Car seats need more protection than Florida law

Children are the most precious cargo on America's roads. Parents always observe extra precautions on a grocery run, pickup after practice or road trip with a child on board. Since other drivers cannot be relied upon to be careful, parents have a duty to protect children against car accidents.

When is an uncontested divorce the right choice?

The decision to end a marriage in divorce is a difficult, emotionally charged decision for most Florida couples that choose to take this step. However, simply deciding to divorce is not the only decision that you must make. Will the divorce be contested or uncontested? Is it possible to avoid litigation completely? How can we get through this process as quickly as possible?

Suffer a pedestrian injury? Don't walk away from compensation

Every year, thousands of individuals die as the result of injuries suffered in pedestrian accidents. Many times, these accidents are completely preventable and happen as the result of negligent, reckless and otherwise inexcusable actions committed by drivers. If you were hurt or lost a loved one in this type of motor vehicle accident, you have legal options available to you.

Semi rollover crashes in Florida are a significant danger

Trucks are the lifeblood of Florida's trade and shipping, and thousands of trucks line the state's highways and roads every day. Drivers can make mistakes or cause hazards on the road, and a recent pair of rollover crashes call attention to a potentially dangerous situation for surrounding vehicles.

Motorcycle accidents: common injuries and damages available

My loved one died in an accident. Do I have grounds for a civil claim?

When someone causes the wrongful death of another person, the surviving family members may seek financial compensation for various losses and damages. However, not every fatal accident merits legal action, and while you may be grieving the unexpected loss of a loved one, you may also want to know if you have grounds to move forward with a civil claim.

Florida appellate ruling reversed motorcycle crash ruling

Motorcycles are one of the most exciting ways to enjoy the American road, and Florida leads the country in motorcycle riders and opportunities for good rides. The spirit of the chase can get out of hand, and a legal battle over the circumstances of one ride continues to unfold in a Florida court.

Florida law clarified for slip-and-fall injuries

It is rarely the most terrifying thing a person can imagine, but injury while running errands is a common cause of hospital admissions in Florida as well as elsewhere in the United States. If you or a loved one has been hurt by dangerous areas in local businesses, know your rights on claiming compensation.

What can I include in my prenuptial agreement?

When a Florida couple is planning to marry, the last thing that they want to think about is the possibility of the marriage ending in divorce one day.
