Asleep At The Wheel

By Paul Reed |

The government estimates that drowsy drivers cause about 72,000 serious injury crashes a year, and that number may be underreported. Much like alcohol, fatigue slows reaction time, inhibits concentration, and impairs judgment ability. All these things significantly increase the risk of a serious car crash. In fact, driving after eighteen hours without sleep is… Read More »

Understanding Swimming Pool Drownings

By Paul Reed |

Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death for children under four, and for every one fatality, five are treated in hospital emergency rooms for serious injuries. A submerged person develops serious brain damage in about four minutes, and after just six minutes, there is a significant risk of coma and death. These statistics,… Read More »

Hit-And-Run Crash Rate Increases Again

By Paul Reed |

In 2016, there were over 99,000 hit-and-run crashes in Florida, and half of the 19,000 injured victims were pedestrians. There were 94,000 such accidents in 2015 and 85,000 in 2014. Many of these cases are closed quickly because the driver is apprehended at or near the scene. Other cases drag on for months or… Read More »

Momentum Builds To Lower BAC Limit

By Paul Reed |

Utah may soon become the first state in the country to lower the BAC limit from .08 to .05 for noncommercial drivers over 21. Could Florida be next? After passing the House and clearing a Senate panel, House Bill 155 now heads to the full Senate for consideration. Rep. Norm Thurston (R-Provo) said that… Read More »

Who’s Responsible after a Fall?

By Paul Reed |

Over 8 million victims a year visit hospital emergency rooms after a serious fall, making these incidents the most common reason for such trips. Similarly, workplace falls cause more days of missed work than any other type of job injury. Many falls occur at home, but many other happen at shopping malls, office buildings,… Read More »

The Myth And Reality Of Dog Bite Cases

By Paul Reed |

Many pundits claim that the “dog bite” danger is incredibly overblown, because the so-called mastiff breeds, large dogs like labradors, boxers, terriers and rottweilers, are unfairly singled out as dangerous when, in the proper environment, these animals are really just large teddy bears. Alternatively, these pundits often argue that the dog bite victims are… Read More »

Anatomy Of A SMIDSY Crash

By Paul Reed |

According to one prominent study, about a third of motorcycle crashes happen when the motorist makes an unprotected turn in traffic and steers directly into a rider’s path. Typically, that maneuver is a U-turn, an unprotected left turn across traffic, or a sudden lane change. SMIDSY (sorry, mate, I didn’t see you) crashes might… Read More »

Gotta Catch ‘Em All

By Paul Reed |

A mere six months after it became available for download, Pokemon Go has earned more than $1 billion. The mobile game reached the magic number faster than either Puzzles & Dragons or Candy Crush. By comparison, Clash Royale, another phenom mobile game from 2016, peaked at just under $600 million in revenue. Pokemon Go… Read More »

Drugged Driving Negligence Cases In Florida

By Paul Reed |

Because there is no BAC breath test for drug use, and because police officers rarely bother to obtain search warrants for blood draws, almost all drugged driving prosecutions are based on circumstantial evidence. For similar reasons, these cases are more difficult to win in civil court as well, largely because the negligence per se… Read More »

Rented Vehicles And Third Party Liability

By Paul Reed |

One of the main reasons we file negligence lawsuits is to make the roads safer for everyone, and that is also one of the reasons third party (vicarious) liability is so important. Rented vehicles are a good example. If no one holds Enterprise, U-Haul, and other vehicle lessors responsible when they carelessly rent vehicles… Read More »
