How can you prevent an electrical shock drowning this summer?

People are on the water many months out of the year in Florida, and this summer will be no exception. The beautiful beaches and marinas throughout the Sunshine State provide many opportunities for recreation and sport, but they can also be the source of an unexpected danger you may not know about – electric shock in the water.

How do you handle suing someone you know?

One reason that some people are hesitant to sue after a car accident or personal injury is that they know the other party.

It may seem very wrong to sue your beloved cousin after you slipped and fell on her property.

You worry about his mental and emotional health and about keeping your family together.

Hit-and-run epidemic continuing in Florida, across country
