Street racing is to blame in many motor vehicle accidents

Some drivers here in Florida and across the country fail to respect the sanctity of life. They do not consider how their actions will affect the other motorists on the road or even their own passengers. Instead, they drink and drive, text and otherwise get distracted behind the wheel. Then there are those who race down residential and urban streets as though they are immune to causing motor vehicle accidents.

Social Security Disability benefits for military members

After serving their country, perhaps even serving in a combat zone, some military members face unique challenges that could prevent them from holding consistent employment once they return home. Individuals who are unable to work due to a mental or physical condition could be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD), Florida military veterans included.

Deadly motor vehicle accidents can devastate victims' families

Florida families who have lost loved ones know the toll it can take. Deadly motor vehicle accidents can devastate families, and it could take a significant amount of time to heal even though the hole left behind can never be filled. When one family heard about the death of one of its members recently, the only comment they had when reporters called was that it was too hard to talk about and that the family -- including the victim's 11-year-old daughter -- is in mourning.

Claims can be filed against estates in motor vehicle accidents

There is no rhyme or reason in who will survive a crash. In many instances, the drivers who are at fault in motor vehicle accidents do not survive, which means that the victims and their families will not receive any closure from the criminal justice system. However, in those instances, the victims can file personal injury claims -- or wrongful death claims if the victim died -- in a Florida civil court against the estates of the deceased drivers in an effort to receive the closure they need, along with a monetary judgment for the damages they incurred in the aftermath of an accident.

Is your workers' compensation claim not being taken seriously?

Most Florida employers do what they can to provide their employees with a safe work environment. Even so, accidents happen, and people often suffer injuries as a result. You may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits, and if your request for them is not being taken seriously or is denied, you should seek help right away.
