Fatal encounters between civilians and police officers have been receiving a lot of attention as of late. All across the country, it seems, individuals are finding themselves in stand-offs with law enforcement officers – and continually winding up on the losing side.
With this in mind, it’s important to remember who can be held liable in unjustified fatal shootings by police officers. Often times, as our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers know, it’s the city responsible for training the police officers that can be held responsible for their actions. A civil case in Boca Raton, Florida, is shedding light …

As our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at Aronberg & Aronberg know, deaths are not exactly rarities in nursing homes. People who live in nursing homes require the assistance of doctors, nurses and other caretakers just to perform basic daily tasks.
Because of this, patients in nursing homes, and their loved ones, need to place a great deal of trust in those expected to care for the patients in these homes. Unfortunately, as our personal injury lawyers know, so-called “caretakers” sometimes betray the trust of their patients and their patients’ family members and neglect the patients to horrifying degrees. It’s …

When most people think of a medical malpractice lawsuit, what comes to mind is a misdiagnosis, a poor treatment decision or perhaps even a fatal surgical mistake. However, as our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at Aronberg & Aronberg know, a recent medical malpractice suit stemmed from a very different type of incident.
In a recently decided case filed by a Virginia man, an anesthesiologist and her medical practice were sued for malpractice and defamation after the man (a patient) discovered a cell phone recording revealing that the anesthesiologist had insulted him repeatedly while he was sedated during a …

Our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know that a lack of sleep can be and often is a contributing factor in thousands of car crashes each year. While tiredness is not often discussed as a main culprit behind tragic accidents, sleepiness is in fact a significant factor in otherwise preventable roadway (and even airway) deaths.
Drowsy driving, which can be as dangerous as drunk driving (as we will explain below), occurs more than you might think. As Harvard Medical School reported, according to the National Sleep Foundation, roughly 103 million people …

As our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know, tailgating is a dangerous driving habit. Unfortunately, last week, a man driving his moped in Boynton Beach was struck by a woman driving too closely behind him. When the woman’s vehicle hit the man’s moped, he lost control of the moped and fell off, striking his head twice suffering a serious head injury and putting him into a coma. He also suffered multiple fractures and remains in the intensive care unit at the hospital.
Our personal injury law firm is now representing …

Our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at Aronberg & Aronberg know that “pool season” is really heating up. While it’s fairly hot year-round down here in Florida, the summer months of no school and longer days mean a significant increase in the time kids spend in and at the pool.
While swimming pools can provide fun and relaxation for the whole family, they also present distinct risks and dangers, both to children (who are most vulnerable to swimming pool-related injuries and health complications) and to homeowners (who have liability in situations in which visitors and guests injure themselves while …

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 …

The right to go to court and make your case is one that is cherished here in the United States and elsewhere across the world. That said, just because you have the right to represent yourself in court doesn’t mean you should. As our personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg will explain, pro se legal representation (in which you represent yourself instead of retaining a lawyer) comes with serious risks.
We shall first address some of the main reasons people who really should be using a lawyer choose not to: cost and confidence. Too many …

As our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know, texting while driving is dangerous – that’s not new, and neither is the statistic that when you text and drive, you are 23 times more likely to crash. We’ve known about the hazards of cell phone-related distracted driving for years, which is why 46 states and D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands have passed laws banning drivers from texting.
Here in Florida, texting while driving is just a secondary offense, though, which means that you can’t be pulled …

Early last month, tech entrepreneur (and husband of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg) Dave Goldberg died after injuring himself on a treadmill.

In this blog, after exploring the events leading to and causing Goldberg’s death, we will outline a number of safety tips to keep in mind when using …
