Is an auto defect a threat to your safety?

When you get in your car and drive, you likely do so with the expectation that you will be safe. However, there are certain dangers that could be a direct threat to your health and well-being, including hidden dangers inside your own vehicles. An auto defect is serious, and it could increase your chance of involvement in a serious car accident. 

Fatal accident is an example of the dangers of negligent driving

A recent multi-vehicle accident in the Tampa area left one young man dead. The deceased was a 33-year-old husband, father of two children and Navy veteran, and his wife suffered minor injuries in the crash as well. The other two drivers did not suffer any injuries. According to the wife's account, the couple was traveling home from vacation when they were the unfortunate victims of another driver's actions.

How do you know if you are eligible for disability benefits?

Florida residents who are unable to work because of a medical condition could be eligible for certain types of benefits through the Social Security Administration. If you believe that you could have a rightful claim to this type of support, it can be helpful to learn more about this process and the specific medical conditions that could qualify you for disability benefits.

Uninsured motorists place your life in jeopardy

Some people make to-do lists each day, checking off their accomplishments as they go. Others wake up in the morning with a goal in mind and only a hazy idea of the route they will take to get there. Whichever personality type is yours, you know how frustrating it can be when something happens during the day to disrupt your rhythm and ruin your plans.

Workers' compensation does not always compensate

Like many states, Florida's workers' compensation system has its flaws. Workers may complain about the amount of benefits they receive, and employers complain about the cost of keeping everyone insured. Nevertheless, in general, the idea of providing this type of insurance for employees benefits everyone.

Seeking disability benefits for fibromyalgia

The pain of fibromyalgia is undeniable. Like many who suffer from this mysterious illness, you may have been perfectly healthy, perhaps even athletic. Out of nowhere, the symptoms struck, turning you from an active, energetic person to someone who can barely get out of bed some days.

Distracted driving dangers are right before your eyes

There is no question that we live in an age of technological miracles. Considering that only a couple of generations ago, the common form of transportation was a horse-drawn carriage, the phenomenal advances in that industry are nothing short of awe-inspiring.

When doing the same-old-same-old at work leads to injury

If you were to survey all employees in Florida regarding how many types of duties they regularly perform at work, many would likely say they basically do the same thing day in and day out, without much variation. Perhaps your own workplace duties pretty much stay the same from one day to the next. You might also be among those who prefer it that way since it's often easier to perfect a craft when one is able to practice it a lot.

Trucking toward compensation after a semitrailer accident

In the moment that it takes for a large commercial truck or semitrailer to collide with your vehicle, your life could change drastically. You may be left with serious pain, injuries and exorbitant medical bills. The impact of a truck accident can be detrimental, but what happened to you may not be your fault.

Your arthritis could be grounds for a disability benefits claim

You may know that individuals who are unable to work due to a medical condition could be qualified to receive disability benefits, but you may not realize that this could apply to people with arthritis as well. Arthritis is a relatively common medical condition, and yet it is quite common for people with serious cases to find that they are unable to work due to pain and limitations.
