Can a lifeguard be sued for personal injury or wrongful death?

While Florida beaches are packed with people who enjoy the sun, lifeguards are responsible for preventing drownings. As with others whose jobs require them to be specially trained to save lives and treat injuries, lifeguards are held to a high standard of care. When a lifeguard causes personal injury or fails to prevent an injury, the victim might have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Age-related factors that could lead to personal injury claims

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says more than 36 million senior citizens are licensed to drive, many of them in Florida.

Recognizing that it is time to give up driving is never easy because no one wants to become dependent on others to drive them where they need to be.

Personal injury: Children overcome by illness at summer camp

When parents in Florida send their children to summer camp, they expect excellent care that will protect their health and safety.

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services reports that it has launched an investigation of the recent incident in which a roller coaster derailed in Daytona Beach.

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

With all the vehicles traveling on Florida roads, it is not surprising that so many collisions occur. Many of them result from negligent driving, often leaving innocent passengers and/or others suffering severe personal injury. This was the case in a recent auto accident in Jefferson County.

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. A victim might not readily realize the severity of the bite, and the subsequent medical expenses and other losses could lead to a personal injury lawsuit. The success of such a claim may depend mainly on the information and evidence gathered immediately after the incident.

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. A personal injury suffered on the water is not uncommon, and in many cases, boating or jet ski accidents are caused by the negligence of other boat operators.
