An accident at Disney World in Orlando last Thursday resulted in a tourist losing two of his fingertips. As our personal injury lawyers know, people visit Disney World to have a relaxing, amusing time – not to have two of their fingers mutilated on a ride that they’ve paid to enjoy.
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. …

Tanning salons can be seemingly useful in many circumstances, especially to those who don’t live in sunny states like Florida. If you live in New York and want to look a bit tanner for your wedding in November, you can disregard the chilly temperatures and head to the tanning salon. Unfortunately, the more you visit the tanning salon, the higher your risk of developing skin cancer. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, you’re 59% more likely to develop melanoma if you use tanning beds than you’d be if you didn’t.
The FDA will mandate that future tanning beds contain …

Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” rule is the controversial and headline-grabbing law that has raised voices and inspired protests all around the country, most notably in the wake of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed teen gunned down by a man claiming to have shot in self-defense. Indeed, as outlined in Chapter 776 of the Florida State Statutes, the law does allow for the lawful use of force, including deadly force, by someone in order to defend himself or herself against someone using imminent, unlawful force.
While the aforementioned criminal case rattled the airwaves and opinions of criminal defense …

Our experienced personal injury attorneys represent individuals who have been injured by the negligence of others; more often than not, our clients sustain injuries from auto accidents caused by the recklessness of others. While our clients are frequently harmed as travelers (or drivers) in a motor vehicle that was hit by the negligent driver, sometimes they are pedestrians who are hit by reckless drivers unable or unwilling to safely share the road with those on foot.
According to a new report issued last month, pedestrian deaths in the United States are at an all-time high. Furthermore, if you happen to …

Still, our friends from out of state are just getting ready to plunge into summer, a time of warmth and enjoyment for students who are out of school.
While the warmest months are pleasurable in many ways, our personal injury lawyers know that summer fun can oftentimes turn into summer pain. In this blog, we are going to outline some dangerous summertime activities that children should engage in with great caution and with …

They say dog is a man’s best friend, but how good is a friend if he bites you so hard that you wind up in the hospital? This is not an exaggerated hypothetical, nor is it an infrequent problem; every day, roughly 1,000 Americans require emergency care due to dog bite injuries. With this in mind, do you know that you would probably be legally responsible if your dog inflicts injuries on someone?
According to Florida law, the owner of a dog who bites someone is liable “for the damages suffered by the person bitten, regardless of the former …

What are you supposed to do if you or a loved one suffers due to the negligence of the police? A recent story out of Denver is shedding light on this very issue. In a tragic and possibly avoidable turn of events, a mother of three was recently gunned down by her husband. Many people are now saying that she could have been saved had the police arrived in a timely fashion. You see, the woman was actually on the phone with law enforcement at the time of her murder – and she had been on the phone with police …

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 …
