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?

You may wish to consult with a Miami premises liability attorney or workplace injury claims attorney.

Many employees who work in nursing homes in Hollywood, Homestead, and other Florida communities are concerned right now.

In addition, some people who have the COVID-19 virus are asymptomatic. They can pass the illness onto others because they do not know they are unwell, allowing the illness to spread rapidly. Since nursing home staff work closely with residents, they are especially at risk.

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
