We have seen unprecedented rates of incarceration and overdose over the past 40 years. Our healthcare costs have skyrocketed and Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is now the #1 cause of death for people under 30, and quickly on the way to becoming the #1 cause of death for all Americans.

Believe it or not, our firm has handled trucking cases where the trucking company’s lawyers or corporate representatives can actually be seen in photographs that were taken by law enforcement personnel at the scene of a truck crash within just hours of a truck crash.
While the government and the heavy truck industry have made strides over the years in better protecting truck drivers/occupants of heavy trucks in certain crash scenarios - through the implementation of seat-belts, airbags, crash-avoidance technology, occupant cab structural integrity, and other measures - there remains a high risk of truck driver and truck occupant deaths due to explosion and fire when the truck’s side-mounted fuel tanks are ruptured in a crash and the large quantities of fuel are ignited.
The Johnny O. Foundation sponsors National Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness Month, which is observed during the month of September, in order to raise awareness about the causes, and prevention, of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). TBIs are widely misunderstood and are far more common than most realize.

On August 13, 2018 an Alachua County jury awarded, our brave client, Rebekka Trahan, more than $4.6 million for what she said was more than a decade-and-a-half’s worth of mistreatment.
As outlined in our complaint, Trahan was molested by her father from the time she was 8 years old until she left her parent’s home at 24. The filing alleges that Trahan’s older brother, Scott F. Mulholland, also abused her from the time she was 13 years old until her departure.
