Workplace fatalities on the rise in Florida, rest of nation

A report that the AFL-CIO released in April reveals that workplace fatalities jumped significantly in 2016, the most recent year for which data is available. That year, 5,190 people died while working at their jobs, compared with 4,836 worker deaths in 2015 - an increase of more than 5 percent. In Florida, alone, there were 309 wrongful deaths in the workplace.

Keyless ignitions killing Florida residents

In Florida - and across the United States - more than two dozen people have died and more have become ill due to carbon dioxide poisoning from vehicles equipped with keyless ignitions.

The preventable tragedies that have resulted from the design of these vehicles are the subject of several wrongful death and product liability suits in many jurisdictions.

Distracted driving continuing peril on Florida roads

April was Distracted Driving Awareness Month in Florida and across the United States. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, nearly 50,000 car accidents in 2017 involved a driver who was in some way distracted from his or her driving duties. Although a lot of media and legislative attention focuses on the use of the electronic devices or texting while driving, distracted driving is anything that diverts a driver's attention from the safe operation of a vehicle.

Working on behalf of brain injury victims in Florida

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be life-altering - or life-ending. If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI, you know this. You also know that treatment for a TBI can be a long, and in some cases lifelong, process. Prolonged treatment means mounting medical expenses that become increasingly difficult to cover. However, if you or a loved one suffered a TBI as the result of an accident in Florida, compensation may be available to you.
