Plantation Resident Injured in Explosion to File Lawsuit

Published

on

BOCA RATON, FLA. (July 11, 2019) – A Plantation man out for a Saturday workout and injured by the massive shopping center explosion has hired an attorney to seek damages for physical and emotional trauma. Gonzalo Rubio was at LA Fitness when the explosion occurred and sustained head trauma caused by falling debris. He continues to suffer psychological trauma as he heals from his injuries.

“Whether this was an accident, negligence, or a criminal act, far too many questions surround this incident. But one thing is clear, the suffering of Mr. Rubio and dozens of other people is far from over,” said Josh Polsky of the law firm Bernstein|Polsky. “Doctors can’t tell him yet how long until his physical or psychological symptoms will resolve, if ever.”

Rubio was one of 23 people reported injured – 19 of those were hospitalized – in the Saturday morning blast at the vacant Pizzafire restaurant at the Market on University, at 1041 S. University Drive. The blast was felt miles away. A host of businesses remain closed; officials have said several structures will be condemned.

The pizza restaurant was under renovation for a new tenant, according to news reports. The gas company told media they had dispatched a crew to the area after received a report of a smell of gas in the area. “Our law office has assembled a team to examine the cause of this loss in conjunction with the investigations being conducted by local and federal law enforcement.”

Investigators with the Plantation Fire Department, the state fire marshal’s office, the FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the bomb squad and arson teams from the Broward Sheriff’s Office have not determined whether the incident was an accident, negligence, or vandalism, or whether criminal charges may be filed.

The number of people injured might exceed the 23 reported the day of the event. Some injuries are perceived immediately; others can take days or even weeks to become apparent, Polsky said. Those who suffered any obvious trauma, cuts or abrasions, or now are suffering from headaches, tinnitus, or dizziness should see their physician.

“We’re staying in close contact with the Mayor’s office and authorities to learn as soon as they know the cause of this incident,” Polsky said. “We have investigated a myriad of similar catastrophes in past years and the tale of these innocent victims and bystanders has only started to unfold.”

South Florida Medicaid Meals Home Delivery – Independent Living Systems

Published

on

By

Founded in 2001, Independent Living Systems (ILS) was formed to assist health plans and other organizations in the delivery of community based services as an alternative to costly institutional based care.

Miami home delivered Medicaid meals 

In developing and implementing one of the country’s first long-term care diversion program in the country, we learned that nearly 70% of people residing in nursing homes would not need to be there if they had access to community based resources to support them. With an average cost of a year-long stay in a nursing home at $60,000, ILS developed the Managed Long-Term Services and Supports Program to reduce those costs to an average of $25,000. Improving costs and quality, combined with a patient’s preference to live at home has been the driving force behind the development of our future services.

LS is one of the nation’s largest nutritional providers delivering high-quality dietician-designed meals to the elderly, special needs, and at-risk populations. Members receive dietary menus that are tailored to the health care needs of the recipient.

ILS meals help individuals achieve their nutrition goals at critical times to help them regain and maintain their health. The results include improved member health outcomes, lower hospital readmission rates, a well-maintained nutritional health status, and increased member satisfaction.

Florida home insurance policy owners should know that no two insurance carriers’ policies are alike. Each home insurance policy is written by a team of insurance company legal experts to meet the financial and legal risk profile that the company wishes to accept for the premium paid. The State of Florida does regulate the insurance industry and many terms of coverage are protected by law but there can be many areas of exclusion and payout limitations that are specific to each contract. When a claim is disputed, it’s easy for a consumer to feel overwhelmed their friendly neighborly insurance agent isn’t in the process it’s done by the claims department which has an entirely different agenda than the sales agent.

Top Rated – Miami Home Insurance Law Firm 

In the event that your home is damaged or destroyed by a hurricane or severe storm, fire, water or mold damage, or other events, don’t be surprised if the insurance company’s first reaction is to respond in one of the following ways:

  • Claim that your damage is due to some pre-existing condition
  • Assert that your claim is not covered under the terms of your policy
  • Offer you a low settlement amount that does not cover your losses
  • Allege that your claim is fraudulent, or that you did not keep up with your premium payments
  • Fail to investigate or respond to your claim
  • Cancel your policy based on recently-discovered “errors” in your application
