March is National Brain Injury Awareness Month and it’s a great time to raise awareness about traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can be a life-altering or fatal injury to sustain. Many traumatic brain injuries occur due to blunt force trauma to the brain. When this happens, the brain shakes around inside the skull, which can cause bruising and bleeding to occur. In some cases, the brain swells due to the injury and because of the skull there is no place for the brain to go, causing pressure which can cause further damage to the brain tissue.


Brain injuries can also occur if a person’s brain is deprived of oxygen for an extended period of time, as can occur with some birth injuries or with near-drownings. Injury can also occur if the skull is pierced and the tissue inside is directly impacted.

Short-term rentals allow residents of Miami, Hollywood, and other South Florida communities to rent out part or all of their property. Visitors to South Florida can stay in a condo, vacation home, room in a house, or even on a boat, booking through platforms such as Airbnb and VRBO.



When things go wrong with a short-term rental, however, determining liability can be difficult and securing fair compensation can be challenging. Many short-term rental guests and hosts turn to Miami premises liability claims attorneys to sort out their situations.

Being attacked is terrifying and violence can leave mental and physical injuries for months or years. While the criminal justice system is involved in finding perpetrators of crimes and the criminal court system has processes for removing violent offenders from society and placing them in jail, many Marathon and South Florida survivors of assault today have mixed experiences with the criminal justice system and many are turning to the civil courts and personal injury claims for relief.

Assault is a serious crime in Hollywood and Florida and can lead to both criminal and civil charges. Assault has traditionally involved hitting, punching, physical violence, or threats of violence. However, with the current pandemic a new form of assault is being seen.


This form of assault includes people who deliberately cough at, spit on, or otherwise expose others to the COVID-19 virus, in some cases suggesting that they have novel coronavirus. A person may walk up to a front-line worker, health-care professional, or a stranger and cough, sneeze, or spit on them and then allege to have the virus.

He cares about helping and doing what is right for people and his community. And he is not afraid to fight against those who do wrong or against threats to our world. He is fluent in Spanish as well. Do yourself a favor and call him. Andy
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
