Our personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg handle all types of personal injury cases, although most of our work involves representing individuals who have been injured in a car accident caused by the negligence of another. As we know, drivers make mistakes such as fidgeting with the radio, looking into the backseat, driving too quickly, following too closely, etc., all of which increase the likelihood of a car accident.

The rules that …

Sports are competitive by nature – there’s no doubt about that. To be sure, competition makes the game more exciting for the fans and the players. But when team rivalries fuel violent incidents off the field, court or ice, all of the fun associated with team sports goes out the window.
This was highlighted in a ruthless attack in a parking lot outside of Dodgers Stadium on March 31st of 2011; two Dodgers fans brutally beat Bryan Stow, a Giants fan and a career paramedic, into such a critical condition that he had to be subsequently placed in a …

While in the olden days pirates would sometimes have their finger(s) cut off as punishment for misbehaving aboard the ship, the Pirates of the Caribbean ride on which the unfortunate tourist was injured should have done more to remove that aspect of pirate life from the amusement park attraction. …
