The Nature of Bicycle Accidents

Posted by on Jun 10, 2019 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Bicycles are lightweight, cheap, and accessible modes of transportation that are increasingly important to a world increasingly less dependent upon non-renewable forms of energy. On a grand scale, oil and gas will not be around for much longer. Gears and pedals, however, are here to stay.

Unfortunately, just as car accidents are prevalent in life, so too are bike accidents a common occurrence. Even worse, bicycle accidents are more dangerous than other accidents because bicycles lack the protection and safety mechanisms that are found in modern automobiles. If a bicyclist collides with a pedestrian or a car, the bicyclist can incur severe injuries.

I love bicycles and I am interested in increasing the awareness of safety around the topic, so I did some research and found a really important tip on how to prevent bike accidents, in addition to information about the injuries that can result from them:

Always be seen

One of the biggest predictors of bicycle accidents is the visibility of the person riding the bicycle; if the person is wearing dark colors while riding their bike in the middle of the night, accidents are bound to happen. In the same way that drivers ought to drive defensively and always be on the lookout for others’ mistakes, it is in a cyclist’s best interest to assume that others are not paying close attention to the road and the road’s other inhabitants.

Wearing a reflective vest and indicating lights is also a great idea for increasing visibility and equally, the safety of a cyclist. Another idea to consider to improve safety as a cyclist is solely riding in the main pathways of a road — especially within areas that are the most well-lit. There are two reasons to take this into consideration: first, it is easier for cars to see a bike if the rider is in a lit area. And secondly, if a bicycle accident were to happen (even if it is simply a bike crashing into a stationary object), being in a well-lit area is going to increase the chances of being seen by bystanders who can call medical services.

Sticks and stones…

As the law firm Hare Wynn describes, bicycle accidents are particularly dangerous. If a person riding a bicycle accident is not wearing a helmet, the likelihood of traumatic brain injuries resulting from an accident skyrocket. It is crucial to exercise a surprisingly high amount of caution when riding a bike in order to not crash. A small amount of this caution must go toward the precautionary step of wearing a helmet, even on the shortest of rides.

Another large share of injuries that occur from bike accidents are cuts and bruises. While this may seem like a small deal, it must be remembered that even small cuts can result in dangerously large amounts of blood loss. And while bruises are not usually dangerous, if they are deep enough they can cause uncomfortable swelling to the point of cutting off blood flow to tissues.

As you can see, there is no such thing as a small accident when it comes to bicycles. Wear bright colors, keep your eyes on the road, put on a helmet, and know the risks before you step on your pedals!

Breast Surgery

Posted by on Aug 14, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Breasts come in all kinds of different shapes and sizes, but no matter what the shape or size, they can create problems. People can find their breasts too big, too small, too low, too different from each other, or just not the shape they desire. Changing the source of an insecurity leads to a happier and healthier life, so cosmetic breast surgeons have spent years perfecting techniques to improve their skills to give people the confidence that comes with the removal of their source of insecurity. These surgeons, such as the cosmetic breast surgeons with Bergman & Folkers Plastic Surgery, can perform:

  • Breast implant removals
  • Breast augmentations
  • Breast reconstructions
  • Breast reductions
  • Breast lifts
  • Breast lift and implant combination
  • Breast implant exchange

Large breasts are not always the goal, they can also be the problem. Large breasts can create back problems from the burden of their weight on a person, severely affect posture, and pose a significant financial burden from the cost of buying specially made brassieres and tailoring clothing to fit over the breasts. A breast reduction can improve all these problems large breasts impose.

Besides augmentations and reductions, the surgeons can also perform reconstructions, which can help recreate the shape and size of a breast after a mastectomy performed on a cancer survivor. One of the most common treatments for breast cancer is a mastectomy, a procedure in which doctors remove the breast. Breast reconstruction is now at the stage in which cosmetic breast surgeons can closely recreate the exact size and shape of the survivor’s breast.

Breast cosmetic surgery can vastly improve a person’s outlook on life by giving them the confidence they deserve, whether it be by reducing breast size to take a weight off their shoulders or by recreating what an illness took away from them.
