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 …

If you host a party at your house and one of your invited guests trips on an ill-placed brick on the walkway to your front door, they can sue you in the hopes of obtaining compensation for the injuries they sustain. Indeed, as the owner of your home, you are liable for the injuries of those who are on your property, especially if they are there legally (as are invited guests).
But what if, during that same party, a robber broke into your home and tried to steal a jewelry box? If the robber injured himself or herself on …

Amusement parks are generally destinations filled with fun; places on which families descend in anticipation of a day of thrill and, well, amusement. Unfortunately, though, as many of our clients have learned the hard way, amusement parks can be dangerous places if proper precautions are not taken.
As South Florida personal injury attorneys, our lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg have represented numerous individuals who have gone to amusement parks only to leave with broken legs or broken arms, dislocated shoulders, broken ankles, etc. How can a place touted as a center of fun be, in …

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

A pharmacy (a store that, in its simplest form, dispenses medicine to promote health) banning the sale of cigarettes seems like a no-brainer. But CVS is far more than your average pharmacy – it serves customers looking to pick-up a wide range of products including greeting cards, essential groceries, basic clothing, electronics, school supplies, makeup, hygiene essentials, vitamins, cold medicine, and, yes, prescription drugs. CVS Pharmacy, the division of CVS Caremark Corporation with which almost every American is familiar, saw an annual revenue last year of far more than $100 billion. With more than 7,600 locations, it isn’t surprising that …

As personal injury lawyers, we often come under fire from tort reform advocates who call us derogatory terms such as “ambulance chasers,” implying that we are an overly-officious group of attorneys who will file lawsuits at the drop of a hat. We’ve got thick skin and we know the truth paints quite a different picture. The main problem with these baseless insults is that they marginalize the suffering of our clients, the victims of situations that have caused pain and misery in addition to a host of other damages. Society has come to realize that you shouldn’t have to …

Yes, it’s happened again. Our personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg and Aronberg are beginning to think it might be time to create a new blog site entirely dedicated to our coverage of cruise ship disasters to which innocent individuals fall victim.
It seems like, on a more and more frequent basis, we receive information about a cruise vacation gone awry. From one cruise ship toppling off the coast of Italy to another losing electricity off the coast of Florida, cruise liners and their owners have been making headlines in recent months. It is often said …

The saying goes, “dog is man’s best friend.” There are a lot of things people would do for their best friends. For example, people sometimes choose to take the fall for their friend’s wrongdoings. Well, under Florida law, dog’s best friend doesn’t simply have the choice of doing so or not—they must take responsibility, and can even go to jail, for their dog’s wrongdoing.
Case in point: in August of this past year, a man in the Florida Panhandle was convicted of manslaughter; he faces up to 15 years in jail. What was the crime that the man committed? …

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 …
