Caregiver facing charges for alleged elder abuse

Aging is an evitable fact of life. As people age, many face a decline in physical and mental health. In some cases, elderly people may need constant care and family members may not be equipped to care for the elderly person. Thankfully, there are options such as assisted living facilities and in-care home to help the elderly receive the care they need. Families hope that these options will allow their loved ones to get the compassionate care and attention they need.

Comprehending distracted driving, consequences and liability

Let's say a driver is traveling on a Connecticut roadway and this driver witnesses another driver applying mascara in a moving vehicle during rush hour. Is this distracted driving?

Aches and pains happen to everyone every now and then. Some may even refer to them as growing pains, but no one expects such pains to be anything serious.

In a society where cars are an important form of transportation, pedestrians have to be very careful, particularly when crossing the streets.

Elder abuse on the increase

Keeping Your Loved One Safe in a Nursing Home

Patient sues doctor and hospital for negligence

When one least expects it, seeking medical attention and care may become necessary in some cases, such as when an individual falls and suffers a fracture or has another type of accident. Falls, accidents requiring medical care and other injuries can happen at any time, without notice to anyone. When such incidents occur, most people can rest assured that hospitals and doctors can tend to their needs. However, doctors are human and human beings can make errors. Particularly when doctors make mistakes such as failing to diagnose a condition, the patient may suffer harm due to negligence and may be entitled to compensation.
