Zantac is a popular antacid medicine, which for years was used both as an over-the-counter and prescription option for heartburn, acid reflux, ulcer pain, and other gastrointestinal issues. However, studies have shown that when stored incorrectly and exposed to heat, Zantac’s main ingredient can become cancerous.

Unfortunately, some patients who have taken Zantac for years to deal with gastrointestinal discomfort have now developed cancer or have even passed away from cancer. The medication may be linked to stomach cancer, liver cancer, testicular cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, and other cancers.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, patients in Hollywood who suffered from misdiagnosis may have pursued a medical malpractice claim. These claims were possible if a doctor treating a patient did not meet expected standards of care and the patient was injured as a result. In cases of cancer and other deadly illnesses, a patient could possibly suffer significant harm and even fatalities because of a misdiagnosis.

With COVID-19, unfortunately, misdiagnosis continues to be a concern. The symptoms of COVID-19 include high fever, coughing, and respiratory problems. However, the illness is new and understanding of this coronavirus is imperfect. Authorities have found that some patients have a rash or have atypical symptoms. Some have no symptoms at all. This has made diagnosis difficult.

The current pandemic is a very stressful time for business owners. Many businesses are closing or facing significant revenue losses because they have been forced to close due to stay-at-home orders. In addition, measures may mean that businesses have to pay for personal protective equipment, may need to limit the number of people in their store or establishment, or may be losing employees who must self-isolate or who are ill. Industries such as tourism and retail—major parts of the economy in Hollywood and across South Florida—are especially affected.

In addition to this, many businesses are concerned about possibly being held liable if their employees, customers, or visitors get COVID-19. If you run a business, fortunately, there are several ways you can protect yourself against a premises liability claim in Hollywood and other COVID-19 related claims:

Many people are concerned about the government’s actions when it comes to the pandemic. Some people feel that more strict measures are needed to protect the population from the COVID-19 pandemic. Others feel that mandates to stay-at-home or to close businesses effectively endanger their livelihood and their rights. Both sides have been suggesting lawsuits again against the government in Homestead and beyond.

Whether you feel the government has too slow in promoting safety or if you feel your business collapsed due to harsh measures, you may wonder whether you have a claim against the municipal or state or federal government. You may also be considering all your legal options if you have been personally affected.

Assault is a serious crime in Hollywood and Florida and can lead to both criminal and civil charges. Assault has traditionally involved hitting, punching, physical violence, or threats of violence. However, with the current pandemic a new form of assault is being seen.

This form of assault includes people who deliberately cough at, spit on, or otherwise expose others to the COVID-19 virus, in some cases suggesting that they have novel coronavirus. A person may walk up to a front-line worker, health-care professional, or a stranger and cough, sneeze, or spit on them and then allege to have the virus.

Right now, there is a great deal of unrest and concerns about COVID-9. As a result, the courthouses have been closed and cases may be backlogged. If you have a personal injury case stemming from a slip and fall, workplace injury, trip and fall accident or any other incident, you may wonder what will happen to your personal injury case in Hollywood.

Your Case May Still Move Forward

The good news is that many personal injury claims are settled out of court. It is still possible to negotiate and many attorneys are turning to virtual meetings to keep their staff and clients up to date. It is therefore still possible to consult with an attorney and to negotiate with insurance companies and other parties as part of your claim. As the world slowly reopens, cases will eventually be heard in court, too.

Many employees who work in nursing homes in Hollywood, Homestead, and other Florida communities are concerned right now. With the coronavirus outbreak, staff at nursing homes are at risk if there is an outbreak in a long-term care facility, and since there have been many such outbreaks, many employees are justifiably worried.

800px-Cubicle_land-300x225

Compounding the problem is the fact that there is not enough personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect all staff and in some locations getting tested for the virus can be difficult. In addition, some people who have the COVID-19 virus are asymptomatic. They can pass the illness onto others because they do not know they are unwell, allowing the illness to spread rapidly. Since nursing home staff work closely with residents, they are especially at risk.

In south Florida and across the country, nursing homes are among the most hard-hit areas for COVID-19 outbreaks, complications, and fatalities. As a result, many families are wondering whether they have a Florida or Hollywood nursing home negligence case against long-term homes.

These facilities often have high concentrations of elderly residents in an enclosed space, allowing the disease to spread. Since residents are in close contact with staff and caregivers, they are vulnerable if any staff contract the virus outside and bring it to the facility. Tragically, since many residents in long-term care facilities have underlying conditions and medical concerns, they are more likely than the general population to develop serious and life-threatening complications from the novel coronavirus.

Right now, many people are working to make money and with customers needing a range of products to stay at home, there are many products which may be cropping up in stores which are less than safe. More customers are also shopping online and this can mean they cannot always carefully check for the safety of products when they shop.

Unfortunately, this can mean a rise in unsafe products and even dangerous or defective items which can lead to burns, facial injuries, and other injuries:

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
