Driver's actions lead to several motor vehicle accidents at once

In Florida and elsewhere, some motor vehicle accidents cause other vehicles to crash as they attempt to avoid the initial incident or become an unwitting participant in it. Ultimately, numerous vehicles can be involved as several small motor vehicle accidents create a chain reaction. The injuries caused during these wrecks can vary from minor to fatal.

Personal injury claims encompass more than car accidents

Florida residents are often the victims of numerous types of accidents due to the negligence of another person or persons. People are injured in many ways and under a variety of circumstances other than just in car accidents. In fact, car crashes involve just one area of personal injury law.

The deadly link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer

For more than 100 years, Johnson & Johnson has marketed products containing talc as an essential part of the daily hygiene regimen. Women were encouraged to use the products each morning for a variety of reasons. Marketing messages have included "Just a sprinkle a day helps keep odor away." Recently, however, a devastating link between the mineral talc and ovarian cancer has left women searching for answers.

Multiple fatality motor vehicle accidents can devastate families

Each year, far too many Florida families lose loved ones in crashes on the state's roadways. In some of the motor vehicle accidents that occur, one family could lose multiple members. These types of tragedies are devastating to families and will most likely change their dynamics forever.

Beyond workers' compensation benefits

Florida workers who have been injured at work suffer from more than their physical wounds. There are fears of how both the medical and household bills will be paid during recovery. Workers' compensation benefits might be available to help, but in some cases, the injuries were the cause of someone other than a fellow worker or the employer.

Some motor vehicle accidents are caused during police chases

Pursuing a suspect is one of the most dangerous actions any law enforcement officer can undertake. Even with lights and sirens, officers are required to follow specific procedures, such as slowing at intersections to be sure they are clear before entering them. Regardless, there are still motor vehicle accidents that are caused by officers during police chases.
