Myths and motorcycles: a dangerous combination

With Daytona Bike Week for 2019 arriving this March, motorcycles will be in the news. Riders from all over the United States descend on Daytona Beach for the week-long celebration. Unfortunately, some of the news may not be good. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that Florida has more motorcycle injuries and fatalities than any other state in America.  

Who could be liable for personal injury in rollover crashes?

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, most fatal rollover crashes in Florida and other states are single-vehicle wrecks. While driver negligence might play a primary roll in many rollovers, third parties could be responsible for personal injury or wrongful death that result. Other causes for rollovers could include vehicle malfunctions or defects, road conditions, unsafe work zones or the actions of other drivers, even if they are not involved in collisions.

Is my neighbor responsible if my child gets hurt on his property?

Most people think about other people when the term “neighborhood nuisance” comes to mind. However, there is a different kind of nuisance in legal terms, which holds a property owner responsible for not safeguarding dangerous features from children. These are attractive nuisances. If you have never heard about an attractive nuisance, you may want to learn how it pertains to Florida homeowners.

Lime might face personal injury claim after catastrophic injuries

Motorized e-scooters have provided people across the country with easier commutes, including in Florida. Sadly, many safety problems exist, and reports by the Fort Lauderdale Fire rescue indicate that 40 e-scooter-related accidents have been reported, and 31 of those led to personal injury requiring hospitalizations. One incident left the victim in a persistent vegetative state, and her mother has now announced her intention to file a lawsuit against Lime, which was the provider of the scooter that was involved in this accident.

Workers' compensation: I-4 Ultimate project claims fourth life

The I-4 Ultimate transportation project in Florida claimed its fourth life on a recent Monday. The surviving family members of the victim will likely pursue financial relief through the state-regulated workers' compensation system. All construction activities were suspended after the tragic incident to allow investigators to document the cause of the accident.

Gathering all the evidence after a personal injury is crucial

A report about a court case against Walt Disney Parks and Resorts U.S. that was heard in a Florida court recently underscores the need for anyone who suffers an injury due to a property owner's negligence to gather as much evidence as possible. A woman from another state filed a personal injury claim against the establishment, alleging a food cart rolled over her foot at the restaurant while she was a visitor there in 2013. However, it appears the plaintiff failed to recognize the severity of the injury at first and gathered no evidence.
