Buses are used in many environments. In Florida theme parks, buses are used to transport tourists to attractions. Around cities, they are used as mass transit. Church groups, schools, airports, and other organizations all rely on these motor vehicles to transport people.

Yet while bus accidents are less common than car accidents, these collisions do happen. Common types of bus accidents in Cooper City and the surrounding area include:

Women may visit an OB-GYN in Homestead for many reasons related to pregnancy, fertility, and other health issues. While the goal with these visits is to help women, some women face misdiagnosis and medical malpractice which results in injury and trauma.

Misdiagnosis happens for many reasons. In some cases, such as ovarian cancer, there are simply not the advanced and reliable tests available to ensure accurate diagnosis and the tests that do exist – such as blood tests – are not always suggested. There is also some evidence that medical schools do not always emphasize women’s health as a separate entity and bias as well as lack of research into conditions affecting women can also impact diagnosis.

New research in spinal cord injury treatment is being developed all the time, and recent breakthroughs are especially promising for patients. One recent development in spinal cord implants has allowed a man with a severe spinal cord injury to walk again.

Currently, the development team is still conducting trials.

Another breakthrough in research is also important, although for a different reason. A study published by a team of Michigan researchers has found that patients with spinal cord injury had an 80% heightened risk of developing anxiety, depression, and other psychological disorders when compared with individuals who didn’t have a spinal cord injury. Researchers in the study concluded that more mental health support and better early detection of such conditions are needed for spinal cord injury patients.

Homestead residents who attend a church, synagogue, or other place of worship turn to their faith to help them grow spiritually with others. No one attends a service or religious event expecting to be injured, yet this situation affects many people of faith every year. Whether you are attending a place of worship for a religious event or regular service, a social event, for volunteer work, or for another cause, if you have been injured by the organization’s negligence, you may have a claim.

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:

It is estimated there are 24.9 million victims of human trafficking around the world, and in January the world raises awareness of this problem.

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.

In Oakland Park and across South Florida, dog owners enjoy spending time with their pets. Yet in Florida in 2019, 1,268 claims were made to insurers resulting from dog bites.
