Florida Ranks Second For The Least Affordable States For Auto Insurance

Florida Ranks Second For The Least Affordable States For Auto InsuranceA new study published by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) found that Florida has the least affordable auto insurance next to Louisiana. The study assessed all 50 states in the US and used an affordability index to determine the rankings. The index was based on a comparison of the average cost of auto insurance and median household income. These costs are the result of a variety of factors and the impact is statewide.

Can A Boat Owner Be Liable For My Injuries After An Accident?

Can A Boat Owner Be Liable For My Injuries After An Accident?One of the best things about living in Florida is the access to the beach. Many of us Floridians love to set sail and get out on the water for fishing, watersports, or just to relax. As fun as boating can be, there are risks of injury. Most of them are a result of being out on the open water. However, sometimes when an injury occurs, it is actually the fault of another person. In these cases, the boat owner may be liable for your injuries.

Understanding Negligence In Boating Accidents

Negligence is a legal term used for when you are hurt as the result of intentional or unintentional actions of another person. When someone is negligent it means that they didn’t act within reasonable care to prevent injuries. Being hurt on a boat doesn’t necessarily mean that anyone caused your injuries through negligence. However, there are times when someone could be negligent for your boating injuries.

The Four Most Common Boating Accidents

To understand how negligence works in these cases, we have to understand the most common types of boating accidents. These accidents typically... ...read full post

What You Need To Do After A Dog Bite Accident

What You Need To Do After A Dog Bite AccidentDogs may have been man’s best friend for thousands of years, but that doesn’t mean that dogs are always predictable.

In southwest Florida, dog bite accidents occur to individuals of all ages, and they can happen quickly. When a dog bite accident occurs, it pays to know just what to do next to ensure you’re able to receive compensation for your injuries.

The Steps Of A Dog Bite Accident

Symptoms To Look Out For When You May Have Suffered A TBI

Symptoms To Look Out For When You May Have Suffered A TBITraumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, aren’t always obvious at first. Even if they are, not all symptoms come on quickly and may develop in the weeks to months after your accident has occurred. Traumatic brain injuries are one common type of injury suffered in both car accidents and slip and falls, and may even be experienced during a boating accident or accident at work as well.

Mild, Moderate, and Severe

Traumatic brain injuries are typically put into one of three categories – mild, moderate, and severe. A mild traumatic brain injury doesn’t require one to bump or hit their head at all and is often caused by the brain being jostled and bumped by the skull after experiencing an extreme force. Moderate and severe traumatic brain injuries typically involve a loss of consciousness and depending on the part of the brain affected, what may seem like a “run of the mill” concussion during a child’s sports match could result in a severe brain injury.

The severity of a traumatic brain injury cannot be accurately assessed until seeking the assistance... ...read full post

Steps To Follow For A Successful Slip And Fall Case

Steps To Follow For A Successful Slip And Fall CaseThe steps taken immediately after suffering a slip and fall case will serve as the building blocks of your case. For this reason, it’s important to know what to do if you plan to seek compensation for the injuries you’ve suffered. Slip and fall cases can lead to painful, difficult, and sometimes life-altering injuries, and when caused by a property owner’s negligence, could lead to a settlement for the injured party. The steps to follow for a successful slip and fall case are:

• Seek medical assistance – Your number one priority should be your health, or the health of a loved one, after suffering a slip and fall. Even if one doesn’t believe they’re injured, soft tissue injuries, in particular, can be invisible immediately following a slip and fall accident. Without seeking immediate medical attention, any injuries suffered may not be considered when seeking compensation later on.

• Report your accident – As soon as possible, your slip and fall accident should be reported to the property or landowner responsible for the property your accident was on. The details... ...read full post
