Pembroke Pines man killed in rollover

The decision to pursue legal action following a car accident in Gainesville is a difficult one, and no doubt one that people arrive at without first carefully considering the matter. The term "lawsuit" seemingly implies a sense of unfamiliarity, in that one would certainly only take such action against someone that they did not know. Yet there may indeed be times when car accident victims and their families have to make the difficult decision to seek action against someone they do know (and in many cases, have a strong relationship). Often the circumstances of an accident leave them with little choice. 

First vaping death in Florida raises questions about response

The past few months have seen hundreds of cases of lung injuries related to the use of vaping products or e-cigarettes. In some instances, the resulting respiratory distress has been so severe that the patients did not recover. Last week the Centers for Disease Control reported one death in Florida related to vaping. The fatality, the first reported in the state, is one of 12 that have occurred across the country per the CDC's report. 

Florida expressway closed after fatal collision

As devastating as the effects of a car accident can be for those involved and their families, the consequences can be much more far-reaching. A predawn car crash involving two vehicles on Florida's Sawgrass Expressway earlier this week killed one driver and injured another. Not only that, but a portion of the expressway also remained closed for five hours thereafter due to debris from the crash blocking the southbound lanes. 

What is the Glasgow Coma Scale?

After learning that a loved one has been involved in an accident in Gainesville, you are likely overjoyed to hear that they have survived. Yet they may not be completely “out of the woods” yet (particularly if they suffered a brain injury). Traumatic brain injuries can be as minor as a concussion (from which line can recover in just a few days) to serious injuries that can leave one in a persistent vegetative state for the rest of their lives. Yet how are you to know what the outcome of your family member or friend’s TBI may be? 

Understanding food product recall classifications

Consumers in Gainesville are likely confident that the food products that they purchase at the grocery store or order at a restaurant are completely safe (why else would they be made available for consumption?). Yet the fact that several such products are recalled every year in the U.S. dispels this notion. According to information shared by the United States Department of Agriculture, 125 such recalls were initiated in the U.S. in 2018 alone. 

Drunk driving still a problem in Florida

If you are like a lot of people in Florida, you look forward to the summer months for all of the celebrations and freedom to be enjoyed at that time of year. However, you are also likely aware that summer holidays and festivities offer yet more opportunities for people to consume alcohol and still make the choice to drive. Drunk drivers continue to plague Florida's roads and highways despite the strict laws and public awareness campaigns.

Overnight crash in Florida results in 1 death

Automobile accidents in Florida can occur even under the most favorable conditions. Add in a potentially hazardous factor, like decreased visibility in the dark of night, and the risk of a car wreck can go up. A crash involving three cars occurred early Saturday morning on Interstate 95, sending two vehicle occupants to the hospital in serious condition and claiming the life of a 40-year-old female driver.

How to avoid boating accidents

Summer is approaching, and many Florida residents like to spend more and more time outside to take advantage of the longer days and beautiful weather. Recreational water sports such as boating, jet skiing, canoeing and kayaking are a favorite pastime, but unfortunately when preventative measures are not taken, personal injury and even death can occur. We here at Moody Salzman want you to know there are many things while boating to ensure your safety and the safety of your passengers. 

Florida hit-and-run sends car flying

On Thursday morning, an SUV pulled quickly out of a left turning lane on US-1 in Miami Florida and struck a passing car with enough force to send it briefly into the air. The force of the collision sent the SUV into a red pickup truck. It was only a matter of moments before the driver of the SUV drove off and left the scene of the accident. Fortunately for the victims of the crash, a witness to the accident had recently installed a dash cam that recorded the entire incident, the footage of which is now in the hands of authorities.
