Did you find a construction defect in your new Florida home?

There’s nothing quite like walking into a new home and dreaming of all the ways you can use its space. When the walls are clear and there’s nothing staunching the flow of sunlight, the home isn’t empty—it’s full of promise. But many new Florida homeowners have seen those promises betrayed.

Common types of construction defects

If you're taking on a construction project, such as building a new home, you hope that everything goes as planned from beginning to end. Unfortunately, this doesn't always happen, as a variety of construction defects can get in the way.

Recovering from a crash as a bodybuilder

Motor vehicle collisions can be devastating for anyone, but for some people, such as competitive bodybuilders or those who spend a lot of time working on their physique, an accident can be especially devastating. For example, a bodybuilder may be forced to drop out of a competition that they were preparing for, and they may have put months or even years of effort into preparing for the event. Unfortunately, a devastating accident injury can derail these plans and leave victims unable to keep working out.

Detailing your duty of care

You certainly do not want anyone to be hurt in your home or on your property in Sarasota to be hurt, so you likely do all that is needed to protect whoever you invite to enter. Yet many have come to members of our team here at Dana J. Watts Attorney at Law questioning what liability they may have (if any) for injuries incurred by trespassers on their lands. The last thing that you want to have to deal with is a civil action launched by one who was never supposed to be on your land in the first place, so understanding the duty of care you owe to trespassers is vitally important. 

Driver runs red light in Moore Haven, kills 2

Despite news of car accidents in Sarasota being fairly common, most likely assume that such an incident may never happen to them. They may believe that by obeying the rules of the road and practicing defensive driving strategies, they will be able to avoid car accidents altogether. While there is something to be said about how safe driving translates to a general increased sense of safety on the road, people cannot plan for the actions of others, and all it takes is one negligent or careless driver to involve others in accidents that they not only may have never thought they would be a part of, but also could have not comprehended the extent of damages they might face.
