E-scooter rentals have become very popular around Hollywood, Miami, and South Florida in general as a way to get around. Many companies, including Lyft, Bird, Lime, and Uber’s Jump now rent these small vehicles to tourists, who happily zip around the area.

Unfortunately, E-scooters are not without their dangers. They can easily topple over and when tourists use them incorrectly on sidewalks, roads, bike lanes, or in parks, injuries to pedestrians and other drivers can occur. When E-scooters are incorrectly returned and left on sidewalks, ramps, or even streets, they can also cause secondary accidents.

Misdiagnosis is a serious concern in Hollywood and across South Florida. When a medical professional misses the signs of a serious illness, patients may not get the treatment they need. Medical malpractice cases in South Florida can also occur when incorrect treatment is given. If the wrong site is operated on or if you are given treatment intended for another patient or another illness you don’t have, you may have a claim.

Overdiagnosis and overtreatment get far less attention, but they are also causes of concern. Overdiagnosis and overtreatment refer to exceedingly vigorous diagnosis and unneeded treatment, which can lead to injury and complications. For example, if a patient has a small thyroid tumor and they are subjected to radiation or chemo when the tumor is benign or unlikely to cause averse effects, the patient may suffer serious complications or injury as a result of the treatment, even though the treatment may not be needed.

Sustaining a brain injury can be a devastating experience, whether your injury is the result of a car accident, workplace accident or other situation in Hollywood or South Florida. Researchers have been learning more about brain injuries and over the past several years it is becoming apparent that brain trauma has more far-reaching outcomes than was previously realized.

New research from the Peter O’Donnell Jr. Brain Institute at UT Southwestern, for example, has suggested traumatic brain injuries can increase the risk of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers have found a possible correlation between brain injury and early Alzheimer’s by conducting autopsies on patients. According to the more than 2,100 autopsies conducted, those patients who suffered traumatic brain injuries severe enough to lose consciousness for more than five minutes tended to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s about two and a half years earlier when compared with non-injured counterparts.

Children are at risk of pedestrian accidents when walking around, even when they are with parents. Kids are hard to truck drivers to see from a cab and since young children are still learning the ins and outs of traffic rules, they can make mistakes which can lead to traffic collisions in Hollywood and other communities.

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
