Settlements in car accident cases require a lot of thought

Car accident cases can go to court or they can be resolved through a settlement. Some people opt to pursue a settlement because this can put them more in control over what they get. If you are considering a car accident settlement, think about each point that is contained in the agreement.

Hold the driver who killed your loved one accountable in court

Hearing the news that your loved one was killed in a fatal car accident is a shock that most people hope they never have to experience. If you are one of the unfortunate ones who has to experience this horror, you will likely go through a range of emotions. Once you stop and think about what happened, you might decide that you don't want the person who struck your loved one to get away with it.

Car accident injury claims hinge on negligence

When you are injured in a car accident, you might decide to seek compensation. The claim for compensation hinges on a few points but one of the most important is negligence. Your case will need to show that the negligence of the defendant caused the accident that led to the injuries for which you suffered damages.

Why are car accidents such a pain in the neck?

A lot of aches and pains usually become evident in the days following a car accident. In some cases, the aches and pains that occur in the days after the accident might seem to settle in your neck. If that is the case, you might be suffering from whiplash, which is an accident commonly associated with car crashes.

Drunk driving accidents in Florida

Despite all of the known dangers and thousands of deaths each year, drunk driving remains an unfortunate reality in today's society. Federal laws against those over 21 driving with a blood-alcohol level of more than .08 and a recent increase in the seriousness of the penalties associated with drunk driving have helped, but these consequences often come too little too late for those killed or injured in these types of accidents.

Car accidents in Florida: an advocate’s role

Every automobile accident, even a fender bender, comes with challenges for the parties involved. Florida law requires every driver to be properly insured. Known as the Florida Financial Responsibility Law, it mandates that any person at fault in a crash causing injury and property damage must have full liability insurance coverage in effect when an accident happens. Minimum bodily injury and property damage limits are required, and personal injury limits for each person are established. On the surface, this would seem to make handling the aftermath of a collision fairly straightforward. Unfortunately, often that isn't the case.

Distracted driving and Florida law

As times have changed in recent years, if you are involved in any type of car accident, pedestrian knockdown, bus or truck collision, it's become commonplace to hear the query of whether or not the at-fault driver was distracted. But what exactly does that mean in Florida?

Liability for auto accidents complex when it comes to ride share

With the many factors influencing commute decisions for Florida workers, it's not surprising that many carpool on a day-to-day basis. The cost of gasoline is one of the most prominent; it has been for many years, and it isn't likely to change any time soon. Government encourages ridesharing by providing extra lanes for vehicles carrying more than the driver in some areas where congestion slows people down. But when one of these vehicles is involved in an accident on the way to or from work, is it considered to be a workplace injury?
