Charges pending following Florida car accident

All Florida drivers must comply with all traffic laws and safety regulations. Doing so, however, does not guarantee that every motorist will comply. A horrific head-on collision occurred on Christmas Eve that has resulted in charges pending against the driver of one of the vehicles. When a car accident results in fatalities, as this one did, property damage is merely the tip of the iceberg when determining the financial consequences of the collision.

Why are the number of fatal pedestrian accidents going up?

Walking and riding a bike should be good for a person's health, not dangerous. Being a pedestrian is actually a lot more dangerous than you might think. Your risk of dying while on foot or bicycle is actually higher now than it was just a few years ago. Sadly, fatal pedestrian accidents are becoming more and more common.

Fatal auto accident: When tragedy strikes during holidays

Most Florida households are currently full swing into their 2019 holiday seasons. Many people are eagerly counting down the days until they gather with family and friends for special celebrations. Learning that a loved one has died in a fatal auto accident during the holidays takes grief to a whole new level.

Denial of disability claim is not uncommon

A debilitating condition can result from an illness, injury, or a birth injury or defect. The Social Security Administration considers such conditions disabilities when they prevent people from obtaining or maintaining gainful employment even with accommodations. If you have a serious and lasting condition that keeps you from working, you may qualify for disability benefits.

Coping with loss after a fatal auto accident

Nothing can prepare you for getting a phone call informing you that your loved one has been in a terrible collision. While the time following that call might be vague or cluttered in your mind, chances are you will always remember exactly where you were and what you were doing when the phone rang. If you recently lost a family member to a fatal auto accident in Florida, you might be navigating a wide range of emotions right now, especially if you believe another person's negligence was responsible for the collision.

Car accident injuries can be a major setback to your holidays

The holiday season is once again underway in Florida and across the country, which means there is likely to be a lot more traffic than usual. Whether you're simply trying to get to work on time or are venturing out on a holiday shopping trip, it pays to leave the house ahead of schedule so you won't be late if you get stuck in traffic. With more vehicles on the road at this time of year, the chances of suffering car accident injuries increase.

Stay safe if traveling the roads this holiday season

For most days of the year, you likely stay in your home state and do little traveling unless it is for vacation. With the holiday season here, you may have plans to come to Florida or leave the state to see family or friends for the holidays. You may look forward to the trip, but you may also worry about the amount of time you will spend in the car.

Florida truck accident had disastrous results

While every Florida driver must obey all traffic laws and safety regulations, unexpected circumstances may place a motorist in a position where he or she is unable to avoid a collision. A truck accident took place on a recent Wednesday that transformed what one man said was an otherwise uneventful trip into a disaster. He later said he had gripped the steering wheel as tightly as he could and braced himself because he thought a tractor-trailer was going to hit him.
