St. Thomas More Cancer Awareness Dinner

The heart of St. Peregrine, the patron saint of cancer healing, is surely filled with gratitude this month as parishioners at St. Thomas More 20141014_172738 (2)Catholic Church in Boynton Beach build cancer awareness and seek to help their fellow congregants overcome the hurdles associated with a cancer diagnosis. Parishioners share in praying for one another, but they are also engaged in a fundraising endeavor that has not only helped to build and maintain the on campus St. Peregrine Memorial Garden, but has also served to supply much needed funds to victims and their families. “The garden serves as a place of serenity and respite for all who need a place to reflect” comments Addie Iscoe, wife of firm partner Gary Iscoe.

Though the month of October is set aside as Breast Cancer Awareness month, St. Thomas More’s efforts are aimed at building awareness of all cancers. The church is holding their third annual Cancer Awareness Dinner on Saturday October 18, 2014 at 5:30pm.

The Steinger, Iscoe & Greene family has gotten involved by not only serving as a major sponsor of the dinner, but Addie Iscoe is this year’s event co-chair. So many people are affected by cancer and it is not just the victims, but also their families, that are rocked by news of a cancer diagnosis. Mrs. Iscoe shared that this cause is so close to her heart because she lost her mother to cancer. This is one of the ways in which she fights to help others overcome.

In addition to her volunteer role as co-chair for this event, Mrs. Iscoe serves as the dance instructor for the Cardinal Newman High School Dance Team who wanted to be involved in the efforts to build cancer awareness. They will contribute by providing entertainment at this year’s dinner. Most recently Alyssa Thomas and Martin Salgado from the school’s dance team were featured in the Palm Beach Post for their half-time performance.

Not to be outdone, the Cardinal Newman band has also made time in their busy fall schedule to give a performance that is sure to delight. Other entertainment includes performances by That’s Dancing’s Fusion Force Dance Company, a special dance selection performed by Drs. Vicente and Violeta Chiong, and Maria Burns from the Cardinal Newman chorus will treat the audience to a selection of songs.

Event tickets are $25 per person and include dinner – either chicken or salmon – and the performances. Companies and organizations are encouraged to sponsor the event at one of the following donor levels:

  • Diamond – $5,000
  • Platinum – $1,000
  • Gold – $500
  • Silver – $300
  • Bronze – $100

Diamond, Platinum, and Gold level sponsors will receive an engraved plaque in the St. Peregrine Cancer Garden. The parish office can be reached at 561-737-3095 to purchase event tickets, sponsor the event, or get additional information about the dinner.

Mrs. Iscoe says this was a Herculean effort and lauds the contributions of the entire committee as well as the direction of the parish leader. “Father Harris is focused on the well-being of his parishioners at all times. He is conscientious, focused on spirituality, and his leadership is inspiring.” She goes on to say, “The dinner, just like the garden, is for everyone to enjoy.”

Though our core business is helping the injured through legal representation, we recognize the importance and necessity of helping in other ways including our time, talents, and treasure. The attorneys and staff at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene are honored to be part of this community and continuously seek ways in which to serve. We wish hope and peace to anyone whose loved one has received a terminal diagnosis.

Steinger, Iscoe & Greene Raises $5K for National Denim Day

National Denim DayNo initiative more clearly illustrates the strength in coming together around a cause and the results that can be achieved as does Lee’s National Denim Day. One day per year, companies sign up to participate in this fundraising campaign, the proceeds of which go towards the fight to eradicate breast cancer. Employers agree to allow employees to pay five dollars or more to wear jeans to work, ending with all monies collected getting donated to the American Cancer Society.

This year, National Denim Day fell on Friday October 3rd. The Steinger, Iscoe & Greene firm family, who participate each year, embraced the cause, doubled their donations from last year, and through a coordinated and concerted effort were able to contribute $5,030! According to firm partner, Gary Iscoe, “Susan Haywood, a 17 year employee, from the first year of our firm, is an incredible person, and the spearhead at SIG in Breast Cancer Awareness.” Susan and all of the anti-cancer warriors who participated this year are applauded for their phenomenal efforts and achievement.

Though the American Cancer Society and other organizations are raising money to contribute to research and prevention, breast cancer continues to affect countless lives each year. We would be remiss if we did not share with you the depth and breadth of the reach of the breast cancer diagnosis in the United States.

Breast Cancer Statistics 2014

  • 232,670 new invasive breast cancer cases will be diagnosed this year
  • 62,570 will be diagnosed in the earliest stages
  • 40,000 women will die from breast cancer
  • Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death for women
  • There are approximately 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States
  • Men are not immune:
  • An estimated 2,360 cases will be diagnosed this year
  • Approximately 430 men will die from breast cancer

The statistics are staggering, making it that much more important to learn as much as you can and implement as many prevention and early detection measures as possible.

Prevention

  • Smoking increases the risk of all forms of cancer; find a way to quit
  • Limit alcohol intake
  • If you don’t have one in place already, start an exercise regimen
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Follow a diet high in vegetables and fruits and low in processed foods, including processed meats

Early Detection

  • Perform breast self-examinations and consult a doctor if you notice lumps or other changes in your breast tissue
  • In your 20s and 30s schedule clinical breast examinations every three years
  • In your 40s schedule annual breast exams and mammograms
  • If you have a family history of breast cancer, it is imperative that you share as much information as possible with your healthcare professional to look into genetic testing or possible prevention therapies

The warning signs and symptoms vary by individual, so it is important to know your body and what is normal for you. If you experience pain, itching, rashes, changes in breast size, or any other symptoms, make an appointment with your doctor immediately.

Steinger, Iscoe & Greene Port Saint Lucie Office

The sad reality is that one in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. As Gary Iscoe reflected on that statistic, he commented, “The other seven will be there to support her!” The Steinger, Iscoe & Greene family encourages everyone to ‘Join the Movement’ and do their part to transition breast cancer sufferers to breast cancer survivors.

We are thankful to our extended office family in Florida and California for their participation in and support of the movement to stop breast cancer from devastating the lives of our mothers, sisters, daughters, and other loved-ones.

Heroes Abound: Police Push Vietnam Veteran’s Stalled Scooter Two Miles

Police and ScooterSuperheroes do not always come clad in tights and a cape. In our collective imaginations, they have super-human strength, can stop bullets, and fly at the speed of light. Rescuing people in distress is their calling and they carry it out selflessly. Real life shows us that heroes come in all forms – and not necessarily in tights with the requisite ‘S’ on their chest. Gil Larocque of San Diego can attest to this.

Larocque, a war veteran, has had trouble walking since sustaining injuries in Vietnam. He uses a motorized scooter to run errands for himself and his 90 year-old father who is a Pearl Harbor survivor. On Memorial Day weekend, he got on his scooter and travelled to his destination without incident. Unfortunately, his return trip was not as smooth as his scooter stalled two miles from his home. All attempts to flag down passersby for assistance failed until two San Diego police officers, Milo Shields and Eric Cooper, came to the rescue.

The officers tried to get the scooter to work to no avail, so they did the only thing they could; they pushed Larocque and the malfunctioning scooter – a combined weight of over 300 pounds – the two miles distance.  “Whenever we got to an intersection, we’d be in the middle of an intersection, pushing this guy and it would just lock up, so we’d have to drag this thing through the intersection,” Cooper said. Thankfully, their efforts were successful and a grateful Larocque made it home safely.

Talk about everyday superheroes! These officers, with their uniforms and badges, came to the rescue of this veteran in distress. No capes, no tights, just a desire to serve and protect. And how interesting that they ended up helping another superhero; one who served his country so valiantly nearly 40 years ago. The interesting thing about superheroes is you don’t think about them until a situation arises that requires their intervention.

Brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, auto and boating accidents, medical malpractice, defective products and recalls, restitution for child sexual abuse – people are injured every day and they need a hero to come to their rescue. The attorneys at Steinger, Iscoe, & Greene are everyday heroes. They use their knowledge and resources to fight on behalf of victims and work to achieve the best case conclusion. You and your loved-ones may never need us; but our team of superheroes are here if you do.

Skydive Accident Claims the Life of NASCAR Driver’s Brother

Jordan Janway, the brother-in-law of NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson, has died following a mid-air skydiving collision. According to NBC, Janway was practicing a maneuver called ‘tracking’ while training Skydive San Diego Employees when the collision happened.

Because of Janway’s level of experience, he wasn’t required to jump with a chip – a device that deploys the parachute in the event a skydiver is falling too fast. Apparently, Janway’s was undergoing maintenance at the time of the jump. It is unclear if that would have saved his life.

Our thoughts are with the Janway and Johnson families as they mourn the loss of Jordan. A tragic loss like this one, reminds us how important safety precautions are when participating in extreme sports. We realize accidents can still occur under the best of circumstances, even when protocols are followed. If you find yourself or a loved one involved in an accident and need help sorting out your rights, let our team at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene put a plan in place for recovering your deserved compensation.

School Bus Accident In Greenacres Warns of Busy Morning Rush

busaccidentThe morning commute is a busy time for our roadways here in South Florida. Even with the best road conditions, accidents are unfortunately apart of those few hours after dawn – congested intersections, a larger pedestrian presence and hurried drivers can all be factors. A collision involving a school bus and another vehicle, just before 8 am, brought 57th Avenue in Greenacres to a stop for at least an hour.

Two of eleven children traveling on the bus were taken to an area hospital without major injuries, while a third child who was in the involved SUV , was flown by Trauma Hawk to Delray Medical Center. According to officials, the bus sustained minor back-end damage, while the SUV had extensive front-end wreckage.

We always regret hearing about accidents, and those involving innocent children make the situation even harder. If your child has been involved in an accident due to the negligence of another, Steinger, Iscoe & Greene wants to help answer your questions and resolve your concerns. While we cannot take away the trauma of a collision, knowing your child’s rights and fighting for compensation is how you can help ease the pain.

Diver in Boynton Beach Brought Back To Life

shutterstock_134597414An act of heroism brought a Boynton Beach diver back to life. According to reports, the man arrived back at the Explorer vessel unresponsive, where fellow diver Richard Henshaw, the boat’s captain and assistant captain, performed CPR. Even before Coast Guard and EMT arrived, the comrades were able to resuscitate the diver, reminding us how life-saving it is to never partake in water sports alone.

Even with proper precautions in place, such as dive flags and buoys that warn boats of scuba-divers’ location, mother nature can also be responsible for accidents like this one. Joseph Razzano, who watched the scenario play out, explained how rough waters and submerged rocks, especially when close to shore, can wreak havoc on a beautiful day of exploring the ocean.

As members of the South Florida community, we are always commending those first responders and are grateful for citizens that lend a hand, or breath, when accidents occur. The promise of beautiful spring days for recreational sports and fishing excursions is an exciting one, although we urge you to take caution and stay safe while traveling the waterways. Our team at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene is always available to answer questions about your rights in and on the water, and in the unfortunate event of an accident, help you navigate your way to due compensation.

Disabled Veteran to Stand Trial For Fatal La Jolla Accident

genesee_wreck_vw_audi_1382567150448_1153029_ver1.0_320_240At Steinger, Iscoe & Greene, we wish there was a way to keep accidents from happening. While many factors can cause a crash, such as weather and traffic conditions, those that involve operator negligence are the hardest to comprehend. Driving while intoxicated or failing to adhere to rules of the road can carry heavy penalties, including hefty fines, jail time and license revocation.

This week, disabled Air Force Veteran Soranon Boopanon was ordered to stand trial on charges of gross vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence of drugs. According to the Deputy District Attorney, Boopanon was driving while taking four depressants, including Valium, when she ran a red light on La Jolla Village Drive and caused a chain reaction collision. After first hitting an Audi, Boopanon collided with a Volkswagen Golf, which killed the driver of that car, George Matteson, 77, instantly. Boopanon, 39, faces 15 years in prison if convicted.

Our thoughts go out to friends and family as they face the loss of their loved one in this accident. Questions will likely ensue after an accident and our legal team at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene is here to help you answer them all. If you or a loved one has fallen victim to another driver’s negligence, you have a right to enlist legal assistance.

Driver Sentenced After Hitting Encinitas Toddler

Our lawyers at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene will always regret hearing about accidents involving pedestrians. It is even more heartbreaking when those pedestrians are children. Traffic signals, stop signs and crosswalks were created to keep those traveling on the roadways safe. Drivers who choose to operate a vehicle and endanger innocent citizens by neglecting the rules of the road will likely face harsh penalties, like the suspect charged earlier this week.

Agustin Morales, 33, was sentenced to a year behind bars, after pleading guilty to misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter. Morales fatally struck Juan Andres Ruiz, 3, while he was walking alongside his mother and her baby, on their way to the school bus in Encinitas. According to officials, Morales may have rolled past a stop sign and then into a bike lane. Ruiz died on the way to the hospital after becoming pinned under Morales vehicle and sustaining critical injuries.

Our thoughts are with Juan Andres Ruiz’s family in this difficult time. No amount of financial compensation can fill the void of losing a child in a horrific crash, however we believe it is one of the ways families are able to move forward, gain closure and heal. If you find yourself needing legal guidance or answers to questions after a crash, please give us a call anytime, day or night at 1-800-560-5059.

Driver on Meth Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison

Robbie GillespieOperating a vehicle is a privilege and one that should be taken on with responsibility and defensive driving techniques. Getting behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol impairs proper judgement and reaction time that is necessary to be a safe driver. We are saddened to learn about accidents caused by operator negligence, especially when these bad decisions involve innocent passengers. Not only do drug or alcohol related crashes wreak havoc on victim’s families, they also carry heavy penalties.

Such is the case on Monday when Robbie Dean Gillespie, 45, of Rancho Bernardo, was sentenced to 10 years in prison, following a June accident that killed his 19-year-old passenger Evelyn Courtney. Gillespie and Courtney collided with a Poway Fire Truck shortly after 4 am, and Courtney perished at the scene. It’s also reported that Gillespie was arrested two days prior to the accident for having 1.8 grams of methamphetamine in a hotel room, but was released on bail.

The Judge on the case said Gillespie was a threat to society, and violated the trust of the victim.

We wish bad things never happened and will do anything we can to make the world a safer place for innocent victims like Evelyn Courtney. Our lawyers at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene defend and protect the rights of injury victims when so often the businesses who are meant to do so fall short, denying the much needed resource healing and recovery from an accident. Nothing will ever undo the travesty of catastrophic accidents, especially those involving loss of a loved one. We just hope that our firm can be there for those in need during some of life’s most trying times.

Drunk Driver Sentenced to 9 Years After Fatal Alpine Crash

Sunny HallWe wish accidents never happened at all, but sadly they are apart of our lives. Heavy traffic and unfavorable weather conditions, which sometimes affect Southern California, can contribute to collisions. However some accidents might be avoided altogether, such as those involving drivers under the influence. Not only is it illegal to get behind the wheel while intoxicated, drinking and driving restricts vision and hearing, delaying reaction time. As a result, penalties for those under the influence while driving are heavy and can include hefty fines and long prison sentences. Not only are the negligent drivers involved, victims and their families are left to pick up the pieces.

Such is the case when Angela August, 25, and Jimmy Arevalo, 59, were tragically struck by a driver with a .15 percent blood-alcohol level, nearly double the legal limit. August’s vehicle became overturned after she lost control, scaled an embankment and rolled into the left lane of the highway. Arevalo pulled over at the scene to help and was speaking with CHP on his cell phone, when Sunny Hall, 31, ran into him and August’s car.

