Fatal collision in Florida leads to accusations against NHTSA

There are many gadgets that make travel more convenient than it was a few decades ago. For instance, it used to be necessary to pull out a map in order to find a correct travel route. Today, a click of a button on a GPS device talks drivers to their destinations. However, advanced technology is not always as helpful as one might hope, such as a fatal auto accident that occurred when a driver had his car on autopilot.

Workers' compensation benefits can help grieving Florida families

There is a lot of new construction going on in Florida and many other states. The industry has a high risk of worker injuries. Employers are obligated to provide proper training and safety equipment to help construction employees stay as safe as possible on the job. A community in another state is grieving the loss of one of its workers, who was killed in a workplace accident on a recent Tuesday, just before noon. The workers' compensation program can be a great asset to grieving family members in situations like this.

Turning left at traffic lights can be tricky. There is often an arrow light as well as a regular light. Drivers in Florida are obligated to adhere to traffic laws and safety regulations, which include yielding on a left turn when the light is green with no arrow if there is an oncoming car on the other side of the light. A recent fatal motor vehicle accident occurred when a van carrying members of a Florida rowing team turned left on a green light with no arrow.

Workplace injuries: How dangerous is your job?

When you go to work each day, are you among other Florida workers who do so with the understanding that they are at great risk for injury on the job? The answer largely depends on what you do for a living. Some jobs are inherently more dangerous than others. Then again, don't think that, just because you sit at a desk all day in an office, you have zero risk of workplace injuries.

Workers' compensation: What if a workplace fatality occurs?

Many Florida households include members who leave their homes to go to work each day. Most people assume they will travel to and from their job sites without any serious, unexpected problems arising. The fact is, however, that some types of work are inherently dangerous, such as construction jobs or fire and rescue missions. Thankfully, most employers purchase workers' compensation insurance to provide financial benefits to employees who suffer injuries while carrying out their duties in the normal course of an average workday.

Pickup trucks and SUVs cause more fatal car accidents

It may seem like there are endless options when vehicle shopping. You might have considered a lot of different things when looking for your own car, like Bluetooth capability, stereo systems and even crash avoidance technology. You probably also considered its size, but maybe not for the right reasons. When it comes to car accidents, your smaller vehicle is at a big disadvantage.

Florida collision prompts the need for medical airflight

Florida roadways are often busy during morning hours. From people commuting to and from work to students and faculty traveling to school, traffic often gets backed up to a standstill. The more vehicles on the road at any given moment, the greater the chance that a car accident might occur.

Police can sometimes tell if a driver is drunk -- can you?

In a perfect world, you could always get behind the wheel of your car and enjoy an uneventful trip where you ultimately safely arrive at your chosen destination. In reality, any number of problem issues can arise that delay or impede your travel plans. For instance, you might arrive late to work because of unexpected traffic that has come to a halt due a collision in the roadway.

A sideswipe crash could leave you with serious injuries

If most drivers thought about the number of times they could potentially get into an accident on Florida roadways, they may never want to drive again. Of course, you and most other people can put this thought out of your mind and trust others on the road to act appropriately while behind the wheel. Still, you know that not every driver will do what they are supposed to, so you should always remain vigilant about focusing on driving and watching for hazards.
