Other Practice Areas

In 32+ years of practicing as a civil trial attorney Barry Morgan has participated in a wide range of different types of litigation. As a seasoned litigator, Mr. Morgan is available and is called upon by other lawyers and law firms to assist them in the presentation of their cases, particularly when it is anticipated that case is going to be tried before a jury.

Without question, the predominant types of cases in our practice are cases of personal injury and wrongful death. But Mr. Morgan also participates in commercial litigation, employer/employee disputes and in consumer claims.
 
Other areas of practice also include:

Insurance disputes:

An additional practice area in which Mr. Morgan is regularly called upon concerns insurance disputes. While many people do not appreciate this, there is a fundamental conflict of interest that exists between insurance companies and very own insureds in many cases. Oftentimes insured persons naïvely rely upon their insurance company for advice on how an insurance claim should be resolved. We also see cases in which the insurance company simply delays resolution of an insurance claim or outright refuses to pay the insured money which the insured is due under the policy. Insurance law can be complicated and insurance companies may make use of that complication to avoid payment.

Condemnation/imminent domain:

Anyone who has ever owned a home that was in the path of an intended freeway knows what condemnation and imminent domain is. The government has the ability to take property for public use. However, when the government does so, it is required by our state and federal constitutions to provide fair compensation. In Florida, the procedure for assuring fair compensation allows for a trial by jury if the government and the land owner cannot agree. One helpful rule is that the government also pays the citizens legal fees and costs.

If you have property or a business which is threatened with condemnation give us a call and I will be happy to discuss the matter in a free consultation.