Hall was sentenced Monday to 9 years in state prison.

Our thoughts are with the victim’s families and wish we could take the pain of these losses away. We realize that nothing can undo the heartbreak of an accident like this one, but we do hope that our firm can be there when you need help the most. Our lawyers at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene defend and protect the rights of injury victims, shouldering some of the burden so that necessary healing and recovery can take place.

Beach Road Joggers Hit by Juno Neighbor

In South Florida, we are in the height of season. Our mild winter temperatures and miles of beaches bring people from all over the country, for months of outdoor activity. Unfortunately, the roads become busier and there are more pedestrians that need to share the space, from runners to bicyclists and those headed to the sandy dunes. Sadly, sometimes these jaunts turn into accidents like the one in Juno Beach.

Joggers Clifford Davis and Deborah Morton-Hengen were involved in a tragic accident last week, while trying to cross U.S. 1, a highly-traveled, popular beach road. Their neighbor Albert Michaluk, hit the pair after stopping at the intersection of Donald Ross Road. Police believe he may have been trying to make a right on red, startled the joggers, and was unable to keep from hitting them. Davis passed away after he and his wife were transported to St. Mary’s Medical Center, where Morton-Hengen is in critical but stable condition.

Our thoughts are with Morton-Hengen as she recovers and mourns the loss of her husband. We hope that anyone exercising, enjoying the weather and driving during these beautiful months, will stay safe by taking necessary precautions while out on the road. At Steinger, Iscoe & Greene, we realize that no one will expect to be involved in an accident, but if you are we want to help you understand your rights. If you feel you deserve compensation for your loss or injuries, call our team at 1-800-560-5059 or fill out a free, no obligation consultation form online, anytime.

82nd Airborne Paratrooper Bravely Parishes During Fort Bragg Training

Fort BraggMilitary training is integral to our troops’ survival. At bases around the U.S., soldiers simulate war zones and firing formations, in hopes of being better prepared for the battle field. We respect and admire the brave men and women that constantly fight for our freedom and regret hearing about any of these practices backfiring.

An 82nd Airbone paratrooper was killed during one of these exercises Friday at Fort Bragg, in North Carolina.The incident involved live-fire of an M777 light, towed howitzer – a large gun, reminiscent of a cannon. Two others were seriously injured and transported to Womack Army Medical Center and Duke University Medical Center for treatment. Officials credit two medics on base for providing life-saving techniques to the wounded soldiers.

Our thoughts are with the paratrooper’s family and we also hope for a full recovery to those that suffered injuries. Steinger, Iscoe & Greene is thankful for our military’s service and wish safety for all of our soldiers, in training and at war, and hope that a soldier you love is never hurt defending our country. If you ever have questions about your rights or need help recovering compensation you deserve, call our office at 1-800-560-5059 or fill out a free, no obligation consultation form online, anytime.

Chef and Iron Man Competitor Biking Again After Crash

ChefIronmanEven those who compete in the legendary ‘Iron Man’ competition, aren’t necessarily made of steel, as evidenced with San Diego chef Steve Ferguson. Grueling workouts that include relays of cycling and swimming kept Ferguson, a longtime Morena area chef, in shape for years – until he was hit by a car biking home from Waters, where he has been head chef for two decades. The crash nearly killed him, sending him to the hospital for 17 days and keeping him on a physical therapy regimen for five months.

We wish there was a way to keep accidents from happening, but unfortunately they are a part of our everyday lives. Even when bicyclists are cautious, seasoned riders, there are myriad reasons why collisions still occur, one of them being distracted driving. Ferguson says he has known a handful of cyclists that have been killed in San Diego by drivers under the influence or using cell phones while behind the wheel.

Our hopes are for a continued recovery for Steve Ferguson, and wish that his dedications to both competing in Iron Man and cooking as Iron Chef go unhindered. At Steinger, Iscoe & Greene we want to help put the pieces back together for any victim and their family. Accidents are a scary, confusing time that can leave victims and loved ones with many questions about their rights and compensation – that’s why we are here. If you or a loved one has been involved in a crash, we want to help get you answers. Call us at 1-800-560-5059 or fill out a free, no obligation consultation form online, anytime.

Beloved Skateboarder Tragically Hit in San Diego

 

Southern California’s pleasant weather and scenic highways are perfect for those desiring an outdoor lifestyle. It’s a concern however, how the space is shared between motorists and those partaking in recreational activity. We are always saddened to hear about skateboarders, bike riders and pedestrians being affected by the vehicles they share the road with. It’s even more disheartening when negligence plays a factor in tragically claiming one of these lives.

Vincent Edward Zellefrow, Jr., 20, was skateboarding with a friend on Carlsbad Boulevard when he was struck and killed by a vehicle. His family has said he skated over 50 miles on a recent vacation in Maui and loved to be outside.

A 17-year-old suspect was later arrested and faces charges of Felony DUI, Felony Hit-and-run and vehicular manslaughter.

Alafia River Crash Sheds Light on Commercial License Regulations

Following a crash on I-75 in Tampa that involved a tractor-trailer driver with multiple infractions, Florida lawmakers are looking to raise standards for commercial license acquisition. Although Florida follows Federal regulations, this case is causing the state to look at further measures for preventing these types of accidents. At Steinger, Iscoe & Greene we always regret hearing about collisions, no matter the cause or types of vehicles involved.

The tractor trailer became overturned on a stretch of Alafia River overpass in Hillsborough County, after trying to pass a vehicle and clipping the rear-end. That car, a BMW, veered into the river and its driver, James Proctor, has perished.

When bad things happen to innocent people, there should be protection. That is why we are here as a firm, to ensure innocent victims are compensated for their loss and any injuries they may suffer as the result of an accident. Our lawyers at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene want to help you sort out the aftermath. Call us anytime at 1-800-560-5059 or fill out a free, no obligation consultation form online, anytime.

Higher Witness Rewards May Help Curb San Diego’s Hit-and-Run Epidemic

When someone responsible for an accident flees the scene, it can leave victims feeling helpless. These incidents can also become a dead-end for police investigation. A slew of hit-and-run collisions in the area, often involving pedestrians, have given the San Diego police department, along with Crime Stoppers, reason to call for raised witness rewards. Steinger, Iscoe & Greene knows that an accident of any kind will shake up your world and we hope that you never find yourself in that position.

Three accidents in the last month have shaken up the community and pointed to a possible need for higher monetary incentives. Within the same week, Motorcyclist Seamus O’Bryan was killed by a hit and run driver in a white sedan and 23-year-old Benjamin Ramirez was hit by a white box truck while walking home from work in Escondido. A week later, San Ysidro senior Alonso Flores Pacheco, 81, was killed right in front of his son. Pacheco was hit crossing the street by a car that just kept going.

“If they are not willing to call for $1,000, maybe they’ll call for $10,000. Every case is different,” says SDPD officer Jim Johnson, of hit-and-run tipsters. “By adding that additional money it might generate more interest in the community and the media as well”

According to the SDPD, victim’s families often times add money to the reward. Johnson is hoping to find other private donors or even local governments to fund a hit and run restricted rewards program in San Diego.

In the unfortunate event of a hit-and-run accident, we want to make sure you have the legal support you are entitled to. We hope that this epidemic never affects you or your loved ones, but in the event that it does, Steinger, Iscoe & Greene wants to help you sort out the pieces and fight for the compensation you deserve.

SDG&E Driver At Fault, Lawsuit Filed to Recover On Damages and Heartbreak

The San Diego accident that claimed the life of a mother and left two young girls physically and emotionally scarred, saw some resolve yesterday as charges were placed on the driver of that SDG&E vehicle. Our team at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene wishes we could undo the accidents that happen every day – what we can do is be there for the victims and their families of accidents in order to recover as much compensation as possible for those whose lives have been traumatically impacted by an accident. We take on the fight for fairness and rightful recovery so our clients can concentrate on getting better, and putting the pieces of their lives back together.

