Insurance companies are there to assist you when you need them, right? That’s why people pay insurance premiums, right? As our Palm Beach and Broward County personal injury lawyers know, that isn’t always the case; sometimes, insurance companies simply refuse to pay claims, as was highlighted in the case of Hennessy v. Allstate Insurance Company, which just recently settled.
The case stemmed from an auto accident in Philadelphia in which the victim had to have one of his legs amputated. Allstate refused to pay the $250,000 that the insured, negligent driver’s policy afforded, and, as a result, the plaintiff …

A crash in Boynton Beach, Florida (down the street from our office) on Sunday has left three people dead, roadways closed off to traffic, and the Palm Beach community scarred by the tragic accident, which highlights the true dangers of reckless driving.
According to the initial reports from witnesses and others at the scene, the driver of a silver Ford was speeding north on Military Trail near Woolbright Road early Sunday afternoon, when he lost control of his car, hit an Acura head-on, and went flying over the roadway before igniting and becoming engulfed in flames. By the time …

Your time and your lawyer’s time is valuable, and bringing certain items, documents and photos to your first meeting with your lawyer will help the process. Note, it is fine to go to your first meeting if you don’t have some of these items, but it is important to gather the information you do have. Car crashes are traumatizing and can leave you dealing with injuries and pain for years or even decades. Providing information and documents at the initial meeting can help your claim and will give you a better chance of getting fair and reasonable compensation for your …

When somebody passes away due to the willful, reckless or negligent actions of another, their survivors may be able to file what is called a “wrongful death” lawsuit against the responsible parties in an effort to obtain compensation for monetary damages, loss of companionship, pain and suffering, etc. Our personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know that these types of lawsuits allow survivors to seek compensation for the many ways in which they’ve been harmed due to the wrongful death of their loved one.
In the State of Florida, the rules that govern who can …

Our law practice is based out of South Florida, where many communities and businesses are nestled right along I-95 and the Florida Turnpike. Because of their proximity to I-95 and the Turnpike, most Floridians rely on these highways as efficient means by which to commute to and from work, social gatherings, familial responsibilities, etc.
However, trucking companies also take advantage of I-95 and the Turnpike, and, as a result, small cars, sedans and SUVs often have to share the road with enormous 18-wheelers, making driving on these highways both nerve-wracking and dangerous. Being nervous around a large, commercial truck is …

Almost everyone today carries a cell phone, and many people snap photos with their phone all day long. But surprisingly, many people forget to take photos or videos at the exact moment they could be extremely helpful – when you or someone else has been in an accident.
If you’re ever in a car crash, for instance, a simple cell phone can be the key to making sure you’re properly compensated for any damage or injury.
Of course, the first priority in a crash is to attend to anyone who might be hurt. But as soon as it’s safe to …

A herniated disc injury to your spine often occurs in an automobile accident. The stress put on the spinal column in a car collision can cause a piece of the spinal structure (called a disk) that separates your back bones or vertebrae, to move out of place. These injuries are sometimes also called slipped or ruptured disks. These disk structures can push out into the spinal channel and press against spinal nerves, producing severe back, neck, leg pain and possible hand pain. If you experience a sharp pain in the back, leg, hand or foot after an accident you should …

According to a new report published by the American Academy of Pediatrics, early school starting times are having a truly harmful effect on the health and well being of students in this country, and that is causing a great many auto accidents on our roads and highways.
The damning report pointed to a causal relationship between early school starting times and decreased time for teenagers to sleep; the result for the teens, according to the medical experts, is dangerous “drowsy driving,” anti-social behavior and depressed moods. As we know, the notion that teenagers indulge in somewhat erratic sleeping patterns …

Our personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg handle all types of personal injury cases, although most of our work involves representing individuals who have been injured in a car accident caused by the negligence of another. As we know, drivers make mistakes such as fidgeting with the radio, looking into the backseat, driving too quickly, following too closely, etc., all of which increase the likelihood of a car accident.
The case of Pinkerton v. Verizon stemmed from a horrific 2012 accident in Philadelphia, in which a woman suffered traumatic brain and spinal injuries after her …

They say that time waits for no one. As our personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know, neither does justice.
Let’s clarify that: if you’ve been injured due to the wrongdoing of another, you only have a certain amount of time during which you can file a legal claim seeking compensation for damages. After that window of time expires, even if you suffered a serious, life-long injury that will plague you for the rest of your life, you’re pretty much out of luck in terms of seeking compensation from the negligent party. The rules that …
