Several considerations are present for dog bite cases

Personal injury cases can encompass a variety of injuries and accidents. One injury that some people may not think about very often is a dog bite. If you suffered a dog bite by a pet dog, you will likely need medical care. That medical care can turn costly, so you might opt to seek compensation for the bite.

Don't let injuries while traveling go unchecked

We recently discussed some tips that can help to keep you safe as you travel. Whether you are a Florida resident who is traveling within the state or a visitor from another state, you have the right to remain safe as you travel. Even if you are very careful and follow the tips we gave you in our previous blog post, there is a chance that the actions of another person will cause you to be involved in an accident that leads to injury.

Common injuries while traveling

The World Health Organization states that injuries are a leading cause of traveler deaths, but they are also usually preventable with a proper amount of care on the part of travelers and providers. Road and traffic injuries are the top cause of injury and fatalities for travelers, but other common injuries and deaths are related to drowning, air accidents, terrorist activity and drug use. According to WHO statistics, both homicide and suicide are top three causes of death among U.S. travelers throughout the world.

Spinal cord injuries are extremely serious

Spinal cord injuries are one of the most serious types of injuries you can suffer as the result of an accident. The spinal cord is responsible for relaying messages between the brain and the body, and this means that an injured spinal cord can result in everything from uncontrollable shaking to paralysis. Because spinal cord injuries are so serious, it's critical that you understand the full extent of your injuries and the effect they have on your life now and in the future.

What is a guardian ad litem and why is one needed?

In legal terms, the word guardian is used to define someone who is legally appointed or is entitled to care for and manage the person and property of another. Many people are familiar with the term when talking about appointing a guardian for one's children in a will for example. There are times when a guardian is needed long-term because an adult is not mentally capable of making decisions or responsibly caring for his or her own needs.

What Florida court has jurisdiction over personal injury cases?

Hopefully, most Florida residents will never have to worry about what court case will be heard where in the state's judicial system. But at the same time, having a basic understanding of the legal system and legal options for personal injury cases can help alleviate any apprehension if the opposite situation arises.

Prescription drug litigation: holding drug companies accountable

There are endless types of personal injury claims adjudicated by Florida courts and settled without trial with insurance companies. Every day, negotiations are taking place somewhere between recalcitrant agents and strong advocates representing individuals who have suffered harm through another's negligence, wrongdoing, accidental action or carelessness. Folks seeking compensation for an injury can become overwhelmed, even when evidence is clearly on their side.

How important is documentation in a personal injury case?

In any legal matter, documentation is crucial. Even seemingly unimportant information at the time can be the difference between a judgment being granted or denied. As a general rule, everything that happens after an accident should be recorded as best as possible through notes, photographs and other applicable methods. This is important even if the injury appears to be minor at first. When an accident occurs, the body's adrenaline kicks in, and that can block pain receptors and lead victims to believe they are fine when they really aren't.
