Miami-Insurance-Claim-Lawyer-300x201The Future of Space Travel Accident Litigation and Insurance Claims

The Florida Senate has given its approval to a measure that grants liability protection for suborbital space travel passengers and staff. This legislation aims to shield aerospace companies from civil lawsuits in case passengers are injured or killed during space travel. The recently approved SB 1318 would provide limited immunity from personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits if it passes the House and is signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis. The intention behind this legislation is to attract aerospace companies and create job opportunities in Florida.

A professor of law and director of the Global Space Law Center at Cleveland State University College of Law explained that the purpose of this legislation is to attract suborbital space flight industry, not companies like SpaceX, which primarily focuses on orbital and lunar missions. He highlights that suborbital and orbital space travel are distinct, with SpaceX using more advanced and powerful rockets like the Starship.


In Miami-Dade County, Florida, a van was struck by a falling tree during a storm on Friday afternoon, according to the police. Emergency personnel from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue and the police department promptly arrived at the scene in the Westview neighborhood. Fortunately, there were no occupants in the vehicle, and no injuries were reported. However, as of 5 p.m., the tree still rested on top of the van near the intersection of Northwest 119 Street and 27 Avenue. It is not uncommon for vehicles to sustain damage from fallen branches and occasionally trees due to the strong winds associated with tropical storms and hurricanes.

Tropical storms are a common occurrence in Florida due to its geographic location and warm waters. The state is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Gulf of Mexico to the west, and the Straits of Florida to the south. The warm waters provide the fuel needed for tropical storms to form, intensify, and potentially cause damage.

Tornado Rips Through Palm Beach Gardens

Palm Beach Gardens reported that the EF-2 tornado caused roof damage, minor structural damage to buildings, tree damage, and vehicle damage. However, there were no reported injuries in the area as a result of the storm. The tornado watch issued by FOX Weather covered over 11 million Florida residents on Saturday. A video showed a car being lifted off the ground and thrown while in the middle of a street. Palm Beach Gardens activated its Emergency Operations Center to address cleanup after the tornado hit. The National Weather Service (NWS) reported that the tornado started just east of Interstate 95, moved northeast across A1A, turned more north-northeasterly crossing PGA Blvd, and dissipated before reaching Juno Beach. The tornado lasted for about 11 minutes and traveled nearly 3 miles before it dissipated. The NWS also reported that the tornado destroyed a dry-cleaning business, collapsed light poles, and caused an electrical concrete pole to lean over. The City Engineer and Building official continue to do structural damage assessments. Another round of severe weather on Sunday morning prompted a Tornado Watch for more than 16 million people across the Florida Peninsula and the Keys.

Action After Storm Damage


There will be severe storms occurring on Thursday from Texas to Florida with damaging winds, large hail, and possible tornadoes. If there is storm damage, individuals can file for compensation through a personal injury lawyer. The severe weather will persist along the Gulf Coast for several days, affecting parts of southern Texas, southern Louisiana, and the Florida Panhandle. Some areas in Florida will also experience isolated severe thunderstorms. The cities with the highest risk of severe storms include Corpus Christi in Texas, New Orleans and Baton Rouge in Louisiana, and Jacksonville and Orlando in Florida. On Wednesday, there were already severe thunderstorms and large hail in Texas and Florida. The NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for certain areas until 1 p.m. EDT. There is a chance of low-end risk of severe storms over the weekend in parts of the central and eastern Gulf Coast states, which may result in damaging wind gusts, large hail, and even an isolated tornado.

On Monday, South Florida was drenched in rain and there were hardly any dry spots anywhere in town. The forecast indicates that there may be more rain throughout the week, which some locals are okay with since they have been waiting for a change in the weather as it has become too hot. The wet weather started on Sunday and has saturated some areas with at least two inches of water. This has affected visitors who were hoping to enjoy a sunny weekend at the beach. As a result, they had to make alternate plans such as going to a bar to have some drinks and food. The wet weather also likely contributed to a car accident along Interstate 95 near Ives Dairy. If you plan to go out, it is advisable to carry an umbrella and avoid flooded areas since South Florida often experiences heavy rains.
