In some cases, weather damage can blow a roof or shingles off the roof or cause structural damage to the roof itself.

Florida is no stranger to extreme weather, including hurricanes, floods, and severe storms. While news services keep residents of Hollywood, Homestead, and other communities aware of when bad weather is coming, we don’t just need to worry about safety during a storm.

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:

After a big disaster, it is quite common for everyone in the immediate area to have their lives permanently affected. Whether the disaster is a big fire, storm, or natural disaster, massive damage and multiple claimants involved can also complicate the insurance process.


If your home and property have been damaged in this type of incident, your very first priority will be to get to safety and to get any emergency medical help you need. You will also want to contact your insurer as quickly as possible to start the claims process. In addition, be sure to keep records and receipts of everything possible. This may mean taking photos of the damage, making an itemized list of all the damage, writing down the details of the incident which caused the damage, keeping receipts for hotels and every other expense you have incurred. Do not throw away any damaged property.

When you travel outside of Florida, you of course want to have a great trip. No one expects to suffer a personal injury or thinks about being in a truck accident when they’re outside of Hollywood or their community, but in fact vacation and travel injuries do occur.

When you are far from home, you may also not know insurance laws which can impact your claims and may be far from doctors, family members, and others you would normally trust and rely on in this type of situation.

If you have suffered a fire in your home, an injury on your property or have been injured in a car accident, you may need to deal with your insurance carrier. This can be daunting for most people, especially those who don’t have a background in insurance law, which is quite complex.


When you are paying for insurance or trying to sign up with a new insurance company, an insurance agent may be very helpful. However, once you need to make a claim, the process may change. Keep in mind that insurance companies make money by taking your premiums every month and by paying out to the least amount possible. The larger the profit margins, the happier their shareholders are and ultimately insurance companies are beholden to their shareholders. Continue reading →

It can be challenging to know when to hire a Hollywood personal injury attorney or a lawyer in your community.  However, knowing when to call on an attorney is crucial, since legal advice and representation at the right time can protect your interests and can ensure you get fair compensation.

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
