Workers' compensation: Tragic accident results in fatality

Florida workers who deal with heavy equipment or large, commercial vehicles are constantly at risk of suffering workplace injuries. While an office can also suffer injury, those who work in construction, use machinery or drive trucks during the workday typically have a greater chance of being involved in a workplace accident. Workers' compensation benefits provide financial relief to injured workers during recovery, as well as to spouses or immediate family members in cases where an on-the-job accident resulted in a worker's death.

Fatal auto accident: Police searching for hit-and-run driver

In Florida and beyond, pedestrians are often at risk when nearby motorists are negligent or reckless behind the wheel. Earlier this year, a tragedy occurred that resulted in the death of a woman and her dog. The incident sparked a police investigation that remains active at this time. A man who is grieving the loss of a loved one in the fatal auto accident says he trusts that justice will be served.

Embarrassment may be the least of your worries after a fall

Falling, especially in public, is often considered an embarrassing event. Unfortunately, many public places have serious hazards that could put you and other visitors at risk of tripping, slipping or otherwise falling. In many cases, embarrassment may be the least of the resulting troubles as a fall could lead to serious injuries.

Car accident takes a life in Florida

Florida intersections can be highly dangerous places, like most sections of crossroads across the country. A driver has to be especially alert and cautious when approaching an intersection whether it is secured by traffic lights or unmarked. No matter how skilled, experienced or careful a driver someone is, however, if a nearby motorist is reckless or negligent, disaster can occur. A recent car accident ended tragically.

Complications can arise when you file for workers' compensation

You may be one of many Florida workers who are at risk for injury in the workplace. Such workers would include those in the construction industry, as well as those who work in the fishing, agriculture, aviation or logging industries. Then again, you could work behind a desk in an office and slip on a wet floor or suffer any number of injuries on the job. Filing a workers' compensation claim is common after a workplace accident, but it's also common for challenges to arise during the process.

Is technology the key to stopping distracted driving?

Distracted driving is a serious safety concern in Florida and throughout the country. Even though most drivers understand the risks associated with looking at their phones or losing focus while operating a vehicle, it still remains one of the leading causes of car accidents. Automakers are now trying to build safer and smarter vehicles to help combat this problem. 

Florida college student sues re car accident injuries

A request has been made for a case that was filed in another state to be transferred to Florida. The case involves car accident injuries suffered by a member of a collegiate women's rowing team in a collision that occurred in this state while she was traveling with her team in a van that her coach was driving at the time. Sadly, in addition to the young woman's personal injuries, there was also a fatality in the crash. 

When a loved one is in a fatal auto accident

Receiving a phone call that there has been a serious collision involving a loved one is a devastating experience that many Florida families have known. If a fatal auto accident occurs, there is no way to undo the events that have already occurred. However, if the collision was caused by another person's negligent or reckless conduct, an immediate family may seek restitution by filing a wrongful death claim in a civil court.
