Truck accidents are a common occurrence in just about every community in Florida and beyond. There are 67 counties in the State of Florida. Some of more metropolitan and some are more rural than others. What they all share in common is the transit of large community trucks to the Interstates, State Roads, and County Roads in and through the community. A moment of inattention or distraction by a commercial truck driver can lead to a devastating crash that caused permanent injuries and even the wrongful deaths of other drivers, passengers, motorcyclists, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Understanding the need to empower truck accident victims and their families through the challenging times in the aftermath of a truck crash, David Wolf authored the book titled - Big Trucks . . .

In Jacksonville, Florida and throughout the State of Florida, motorcyclists enjoy the freedom and liberty to ride and be protected by the rules of the road just like any operator of a motor vehicle. It is important for all drivers to watch out for motorcyclists and pay them the respect and room to ride that they deserve. Let's face it a motorcycle is not match by weight, size, or volume to most any motor vehicle out on the road from compact vehicles to SUVs (Sport Utility Vehicles) to commercial trucks. The injuries sustained by a motorcyclist can range from just road rash (if the biker is very lucky) to much more devastating injuries like brain damage, fractured bones, neck and back injuries, and other injuries. David Wolf understands and respects the legal rights of motorcyclists. He is the author of the book titled - Watching Out for Motorcyclists - Freedom, Liberty, and Justice - Legal Rights of Injured Bikers.

In Florida and other States, bicyclists - both children and adults alike - are at risk for injuries due to the careless, distracted, and / or negligent driving of motorists. It is important to slow down when a driver sees a bicyclist and respect the legal rights including those related to the use of the roads and streets by cyclists. As required by Section 316.083, Florida Statutes - Overtaking and Passing a Vehicle, a driver of a motor vehicle passing or other taking a bicyclist is required to give the bicyclist at least 3 feet of space. When drivers violate this statute or come close to violating this statute, accidents can and do occur which, in turn, lead to serious personal injuries for the bicyclist. It should also be noted that bicycle injuries and accidents are covered not only by the at-fault driver's automobile insurance policy but can also be covered to some extent by the bicyclist's automobile insurance policy. David Wolf is the author of the book - Bikes, Trikes and Automobiles - Legal Rights of the Injured Cyclist. When the legal rights of a bicyclist are violated, a claim, case, or personal injury lawsuit can be pursued on behalf of the injured cyclist.
Pedestrians are at risk in just about every community. One moment of inattention or carelessness can and does have a devastating impact on the pedestrian and his or her family members. In Florida, pedestrian accidents can occur any time of the day and in any part of the community. School zones and school bus zones, while clearly marked, are often the locations of serious pedestrian accidents causing significant personal injuries to children. While it is common sense to slow down in these areas, we currently live in a world filled with constant distractions from mobile devices, cell phones, and tablets. There are also other distractions in place that have been around for decades include those related to drowsy driving, driving under the impairment of drugs or alcohol, and simple every day acts like eating. If a pedestrian is crossing on a lit crosswalk, the pedestrian should expect that drivers will obey street signs and signals. Even if a pedestrian is not crossing in a designated area, if the driver has the ability to stop or slow down, then the driver also has a duty to do so. Pedestrians have legal rights that can be enforced when there is an accident or injury. David Wolf is the author of 11 books including the book titled - When the Wheels Stop Spinning - Legal Rights of the Injured Child - What Parent Need to Know After the Accident. This book has a section that covers topics related to personal injuries in the aftermath of a Pedestrian Accident.
David Wolf - Personal Injury Attorney - represents adults and children who have been injured as a result of a dog bite or dog attack. In the State of Florida, a dog owner has a duty to follow the applicable leash laws and dog / animal regulations. Furthermore, Florida is a Strict Liability Dog Bite State. As such, a dog owner can be held liable for the personal injuries of a victim regardless of fault or negligent. There are some exceptions to this general rule of law in the State of Florida. Even if a dog had not been vicious or bitten a person in the past, the dog owner can still be held liable. The property owner where the dog resides can also be held liable but only if the property owner was negligent or at fault in some form or manner. For instance, if the dog had a known aggressive personality but the property owner did nothing to require to the dog owner to control or fence the dog, then liability or fault may attach to a dog bite or dog attack case against the property owner. Unfortunately, far too many homeowner's insurance policies these days do not cover dog bite related attacks OR specifically exclude claims or cases related to dog bite incidents. David Wolf is the author of the book - When A Dog Is Not Man's Best Friend - The Legal Rights of the Dog Bite Victim.
A slip and fall case OR a trip and fall case is often referred to as a premises liability case. A property owner (business or residential) has a duty to maintain the premises in a safe and reasonable manner. When there is negligence or fault on the part of the property owner, a slip and fall incident OR a trip and fall incident can take place. It should be noted that a property owner is not automatically liable when a person falls on the property; however, liability can attack if the property owner failed to do something in a timely manner or performed an act in a careless manner. Certainly, a visitor to business or home should reasonably expect the premises to be safe. If there are any dangers on the property - hidden or otherwise, then the property owner should either correct or fix the dangers OR at least warn the invited guest of the dangers. For instance, let's say that there is wet air in the soda aisle at a grocery store. A shopper accidentally crashed the shopping cart into some bottles of soda that were now leaking. The employee of the grocery store was informed of the spill but decided to take his break early rather than put cones down and advise others. The spill remained in place without signs or clean up for 45 minutes. Another shopper then slipped and fell in the soda aisle and fractured her arm. Under these facts, assuming they can be established through evidence and testimony, a premises liability case can be established. The grocery store had notice of a dangerous condition (soda on the floor) and failed to act in a timely manner to clean up the area and / or post warning signs. Keep in mind that slip and fall and trip and fall cases can be quite difficult to prove and premises liability cases are among the more difficult types of cases that are handled by personal injury attorneys.

Expectant women and families rely upon physicians and medical providers to provide care during the term of the pregnancy and especially in the third trimester of a pregnancy up through labor and child birth. The physician and medical staff have a responsibility to perform thorough examinations, order lab work, and follow up with diagnostic tests based on the clinical examination and the medical history. When there are signs, symptoms, and / or other factors present to cause concern and the need for follow up, a child may be permanently injured if the medical providers fail to adhere to the recognized and known practices to serve the best interest of the expectant mother and child. If there is medical negligence or error during the pre-natal care OR during labor and delivery, the resulting damages, injuries, and conditions could have a lifetime effect on the child and the parents. A birth injury is one of the few personal injuries caused by negligence that has this lifetime effect from birth through the lifespan of the child and the rest of the lifespan of the parents. Some of the birth injuries that commonly occur in the State of Florida and elsewhere including the following:
Oxygen Deprivation | Fetal Stroke | Wrongful Death of the Mother | Stillbirth of the Child | Cerebral Palsy | Brain Damage | Erb's Palsy
