The History of Easter in an Eggshell

easter-meaning-300x190

The Easter celebration has come a long way and evolved from being a religious celebration of peace, love, and joy, to a feast of chocolate eggs and bunny rabbits. Regardless, history tells a different tale, with the term “easter” dating back to an English Goddess named Eostre, to whom worship was rendered in early spring. This, according to the writings of a late 17th century British Monk named Venerable Bede.

To Christianity and the New Testament, the first full moon of the spring equinox symbolizes the moment when Jesus Christ resurrected into heaven after being crucified and dying outside of Jerusalem in a town called Golgatha (Arabic for ‘the place of skulls’) in 33AD. According to writings and astrologers, the Last Supper took place on Wednesday, April 1st, with his crucifixion and death on Friday, April 3rd. It is said that upon his death, the moon turned red, which symbolizes the lunar eclipse which occurred on that day. The same is expected in the southern hemisphere for this 2022. Christians believe that he rose to heaven three days later to sit by God’s side.

In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm informs Florida residents that Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance and Property Damage (PD) are mandatory for registered vehicle owners and operators. Unfortunately, PIP insurance is an extremely complicated vehicle accident insurance policy, especially following an accident that leads to injuries to individuals or damage to property and in light of a lawsuit that leads to an accident claim for compensation. It is very important for Florida motorists to understand the basics behind PIP insurance and how it covers the medical expenses of the vehicle owner and the individuals listed on the policy, as well as any relatives residing in the same households and potentially any passenger in the vehicle should they not have their own coverage under the law. In Florida, PIP was made mandatory because most accidents would cause under $10,000 in damages or injuries. Thus, PIP aims to solve the problem of medical bills not getting paid, people suffering from reduced credit scores, and accident victims fearing lack of treatment accidents and claims. Since PIP is mandatory for all Florida motorists or registered vehicle owners, treatment at a medical facility will be covered by the insurance carrier which must be notified of the accident to proceed accordingly following an accident. In this case, the injured party will visit his or her medical practitioner and sign an assignment of benefits which grants the doctor the right to bill the insurance provider directly on their behalf. Furthermore, individuals that have suffered personal injury as a result of the accident in Miami, may opt to file their own PIP claim treatment coverage. PIP provides accident victims with the legal right to visit a doctor for treatment regardless of whether they have medical insurance. Also, PIP allows you to seek medical treatment no matter who was at fault for the accident and PIP pays up to $2,500 subject to a deductible and co-payment unless there’s an emergency medical conditions that entitles $10,000 in injuries or lost wages. The Perazzo Law Firm strongly recommends that those who can afford it, to supplement PIP with other insurance policies such as uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. Following an accident in Miami or and Florida city or suburb, additional insurance coverage policies will help protect against medical costs for treating serious personal injury or even third-party wrongful death.
