Advantages of Having Breast Implants

Deciding whether to get breast implants or not can be difficult. After all, we are talking about your body here, and making changes to it may give rise to ethical and medical issues. But these are just minor step backs to the amazing advantages of having breast implants. The advantages may be on your body, mind, or both.

For your Body

Breast implants may correct the symmetry of your breasts, especially if they have sustained changes due to things like breast cancer and the procedures associated with it, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight loss. Having symmetrical breasts has its own benefits, like how they fit easier on bras and bikinis without the use of uncomfortable forms.

Implants also make your breasts bigger and more appealing. This is done in a way that doesn’t look over the top, so you don’t have to worry about looking too unnatural. Breast implants involve calculated procedures, taking into consideration your preferences and the medical professional’s recommendations.

Implants are not just about sizes, because they are also about shapes. The medical professionals will make sure that your breasts don’t just look bigger, but also firmer for a healthier look. This perfection in both size and shape will make you look good in whatever clothing you choose to wear.

For Your Mind

Looking good in whatever piece of clothing results into confidence. Of course, you shouldn’t rely on your looks alone for confidence, but they do help in establishing and solidifying a positive impression in yourself.

It can also be argued that breasts are significant signs of femininity, so it can be said that those who have breast implants may feel more feminine because of the improvements in their breasts in terms of symmetry, size, and shape.

Implants are not for Everybody

Some women don’t like the idea of going through procedures or inserting something unnatural inside of them, which is just as understandable as those who like the idea. They want to go all natural, even though it means that the symmetry, size, and shape of their breasts are not perfect.

The important thing is knowing that your body is not the only important aspect of your being, and your breasts don’t define who you are as a woman, or even as a person. But getting breast implants is an option available for those who may want them.

Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury

Feb 04

Traumatic brain injury occurs when the brain has sustained damage due to excessive force. This injury is mostly sustained in traffic accidents, sporting activities, slip and fall accidents, and acts of violence on the head. The injury becomes more tragic if the carelessness and negligence of another party is at fault. Those instances are so serious that there are even legal professionals who specialize on them, such as this Panama City personal injury attorney.

Traumatic brain injuries can be classified depending on its severity. It can be mild, moderate, or severe. To know what kind of traumatic brain injury is sustained, an individual can look for the signs listed below.

Mild traumatic brain injury
A mild TBI, also commonly called a concussion and a minor head trauma, may occur if the confusion, disorientation, or unconsciousness has lasted for less than 30 minutes. The first signs of a mild TBI are dizziness, headaches, memory loss, nausea, and slowness of thinking.

But even mild traumatic brain injuries have severe effects, such as sensory problems. Victims may suffer from vision problems, hear ringing in the ears, and taste something bad in their mouths. Mental problems are also common on patients. The most common mental problems include irritability and mood swings, difficulty concentrating, sleeping disorders, and feelings of anxiety and depression.

Moderate to severe traumatic brain injury
If a person has been unconscious for about 20 minutes to 6 hours, he or she may have suffered a moderate traumatic brain injury. The injury sustained may be considered severe if the unconsciousness has lasted more than 6 hours.

Moderate and severe TBI share the same entry in this list because their symptoms are mostly the same. The only difference is their severity.

The physical symptoms of moderate to severe TBI are the same as those from mild TBI, but on a more serious level. Dizziness and nausea may result into vomiting, headaches become persistent, and the patient may experience seizures. The patient may also have body coordination problems, or worse, physical paralysis.

The sensory problems associated with these kinds of TBI are also more serious. Partial or total loss of vision, hearing, sense of smell, and sense of taste are not that uncommon. There may also be difficulties in reading, writing, and speaking.

Types of Insurance Agent Negligence

Dec 12

Natural calamities such as tornadoes and hurricanes can leave devastating damage to properties. The devastation can be so excessive that you may not be able to pay for repairs from your own pocket. Luckily, they can rely on insurance to cover for the possible expenses they will incur. However, in order to receive the full compensation, the damage has to be fully appraised by an insurance agent. This is where negligence of the insurance agent will come in.

