EL CORONAVIRUS ENTRE LA COMUNIDAD HISPANA

COVID-19-Miami-Lawyer-300x300La Comunidad Hispana ha sido una de las comunidades más castigada por el coronavirus en Miami y todas las ciudades grandes de los Estados Unidos. El numero de infectados supera a la comunidad afroamericana, que lidera en números de casos fatales por contagio del coronavirus. En Miami, la firma de Perazzo Law informa a los residentes hispanos en Miami sobre algunos posibles asuntos legales vinculados con el contagio del coronavirus y como tratarlos.

La negligencia en el tratamiento del coronavirus en un infectado entre la comunidad hispana puede causar daños físicos que pueden llevar a la mortalidad. Aunque el sistema hospitalario puede estar superado y bajo una demanda extrema, pueden existir casos de negligencia por parte de otros individuos o responsables.

THE NEW NORMAL – MASKS, GLOVES, SHIELDS, AND MORE…

OPEN FOR BUSINESS?

COVID-19-Miami-Lawyer-300x300The massive spread of the coronavirus and the effects on modern life will soon take a futuristic twist as people will look more like space travelers than common Earth folk. With masks, sneeze shields, gloves, and social distancing measures to be strictly enforced, human contact will be limited to those residing in the same household or those sharing the same bed.

Wrongful Death Resulting from the Coronavirus

The rapid spread of the deadly coronavirus has affected the lives of billions of people from all walks of life, as millions of individuals ranging from business executives to prison inmates have witnessed the infectious wrath of COVID-19. With infectious diseases such as SARS,  though genetically related to each other but very different, timely detection and treatment are fundamental to survival and recovery. Sadly, COVID-19 has devastated the most sophisticated healthcare systems in the most highly developed nations around the world. In the USA, the coronavirus has claimed over 42,000 lives and this number is expected to rise considerably as the virus spreads among cities and communities.

The Perazzo Law Firm raises the following questions:

LOS RIESGOS DE LOS ANCIANOS EN HOGARES Y GERIÁTRICOS

GERIATRICOS Y COVID-19

Ante la amenaza del COVID-19, cuidar a los ancianos en hogares geriatricos requiere una atención especial y dedicada para que puedan sobrevivir estos días de la manera más cómoda posible. Lamentablemente, las luchas que enfrentan las personas mayores y los residentes de hogares de ancianos a veces pueden ser una tarea tanto física como mentalmente ardua. Aunque muchos encuentran consuelo y cuidado, otros a veces pueden encontrar situaciones de negligencia e irregularidades intencionales. Hoy en día, la grave amenaza de COVID-19, también conocido como coronavirus, puede conducir a medidas que requieren atención especial adicional para los residentes en hogares de ancianos. En Florida hay unos 700 hogares de ancianos que operan en Florida, y Miami Dade y Broward tienen muchas instalaciones pobladas. En la actualidad, los hospitales y los trabajadores de la salud están siendo llevados al límite en la lucha contra la infección por coronavirus a medida que los funcionarios se apresuran a encontrar formas de tratar en consecuencia con COVID-19. El alcance del alcance de la Florida y los funcionarios estatales es tan vasto que las áreas pueden ser descuidadas; y uno de estos es el cuidado de ancianos en hogares de ancianos. En Miami, se están realizando esfuerzos para brindar alivio a los residentes mayores de hogares de ancianos, muchos de los cuales pueden ser víctimas de negligencia que puede provocar lesiones personales, como úlceras de decúbito en residentes con cama. En los hogares de ancianos, es posible que parte del personal de atención médica personal asignado a los residentes que requieran atención especial no pueda realizar esa tarea, por lo tanto, el residente del hogar de ancianos puede desarrollar úlceras de decúbito en caso de que esté acostado o en una silla de ruedas. Aunque los accidentes automovilísticos, los accidentes de peatones y los accidentes cotidianos pueden detenerse durante la pandemia de coronavirus, la atención médica y la vivienda en centros privados, como enfermería, rehabilitación física o mental, o incluso instituciones correccionales enfrentarán tiempos difíciles a medida que el coronavirus se propague a sus instalaciones (ver Accidentes relacionados con coronavirus).