The lawsuit was filed by the Arias family, whose 4-year-old daughter Jaslene was one of the girls hurt in the crash. The suit alleges SDG&E was negligent in failing to implement a no-cellphone policy for employees who operate company vehicles.

Investigators concluded that the driver was at fault for inattention. Authorities have not determined if the driver was using his cellphone at the time of the crash.

We will continue to follow this case and others like it, to remain a beacon and advocate for those involved in auto accidents. Although no amount of financial compensation can fill the void of losing a loved one, or seeing a child involved in a horrific crash, we believe it is one of the ways families are able to move forward, gain closure and heal. If you find yourself needing legal guidance or answers to questions after a crash, please give us a call anytime, day or night at   1-800-560-5059.

Florida Bus Company Fails to Respond To Deadly Crash in Philippines

If an accident happens and the responsible party refuses to communicate, can you still take action?

Absolutely. Just because an at-fault company fails to respond to an accident and the ensuing claims, you still have legal recourse. Our lawyers at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene want you to know that you have rights that should be exercised and we are here to be your voice.

Such is the case of this Florida-based transportation company, who has yet to formally respond to their victims. GV Florida Transport, a company operating in the Philippines, is under scrutiny after a fatal crash in Bontoc, Mountain Province, in which a bus fell into a ravine – killing 14 and injuring more than 30. These victims, and family members of those lost in the bus accident, are signing a petition, asking the company to step-up and give them answers.

One survivor, whose injuries are “less severe” than other passengers, has already incurred up to $50,000 in medical costs. Without a statement direct from GV Florida Transport or its representatives, and bills piling up, victims are left wondering what the next step might be in collecting due compensation.

As a result of the company’s lack of response, GV Florida’s franchise has been suspended by the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) for 30-days pending an investigation. The LTFRB found that the ill-fated bus bound for Bontoc was not authorized to operate.

A hearing connected to the bus crash in Bontoc is scheduled at 9 am on February 19th.

Don’t let the silence of at-fault parties make you feel helpless, or worse go uncontested. If you or a loved one were injured in an accident like this, you do have a right to justice. Steinger, Iscoe & Greene have years of experience fighting to make our clients’ voices heard. Our thoughts go out to everyone involved in this unfortunate crash and hope that if you need us to help sort through the pieces, you won’t hesitate to reach out.

Log Truck Collides with SUV in Suwannee

We are always saddened to hear about accidents, especially those that involve semi-trucks and 18-wheelers. Knowing the power and the force they may exert when involved in a crash, large working vehicles should be operated with extreme care, to help avoid incidents like the one in Suwannee County last week.

The Florida Highway Patrol says 42-year-old Eliecer Labrada was driving a log truck onto U.S. 90 from County Road 137 when he pulled directly into the path of 42-year-old Tracy Deas’ SUV. The accident happened just after midnight and closed U.S. 90 for hours. Deas was taken to Shands Hospital, but was pronounced dead just after 8:30 this morning.

The truck driver was not hurt, and there is no word yet on any charges.

Our thoughts go out to friends and family as they face the loss of their loved one in this accident. Questions will likely ensue after an accident and our legal team at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene is here to help you answer them all. If you or a loved one has fallen victim to another driver’s negligence, you have a right to enlist legal assistance. Let us take over the fight for justice and compensation, so that you can concentrate on healing.

Victims of Head-On Collision Ask San Diego to Make SR 56 Safer

The couple that was involved in a severe head-on collision in San Diego is calling on Caltrans, the state agency responsible for highway planning and maintenance, to make SR-56 safer.

As advocates for the San Diego community, we are following stories like this one to ensure that the city’s streets and highways are as safe as possible. We wish that accidents never happened, especially those that may have been avoided. In this case, Craig and Kathryn Nyberg say that a median barrier may have helped do exactly that, after a vehicle came crashing into their lane.

The Nyberg’s were driving on SR-56 when, according to official reports, a vehicle traveling nearly 100 MPH in the other direction, crossed the median and caused a head-on collision. Four weeks after the accident, the couple is still recovering from a myriad of injuries. Thankfully none of them life-threatening.

According to 10News, this is the third incident of median-crossing on SR-56, resulting in an accident.

Although we do our best, along with city and state agencies, at promoting safe and effective traffic elements, accidents are part of life. When they do happen, we are here as a resource to each and every victim, ready to answer questions about insurance and your rights, anytime, day or night.

Motorist Identified in Fatal Collision With Dump Truck on SR60

Getting to the bottom of a tragic accident shouldn’t fall on a victim’s family. A crash may pose thousands of questions and we would like to answer them. The lawyers at Steinger, Iscoe and Greene have years of experience fighting for justice and compensation in the wake of a loss, so that those involved do not have to.

The driver who was pronounced deceased at the scene after her vehicle was struck by a dump truck, has been identified as Marco Island resident Barbara Korpas.

Korpas, 57, was traveling north on 82nd avenue when a dump truck driven by James Rippey, 65, of Okeechobee, collided with the driver’s side of Korpas’ Ford Explorer. According to FHP, Rippey entered the intersection of SR60 attempting to make a left-hand turn when Korpas failed to yield. The dump truck became overturned in the fast lane of SR 60 eastbound, while Korpas’ vehicle ended up north-facing on the concrete median of the intersection.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Barbara Korpas’ family and loved ones, as they sort through the aftermath of this tragic loss. We understand this delicate time is laden with grief, but also with many questions about your rights. Accidents caused by the negligence of others deserve legal attention right away, so that those responsible may be held accountable for their actions. Our attorney’s at Steinger, Iscoe and Greene can help you through this confusing time, by offering our years of experience fighting for justice.

Motorcycle Ride Ends Tragically in Miami

South Florida, with its warm sun and coastal breezes, is an ideal place to enjoy a motorcycle. Amidst the diversion however, there is also risk on the roads. Here at Steinger, Iscoe and Greene, we have seen a number of motorcycle accidents that have resulted not from poor riding but from other motorists not paying enough attention to the roads and others sharing them. Even in the best of conditions, there are many variables that can cause a commute to go awry.

According to FHP, Cristobal Fuentes, 41, was heading eastbound on SW 8th Street on his motorcycle when Susan Greenberg, 56, was attempting to turn into Gator Park from a westbound lane. To avoid being hit by the vehicle, Fuentes swerved, losing control and hitting Greenberg’s pickup truck. He was thrown from his bike on impact. Unable to stop in time, the car behind Greenberg, driven by Juan Casas, 61, hit Fuentes.

Tragically, Fuentes was later pronounced deceased at Kendall Regional Hospital.

This is a delicate time and our thoughts go out to all the individuals and families involved in this unfortunate accident. In times of such shock and loss, we as a firm and resource in the community, strive to be a beacon of light amongst the fog of confusion and sadness that follows tragedies, like the recent passing of Cristobal Fuentes. We wish all who knew and loved him peace in the wake of this accident.

Our firm hopes you never need our services due to a loss, but if you do, know that we stand by our unwavering commitment of bringing justice to light. Our goal is to not only make you aware of your rights, but fight for the full compensation you deserve for injuries or loss.

Three Lives Claimed After Colliding With 18-Wheeler

According to official reports, Ricardo Tanguma, 39, and Andres Hinojosa Jr., 24, of San Diego and Adrian Trevino, 32, of Alice, TX, have passed away, while David Trevino, Jr., 24, also of Alice is in critical condition after the pickup truck they were riding in crashed into the back of a parked 18-wheeler. The semi was stationary in the right shoulder of Hwy 44 when the accident occurred, shortly after 5 am.

