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 …

Our personal injury lawyers frequently represent individuals who have been injured or otherwise harmed by the negligence or wrongdoing of another. Sometimes, the harm in question is the loss of a loved one, and in a wrongful death case (i.e. one stemming from a car crash, a surgical mistake, etc.), we represent the families of the deceased in seeking compensation from the people or organizations responsible for causing the wrongful death.
In a fascinating (and quire crazy) turn of legal precedent, a Utah court has granted a woman the ability to sue herself for the wrongful death of her husband. …

At the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg, we know you’d be hard pressed to find someone who wouldn’t agree that drunk driving is dangerous driving.
But while the vast majority of us accurately view drunk driving as a serious threat to our very lives, far too many of us don’t truly understand the nature of the danger and too many have a skewed understanding of what constitutes “drunk driving” in the first place. Because our personal injury lawyers frequently represent individuals who have been injured in alcohol-related car crashes, we’d like to take this time to dispel …

Our personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg handle many different types of personal injury cases, though most arise from car crashes. Among the most complicated types of auto accidents, in terms of determining liability of the server/provider of alcohol, is a DUI-related collision, caused by the inebriation of the at-fault driver.
In representing our clients, individuals who have sustained injuries due to the negligence or wrongdoing of others, we seek to obtain compensation to cover their damages. Our clients deserve to have their medical bills, car repair bills, etc., covered by the negligent party who …

According to a new report, Florida is the worst state for getting into a car crash. Our personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know that our state’s high level of uninsured drivers, combined with the minimal insurance requirements we have, translates into costly auto accidents for those who crash their cars in the Sunshine State. According to the South Florida Business Journal, Florida is the “riskiest state for drivers’ wallets.”
One of the biggest issues facing individuals who have been in a car accident is cost. How will I cover repairs? How will I …

Our personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know that on the first day of 2015, a new child car seat law went into effect. This law changes the safety requirements concerning transporting young children in motor vehicles.
In our practice, we represent individuals who have been injured due to the negligence and/or recklessness of others. Frequently, these injuries are the result of auto accidents. Unfortunately, when children are present in a struck motor vehicle, they are more susceptible to sustaining injuries than are the adults in the car, simply given their smaller, more fragile bodies.…

When people think of the most dangerous thing to do involving a car, it’s safe to say most think of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) – and with good reason. Every year, according to the CDC, which monitors these statistics, over 10,000 people are killed in alcohol-caused car accidents, amounting to roughly 1/3rd of car crash fatalities in the U.S. That number leads to the horrifying fact that, on average, thirty Americans are killed every single day by drunk drivers.
As our personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg …

For many, including and especially college students home over winter break, the celebration of the New Year does not signal the end of the holiday season. Whether we are talking about Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, etc., or the early weeks of January, holiday travel means busy roads and distracted drivers. Moreover, the increase in celebrations during this time of year means a significant increase in alcohol-related driving incidents all over the country.
Our personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know that alcohol and motor vehicles are a toxic mix. We’ve represented many clients who have …

Voir dire is the process during which lawyers question potential jurors in order to determine their ability to be objective members of a jury during a criminal or civil trial. As our Florida personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know, voir dire is an incredibly important part of any trial; if the process goes wrong, if an impartial individual makes his or her way onto the jury, justice itself is put at risk.
A very recent personal injury case that made its way to the Supreme Court, Warger v. Shauers, highlights the importance of …
