As the pace of technology innovation accelerates, we should all be mindful of the law of unintended consequences. Take the Internet for example. It’s doubtful that the World Wide Web developers in the 1990s anticipated the identity theft problems of the 21st century. Nor did cell phone manufacturers of that era take precautions to prevent traffic accidents caused by texting drivers.

The same principle is likely to be applied to one of the most revolutionary advances in technology: the introduction of autonomous or “self-driving” vehicles guided by artificial intelligence (AI).

There is no question that self-driving vehicles can make life easier for milli...

 AALM: When did you first know you wanted to become an attorney? What drew you to this career?

Blumberg: I always knew I wanted to become an attorney. I was fortunate enough to grow up surrounded by attorneys as my father is an attorney and my mother is a paralegal.

AALM: Who are some of your legal heroes? Why?

Blumberg: One of my legal heroes is George Wythe. Mr. Wythe became the first law professor in the country when Thomas Jefferson appointed him as chair of law at the College of William and Mary, thus making Mr. Wythe the first law professor in the United States. Mr. Wythe was a true citizen lawyer who believed lawyers should use our position, as law...

When Lawrence Johnson was admitted to the Miami VA hospital for a spinal fusion of his neck in May 2016, the U.S. Marine Corps veteran had trouble swallowing after surgery. 

To feed Johnson as he recovered, doctors ran a thin feeding tube through his nose and down the back of his throat. But they missed the 68-year-old’s stomach, and sent the tube into his right lung instead, according to a lawsuit that Johnson filed Dec. 4 in U.S. District Court against the Miami VA Healthcare System.

Doctors didn’t realize their mistake for two days. By then, Johnson had developed a blood infection and pneumonia as the liquefied food built up between his lung and...

For H.T. Smith, director of the trial advocacy program at the Florida International University College of Law, it's all about gestures and long pauses when he's addressing a jury.

Sedgwick partner Ramon Abadin's trial secret: sit on the edge of your seat while the defense is speaking, ready to jump up, button your jacket and object in a second.

Ed Blumberg, a partner at Deutsch & Blumberg in Miami, saves money by having a paralegal or staffer act as his unpaid jury consultant, taking notes and Googling potential jurors during voir dire.

And Jennifer Altman, a partner at Boise, Schiller & Flexner in Miami, sits in on trials and jury selection of litigators...

NEW PORT RICHEY — A jury awarded more than $13 million to a Pasco man in a negligence lawsuit over a misdiagnosis of pink eye. Arcadio Hernandez, 21, went to the emergency room at Morton Plant North Bay Hospital on July 10, 2010, complaining about pain on or around his eye. He was seen by the nursing staff and a physician's assistant, Bethany Berghoffer, who diagnosed him with a form of conjunctivitis, commonly known as pink eye.
