What are you supposed to do if you or a loved one suffers due to the negligence of the police? A recent story out of Denver is shedding light on this very issue. In a tragic and possibly avoidable turn of events, a mother of three was recently gunned down by her husband. Many people are now saying that she could have been saved had the police arrived in a timely fashion. You see, the woman was actually on the phone with law enforcement at the time of her murder – and she had been on the phone with police …

A tragic event that transpired earlier this month in California has given a grim and realistic new meaning to the often-repeated phrase “crash and burn.”
What should have been a memorable and inspiring trip on which prospective college students toured a university quickly turned into a nightmare, as a FedEx truck drove across a 60-foot median on Interstate 5 in California and went barreling into the front of a bus full of high schoolers, killing five children, three of their adult chaperones, and the drivers of both vehicles.
In addition to the wreckage due to the impact, the situation was …

Recently, we posted a blog on this site in which we talked about an innovative feature that will be commonplace among cars of the not-so-distant future, namely a feature that will enable vehicles to “communicate” with one another. The purpose of this upcoming safety tool will be to enhance commuter safety by significantly reducing the number of auto accidents due to driver error.
It seems as though the U.S. government has made another bold move in the direction of commuter safety; by May of 2018, all new cars in the U.S. will be required to have rear view cameras, …

Our dedicated personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know that increasing national focus on the dangers of prescription pill abuse has done little to curb the epidemic. Year after year, thousands of individuals hurt themselves and others because of the intoxicating effects of prescription pills.
One of the most dangerous aspects of prescription pills is that they exist legally. Unlike cocaine and heroin, for example, prescription pills frequent the medicine cabinets of people all over the world, and recognition of this fact does not raise eyebrows. The fact that the pills are easily obtained means …

There is arguably no field of law so burdened by misconceptions and untruths as personal injury law, practiced by attorneys – such as our lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg – who represent individuals who have sustained injuries due to the recklessness and/or negligence of others. Therefore, today, we’d like to take the time to address just a few of the more frequent and false remarks leveled at our field of law; these flawed notions often times fuel lies regarding the specifics of personal injury cases and thereby undermine the likelihood of victims being able to obtain …

We’ve long known that motor vehicle accidents are the primary cause of death in children under the age of 14. During 2011 alone (the last year for which there is verifiable data), 650 children were killed in car crashes in the U.S. and another 148,000 were left injured. 1/3rd of these children were not fastened into car seats.
The AAA is not alone in its support for stricter child car seat laws in Florida. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Florida Emergency Nurses Association also support tougher standards. Furthermore, there is bipartisan support for such measures; …

Our South Florida personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg handle all types of personal injury cases, but the most frequent type of case that we take on involves car accidents in which an individual has sustained injury due to recklessness or negligence of another driver. These car accidents occur for a variety of reasons, many of which the general public is familiar with.
Everyone is aware of the dangers of driving while drunk, for example, but did you know that driving while drowsy could be just as deadly?
According to a new report from the …

As personal injury attorneys, we have represented many individuals who have been permanently injured in auto accidents caused by the negligence of others. Additionally, we often represent the grieving families of people who were killed during a car crashes that were not their fault.
How frequent are these types of accidents? Consider this: approximately 33,000 Americans are killed and 2.3 million Americans are injured every year in car accidents. The government is well-aware of this and, according to a televised report by CNN on February 3rd, they are planning a major policy initiative geared at diminishing the amount

As experienced South Florida personal injury attorneys, we know that when an individual is harmed due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another, they have a right to take that individual to court in pursuit of compensation for the damages sustained as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing. A caveat to this rule lies within subsection s. 768.13 of the Florida State Statutes, otherwise known as Florida’s “Good Samaritan Act.”
No, this isn’t the type of Good Samaritan Law that was a part of the series finale of Seinfeld—you know, when Jerry, George, Kramer and Elaine were …

In late September of this past year, a married couple and their young child were driving in their SUV when, on a highway in New York City, a gang of motorcyclists surrounded the vehicle and taunted those inside the SUV. The aggressive motorcyclists, members of a group known to cause disturbances in and around Manhattan, circled the vehicle, virtually preventing it from moving forward.
Terrified for the safety of his family, the driver peeled away from the scene, accidentally injuring a biker in the process. Ostensibly agitated by the direction in which the situation had turned, the motorcyclists followed. They …
