Police suspect Florida man of drunk driving

Florida police responded to the scene of an accident just shy of 1 a.m. on a recent Monday.

The vehicle was a Lamborghini, and the situation led to drunk driving charges for the driver.

What causes emergency room errors?

If you have to visit a Florida emergency room, you probably assume you will get quality medical care in a timely manner. The ER is a place for patients to go after hours or in emergency situations, and the doctors and nurses who work there must be quick-thinking individuals who can keep up in a fast-paced environment. Sometimes, the nature of working in an ER can lead to mistakes in patient care.

Hurt on a boat while in Florida? You may have a case

Personal injury claims may follow Florida restaurant accident

It is common for Florida residents and tourists to gather with friends at local eateries. It is not common, however, for restaurant customers to fear personal injury while enjoying a nice meal. Most diners reasonably expect to make it through their meal without worrying about their personal safety. Unfortunately, disaster recently struck at a Beef O'Brady's franchise. 

Florida drivers who run red lights often cause personal injury

A Florida motorist may be cautious and alert behind the wheel, obeying all traffic regulations. However, if another nearby driver is negligent or reckless, the careful driver is still at risk for a collision. For instance, if two cars approach an intersection and one driver proceeds to enter the crossroads on a green light but another driver fails to stop at a red light, it is a recipe for disaster. Personal injury and loss of life occurred after a recent incident like this.

Medical malpractice: What constitutes failed diagnosis?

Every year, many thousands of Florida residents need medical assistance. Every person's medical condition is unique, though there are common symptoms to guide a physician to make a particular diagnosis in certain situations. If a doctor fails to diagnose a patient properly, and he or she suffers injury because of it, grounds for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit may exist.
