The unique nature of tourism industry injuries

Florida is one of the states with the highest population of workers involved in the tourism industry. These workers face many hazards during the course of their jobs. Some are involved with adventure travel, while others have unique working experiences on cruise boats.

There are several laws that govern workplace safety, and each industry is different. For example, incidents arising from demonstrating zip line safety and problems from working on a cruise ship could necessitate different legal actions when it comes to seeking compensation for injuries.

How much power do HOAs have?

Florida is known for, among other things, luscious homes, condos and waterfront properties in the Land of the Sun. For many people, buying their own Florida home represents a lifetime dream. But before you get too excited thinking that you have found your dream house, you should carefully check out the local homeowners’ association.

  • The type of roof you can have
  • The exterior paint colors you can use
  • The type of siding you can install
  • The type and height of fencing you can install, assuming you can install any fencing at all
  • The type and amount of landscaping you can have
  • The number of pets, if any, you can own

How to avoid being a distracted driver

With the holidays starting, many Florida drivers will spend more time on the road-driving to holiday parties, going shopping for presents and visiting their families. With all the preparations going on, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and like you will never get it all done.

No matter how many things you have going on, you must remember distracted driving is incredibly dangerous. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were nearly 400,000 distracted driving crashes in 2015, and 3,450 died in distracted driving accidents in 2016. Here are some tips to help you focus on the road and avoid getting into a distracted driving accident.

Everyone on the road can help keep motorcyclists safer

Motorcycle accidents are often some of the most catastrophic in terms of the risk of injury or death caused by these collisions. While it is important that the motorcyclists and their passengers take extra precautions when using these vehicles to travel in Florida, it is also the responsibility of other drivers on the road to keep an extra eye out for their fellow travelers' safety.

Every person on the road can help reduce the risk of injury and death for those operating two or three-wheeled vehicles. Taking an extra glance or waiting a few seconds can mean the difference between safety and catastrophe on the roads.

Tips to avoiding road rage

Road rage is a common phenomenon that takes hold of even the best of drivers. While it is common, it can be dangerous to you and other drivers on the road, not to mention that it could get you in trouble with the police.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 94 percent of accidents are due to error from the driver, 33 percent of which they link to behaviors such as road rage.