Our thoughts are with the families of the men that were lost in this tragic accident and wish a speedy and full recovery for David Trevino, Jr.

Knowing the wake of sadness that a fatal collision leaves, we wish that there was a way to keep them from happening. While we know defensive, alert driving helps guard against a crash, there are a myriad of reasons why they still may occur. We at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene hope you never have to deal with tragedy, but if you do, we want to help.

Yes, You Can Afford a Lawyer

currencyCost: It’s something most law firm websites don’t like to talk about. An experienced lawyer can oftentimes make a difference in personal injury cases, but the reputation is that lawyers are expensive. And most of the time that reputation is accurate. Hiring a lawyer can be expensive. But at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene, it’s not – in fact, unless we win money for you, hiring us is free.

Here’s how.

Different Types of Fees

Different law firms bill their clients differently. Most law firms will charge by the hour, so that the more of their time your case takes, the more you end up paying.

That might be fair in theory, but for accident victims we find that structure objectionable. Whether you were in a car accident, you were hurt at work, or you were injured by medical malpractice or a faulty product, you probably didn’t have money set aside to pay for a lawyer. In fact, most of the people we work with are in the opposite situation: they have medical costs and other bills piling up, and they need help in a hurry.

If we charged by the hour, we couldn’t help most of our clients at all.

Instead, Steinger, Iscoe & Greene uses what’s called a contingency fee. Most law firms don’t use contingency fees, but we feel it’s better for the client and makes quality legal help accessible for everyone.

No Fee Unless You Win

A contingency fee means you pay nothing up front – no retainer, no filing fees, no court costs. We’ll even pay for the cost of expert witness help. You pay nothing.

If you end up winning money, then and only then will we charge you a percentage of the money won, plus costs. That means that not only do you pay nothing up front, but the amount you end up paying will never dwarf the amount you won. You’ll always come out ahead.

We call this the No Fee Guarantee® and it has several benefits for clients:

• You have no risk
• Our lawyers have even more incentive to win the largest amount for you possible
• Anyone can afford to hire legal representation

What are the chances you will win a settlement or verdict? That depends on the details of your case, and Steinger, Iscoe & Greene will also provide a free case evaluation so you can decide for yourself whether to pursue your claim. This evaluation costs nothing and comes with no commitment to hire our firm. Find out more by contacting us today.

Steinger, Iscoe & Greene Getting
Bigger and Better

With 30 lawyers in our firm, Steinger, Iscoe & Greene was ranked as one of the top 100 law firms in Florida by the Daily Business Review.

The ranking was based both on voluntary disclosures from the law firms themselves and on extrapolated data from the firms’ websites. Rankings are also based on total number of attorneys in the firm.

The firms that the Daily Business Review surveyed have a major presence in Florida. Some are national firms that generate substantial revenue in Florida. Gross revenue represents legal fees billed and collected in the firm’s latest fiscal year.

“Of counsel lawyers” are counted with associates as salaried employees whose compensation is an element of the overhead costs of a law firm when revenue per lawyer is calculated. Profit per equity partner is an average.

The Daily Business Review is the official court newspaper for Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach County. Its superb service, court newspaper designation, as well as over 80 years of service have earned the Daily Business Review the reputation as South Florida’s most reliable source.

This year Steinger, Iscoe & Greene was ranked 76 in the top 100 law firms. Last year in the same survey, we were unranked.

Changes Coming to Florida’s Car Insurance Laws

April 2, 2012

Curbing fraud in the state’s no-fault car insurance law was a top priority for 2012 for lawmakers and the governor, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

New legislation alters how drivers use their insurance, attempts to reduce crash-related lawsuits, and seeks to lower insurance rates.

After Gov. Scott signs the bill into law, some of the changes will begin this summer, but drivers won’t see their policies change drastically until 2013.

The measure (HB 119) includes a requirement that insurance companies reduce personal injury protection (PIP) premiums at least 10 percent by Oct. 1, and 25 percent by 2014.

PIP reform restores no-fault car insurance to its core mission, lawmakers say.

“My goal was to put PIP back into its original character as emergency treatment to get you back on your feet,” said Sen. Joe Negron, the Stuart Republican who helped craft the changes.

The Senator also said, “There is a strong alliance of senators who are going to hold the insurance companies’ feet to the fire and make sure they reduce rates dramatically.”

Tougher licensing standards for medical clinics, a new statewide anti-fraud task force, wider use of long-form accident reports, and stiff penalties for providers caught defrauding the system are some of the expected changes.

Gene Hackman hit by motor vehicle while cycling in Florida Keys

January 16, 2012

Oscar-winning actor Gene Hackman suffered injuries after being hit by a pickup truck on Saturday afternoon in the Florida Keys, according to the Daily Mail.

The 81-year-old legendary star was struck while riding his bicycle on Islamorada Street, called the Old Highway, in Tavernier, Florida, around 3 p.m.

The truck came up from behind, and the impact knocked Hackman off his bike. He was thrown onto a grassy shoulder, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.

Because he was on an island, he was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital on the mainland.

Early reports that Hackman had suffered serious head injuries were dismissed by his spokeswoman.

She said, “Gene Hackman was taken to a hospital for routine tests after being bumped from behind while riding his bike today in the Keys.

“He’s suffered minor bumps and bruises and is already on his way home.”

Hackman was not wearing a helmet.

According to USA Today, the accident was far more startling than life threatening.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating. No charges have yet been filed.

During a career that has spanned five decades, Hackman has won two Academy Awards and been nominated for three others.

Cameras record vehicle crashes

December 26, 2011

“What these videos don’t show are the victims. Each year hundreds are killed and more than 100,000 are injured nationwide in red-light running related collisions,” said Charles Territo of American Traffic Solutions, Inc.

Territo is referring to the red light cameras videos, which catch cars crashing through Florida intersections, particularly in Gulfport and St. Petersburg.

American Traffic Solutions, Inc., provides a YouTube video of these crashes at red lights in Florida. Not for the feint of heart, the video includes a pair of Gulfport fender benders and ends with a high-impact crash in St. Petersburg.

The cameras are not just catching violators, but they are also providing stark visuals of car accidents caused by motorists who blow through red lights, according to Old Northeast Downtown St. Pete Patch.

In 2009, 62 Floridians were killed in red-light running related accidents.

Saving Lives

Red-light safety cameras change driver behavior and help save lives.

Each month, the state of Florida collects more than $3 million from red-light runners. This revenue is distributed to the general fund, the trauma center fund, and the brain and spinal cord research trust fund.

“The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety estimates that over time, cities using cameras see a 24 percent reduction in red-light running related fatalities,” Territo said.

Nationwide cell phone ban for drivers urged by NTSB

December 16, 2011

Based on a decade of investigations into distraction-related accidents, on Tuesday the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) called for a nationwide ban on all cell phone use by drivers. This recommendation is the most far-reaching one to date, according to the New York Times.

The NTSB is urging states to ban drivers from using hands-free devices such as wireless headsets.

Deborah Hersman, chairwoman of the NTSB, said the safety concerns were not just about keeping hands on the wheel and eyes on the road, but also about making sure people focus on the act of driving.

“It’s about cognitive distraction. It’s about not being engaged at the task at hand,” she said.

“It’s going to be very unpopular with some people,” she said. “We’re not here to win a popularity contest. We’re here to do the right thing. This is a difficult recommendation, but it’s the right recommendation and it’s time.”

Six states, including Florida, ban local officials from enacting laws which would ban cell phone use..

Florida state Sen. Jack Latvala told the St. Petersburg Times that there is “absolutely no chance” the state will ban cell phones while driving.

Why is an eyewitness’s account so often unreliable?–part 2

December 9, 2011

Eyewitnesses’ accounts are partly unreliable because the brain does not retain many specifics and is highly susceptible to suggestion, reports the New York Times.

