[FAQ] What Is A Criminal Law Attorney? New Port Richey Criminal Defense

 

“At its core, criminal law is really just the set of rules governing how we behave, and when criminal laws are violated, are punishable by incarceration.

Misdemeanors are punishable by a maximum of either 60 days or 1 year, depending on the seriousness, and felonies are punishable by a maximum of either 5 years, life, or death, depending on the seriousness.

If you are accused of violating a criminal law, it is imperative that you have an attorney to help defend you, protect your rights, and ensure you are treated fairly and within the confines of the constitution.

Criminal Consultations are always free, and at the very least, you will leave my office with a very good grasp of the situation you are facing.”

[FAQ] What Happens at a Personal Injury Consultation?

 

“In personal injury cases, initial consultations are always free. Most consultations last an hour at most. And at a minimum, you should bring with you the following:

 

1. A copy of the driver information exchange that you should have gotten from an investigating law enforcement officer, or, if a crash report is already completed, that as well.

2. Your identification card or driver license.

3. All health insurance and Auto insurance cards.

4. Pictures of the accident scene and any injuries you have, you can simply take photos with your cell phone and we can review right from your phone.

5. Information from any medical providers you have seen after the accident.

I try to make the initial consultation as comfortable and low stress as it can be- I understand that you are likely already shaken up and stressed regarding the situation. Once we discuss the facts of the incident, I educate you on the issues that will come into play, and layout a brief road map of what the next couple of months might entail for you. You then begin the healing process and I take over dealing with the insurance companies and other parties.

Talcum Powder Lawsuit – Law Offices of Lucas|Magazine

J&J Found Negligent in First Talc Lawsuit

An increase of recent baby powder lawsuits contend that talcum manufacturers failed to properly warn women of known risks Law Offices of Lucas|Magazineassociated with their products. By some estimates, talcum powder has been linked to a 30 percent increased risk of ovarian cancer.

In 2013, a federal jury in Sioux Falls, South Dakota determined that a woman’s 30-year use of Johnson & Johnson talcum powder contributed to her ovarian cancer. The plaintiff, 56-year-old Deane Berg, did not receive any compensation for her injuries, but after two days of deliberation, the jury concluded that J&J was, in fact, negligent in failing to warn consumers of known risks tied to their talcum powder products.

The talcum powder lawsuit verdict is an encouraging sign for women who feel they have been harmed by their regular use of talc-containing hygiene products. “This is an absolutely great day for women all over the country,” said the plaintiff’s lawyer. “The jury wanted this connection out there in the public. They can’t hide this anymore.”

Harvard University doctor Daniel Cramer testified that “up to 10 percent of all ovarian cancer cases in the U.S. are related to the use of talcum powder,” and as many as 10,000 more ovarian cancer lawsuits could be filed by the end of the year”.

If you or someone you love have been negatively impacted by the use of talcum powder, please contact the Law Offices of Lucas|Magazine for a no-obligation case evaluation. Please call (727) 849-5353 for more information.

How Long Will It Take To Settle My Case?

 

Video Transcription:

“Hi, my name is Martin Macyszyn with the law offices of Lucas Magazine.

We’re asked quite frequently, “How long does it take to get my case settled?

No two cases are alike. A case can take mere days or unfortunately can take years to get resolved. There are so many aspects, but a few examples of factors that lengthen a case are policy limits, extent of injury, the county in which the accident occurred, and possibly liability issues that may exist.

Please give us a call at (727) 849-5353 so we may evaluate your case.”

[FAQ] Why Do I Have to Go to Court?

 

Video Transcript:

“Hi, my name is Steve Haskins and I’m an attorney with the law offices of Lucas|Magazine.

We’re asked quite frequently, “Why do you have to go to court? Can’t you guys work out things before fighting in front of a judge?”

Sometimes insurance companies will not do the right thing without being brought to court to a jury trial. Obviously, we try to get your case resolved by way of settlement if it is financially in your best interest. However, sometimes that doesn’t happen without a jury.

We believe that every case deserves individual attention. The recovery of what should be the full compensation for your individual injuries and damages is what we fight for.

Lucas Magazine will be with you every step of the way to make this as easy as possible. Call us today for a free, no obligation consultation.”

[FAQ] What is Litigation?

 

Video Transcription:

“Hi, I’m Steve Haskins with the law offices of Lucas Magazine. Sometimes lawyer verbiage can be a little confusing. So, today I’m going to share with you what litigation is and how our firm stands out in this area.

There are many personal injury attorneys out there in our area, but many of those same personal injury attorneys will not take your case to trial if an unsatisfactory settlement is reached. When you hire Lucas Magazine, we handle your case from intake to trial. We are in the courtroom fighting for your rights.

At Lucas Magazine, we start working on your case the moment you walk into the door. In virtually all cases, insurance companies will not write you a check for your injuries on the spot. The personally injury process is a complicated one, but at Lucas Magazine, we make it easy for you. We have award-winning board, board certified, civil trial attorneys who oversee and handle all of our cases. And most importantly, they will go to trial.

Our litigation paralegal team has many years of experience working in the trial field. Our attorneys, who have over 152 years of experience, will be personally assisting you through depositions, mediations, and most importantly, trial.

Lucas Magazine will be with you every step of the way to make this as easy as possible. Call us today for a free, no obligation consultation.”

Negligent Security- Law Offices of Lucas|Magazine

 

Video Transcription

“Considering the constant changes in Florida’s economy, more people than ever before are finding themselves tenants – whether residential or commercial.

My name is Steve Haskins and I’m an attorney with the law office of Lucas|Magazine. Whether you are a tenant or a landlord, it is very important to understand all your rights and duties. Especially, the ones that you may not be aware that you have.

Under Florida law, a landlord owes a duty to their tenant to protect the tenant from reasonably foreseeable criminal conduct. This means that if you have ever been the victim of a crime on property that is owned by your landlord, you may have a claim against them for damages resulting from your injuries for their negligent failure to provide adequate security. Or, if they were aware that crime was prevalent in that particular area.

Our office is staffed with some of the best litigators in the state who can thoroughly investigate as to whether your landlord should have known an attack was likely to occur.

Please give us a call today for a free consultation if you believe you may have been the victim of negligent security.”
