It only takes a moment for an individual's life to change. Moments of texting, fidgeting with the radio, looking away from the road and other distractions can result in serious motor-vehicle accidents.

Sadly, both the responsible driver and another driver suffered serious injuries in a recent Florida crash.

Motor vehicle accidents: Child killed in collision

It is always tragic when lives are lost in car crashes.

What happens when a diner slips and falls at a restaurant?

Florida attorneys can help fathers with paternity and custody

During divorce negotiations and the time following the final decree, issues with child custody and support can continue to be a contentious argument between parents. Fathers who are not married to the mothers of their children may also find themselves in contentious arguments with their child's other parent and in need of legal advice from a Florida family law attorney. If paperwork does not list a child's father at birth, fathers must file legal paperwork to claim legal paternity. Paternity is important for a father to receive visitation and/or custody rights regarding a child.
