“Hi, my name is Martin Macyszyn. I am an attorney here at Lucas, Green, and Magazine. I would like to share with you an exciting new feature that this firm has been utilizing. It’s the technology of the Maestro. What is the Maestro? The Maestro is basically a big iPad that you may be using at home today, however, on a much larger scale.LGM Maestro Technoloty

The Maestro technology allows us to utilize it in a mediation setting or in a jury. It allows the adjustor in a mediation to actually visualize the injury by enabling us to zoom in and zoom out on a film of an MRI or an x-ray. Further, in a jury setting it personalizes the accident as well as the injury to the jury. It enables them to actually be in the seat of the car when the accident takes place.

It is an extremely beneficial tool, and we believe here at Lucas, Green, and Magazine, we’re setting the bar for all law firms in the Tampa Bay area to further their goals of their clients and to maximize the settlement that we’re able to get.”

Lucas, Green & Magazine Charity Challenge

Saturday, April 12

1pm EST

Lane Glo Bowl

8631 Old CR 54
New Port Richey, FL 34653 (727) 376-1164

The Lucas, Green & Magazine Charity Challenge is a relaxed, social “event” in which the emphasis is on fun and raising money for Sand Soldiers of America.

Don’t have any “good” bowlers working for your company? Don’t worry because we have taken steps to remove individual “performance anxiety!”

First, there is no “individual” scoring. All bowling is a team effort in which individuals contribute frames to the team game (i.e. one person will roll frames 1 & 6, another frames 2 & 7, another 3 & 8, etc.). And the winner of the games won’t be determined by the team that roles the most strikes. In fact, the object in one game is to roll the lowest score! And finally, each team will be joined by a PBA50 star who will handle any “pressure” shots.

The following is our game menu:

  •   Golf 101: Low score wins, with each bowler being required to knock down at least 1 pin per frame. Frames in which at least 1 pin is not knocked down are marked as a strike. The perfect score is 10.
  •   Yatzee: Teams have 10 frames to collect counts of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10.
  •   Craps: The team rolling the most “7’s” wins.
  •   Easy As 1-2-3: Teams attempt to roll a total game score of exactly “123” without going over.

Are You Prepared to Meet With A Personal Injury Attorney?

Preparing to Meet with your Personal Injury Attorney

If you have been involved in an accident and are preparing for a meeting with a personal injury lawyer, you may be nervous and likely have no idea where to start. First, if your prospective personal injury attorney has sent you a questionnaire, fill it out and return it before your meeting. Second, begin gathering important documents. These may include copies of an accident report, medical bills, hospital records, and more. Finally, you want to be prepared with questions. Here are a few questions to start with:

What are your areas of practice and how much experience do you have?
Graduating from law school and passing the bar exam does not make a lawyer an expert in every possible area of practice. Most attorneys focus their practice on a few specific areas, and it is important to find an attorney with experience in personal injury cases to handle your case.Injury Attorney New Port Richey

How do you handle fees?
Many personal injury lawyers will handle your case on a contingency fee basis. This means that you will only owe the personal injury lawyer if you recover from the other party, and the amount you owe will be a set percentage that varies depending on the amount of the award. In some cases, an attorney may work on an hourly fee or charge a set fee for a certain type of case.

What should I expect?
If you have never had to hire a personal injury attorney before, you likely have no idea about the legal process, the timeline you’re facing, or what else to expect. While you should be wary of any lawyer who promises a big settlement or victory, an experienced personal injury lawyer can explain potential outcomes and what you should expect in your type of case.
At Lucas, Green & Magazine, personal injury law is one of our main practice areas. We have been representing clients since 2000 and have built our firm and our reputation based on hard work and dedication to our clients. Call (727) 849-5353 to schedule a consultation at our New Port Richey, Clearwater or Spring Hill location.

Defensive Driving Strategies

Defensive Driving Strategies to Help Avoid Auto Accidents

A vehicle collision can be detrimental for a number of reasons. In addition to serious physical complications, it may produce significant financial repercussions due to high medical bills and lost wage compensation. However, you can employ several defensive driving strategies to avoid an automobile accident and the subsequent need for a personal injury lawyer.

 

Avoid driving in the left lane.

Otherwise known as the fast lane, the left lane is associated with the highest rate of highway crashes than any other lane. By staying in either the center or right lane, you afford yourself more escape routes to avoid potential accidents. Also, by virtue of its name, the fast lane typically attracts individuals who want to drive speedily, which increases the chance of a collision and the involvement of an auto accident lawyer in cases of injury.

Monitor the traffic in front of you.

Rather than watching only the vehicle immediately ahead of your own, concentrate as well on cars that are a hundred feet beyond. Focusing on these vehicles to determine if they are moving at a steady speed, slowing down, or stopping altogether will allow you the greatest amount of time to respond properly.

Keep an eye on suspicious drivers.

