NURSING HOMES AND ASSISTED LIVING CENTERS DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

Geriatric-Lawyer-Miami-300x300
The United States is new to the complexities of dealing with a major pandemic like COVID-19. Nevertheless, negligence within nursing homes and assisted living facilities in Florida have always been a major concern for operators, staff, family members, and not to mention residents, who deserve and should be provided with quality care.

As everyone knows, the coronavirus places elderly residents at a high risk of suffering serious life-threatening conditions. Thus, all necessary safety precautions must be taken, and strict preventive measures applied to keep nursing home residents safe. Sadly, COVID-19 spreads very quickly from person to person, and within populated common spaces, contracting the coronavirus in a nursing home is likely when the virus goes undetected. Nursing home operators and staff members can unknowingly spread the virus and residents can fall victim to neglect by either not receiving proper care or medical attention, or simply testing positive for COVID-19 in a nursing home. When a nursing home resident becomes infected with coronavirus as a result of negligence by nursing home staff or nursing home operators, the victim may be able to receive compensation for bodily injury or mental harm and any losses sustained from medical expenses. An experienced Personal Injury lawyer may be able to help determine grounds for a Personal Injury Insurance Claim for compensation for nursing home residents or family members.

GROCERIES-300x225WHAT TO KNOW AND HOW TO STAY SAFE

As Miami-Dade and Broward County shop and restaurant owners look to get back to business, so too are consumers eager to get back to spending, with everyone else just looking to get back to normal. However, that normal we once innocently took for granted, may sadly be but a treasured memory. Fortunately, adjusting to today’s social and individual reality will not require a crash course on life on another planet, but one can surely say that we are taking on a much futuristic demeanor as we walk down the street, drive in our cars, stroll through a mall, dine at a restaurant, or sit in a bar. Regardless, safety and prevention will be the driving force behind these changes, as COVID-19 sets the stage for the new normal.

Florida Department of Health Launches COVID-19 APP

Governor Ron DeSantis is moving forward with a phased reopening plan throughout Florida. The Florida Department of Health introduced an app (The StrongerThanC19) that allows easy-access to the Community Action Survey, which officials believe can help lower the spread of the COVID-19 in Florida. According to the recently published Community Action Survey Report,  many Florida residents don’t respect safety measures aimed at preventing the coronavirus spread among urban populations such as Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and other cities throughout Miami-Dade and Broward; the hardest hit counties by COVID-19.

THE CORONAVIRUS AND YOUR CONCERN

As the Coronavirus (nCoV) looms over Asia and spreads across Europe, it is alarmingly making its way towards the USA. With some 82,000 people infected worldwide and 2770 fatal cases since the outbreak was publicly reported on January 22, 2020, it is almost impossible to escape the ancient plague-like presence and the concerns the Coronavirus casts upon today’s modern world.

In this article, the Perazzo Law Firm aims to shed light on the Coronavirus and what it means to you for the well-being and safety of your family and loved ones.

MOPED-300x200The Perazzo Law Firm shares insight on accidents involving mopeds and scooters in Miami.

Big cities are known for cars and trucks languishingly creeping along avenues, highways, and streets.  Despite its colorful cement setting and ocean backdrop, Miami is no different, as moving about the city and its surrounding suburbs can be frustrating and costly. But what about getting around on a Moped? A New York-based company called Revel, believes that many Miami locals, visitors, and tourists will hop on a moped instead of hopping in an Uber or Lyft to get from A to B. Through an agreement with the Miami Parking Authority, Revel unveiled its rentable moped plan in late December with 750 units and expects to compete aggressively against ride share service providers and vehicle rental agencies.

Through an app, users will be able to rent a moped in all Miami neighborhoods for the price of $0.29 per minute and a $1 fee, which makes it a highly affordable means of transportation. However, those looking for two-wheeled transportation options can choose from a vast variety of transportation options such as scooters, which can cost anywhere from $60-$85 per day. In fact, there is a wide range of commuting options to choose from at present, which include scooters, Segways, Lime electric scooters, electric cars, and the ever-humble bicycle.

The hotel pool accident victim was resting on a lounge chair when a 15-foot-long dried-out branch broke-off from an overhead palm tree. According to the accident victim’s family, the woman, a mother of three, screamed as the branch came thundering down and landed on top of her. “I was in the pool when I heard a loud swooshing sound. At first, I thought it was a wild animal like an alligator or lizard in the bushes, but then I noticed something huge falling from the tree,” recalls the victim’s husband. Hotel staffed quickly assisted the woman by tending to the multiple cuts, scrapes, and bruises extending throughout her entire body. She was later taken to a local hospital for further treatment to wounds and evaluation. Her husband in the meantime, has contacted the service of a trusted personal injury lawyer in Miami to help with a possible premise’s liability claim for compensation. According to the hotel accident victim’s husband, a 52-year-old schoolteacher, the pool has at least three very tall palm trees, many of them full of dry branches just waiting to fall. “I’m no lawyer but I know that hotels and motels need to make sure trees don’t fall on their guest’s heads while they’re sitting by the pool. My wife is lucky to be alive, but she’ll never sit by a pool the same way again!” stated the victim’s angry husband.
