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.

Research has shown that women are far more likely to be misdiagnosed when compared with men. Women are 50% more likely than men to be misdiagnosed if they have a heart attack and 30% more likely than men to be misdiagnosed after a stroke. In addition, conditions that affect women, such as fibroids or endometriosis, can take ten years or longer to accurately diagnose, even though these diseases affect one in ten women.

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.

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.

Ghost kitchens are popping up everywhere in Hollywood, Miami, and across South Florida.

Companies offer ghost kitchens to multiple users and advertise their facilities are stocked with appliances, counter space, and everything else chefs need to prepare their culinary creations. They may have loading bays for food trucks, kitchens lighted for YouTube cooking channels, and other features to help chefs prepare their food.

Many companies offering these facilities on a time-share basis offer insurance and security features, but what happens if you are injured, either as a customer or a worker in these kitchens? Since this business is still fairly new, getting fair compensation for your injuries may be challenging. You may wish to consult with a Miami premises liability attorney or workplace injury claims attorney.

Short-term rentals through sites such as Airbnb are popular in Coral Springs, Miami, and other cities in South Florida. Some travelers like them because they offer less-expensive stays when compared with hotels. Others like the unique properties and home amenities, such as kitchens, available through short-term rentals.

However, there is a trade-off. While hotels and official accommodations are legally obligated to maintain certain standards of safety and cleanliness, short-term rentals are under no such official obligation. Studies and investigative reports have shown that a significant portion of short-term rentals lack safety basics such as first aid kits, smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, and carbon monoxide detectors.
