Every year, school administrators and teachers grapple with the decision whether to allow students to celebrate Halloween on campus. Inappropriate costumes, poor conduct and religious reasons have all factored into the decision making process behind an increasing number of schools that are banning Halloween parties and costumes.

Some of the most serious injuries that people sustain are often treated at the nearest hospital.

Personal injury litigation arising out of a car crash is among the most common forms of civil litigation in the state of Florida. Many years ago, the State of Florida enacted laws that were intended to encourage smaller claims to be resolved without a lawsuit. In general, the laws sought to provide quick and hassle-free payment of minor medical bills in exchange for a threshold for personal injury claims that were allowed to go to a lawsuit. The threshold is a permanent injury, which can be a broken bone, significant scarring or a severe sprain that will be permanent. If the injury does not meet this threshold, you cannot claim pain and suffering damages for your car accident injury.
