Stats That Show Florida Roadways Are Not Always The Safest Place To Be

Stats That Show Florida Roadways Are Not Always The Safest Place To BeThere are a lot of good things that come with living in The Sunshine State. For one, citizens are not too far from the beach in any direction. Hence, it is no problem for them to head out for a day of fun in the sun. Plenty of attractions are usually nearby as well, which means a quick drive will take care of all a person's entertainment needs.

Plus, Florida is a hot spot destination for tourists. The people ensure that residents have loads of job opportunities to choose from and help the state's economy thrive. Of course, just like any other place, there are some issues that Floridians have to deal with too. For instance, each new hurricane season tends to strike fear in folks as it is anybody's guess as to when the next big storm will hit our coastline.

Reasons To Hire An Attorney After A Car Crash Results In Wrongful Death

Reasons To Hire An Attorney After A Car Crash Results In Wrongful DeathMany different types of unfortunate events can lead to wrongful death. One example is workers getting exposed to harmful chemicals or hazardous conditions while on the job. Sometimes, employers knowingly put their agents in harm's way. Then again, on other occasions, they may do so by mistake. In either case, that does not justify a human dying on their watch.

Another issue that can cause loss of life is a manufactured product, which is defective or faulty. For instance, hoverboards were all the rage just a few years back. However, a lot of the devices wound up having battery packs that exploded. In turn, the risk of death increased, whether a person was on the unit at the time or not. After all, if the scooter was inside an individual's house during the event, a fire could have broken out, leaving him or her susceptible to smoke inhalation and flames.

There is also the possibility of wrongful death when guns are improperly handled. These unfortunate accidents can happen to adults and children alike. When one of the weapons is... ...read full post

How Long Does It Take To Settle A Personal Injury Claim?

How Long Does It Take To Settle A Personal Injury Claim?When you’ve been practicing personal injury law as long as we have, you find that people have the same concerns about their case. They worry if the settlement will be enough to cover all their expenses. They are afraid about the financial security of their family into the future. Mostly though, they are worried that the debt collectors will come before they get their settlement and they will lose everything they’ve built. This is a valid concern as insurance companies will do everything they can to drag out the process, hoping to hit the statute of limitations so they don’t have to pay.

Don’t Be Tempted By Quick Settlements

The financial pressure can build, making it very tempting to take a quick settlement from the insurance company. The problem is though, once you accept a settlement offer, you can’t get more money. That means if you settle for $10,000, and your doctor discovers your injuries are worse than they originally thought and now you need a $50,000 surgery, you are on your own to pay that bill. Insurance companies understand... ...read full post

How Bad Is A Slip And Fall Injury?

How Bad Is A Slip And Fall Injury?When people hear the term “slip and fall” they just simply imagine someone slipping on a wet floor, stumbling, and falling to the ground. It doesn’t seem that it sounds that bad right? So why are there slip and fall accident claims? The reality is, most slip and fall accidents are not a big deal and may just leave you a little sore in the morning. However, there are also slip and falls that can cause life-long debilitating injuries.

Severe Slip And Fall Injuries

Some slip and fall injuries can be so severe they can lead to surgery, physical therapy, and even paralysis. Here are some of the worst injuries that can occur from a slip and fall:

Shoulder Injuries: Your shoulder is full of nerves, so a shoulder injury can be extremely painful. This is amplified by how often we use our shoulders to do simple activities like taking food out of the fridge or typing a document for work. Shoulder injuries most often happen when a person can’t catch themselves during a fall. The simple physics of a fall makes people often hit the ground... ...read full post

Everybody Should Be Aware Of This Increased Risk Of Fire Problem

Everybody Should Be Aware Of This Increased Risk Of Fire ProblemMost people, including those right here in Florida, likely imaging malfunctioning airbags when they hear the word recall. Why? Well, the Takata Corporation's exploding canisters have been in the headlines since May of 2013. The topic will be discussed briefly here for those that don't have a clue about the subject.

The original recall came about after a series of deaths and injuries occurred due to metal shards flying through the cab. It included 3.6 million vehicles but has since grown to 41.6 million. However, the NHTSA, short for National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, estimates the figure will increase to around 65 or 75 million by the year's end, and rightfully so. According to Consumer Reports, the faulty inflators are responsible for at least 24 deaths and 300 injuries worldwide.

This is only one issue though, and there are many others that people need to be aware of so that they can keep themselves and their families safe. Therefore, this post is going to focus on another recall that puts drivers and passengers in danger. So, curious persons should read further to learn... ...read full post

Drivers Must Remain On The Lookout For Cyclists And Pedestrians Or Crashes Will Likely Follow

Drivers Must Remain On The Lookout For Cyclists And Pedestrians Or Crashes Will Likely FollowEverybody is looking for ways to save money these days, and who can blame them? Folks seem to be working more hours than ever before, and if they are lucky, they might have a few minutes out of each day to spend with their significant others or children. Owning a vehicle is one thing that can throw a wrench into a Floridian's budget. How? Well, first of all, there is the initial cost of the car, truck, or SUV.

The price of these products continues to climb each year as new safety features, technology, gadgets, and gizmos are added. Plus, owners must purchase a pricey insurance policy too. When a lender is part of the equation, it must be full coverage, which means the cost can skyrocket in a hurry. Of course, nobody can forget about filling up the vehicle's fuel tank either. After all, according to gasprices.aaa.com, as of 8/22/2019, a single gallon of regular unleaded runs $2.39 here.

While not the highest price in the country, topping off the tank is still enough to make a person... ...read full post

Determining Liability In A Car Accident During Extreme Weather

Determining Liability In A Car Accident During Extreme WeatherAs we enter peak hurricane season in Southwest Florida, extreme weather will soon be hitting our roads. During this time, we see an increase in car accidents. Heavy winds and rains make our roads extremely dangerous and reduce visibility. With these conditions, it can be difficult to determine who, if anyone is at fault for a car accident.

Understanding An “Act Of God”

An “act of God” is a term that insurance companies use to describe accidents that are no one’s fault. For example, if heavy winds are blowing and a tree falls onto your car, it’s not really anyone’s fault. The weather caused the damage and since the weather is neither a person nor an entity, it can’t be held accountable. Many accidents during hurricane season are considered an act of God and are rightly classified as such. However, there are also many accidents that happen during extreme weather that are the fault of other drivers.

How Insurance Companies Manipulate Acts Of God

Insurance companies are not in the business of paying claims, they are in the business of making money. So they will do everything... ...read full post
