When an emergency happens and medical care is required, we go to the hospital. We simply assume that the nearest hospital will be clean, sterile and staffed with great doctors, nurses and technicians that will work to ensure we make a quick and effective recovery. However, a recent grading of South Florida hospitals by the Leapfrog Group, a national leader and advocate in hospital transparency, has revealed an alarming reality – not all hospitals are created the same.

Demand for cruising has increased 62 percent over the last 10 years and it is estimated that 25.8 million passengers are expected to take a cruise in 2017 alone. While these numbers have increased significantly from just a few short years ago, safety aboard these ships has, in many cases, not improved correspondingly.

With school beginning in Miami-Dade County, it’s time to reinforce how important it is to wear a seat belt – no matter where you are sitting in a vehicle. According to many safety experts, we’re careless when it comes to buckling up, especially in the rear seats of a car. A new study released a short time ago finds that rear seat passengers can become human missiles in an accident, injuring not just themselves, but those in the front seats as well.
One of the most difficult decisions an accident victim has to make is to whether they should seek legal recourse. While there is no shortage of lawyers across Miami-Dade, Broward and Naples that will make unfathomable promises in an effort to sign you up as a new client – making the most informed decision can be difficult considering all the noise you need to navigate. The simple fact is that not all lawyers and law firms are equal. Who you choose to represent your interests can have a huge impact on the outcome of your case. Before you ever hire a personal injury attorney, these are some of the most important questions you should ask.
It’s clear that distracting driving is dangerous. We all know it’s happening around us. We see it on US1, I-95, I-75 and suburban streets from Naples to Miami. But exactly how many people are looking at their phones while driving? Is it just young millennials or older people as well?
A recent study from driving analytics company Zendrive shows that basically everyone is on their phone when behind the wheel. Using sensor data from more than 3 million drivers and 5.6 billion miles of trips, Zendrive found that drivers are using their phones on 88 percent of their trips. Turns out the average driver spends 3.5 minutes on the phone per one hour trip, a statistic that is compounded by the fact that just a 2-second distraction increases your risk of being in a crash by 20 percent.
