Our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers know that for the last few years, locations all over the world have been touched by Airbnb’s innovative hospitality services. With all of the cost-effectiveness, ease and excitement associated with booking a stay in a room, apartment or house, some of the more unpleasant hypotheticals tend to go overlooked.
For instance, our personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know that a not-so-straightforward legal issue arises in the question of who is responsible for damages when a guest is bitten by a dog during an Airbnb stay.
When Airbnb got …

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 …

It’s said that consuming wine (red wine mostly) in moderation can be a “heart healthy” thing to do, as the antioxidants in the wine are capable of preventing heart disease by increasing the levels of lipoprotein. In addition to its purported health benefits, our Delray Beach personal injury and product liability lawyers know that fans of wine savor the taste and relaxing effects of the grape-based alcoholic drink.
However, a new class action lawsuit is claiming that a number of wine manufacturers have been producing and selling wine containing dangerously high levels of arsenic, a chemical that is potential deadly …

Our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers know that this time of the year is especially stressful when it comes to finances, as the tax return filing deadline is fast approaching. Will you owe money? Will you get money back? And, most importantly, are you filling out your tax returns properly?
This concerns us because, as we know all too well, personal injury doesn’t just come in the form of physical harm – it can be emotional, mental and/or financial, as we will discuss here.
One of the most terrifying scenarios that can play-out in a taxpayer’s head is receiving a …

As the U.S. population ages, slip-and-falls among the elderly have become a major issue. More than 2.4 million people per year over the age of 65 suffer injuries in falls that are serious enough to require a visit to an emergency room, according to the Centers for Disease Control. That’s double the number from just 10 years ago!
And during the past 10 years, more than 200,000 senior citizens died after falls. In fact, falls are now the leading cause of death among Americans over 65 years old.
If you are a senior who has experienced a fall (or if …
