The link between texting and motor vehicle accidents

As long as there have been automobiles, there have been distracted drivers. Unfortunately, distracted driving become a dangerous epidemic in Florida and across the country. The same technological advances designed to make our lives easier appear to be at the heart of the increase in motor vehicle accidents attributed to distracted driving.

Will Florida man's family seek workers' compensation benefits?

Every occupation comes with its own set of risks regardless of whether done here in Florida or elsewhere in the country. Even knowing those risks and taking safety precautions does not always prevent fatal accidents from happening. Regardless, losing a loved one due to a work accident is devastating under any circumstances. The sudden financial losses that come with it are unexpected and can cause significant strain for a family. In many of these circumstances, surviving family members are entitled to benefits from Florida's workers' compensation system.

Denied workers' compensation claim? It's not the end of the road.

There is nothing more frustrating to an injured Florida worker than to learn that his or her workers' compensation came back denied. A denied claim can mean that it will take longer to get the benefits to which you may have a rightful claim, but it is not the end of the road for you. 

Pedestrians involved in motor vehicle accidents may not make it

Most of Florida's pedestrians know the risks of crossing busy streets even if they are at an intersection. However, many tend to discount that any danger exists as long as they are on sidewalks, at bus stops or otherwise not in the street. Unfortunately, many motor vehicle accidents end up involving pedestrians who thought they were standing or walking in a safe place.

Families may seek more than just workers' compensation benefits

Losing a loved one due to an on-the-job accident is difficult enough, but when a family loses an income that they counted on and has to pay for funeral and burial expenses as well, the financial toll can make the loss even more of a burden to bear. Florida's workers' compensation system may provide death benefits to eligible surviving family members that could help with those financial burdens. Obtaining those benefits could be problematic without the right help.
