Many pet owners know that there could be potential risks for animal attacks. Therefore, it is always a wise choice to ensure that any children are supervised when around dogs or other animals. Unfortunately animal bites are a common occurrence, and serious attacks could lead to individuals suffering serious injuries. These injuries could also potentially lead to legal claims.

Reports indicated that the boy was at a family friend's house with his mother at the time of the incident. Authorities suspect that the mother was inside the house sleeping when the 22-month-old child was attacked by a dog on the premises. It was unclear what may have caused the attack.

Accident leaves Florida motorcyclist with serious injuries

Motorcycle accidents are common events. These incidents often and easily lead to serious injuries as motorcyclists have little protection against other vehicles and outside hazards. If individuals do suffer injuries due to being involved in such an accident, they may face considerable difficulties. As a result, they could potentially file a legal claim against the individual or individuals considered at fault.

One man in Florida may be exploring his options after a recent accident. Reports stated that the man was traveling north when a woman driving a van made a left turn from the southbound turn lane.

Fatal car accident takes place in Florida

After a car crash takes place, it may take investigators some time before they are able to definitively determine what caused the accident. When information about a car accident is not immediately available, the families of any victims of the incident may find themselves putting their lives on hold as they await answers. In many cases, the information resulting from an investigation plays a substantial role in legal claims filed as a result of crashes.

Claims potentially filed after a recent accident in Florida may hinge on such information.

Gaining such knowledge may help them better handle the difficult circumstances they are likely to face.

One family may be looking into such options after a recent crash in Florida. Reports stated that a 69-year-old man was driving a van north at an intersection when a car traveling west did not stop at a stop sign. As a result, the car crashed into the van.

Fatal Florida accident may warrant wrongful death claim

Drunk drivers cause serious accidents numerous times every year. Some of those incidents prove fatal, and families and friends can be horrifically affected by the sudden and devastating losses.

A recent accident in Florida may lead to such legal action. Reports stated that a man driving a car failed to stop at a red light. As a result, his vehicle crashed into another car. The second car was carrying a 34-year-old woman and a 36-year-old man. Authorities believed that the man driving the first vehicle was under the influence at the time of the crash. 

Florida motorcycle accidents: 1 killed, other seriously injured

When drivers attempt to make left turns, they often have to cross other lanes of traffic. As a result, these simple maneuvers could potentially cause serious accidents if the turning vehicle travels in front of another vehicle. These circumstances often contribute to motorcycle accidents that may occur due to a driver overlooking the smaller vehicle.

Such an accident recently took place in Florida. Reports stated that a motorcycle was heading east with two occupants and had a green light as it approached an intersection. A pickup truck that was traveling west also had a green light but attempted to make a left turn. This turn brought the truck into the motorcycle's path, and a collision resulted. The individuals on the motorcycle were both reported as being 19 years old, and the driver of the pickup was 52 years old.

Florida car accident negatively affects family involved

Personal injury and wrongful death claims are options that may be available to individuals who have been in serious accidents. A car accident that results as the fault of another individual and leads to the fatal or serious injury of innocent parties could result in the negatively affected parties filing civil claims against the individual considered responsible. Successful claims could help victims move forward. 

One family in Florida may be looking into more information about such claims after a recent crash.

Families of Florida crash victims may consider wrongful death

Though roadways are divided so drivers can travel in opposite directions, there is no guarantee that a vehicle will not cross into the incorrect lane. This factor is the cause of many car accidents that result in fatal injuries. In many cases, when a family loses a loved one under such circumstances, filing a wrongful death claim may be worth their consideration.
