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.

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.
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.
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.

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.

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.

In Florida, a young man suffered a personal injury after being hit by a driver who was distracted by his cellphone.
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.

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.
