Boat Hitch Hazards http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/boat-hitch-hazards/ Florida’s lakes and the surrounding ocean waters make it a popular spot for boaters, but when residents and tourists fail to properly hitch their boats to their vehicles for road transportation, they pose a threat to other drivers on the road. In one recent case, the driver of a truck was towing his boat on a main road when he caused a traffic accident that left him and his passenger injured, and caused damage to another driver’s car, our Florida personal injury law firm reports.

Expert Testimony for the Defense http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/expert-testimony-for-the-defense/ In a recent ruling, the Florida Fourth District judges clarified when a plaintiff’s medical treatment should be evaluated at trial in a defense expert’s testimony, and when this testimony should be excluded, Florida car accident attorneys report. A professional medical testimony can be compelling, especially when presented in light of a recent examination, but these testimonies can be tailored to fit the defendant’s needs when necessary, and an unsuspecting jury can be swayed from the victim’s pain.

Pre-Existing Conditions in Car Accidents http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/pre-existing-conditions-in-car-accidents/ A pre-existing condition is often a sticking point in personal injury lawsuits after a car accident, usually because the at-fault driver and his insurance company will try to dodge the bullet, and claim that the car accident did not cause the victim’s pain and suffering.

Public Transportation and Personal Injury Cases http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/public-transportation-and-personal-injury-cases/ Using public transportation is a great way to save on gas and help reduce your carbon footprint on the environment. But when a city bus or subway is involved in an accident, the legal fallout can be quite complex because so many different parties can be involved—the people injured in an accident, the bus driver, and the company that is responsible for the vehicle. Determining the levels of responsibility and liability in an accident involving public transportation is difficult, because no two cases are the same, Florida car accident lawyers say.

Walmart Charged with Negligence in Truck Accident http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/walmart-charged-with-negligence-in-truck-accident/ When an accident occurs at the fault of a truck driver who works for a larger company, often the legal fallout places the blame not only at the feet of the individual driver, but at the company who hired him. In these cases, an employer can be labeled as negligent for hiring the individual, especially if the driver has a history of poor driving or traffic violations, or responsible for the driver’s actions as a representative of the company, personal injury lawyers in Fort Lauderdale say.

Compulsory Medical Exams in Florida http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/compulsory-medical-exams-in-florida/ When you are involved in a car accident, especially one caused by the negligence of another driver, your first priority should be to make sure that you have not suffered any serious injuries as a result. Personal injury attorneys in Fort Lauderdale recommend that you take a quick trip to your personal physician, or to a local UrgiCare or MedExpress, to ensure that you are safe and sound after an accident, and to investigate any lingering twinges, muscle aches, or residual pains. However, in Florida, a medical exam is not required to file a personal injury lawsuit against another driver, but it may cause issues during your trial.

Hit and run collisions can threaten pedestrians, bikers, and motorcyclists, and can be devastating in injury and cost for the victims.

Cargo Liability for Truck Accidents http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/cargo-liability-for-truck-accidents/ Big rigs and other large trucks pose a threat to other drivers on the highway, especially when they are traveling at high speeds or under unsafe conditions. A truck could easily crush a smaller vehicle in a collision, and the wide, long body can make visibility difficult for even the most experienced truck driver. But another risk that drivers face is the cargo carried by the truck, personal injury attorneys in Florida report.

Accidents Involving Permit Drivers http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/accidents-involving-permit-drivers/ In Florida, young drivers are given an opportunity to learn how to drive with a learner’s permit from the age of 15 to 17, before they graduate to a full driver’s license. The learner’s permit is designed as a restricted license, to allow the teen the chance to drive on the roads while still supervised by a licensed driver in terms of when they are driving and how many passengers they are carrying. Although there is no better way to learn than through practice, sometimes a young and inexperienced driver can cause a car accident while learning to drive, personal injury lawyers in Florida say.

Who is responsible for keeping large animals like horses and cows off the roads, and protecting drivers from potentially dangerous encounters on public roads?

