On Memorial Day, a waterspout made landfall in Fort Lauderdale, uprooting a bounce house situated on a beach; three children were injured (one critically) and transported to an area hospital. As our personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know, the mix of unpredictable weather and otherwise potentially hazardous contraptions (such as bounce houses) can prove dangerous.
According to news reports, the waterspout made landfall on Monday afternoon, causing a bounce house to tumble over before launching the bounce house 25 feet into the air. Eventually, as our personal injury lawyers know, the blow-up house …

This past week has not been a good one for Amtrak. Ever since their train (#188) crashed in Philadelphia while traveling along a very popular route, anger, confusion and disbelief have flooded the airwaves. With eight confirmed fatalities, and hundreds of others dealing with injuries sustained in the crash, people want to know why the crash happened. But as our personal injury lawyers know, the issue of how and when the victims will be compensated is an equally important question and one with a potentially disappointing answer.
To begin with, let’s address the issue of liability. All things considered, based …

An Amtrak commuter train (#188), carrying 238 passengers and five crew members, derailed and rolled onto its side Tuesday night in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia, PA.

If you’ve turned on the news over the past year (frankly, if you’ve been awake), you’ve undoubtedly heard of instances of alleged excessive use of force by law enforcement officers from California to Baltimore to South Carolina, just to name a few. In each of these cases, video footage has suggested police officers acting recklessly, or negligently, and thereby causing the injury or death of their victim, typically an individual suspected of having committed a non-violent crime.
Our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know that police officers serve to enforce the …

Our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know that one of the most common problems we encounter in handling cases stemming from car accidents, slip & falls, medical malpractice, etc., has to do with timing – in other words, people waiting too long to contact a personal injury lawyer after they’ve been injured due to the negligence of another.
Why is it so important to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after an accident? Quickly getting in touch with a personal injury lawyer will give you the benefit of experience …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Nina Pham, the nurse at a Texas hospital who was the first person in the U.S. to contract the deadly Ebola virus, is now suing her employer – a Texas hospital company – over the ordeal and its lingering effects.
Pham, whose lawsuit against Texas Health Resources Hospital makes allegations of negligence, deception and invasion of privacy, says she has had ongoing health problems even since being cured of the disease, with which she was diagnosed in mid-October of last year.

As our Florida personal injury lawyers know, the stretch from Miami to West Palm Beach consistently ranks as one of the most dangerous places in the country for pedestrians – and it especially so for senior citizens. The statistics, as we’ll explore in this post, paint a frightening picture.
If you’re elderly, South Florida’s roads are particularly treacherous and for many reasons. Relatively slow pace, poor eyesight and the diminished ability to react to the unexpected mean that you’re more likely than normal to be struck by a vehicle. Many senior citizens face this risk every time they walk to …
