Last month, radio personality Betty Pino died from complications during a cosmetic procedure. Her family was left in shock and is considering bringing a medical malpractice suit against her cosmetic surgeon. Miami New Times reported that the city’s medical examiner has spoken out, criticizing the medical treatment of Pino.


After finding a cosmetic surgeon to remove silicone implants from her buttocks, her wounds became infected. Her infection spread, and she slipped into a coma.

Doctors took extraordinary measures in an attempt to save her life, but she passed away. Her family told reporters that they were deciding whether or not to file a personal injury suit against plastic surgeon Constantino Mendieta, who performed the operation.

It is common for floors to get wet, pavement to become uneven and slip and falls to happen. It is for that reason that not every instance of a slip and fall accident should result in a lawsuit. Business and homeowners cannot be expected to catch every item or liquid on the ground immediately. They cannot be held liable for every slip or trip that occurs on the premise. There is a level of responsibility for one’s own actions that need to be taken into account before pursuing a personal injury lawsuit due to a slip and fall accident. A personal injury lawyer will be able to go over the details of your accident with you and confirm whether or not you have grounds to make a claim.

When it comes to determining liability for injuries related to a slip and fall accident in Florida, certain things need to be taken into account. Whether or not the owner of the property or an employee caused the spill or knew about the source of danger on the premises and failed to do anything about it for example. These cases revolve around common sense; had the owner taken reasonable measures to provide a safe environment? Where they neglectful of maintaining a safe environment? To win a slip and fall case, you must show how the property owner was liable for the accident. You must also be able to show you suffered a significant injury directly caused by their negligence. This is why consulting a personal injury attorney is so important.

Your attorney will be able to go over the details contributing to your fall such as; poor lighting, broken furniture or railings, lack of signage warning people of any potential dangers or barricades preventing entry into a risky area of the property. Whether or not a lack of proper building inspections and regular maintenance had a hand in your accident.

Second AmendmentMIAMI BEACH – Certainly, guns and the right to bear arms will always be a topic of heated debate. With everything that has been said and opinions abound, it is interesting to simply read the Constitutional amendment from which any debate must begin. 

The Second Amendment was adopted on December 15, 1791 along with the rest of the Bill of Rights. It was ratified by the Secretary of State, Thomas Jefferson.  It provides that:

“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