Rented Vehicles and Responsibility http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/rented-vehicles-and-responsibility/  Every year, people from across the country travel to Florida, and that year-round tourism is a critical part of the state’s economy. Along with this tourism comes transportation, and there are several options available to visitors. Most people elect to rent a car during their trip, especially if they have flown down to Florida from another state, but personal injury attorneys in Florida remind that this option, while convenient, can result in tragedy due to the unfamiliarity of the visiting driver in a new state and a new car.

Responsibility Laws During Consignment http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/responsibility-laws-during-consignment/ Under the state’s dangerous instrumentality doctrine, in most cases, vehicle owners are held vicariously liable for the negligent actions of a third party driving the vehicle with permission, car accident attorneys in Fort Lauderdale say. This doctrine covers accident victims who may have been injured by a driver who does not have a vehicle, and therefore does not have insurance coverage, by splitting the responsibility between the driver and the vehicle owner and insurance policyholder.

Car Seat Safety http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/car-seat-safety/ Car seats protect our youngest and most vulnerable passengers from harm in the event of an accident or collision. Smaller bodies are much more likely to slip out of seat belts, or wiggle around in a seat, or fly forward on impact, and car seats are a safe, reliable way to ensure that your child is securely fastened no matter what happens on the road. Car accident attorneys in Fort Lauderdale report that, in most crashes, the risk of injury to a child passenger is largely mitigated by the correct usage of a car seat.

Florida, the No-Fault State http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/florida-the-no-fault-state/ In Florida, auto insurance laws often dictate the process and extent to which auto accidents are prosecuted, even in collisions that leave one or more of the involved parties at a loss, whether from injuries sustained or vehicle damage. Due to the state’s “no-fault” status, most car accidents do not even make it to court, personal injury lawyers in Fort Lauderdale say, and those that do must follow the state’s laws regarding time-frame and driver responsibility, and have specific options for restitution and settlement.

Medical Emergency Removes Liability in Car Accident http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/medical-emergency-removes-liability-in-car-accident/ Liability in a rear-end car accident is usually easy to assess as the fault of the second car. But according to car accident attorneys in Florida, these cases are not always as cut-and-dry as they seem, especially ones that involve unforeseen circumstances. In a recent case, an appeals court in Florida threw out an existing verdict, ruling instead that the driver, who had suffered a seizure while behind the wheel, was not at fault for the resulting collision. Medical emergencies while driving can remove the driver’s liability for an accident caused by inattention, especially in cases where the driver briefly loses consciousness or motor skills. This decision has highlighted how juries and judges determine fault and liability in accidents involving medical crises.

Texting Driver Rolls Car: http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/texting-driver-rolls-car/ Please insert excerpt info here.Distracted driving is always dangerous, not only for the driver who loses focus, but for anyone else in the vicinity as well—other drivers, pedestrians, and passengers—and one of the leading causes of distraction is the cell phone. Several states, including Florida, have passed laws that make it illegal for people to text, use downloaded applications, or make calls while driving, without using hands-free devices. While these laws are in effect, a recent crash involving a driver distracted by texting shows that the laws are not quite the deterrent they should be, personal injury attorneys in Fort Lauderdale say.

Over the next 15 to 20 years, according to data from the United States Census, nearly 30 percent of the state’s population will be over the age of 64, with many of that group over the age of 75. With the increase in older Floridians comes an increase in older licensed drivers, injury attorneys in Fort Lauderdale say, making it imperative that drivers, especially those over 60, stay safe on the roads.

New Bill Will Increase Penalties for Hit-and-Runs http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/new-bill-will-increase-penalties-for-hit-and-runs/ In Florida, legislators have introduced a new bill that would impose more severe penalties on drivers who flee the scene of an accident. The “Aaron Cohen Life Protection Act,” sponsored by Sen. Miguel Diaz de la Portilla, increases the minimum jail sentences for hit-and-run accidents in increments, corresponding with the accident’s degree of severity. Personal injury lawyers in Fort Lauderdale hope that the proposed measures will encourage Florida residents to drive safer, and, in the event of an accident, stay with the victims to call an ambulance, and offer medical help, insurance information, and restitution if necessary.

