When it comes to charitable giving, it’s not just the cash that counts.

In this difficult economy, many Floridians who used to make generous donations to non-profit organizations have had to cut back on their charitable giving. For a lot of us, our good intentions have had to take a back seat to buying groceries and paying bills, especially if a family member is unemployed or we are struggling with debts. Yet we still want to help. We know that there are thousands of families with needs greater than ours. We feel a strong commitment to help others, whether because of religious beliefs or a spirit of community . . . or both. What can we do?

    SUV Rollovers

    SUVs are among the most popular vehicles of cars on the road – they ferry children to soccer games, mom to the grocery store, or the whole family on a vacation adventure.

  • Unsafe Products

    Unsafe Products

    We believe these recalls are much like shutting the barn door after the horse is out. Our Florida product liability attorneys recognize the “smoke and mirrors” often employed by pharmaceutical companies, toy companies, and automakers. Rather than lose millions of dollars by recalling defective products that endanger our health and safety, they choose to profit by hiding the defects and continuing to make and sell defective products. With this unconscionable strategy, they take a carefully calculated risk that they will generate profits greater than the costs of lawsuits if they should get caught. Visit one of our Florida product liability law firms for a consultation.
