As the mom of one licensed teen driver and one soon-to-be licensed teen driver, and as a Sarasota personal injury attorney with (too much) experience handling crashes caused by teen drivers, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how to best navigate this rite of passage. Florida’s Graduated Drivers Licensing (GDL) offers some help. During […]

  For some people, motorcycles are a better alternative than driving a car. Not only are motorcycles fuel-efficient, but they are also thrilling, allowing the driver to really experience the open road. But despite their appeal, motorcycles can also be extremely dangerous.

A personal injury lawyer can handle car, truck, motorcycle, and pedestrian accidents, slip and fall accidents, wrongful deaths, and a bunch of other personal injury suits depending on the circumstances […]

The term “slip and fall” may conjure up the image of slick tiles and yellow “Wet Floor” signs in retail store aisles. But puddles in grocery store aisles aren’t the only premise liability hazards waiting to trip up unsuspecting victims. According to the National Safety Council, over 1 million people are injured from stair falls […]

Car crashes are something to avoid in any state of the US. But according to a Wallethub study, Florida is the worst state to get in a car accident—at least for your wallet. What makes Florida such a risky state for drivers? According to the study, the Sunshine State has a high number of uninsured […]

Unfortunately, not all send offs for a loved one go as envisioned.  News stories increasingly also provide examples of how the intended funeral, wake, celebration of life has been seriously undermined and even ruined by the gross negligence or abuse of the funeral home, cremation service, or mortuary selected.  When funeral home abuse or cemetery […]
