Terms of Use

If you use this website, you are deemed to have read, understood, and agreed to these Terms of Use. If you do not accept the Terms of Use, you should stop reading or otherwise using the website or any materials obtained from it.  These Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, without regard to any choice of law principles. Disputes arising hereunder shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of a competent Pinellas County, Florida court.

Content Is Information Only, Not Advice

Thank you for visiting the website of the Law Office of Travis J. McConnell, PLLC. The information contained on this website is provided for educational and informational purposes only. Nothing contained on this site is or should be construed as legal advice. The website is not an offer to perform services on any matter. This website contains general information from a variety of sources and might not reflect current legal developments.

The law is different in each and every jurisdiction.  You should not rely on a website instead only on the opinion of an attorney you have retained, who has a professional duty to advise you after being fully informed of all the pertinent facts, and who is licensed in the applicable state, and is familiar with the applicable law. Online readers should seek professional counsel about their legal rights and remedies. You should not act or refrain from acting on the basis of any information found on this website.

We expressly disclaim all liability with respect to actions taken or not taken based upon the contents of this website. The content and features on this site do not create, and are not intended to create, an attorney-client relationship, and shall not be construed as legal advice. We use written contracts to establish all attorney-client relationships.

We assume no liability or responsibility for any errors or omissions in the contents of this web site. Your use of this website is at your own risk. Under no circumstances shall we or any other party involved in the creation, production or delivery of this website 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, this website.

Confidentiality is Not Guaranteed

Any information sent via to us through email or this website is not secure and is done on a non-confidential basis. We respect your privacy and will make reasonable efforts to keep information private, but because of the nature of Internet communications and the absence of an attorney/client relationship, we cannot promise or guarantee confidentiality.

Third-party Websites

This website may contain links to third party websites for the convenience of our users. We do not endorse any of these third party sites and do not imply any association between our office or our attorneys and those sites. We do not control these third party websites and cannot represent that their policies and practices will be consistent with these Terms of Use. If you use links to access and use such websites, you do so at your own risk.

State Laws Vary

The laws of each State are different. This website contains information about general or common rules that apply in some states. This 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 or any particular state.

The Statute of Limitations is critically important. This law imposes a deadline to file a lawsuit. If you miss this deadline you lose your rights forever.  Some states have a two-year period for negligence injury claims (such as Indiana); in other states the limit may be longer (four-year period in Florida) 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 or less after the accident or loss.

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. As such we make the following disclosures:

  • Alabama:No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
  • Colorado:Colorado does not certify attorneys as specialists in any field.
  • 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.
  • Iowa:The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. This disclosure is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Iowa. NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC: Memberships and offices in legal fraternities and legal societies, technical and professional licenses, and memberships in scientific, technical and professional associations and societies of law or field of practice do not mean that a lawyer is a specialist or expert in a field of law, nor do they mean that such a lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer. All potential clients are urged to make their own independent investigation and evaluation of any lawyer being considered. This notice is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Iowa.
  • Kentucky and Oregon:THIS IS AN ADVERTISEMENT
  • Mississippi:The Mississippi Supreme Court advises that a decision on legal services is important and should not be based solely on advertisements.
