Wrongful death claim may follow fatal boating accident

Operating a boat under the influence of alcohol is as unlawful as driving a car while impaired. A 34-year-old Florida man has to face the consequences of alleged drunk boating after an accident that killed another boat operator in Sept. 2015. He was arrested on manslaughter charges on a recent Wednesday afternoon, and he might also have to face a wrongful death claim in a civil court.

Which typical incidents lead to wrongful death lawsuits?

Florida residents who have lost loved ones as the result of another party's negligence -- intentional or unintentional -- may have questions about pursuing recovery of financial and emotional damages. Many circumstances offer grounds for filing wrongful death lawsuits, and some are more common than others. Fatal car accidents and commercial vehicle crashes often lead to such lawsuits, and often, other drivers, companies, auto manufacturers and other entities named as defendants.

Workers' compensation claims may follow on-the-job fatalities

Florida business owners must protect their employees from harm on duty. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration prescribes strict safety regulations with which employers must comply. Many workers' compensation benefits claims are filed every year after injuries are caused by the failure of employers to provide safe work environments.

Why was your Social Security Disability Insurance claim denied?

When a Florida resident learns that his or her claim for disability benefits was rejected, there may be several questions about the reason for the denial. Many people rely on Social Security Disability Insurance after becoming disabled, and the rejection of an application for benefits may be devastating. While they may think they made errors in their applications, almost every rejection occurs because the information provided did not justify the applicant's claim of disability.

Workers' compensation claim may follow death of apprentice

One of the many safety hazards to which construction workers are exposed is elevation equipment such as scissor lifts and forklifts. The risk of using such a vehicle is exacerbated if the operator is not adequately trained or qualified to drive it, and many workers' compensation claims for death benefits claims follow such safety violations. This danger was underscored recently when a worker died a tragic death at a construction site in Florida.
