Florida Elder Law and Abuse Attorneys
Florida has one of the largest populations of elderly Americans. Citizens and government entities have recognized the severity of elder abuse within Florida and are taking action to ensure seniors stay informed and receive access to protective resources in a time of need. The senior statistics in Florida show how much this population is contributing to the economy, according to the Department of Elder Affairs.
- Retirement Industry is Florida’s second largest economic sector
- Contributes to 50 percent of the new home construction
- Give an annual sum of $3.5 billion to charitable donations
- Has the spending power of $135 billion
- $2.8 billion net tax benefit after services rendered
- Pay over $1 billion in local school taxes
- Total of 4.2 million seniors in Florida – largest voting bloc in the state

Trucking accidents are different than automobile accidents. There are state and federal guidelines that must be followed when filing a claim for a truck accident. Last year in Florida, there were 214 fatal truck accidents according to the National Highway Traffic Administration. This is an alarming amount of fatalities and the Florida law offices of Garcia, Artigliere & Medby are here to assist.
Truck accidents can happen from various situations–it can be weather-related, poor road conditions, unexpected traffic, speeding, and inexperienced drivers, just to name a few. The courts will determine which entity, the driver, the trucking company, the loading company, and the government is responsible for which percentage. Each accident has different applicable laws that require legal help.
A commercial truck has a gross vehicle weight of 10,000 pounds. When a semi, big rig, tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler, or log truck is fully loaded it can easily weigh more than 80,000 pounds.