According to the website of Williams Kherkher, there are different ways an insurance agent can be negligent. These actions can have devastating financial consequences on the individual suffering from the effects of a severe storm. Let us take a look at some instances an insurance agent can be negligent when it comes to claims:

1. Failure to advise clients of their appropriate coverage

An insurance agent can be negligent when they fail to inform their clients about the appropriate coverage options or misinforming them as to the extent or nature of the coverage they are purchasing,

2. Conduct has fallen below the required standard for their profession

An insurance agent has the duty to inform client about the termination of their coverage. If the agent was not able to file the paperwork or filed it improperly and such conduct has led to losses for the client, the agent can be held liable for the losses.

3. Failure to inform client about the type and amount of insurance they require

It is important for agents to inform and recommend the appropriate coverage and not doing so will result in a breach.

4. Failure to give the client the correct coverage they need

Whether requested by the client or coverage that they need, an insurance agent must ensure that their customer receive the correct coverage. If the client made a mistake and the client did not get the proper coverage or right risk, the agent is in breach of their duty.

Implied Consent In A DUI Charge Explained

Aug 25

When an officer flags you down for suspected DUI, the first thing they will do is have you undergo a breathalyzer test to determine your blood alcohol content (BAC). However, not everyone are willing to subject themselves to such kind of procedures. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 20 percent of drunk driving suspects in the US refuse to take a breathalyzer test when stopped by a police officer.

According to the website of Horst Law, refusal to take a chemical test after being placed under arrest subjects you to being charged for violating the law on implied consent. This rule states that if you have been arrested for DUI, you agree to be subjected to blood, urine, or breath tests for the purpose of determining your BAC. The law prohibits you to consult an attorney before the testing and the test should be administered as soon as possible from the time you were driving. The arresting officer chooses the test you will take but you can choose the additional tests administered by a doctor of your choice.

With implied consent, you can still be arrested for DUI even if you are not the driver. As long as you have physical control of the vehicle, it is enough ground for the officer to arrest you. In addition, the law says that you consent to taking a preliminary breath test even if you were not arrested. The result of the test will be used by the officer to determine if there is probable cause that you were indeed driving while intoxicated. While you can refuse to take the test, doing so would not help your cause as the officer may think you had been drinking. The law enforcer can use that reason to still arrest you.

When you are arrested, the officer will remind you that your license will be suspended if you refuse to take a test. For first refusal, the suspension will be valid for one year while succeeding refusals will result to license suspension for three years. The officer will then submit a sworn report to the Secretary of State detailing the reasons for your refusal.

Wrongful Death

May 13

Five Georgia Southern University students who comprised of Savannah resident Abbie DeLoach, Millen resident Caitlyn Baggett, Leesburg resident Morgan Bass, Alpharetta resident Catherine Mckay Pittman, and Powder Springs resident Emily Clark, died on April 22, 2015 when a tractor trailer rig hit their vehicle as it was sitting in traffic on Interstate 16 in Bryan County.

Attorneys at the website of Ausband & Dumont say that the families of the victims filed a wrongful death lawsuit in May 2015 against U.S. Express Entities, the parent company of Mississipi-based Total Transportation and its subsidiaries, as well as Pooler-based Graywolf Logistics and the truck driver, who is Shreveport, Louisiana resident John Wayne Johnson.

According to investigations made by the Georgia State Patrol, the tractor trailer rig-car collision caused a seven-vehicle pileup.

The lawsuit stated that the truck that Johnson was driving should have contained a collision avoidance system that is designed to provide the driver with visual and auditory warnings that there are objects that are blocking the truck’s path. It claimed that the truck had been traveling at around 70 miles per hour and did not slow when it hit a Toyota Corolla that was occupied by Clark, Pittman, and Baggett and the Ford Escape that was directly in front of the Corolla that was occupied by Bass, Loganville resident Megan Richards, and Reidsville resident Brittany McDaniels. Richards and McDaniels survived the crash.

The lawsuit also said that people involved in the accident saw the “explosion of the fuel tank [that] engulfed the Toyota”. It also claims that there had been no bad weather, and that there had been no possible hindrances to Johnson’s seeing that there was traffic in front of him, noting “because he was drowsy or some other inexplicable reason, Johnson did not slow or stop…never applied brakes, never made any move to avoid a collision, before slamming into the rear of the Toyota at high speed”.
