I suffered a premises liability-related injury: Who should pay?

When you enter someone's property in Florida, you can reasonably expect not to get injured. This essentially means that the owner of the property is responsible for keeping the environment safe. Unfortunately, this does not always happen, and you may end up getting injured on the other party's property, which is grounds for a premises liability claim.

Your rights when your landlord ignores security concerns

You have no idea when it happened or who did it, unless the lot has a camera that caught the car and/or the license plate number.

One of the biggest risks to patients in medical settings is simply that other medical professionals may be nervous or reluctant to speak up when they notice that mistakes are being made. This was examined in a report call "Silence Kills." It looked at data spanning five years, and it was carried out by the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses and the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN).
