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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Most of the drugs you can pick up at the grocery store or pharmacy, etc., have been tested and approved by the FDA. So-called “herbal supplements,” however, which can be purchased at a wide range of stores, aren’t subjected to the rigorous FDA testing. Thus, as our personal injury lawyers know, it’s no real surprise that what you get inside the bottle of these supplements often differs considerably from what is advertised on the labels of the bottles.
According to the Sun Sentinel, special DNA testing on hundreds of bottles of store-brand herbal supplements, which had been sold as treatments …

Voir dire is the process during which lawyers question potential jurors in order to determine their ability to be objective members of a jury during a criminal or civil trial. As our Florida personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg know, voir dire is an incredibly important part of any trial; if the process goes wrong, if an impartial individual makes his or her way onto the jury, justice itself is put at risk.
A very recent personal injury case that made its way to the Supreme Court, Warger v. Shauers, highlights the importance of …