A hugely effective defensive driving strategy is observing other drivers for unsafe driving practices. If you notice a fellow driver sporadically breaking or weaving between lanes, remove yourself from that car’s proximity as quickly and safely as possible. The driver may be tired, intoxicated, or impaired for any number of reasons; regardless, they pose a considerable risk to those around them. To prevent a potential car accident, create as much distance between yourself and that car. If possible, contact authorities if you witness any erratic driving behavior while on the road.

The lawyers of Lucas, Green & Magazine provide auto accident law services to individuals living in New Port Richey, Spring Hill, and Clearwater, Florida. If you have been involved in a vehicle collision and would like to speak to one of our personal injury lawyers, please call us at (727) 849-5353.

Criminal Law Attorney In New Port Richey

Justice and Honor – Hire a Criminal Law Attorney in New Port Richey

Drug dealers and murderers aren’t the only ones who are involved in criminal law cases. The term criminal law itself refers to all laws in a city, state or federal government that exist to prevent illegal crimes or violations of societal rules. The term is also used to denote legal professions in which people who are convicted or accused of crimes are required to fight their case in a court of law. Of course there are also victims who hire a criminal law attorney in New Port Richey to accuse someone who might have criminally wronged them.Criminal Lawyer New Port Richey

Why do you need a Criminal Lawyer?
While a defendant or plaintiff has the right to protect himself in court he can end up losing a case if he does not have the legal knowledge or acumen to fight it. This is especially when it comes to serious crimes like felonies. Such cases can lead to long term prison terms if they are not handled correctly. An innocent person might end up behind bars while the real culprit walks free.

An indictment may include an examination of the severity of the charge that is brought forth in a case such as this. Cases that involve criminal law may also end up piling on the charges or enhancing the existing charge. Needless to say hiring the services of a professional criminal law attorney in New Port Richey is highly recommended during such cases preferably one who is experienced in criminal law. Not only is he equipped with the knowledge you need to protect your rights he can also cut the proceedings short if your allegations are proven to be true.

A professional criminal law attorney in New Port Richey can assist clients from the beginning of the criminal justice process to the very end. A lawyer who is experienced in criminal law may also have any charges dropped if he manages to establish that the evidence that is brought forth against his client is insufficient. For example, an innocent inmate can go free if his attorney proves that the blood, fingerprints or hair found on the murder site was not his. A person who is behind bars will not have the resources he needs to employ a forensics team to gather the evidence he needs.

A professional criminal law attorney in New Port Richey can also help convince a court to drop charges if it is established that the procedure that was used to convict his client is improper to begin with. In other words, a police officer or detective must have a “probable cause” for making the arrest. The charges against an individual can be dropped before the trail even begins if his lawyer proves that the officer might not have had probable cause to investigate a crime scene or make the arrest.

It doesn’t matter if you need to accuse someone of a criminal case or defend yourself in court. It’s best that you hire an experienced professional criminal law attorney in New Port Richey to fight your case for you.

Do you need a Slip and Fall Attorney?

You might have heard of accident attorneys. A slip and fall attorney works in a very similar manner. . A slip or fall attorney is one who handles personal injury cases as well. In such a case an individual who slips and falls on someone else’s property can hold the latter liable for his injuries by taking the matter to court.

Looking for a Slip and Fall Attorney in New Port Richey?

Who is Responsible for the Slip up?
Millions of people are injured from such accidents especially if they happen to lose their balance above a flight of stairs or on a slippery floor. The owner of the property might be responsible for causing the accident or not at all depending on the circumstances on which the accidents in question occur. For example the owner of the property cannot be held responsible if the slip was something that an individual should expect to find and avoid. A cautionary sign for a wet floor is a Slip and Fall Attorney New Port Richeygood example.
However, property owners are expected to see to the upkeep of their properties. Cases may focus on whether the owner conducted the upkeep vigilantly enough to ensure that no slip or trip happens on his property. Here are other ways in which a slip and fall attorney in New Port Richey can determine whether an injured individual has a sound case -

Determine Liability
A slip and fall attorney in New Port Richey will need to determine whether the following are true before he decides whether his client was actually injured because of a property owner’s irresponsibility –

• An employee or owner of the property must have known about the dangerous area since a “reasonable person” would have found the danger and repaired or removed it.
The third option is the most common in slip and fall cases such as these. However, the term “reasonable” is also open to a lot of debate in court. The law, in a bid to ensure whether a property owner is reasonable, focuses on whether he makes a conscious effort to take the steps that would make his property safe for his employees. A slip and fall attorney in New Port Richey will usually ask the following questions to determine the owner’s liability.
• Was the dangerous spot there long enough for the owner to have known about it?
• Does the employer have a regular procedure to examine and clear the premise?
• Was there a legitimate reason for the dangerous object to be placed where the plaintiff slips on it?
• If there wasn’t would the object have been covered or otherwise made safe?
• Could a simple barrier have been created or a warning issued to keep people away from the dangerous area?
