Many suffer personal injury after major crash

A crash involving multiple vehicles is likely to result in the severe injury or death of at least one of the individuals involved. Florida residents may recall one such accident that occurred last week on the morning of April 26. The crash involved 17 different vehicles, and many people suffered personal injury because of the accident. 

Negligence claimed in medical malpractice case

The death of a family member is often a difficult thing for people to come to terms with. Some people, as some Florida residents may know, never fully recover from that loss, especially if they believe that their loved one's death could have been prevented. One woman has filed a complaint, claiming that medical malpractice and negligence ultimately caused the death of a male patient in January of last year. 

Jogger suffers personal injury in hit-and-run accident

People across the country are constantly distracted by their cellphones in some way, whether it be by a text, social media or a simple phone call. While this constant level of distraction is not normally a problem, other than being slightly frustrating, this can quickly change if the distracted individual is behind the wheel of a car. In Florida, a young man suffered a personal injury after being hit by a driver who was distracted by his cellphone. 

Woman accused of drunk driving with a child in the car

Alcohol affects people in a variety of different ways. Some become overly reckless and careless, while others attempt to be overly cautious. However, actions that an impaired individual believes to be cautious or safe might actually be just as dangerous as more typically reckless behaviors. A mother in Florida was accused of drunk driving after police stopped her on a busy roadway. 

Drugged drivers threaten the safety of other Florida motorists

When a driver consumes something that affects his or her ability to safely operate a vehicle, it can have devastating consequences. The decision to get behind the wheel after taking drugs or alcohol is both irresponsible and completely preventable, yet it is still a significant problem on Florida roads.

Amusement park blamed for tourist personal injury

Amusement parks are a popular stop for tourists in Florida. Some families save up for months for their vacations, but an injury can bring an abrupt end to the fun. Recently, Seaworld was blamed for a tourist personal injury when a visitor to the park was caught in a turnstile gate.
