Toxic mold is a fungal growth that can grow in damp, warm environments. It can grow on any solid surface, including furniture, walls, floors, and inside walls, too.

Bed bugs are small, brown insects that feed on human blood. They often hide in bedding, clothing, and other soft surfaces, coming out at night to feed. They can cause painful bites and emotional distress. In some cases, bites can cause allergic reactions.

College is a time for growth and freedom, and students are often excited about being on their own. Unfortunately, each year college students are seriously injured and even killed on campus. Sports injuries, slip and fall injuries, and traffic injuries tend to be most common. However, violence caused by hazing and assault also contributes to injuries on campus.

There are other forms of injury, too. Dorms are often older buildings and may have unsafe flooring, showers, stairways, and other building components. Head injuries, falls, fractures, burns, and other injuries can occur because of these problems. Even bedding provided by colleges has been called into question, after a study found that about 8,200 emergency room visits between 2006 and 2015 were linked to school bunk bed use.

For most people, a slip and fall bruises the ego and thankfully nothing else. But slip and fall incidents in Homestead are far from minor issues. Each year, they kill Americans and cause serious suffering and life-altering, permanent injuries. The elderly are most vulnerable in slip and fall injuries, because they are at risk of hip fractures and may also have conditions such as osteoporosis, which make falls more dangerous. However, anyone is at risk of slip and fall accidents.

No one attends a service or religious event expecting to be injured, yet this situation affects many people of faith every year.

Types of Injuries On Religious Organization Grounds

No matter what kind of faith service you are attending, you have a reasonable expectation to be safe and your church, mosque, or other place of worship has a duty to take reasonable steps to keep you safe. Despite this, there are many types of injuries that happen at places of worship:

Your favorite stores in North Miami have a greater obligation than just making sure you enjoy great bargains on your must-have items. All stores, whether they’re grocery stores, clothing shops, bookstores, or your favorite place for antiques or games, have a duty of care to visitors. This means they have a duty to take reasonable steps to keep you safe. If they fail to do this and you’re injured as a result, you may have a legal claim and may be able to pursue compensation for the losses you suffer.

End-of-year sales are here, and that can mean crowds in stores and a greater risk of hazards. Crowded shopping areas can mean a greater risk of slip and fall and trip and fall injuries if stores are not diligent in clearing store areas. It can also mean a greater risk of parking lot accidents in Hollywood as well as assaults, thefts, and crowd-related injuries.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
