South Florida Child Motor Vehicle Lawyers
Attorney Advocates Promote Child Safety in Vehicles
As child safety attorneys, we have seen many cases where the life of a child could have been saved had they been in the proper child safety restraint. The "forgotten child" is a term given to these types of cases where children are catastrophically injured or killed in a motor vehicle accident because the seatbelt fails to protect them. Even though children are expected to ride in the backseat of vehicles, the seat belts are not designed to properly restrain or protect them in foreseeable collisions. In fact, most vehicle manuals indicate that the back seat of a vehicle is not designed to provide protection to a child in the event of a crash.
Our attorneys have litigated cases against auto manufacturers for failing to provide the proper protection for children in a vehicle. If your child has suffered a catastrophic or fatal injury because the seatbelt failed to provide adequate protection, we have the resources to tackle the auto industry and hold them accountable.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children from 3 to 14 years old. These fatalities can be a result of multiple factors, including the negligence of another driver or a manufacturing defect such as a failed airbag or seatbelt. If your child was injured in an auto accident, our attorneys will advocate so that your child has access to the care and treatment required for recovery.

The Devastating Impact of Motorcycle Accidents: Helping Families Recover
Because motorcycle riders have little to protect them, their injuries tend to be life-changing, disabling and, too often, fatal. Our attorneys understand both the law and the medical science of motorcycle accident injuries. We work with experts in a variety of fields to determine precisely what caused your accident and to determine the true, lasting impact on the victim's life.
We help injured individuals and their families recover from the most serious personal injuries, including:
- Severe Burn Injuries
- Neck and Back Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Fractures, Bone and Joint Injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Our attorneys also guide the families of fatal accident victims through the aftermath of the motorcycle accident. When an accident victim dies due to a traumatic head injury or other fatal injury in a motorcycle accident, we pursue a wrongful death lawsuit in order to recover the resources necessary for the surviving family.
Motorcyclists know better than anyone else does that riding a motorcycle involves more risk than driving a car. For that reason, motorcyclists are generally cautious on the roads and it is uncommon for a rider to be at fault in a motorcycle accident. We help motorcyclists overcome this stigma.
Our Consumer Justice Attorneys work tirelessly to help ensure justice and a stable future for the victims of motorcycle accidents and for their families. We help individual citizens level the playing field against powerful corporations and insurance companies.

Florida Trucking Accident Attorneys: Preparing Families for the Future
Tragic and preventable, trucking accidents cause life-changing injuries that are often fatal. A small passenger vehicle is simply no match for the sheer mass of a semi truck. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) outline strict rules that — if followed — should prevent almost all trucking accidents from ever occurring. Many trucking accidents follow from violations of the FMCSRs.
At Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC, our Consumer Justice Attorneys are dedicated to helping the victims of trucking accidents achieve justice after they find themselves pitted against powerful corporate opponents. We represent clients nationwide, and we co-counsel cases throughout Florida and the nation.
If you or any members of your family suffered serious injuries in a trucking accident, we have the resources to help. To meet with one of our attorneys, call 877-515-7955 or contact us online. We do not charge for initial consultations.
Working With Experts — Conducting Thorough Investigations
Trucking accidents tend to be relatively complex in comparison to other types of motor vehicle accidents. Injuries are generally more severe, requiring extensive medical evaluations and treatment. Additionally, we work with experts to reconstruct the accident and to investigate the history of the truck, the trucking company and the truck driver to determine whether a FMCSR violation caused the accident.
In fact, many trucking and tractor-trailer accidents are caused by such violations, including:
- Driver fatigue caused by working over hours
- Driver inattentiveness
- Insufficient maintenance including bad brakes, steering problems or defective tires
- Insufficient driver background checks/hiring incompetent or unqualified drivers
- Improper loading or over-loading of cargo
- Learn more about FMCSRs at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Web site
While trucking accidents are preventable, the damage they cause is often irreversible. We help clients adjust to new lives and futures dealing with traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and amputation. We also represent grieving family members whose loved ones were lost in a wrongful death accident. We have represented clients injured while driving, while walking and even while working in road construction crews.
Every aspect of your case will be handled personally by a motivated attorney who is dedicated to helping you achieve justice. Our knowledge, resources and dedication will help you level the playing field against a powerful corporate opponent like an insurance company or trucking company.
If you or a loved one was involved in a trucking accident, you can meet with one of our Consumer Justice Attorneys by calling 877-515-7955 or by contacting us online. All initial consultations are free of charge.