“Memory is weak in eyewitness situations because it’s overloaded,” said Barbara Tversky psychology professor at Columbia University’s Teachers’ College in New York. “An event happens so fast, and when the police question you, you probably weren’t concentrating on the details they’re asking about. When we don’t remember, we make inferences.”

The process of police questioning and prepping for trial can crystallize a person’s own faulty reconstruction.

One of the earliest and more famous experiments to demonstrate that memories are malleable was conducted by Elizabeth Loftus, an early pioneer of witness memory research and a psychology professor at the University of California, Irvine.

In a study published in The Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, she asked participants to view films of fender-benders in which no car windows or headlights were broken.

Later, the subjects who were asked how fast the cars were going when they “smashed” into each other–as opposed to “hit”–were more likely to report speeding and describe shattered glass that they never actually saw.

Eye witnesses found not to be reliable

December 7, 2011

Even thought it is revered as the gold standard of the criminal justice system, eye witness testimony is not reliable, according to the New York Times.

Scientists believe that memory is not so much a record of the past as a rough sketch that can be modified even by the simple act of telling a story.

For scientists, memory has been on trial for decades. Courts and public opinion are only now catching up with the verdict.

About 75 percent of DNA-based exonerations have come in cases where witnesses got it wrong. Researchers are not surprised by that percentage.

In November, the Supreme Court heard its first oral arguments in more than three decades that question the validity of using witness testimony. In August, the New Jersey Supreme Court set new rules to cope with failings in witness accounts.

Witness testimony should be viewed more like trace evidence rather than the centerpiece of prosecution, scientists say.

In court, witnesses are asked to tell the truth and nothing but the truth. They think that they do, but the mind is sometimes prone to blur the distinction between reality and fantasy.

Why is a witness’s account so often unreliable? Check out our blog on Friday to find out the answers to that question.

3 Miami traffic accidents involve 3 officers

November 9, 2011

The Miami Heraldreports that two Miami police officers and one Florida highway patrol officer were involved in three separate wrecks on Friday. These accidents resulted in three people injured: a driver, an officer, and a pedestrian.

Early Friday, two police officers were dispatched to help another officer needing emergency assistance at North Miami Avenue and Eight Street.

In the first crash at Northeast First Avenue and Sixth Street, a black Audi collided with a Miami police car. The police car was going west on Sixth Street with its emergency lights on. The Audi driver and the officer were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.

In the second accident a police officer crashed into a pole at Northwest First Avenue and Eleventh Street. Police said that he was responding to the same incident and was not injured.

The third accident occurred at about 7:20 p.m. when a highway patrolman struck a 15-year-old boy after making a u-turn near Commercial Blvd., west of the Florida Turnpike.

The boy was taken to Broward General Medical center with nonlife-threatening injuries.

“It’s unclear if the boy stepped out in his way,” a Miami sergeant said. The crash is still under investigation.

Texting While Driving Doubles Reaction Time, Study Says

October 7, 2011

A new study has shown that texting behind the wheel is even more hazardous that previously imagined.

The test — conducted by researchers at Texas A&M University’s Texas Transportation Institute — looked at 42 drivers, putting them on an 11-mile test track. The study used flashing lights to test drivers’ reaction times. During one “drive,” their reaction time was tested while sending and receiving texts. In another, drivers were told to concentrate completely on the road.

Drivers who were texting were shown to have a three to four second reaction time, while drivers who weren’t texting had only a one to two second reaction time.

“Essentially texting while driving doubles a driver’s reaction time,” said Christine Yager, who led the study. “That makes a driver less able to respond to sudden roadway dangers.”

It was also determined that texting drivers are 11 times more likely to miss seeing the flashing lights altogether.

“The act of reading and writing a text message are equally impairing and equally dangerous,” Yager told Reuters.

Domestic Argument Causes Fatal Florida Car Crash

October 3, 2011

A man died in a Seminole County, Florida, rollover crash over the weekend after getting into an argument with his girlfriend, who was driving the car in which he was a passenger.

The car was traveling east on Saturday evening on I-4 near Lake Mary Boulevard, reports WFTV.com, when the man and woman started to argue. In the backseat were two male children, ages eight and 10.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports that the male passenger caused the 33-year-old female driver to lose control of her car and veer off the road. The car then overturned, ejecting the man from the vehicle and killing him. The man’s identity has yet to be released to the public, pending notification of next of kin.

The driver was critically injured in the crash, and the two children were also seriously injured. All are being treated at Orlando Regional Medical Center.

Orlando Toddler Injured When Car Backs Out of Driveway

September 9, 2011

A 15-month-old Orlando, Florida, boy was run over by a car on Tuesday, September 6, and is now in critical condition at an Orlando hospital. The Florida Highway Patrol says that a driver backed over the boy outside a home in Orange County around 4 p.m.

The driver is a 50-year-old male who backed his Lexus out of the driveway and hit the boy, dragging him into the street. The man then left the scene at San Sebastian Circle in the Pine Hills area.

The man was visiting the home to ask about getting his daughter’s hair styled by the tot’s mother, says Florida Highway Patrol Seargent Kim Montes.

He was arrested two hours later and has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident that caused serious injury, driving with a suspended license, and backing improperly. He has told officers that the boy’s family beat him up after the accident, though Montes told The Orlando Sentinel that they’ve found no evidence of that.

Florida Introduces Prescription Drug-Monitoring Database

September 2, 2011

As of Wednesday, any time a person in Florida receives a prescription medication, his name and his doctor’s name will be entered into a prescription drug-monitoring database that aims to reduce doctor shopping and deter physicians from over-prescribing.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that supporters of the database hope it’ll go a long way toward fighting Florida’s prescription drug problem, which has flourished in recent years. Powerful, addictive prescription drugs have become readily available in the Sunshine State, so much so that law enforcers now say that abusers and dealers travel to Florida to stock up.

Little to no regulation on prescription drugs has made it easier for Florida doctors to be lax, too. In 2010 90 of the top 100 oxycodone-purchasing doctors practiced medicine in Florida.

The creation of this database was signed into law by Governor Charlie Christ in 2009, and though it was supposed to be ready last year it was delayed by disputes about patient-privacy.

“It’s long overdue,” said Senator Mike Fasano. “But I’m very pleased that it’s going to happen … I believe that once this is up and running for a while, that we will actually start seeing a reduction in doctor shopping.

Steinger, Iscoe & Greene Pick Up the Tab for Stellar Kids Camp

June 2, 2011

When Coach John Mistretta–founder of the West Palm Beach, Florida, non-profit Stellar Kids, Inc .–approached Steinger, Iscoe & Greene about supporting this summer’s Stellar Kids Camp, our law firm knew it was the opportunity we’d been looking for.

“People today, more than ever, could use a little help,” says founding firm partner Michael Steinger. “Coach John has been serving our community for years with a steadfast commitment to youth development. Based on his history and vision through Stellar Kids Camp, we had full confidence that our support would directly benefit the parents and children who could use some good news the most. I hope that our investment can inspire other local businesses to invest in the programs and visionaries who are making a real difference in the lives of real people and the future of our world, our youth.”

With the financial support of Steinger, Iscoe & Greene, this summer’s leasing expense for Stellar Kids Camp is no longer limiting Coach John’s vision to positively impact more children’s lives. 100% of the $10,000 contribution by Steinger, Iscoe & Greene will go directly to the School District of Palm Beach County and School Principal Fund for the leasing of Odyssey Middle School for the eight weeks of camp, June 6 – July 28th.

For the past decade, Coach John has held summer camp annually for upwards of 170 children without a single major contributor. Through his steadfast dedication to youth empowerment alongside the Sherriff’s Department, School Boards, Correctional Facility Counselors, and Afterschool Program Directors, Coach John is able to minimize his operating costs for camp as vendors, community foundations, and activity providers honor his commitment with significantly reduced rates for coaching, class instructors, activity rental equipment, sporting equipment, and more.

