You may have a claim if you fall outside a business

When it's snowing, it's hard to keep up with the slick conditions outside. While business owners may try to shovel sidewalks and salt areas to reduce the likelihood of ice developing, there's no guarantee that these conditions won't continue to build up.

Drivers have to do all they can to pay attention to the road and obey the rules of the road. When a driver isn't paying attention, falls asleep or makes an error, others may end up paying the consequences. This is why it's so pressing for drivers to put down their phones, get enough rest and to be prepared to drive.

Falls in nursing homes: A risk to residents

An elderly person who enters a nursing home may already be at a higher risk of falls due to imbalances. Medications taken may make them dizzy or lightheaded, which can also lead to unexpected falls. Combined with weakness, bad knees or other factors, there's no wonder why so many people fall in nursing homes.

Understaffing at nursing homes can negatively impact residents

The cost of placing someone in a nursing home often seems astronomical. Depending on the location and the level of care required by the resident, the cost is likely to be several thousand dollars each month. Families often struggle to afford that much, even if the older adult in nursing care had substantial assets at one point. Only a few years in a nursing home can quickly eat through a significant estate.

Why should you report nursing home abuse or neglect?

When you place your loved one in a nursing home, the last thing you would expect is to find out that they've passed away suddenly. You may have many questions about what happened and why, especially if they were not ill or in poor physical shape.
