Terms and Conditions
Content Is Information Only, Not Advice
The Sites were created by the Firm so that you could learn more about the legal services that we offer and other information related to the law and concerning various legal issues. This information is provided for educational and informational purposes only. None of the information at the Sites does not constitute, nor is it substitute for legal advice from a qualified attorney. In addition, the information does not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Firm, its attorneys, staff, or personnel, or the Firm’s clients. You should not and are not authorized to rely on the Sites as a source of legal advice. The Sites contain general information from a variety of sources and might not reflect current legal developments, verdicts or settlements. We do not undertake to update material in the Sites to reflect subsequent legal or other developments.
No Legal Services or Attorney Client Relationship or Obligation Arises from Use of the Site
Your use of the Sites does not create any attorney-client relationship between you and the Firm. The Sites contain electronic contact information for many of the Firm’s attorneys. The mere act of contacting a Firm attorney electronically, however, DOES NOT create an attorney-client relationship. If you wish to become a client of the Firm, you must contact an appropriate Firm attorney and negotiate a retention. The Sites are not an invitation to form an attorney-client relationship.
Additionally, until you have an attorney-client relationship with the Firm, we are not obligated to maintain as confidential any information you send or disclose to us. Therefore, under no circumstances should you send confidential information to the Firm unless you have been authorized to so by an attorney of the Firm following the documentation of an attorney-client relationship with the Firm.

The content provided on this site, such as documents, text, graphics, images, videos, or other materials, are for informational purposes only. The information is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always consult a physician for diagnosis and treatment of any medical condition or for any questions you may have regarding a health concern.

The Firm Is Not Responsible for Content
The Firm may periodically change, remove, or add the material in the Sites without notice. This material may contain technical or typographical errors. The Firm does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or suitability of the material contained on the Sites, particularly as it relates to any particular situation. The Firm assumes no liability or responsibility for any errors or omissions in the contents of the Sites. Your use of the Sites is at your own risk. Under no circumstances shall the Firm or any other party involved in the creation, production, or delivery of the Sites be liable to you or any other person for any indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages of any kind arising from your access to, or use of, the Sites. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE FIRM BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RELATING TO THIS MATERIAL, FOR ANY USE OF THE SITES, FOR ANY MATERIAL CONTAINED ON THE SITES, FOR ANY WEBSITE LINKED TO THE SITES, OR ANY MATERIAL THAT APPEARS ON ANY WEBSITE LINKED TO THE WEB SITES.
State Laws Vary
The Firm’s lawyers are licensed to practice law within the states of Florida and Georgia, but the Firm has relationships with lawyers throughout the United States. The Firm may refer prospective clients to other law firms located throughout the country who have form relationships with the Firm, and are experienced in handling such cases. The Firm may also undertake legal representation in certain cases, and will affiliate with other legal counsel located throughout the country to provide legal representation.
The laws of each jurisdiction are different. The Website contains general information that applies only in some circumstances or only in some states. The Website also contains information about verdicts or settlements in past cases. You cannot assume that the same rules apply, or that the same result would occur, in your state, in any particular state, or in any particular situation.
Statutes of Limitations are especially important. Every jurisdiction has laws called the “statute of limitations,” which set a deadline to file a lawsuit. Therefore, if a lawsuit is filed too late, it may be thrown out, regardless of the defendant’s fault or the severity of the injuries. Some states have a two-year period for negligence injury claims; the time period in other jurisdictions may be longer or shorter. Insurance policies, particularly homeowners’ insurance, may require that suit be filed within one year of a loss. Some states allow claims against government agencies, but require a written notice very soon after the accident, perhaps within three months. Because investigation and research is needed to identify all possible defendants and theories of recovery, if you have an accident or injury, you should consult a lawyer as soon as possible.
Legal and Ethical Requirements
The Firm has attempted to comply with all applicable legal and ethical requirements in compiling this Website. We welcome comments about our compliance with the applicable rules. Upon learning of any new or different requirements the Firm will update the Website, as warranted. To the extent that the professional responsibility rules of any jurisdiction require us to designate a principal office or an attorney responsible for this Website, the Firm designates the following: Farah & Farah, P.A. 10 West Adams St, Jacksonville, Florida 32202, USA.
State Advertising Disclosures
Because some material on this Website constitutes lawyer advertising, and this Website may be viewed from anywhere in the United States, particular disclosures are required by the rules of some states. The Firm adopts and makes the following disclosures:
Florida: The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. Before you decide, ask us to send you free written information about our qualifications and experience.
Georgia: Contingent attorneys’ fees refers only to those fees charged by attorneys for their legal services. Such fees are not permitted in all types of cases. Court costs and other additional expenses of legal action usually must be paid by the client. “No fee unless you win or collect” refers only to fees charged by the attorney. Court costs and other additional expenses of legal action usually must be paid by the client. Contingent fees are not permitted in all types of cases.