Bad Faith Claims http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/bad-faith-claims/ The U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida recently ruled that, according to Florida law, an insured driver can grant the rights to sue their insurance company to another person filing a bad faith claim, car accident lawyers in Fort Lauderdale say. In Tanaka v. GEICO, one of the most influential bad faith claim cases in the state, the Florida courts allowed the plaintiff, Ms. Tanaka, who was injured in the crash, to bring a bad faith action against GEICO Insurance Company after her vehicle was rear-ended by a GEICO-insured driver.

NHTSA 2012 Traffic Report Shows Increase in Traffic Fatalities http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/nhtsa-2012-traffic-report-shows-increase-in-traffic-fatalities/ More and more people are killed in vehicle accidents on the highway every year, according to a recent report from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Data from the 2012 Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) indicates that the highway death count increased to 33,561 last year, more than 1,000 more fatalities than last year. Although the report shows the first increase in fatalities in eight years, since 2005, Fort Lauderdale accident attorneys say that highway death totals are at an all time low, compared to the totals from the last several decades.

I-95 Collision Hazards for Commuters http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/i-95-collision-hazards-for-commuters/ Commuters on the Florida Interstate 95 know that a car accident can cause delays, back up traffic, and throw off travel time without warning. A high volume of cars and the sheer density of drivers are often blamed for the accidents that multiply across the highways to clog traffic and cause even more accidents. But according to car accident attorneys in Fort Lauderdale, regular commuters and highway drivers are involved in traffic incidents and accidents even on stretches of road that see much fewer cars every day.

PIP Injunction Removed http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/pip-injunction-removed/ The Florida First District Court of Appeals recently issued a ruling in favor of the Office of Insurance Regulation, and lifted the injunction that has stood in the way of enforcing several changes to the state’s personal injury protection (PIP) laws established earlier this year.

The Insurance Journal reports that 24 percent of Floridians currently do not carry car insurance.As I have written before, in Florida you are required to carry $10.000.00 in Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and $10,000 in Property Damage Coverage. PIP, regardless of fault, pays 80 percent of your medical bills after any deductible you have elected to take. My recommendation is to have a zero deductible policy and to carry at a minimum $10,000.00 in medical benefits coverage. PIP also follows you wherever you may go, whether into another party's car or as a pedestrian. If you are struck by a car as a pedestrian your PIP will follow you onto the road that day and will pay your bills. The $10,000.00 in Property Damage coverage pays if you are at fault for an accident and cause damage to someone else's property. While you are not required to carry Bodily Injury coverage, if you are found liable for an accident in Florida, you in all likelihood shall remain legally responsible to potentially to compensate the innocent driver or pedestrian for their damages.

I have previously written an article for the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel stressing the need to carry uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. In Florida as I have written in a previous blog entry many drivers are uninsured or fail to carry even the minimum "PIP" coverage as mandated by Florida law. While carrying uninsured motorist coverage is not mandated by Florida law, the sheer numbers of uninsured driver's make carrying that coverage an absolute necessity.

When purchasing a new car, families should do due diligence on the safety and crash worthiness of a prospective vehicle. As our family is the most important and most valuable item in our lives, no expense should be spared, and investigation time should not be an issue when it comes to such an important transaction. Act in haste, repent in leisure is a saying no more appropriate when it comes to evaluating a potential new family car.

With the price of air travel skyrocketting this year, more and more Americans are taking to the road this summer.

Statistically most travelers will be safe and will not be involved in a car accident. The Chances are likely, however, that during our lifetimes we will be involved in at least one car crash.As a result of the "Great Recession" people are cutting back on all expenses, including their car insurance coverages. If one or both drivers involved in a car accident in uninsured or underinsured very serious questions arise as to how to hold the at-fault driver financially responsible for the injuries and other damages of the innocent driver.

When To Settle Or Not to Settle Your Florida Car Accident Case http://www.southfloridapersonalinjurylawyers-new.com/blog/when-to-settle-or-not-to-settle-your-florida-car-accident-case/ One of the first questions that I am asked when meeting with a client who has been injured in a Florida car accident is when the case might settle and what it might settle for. My response is always the same. As a doctor can not diagnose a patients condition without a series of diagnostic tests so an attorney can not value a case without seeing the totality of all the evidence in the case. I always counsel a client that no attorney would ever give a dollar value of the case an initial meeting as their is no way that he or she would have sufficient information at their disposal to make that determination.
