Like many people who live in Florida, you may enjoy the moderate temperatures and the ability to be out on foot more than you might be able to do comfortably in other parts of the country. While walking can be a great form of exercise, it can also put you in harm's way when sharing busy roads with motor vehicle traffic. Too many drivers continue to make unwise choices and do not always pay attention to pedestrians.
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.
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.

Since the advent of cell phones, we—as a society—are more distracted than ever. We stare at our phones when we’re at the gym, waiting in line at the grocery store or walking the dog. And even though, psychologically, we know it’s unsafe, most of us even do it when we’re behind the wheel.
2019 is quickly approaching. You may be looking forward to taking some well-deserved time off of work, and spending it with family and friends.
Last week, your life was turned upside-down. You were driving home from work, when suddenly a distracted driver in the oncoming lane veered right into you—colliding with you head on.
