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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

So, if you or a loved one sustains an injury at a hotel, what are you to do? The first and most important thing that you should do when you incur an injury at a hotel, or …

One of the most prevalent yet misinterpreted incidents involving personal injury are cases of “slip and falls,” in which an individual slips or falls (or trips, etc.), specifically due to the presence of a misplaced object (a brick protruding from a sidewalk), a walking space not properly kept (such as a wet floor in a grocery store), etc. The fact that the injuries in slip-and-fall cases are due to the individual slipping over or falling on an object or space that was not safely maintained means that the individual who has injured himself or herself has a legal claim …

While infections, lacerations and loss of limbs might commonly be associated with hospitals, construction sites or car crashes, they’re not typically discussed in the same breath as nail salons. Nevertheless, while commonly thought of as leisurely destinations for relaxation and pampering, the fact is that nail salons can be breeding grounds for bacteria and thus a prime location at which people can sustain serious injuries.
Nail salon tools and appliances can, when not properly cleansed and used, prove incredibly dangerous. Unsanitary manicure/pedicure utensils and dirty pedicure footbaths, for example, can lead to a variety of injuries and subsequent illnesses, …

What’s better: a bowl of cereal now, or a bowl of cereal in an hour? Well, if you’re hungry, the obvious answer is the former. But let’s complicate this a bit. What would you say if the deal were that you could receive ten cheerios now or a full bowl of cereal, to which you are entitled, in 5 hours?
Many car accident victims are faced with a far more serious version of the above dilemma. Often times, following a car accident, the insurance company for the negligent driver will make an offensively low offer to the injured driver, …
