Alleged drag race results in fatal Miami accident

Racing on public roads endangers the safety of drivers and passengers of other vehicles as well as those participating in the reckless, negligent activity. Collisions resulting from illegal racing can result in severe injuries. At worst, they can end in fatal accidents, costing innocent lives.

How many US veterans are deported?

United States Immigration and Customs enforcement does not keep track of how many veterans who have served in the U.S. military are deported. However, one former service member says the number rises into the thousands. He is a military veteran who was deported to Mexico who runs a home near Tijuana that he set up to support deported military veterans.

Driver sought in Old Dixie Highway car accident

A hit-and-run accident can leave a victim not only in serious condition, but unable to pursue damages from the responsible party. Leaving the scene of a fatal car accident is a crime, and a driver who does so will be sought by police. With their own expertise and often with the help of the general public, hit-and-run drivers often are brought to justice. This can be helpful to accident victims, who have rights to seek restitution for the suffering and damages they have endured.

Cuba eases travel restrictions

Cuban President Raul Castro announced earlier this week that the country will ease travel restriction for Cubans beginning in January. The government made the announcement Tuesday in the Communist newspaper Granma. The announcement indicates that beginning in January, Cuba will list requirements that Cubans obtain an exit visa and a letter of invitation from a person in the destination country before being granted permission to depart the country. Those restrictions were put in place in 1961.

ATV accident results in Miami man's death

A busy North Miami street is perhaps the last place one would expect to see an all-terrain vehicle. Perhaps that had something to do with a recent ATV collision that resulted in the death of the vehicle's rider. The car accident between the ATV and a passing minivan occurred near the corner of NE 149th Street and 6th Avenue, at the driveway for a Walgreens.

Microsoft asks Congress to add more H-1B visas to cap--with higher fees

There can be little dispute that efforts to achieve meaningful immigration reform in Congress have been stalling. Commentators and immigration advocates have proposed modifications to U.S. immigration law to create more H-1B visas in recent years. Another hot-button topic has been visas for people who graduate with degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Florida doctor accused of performing bad liposuctions

The public expects doctors to meet the minimum standard of care that applies to their area of practice. When a doctor fails to meet that standard due to negligence, injured patients may be able to sue for medical malpractice.

Undocumented immigrant law school grad's case heard in Florida high court

A Florida law student jumped through all the hoops before being allowed to sit for the Florida bar examination. He got through law school and applied to sit for the bar. He disclosed that he was an undocumented immigrant, and even received a waiver to sit for the bar exam. That waiver was needed due to a 2008 Florida law that requires bar exam applicants to show proof of residency or citizenship.

Supreme Court to consider medical malpractice reimbursement law

A medical malpractice suit that will be heard by the United States Supreme Court may set a landmark precedent for how states are reimbursed for Medicaid expenses. Florida is one of several states that could be dramatically affected by the court's ruling next year on how states claim a percentage of medical malpractice settlement funds that victims and their families are awarded.
