Your Vehicle May Not Be Quite As Safe As You Think

Your Vehicle May Not Be Quite As Safe As You ThinkConsumers go out of their way to find cars, trucks, and SUVs that keep themselves and loved ones safe. They research, research, and research some more until they finally find the perfect vehicle, or at least, so they think. From time to time, autos that have defective parts or software make it to the open market. Thus, purchasers are thrust into harm's way, regardless of how much research they complete.

Driving around on Florida's streets and highways is dangerous enough without having to worry about your own car causing an issue. However, the threat is real as anyone can see from the recalls that have taken place over the last decade or so, and they don't look to be going away any time soon. For instance, readers are likely to remember hearing about the Takata airbag or GM ignition switch recalls in the news. They both led to a substantial amount of injuries and deaths.

When cars make into the hands of consumers, they are supposed to be safe and secure. Still, sometimes, a bad unit slips through the cracks. Loss... ...read full post

The World Is Still Facing The Aftermath Of The Takata Airbag Recalls TodayEvery person reading this blog has likely heard a little bit about the Takata inflator issue.

When they do so, an accident can occur in the blink of an eye. Participants are regularly left with serious injuries that require a substantial amount of time to recover from. Wounds often include...

Some Useful Boating Accident Data

Some Useful Boating Accident DataPeople can become injured in plenty of different ways. They can sustain damages via car, motorcycle, or truck accidents.

However, there is one place where persons can get injured, which people often let slip their mind. It is possible for men, women, and children to receive wounds through boating accidents.

Many people believe that boating accidents don't happen all that regularly, but yet, they do, and the outcome is not always pleasant.

According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, there were 59 fatalities in the Sunshine State in 2016. That number increased to 67 in 2017. These figures for this single place are enough to show that dangers exist out on... ...read full post

Be Aware Of This Tie-Rod Separation Issue

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. If motorists get distracted, drowsy, or are driving around impaired, disaster can strike in a moment's notice.



People can be involved in many different kinds of accidents like roll-overs, rear-end or head-on collisions, T-bones, and more. These incidents affect more than just the impaired, negligent, or careless driver. Other people that were not at-fault can sustain severe injuries, which can even be fatal. Not only does the individual that caused the event have to live with what he or she did, but they often find themselves in the middle of lawsuits or facing jail time. So, if all motor vehicle operators pay a little more attention, perhaps, we can make our roads safer. 



However, on some occasions, accidents are caused by something else, defective parts. Manufacturers are responsible for the products... ...read full post

A Social Security Lawyer For When The Process Seems Too Much To Bear

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. The applicant must meet certain medical criteria and have worked for a particular amount of time while paying Social Security taxes to qualify. 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.

Many Folks View The Application Process As A Big Pain

Applying for Social Security Disability benefits can be both lengthy and challenging. If the individual forgets to dot an I here or cross a T there, they will more than likely be denied. Another common reason for receiving a denial letter is the person having a lack of medical evidence, or the medical issue is not expected to last very long. So, be sure to head to the doctor or therapist and get your... ...read full post
