Drunk driving is a serious problem in every state, but at certain times in Florida, we see spikes in drunk driving accidents. At the end of summer, just before and during the Labor Day weekend, the risk of being involved in a DUI accident is significantly higher.
Damage to the central nervous system is often irreversible, and people who have suffered serious nerve injuries may be unable to work or provide for their families. If a brain or spinal cord injury was caused by someone else's negligence, then a lawsuit may be necessary for the injured person to receive much-needed rehabilitation, therapy and treatment.
In Florida, we generally think of a swimming pool as a place of fun and recreation.

After an injurious or fatal car accident, it is important to identify all of the factors that contributed to the crash. Missing or improper signage, road defects, speeding, distracted driving, impaired driving and other traffic violations can all cause serious crashes that change people's lives forever. Victims or their families have a right to know exactly why an injury or a death occurred.
