‘Alarming’ Increase In Pedestrian Fatalities

By Paul Reed |

That was the word one observer used to describe an 11 percent increase in pedestrian traffic deaths. That’s the highest single-year increase ever and almost twice the size of the increase in traffic deaths overall. Lower gas prices and a better economy mean that more cars are on the roads, and a significant number… Read More »

What You Need To Know About Residential Swimming Pool Injuries

By Paul Reed |

Eighty percent of the 7,000 swimming pool drowning deaths that occur each year happen in backyard spas or pools. This figure does not include the number of swimming pool and spa poisonings, because sometimes owners overuse toxic cleaning chemicals, like chlorine and bromine. This figure also does not include the number of serious swimming… Read More »

Winning Money In Alcohol-Related Car Crashes

By Paul Reed |

Human error causes almost all car crashes, and many times, that error is unrelated to driving. For example, a tire may be defective or the operator may be too sleepy to drive. Alcohol impairment, which is a factor in about a third of the fatal vehicle collisions in Florida, may be the most prominent… Read More »

Motorcycle Helmets And Negligence Cases In Florida

By Paul Reed |

Although most all states passed seat belt laws with practically no opposition or fanfare, other vehicular safety laws have stirred more controversy, and motorcycle helmet laws are a good example. While there is little or no evidence on point, many riders, and some safety advocates, believe that motorcycle helmets are basically a wash. While… Read More »

Florida Supreme Court Strikes Malpractice Damage Cap

By Ryan Reed |

A sharply-divided body ruled that limits which “arbitrarily reduce damage awards for plaintiffs who suffer the most drastic injuries” are unconstitutional. Former Gov. Jeb Bush called the Legislature into special session three times before lawmakers eventually approved caps as low as $100,000. Typically, the maximum was $500,000 for serious cases and $1 million for… Read More »

Researchers Scrutinize Childhood Brain Injuries

By Paul Reed |

Scientists once believed that young children could recuperate rather quickly from brain injuries, but the evidence now indicates otherwise. A study from the Monash University School of Psychological Sciences concluded that even moderate brain injuries among children caused anxiety, depression and other symptoms more than a decade after the trauma occurred. These effects are… Read More »

Breaking Down A Drowsy Driving Crash

By Paul Reed |

The AAA estimates that fatigued drivers cause about a third of the injury crashes in Florida, but this figure is nothing more than a rough estimate. For one thing, there is no “Breathalyzer” test to determine fatigue; for another, many law-enforcement agencies do not code crashes as drowsy driving-related unless the tortfeasor (negligent driver)… Read More »

Governor Mulls Enhanced Funding For CP Victims

By Paul Reed |

The governor’s office has received thousands of phone calls, letters, and e-mails about House Bill 7069, and the volume is about three-to-one against the measure’s highly controversial voucher provision. If enacted, House Bill 7069 would increase homeschool voucher funding for parents of children with cerebral palsy and other disabilities by about $30 million. Most… Read More »

Florida Court Emphasizes Different Legal Responsibilities; Dismisses Slip-And-Fall Case

By Paul Reed |

A West Palm Beach woman lost her appeal against a condominium company; she had sued for damages following a slip-and-fall in a retail area. In Arp v. Waterway East Association, the victim slipped on a loose pavement stone in a shopping center parking lot about 11:00 one night. At trial, the victim testified that… Read More »

Florida Declared Worst State For Motorcycle Riders

By Paul Reed |

After several years of declining numbers, the death toll among Florida motorcycle riders went up 30 percent in 2015. Moreover, although they account for only 3 percent of the traffic, motorcycle riders make up 20 percent of roadway fatalities in Florida. Victims who survive face an average of $84,000 in medical expenses. Miami-Dade County… Read More »
