What are the federal requirements for securing truck cargo?

If you are like most in Marion County, then your concerns over the dangers that semi-trucks and tractor trailers present out on the road begin and end with the driver. Have you considered, however, that the cargo that he or she is hauling could present just as a great a danger? When it comes to truck cargo, you may only be concerned about the potential of being exposed to hazardous materials. Yet just about any cargo can become hazardous if it begins falling from a truck while on the road. Perhaps the most frightening fact about the risk poorly-secured cargo presents is that it does not require an accident to become dangerous to you and other drivers.

The levels of loss of consortium in Florida

While the financial support lost when one loses a loved one in Ocala can be devastating, the emotional void that person leaves behind can be just as difficult to overcome. Nothing can replace the role that person served in the lives of his or her family and friends. If his or her death was due to negligence, those most impacted could have a strong claim for compensation to help make the pain and suffering that they are now forced to endure somewhat easier.

Examining the language of liability waivers

Many Marion County residents come to us here at the King Law Firm concerned about the limitations that liability waivers place on their ability to seek compensation for injuries to their kids. If you signed a waiver prior to your child engaging in a potentially dangerous activity, you may feel as though you have no way to hold an activity provider responsible for its negligent actions. However, whether or not a liability waiver is enforceable depends largely on the language that it includes.

When do motorcycles have the right-of-way?

As a motorcyclist, you no doubt have been happy to see more signs springing up in Marion County and across the rest of the U.S. encouraging automobile drivers to watch out for motorcycles. Yet even as awareness increases, there is still much confusion about whether motorcyclists or motorists have the right-of-way on Florida’s roads. Following motorcycle accidents, many drivers often claim that the motorcycles involved suddenly pulled out in front of them or that it was their turn to go at an intersection. Understanding what right-of-way laws are in the state may help to dispel this confusion, as well as keep you safer while on the road. If and when a collision does occur, such knowledge may also help support your claim that the motorist was at fault.
