There are varying degrees of justice and differing accounts of what can be defined as “justice.” In the legal system, justice is often equated to fairness. In a personal injury case, specifically, we can understand justice to be when the negligent, damage-causing party pays (figuratively and literally) for the wrong they have done (the damage they have caused the victim). While no amount of money can counteract the loss of mobility, enjoyment of life or in some cases a loved one, compensation can help the healing process in that it can assist the victims in their recovery by giving them …Read More
At the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg, we hear about a great many “but what if…” questions, so we decided to, here in a blog, answer some common ones that you, a loved one, or a friend may have. These questions—and they are surely not a comprehensive list—are born from curiosity relating to the accident and sometimes fear in the aftermath of the accident.
But what if they didn’t mean to hit me with their car?
This is a question that people ask very often. Nobody (with the exception of a few wackos out there) means to hit …Read More
First, let’s discuss the award. Just this past week, a military veteran received an award following his suing the Department of Veterans Affairs (the VA). The lawsuit dealt with issues far beyond the scope of one service member. The plaintiff in the case sued the VA for its mishandling of his issues relating to his diagnosed Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD is a type of anxiety disorder that typically occurs after one has experienced or seen a traumatic event that often encompasses the threat or possibility of death or serious injury. Many military veterans suffer from PTSD, and the VA …Read More
Here at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg, the majority of the cases we see stem from auto accidents. Our clients are often times injured due to the negligence of others—and the injures they suffer aren’t just sprained wrists and black and blues. Because of negligent driving, some of our clients have been forced to live for the rest of their lives in pain, in wheelchairs, and in fear of something as simple as driving to the grocery store.
In this blog, we are going to look at some of the top causes of auto accidents. With knowledge …Read More
One need only look at the phrase “personal injury law” to understand what this field of law encompasses—it has to do with the legal dimensions of instances in which you, personal (either bodily or otherwise) suffered injury (either physical or otherwise). These types of injury might involve, but are certainly not limited to, financial losses due to misleading advertising, or physical injuries due to the negligent driving of another. In order to be held accountable for causing injury to you, the person does not need to be involved in criminal proceedings. That is to say, they don’t have to be …Read More
Various products, ranging from automobiles and air conditioners to cell phones and cellophane, go through the process of a recall, either by way of a government agency direction or a corporate decision. One of the most important governing bodies in relation to consumer product safety is named, for obvious reasons, the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission, referred to as “CPSC ” for short. The CPSC recently released a report on product safety issues that has evaluated household product-related deaths in the U.S. over the past decade.
According to the report, one child dies roughly every two weeks when a …Read More
Child Safety Hazards Lurking Around the House By guest contributor, Seattle personal injury attorney Matthew D. Dubin
The tragic, high-profile story of a Utah toddler who died after falling into a top-loading washing machine has shined a spotlight on the issue of child safety in the home. The boy’s mother left him for just a few minutes, but that was enough time for him to climb up onto the washer, fall in, and drown.
Sadly, this story isn’t unique; there are reports of other children who have died in similar accidents over the years. In addition to laundry room hazards, there are other potential safety issues in the average American home, any one of which could result …Read More

In this blog, we’re going to discuss some facets of personal injury law related to dog bite liability (mostly pertaining to Florida). In Florida, there is what’s known as “strict liability” with dog bites. When it comes to man’s best friend, some of the most fondly recalled memories include playing fetch, going on walks and watching your canine companion amuse him/herself with a dog bone. Unfortunately, these examples don’t compose the entirety of human relations with dogs. Sometimes dogs act out and severely—or fatally—injure their human victim. It’s important to know about dog bite laws, especially in Florida; be aware …Read More
While most personal injury law issues come in the form of an auto accident or a grocery store slip and fall, there are also other aspects of the legal field that sometimes include the most helpless of victims. Nursing home neglect—the neglect of patients by their supposed caretakers—is a major problem in this country (and especially in Florida, where over 17% of the state population is composed of senior citizens). As the Baby Boomers enter prime retirement age and beyond, the nation’s nursing homes can expect more and more patients entering their doors. Furthermore, advances in technology and medicine are keeping …Read More