NURSING-HOME-LAWYER-300x194THE ELDERLY & COVID-19 NURSING HOME NEGLIGENCE

Taking care of the elderly in nursing homes requires special and dedicated care to enable them to live out their days as comfortably as possible. Sadly, the struggles the senior citizens and nursing home residents face can sometimes be a both physically and mentally arduous task. Though many find comfort and care, others may sometimes encounter situations of negligence and intentional wrongdoing. Today, the severe threat of COVID-19, otherwise known as the coronavirus, can lead to measures requiring extra special attention for the elderly in nursing homes. In Florida there are some 700 nursing homes operating in Florida, with Miami Dade and Broward having many populated facilities. At present, hospitals and healthcare workers are being pushed to the limit fighting the coronavirus infection as officials rush to find ways of dealing accordingly with COVID-19. The extent of the scope of Florida and state officials is so vast that areas may be neglected; and one of these is care for the elderly in nursing homes. In Miami, efforts are on the way to bring relief to elderly residents of nursing homes, many of whom may fall victim to negligence that can lead to personal injuries such as bedsores in bed-stricken residents. In nursing homes, some personal healthcare staff assigned to residents requiring special attention may not be able to perform that task, hence the nursing home resident may develop bedsores in the event he/she is bed-stricken or in a wheelchair. Though car accidents, pedestrian accidents and everyday accidents may come to a stand still during the coronavirus pandemic, private center healthcare and housing, such as nursing, physical or mental rehabilitation, or even correctional institutions will be facing tough times as the coronavirus spreads into their facilities (See Coronavirus Related Accidents).

THE ELDERLY AND COVID-19

THE CORONAVIRUS & CRUISE SHIPS IN FLORIDA

cruise-ship-1360757-640x360-1-300x169Reports of the coronavirus making its way aboard cruise ships and into harbors around the world have been a part of the COVID-19 pandemic since the outbreak; and ships carrying thousands of passengers continue to reach Florida shores. This past Thursday, two ships belonging to Holland America Cruise Line  arrived at Fort Lauderdale in Broward County with dozens of reported cases, while Coral Princess docked in Port Miami with two deceased on board. Situations like this raise questions as to the role of cruise line officials and governmental agencies to protect the well-being of passengers, crews, and residents of the ports where these cruise ships disembark.

The most recent ship to dock was the Coral Princess and the mayor of Miami-Dade, Carlos Gimenez, stated that five passengers were taken to local hospital while 38 crew members and 27 passengers remain on-board to receive medical attention to treat their symptoms. The other 1800 passengers and crew will gradually be able to leave for their homes on Sunday aboard specially provided buses. According to Gimenez, those allowed to disembark the Coral Princess must wear masks and remain isolated for two weeks in their homes. The cruise line has charter flights arranged for those needing to travel to faraway destinations within the U.S., Europe and Asia. Gimenez warned that Port Miami may not be able to house other ships coming into port seeking healthcare as hospital system begins to feel the full effect of the coronavirus pandemic. The Coral Princess had traveled to Barbados from Chile with its passengers unable to touch land since March 13. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta is helping with blood samples of passengers to determine whether they are cleared to leave the ship. Meanwhile, panic-stricken passengers expressed their discontent with the way Princess Cruises treated their passengers and handled the situation. The Coast Guard is said to have intervened in delaying the ship’s docking as it prevented the ship from sailing into U.S. waters.

FLORIDA LAW FIRMS AND THE CORONAVIRUS EFFECT

gavel-1238036-300x201Law firms across Florida have had to adapt to COVID-19 as a result of closed courtrooms, travel limitations and working from remote locations in order to reduce the health risks brought on by the spread of the coronavirus.  With jury trials suspended until the end of April by Florida Chief Justice Charles Canady, and oral arguments until June, trial attorneys will need to rely on E-technologies to carry-out legal proceedings and other activities as recommended by Florida courts. According to Craig Waters, director of the state Supreme Court’s Public Information Office, “Members of the Bar are stepping up to the plate in implementing Chief Justice Charles Canady’s statewide orders about the public health emergency. This is a serious emergency, but Florida’s legal professionals understand its seriousness and are working together to make the system work as well as possible.” The efforts proposed are fundamental for the court system to keep operating effectively while aiming to limit the spread of COVID-19 among the population. The most effective to measure law firms can take to safeguard against being infected by the coronavirus, which can be deadly to the elderly and frail, is to work remotely and remain isolated at home. Meanwhile, online notaries will see more work and the Supreme Court has given notaries the green light when it comes to not having to be physically present, allowing for law firms proceed more swiftly with depositions. Encrypted technologies and communication provide attorneys with the tools to keep client information confidential despite having to work off a desktop or by phone from home. In Miami-Dade, Florida’s 11th Circuit court ordered that judicial deadlines and time limits set by orders, rules and statutes be suspended until the last week of April. Federal courts apply electronic filing systems for documentation and pleadings for the time being while the Florida Supreme Court will continue litigation, which will impact clients and attorneys alike in terms of active litigation cases that involve discovery, document production, depositions, etc. While many Florida law firms are still open, most will have eventually be serving clients from remote locations in order to safeguard the well-being of their staff and help reduce the spread of the coronavirus, which is fundamental for a prompt return to normality. 

