Florida Car Accident Lawyers Eye Fed Action on Takata Airbag Recalls

[vc_row triangle_shape="no"][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text]Many a Florida car accident lawyer is keeping an eye on the Takata airbag recall, which is more than what regulators are doing. That's according to Florida Senator Bill Nelson, who has been pushing for more effective government action. Nelson cited a newly released government audit of the National Highway Transportation Safety Authority (NHTSA).  A report by the Office of Inspector General for the U.S Department of Transportation says “NHTSA’s lack of internal accountability and risk-based oversight inhibits the agency’s ability to meet its safety mission.” In other words, regulators are not doing enough to get unsafe cars off the road.   [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_column_text] The...

Accident Lawsuit Snapchat: Personal Injury or Product Liability?

In the race to stay ahead in the social media business, speed is everything. Snapchat emerged in 2012 as a social media alternative to Facebook, which began to lose its appeal as mobile phones became popular. The initial attraction of the app lay in its ephemeral nature. Selfies didn't linger on the internet to come back and haunt you as you went on job interviews. Ten seconds after you saw a picture on your phone, it disappeared. It's a young person's app, keep moving, and the faster the better. It also plays to the interactive, attention-getting aspects of youthful personality. Look at me....

Orlando Personal Injury Lawyers and Theme Park Injuries

Orlando personal injury attorneys are paying special attention to a recent spate of Florida theme park accidents and injuries. Six people were seriously hurt in a recent Daytona Beach roller coaster accident when the cars derailed. And Walt Disney World logged several accidents or incidents in its latest report to state authorities on visitor health problems. Considering the fact that Disney hosts more than 20 million visitors a year, their safety record is pretty impressive. Florida amusement and theme parks forgo state inspections by agreeing to voluntarily report accidents, injuries or health problems.

Florida Car Accident Deaths Include Kids in Hot Cars

Orlando Traffic Accidents: How Safe is Driving in Central Florida?

Seems the locals don't believe what the experts at WalletHub say about the Orlando driving experience. WDBO is skeptical. "REALLY? WALLETHUB RANKS ORLANDO AS 3RD BEST US CITY FOR DRIVING" WFTV is also incredulous: "Orlando is (somehow) the 3rd best U.S. city to drive in, study says" Orlando Business Journal isn't buying it either: "Orlando a top city for drivers — wait, what?" Maybe it's the ever-rising number of Orlando traffic accidents. Or the never-ending I-4 Ultimate Improvement Project. Maybe the fact the millions of disoriented tourists hop onto Orlando's unfamiliar roads in rental cars every year. Or the thousands distracted driving accidents on Florida's roads....
