Soon, new distracted driving laws will go into effect in Florida. If you drive on Tampa-area roads, you may have noticed distracted driving for yourself, as it is quite common. People engage in all kinds of distracting behaviors while driving, including putting on makeup, adjusting the radio or even talking to a passenger.

Although falling in a busy supermarket is an embarrassing experience, the real consequences can be life-changing. Millions of people nationwide, including Florida, live with chronic back pain after slip-and-fall accidents. Slips and trips can cause torn rotator cuffs, fractured wrists or hips, traumatic brain injuries and back injuries, all of which could lead to chronic pain or permanent disabilities. Property owners are responsible for keeping premises free of hazards that could cause falls.
