Woman says sparkling water caused her personal injury

Florida sparkling water consumers really have no way of knowing what is in the products they drink other than by reading the ingredient list on the label. A class action lawsuit has been filed in another state because a group of consumers believes that they purchased a product that was supposed to have all-natural ingredients. They say not only is that a false statement but the products in question caused personal injury.  

Fatal personal injury was tragic result of recent Florida crash

There are times when driving along scenic Florida roadways can be a pleasant way to spend a day. However, if a negligent or reckless driver is nearby, an otherwise uneventful trip can quickly turn tragic. A recent Tuesday in Lakeland was just such a day when not one personal injury but several fatal ones occurred in a multiple vehicle accident.  

Deputy treated for minor personal injury, other driver dead

An accident recently occurred in Florida that has prompt a sheriff's investigation. That's because it involved a 30-year-old deputy from the department. He suffered personal injury in the collision, though his injuries were listed as minor when he was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The other person involved happened to be the brother of the Dodgers former baseball coach, Tommy Lasorda.

Overcorrection common problem in many personal injury accidents

Many Florida motorists, especially those who are inexperienced drivers, run into problems on the road if they overcorrect their steering after veering too close to the shoulder of the road. While not entirely uncommon, this type of erratic maneuver can cause serious collisions. In fact, that seems to be what happened in a recent multi-vehicle tragedy.

Man dies after suffering personal injury in car accident

Car crashes that result in the death of a young person may affect the person's family and friends as well as the community in which he or she lived. After a serious crash in Florida that resulted in several individuals suffering from personal injury, family members and friends have set up a GoFundMe page to help take care of the medical costs and other bills caused by the crash. The authorities are also asking any others with information about the crash to contact them. 

Daycare fails to explain the severity of child's personal injury

There are parents all across the country who trust daycare centers with their children every day. These facilities are expected to care for these children and treat any injuries that may occur while they are there. Most of the time, children are unlikely to suffer serious injuries while in the care of these centers, but if they are, then parents usually expect appropriate actions to be taken by the center staff. One Florida mother is furious with the center that was in charge of her daughter's care after the center staff failed to inform her of the full extent of her child's personal injury and failed to have the injury properly treated. 

Driver fatigue suspected in crash resulting in personal injury

There are a wide variety of hazards on the road that may cause an accident. Some of these accidents have an outside cause, such as poor weather conditions, and others are caused by other drivers. Even a small mistake can cause a serious crash. For example, many people are guilty of driving while tired. Often, drivers are able to stay awake and complete their trips with few problems, but sometimes, the driver is overwhelmed by his or her exhaustion, which can result in a crash causing personal injury, as was the case in Florida. 

A life jacket may help to prevent personal injury

Boating is a popular activity in Florida among both locals and tourists. Unfortunately, many people neglect to take proper safety precautions, and accidents can occur. These accidents can often result in the personal injury or death of one or more people. Authorities are encouraging boaters to wear life jackets and take safety courses in order to prevent injuries and fatalities. 

Street racing accident results in personal injury and fatality

Fast cars and drag racing are appealing to many people across the nation. Many people limit their interest in this dangerous activity to movies, television shows and video games. However, some people allow their interest in street racing to take a dangerous turn by taking part in a real race. These races are illegal in many places across the United States, including in Florida, and a race gone wrong can potentially result in serious personal injury or even death. 

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.
