Personal injury: Teenage joyride in stolen car kills 2, injures 5

Teenage mischief turned into a horrific tragedy in Florida on a recent Thursday.

Should you file a personal injury claim after a moped crash?

Florida cities are typically filled with locals and tourists from all over the world, many of whom may not be familiar with traffic rules in Florida, and unfamiliar surroundings often cause distractions. Drivers of mopeds and scooters are as vulnerable as motorcycle riders and bicyclists. When they are involved in crashes, the circumstances that caused it typically put them in a motorist's blind spot, or even worse, a truck driver's blind spot. Many personal injury lawsuits follow such accidents.

No license, failure to yield said to cause personal injury to 2

Personal injury: Steps to take after a dog attack

Being bitten by a dog will naturally be a traumatizing experience for anyone in Florida, and knowing what to do under such circumstances is essential.

Personal injury claims can follow boating accidents

Many people in Florida know what they have to do if they are involved in an automobile accident. However, they may not be too sure of the steps to take when they are involved in a boating accident.

Personal injury lawsuits come in different types

All kinds of injuries and accidents lead to the staggering number of claims in civil lawsuits that are filed in Florida and other states annually.

Of all the different types of personal injury claims, product liability is one of the most common.

Personal injury: 1 in 4 fatal teenage crashes involves alcohol

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that over 3,500 teenagers died in auto crashes in 2016. Accordingly, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles held a week-long campaign earlier this month to promote safe teen driving. The aim was to get teens to commit to driving in a way that will keep themselves and their passengers safe from personal injury. Along with personal responsibility, the focus was on never starting the car before everybody is buckled up.

Personal Injury: Proving negligence can be challenging

Such personal injury claims can even arise from events in which harm was done to passengers of public transit systems and airlines.
