Ignore online offers for vaccinations. There are no products proven to treat or prevent COVID-19 at this time.

Defective or dangerous products or devices cause thousands of injuries in the United States every year. People harmed by an unsafe product or device may have a cause of action against the individual or company who manufactured, designed, or sold that product or device. Product Liability Law set the parameters and legal rules against individuals or companies who are responsible for the defective products. Product Liability Laws are different from ordinary injury law. The plaintiff, must prove that product or device that caused the injury was indeed defective and that the flaw made this product dangerous and unsafe to use. There are three types of defects that may cause injury. Design defects, meaning there is an error in a product design before it’s manufactured, making it naturally unsafe. Manufacturing defects, develops in the process of assembly of the product or device. Marketing defects, this refers to improper labeling, inadequate instructions or safety warnings.

How Is Compensation Determined In Car Accident Cases?

There are five major factors taken into account to determine the settlement amount in a personal injury claim resulting from a car crash. The first is the amount of money spent on medical treatments and related expenses, such as medicines and drugs, professional fees and hospital bills. The second is damages to property; if a personal injury is the result of a car crash, the compensation will include the cost of repair of the car or vehicle. The third category is the amount of money spent on car rentals while the vehicle is being repaired. And the fourth and perhaps most important factor is loss of income incurred as a result of the injuries suffered in the accident. Obviously, the length of time missed from work will be a big factor in the computation of the lost income. It is of the utmost importance, in order to present a strong case in court, to save all receipts related to the crash, both for medical and repair expenses. The last consideration is pain and suffering, and how the accident will affect your long-term quality of life.…Read More

Speeding May Not Get You There Faster; In Fact, It May Not Get You There At All!

Automobile accidents happen more frequently in Florida than anyone fully realizes – current statistics reveal that there’s a crash every 10 seconds, with close to 5 fatalities reported every hour as a result of those crashes. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that speeding is not only a major contributing factor in vehicle accidents nationwide, but also results in a higher percentage of fatalities when crashes occur at higher than normal speeds. When other dangerous factors – such as fatigue, distracted driving, cellphone use, texting while driving and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs – are combined with speeding, the results can prove devastating. According to NHTSA estimates, speed-related crashes cost Americans upwards of $40 billion each year. Please use common sense every time you get behind the wheel on South Florida’s roadways; plan wisely and take your time – it’s a much better proposition to arrive a little late than not to arrive at all. If you or a loved one has been involved in an automobile, truck or motorcycle accident in Florida due to the negligence of others, contact…Read More

Rights Of Construction Workers Regarding Workers’ Comp And Workplace Injuries

Construction sites are one of the most accident-prone workplaces in America, and some of the most frequently reported worker fatalities occur in the construction sector. Common causes for construction site accidents include falls, being struck by objects, electrocution, scaffolding accidents, and trench collapses. While many accidents are the result of worker distraction or failure to follow established workplace rules, some accidents are caused by negligence on the part of the construction companies in failing to provide the proper occupational safety equipment such as hardhats, safety vests, goggles and health requirements required by law. Such negligence may be reflected in the lack of proper fall protection safeguards, poor quality of communication standards in the work site, poorly built scaffolding, improper control of electricity, and inadequate respiratory protections, to name a few. If you are a construction worker and have suffered a workplace accident as a result of your employer’s failure to follow standard occupational safety and health requirements, you may be entitled to compensation not only for the physical damages suffered but also for the pain and suffering associated with those damages including lost wages. The…Read More

Bicycle accidents can result in injuries, and these injuries can result in short- or long-term complications. Besides the common minor scrapes and bruising resulting from common spills, most serious injuries result from collisions with motor vehicles, which 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. According to 2018 statistics from NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), there were 857 cyclist’s deaths on our national roads. 75% of the deaths occurred in urban areas, with children ages 5 to 14 being most at risk for death and injury from these accidents.
