Boat crash results in personal injury and death

Boating is a popular activity amongst both locals and tourists in Florida. It isn't unusual for boaters to drink and eat while floating on the water, but many may not realize that attempting to drive a boat after consuming alcohol can be just as dangerous as driving a car while intoxicated. Recently, there was a boat crash that resulted in the fatal personal injury of two individuals. 

Hit-and-run crash causes personal injury and death

Hit-and-run accidents are among many drivers' nightmares. Being involved in an accident can be traumatizing, even more so if the driver or a passenger suffered a personal injury. However, knowing that others involved chose to flee can, for some, make everything worse. Police in Florida are currently asking anyone with information about a hit-and-run crash that occurred on Feb. 25 to contact their office. 

Wrong-way collision results in personal injury, fatalities

Even though Florida is known as the Sunshine State, like other states at this time of year, it can get dark very quickly. Many times, auto accidents can be avoided if drivers are reasonably careful and their vehicles are functioning properly. Unfortunately, two young women were killed and two others each suffered a personal injury in a crash that involved a vehicle with possibly malfunctioning headlights. 

Fatal personal injury may spark major changes

Graduation for many people is a much anticipated and celebrated time. Many recent graduates, both high school and college, go out and celebrate, occasionally in grand fashion. Some go out with friends or with family to do something fun or relaxing. Unfortunately, sometimes, these activities can go awry. Last summer, a graduate of the University of Miami in Florida suffered a fatal personal injury in an air-boating accident the day after her graduation, and her death could spark major changes to airboating regulations.

Bryant & Higby lead lawsuit against drug manufacturers

As the war rages against opioid addiction and its related crimes and consequences, a new battle plan has emerged, taking aim at the manufacturers of highly addictive drugs like OxyContin. Lawsuits across the country allege that pharmaceutical companies knew of the dangerously addictive potential in these drugs, yet they did not warn the medical community. In a recent move unanimously approved by the Bay County Commissioners, our law firm, Bryant and Higby Attorneys at Law has been tapped to represent this Florida County in its own lawsuit.

Accident causes death and severe personal injury

During the holiday season, families travel extensively. Some only travel a few minutes down the road, and others travel across the country. Of course, the extra drivers on the road usually mean that there is a higher risk of traffic accidents. Florida Highway Patrol responded to a call last weekend which resulted in not only the deaths of two individuals, but the personal injury of several others. 

Drag race results in the personal injury of multiple individuals

Drag racing is often glamorized in movies and on TV. Cars and trucks seem to fly down empty roadways with professional precision, but reality is rarely as neat. A drag race gone wrong in Florida resulted in the personal injury of multiple individuals who were not directly involved in the race.

Florida crash results in severe personal injury and one fatality

For many teenagers in Florida, earning their driver's license for the first time is a right of passage, one of the first major steps towards freedom and independence. However, most learn soon after that the theory is much different than the practical experience. They learn that there is a reason behind every traffic law they have had to learn. Unfortunately, some do not realize this quickly enough, and their negligent actions may result in personal injury or even death.

Airboat crash results in fatal personal injury

There are a wide variety of activities for both locals and tourists to participate in down in Florida. However, many people may forget to consider that some of these things can be dangerous. It is possible for a person to suffer a severe personal injury while participating in one of these activities.
