Should You Automatically Be Considered At Fault In A One-Car Accident?

Traffic accidents in South Florida are not always the result of vehicles crashing into each other. Single-car crashes are more common than people realize, and the fault may not always rest with the driver. The accident may have resulted from circumstances beyond the driver’s control, such as hazardous road conditions or defective or malfunctioning equipment within the vehicle being driven. If you have been involved in a one-car accident, and believe there are extenuating circumstances that may have led or contributed to the crash through no fault of your own, you will need an experienced and aggressive lawyer to properly explore all the possible causes and ensure that you’re not wrongfully held responsible. Contributing causes to single-vehicle accidents may include negligence by another driver causing the accident victim to lose control of the vehicle, defective tires, unexpected road hazards, slippery surfaces, gas or oil spills, and poor signs or road design. At the Fenstersheib Law Group, P.A., we have successfully defended such cases in the past – it is our job to prove extenuating circumstances and fight for your exoneration and proper compensation.

Have You Been Injured In A Boating Accident?

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 in accidents resulting in injuries much more severe than those reported in accidents where alcohol is not a factor at all. This leads researchers to conclude that there is no level of alcohol that can truly be considered safe for driving. It’s real simple, you’ve heard it enough, and yet it can’t be overstated – if you drink, don’t drive. You will be keeping not only yourself safe, but also everyone else around you. Unfortunately, not everyone practices good common sense before getting behind the…Read More

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; facial scarring and disfigurement; skull fractures and/or brain injuries (some resulting in coma, either temporary or permanent); spinal cord injuries (some resulting in temporary or permanent paralysis); temporary or permanent damage to limbs (even resulting in amputation); and even death.

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 a much bigger chance of being severely injured or even killed in such an accident. If you or a loved one has sustained injuries in a truck accident, you might be eligible to recover your damages. An experienced truck accident attorney will sort out the exact nature of the crash, and who the responsible parties are. With over three decades of experience, the Truck Accidents Lawyers at the Fenstersheib Law Group, P.A. have successfully helped many people get the compensation they deserved.

Will Your New Teen Driver Be Safe Behind The Wheel?

Your teenager just got a brand new driver’s license, and there’s a lot of trepidation mixed in with your pride. It’s normal to be worried, but please know that there are things you can and should do to increase the chances that your teen will be safe on the South Florida roads. The first thing you can do is to lead by example. Drive the way you want your teen to drive – if you speed, tailgate, and drive aggressively, your teen probably will follow your lead when he or she gets behind the wheel. Make sure your teen realizes that driving demands full attention and fully understands the dangers associated with it – for the person behind the wheel, for the passengers, and for the other drivers and pedestrians with whom the road is shared. Establish a firm, clear set of rules – stressing that any unsafe behavior or failure to obey the rules means that the keys will be taken away.

Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product malfunctions cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is the federal government agency charged with protecting consumers and families from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of any of the thousands of types of consumer products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard – including baby products such as toys and cribs, furniture, power tools, cigarette lighters, and common household chemicals. The CPSC’s work has contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years. Clicking on the “Recalls” link on the website allows consumers not only to learn recent product recalls, but also to submit their own complaints. Any manufacturer identified is given the opportunity to comment on the complaints, and completed reports about potentially dangerous consumer products, along with the manufacturers’ responses, are published on the CPSC website so consumers can become aware of the potential hazards related to use of the products. If you or a loved one has suffered…Read More

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. While there are thousands of personal injury attorneys in South Florida, not all of them have the adequate staff and long-term experience to deal with personal injury issues, so it is extremely important to choose the right firm to successfully handle your case. The average personal injury case can cost thousands of dollars in research and litigation, and smaller legal firms may not have the resources necessary to successfully deal with such expenses. Choosing a lawyer with limited resources may result in settling your case too early and not getting the fair compensation you deserve. Larger legal firms can bring more resources to bear regarding experienced personnel and support staff, and this increases the likelihood of a successful verdict in your favor. The most respected personal injury attorneys and firms offer both free consultation services and a contingency arrangement – simply stated, if your chosen attorneys don’t win the case or successfully force a settlement, they don’t get paid. The experienced and dedicated Accident…Read More
