What Is A Toxic Tort?

What Is A Toxic Tort?There are a lot of different things that can happen to a person while he or she is at work. Work days can be ordinary, with no surprises, and, in worse cases, things can go wrong that may even result in an injury. If it’s a small thing, such as a scratch, scrape, or other minor accident, life goes on and people merely deal with a painful inconvenience. If it’s more serious, however, it can require hospitalization, medical treatment, and, in some of the worst case scenarios, may never be recovered from, such as deafness, blindness, or limb amputation.

When something like this happens to a person and the fault lies with the negligence or carelessness of someone else, this is grounds for a case going to court for financial compensation. That’s a general personal injury case. However, when something happens at the workplace, even if the circumstances are similar, it’s a very special kind of personal injury case, and you’ll get better results with a court case when you seek the guidance of an attorney familiar with work-related injury cases.

Even Drones Can Be Dangerous

Even Drones Can Be DangerousTo some people in Florida, a drone is a strange and vaguely disturbing new piece of technology that feels invasive when they see them flying through the air. To others, the drone is just another convenience of 21st century life that can do everything from make a real estate promotional video for a home feel more glamorous to filming sporting activities in new and innovative ways.

Drones are just a part of our modern life now, and they are going to continue to become more widespread in use. A few years from now, it may not be all that unusual to accept home deliveries of everything from pizza to the latest purchase from Amazon via a drone flying directly to our homes.

However, as with any new technology, drones are still slowly integrating into the fabric of our everyday lives, and that means that there are going to be things to work. One of the things that many people are still wrestling with is the possibility of injury through the actions of a drone operator, and whether a personal injury case is then the right course of action.

Were There Wrongful Deaths At Hollywood Hills?

Were There Wrongful Deaths At Hollywood Hills?One of the things that many people learn when a severe weather event such as a hurricane occurs is that the most dangerous time is not necessarily during the storm itself. While a storm is a capable of ripping off the tops of buildings and even knocking down trees, often it is the chaos after a storm passes when the danger is greater.

For eight seniors at the Rehabilitation Center in Hollywood Hills, this was a tragic discovery that was made when the residents at this care center found their lives endangered not by gale force winds, but heat in their rooms.

A Lack Of Power

The management of the Rehabilitation Center made the decision to not move their residents when news of Hurricane Irma’s approach came. They had confidence in the structural integrity of their building, and were sure that the people in their care would remain high and dry as the storm passed. They were right about their assessment, and even as the hurricane hit the area, the seniors in the care of the Rehabilitation Center staff were well protected against the elements.

Tragically, however, while the... ...read full post

The Big Challenges With Trucking Accidents

The Big Challenges With Trucking AccidentsAccidents happen every day. With a bit of luck, you'll be able to avoid being involved. But if the unthinkable happens and you or someone you love is involved in an accident, you need to be able to take the right steps to lead to your recovery. However, with a trucking accident, it can be more difficult than normal to do so.

Not only is the immediate risk to your safety increased with a trucking accident, but the long-term recovery process and even seeking compensation can be more difficult. It starts on the roads, with large trucks posing a serious safety risk to those who are operating passenger cars. The reason is obvious - a tractor-trailer can weigh tens of thousands of pounds more than a standard vehicle. When that much mass strikes a car, it can lead to devastation. Because of this, trucking-related accidents are some of the most traumatic that can occur on the roads. Potential trucking accident injuries include:

Paralysis
Traumatic Brain Injury
Dismemberment
Comas
Broken Bones
Internal Injuries
Death

These injuries can take months or even years to recover from, and when you're struggling to heal physically you may... ...read full post

What Are Your Rights After A Boating Accident?

What Are Your Rights After A Boating Accident?No matter the time of year, Florida enjoys wonderful weather that is perfect for heading out on the water. But boats do carry some measure of risk with them, and if you're injured in a boating accident it's important to remember that you do still have a number of rights.

Chief among them is that if your injuries were caused as a result of the reckless or negligent actions of another, you may be able to seek financial compensation for your injuries. A personal injury boating accident case could be filed and lead to you receiving significant financial restitution for your injuries - or at least receiving the money you need to get your finances back on track and focus on your physical recovery instead of your financial one.

There are just a few things to understand regarding boating accident cases. Luckily, they're so similar to auto accident personal injury cases that it's fairly straightforward to gain a basic comprehension of the subject.

A Closer Look At Financial Restitution After An Injury

A Closer Look At Financial Restitution After An Injury Humans are fragile. A small accident can sometimes lead to big injuries, and when this occurs it's often difficult to make a total recovery and get your life back on track. Physical healing matters in a big way, obviously, but your financial stability can often be impacted as well.

Auto accidents can create huge obstacles in your life, and finding a lawyer to help with your auto accident case is important.

What Is A Tort?

What Is A Tort?For the average American, talking about the legal process and how things get settled in courts will usually conjure images of judges, fiery lawyers presenting passionate arguments, surprise witness testimonies, a jury watching the events unfold, and terms like verdict, conviction and lawsuit. All of these ideas and images come to Americans largely through the television and films they watch, or the fiction they read.

As a result of courtroom activity being portrayed in this manner for entertainment purposes, a lot of common legal procedure and terminology is often left out. So, despite the fact that it’s actually one of the most common legal activities to take place in court, few people in the general public are familiar with the word “tort.” Today, we’re going to explain what it is.

