Complex business law matters need experienced lawyers

Business is constantly in flux in Florida and across the country. With today's complicated political climate, businesses need to be cognizant of how to adhere to the law and advance toward their goals. With corporate transactions, it is vital to have a legal firm that is immersed in the law and caring for its clients' needs no matter what business they are in. This holds true whether the issues are linked to a business acquisition, regulatory compliance, a corporate dispute or any other matter that comes up.

Separate car accidents lead to death of Florida trooper

Florida law enforcement officers are aware of how dangerous the job can be when they decide to take it. Much of the danger they face is generally considered to be due to chasing criminals and making arrests. However, they are also vulnerable when they are helping people and an accident happens. With any job in which a person is placed in danger, there is always the chance that an accident will occur. Those who have been affected by this and lost a loved one need to bear in mind the steps to take in filing a personal injury lawsuit.

New iPhone app seeks to lower distracted driving car accidents

Texting and driving and other distracted driving behaviors are a consistently referenced reason for a large segment of car accidents in Florida and across the nation. Law enforcement and governmental authorities have tried to diminish the frequency of drivers who are using their smartphones and other devices behind the wheel. Another strategy that might prove useful for this endeavor is the companies taking the initiative and implementing methods to stop people from texting and driving.

Why swimming pools can be dangerous

Swimming pools can be a wonderful source of entertainment. They can be very unsafe too, helping to turn a backyard party into a tragedy, or a fun-filled hotel stay into a situation where someone gets seriously hurt.

Car accidents more common for younger drivers who have ADHD

In Florida and across the U.S., it is widely known that younger drivers generally lack the experience and knowledge to avoid accidents and circumstances that an older, more experienced driver might avoid. However, anecdotal evidence will never surpass statistical studies as to the risk that younger drivers present. One study from JAMA Pediatrics examined the frequency with which young drivers who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are in a crash. It showed that those with ADHD are 36 percent more likely to be in a crash compared with other adolescents behind the wheel.

Danger of construction accidents evident after 3 workers hurt

Construction projects are constantly going on in Florida. Many people earn their living by working in the construction industry. While most worksites are safe and the projects move forward without incident, there is always a danger of something going wrong that can cause injuries and fatalities. Construction accidents can cause long-term problems for the injured person and his or her family. Because there can be such wide-ranging issues after a construction accident, filing a personal injury lawsuit is often the only way to secure fair compensation.

Teen car accidents a rising problem, especially in the summer

Florida drivers and drivers throughout the nation must be vigilant as to the risks they face when they are out on the road. Certain factors are common with car accidents, and studies seek to find them and take steps to reduce their frequency. For those who have been in an accident, these factors can be important when considering a legal claim after the accident has happened.

Product liability concerns spurred by child seat recall

Floridians who purchase products are expecting them to work as they are supposed to and to be safe. However, there is occasionally a failure on the part of the manufacturer toward achieving that end. It is especially egregious if the product that ended up being declared dangerous and recalled was designed for children. Those who have had a child injured or killed because of a dangerous or poorly designed product might have the basis for a product liability case to be compensated.
