Our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know that while it’s always important to be cautious of drunk drivers, it’s especially critical to be watchful and alert while traveling this weekend, as it is Memorial Day Weekend.
Originally intended to be a time during which we remember and thank those who have fought for our freedoms, Memorial Day Weekend has largely become a celebratory, vacation-type weekend, filled with friends, family, BBQ’s and beer. While getting together with loved ones is a good thing, the mix of alcohol consumption and travel during this weekend …

Our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know that one of the most common problems we encounter in handling cases stemming from car accidents, slip & falls, medical malpractice, etc., has to do with timing – in other words, people waiting too long to contact a personal injury lawyer after they’ve been injured due to the negligence of another.
Why is it so important to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after an accident? Quickly getting in touch with a personal injury lawyer will give you the benefit of experience …

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has long been gravely concerned with commuter safety, but their research and campaigns regarding distracted pedestrians have been fairly limited. Until now, that is.
Our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers have written extensively on the issue of distracted driving, specifically how drivers who are texting, fidgeting with the radio, drinking from a bottle, cup or mug, etc., while behind the wheel of a car are putting themselves and their fellow travelers in harm’s way. Recently, the FDOT has started to raise awareness about the “perils of distracted walking” as …

You may know something about a new product slated to hit the consumer market this summer called Palcohol, which is alcohol in powder form. That said, know this: Florida is working its way toward a bill that would make that product illegal in the Sunshine State.
The product’s website, which you can access here, says the company behind Palcohol expects to start selling the product, which has recently been given approval by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, this summer. Before we explore its dangers and impending legal battles, let’s clarify what it is: Palcohol is powdered …

Over the weekend, as our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know, a terrible car crash in Martin County caused three deaths and 9 injuries.
According to Florida Highway Patrol, a Ford Expedition, which was carrying 12 people – seven children and five adults – was driving north on Florida’s Turnpike at approximately 4:45 PM on Saturday, when, suddenly, the vehicle experienced a left rear tire tread separation. The driver of the vehicle, a 25 year old, consequently lost control of the SUV, which drove onto the shoulder of the highway …

You’d think that air travel is the most dangerous form of transportation. Indeed, the belief seems to be justified given the apparent increase in truly horrific airplane accidents around the world, from the Malaysia Airlines disappearance to the Malaysia Airlines shoot-down to the AirAsia disappearance to, most recently, the awful Germanwings crash in the French Alps.
That said, the facts and data analysis prove that you’re actually far safer flying in an airplane than you are driving or riding in a car (which helps explain why our Delray Beach personal injury law firm represents so many individuals who have …

At the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg, we pride ourselves on being a small, family-operated law firm that puts client service ahead of everything else. Indeed, one of the key differences between our firm and those large personal injury law “factories” is that we’ve intentionally remained small as to maintain our close-knit atmosphere. Likewise, we deliberately limit the number of cases we take on in order to ensure that the clients we do sign up get the care and attention they need and deserve.
Our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers feel our clients and prospective clients should know …

A lot of the information about car accidents deals with what happens to the drivers of the cars, but what happens if you were the passenger of the car that was in a car accident? Mostly, the process is the same for passengers as it for drivers, but there are some important differences.
Getting Medical Bills Paid
If you own a car and have auto insurance that has personal injury protection insurance (PIP), your own auto insurance company will pay for your medical bills under your PIP coverage. In Florida, a standard PIP policy is $10,000 but there are certain …

As our Florida personal injury lawyers know, the stretch from Miami to West Palm Beach consistently ranks as one of the most dangerous places in the country for pedestrians – and it especially so for senior citizens. The statistics, as we’ll explore in this post, paint a frightening picture.
If you’re elderly, South Florida’s roads are particularly treacherous and for many reasons. Relatively slow pace, poor eyesight and the diminished ability to react to the unexpected mean that you’re more likely than normal to be struck by a vehicle. Many senior citizens face this risk every time they walk to …