Two Sides Of The Law

Laws exist to provide a sense of order and structure to society, laying out clear rules for what is permissible and what isn’t. Roughly speaking, laws are divided into two types; criminal and civil. Criminal law is the more serious law, and breaking a criminal law is what results in a conviction from a jury... ...read full post

Take Motorcycle Accidents Seriously

Take Motorcycle Accidents SeriouslyOne of our specialities here at All Injuries Law Firm is motorcycle accidents. We’ve taken the time and effort to acquaint ourselves specifically with the details and nuances of motorcycle accidents because, unfortunately, there can often be very large, consistent differences between car accidents and motorcycle accidents. Motorcycle accidents, statistically speaking, tend to be worse and far more damaging.

Frequency & Vulnerability

It’s no surprise that motorcycles are seen a lot on the roads of Southwest Florida. The sunshine state has great, warm weather all year round, which makes it possible for motorcyclists to enjoy riding their vehicles without having to store them away for the winter season as riders in the northern half of the country must do. However, more motorcycles on the road also means more people at risk of getting into accidents. In addition, warm weather the year round also means a great frequency of storms and wet roads which can affect travel conditions.

This means that, unfortunately, if an accident should occur with a motorcyclist, the chances of an injury being serious are much greater. A motorcycle is, by design, exposed. Cars completely encapsulate passengers in... ...read full post

Dogs Aren’t The Only Aggressive Animal

Dogs Aren’t The Only Aggressive AnimalDogs are one of the most popular pets in the world, and in Southwest Florida, that’s certainly also the case. Many homes have dogs that are taken for walks, played with in parks, and frequently interact with friends, family and strangers. However, dogs are still animals, and animals can sometimes behave unpredictably, or interpret human actions as threats, to which they respond with violence. That’s one of the reasons why we have personal injury attorneys that specialize in dog bites, but dogs aren’t the only animal that can sometimes do real harm. America’s other perennial favorite, the cat, is also a viable—though far less common—cause of animal attacks.

A Careful Predator

The cat is quickly growing as a popular pet choice for Americans because it is “low maintenance” in the sense that cats don’t need to be taken for walks, or even let out of a house to deal with their waste. They can also be kept in smaller spaces like apartments, due to not requiring a lot of exercise, space, or making much noise. However, like dogs, cats are predators, and their entire evolutionary chain has... ...read full post

Even A Pleasure Cruise Should Be Prepared For

Even A Pleasure Cruise Should Be PreparedWith warm, sunny weather and tropical waters all around the majority of the state, it’s no surprise that one of the major pastimes for both Florida residents and visitors is boating. There’s nothing quite like being on a boat and taking in the sights on the ocean. Unfortunately, the very popularity of boating in Florida also means that the state has a much higher percentage of people on the ocean, in watercraft, than the vast majority of other states in the USA. This results in a higher likelihood of a boating accident, either through human error when operating the boat, or through a collision with another boater. We’re prepared to help Florida residents to deal with the legal aspects of a boating accident personal injury case. But do you know what to do and how to prepare for a boating accident?

There’s No Such Thing As Too Prepared

People who are going out for a cruise in a water for just a short trip often think this means not having to do much other than show up for a boat ride. While it’s true that passengers... ...read full post

Natural Disasters Make Lawsuits Challenging

Natural Disasters Make Lawsuits ChallengingRegardless of whether you believe in God’s work, climate change, or simple random, bad luck for Florida, the southwest part of the state had the misfortune of being struck by one of the larger, more serious hurricanes in recent memory. Even now, some areas are still struggling with full recovery and a complete return to a normal life. And for some residents, tragically, the hurricane has caused so much damage that the results are there is no home to go to, or, in some cases, an actual loss of life.

In the great majority of these cases, the best that people can hope for is that they have had the foresight to get some kind of insurance coverage that will protect them and their property from this kind of outlier, meteorological activity. For example, anyone that had the opportunity to get flood insurance in their area, ultimately chose not to, and then had their home flooded out is now probably experiencing an enormous amount of regret, in addition to the trauma of seeing a home damaged. That, however, was a choice with consequences.

There are other times when something... ...read full post

Gas Accidents Are No Laughing Matter

Gas Accidents Are No Laughing MatterIn April of 2016, in the Pennsylvania township of Salem, a 30 inch natural gas transmission exploded. Because this was gas, the explosion immediately resulted in a conflagration of the gas that was in the pipeline and that fire spread, eventually sending fireballs flying through the area.

One home that was, unfortunately, near the explosion, was burned to the ground, a newlywed living in the house barely escaped with his life, and at the cost of severe burns. It was a sobering reminder to everyone that natural gas, while extremely useful in a number of different ways, is still a volatile substance. And when it’s not handled correctly, or its power is not respected, it can result in massive damage that may injure people or even take lives.

Of course, the usefulness of natural gas means that it is often piped into many places, including homes for cooking or commercial buildings for heating. Under these circumstances, everything is fine, and there is little to no worry of harm. Once people start getting careless, however, this is when the safety of everyone in a building—or a general area—is put... ...read full post

There’s A New King In Car Accident Causes

There’s A New King In Car Accident CausesFor decades traffic accident have been just another part of life that some of us have to face as drivers. It wasn’t always that way, of course. The very first traffic accident fatality took place in 1896, and at that time, the coroner overseeing the accident wrote, “This must never happen again,” naively believing this would be an isolated incident.

Unfortunately, millions of deaths later, that coroner has been proven spectacularly wrong. Perhaps even more worrying, despite all the advances in road construction, car construction, car safety, and driver education, car accidents within the United State are still on the rise. In fact, by the conclusion of 2016, that year had proven to have a higher traffic accident rate nationwide than in the previous nine years. So how, with all of these improvements in knowledge, experience, technology and manufacturing can traffic accidents still be on the increase?

The answer is human error, and, at least in Florida, there’s not much that even the police can do about it.
