Trucks are essential to transport goods across our country, and their drivers are typically well-trained and certified to drive the large, heavy vehicles that take over highways. When truck drivers aren’t vigilant, sober, well-rested, or properly trained, they can cause serious accidents with other drivers on the road. If they collide with a regular sized vehicle, that’s when the injuries can be catastrophic and even deadly.

When your concussion symptoms last longer than the expected recovery time, it’s possible you have post-concussion syndrome (PCS). These are also known as persistent post-concussive symptoms.

Since this injury deals with your brain, it’s important to talk to your doctor immediately to see if you have PCS.

The COVID 19 pandemic has showed many of us that parts of or society weren’t functioning as smoothly as we thought they were.

Before the pandemic, many families thought these were the best places for their older loved ones to spend the rest of their lives and receive great care. However, COVID has shown us that that’s not always true. It’s possible that families will be more apt to caring for their elderly loved ones for as long as possible before sending them to long-term care facilities.

Many nursing homes have been bought into the private sector since 2009. The big question that this presents is whether or not private ownership of nursing homes has a positive effect on the residents and their health.

If your loved one has been abused or neglected in their nursing home, whether it was privately or publicly owned, they deserve justice for the injuries and other damages that they suffered. With the help of a nursing home abuse lawyer from Shrager & Sachs, you’ll be able to defend the rights of your loved one and ensure the negligent party is held responsible for the harm they caused your older relative in their care.

When you trust a nursing home to take care of your elderly and vulnerable loved one, you expect them to have the appropriate knowledge to ensure that they are as healthy as possible. Unfortunately, not every long-term care facility will ensure that your loved one gets the best care possible and will put cutting costs above the standard of care they provide. When that happens, it can lead to abuse, negligence, and even death for the residents.

Intersections are where most accidents take place because they involve traffic and pedestrians crossing paths and require them to strictly follow signs and signals.
