Have You Been Injured In A Bicycle Accident?

Most bicycle accidents in Florida are minor in nature, but some result in serious injuries for the cyclist. More than 500,000 people in the US are treated in emergency departments – and more than 700 fatalities are reported – as a result of bicycle-related injuries each year, with children ages 5 to 14 being most at risk for death and injury from these accidents. Besides the common minor scrapes and bruising resulting from common spills, more serious problems from bicycle accidents – many related to collisions with motor vehicles – may include fractured or broken bones; internal injuries and bleeding;… Read More →

I’ve Only Had A Couple Of Drinks, No Problem Driving. Wrong!

In legal terms, a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or more is considered the qualifier for being charged with drunk driving, but many other physiological factors come into play regarding the effects of alcohol in the bloodstream. A study conducted at the University of California San Diego reported that driving with much smaller levels of alcohol in the blood could not only increase the risk of vehicular accidents, but also affect their severity. The study revealed that people who are driving with a blood alcohol level as little as 0.01% in their system face a higher risk of being involved… Read More →

Have You Suffered A Collision With A Truck?

Cars usually get the worst end of the bargain when involved in a crash with a truck. A loaded large truck takes up to 20-50% more road space to stop when compared to cars, and this percentage is even higher on wet or slippery roads. And if the brakes of the truck are poorly maintained, things get even worse. Available statistics show that trucks, 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers and similar large vehicles cause auto accidents resulting in a very large number of wrongful deaths and severe injury cases. While the bigger vehicle offers more protection to its driver, an automobile driver has… Read More →

Have Any Of The Products You Use Been Recalled?

Size And Experience Do Matter When It Comes To Legal Representation

When accidents happen as a result of someone’s negligent behavior, legal assistance may be required to obtain proper and adequate redress.

What Factors Determine The Damages Awarded In Personal Injury Cases?

When someone has suffered personal injuries as a result of the negligence of others, the amount of compensation awarded is largely determined by the nature and extent of the injuries suffered.

Regardless of the actual extent of the injuries, the amount of pain or physical discomfort that the injured party experiences is the most compelling factor in determining the amount of damages to be awarded. It’s important to note that similar types of injuries do… Read More →

South Florida Roads Can Be Dangerous For Motorcycle Riders

Motorcycles can be a lot of fun. Not only do they offer a freeing and exhilarating experience on the South Florida roads, they are also much easier to maintain than the larger cars or trucks, and also provide great gas mileage. However, since motorcycles do not have many of the safety features inherent to cars and trucks – such as seat belts and air bags – accidents are much more dangerous and can result in far more serious, long-lasting consequences for motorcycle riders. Around 90,000 motorcyclists get injured yearly in the United States, and motorcycle drivers are 35 times more likely… Read More →
