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 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 …

This year, General Motors has recalled roughly 29 million vehicles in the wake of deadly malfunctions, which led to switches in the ignition that shut off the engine and dangerously prevented airbags from inflating.

This large-scale fiasco has left families grieving the loss of their loved ones, and the comfort that the now deceased people provided. Now, experts are debating how best to compensate the victims.
As reported by USA Today, GM has hired attorney Kenneth Feinberg, …

In the wake of the serious highway accident last month that nearly took the life of beloved actor and comedian Tracy Morgan (and ended the life of one of his colleagues), Morgan has filed a lawsuit against Wal-Mart, the company that owns the giant truck that caused the crash. Our personal injury lawyers know what to expect with this case, for we’ve handled similar lawsuits emanating from very similar circumstances.
The lawsuit in the case named Morgan v. Wal-Mart (14-cv-4388), which will be handled in a U.S. District Court in New Jersey (where the crash took place), claims that …

Our experienced personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg represent individuals who have been injured due to the negligence of others, whether or not that negligence occurs on a construction site, in a supermarket or – as is most often the case – on the roadway.

Unfortunately, as TIME recently reported, despite ever-increasing numbers of public service announcements warning about the dangers of texting while driving (something that is …