In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm is open and serving clients from remote locations, aiming to continue delivering the best possible service and achieve the highest possible levels of client satisfaction. Its entire staff is available and fully dedicated to its clients needs when requesting updates and information concerning their case. Furthermore, the Perazzo Law Firm recommends that Florida residents contact us ONLINE of CALL (786) LAWS-411 for a FREE initial consultation in the event of an accident taking place amid the coronavirus pandemic.

CLASS ACTION SUIT BLAMES CHINA FOR THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK

gavel-1238036-300x201The People’s Republic of China (PRC) is being sued by a Florida law firm on the grounds of negligently spreading the deadly COVID-19, popularly known as the coronavirus. According to the class action suit filed on March 13th in the U.S. District Court in Southern Florida, the  People’s Republic of China is being accused of negligence by its public agencies for not being able to contain the spread of the virus, which has led to tens of thousand fatal cases worldwide and totally devastating the U.S. economy. Furthermore, the suit holds the People’s Republic of China guilty of testing the COVID-19 virus on animals within the National Biosafety Laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which is believed to have escaped and spread into the nearby market place that sold live animals for human consumption. The Wuhan lab, a governmental bio-weapon lab,  is believed to be equally at fault for the spread of the virus as negligent controls were to blame, along with other suggested theories that hold Chinese researchers at fault for having sold laboratory test animals to merchants of the marketplace for commercial distribution among humans, instead of following the PRC law which calls for cremation of lab test animals. According to a senior litigation strategist, the firm has gathered information that reveals testing of the COVID-19, or a similar strain of the virus on bats, as well as other animals. At present, the class action suit filed under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, entails five plaintiffs from South Florida that have not been infected by the coronavirus but is set to include individuals that have contracted the potentially deadly disease.  The Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act gives American citizens the right to bring legal action against foreign countries in the event of negligent acts or wrongdoing by the governing officials of that country. The firm alleges that the PRC and other parties, were negligent and acted out of self interest by not reporting the outbreak immediately. It also hints that the PRC was trying to protect their status as a world super power and failed to act accordingly to prevent a worldwide outbreak.  It is believed that the PRC government officials were aware of the potentially harmful magnitude of the virus and delayed notifying the World Health Organization (WHO) by 17 days. Included in the lawsuit is information about a public dinner in the city of Wuhan which had a turnout of some 40,000 families on January 18th. The suit claims that the local government knew about this dinner and allowed it to take place despite knowing the severity of the virus and how quickly it could spread. The Bocan Raton law firm is conducting further investigation into these claims but at present has no real evidence to support its case other than the very real effects of the coronavirus on modern life as we know it, with the global economy on tenterhooks and societies around the world in a state of  panic.

To date, 450,000 coronavirus cases have been reported around the world and some 20,000 deaths since the outbreak was first reported 60 days ago. On a good note, some 110,000 victims have recovered which represents a 24.86% recovery rate. 

VIVAN AK CORONAVIRUS la

surgeon-2-1562062-639x487-1-300x229Gaye incontrôlab coronavirus la te voye yon mesaj klè bay popilasyon mondyal la, sa ki fè li klè pou tout moun ke n ap viv nan yon ti wonn jeyan e ke yon òganis mikwoskopik gen pouvwa pa sèlman pou tiye, men pou chanje fason n ap viv ak dramatikman. wè tèt nou kòm fòs la dominan nan lanati. Nou se pa sèlman konekte wonn revèy la pa fason pou aparèy elektwonik yo, men nou yo tou ki konekte pa lè a anpil nou respire. Kòm destriksyon fè fason nan tout sechèl nan sosyete a ak ras atravè mond lan, li te fòse fòs politik yo ki kontwole lavi nou yo pran mezi ki fè mal sa ki sanble yo dwe twal la anpil nan egzistans nou an, ekonomi an. Avèk coronavirus a vini reyalite a difisil ke nou moun, malgre konsidere tèt nou yon ti jan endèstruktibl, se byen frajil ak ka fasil pou siye soti. Kèlkeswa tandans nan swisid san konesans nou anplwaye nan konsomasyon chak jou nou yo ak kontaminasyon nan resous natirèl nou yo, manman lanati te relativman kalite. Men, konbyen tan sa a ap kontinye ak sa ki ka fè pou chanje nati destriktif nou an? Ki jan nou fè fas ak lavi nan mitan menas la nan coronavirus la? Premye ak premye, li dwe deklare ke prevansyon se geri a nimewo yon sèl pou coronavirus la. Bon ijyèn ak izolasyon sanble pi bon altènativ yo kounyeya. Men, ki jan nou ka viv san entèraksyon, san amizman, san kontak ak lòt moun? Erezman, teknoloji te fè li posib pou nou viv pwatikman, ak lavi nou ak entèraksyon vwayaje nan tan ak espas nan vitès limyè atravè entènèt la. Se teknoloji sa a ki pral pèmèt nou kontinye aktivite chak jou nou yo tankou travay ak lekòl. Men, sa ki sou enstalasyon pwodiksyon ak faktori ki pwodui machandiz yo nou konte moun sou pou siviv? Ki moun ki pral touye bèt yo nou apresye nan? Ki moun ki pral rekòlte ak pake pwodwi yo nou konsome? Ki sa ki pral rive moun lè etajè yo makèt yo vid, ak kay rete soti nan esansyèl yo? Èspere ke, lidè mond nou yo ak syantis yo pral jwenn yon solisyon yo anpeche pòtrè a kataksmik mwen penti pou ou isit la. Men, sa ki si se pa? Ki jan prepare nou tankou yon sèl ras fè fas a tankou konsekans terib? Verite a se ke milyon ap peri kòm yon konsekans kowonaviris la gaye, nan gwo pati granmoun aje a ak fèb la fizikman. Senaryo sa a anpil reyèl san dout ogmante enkyetid kòm byennèt a nan moun ki nan kategori ke yo te nan gwo risk. Li trè san danje yo di ke nan milye a gaye coronavirus a sèlman fò a ap siviv, ak fèb la pral jete nan oubli. Li enpòtan toujou sepandan rete pozitif epi evite tonbe nan twou san fon nan isterik mas, tankou sa a pral sèlman sèvi ranfòse egzistans lan nan coronavirus la. Grip pòsin, ki te siye plis pase 500,000 moun atravè glòb la, te vini e li te ale prèske sou pwòp li yo. Se pou nou espere menm bagay la tou k ap pase ak kowonaviris la over-rated.

