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 …

It has been more than five years since the monumental arrest of Bernard (“Bernie”) Madoff, the legendary and infamous operator of the largest financial fraud Ponzi scheme in U.S. history. During, throughout and after Madoff’s trial, it came to light that some of Madoff’s most vulnerable (and damaged) victims included elderly individuals had been convinced and/or coerced either directly or indirectly into handing their money over to Madoff and his henchmen.
Bernie Madoff wasn’t the first financial fraudster to take advantage of the elderly and he certainly won’t be the last. But the fact that Palm Beach, FL, had the …

Senior citizens are among the most vulnerable members of our society; when they move into a nursing home, they and their families expect them to be treated with the utmost care and respect. When these largely helpless individuals are mistreated, they and their families have the right to take legal action against the person or people responsible.
At the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg, our personal injury attorneys often represent elderly individuals and their families, when said seniors have been the victims of what is known as nursing home neglect. Below, we’ve outlined responses to some questions that are …

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 …

As one Miami family just found out, one single post on a Facebook page can cost $80,000.00.
As experienced personal injury attorneys, our lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg are knowledgeable at handling cases in which our client has incurred an injury due to the recklessness or negligence of another. In most instances, our lawyers are able to reach a settlement agreement with the opposing party before the case actually goes to trial. Many settlement agreements include language stipulating that the settlement is confidential and that violating said confidentiality is a breach of contract, thereby nullifying the …

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; …

Recently, a court in Massachusetts ruled that, according to what was state law at the time, it was not unlawful someone to secretly take a photograph up a woman’s skirt (engaging in a practice known informally as “upskirting”).
Society, thanks in large-part to its ever-hungry appetite for technological development, has evolved to the point such that everyone is now a cameraman or camerawoman. When something spontaneous happens in a city park, hundreds are there to document it; when LeBron James hits a game-winning 3-pointer, the event is not only captured by ESPN, but also by thousands of fans on their …

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 …
