Danger of boating accidents shown as young woman dies in crash

Boating is a leisurely and enjoyable activity for both Florida residents and tourists seeking to enjoy all the state offers. While the bulk of these trips are completed without incident and everyone returns home safely, there are times when circumstances or behaviors lead to boating accidents. Whether there are injuries or death from boating incidents, there are many issues that will arise in its aftermath that may give rise to a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.

Law enforcement steps up efforts to reduce Florida car accidents

Motor vehicle crashes in Florida sometimes happen in certain areas with greater frequency that they do in others. They also occur due to certain behaviors on the part of drivers. Research and the statistics that accompany it can give a warning sign to law enforcement that they need to take steps to try and reduce the number of car accidents, truck accidents and any other types of collisions in these particular areas and because of these behaviors.

Is an insurance company trying to deny your accident claim?

If you suffered an injury in a car crash, you may have thought you were perfectly capable of filing a claim with the other driver’s insurance company. You assumed that since you were the victim, you were due compensation, but that is not the way things turned out. The insurance company disputed your claim because, according to their legal department, you did not have sufficient proof to show that their policy holder was responsible for the accident.

Navigating the complexities of real estate law

Everyone in Florida who is involved in a real estate transaction in any capacity must make certain that all the laws are adhered to and proper procedures are followed. This is true for anyone whether it is a home purchase, a commercial property, a vacation property or any other venture into real estate. Since purchasing a property is one of the biggest financial commitments that can be made, making a mistake can have far-reaching consequences that can last a lifetime and negatively influence every area of a person's life.

Research examines frequency of car accidents for those with ADHD

There are a seemingly endless number of reasons for car accidents to occur in Florida and across the nation. People with certain medical conditions may cause a car accident because of their issues, and that is an important part of research to determine how these crashes can be prevented. One recent study found that those suffering from attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are more prone to a crash if they have been diagnosed and failed to take their medicine to treat it.

Hit-and-run crash leads to wrongful death of pedestrian

In Florida, drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians must make every effort to share the road and keep everyone safe. Since the state is so reliant on its roadways and people use a variety of methods to get to and fro, it is unavoidable that car accidents will occur. When these crashes are bicycle and pedestrian accidents, those who are not accorded the safety of a vehicle will undoubtedly suffer injuries and fatalities. After the accident has taken place, those involved are expected to stay at the scene to make sure the others are safe and to call for aid if need be. That does not always happen. Regardless of the circumstances, those who were injured or lost a loved one in a crash must be cognizant of the steps necessary to file a personal injury case.

Many Florida roads in the top 10 for fatal car accidents

Attempting to determine the cause of accidents on the roadways and perhaps prevent them, companies and government agencies are constantly doing research into how, why and where car accidents and truck accidents occur. These studies often provide valuable information and statistics. One in particular showed troublesome numbers for drivers in Florida as four of the top five deadliest roadways are located in the state. For those who have suffered injuries in a crash or lost a loved one, this data can be useful in trying to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.

Reports on car accidents often lack vital information

Motor vehicle accidents in Fort Lauderdale, throughout Florida and across the U.S. happen every day. These can cause injuries and wrongful death. Because of the physical, personal, emotional and financial toll these car accidents can exact on a person and his or her family, a legal filing is often the only way to achieve some semblance of justice with compensation for what was lost. However, these legal filings are frequently contingent on determining the cause of the crash, and this is made more difficult with the lack of information that accident reports provide.
