Florida deputy's death underscores 18-wheeler dangers

As the state's population booms and national demand for its products increases, tractor-trailers that haul the goods needed to meet the demands of businesses and consumers are an increasingly frequent sight on Florida's highways. Big rigs are not necessarily inherently dangerous, but when something goes wrong and sends one of these commercial vehicles into traffic, the outcome is often an unhappy one. Truck accidents are becoming an all-to-frequent problem in Florida.

Recognize warning signs of possible nursing abuse

As you researched various nursing homes in your area, you likely hoped to find just the right place where your aging mother or father would feel comfortable and well cared for in his or her golden years. If you live nearby, you may have felt somewhat at ease that at least you'd be able to visit often and check in to see how things are going.

Texting while driving is illegal, but distracted driving is not?

In Florida, it is illegal to text, email or instant message while driving - anything that requires entering or reading multiple characters on a handheld electronic device. Violation of the law is considered a non-criminal traffic infraction that is punishable by a fine. Law enforcement officers cannot stop a driver for suspected texting. Rather, it is a secondary offense for which a driver can be ticketed only if stopped for another violation, such as speeding or running a stoplight.

Spate of small plane crashes darkens Sunshine State's skies

In the first several weeks of 2018, a handful of folks have dies in several small plane crashes across Florida, including a sheriff in the Keys, a couple off Bonita Springs, and a man flying an experimental aircraft near the Carabelle airport. While it can be difficult to ascertain the causes of an aviation accident at first blush, a thorough investigation can help get to the bottom of the matter and indicate what - or who - precisely is to blame for the tragedy.

Sobering car accident statistics in the Sunshine State

More than 16 million drivers occupy the roads, streets and highways in Florida. According to Florida's Integrated Report Exchange System (FIRES), there were nearly 400,000 auto accidents in the Sunshine State last year. These crashes resulted in almost a quarter million injuries and more than 2,900 deaths. Statistics such as these are sobering: You never know what you will encounter when you put the keys in the ignition and pull out of your driveway.

Brain injuries implicated in many wrongful death cases

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are implicated in almost a third of all deaths. Even if a TBI is not immediately fatal, it can certainly be life-altering. Yet, in many cases, such injuries may not present themselves right away and go undetected for a matter of days or in some cases, weeks. Until a brain injury heals, a secondary trauma to the head can be fatal.

The vulnerability of motorcycle riders to spinal cord injuries

As a motorcycle rider, you are more than likely acutely aware of the fact that you could suffer severe injuries if involved in a crash. As other cars pass you, or you pass other motor vehicles, you may be keenly aware of their size and potential for danger. One wrong move by one of those vehicles, and you could find yourself lying on the street and badly injured.
