Seven Weeks, Six Workplace Deaths in Broward County

A construction accident July 21 marked the sixth workplace fatality in Broward County in just seven weeks. The accident happened around 8 a.m. at a construction site where a car dealership is being built. It seems that a beam gave way, causing a domino effect that killed one worker and injured two others. According to an eyewitness, a crane was lowering a joist into place when a support failed. The resulting collapse knocked over three men who were on a ladder. Fellow workers rushed to the scene and rescuers apparently attempted CPR on the victims. All three were rushed to the hospital, but one was pronounced dead. The other two men were listed in critical condition. The construction team belongs … Continue reading

Tips for Enjoying a Safe, DUI-Free Night Out

A San Diego County DUI case that started in 2012 has finally reached its conclusion with the suspect, Jorge Lopez, pleading guilty to a myriad of charges including “…voluntary manslaughter, drunken driving with injury, reckless evasion causing injury, participating in a speed contest causing death, assault with a deadly weapon and three counts of assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer. “ Lopez, who was apparently racing another driver, refused to slow down when the police attempted to pull him over. His vehicle reached speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour before losing control and slamming into a parked vehicle. It has been reported that Lopez had a prior DUI conviction as well as multiple speeding tickets … Continue reading

Tips for Sharing the Road with Motorcyclists

California Highway Patrol is seeking the public’s assistance with information about a hit-and-run accident that occurred on Interstate15 resulting in the death of a motorcyclist. Witnesses say a cream-colored sedan changed lanes, and struck the motorcycle, sending it into the path of a box truck causing the fatality. The sedan continued along its path, neglecting to stop to assist in any way. Sadly, another motorcycle fatality was reported at 2:40 a.m. on Tuesday on Highway 101 causing the closure of two lanes of traffic for approximately two hours. The California Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles shows 857,624 motorcycles registered in the state for 2013 while the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports 47 motorcycle fatalities for 2012 … Continue reading

Miami Fourth of July Boat Accident Leaves Four Dead

We’ve written a great deal about boat accidents and the importance of safe boating. One recent accident drives home just how serious a maritime collision can be. Unlike last week’s story, which involved a lot of bad decisions, what could have been a minor collision earlier this month became a tragedy due to conditions. It started on the Fourth of July, when many Miami boaters go to view the fireworks from sea. Unfortunately, when the fireworks are over, most boaters turn immediately back for shore. That results in a crush of small boats all moving toward a few marinas in the dark, sometimes without adequate lights or even with intoxicated pilots. It was during this nighttime rush that the collision … Continue reading

Miami Firm Embraces South America’s Influence on Culture

Empanadas, enchiladas, arepas, ceviche, arroz con pollo – all Hispanic foods that are becoming main-stream in South Florida and symbolize only one way in which Hispanic culture is influencing the Miami landscape. But savory meals are not the solitary contribution of this growing demographic. Initially a Cuban mecca, Miami is now the destination of choice for people from all over South America with populations from Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, and Venezuela to name just a few. Years ago, radio stations and businesses catered almost solely to Cubans. Now, there is a greater bend in diversity throughout the region. World-wide there are 500 million people – across 23 countries – who speak Spanish as a primary language. In the United States alone … Continue reading

Sharing the Road with Sleepy Truckers

Our nation’s roadways are travelled by millions of vehicles each day. Most drivers are responsible, follow the rules of the road, and take necessary precautions not to operate their vehicle if they are physically impaired in some way. There are always a small percentage of drivers who risk driving under circumstances they shouldn’t. This could mean they are under the influence of a substance – whether legal or illegal – or they are just plain tired. The attorneys at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene recognize the hazards associated with driving while sleep deprived and have previously shared about the dangers of drowsy driving – especially as it relates to truck drivers. Sometimes luck wins out and the driver gets to their … Continue reading

Will New Florida Parasailing Law Reduce Accidents?

We wrote recently about a National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) report on the dangers of unregulated parasailing operators. In Florida, some of those dangers may be mitigated soon. After all, a new parasailing law was signed last month by Gov. Rick Scott. But will the law, dubbed the White-Miskell Act, really help reduce parasailing accidents? It’s far from a perfect solution. The White-Miskell Act was named after two women who were separately killed in parasailing accidents in Florida. While the law that bears their names is a major step forward for safety, it ironically may not have prevented their deaths even if it had been in effect when they put on the harness. To be clear, the new law, effective … Continue reading

$1.3M Settlement Secured for Accident Victim

In a recent case, our client, a 56 year-old Mexican immigrant, had spent a fun-filled day with his wife and granddaughter at Gatorland in Orlando, FL. The traffic heading home was stop-and-go and our client’s vehicle was violently rear-ended by a tractor-trailer, the driver of which was operating his truck on a suspended license. Our client was rushed to the emergency room complaining of severe back and neck pain. He had undergone several back surgeries prior to this incident which just served to exacerbate the existing damage. As a result of the collision, our client was subject to spinal injections to treat the pain. Once those were found to be unsuccessful, he underwent an anterior cervical micro-discectomy. This procedure is … Continue reading
