New York law on nursing home elder abuse

Sometimes you cannot help but take an elderly loved one to a nursing home, especially when they need specialized care. The nursing home parts with a lump sum of your earnings every year. Therefore, it is only just for the home to look after the residents keenly. Some proprietors neglect their premises in a bid to maximize profits, subjecting the home dwellers to the risk of sustaining nursing home injuries. The nursing home staff must exhibit a reasonable standard of care. However, understaffing in some homes leads to elder abuse as the few employees available are overwhelmed by the work.

 

How a car accident lawyer can help with a personal injury claim

Much has been said about the pain and suffering that people go through whenever they are involved in an auto accident. However, many crash victims do not understand the role of car accident lawyers when it comes to filing compensation claims. You might probably be one of those people who have suffered in silence after a car crash. These legal experts can help ease the pain and the effects of lost income by filing claims on your behalf.

The CDC estimates that car crashes are the main cause of fatalities among Americans aged between 5 to 34 years. In addition, they are the main cause of physical and psychological injuries. Despite the fact that car accidents occur almost on a daily basis, victims get affected in different ways. Car accident attorneys understand this and therefore, treat each case with the attention that it deserves. Once you seek help, you will be helped to seek legal redress concerning everything that pertains to the accident.

New York car accident leaves one woman dead

It seems like every time we turn on the news or pick up the newspaper here in New York, there's another tragic story about lives lost in a motor vehicle accident. In fact, according to numbers from the CDC, car accidents are the number one cause of death for people between age 5 and 34. 

Why it's important to seek medical attention after a car accident

Sustaining an injury from a car accident no matter how minimal should never go untreated. Seeing a doctor right away poses many benefits to your future health as well as your active insurance claim.

If you wait too long to receive medical attention for an accident-related injury it becomes more difficult to prove the validity of your injury and how it occurred, especially if the case is closed and no injury was ever documented.

Safety at a construction site

Employment trends are recorded by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a division of the U.S. Department of Labor. Trends show that approximately 6 million people are employed in the construction industry which accounts for almost 4% of the nation's workforce. This figure is expected to increase to a 7.4 million by the year 2022. Thus, the construction industry is blooming and growing. 

Rights of an employee and OSHA regulations

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was created by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in order to reduce workplace hazards as well as implement safety programs within the Department of Labor. These regulations are applicable to sites undergoing construction. As an employee, it will be to your benefit to be have knowledge about these regulations.

Recognizing traumatic brain injuries

Our brain is essential to our survival and our bodies generally protect them very well. Unfortunately, despite our body's natural defenses, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) still happen. Because they are an internal injury that may have no external sign, TBIs will sometimes go unnoticed for quite some time before they are recognized and treated.

The goal after any injury is to ensure that it is cared for as quickly as possible. This promotes healing and prevents the injury from getting any worse. People often assume that TBIs only happen as a result of very intense circumstances like car accidents or long falls from high places, but the reality is that TBIs can be caused by what might appear to be small incidents. When considering TBIs, it is important to be familiar with some basic symptoms so whoever is injured can get the help they need.

Why you should never text and drive

One of the first lessons of driving is to keep your eyes on the road at all times. This is because it is no secret how distracted driving can cause accidents and injuries. If you have been driving for some time now, you might have come across several distracted drivers. Imagine a car in front of you, moving irregularly and even honking doesn't seem to alert the driver. You drive past and notice them texting with the phone in their hand with one hand of the wheel. Sound familiar?
