Tire safety is, as our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know, a significant issue. In this blog post, we are going to explore a number of safety issues presented by underinflated or flat tires.
Simply put, one should not drive on underinflated car tires. Even though most vehicles that you see on the road come equipped with four tires, each one of those four tires are …

According to the Centers for Disease Control (the CDC), in the U.S., more than 10,000 people die each year in drunk driving crashes (that’s about thirty people per day), accounting for roughly 1/3rd of the total deaths that result from traffic accidents each year in the United States. As our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know, DUI-involved car crashes cause agony for the families of the victims; in addition, though, they drive-up auto insurance rates and drain the resources of government emergency response organizations. (The collective annual cost of DUI crashes …

We all know that golf carts are common on modern-day golf courses. And, as you might imagine, they are particularly ever-present in South Florida, home to many senior living villages and retirement communities, where residents use golf carts to get around the neighborhood as well as on the golf course. Our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know that while these vehicles can be useful – and even fun to drive – they are still hazardous and present golf cart owners and riders with serious concerns, both in terms of danger and liability.…

As our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers know, most people are familiar with the saying, “don’t drink and drive.” While this is correct when it’s referring to driving while intoxicated, there are benefits to drinking and driving – if what you’re drinking is water.
New research has shown that driving while dehydrated can be treacherous – just as dangerous as driving while drunk. A study conducted in the United Kingdom has revealed that dehydrated drivers make more than twice the amount of driving mistakes as those who are properly hydrated. Meanwhile, the error rate among dehydrated drivers is comparable to …

Our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know that a lack of sleep can be and often is a contributing factor in thousands of car crashes each year. While tiredness is not often discussed as a main culprit behind tragic accidents, sleepiness is in fact a significant factor in otherwise preventable roadway (and even airway) deaths.
Drowsy driving, which can be as dangerous as drunk driving (as we will explain below), occurs more than you might think. As Harvard Medical School reported, according to the National Sleep Foundation, roughly 103 million people …

As our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know, tailgating is a dangerous driving habit. Unfortunately, last week, a man driving his moped in Boynton Beach was struck by a woman driving too closely behind him. When the woman’s vehicle hit the man’s moped, he lost control of the moped and fell off, striking his head twice suffering a serious head injury and putting him into a coma. He also suffered multiple fractures and remains in the intensive care unit at the hospital.

The right to go to court and make your case is one that is cherished here in the United States and elsewhere across the world. That said, just because you have the right to represent yourself in court doesn’t mean you should. As our personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg will explain, pro se legal representation (in which you represent yourself instead of retaining a lawyer) comes with serious risks.
We shall first address some of the main reasons people who really should be using a lawyer choose not to: cost and confidence. Too many …

As our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know, texting while driving is dangerous – that’s not new, and neither is the statistic that when you text and drive, you are 23 times more likely to crash. We’ve known about the hazards of cell phone-related distracted driving for years, which is why 46 states and D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands have passed laws banning drivers from texting.
Here in Florida, texting while driving is just a secondary offense, though, which means that you can’t be pulled …
