Types of Injuries On Religious Organization Grounds

Do you know how you would deal with an unexpected medical expense? In Hollywood and South Florida, an emergency hospital stay can cost you tens of thousands of dollars or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. A serious, permanent injury such as a back injury or head injury can cost $100,000 of medical expenses alone in the first year. Subsequent years can cost even more. And these costs do not take into consideration the at-home care, medications, outpatient care, and all the other care that you may need if you have suffered a severe injury.


Unexpected medical expenses are one of the leading causes of personal bankruptcy in Hollywood, South Florida and across the country. This is because even with medical insurance, car insurance, and other forms of coverage many people are unprepared for the sheer cost of medical care and other expenses resulting from a serious injury. Unless you are independently wealthy, you may not be able to come up with the tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars needed to replace lost income and pay for all the expenses of a serious medical condition. This situation can be even more dire if you do not have medical coverage or if you have inadequate coverage.

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