Stellar Kids Camp is significantly less expensive than other camps in the area – Monday – Thursday 9am – 4pm is only $95 a week. Now that the tab has been picked up for use of Odyssey Middle School’s grounds for the summer, Coach John is ecstatic to offer families who can use a break this summer partial scholarships, bringing camp tuition down to only $50 a week.

For more information, or to donate to Stellar Kids Camp, so even more children can attend camp this summer, please contact Stellar Kids Camp Founder Coach John Mistretta at 561.577.3399 or send your tax-deductible donations to Stellar Kids Inc., 7394 Hazelwood Circle, Lake Worth, Florida 33467.

Citizens Chase Down Hit-and-Run Offender in Ft. Lauderdale

May 24, 2011

A 30-year-old Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, man who tried to flee after critically injuring a motorcyclist on Interstate 95 early Sunday was chased down by two citizens who witnessed the crash.

The crash occurred when a Kia Sorrento hit a motorcyclist, tossing him into the air and onto the highway.

Two witnesses immediately began a pursuit of the Kia, which escaped the crash site with its airbags deployed and a bumper hanging from the front of the car.

The two vehicles followed the SUV for five miles before boxing it in.

“I yanked him out of the car and I put a headlock on him and held him on the concrete,” said one of the men. “His partner came around to try to help him, and I kicked him and he ran away. I just held the guy until the cops came … The adrenaline just rushed in. My wife always says to watch out. I just yanked him out, he wasn’t getting away.”

Sgt. Mark Wysocky of the Florida Highway Patrol said the Kia’s driver was arrested and charged with careless driving, driving under the influence with serious bodily injury and property damage, and leaving the scene of a crash with injuries.

Wysocky told The Sun Sentinel he doesn’t recommend that other people try to apprehend criminals themselves.

The 42-year-old driver of the motorcycle is in critical but stable condition.

Man Taken into Custody for Hit and Run Fatality in Miami

May 19, 2011

Miami Police took a 23-year-old male into custody early Thursday morning on suspicion that he was involved in a Miami, Florida, hit and run crash yesterday that killed a 71-year-old Aventura, Florida, woman.

When police arrived at the man’s house to question him about the accident, they discovered that he was in possession of cocaine and arrested him. He was also taken in because of an open bench warrant for driving on a suspended license.

“He was arrested on unrelated charges,”Miami Police Detective Eddie Avila told WSVN“.He still remains, at this point, a person of interest.”

The woman who was killed in the accident was on her way to work at 6 a.m. on Wednesday morning in her silver Honda Accord on US 1 and Southwest 17th Avenue when a white pickup truck plowed into her. Her car spun out of control and into a tree.

Police determined the man was a person of interest after they received a tip that he’d bragged about being involved in a hit and run accident.

The man’s truck, which had sustained damage to its front end, has been towed and impounded by police. The man claims that his truck already had that damage when he purchased it.

Police are testing paint samples from the truck and reviewing red light cameras to see if they line up with the man’s claim that he was at home at the time of the crash.

Florida Doctor Found Guilty of Groping Patient

May 16, 2011

Last Tuesday, a Florida doctor received a guilty verdict for misdemeanor battery for groping a 21-year-old patient in 2007. County Judge Anne Wansboro sentenced Dr. Gunwant Dhaliwal, 51, to 10 days in jail and ordered him to pay $625 in court costs. Michael Feiner, a firm partner from Steinger, Iscoe & Greene’s Port St. Lucie office, has a civil trial for the case set to begin in September. Feiner is representing the young ladies.

The case stemmed from a patient allegation that Dhaliwal, a board-certified internist who’s operated Gulf View Walk-in Clinics in New Port Richey and Spring Hill since 1993, pushed her back on an exam table, lifted her shirt, and fondled her breasts at his New Port Richey office in May 2007. The patient sought Dhaliwal’s help after a car accident and complained to him of pain in her left side, neck, shoulder, and arm, but reported that Dhaliwal kept asking her about her chest.

Dhaliwal testified on the stand that he did not touch the woman’s breasts and his defense witness, a nurse at his office, said that she was in the room and didn’t see anything out of the ordinary.

This was the first of three criminal trials that have developed from molestation allegations against Dhaliwal. On August 1, he’ll return to court to face a similar charge from another woman. This woman alleges that she was seeking employment with Dhaliwal and went to his office so he could demonstrate a facial cosmetic procedure on her. She says Dhaliwal lifted her shirt and groped her chest.

Driver Hits and Kills 10-Year-Old at Bus Stop

May 12, 2011

A 10-year-old boy was hit by a pickup truck and killed in Clermont, Florida, on Tuesday morning while he waited for his school bus at Lake Minneola Shores Road and Oklahoma Street.

The Minneola Elementary School student was pronounced dead at South Lake Hospital.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials put a detaining order on the driver of the truck—a 39-year-old male. On Wednesday morning the man faced a judge.

The Florida State Highway Patrol says the man doesn’t have a license and has a prior charge for DUI in 2002.

Troopers say the man was speeding when he hit the fourth-grader. They say he was wearing his seatbelt and was not impaired at the time of the accident.

Neighbors who live near the bus stop told The Daily Commercial that they’ve worried for years about the safety of the stop where the boy was killed and that they believe this accident could have been avoided. Because of a steep hill behind the bus stop, children are required to stand close to the road during rush hour traffic.

Toddler Seriously Injured in University of Central Florida Building

May 6, 2011

On Tuesday afternoon a 19-month-old boy fell 13 feet from the second floor interior balcony at the University of Central Florida’s Millican Hall, which was built during the late 1960s.

The toddler reportedly ran toward a railing and fell between a gap in the floor and the window, striking a window ledge during his fall. He was conscious and bleeding when paramedics arrived.

The toddler is being treated for skull fractures at Orlando’s Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and requires plastic surgery, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The toddler was with his two siblings and 32-year-old father, who is a student at the university.

Just after the accident occurred university employees installed a Plexiglass barrier to cover the gap through which the boy fell. Crews were also dispatched to determine other potential safety hazards around the university.

University police released grainy video footage that shows the child on the ground after falling.

Police told the Orlando Sentinel that the toddler’s father was nearby during the fall and that they anticipated no criminal charges.

Influx of Personal Injury Claims in Central Florida

May 4, 2011

Personal injury protection payments and claims in Central Florida have spiked, according to a report released last month by the state’s insurance regulators. The region in question—predominately Orlando—now lays claim to the second-highest claim rates in the state, with 10,000 more claims filed in 2010 than in 2007.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that along with the increase in claims come a surplus of fraud allegations from insurers.

The claims stem from the Florida law that mandates all drivers to carry at least $10,000 in personal injury protection insurance, which pays the medical bills of the policyholder in an auto accident.

This law is intended to reduce the number of lawsuits and to protect those without health insurance, but it’s been plagued by fraudulent claims.

As a result, a number of legislative bills have been introduced to counteract the problem. One such bill would make it more difficult for policyholders and health care providers to file claims.

Currently, 56 percent of personal injury claims in Florida result in payment.

Who’s to Blame for Harm from Smoking?

The battle of smokers vs. tobacco companies is a hot topic for families in Florida who have lost a loved one to cancer.

According to an article from the Richmond Times-Dispatch, juries are ordering tobacco companies to pay millions of dollars in damages while saying smokers share blame for their illnesses.

The article says the issue is specific findings by the class-action jury that the tobacco companies were negligent, whether they hid or lied about the risks of smoking and whether they sold Florida defective products, and judges now must tell juries hearing the individual cases that they have to accept those findings without argument. They are only to decide whether the illness that a person has was related to the cigarette smoking and assess damages.

Who do you think is the most responsible? Should tobacco companies have to pay if someone dies from smoking-related problems?

