Mutiple cars involved in fatal auto accident in Florida

Florida is a prime location for vacations, retirement and year-round residence. The state has many amenities to offer.

Lawsuit alleges Tesla technology cause of fatal accident

Vehicle accidents are sadly nothing new or even unusual to residents in Florida. However, it is important for people to not just blindly accept these events but instead to ensure that they are their family members are properly compensated if an accident was caused by another person's negligence.

Knowing who can file a wrongful death lawsuit

When you lose a loved one to a car accident in West Palm Beach, that loss is often felt far beyond the emotional void that they leave behind.

If you are considering a similar action, you should know who the state of Florida allows to file (and to benefit from) such a lawsuit. 

Defining a survival action

Many may consider taking legal action immediately following a car accident, yet circumstances may prevent them from actually doing so. You might have a loved one in such a situation.

Many to whom this has happened have come to us here at Rosenthal, Levy, Simon & Ryles thinking that the chance to pursue a lawsuit against those responsible for their loved ones' accidents has passed. If you share the same concern, not to worry; your window is not yet shut.

Special attention needed to adapt to e-scooters

Scooters have been around a long time. For much of their history they have been a vehicle for child's play. In recent years, though, the advent of microelectronic motors, batteries and ride-sharing services have sparked an explosion in scooter usage in cities across the U.S., and with it has come a new source of concern about public safety.
