Defective parts cause numerous motor vehicle accidents

Everyone knows that automobiles are made up of numerous parts. Auto manufacturers make some, but others come from third party vendors. When you purchased your vehicle, you surely expected that every part worked properly and that it was safe. You might have found out the hard way that some parts can be defective, a problem which leads to numerous motor vehicle accidents each year.

The victim's responsibilities in a personal injury claim

Rarely does a day go by here in Florida when someone is not injured due to some sort of accident. If an accident was the result of someone else's negligence, the victim may consider filing a personal injury claim to receive compensation for damages such as medical bills and lost wages. However, the victim has certain responsibilities when it comes to such claims.

Whiplash: a serious injury with serious implications

Whiplash is one of the most common car accident injuries, and perhaps for this reason, many fail to understand the serious nature of this type of neck injury. While it is not a life-threatening injury, it can have serious implications for a car accident victim, causing pain and other issues for weeks, even months after the accident. 

A prescription for compensation after medical malpractice

Doctors have a responsibility to provide to Florida patients care that meets a certain standard. Failing in this duty is more than a mistake; it can actually be harmful to patients, making medical conditions worse, and causing additional pain and suffering. 

Many motor vehicle accidents happen in early morning on weekends

The weekends are a time for Florida residents to kick back, relax and enjoy time with friends and family. In many cases, people are on the state's roadways in the early morning hours after a night of fun. This means that a potential exists for motor vehicle accidents when people are tired, impaired or otherwise not at their best as they drive.

Suspected drunk driver arrested re 2 motor vehicle accidents

Five Florida students and a pregnant woman had no idea what was headed their way. On a recent Thursday evening, they encountered a man described by officials as a "highly" drunk driver. He was later arrested for causing two motor vehicle accidents. The driver -- who didn't even stop -- first plowed over five school-aged children. He and his vehicle were located some distance away after it had also struck the car occupied by the pregnant woman.

Workers' compensation issues: Heat-related illnesses

It may only be May, but higher temperatures are on the way here in Florida. This means that outdoor workers are at risk of heat-related illnesses that could cause serious injury or death. Even though workers' compensation benefits are available to those who fall ill, they would probably prefer not to become ill at all.
