banana peel, does that mean your case is automatically worth a million dollars? No. Most people do not realize that you must be able to pointto an actual injury which was caused by that slip and fall. This is known as the causation element. In order for you to claim damages, you must be able to show that the injuries you suffered were either caused by the slip and fall, or were preexisting conditions which were actually aggravated by the slip and fall. An aggravated injury is one in which an old wound once again surfaces and begins causing pain again. If you can show that your injury was caused by the slip and fall, or that a preexisting injury was aggravated by the fall, you stand a better chance of being compensated for your injuries.

Contact an experienced attorney for your slip and fall case

The personal injury attorneys of the Dolman Law Group have decades of experience in negotiating and litigating slip and fall claims. They fight hard to protect Clearwater residents from injuries and ensure that they are fairly compensated when injuries do occur.

Umbilical Cord Problems Can Lead to Birth Injuries



Assisting Clients Who Have Been Affected by Birth Injuries Due to Medical Negligence

The umbilical cord is the lifeline from a mother to the child she is carrying. Without the umbilical cord, a baby would not receive blood, oxygen, or nutrients. The baby also would not be able to eliminate waste. The umbilical cord cannot be safely clamped and severed until after the baby is delivered; otherwise, the baby will not survive.

Due to the importance of the umbilical cord, you can likely imagine how dangerous it can be when a problem arises involving this cord. When certain umbilical cord issues arise, they must be addressed as soon as possible to prevent any injuries that can result from cutting off the baby’s oxygen or blood supply. In some situations, however, doctors fail to properly diagnose umbilical cord problems that they should have noticed. In such situations, unnecessary and preventable birth injuries may occur.

Having your child sustain an avoidable birth injury is a traumatic experience that will likely affect your family for years to come. Many financial and intangible losses can result from a birth injury. If your doctor’s negligence was to blame for the injury, you have the right to seek compensation for your losses. The birth injury attorneys at Dolman Law Group regularly represent clients in medical malpractice claims and can help you after a birth injury in your family.

Umbilical Cord Issues that Should be Addressed

The following are some examples of problems that may arise involving the umbilical cord. These should be properly diagnosed and addressed whenever possible. Each doctor should have specific methods of addressing these umbilical cord problems should they present a risk to your child:

-Nuchal cord The nuchal cord is one of the most commonly-seen problems. It happens when the cord becomes wrapped around the neck of the infant. When the cord is wrapped loosely, there is little danger; however, if the cord is wrapped tightly around the infant’s neck, she may be deprived of oxygen and suffer brain injuries, cerebral palsy, or other birth injuries as a result.

-Umbilical cord prolapse - This happens when the umbilical cord passes through the

cervix in the labor and delivery process before the infant. When the infant follows, his head and body can compress the cord, or the cord can become wrapped around him. If not detected and addressed quickly, this can lead to severe oxygen deprivation and related birth injuries.

-Knots in the umbilical cord - Loose knots can form in the umbilical cord during pregnancy because of the way a baby moves around. However, during a traditional delivery, a loose knot can become tightened and constrict the cord, preventing adequate oxygen and blood flow from reaching the child during a sometimes long delivery.

-Cysts on the umbilical cord - Different types of cysts can develop on the umbilical cord early on in a pregnancy. If properly detected, these cysts can be treated relatively easily. However, if not diagnosed and treated, umbilical cord cysts can result in birth defects.

-Umbilical cord stricture - While one of the rarest issues, this is perhaps the most frightening of the umbilical cord problems. This is because it is not known why it occurs and it can happen to anyone during pregnancy. When the umbilical cord narrows, it can cause severe fetal distress and, if the condition is not diagnosed immediately, it can often result in miscarriage or stillbirth.

Many umbilical cord problems happen on their own and there is nothing that even the best doctors could do to prevent them. However, a doctor should identify that there is an issue with the umbilical cord as soon as possible and take any steps necessary to reduce the risk of injury to a child.

If an infant is injured by an umbilical cord problem and there was no way to prevent the injury, a doctor will not be held legally at fault for that injury. However, if a doctor failed to diagnose an umbilical cord issue or did not take the appropriate measures to prevent injuries, the doctor may then be held legally liable for any birth injuries that occurred under Florida law.
The Birth Injury Claim Process
If your child was injured at birth and you believe your doctor’s mistakes may be to blame, you should discuss what happened with the Dolman Law Group as soon as possible. Our attorneys will use our resources to evaluate your situation and determine whether medical malpractice occurred and whether you have a valid claim.

Birth injury cases may either be resolved through a claim with the doctor or hospital’s insurance company, or by filing a lawsuit in civil court. In either situation, it is critical that you have an experienced birth injury law firm on your side to represent you through every step of the process. Our attorneys understand the complex insurance and legal negotiations and will seek to resolve your case in the most favorable way possible.

Umbilical cord problems are only one of many different things that can go wrong during pregnancy, labor, and delivery.

Doctors should be living up to their expected standard of care and doing everything in their power to protect both infants and mothers from birth injuries.
