Keeping your kids safe in the pool this summer

As Florida residents, you and your kids live in what is probably the nation’s best state for fun in the sun. A lot of this fun takes place in water, be it the ocean or a pool. No one need tell you how much your kids enjoy water games. Whether it is your toddler splashing around in the bathtub with his or her duckies or your older kids playing yet another round of Marco Polo or your teenagers showing off for their friends, water fun is a big part of most Florida kids’ lives.

Here’s what is currently known about the Miami bridge collapse

Several weeks ago, we discussed the collapse of the pedestrian bridge under construction near Florida International University in Miami. Like many people in Florida and across the country, you were probably shocked and saddened to hear about the tragedy. You may have also wanted to know what exactly caused the collapse and who is liable.

Car crashes, falls, common causes of workplace injuries

A recent survey on the most common causes of workers' compensation claims revealed that over 85 percent of all serious and catastrophic claims, that is, those likely to result in payouts of hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars because of a one-time incident, can be attributed to one of five causes.

When a car wreck results in a brain injury

As a Florida driver, you know that traffic keeps getting worse and other drivers seem to be getting more aggressive and/or more distracted. This deadly combination makes it likely that sooner or later, one of these negligent drivers will hit your vehicle. When that happens, the results could be catastrophic, especially if you receive a traumatic brain injury as a result of the accident.

Florida suffers from high rate of fatal vehicle accidents

According to recent statistics, Florida does not fare well when it comes to protecting people's lives on the roads. Overall, Florida ranks right in the middle of the states when it comes to premature deaths, which is defined as dying before the age of 75.

Can you still get PI compensation if you messed up?

Some people decline to pursue personal injury claims because they mistakenly believe that, because they had a degree of fault in the accident, the law does not entitle them to anything. However, Florida is a state that practices comparative fault. You can often still recover compensation even if you bore some of the fault for an accident.

More than 500 Floridians died in motorcycle accidents in 2017

According to a recent report, 504 motorcyclists across Florida died in fatal motorcycle accidents in 2017. This number, which is preliminary, is significantly lower than the 574 motorcycle fatalities that were reported in Florida in 2016.
