Things to think about when choosing a nursing home

As people grow older, many will need someone to take care of them. Many families don't want to send their loved ones to a nursing home but it's sometimes the only viable option. Choosing a nursing home is a difficult decision, but an important one.

A brief look at the hours of service rules, and latest development on 34-hour restart, P.1

Anybody who pays attention to trucking safety news—if, indeed, any of our readers do—knows that the federal hours of service are somewhat of a hot topic at present. The hours of service rules, for those who have not heard of them, are rules administered by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration which apply to both property-carrying and passenger-carrying commercial vehicle drivers.

Seeking compensation in accidents involving teen drivers, P.2

In our previous post, we mentioned data showing that Mississippi is ranked very high in terms of teen motor vehicle accidents. We also began discussing the challenges accident victims can face in teen car accidents with obtaining compensation. In many cases, if not most, teen drivers are not going to be able to pay on a tort judgment, and this is why it is important for accident victims to pursue other liable parties as well, when possible.

Seeking compensation in accidents involving teen drivers, P.1

Nobody who gets behind the wheel of a motor vehicle is immune from making mistakes. Regardless of age, health, and any other factors, all drivers are at some risk of causing an accident on the roadway. That being said, there are some groups of drivers who present a greater overall risk, statistically speaking. Young, inexperienced drivers are one such group.

Looking at the issue of nursing home arbitration agreements, P.1

When adult children entrust an elderly parent to the care of a nursing home, they expect that the staff is properly licensed, trained and supervised, and that the facility will provide adequate care for the elderly parent. When nursing staff or the facility fails in its duty to provide care for a resident and serious injury or death results, family members should have the ability to seek compensation and hold the facility and nursing staff accountable.
