April is National Alcohol Awareness Month and it’s a great time to discuss drinking responsibly. Alcohol has been drunk since at least 7000–6600 BCE, but it is only in the last generation or two that we have come to appreciate how dangerous it can be. Not only can excessive alcohol use contribute to many illnesses, including the risk of some cancers, but it can also increase the risk of injury.

Alcohol slows down response times, increases fatigue, and leads to poor decision-making. While we usually think of alcohol as causing car collisions in Hollywood and other communities, it can also lead to:

March is National Brain Injury Awareness Month and it’s a great time to raise awareness about traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can be a life-altering or fatal injury to sustain. Many traumatic brain injuries occur due to blunt force trauma to the brain. When this happens, the brain shakes around inside the skull, which can cause bruising and bleeding to occur. In some cases, the brain swells due to the injury and because of the skull there is no place for the brain to go, causing pressure which can cause further damage to the brain tissue.

Brain injuries can also occur if a person’s brain is deprived of oxygen for an extended period of time, as can occur with some birth injuries or with near-drownings. Injury can also occur if the skull is pierced and the tissue inside is directly impacted.

Endometriosis is a serious condition that affects an estimated one in ten women. It is also a highly misdiagnosed condition, with most women waiting years for a proper diagnosis. March is Endometriosis Month, and the ideal time to raise awareness about this condition.

What Is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a painful condition which can affect anyone with a uterus. It causes tissue similar to what usually lines the endometrium (uterus) to grow outside the uterus. This lining can grow around the pelvic and reproductive organs, including the ovaries and fallopian tubes, though it can also affect other organs. Like the usual endometrium lining, this tissue sheds regularly, but it has no way to leave the body, so over time scarring and excess tissue can develop around organs, which in some cases can cause organs and pelvic tissue to stick together and surgery may be needed to separate organs again.

Cheerleaders put in hours of grueling practice to perform amazing athletic feats and to compete in major events. As the sport has gotten more respect and recognition, we’re also recognizing that these athletes face serious injuries and deserve safety measures to protect them. March is National Cheerleading Safety Month and a perfect time to focus on these hard-working athletes.

Buses are used in many environments. In Florida theme parks, buses are used to transport tourists to attractions. Around cities, they are used as mass transit. Church groups, schools, airports, and other organizations all rely on these motor vehicles to transport people.

Yet while bus accidents are less common than car accidents, these collisions do happen. Common types of bus accidents in Cooper City and the surrounding area include:

For most people, a slip and fall bruises the ego and thankfully nothing else. But slip and fall incidents in Homestead are far from minor issues. Each year, they kill Americans and cause serious suffering and life-altering, permanent injuries. The elderly are most vulnerable in slip and fall injuries, because they are at risk of hip fractures and may also have conditions such as osteoporosis, which make falls more dangerous. However, anyone is at risk of slip and fall accidents.

Research has shown that women are far more likely to be misdiagnosed when compared with men. Women are 50% more likely than men to be misdiagnosed if they have a heart attack and 30% more likely than men to be misdiagnosed after a stroke. In addition, conditions that affect women, such as fibroids or endometriosis, can take ten years or longer to accurately diagnose, even though these diseases affect one in ten women.

Doctors have an obligation to provide good care to all their patients, and that includes the half of patients that are women. When doctors do not take women’s care seriously and women suffer serious complications or fatalities, medical professionals can and should be held accountable.

The kitchen is the heart of the home, but it is also a common site of home injuries. Preparing and serving food can put you at risk of cuts, falls, and burns in your Hollywood home. In addition, the appliances we use everyday can pose a serious hazard. If they are manufactured negligently, they can overheat and cause fires or other damage.

Women may visit an OB-GYN in Homestead for many reasons related to pregnancy, fertility, and other health issues. While the goal with these visits is to help women, some women face misdiagnosis and medical malpractice which results in injury and trauma.

Misdiagnosis happens for many reasons. In some cases, such as ovarian cancer, there are simply not the advanced and reliable tests available to ensure accurate diagnosis and the tests that do exist – such as blood tests – are not always suggested. There is also some evidence that medical schools do not always emphasize women’s health as a separate entity and bias as well as lack of research into conditions affecting women can also impact diagnosis.

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.
