Experienced legal representation for personal injury cases

Imagine suffering injuries in an accident. This accident could have occurred because you were in a motor vehicle that was struck by another vehicle. This accident could have occurred because you were walking down the aisle at your local grocery store. Or, this accident could have occurred as a result of someone else's blatant negligence. Any or these circumstances would warrant the victim considering his or her legal options. And when the victim considers those legal options, they are best considered with the help of an attorney.

Pedestrian accident numbers aren't flattering

Most people would like to think that we are always improving, both as individuals and as a collective society. Business practices should improve; our skills should improve; and road safety should improve. These are just a few examples, but you get the idea. However, in relation to that last point -- road safety -- improvement isn't always what we get as the years pass by.

Cars dart out of the way as wrong-way driver causes mayhem

A woman who was under the influence of alcohol drove down the wrong lanes of State Road 826 before finally coming to a stop near the ramp for Interstate 395. Amazingly, the woman never crashed into other vehicles as she traveled eastbound in the westbound lanes. However, four vehicles did crash in an effort to avoid the wrong-way driver. One person suffered injuries and had to be taken to a hospital, but thankfully no one was seriously injured in the bizarre incident.

Dealing with insurance after a car accident

One of the worst parts of any car accident is dealing with your insurance company. Car insurance companies, as with most insurance companies in general, are stingy and will do everything in their power to mitigate their liability. But there are necessary steps you need to take as a car accident victim after the wreck -- and one of those things is dealing with your insurer.

Truck accident leaves 1 dead in Florida

A tragic car crash in Parrish, Florida claimed the life of a 27-year-old woman. The wreck occurred as the woman was driving southbound, and a tractor trailer was traveling west bound. They approached an intersection that had blinking lights. The woman was faced with a flashing red light, while the driver of the truck was faced with a flashing yellow light.

Injuries from sidewalk slip and falls can be terrible

More than a month ago, we wrote a post that talked about premises liability. Today, we want to get a bit more specific and talk about sidewalk accidents. A story out of Santa Monica has caught our eye, as it exemplifies the dangers of sidewalk accidents and the role that cities and municipalities can play in them.

Distracted driving remains a serious problem in Florida

An interesting report was released recently by EverQuote, an online insurance firm, about distracted driving. According to EverQuote, they used the EverDrive motion sensing app to calculate how many people took out their phone while driving in the last 30 days. The app said that 92 percent of drivers had done so. What's worse is that Florida ranked second-worst in the country in these terms, only ahead of Louisiana.

10 vehicles in pile-up crash leave 4 seriously injured

An accident on Interstate 95 in Broward County locked up traffic and left four people needing emergency help as they were transported to nearby trauma centers. The accident was a massive pile-up crash that involved 10 vehicles. The wreck occurred around 8 a.m. and the police are investigating the pile-up. Three lanes on the interstate had to be shut down to allow crews to address the crash.

Exploring the legal area of premises liability

A couple of months ago, we wrote a post about a slip and fall where a woman suffered serious injuries. Slip and falls are harmful incidents that are common in the realm of personal injury and premises liability law. However, today we want to focus on some of the other areas of premises liability that can cause people to needlessly suffer.
