Restaurant owner sued after bartender death

Most people in Florida know that the state's laws regarding drinking and driving are tough but they may not always think about the various parties that may be identified as accountable or at least involved in a drunk driving accident. The fact of the matter is that an impaired driver may not be the only person targeted as contributing to an accident in which alcohol was a factor.

Study calls into question safety impact of trucker rule

For commercial truck drivers in Florida, fatigue has long been an identified risk and safety hazard. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration instituted what it calls its Hours of Service rule to tackle trucker fatigue and improve safety. Essentially, the Hours of Service rule places limits on how many hours in a day or work week a trucker may work or drive. It also outlines provisions for when rest breaks must be taken and for how long those rest periods must last.

Should you get that crick in your neck checked out?

Are you a Floridian who was involved in a car crash? If so, you might have ended up with a little twinge of pain in your neck either immediately after the crash, or within a few days or weeks. Though it may be tempting to write this pain off, it could be a sign of damage that needs treatment.

On disability? Watch what you post online

If you are receiving disability benefits from the U.S. Social Security Administration, you understand that getting approved for benefits can prove challenging in and of itself. Once the administration agrees to grant you benefits, though, this does not necessarily mean you will receive them for life. Instead, your situation will typically undergo periodic review to determine whether you still need those benefits.

Leaving the scene of a crash may result in serious penalties

Most Florida residents may know that the law requires them to remain at the scene of an accident and call for help if necessary. However, residents may not know that leaving the scene of a crash may result in significant legal penalties, including fines, license suspension and time in prison.
