Florida Residents, Look No Further For A Reputable Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Florida Residents, Look No Further For A Reputable Motorcycle Accident AttorneyA lot of people enjoy riding motorcycles, especially here in Florida.

The Dangers Of Getting Distracted While Driving

The Dangers Of Getting Distracted While DrivingTime and time again, people have been told not to do various things that take their attention away from the road. Yet, many drivers still partake in activities that do just that. The actions have been taking place for years, so it is not like this is a new dilemma. For instance, in the past, it was not uncommon to see drivers reading newspapers while stuck in traffic. Of course, there was the problem of eating and operating a vehicle too, which is still an issue today.

With so many drive-thru restaurants along routes, it is easy for folks to swing in and snag a quick bite to eat. After all, time is money, and there never seems to be enough of either in the modern world. Still, this act should be avoided whenever possible as it can be very dangerous. It is tough to keep the car under control with a drink in one hand, a burger in the other, and a knee controlling the steering wheel. In other words, distracted driving takes place in many forms.

The World Is Not Always Kind To Car Crash Victims

The World Is Not Always Kind To Car Crash Victims People rely on their cars for all sorts of things. They use them to travel to vacation destinations, get kiddos back and forth to school, and commute to and from work.

A Closer Look At Distracted Driving

A Closer Look At Distracted DrivingFlorida drivers have a tremendous amount to pay attention to while on our roads. With the third highest population in the country and millions of visitors every year, Florida roads are among the busiest in the nation. As such, they can also be among the most dangerous. Drivers who are injured in an accident may need help making a full recovery, and if your injuries were caused by the reckless or negligent actions of someone else it is important to get compensation for your injuries. And one of the biggest causes of accidents today? Distracted drivers.

Amusement Parks And Your Injury Rights

Amusement Parks And Your Injury RightsFlorida is famous for plenty of things, but being home to some of the most well known amusement parks and resort destinations in the world is probably one of its biggest claims to fame. And there’s no real off season – parks here run almost year round, making it easy for millions of visitors to have fun and create great memories.

But sometimes, those memories may not be as great as they should be. While Florida amusement parks are held to very high standards of safety, accidents do still sometimes happen – and when they do it’s important to have a clear idea as to what your rights are and what steps out need to take to make a full recovery.

Unforeseen Accidents

Amusement parks undergo daily inspections and evaluations, but sometimes the unthinkable can still happen.

It led to two passengers falling 34 feet, and seven additional ones being transported to the hospital.

In this instance, an accident could have potentially been avoided. The... ...read full post

New Recall Focuses On Brake Defects

New Recall Focuses On Brake DefectsIt seems like the last several years have been filled with nothing other than recalls in the auto world. From airbags to ignition switches, each of these defects can lead to serious issues for those who are driving the vehicle at the time.

And now, a new recall is being issued that motorists must pay attention to in order to keep themselves safe and protected while on the roads.

The New Recall 


This particular recall was issued by Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing. It involves the ADVICS brake master cylinders in 2018 to 2019 Toyota Tacomas. It has been found that improper machining could have led to damage to the internal seals of the brake master cylinders. This means that the overall braking performance of the vehicle could be affected, making it more dangerous for drivers to operate these particular vehicles.

During the recall, it is likely that the cylinders will be totally replaced on the Tacoma to ensure total safety, though in some instances a repair may occur. Motorists who own these vehicles will likely start to receive notices very soon, and 44,121

A Social Security Lawyer For When The Process Seems Too Much To BearSocial Security Disability is a Federal program that pays a disabled person benefits when they can no longer work.

If the individual qualifies, he or she and members of their family may be able to receive payments from the government to pay for expenses. Candidates must have mental or physical disorders that prevent them from working. Also, when considering one's claim, officials look at both a person's legal and medical issues.

Be Aware Of This Tie-Rod Separation IssuevThere are plenty of vehicles driving around on neighborhood streets, interstates, and farm roads in Florida. Motorcycles, cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs can be seen on our highways. Not to mention, there are also tractor-trailers, construction vehicles, bicyclists, and even pedestrians that one must look out for when traveling from place to place.
