How intoxication affects liability in a slip-and-fall accident

People in Florida leave their homes every day for various reasons. They may go to work, shopping, to restaurants, sporting events and other places. When they go to these various places, they are entering onto other people's property. Most of the time, people are invited onto these people's property and if they are hurt while on the property, the property owner may be liable for the costs associated with the injuries.

What parents may recover after the death of a minor child

No parent in Florida ever wants to outlive their children. It can be completely devastating both emotionally and mentally. This is true regardless of whether the death was caused by a disease, illness or by a fatal accident. However, if the death was caused by the negligence of another, it can be especially devastating knowing that the death could have been avoided.

Helping victims move on after a spinal cord injury

All body parts have a function and sometimes it is not until a person hurts a certain body part that they realize what that function is. The amount of pain or problems caused by an injury depends on what is hurt and how bad it is hurt. If someone scrapes a knee, it may cause some irritation, but it won't have a major impact on his or her life. However, if someone hurts the spinal cord, it can completely change their life.