VIV NAN KANTANÈ

VIVIR CON EL CORONAVIRUS

surgeon-2-1562062-639x487-1-300x229La propagación incontrolable del coronavirus ha enviado un mensaje claro a la población mundial, dejando en claro a todos que vivimos en una burbuja gigante y que un organismo microscópico tiene el poder no solo de matar, sino de alterar drásticamente la forma en que vivimos y Nos vemos como la fuerza dominante de la naturaleza. No solo estamos conectados las 24 horas a través de dispositivos electrónicos, sino que también estamos conectados por el aire que respiramos. A medida que el caos se abre paso en cada escalón de la sociedad y la raza en todo el mundo, ha obligado a las fuerzas políticas que controlan nuestras vidas a tomar medidas que perjudican lo que parece ser el tejido mismo de nuestra existencia, la economía. Con el coronavirus viene la cruda realidad de que los humanos, a pesar de considerarnos algo indestructibles, somos bastante frágiles y podemos eliminarlos fácilmente. Independientemente de la tendencia suicida inconsciente que empleamos a través de nuestro consumo diario y la contaminación de nuestros recursos naturales, la madre naturaleza ha sido relativamente amable. Pero ¿cuánto tiempo continuará esto y qué se puede hacer para cambiar nuestra naturaleza destructiva? ¿Cómo hacemos frente a la vida en medio de la amenaza del coronavirus? En primer lugar, debe señalarse que la prevención es la cura número uno para el coronavirus. La higiene y el aislamiento adecuados parecen ser las mejores alternativas en la actualidad. Pero ¿cómo podemos vivir sin interacción, sin entretenimiento, sin contacto con otros humanos? Afortunadamente, la tecnología nos ha permitido vivir virtualmente, con nuestras vidas e interacción viajando a través del tiempo y el espacio a la velocidad de la luz a través de Internet. Es esta tecnología la que nos permitirá continuar con nuestras actividades diarias, como el trabajo y la escuela. Pero ¿qué pasa con las instalaciones de producción y las fábricas que producen los bienes de los que los humanos dependemos para sobrevivir? ¿Quién va a sacrificar el ganado que nos entregamos? ¿Quién cosechará y empacará los productos que consumimos? ¿Qué pasará con las personas cuando los estantes de los supermercados estén vacíos y los hogares se queden sin lo esencial? Con suerte, nuestros líderes mundiales y científicos habrán encontrado una solución para evitar el retrato cataclísmico que les pinto aquí. ¿Pero y si no? ¿Qué tan preparados estamos como una raza para enfrentar consecuencias tan graves? La verdad es que millones perecerán como resultado de la propagación del coronavirus, en gran parte los ancianos y los físicamente débiles. Este escenario muy real, sin duda, plantea preocupaciones sobre el bienestar de las personas clasificadas como de alto riesgo. Es muy seguro decir que en medio de la propagación del coronavirus solo los fuertes sobrevivirán, y los débiles serán arrojados al olvido. Sin embargo, es importante permanecer positivo y evitar caer en un pozo sin fondo de histeria colectiva, ya que esto solo servirá para fortalecer la existencia del coronavirus. La gripe porcina, que acabó con más de 500,000 personas en todo el mundo, vino y se fue casi por sí sola. Esperemos que ocurra lo mismo con el sobrevalorado coronavirus.
