Accident at Waterpark
A woman who allegedly suffered burns after walking on a hot pavement is suing a municipal water park. According to the personal injury lawyer’s claim presented on behalf of the victim, the business operator should have warned of a potentially dangerous condition to water park visitors. The victim, a diabetic suffering from a condition that had led to a loss foot sensation, suffered burns which led to infection and subsequent partial amputation. The victim’s lawyer claims that the accident could have been prevented if the water park had warned or covered the extremely hot walking surface. Much in the way bathmat are placed in hotel bathrooms or slippery when wet signs in fast-food restaurants, “caution hot floor” should have been posted.

DRY PALM TREE BRANCH CRUSHES TOURIST
A 46-year old tourist was crushed by a dry palm tree branch that fell from a 100 ft palm tree overlooking the pool of a quaint family hotel. The hotel pool accident victim was resting on a lounge chair when a 15-foot-long dried-out branch broke-off from an overhead palm tree. According to the accident victim’s family, the woman screamed as the branch came thundering down and landed on top of her. “I was in the pool when I heard a loud swooshing sound. At first, I thought it was an alligator or lizard in the bushes, but then I noticed something huge falling from the tree,” recalls the victim’s husband. Hotel staffed quickly assisted the woman and her multiple cuts, scrapes, & bruises throughout her entire body. She was later taken to a local hospital for further treatment to wounds and evaluation. Her husband in the meantime, has hired a Miami personal injury lawyer to file a premises liability claim for compensation. According to the victim’s husband,, the pool has several palm trees full of dry branches just waiting to fall. “I’m no lawyer, but I know that hotels need to make sure trees don’t fall on their guest’s heads while they’re sitting by the pool. My wife is lucky she’s not dead!” stated the victim’s angry husband.
Accidents that occur at resorts or private residences, fall under Premises Liability laws that hold property owners & operators accountable for injury or wrongful death that are the result of negligence.
A law firm in Miami has filed a lawsuit in the amount of $1 billion dollars on behalf of over fifty former Afro-American McDonald’s franchise owners. The suit claims that McDonald’s failed to provide the same equal opportunities as the white McDonalds franchise owners.
The Miami Firm states that the fast food giant acted with bias and racism by having black franchisees, six in all, open McDonald’s outlets in impoverished areas that were prone to violence. The attorneys handling the case claim that the McDonald’s Corporation has been discriminating Afro-American franchise owners since 1981, and holds the fast food giant legally accountable for economic losses equivalent to $5 million dollars per food outlet.
In return, a McDonald’s spokesperson stated that the allegations go against the principles that the company represents to communities worldwide. Meanwhile, the plaintiffs claim that McDonald’s pressured franchisees to set up in poor, dangerous neighborhoods by stating that another opportunity to obtain a franchising license may take years once rejected.

DAYCARE NEGLIGENCE LEADS TO WRONGFUL DEATH INSIDE VAN
BROWARD: A two-year-old child died after spending five hours alone aboard a hot and stuffy daycare van. According to reports, the driver and the daycare center both failed to abide by the safety protocols aimed at making sure children are safe and accounted for when being transported to and from their homes. Though the Broward Sheriff’s Office is treating the incident as manslaughter pending an investigation, a wrongful death claim will surely follow suit as the child’s family has openly expressed that someone must pay for this negligence. The Center, located at 3140 NW 21st Avenue in Oakland Park, was presented with 5-Class 1-violations by the Broward Sherriff’s Office, which apparently led to the center surrendering its operating license as it, according to reports, failed to take attendance when the children arrived to the daycare center on that day.
SAFETY PROTOCOLS FOR TRANSPORTING CHILDREN
Transporting children involves many ordeals through the number of risks involved getting children where they need to go. First & foremost, the vehicles used to transport them must be in proper mechanical condition & have responsible, licensed drivers that do not have a criminal record. Vehicles must be equipped with safety seats suitable for the child’s age-range. In the case of the Oakland daycare center, reports show that the child was not seated in a federally approved safety seat but was wearing a seat belt.
WHAT A DEDICATED PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER WILL DO FOR YOU
MIAMI: Personal injury accidents that require legal assistance and representation go beyond knowing the law (Tort Law), especially when dealing with insurance companies for compensation from personal injury accidents that lead to medical attention and economic losses. Personal injury accidents stemming from vehicle collisions, slip and fall incidents, dog attacks, premises liability claims, defective products or services, and wrongful death, will most often cast victims and loved-ones into a whirlwind of complications that stem beyond their concerns for physical, mental, and economic recovery. Many times, insurance companies will place obstacles down the road to recovery and resort to the common practice of offering accident victims unfair compensation settlements. Basically, and in layman’s terms, insurance companies like to make money not spend it, especially if the accident victim and/or family requires a large sum of money to compensate for losses incurred. However, it’s not all about money when a dedicated personal injury lawyer is involved. Though Jonathan Perazzo focuses on maximizing the accident victim’s recovery, he and his entire legal staff strive jointly to achieve their client’s 100% satisfaction.

NURSING HOME VISITORS IN MIAMI-DADE
Since March, Florida residents have been prohibited from seeing their relatives & loved ones residing in long-term care facilities. On Tuesday, Gov. Ron DeSantis stated that the time for that to change has come despite the growing number of COVID-19 cases flooding the state of Florida’s healthcare system and nursing home across Miami-Dade. The governor of Florida expressed understands the concerns of Florida residents having loved ones & relatives in nursing home must feel & stated the need for a light at the end of the tunnel. Thus, the Florida governor is planning policies that would allow people to visit nursing home & long-term facility residents when certain criteria apply. A new committee is being set up to examine policies that may allow visitors. According to a former Florida long-term care ombudsman, believes that isolation with no visitation is a major problem throughout Florida, both for the residents and loved ones because of concerns of negligent care or lack of information about state of their loved one. However, the former ombudsman agrees that now is not the time to allow visitors in nursing home or assisted living facilities in Miami-Dade or Florida. Meanwhile, facility operators are doubtful that now is the time, as the elderly are the most at risk of death from COVID-19 or related causes.

WHAT TO DO AFTER AN ACCIDENT IN A MIAMI PARKING LOT
INVOLVED IN A PARKING LOT ACCIDENT?
Busy parking lots can be just as dangerous as busy streets when negligent drivers are behind the wheel of their motor vehicles. Finding a parking space inside a busy parking lot can cause drivers to speed round corners as they race to pull into a parking spot before anyone else. This kind of reckless driving can easily lead to an accident that results in personal injury to pedestrians or vehicle damages to other drivers.
The first thing parking lot accident victims should do is check for injuries and then call the police to file an official report of the parking lot incident. This includes minor collisions or impacts which result in no evident physical harm or damage to vehicles.
It is important to have a formal report in the event of an insurance claim on behalf of any injured parties or those that have suffered losses from the parking lot accident. Following the accident and once a police report has been filed, the parking lot accident victim should seek medical care to evaluate any pain or discomfort stemming from the accident. Some neck or back injuries may take a few days to manifest themselves. That is why, a medical evaluation and report is important in the event of a future insurance claim for compensation to cover medical expenses brought on from the parking lot accident.
