The Injury Law Clinic Participates in Thanksgiving Food Drive to Help Feed South Florida

On October 8th, 2009, there was a fire at the Daily Food Bank Broward County Warehouse, which caused the tragic loss of 93,000 pounds of food, which equals 62,000 meals.  Knowing the Daily Bread Food Bank serves thousands of people throughout Broward County and that hunger is such a big issue in our community due to the poor economy, South Florida personal injury attorneys from The Injury Law Clinic wanted to give back to the community they serve, so they decided to participate in this year’s Feeding South Florida, formerly Daily Bread Food Bank, Thanksgiving Food Drive event.

Working in partnership with 1st United Bank of Cooper City, Diana Castrillon and the associates from The Injury Law Clinic donated and hand-delivered nearly 500 cans of non-perishable food items. The Injury Law Clinic was excited to contribute to this year’s Feeding South Florida food drive event which helped hundreds of needy families this Thanksgiving holiday.

Feeding South Florida is a not for profit organization that empowers other South Florida Not-for-profit organizations to feed needy people and improve their lives. This is accomplished by providing food and other grocery products and by educating and engaging our community to fight hunger and poverty.

We’re happy to report that Feeding South Florida was able to bounce back larger and stronger than ever, thanks to such a large response from the media and the local community. Feeding South Florida has recently opened a new facility in Pembroke Park. 

Wondering what you can do to help fight hunger? The Injury Law Clinic would like to encourage you to donate money or non-perishable food items to Feeding South Florida. Did you know that by donating just $1 Feeding South Florida can provide six meals?

Diana CastrillonThe Injury Law Clinic was excited to participate in this year’s Puerto Rican Fiesta’s Patronales event, which was held November 12-15, 2009 in Pembroke Pines, Florida. Co-sponsored and organized by The Puerto Rican Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Broward County, Fiestas Patronales and Business Expo is the largest Hispanic event in Broward County.  With Spanish-Speaking and Bi-Lingual Attorneys serving Broward County, The Injury Law Clinic felt this was a perfect event to introduce our law firm to the customers we serve in the Hispanic community in South Florida.  With more than 20,000 attendees per year, it brings the Hispanic tradition to life. 

Diana CastrillonFiestas Patronales is a class-act Hispanic event that brings together the culture, arts and crafts, business exposure of many industries and it’s sponsors, and the music to one venue in South Florida, making it the most popular event among the Hispanic community in South Florida.  During this four day event, our attorneys were able to meet with many members of our Hispanic community and answer many questions about your legal rights when it comes to all types of Personal Injury Cases, including Slip & Fall Accidents, Car Accidents, Workman’s Compensation and more. 

The Injury Law Clinic was very happy to participate in this event, and we look forward to seeing you at next year’s Fiesta Patronales.

Having a Safe and Happy Halloween

Halloween is right around the corner and that means its time for ghoulish costumes, spooky treats and all-night parties. Unfortunately, that also means it’s time for some serious Halloween related injuries.

Every year thousands of injuries are reported on October 31.  Mostly, the injuries are accidents: kids burning themselves while playing with lit Jack O’ Lanterns and candles or tripping while running around the neighborhood with oversized costumes and props. But some can be more serious, like car accidents caused by drunk drivers and chocking incidents due to faulty costumes and props.

This Halloween remember to keep your family and yourself safe while celebrating by following some basic holiday safety tips:

If your going to a party where alcoholic beverages will be served, make sure you have a designated driver. One of the major causes of accidents on Halloween is auto accidents where one or both parties were drunk. 

If  you are staying at home and greeting neighborhood trick-or-treaters  make sure your house is plainly lit and that there are no decorations or wires blocking your entry path that may cause children to fall and injure themselves.

If you are going to be walking the neighborhood with your own children, make sure to carry a flash light. Children can be hit by Halloween traffic while crossing the street due to a lack of visibility. Also, know your neighborhood. While the State of Florida Department of Corrections has strict guidelines on sexual offenders during the holiday season it’s always best to be prepared. Go on http://offender.fdle.state.fl.us/offender/homepage.do to look up your neighborhood and see where potential treats may be.

Lastly, pick costumes that are breathable, fit right and are safe for children. Sometime costumes that look non-flammable aren’t.  Make sure you read tags and labels on all the costume pieces and follow age requirements which can prevent serious chocking accidents, especially when it comes to small props like guns and wands that have pieces that can break off easily.

Remember it’s not always possible to prevent injuries, but its’ always best to be prepared and have a plan.

The Injury Law Clinic wishes you a happy and safe Halloween.
