Back in 2008, a Best Buy employee slipped out of his safety belt/harness and onto the floor while he was attempting to retrieve a television in the store’s storage facility. Subsequently, he sued the company that manufactured the faulty harness, ultimately (and just recently) obtaining a settlement of $1.2 million for his injuries.

They say that time waits for no one. As our personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know, neither does justice.
Let’s clarify that: if you’ve been injured due to the wrongdoing of another, you only have a certain amount of time during which you can file a legal claim seeking compensation for damages. After that window of time expires, even if you suffered a serious, life-long injury that will plague you for the rest of your life, you’re pretty much out of luck in terms of seeking compensation from the negligent party. 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 …

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 …
