Who is entitled to compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit?

One of the only guarantees in life is that at some point in time everyone dies. This is not a subject that is easy to talk about and even harder to deal with when loved one's pass away. It can be difficult no matter how the loved one passed. It can be a little bit easier to handle though when the loved one dies at an old age and the family had some time to prepare mentally and emotionally that it was going to happen. However, when the death happens unexpectedly it can be very difficult to handle.

Cars must yield to pedestrians crossing roads at intersections

The most popular mode of transportation in Florida may be one's own vehicle, but there are many people out walking to their destinations every day. Also, even those who do drive to their destination may still need to walk from where they parked to the place they are actually going. For the most part these pedestrians can walk on the designated sidewalks in order to stay safe from the vehicles on the road. However, people do need to cross roads which means that they must interact with the vehicles on the roads.

Who is liable for injury from a defective product?

People purchase various products in Florida every day. There are many different products and uses for the products. People expect that if they purchase a product for a particular purpose that the product will work correctly and help them complete certain projects. Unfortunately products do not always work correctly though. Sometimes the product can actually cause significant injuries to the person using it, if they do not work properly.

Property owners' liability for injuries depends on who is injured

There are many different types of property owners in Florida. Some just own a single family home, some are store owners, some are farmers, some provide entertainment, some own restaurants and there are many other types of owners. While the purpose of the land varies depending on the owner, one thing is similar though, if someone is injured on the property, they may be liable to compensate the victim through a personal injury lawsuit.

When store owners are liable for slip and fall accidents

More and more people in Florida are shopping online from the comfort of their homes. This may be the trend, but many people still go to actual physical stores every day. People need to go to grocery stores, clothing and department stores, big box stores, local markets and many other locations. When they enter into these various stores the expectation is that they will go in, buy what they would like to buy and leave.

Legal options help protect victims of pedestrian accident

Unfortunately, pedestrians can be unexpectedly injured in the blink of an eye while going about their daily lives. A pedestrian accident can be caused by an inattentive, distracted or drunk driver and can result in serious damages and harm to victims. Pedestrian accident victims can face challenging physical recovery processes and staggering medical bills when injured by a negligent driver while they are doing something as simple as running daily errands.

Keeping records following a car accident is important

It is important to keep careful records following a car accident. The records may be helpful if the victim decides later to bring a claim for damages against the negligent driver responsible for the accident. Recording what happened right after the car accident can help create an accurate record of events. It is important, of course, to ensure safety and that any necessary medical treatment is received prior to recording events but a careful record should be made as soon as possible.

Personal injury legal protections for pedestrians

Pedestrian accidents can cause catastrophic injuries and harm because of the unprotected nature of pedestrian-accident victims who are vulnerable to inattentive and careless drivers on the roadways. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 5,000 pedestrian victims die annually in fatal pedestrian accidents. During 2012, 76,000 pedestrians were injured in pedestrian accidents.

Unqualified truck drivers may be liable to injured victims

Truck accidents can be catastrophic for victims and may result in catastrophic injuries. Unfortunately, unsuspecting passenger vehicle drivers and passengers may be sharing the road with unqualified truck drivers. Unqualified truck drivers can present dangers and hazards for those they share the roadways with. An unqualified truck driver can cause serious harm to victims of a truck accident.

Help following a boating accident

Boating accidents can cause serious injuries and harm and put an end to the fun. When victims have been injured on the water by a negligent operator of a boat or jet ski, the negligent operator may be liable for the injuries and harm suffered by the victim. Victims of boating accidents may suffer damages including medical expenses, lost wages and emotional trauma associated with an unexpected boating accident.