If you or someone you know has been affected by consuming tobacco products, contact the Florida wrongful death lawyers at Steinger, Iscoe & Green.

Three Palm Beach auto accidents create a commuting mess

April 1, 2008

The Sun-Sentinel reported that three Palm Beach auto accidents caused motorists to have a long commute this morning.

The Florida auto accidents, including one rollover crash, may have caused significant delays as early as 7 a.m., according to the Highway Patrol.

The accidents were occurring one immediately after another, which caused greater delays on the highways in Palm Beach.

There were no serious injuries from the Palm Beach auto accidents.

School faculty denied Florida workers’ compensation

March 22, 2008

The Daytona Beach News Journal reported that faculty and students will be moving back into a school building two months after teachers complained about classrooms making them ill. Teachers are fighting to recover Florida workers’ compensation benefits for their suffering, but have met resistance.

The carpet in the school contained mold and has been replaced. The classrooms have undergone several cleanings and inspections, but teachers are still concerned.

The faculty is continuing to seek Florida workers’ compensation coverage for their medical expenses, even though they had been earlier denied by school district officials.

One consultant inspected the building and said that air tests have lead to contradictory conclusions because of the lack of standardized methods of inspection.

Officials said that their decision to move back into the school building was based on one particular report and the completion of some recommended repairs.

Boat capsizes with 6 aboard in Florida Inlet

March 18, 2008

A boat carrying six people capsized in a Florida inlet, forcing the family to swim to a nearby island and flag down a passing boater for help, according to the Palm Beach Post.

The Okeechobee boating accident victims had camped over the weekend at Shark Island and were returning to shore when the Florida boating accident occurred.

The family swam back to the island wearing life jackets, and they flagged a boater who carried them near where their car was parked.

Coast Guard crews have been picking up debris from the water and searching for the remains of the boat accident, but have yet to find the boat.

2 dead, 2 injured in I-95 rollover accident

Two women were killed when the car they were in lost control, rolled over, and crashed into a sign in a tragic Florida auto accident. The two other passengers in the car were rushed to the hospital. One of them is in serious condition.

The two women killed were ejected from the car, which points to the possibility of seatbelts not being worn in the car. This Florida auto accident is being investigated, as alcohol has not been ruled out as a contributing factor.

Supreme Court ruling could have serious consequences for injured victims

The Supreme Court recently handed down a ruling regarding defective medical devices that may have serious ramification for the victims of Florida defective medical product injuries. A Florida defective medical device injury can be life-altering and extremely painful; injuries suffered from devices that were negligently manufactured—such as an artificial hip implant laden with bacteria or a painkiller patch that leaks and exposes users to harmful levels of dangerous drugs—can even result in death.

The Supreme Court ruled that a medical device manufacturer, despite if one of their devices is later proven to be defective, is not liable for damages to a harmed individual if the device was originally approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This ruling comes as a huge surprise to most Americans, who expect our courts to be able to help us if we fall victim to a Florida defective medical device injury.

Another heparin recall; allergic reactions possibly life-threatening

There has been an urgent nationwide recall of heparin units manufactured by Baxter Healthcare Corporation. The recall is the result of an increased number of adverse reactions to the drug, some of which may be life-threatening. This recall is different and apparently unrelated to the heparin recall reported earlier in the week.

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), reactions to the most recently-recalled heparin doses include stomach pain or discomfort, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, decreased or low blood pressure, chest pain, fast heart rate, dizziness, fainting, and a host of other dangerous drug injury symptoms.

The recalled heparin could cause serious Florida drug injury and even death.

Heparin-filled syringes recalled due to serious health risk

A North Carolina company has issued a nationwide recall of heparin and saline pre-filled syringes because people in several states have become seriously ill due to a bacterial infection found in the syringes. The syringes are used for a variety of home medical uses, such as cleaning out catheter tubes.

The bacterial contaminant is known as Serratia marcescens, which according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), “could present a serious adverse health consequence that could lead to life-threatening injuries and/or death.”

The bacteria can potentially cause serious Florida personal injury and death.

Ortho Evra Warning Label Strengthened

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently updated the label on the Ortho Evra birth control patch, warning users that a new study shows users of the Ortho Evra birth control patch are at an elevated risk of developing serious blood clots, which can result in a serious Florida drug injury.

The blood clots are known as venous thromboembolisms (VTEs) and occur, according to the study, at a higher rate in women using the birth control patch than women taking birth control pills.

Blood clots can cause serious Florida personal injury and even death.

Vioxx Settlement Update

On February 29, 2008, roughly 45,000 plaintiffs who suffered heart attack or stroke that qualify for the Vioxx settlement must enroll if they wish to be receive part of the massive $4.85 billion fund set aside by lawyers and the pharmaceutical company Merck for those injured by the painkiller drug Vioxx.

In order to validate the money set aside—which could be taken off the table if certain criteria is not met—85% of those claimants must enroll in the settlement.

The settlement amount is being divided up by tens of thousands of people, and some victims are claiming the share set aside for them isn’t enough. One woman who suffered a Vioxx-related heart attack lost her job and had to pay more than $200,000 in medical bills. Her share of the settlement is roughly $530,000, but she feels that since she suffered greatly, that amount is not enough.

Vioxx is believed to have been a contributing factor in Florida drug injuries—namely heart attacks and strokes—and has left many Florida drug injury victims seeking compensation for their pain, suffering, and considerable medical bills.

FDA Takes Action Against Hormone Therapy Drugs

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has taken action against seven different pharmacies for their false and misleading claims over the safety and effectiveness of their “bio-identical hormone replacement therapy” drugs (BHRTs). The BRHTs were being promoted by these pharmaceutical companies as being better than FDA-approved menopausal hormone therapy drugs.

The pharmacies also claimed these BHRT drugs prevent and or treat Alzheimer’s, stroke, cancer, and other sicknesses, which is scientifically unproven at this time. The drugs all contain estriol, a compound that isn’t approved and which has not been proven safe or effective for human use.

Use of unapproved FDA drugs can result in serious Florida drug injury and possibly death. Florida drug injuries occur far too commonly and can have serious health complications.

Brush fire, fog cause deadly pileup in Florida

Four people died in a massive Florida auto accident early Wednesday morning after a brush fire blanketed the interstate and obscured the road from vision. Thirty eight people were injured in the Florida auto accidents resulting from the fire. There were no Florida fire and burn injuries resulting from the brush fire that burned 400 acres of land and produced the thick blanket of smoke that caused the loss of life.

Eyewitnesses claimed the driving conditions worsened suddenly and the smoke was so thick “you couldn’t see your hand in front of your face.”

Avandia gets boxed warning cautioning of heart attacks

The Food and Drug Administration has just informed healthcare professionals of new, important warnings that will be added to the type II diabetes medication Avandia. Diabetes affects 20.8 million people in the United States, many of whom are potential Florida drug injury victims.

The Avandia boxed warning will now warn that Avandia may be associated with an increased risk of myocardial ischemic events (such as angina) or myocardial infarction (heart attack occurring because of a lack of blood supplied to the heart).

Florida drug injuries are all too common in this day and age and can have life-altering consequences. The FDA has advised healthcare professionals to closely monitor patients who take Avandia for cardiovascular risks and Florida drug injuries.

Florida traumatic brain injury victim awarded $50M

A jury awarded $50 million to a family who was hit by a drunk driver three years ago. Their son was left with a serious Florida traumatic brain injury, then four years old at the time. The accident shattered the boy’s skull, lodging bone in his brain which had to be removed with parts of the boy’s brain.

The father suffered a serious Florida head injury in addition to a ruptured spleen and diaphragm. He has not been able to return to work since the serious Florida auto accident.

The drunk driver, who later pleaded guilty to DUI, was sentenced to five years in prison for his role in the serious Florida auto accident he caused.
