Miami Lawyer Spencer Aronfeld lectures at the Florida’s Everest Institute

Written by Spencer Aronfeld on . Posted in Personal Injury News and Safety Resources

On March 17, 2010 I was invited to speak at The Everest Institute in Miami, to teach medical students. The course is designed to give students a perspective on how to avoid being lured into a medical malpractice case by doctors or those pretending to be doctors.

Students are often surprised to learn that many physicians in Florida do not carry malpractice insurance. I showed them how to easily check on the validity of doctor’s licenses as well as disciplinary proceedings.

CHINESE DRYWALL TRIAL AGAINST KNOPF STARTS MONDAY!!!

Written by Spencer Aronfeld on . Posted in Defective Products

New Orleans Federal Judge Eldon E. Fallon is expected to issue a detailed ruling shortly detailing the scope of remediation he thinks is necessary.

However, during the trial, two key points were brought to everyone’s attention which presents a problem for Lennar. That is that the damages to insulated electrical wiring and removal of residual drywalls.

Lennar started remediating homes last year. They stated that it knew what and how the homes needed to be fixed. Initially, However, recent findings conclude that its not that simple. Some of our clients are complaining that the smell and other problems of “fixed” houses has returned.

During the first trial that Lennar’s first repair protocol was not working and they have changed it.

Though the change to the remediation process has been made for the future, but what about the early homes where the remaining wiring was left behind?

All eyes will be on the trial against Knopf that starts on Monday, when there will be real evidence introduced to the judge. It is a bench trial, meaning no jury will be sworn in. The first jury trial will be in May or June.  We await the rulings.
