Luckily, you do have rights under Florida law and learning more about them is well worth doing.

What You Need To Know About A Personal Injury Case Going To Trial

What You Need To Know About A Personal Injury Case Going To TrialWhen you’re hurt in an accident, it’s not always easy to make a full recovery. This may not be entirely due to your physical health, either – often, the financial damage is just as serious as the physical. Because of this, filing a personal injury lawsuit is often required for those who are seeking compensation.

Under Florida law, those who are hurt by the reckless or negligent actions of someone else will have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit to get what they’re owed. While many may decide to try to simply file an insurance claim, this isn’t always effective and many insurance companies will fight to avoid paying out a dollar more than they need to.

One of the biggest questions from those who are hurt is whether or not their case will end up having to go to trial. There’s no way to know for sure, but there are several factors to keep in mind here.

• When you’re trying to pursue compensation on your own, the odds are against you from the beginning. The reason comes... ...read full post

What To Do After A Slip And Fall Injury

What To Do After A Slip And Fall InjuryOf all the various injuries that you can suffer, some of the most frustrating are property related injuries like slip and fall accidents. This is because you’ll often struggle more to prove fault and get compensation than in a case involving auto accidents. While the laws are similar, proving fault and getting what you’re owed will require all of the skills and guidance of a professional slip and fall lawyer.

Knowing just what to do and what to expect after a slip and fall accident is important as well, and can have a big impact on how your case ends up progressing and ending.

The Big Challenge Of Slip And Fall Cases

The biggest challenge with slip and fall cases comes from proving recklessness and negligence in the case. Under Florida law, those seeking compensation for their injuries must be able to show that the other side acted in a reckless or negligent manner and that those actions were the cause of the accident – and the injuries sustained therein.

In an auto accident, factors like drunk driving or texting while driving are... ...read full post

What Happens When A Car's Brakes Fail?

What Happens When A Car's Brakes Fail?There are numerous ways in which automobile accidents can occur. For example, an individual could be playing on his or her phone, not paying attention to the roadway, only to swerve into another lane side-swiping another vehicle. Drivers also partake in other distracting acts such as eating, applying makeup, or even reading while behind the wheel. These activities might lead to the running of stop signs or red lights. As such, these operators might find themselves mixed up in a T-bone or rear-end collision.

Then again, a driver and passengers could be playing around. Thus, keeping the motorist's attention off the road. In turn, they could slam into a parked car or a stationary object. However, sometimes, persons inside the vehicle are not to blame for the incident at all. Instead, a defective or malfunctioning part causes the crash. So, why should an individual have to be responsible for paying medical and other expenses associated with the event?

The short answer is, they shouldn't. Rather, when a manufacturer is at fault for injuries sustained in a collision, the individual needs to... ...read full post

Uber Eats Accident Highlights Dangers Of Distracted Driving

Uber Eats Accident Highlights Dangers Of Distracted Driving It’s no big secret that Americans are addicted to their phones. After all, just take a quick glance around any public place and you’ll likely see dozens who are staring at their screens. While there’s nothing really wrong with that on its own, it can become a problem when drivers begin to look away from the road and at their screens. And a recent accident involving an Uber Eats driver raises more concerns about technology and how it impacts our safety on the road.

A Growing Problem

First, it’s worth understanding the basics of distracted driving itself. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 3,100 people are killed each year on average due to distracted driving.

Distracted driving can mean anything:

• Texting while driving
• Using social media while driving
• Making a phone call while driving
• Changing radio stations
• Eating while driving
• And more

Of course, it’s primarily thought of as a cell-phone specific issue due to the fact that phones are the... ...read full post
