Another boating death on Biscayne Bay

It’s as if it is almost becoming a “thing” for the city of Miami, another holiday weekend bringing another boating death, which makes seven so far in 2014. On Columbus Day weekend, a young woman was killed when one boat collided with another. The fatal crash occurred around 10 p.m. on Saturday when two boats collided about three and a half miles southwest of Biscayne Channel. Is reported that, a 63-foot Sea Ray yacht struck a 27-foot fishing boat. Flipping over the smaller vessel and dumping its three passengers into the water. 

The impact killed 29-year-old Maria Del Valle while leaving the other two injured. No one on the yacht was hurt. The deadly accident occurred even with the increased of safety measures from previous water accidents. Just as recent as July 4th there was a three-boat collision that killed four young locals, as well as, the tragic accident that involved one of Miami’s most notorious DJ Laz, when a 23-year-old security guard was sucked into the propellers of a speed boat that was driven by DJ Laz at the time. These events encouraged authorities to launch a special task force to crack down on drunken and dangerous boating, It's uncertain if alcohol played a role in Saturday's accident.

Slip and Falls

According to the National Safety Council, around 8.9 million visits to the emergency room are the result of a slip and fall accident. Those who are 55 and older are more prone to being victims of a slip and fall accident, resulting in more serious, life-threatening injuries. Of course, falling can happen to anyone no matter what age, so it’s important to be aware of the most common locations falls take place and to remember certain preventative tips that could help avoid a slip and fall accident. Many falls occur in doorways, ramps, cluttered hallways, uneven surfaces, areas prone to wetness and spills, areas with heavy traffic, stairs and ladders. Being aware of this information could help you prepare you if you happen to come across a situation where you need to walk through a cluttered hallway or an uneven surface. Being hyperaware of your surroundings and where you’re going will go a long way when it comes to slip and fall prevention. Other helpful tips like securing cords out of traffic areas, removing tripping hazards, checking walkways regularly for damage and cleaning up spills immediately are also very important if you want to avoid a slip and fall accident. If you or someone you know has been injured in a car crash or truck accident and are in need of an accident attorney in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Naples, Ocala, Orlando, Tampa, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Ft.

Justin Bieber Arrested After Car Crash

Justin Bieber has found himself in the spotlight yet again and not for another hit single but for another arrest! Earlier this week, Justin was arrested on assault and dangerous driving after his ATV crashed into a mini-van in Ontario. Justin has been seen riding his ATV before –but this time he, allegedly, was trying to enjoy a peaceful day when the paparazzi interrupted his outing. According to the investigation, the ATV collided with the mini-van (who was being driven by paparazzi) and both the driver and Justin Bieber “engaged in a physical altercation.” Because of this, Bieber was charged with assault and dangerous driving. 

It’s unclear whether Justin Bieber or the other driver could have avoided the collision, but it’s important to note that ATV accidents are not uncommon. A few years ago, it was estimated that around 400 deaths were related to ATV crashes and their resulting injuries, as well as about 108,000 emergency room treatments related to ATV’s. Many of those who drive them think its okay to go faster than they should or drive more carelessly but that’s not the case. Even if you’re not in a car you must always follow the rules set in place for the road. Not only can the one responsible be hurt, but those around them can get hurt or worse, sustain fatal injuries.
