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 …

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 …
