Avoiding commercial accidents: Keeping yourself safe on the job

As a driver for UPS, you're on the road many hours a day. You do what you can to stay safe, but the reality is that driving techniques of those coming from other states (and even within your own) can significantly increase the risk of getting into a crash.

You see people fail to use turn signals in Kentucky, people speeding and weaving in Ohio and drivers who can't keep up with others in Indiana. Needless to say, the combination of all three states' driving techniques and laws as people come to Louisville and the surrounding areas don't make for safe travel conditions.

Oldham County nursing home facing a second lawsuit claiming abuse

Many Louisville area families have had to make some agonizing decisions on the care for their elderly loved one. Many older people prefer to stay at home for as long as possible.

When they are no longer able to care for themselves, they have to rely on their family to find them adequate care. A skilled nursing facility is usually best equipped to care for the elderly and these facilities are the best choice for many families.

Two Louisville-area nursing homes have poor care records

When a family has to make the agonizing decision of placing their loved one in a nursing home, it isn't a decision that comes lightly. But for many Louisville area residents, nursing homes offer a safe place when a loved one is no longer able to care for themselves. Unfortunately, not all nursing homes are the same and occasionally nursing home abuse occurs.

According to a report from two U.S. Senators, Kentucky is home to six nursing homes with poor care records, including two in the Louisville area.

Woman charged with murder for multi-vehicle crash

Louisville area residents understand the importance of driving safely. When a person chooses to engage in dangerous driving behavior such as texting and driving, speeding, or driving under the influence, they risk their lives along with everyone they meet along the way. A recent tragic car crash near Lexington highlights the importance of safe driving.

A recent accident on Interstate 75 in Lexington killed three people with the driver who caused the crash facing multiple murder charges. The woman driver was being chased by law enforcement in Clark County when she did a u-turn and began driving the wrong way on I-75. She drove the wrong way on I-75 before her truck struck two other vehicles in Lexington. As the result of the crash, three Kentucky women died. The driver has now been charged with three counts of murder along with first degree assault and wanton endangerment. Prior to this crash she was convicted four times for drunk driving and also had prior convictions of prostitution, shoplifting, public intoxication, among others. She is currently being held in the Fayette County jail.

Vaping poses unknown risks for consumers

Vaping, or use of e-cigarettes, is a quickly growing trend in the US, but it may not be as safe as consumers like you believe. These devices do not burn tobacco like traditional cigarettes, but instead use flavored liquid, heated until vaporized, which people then inhale. Flavor cartridges often still include nicotine which is an addictive and dangerous substance. Some also include marijuana.

E-cigarettes have a reputation as a safer alternative to smoking cigarettes, but even the most seemingly benign nicotine-free liquids may pose a risk. With nicotine involved the risks increase; the chemical can cause heart problems and increases the chance of heart attacks.

How can I protect my parent from nursing home abuse?

People are living longer lives and often remain physically able throughout the majority of their lifetime. However, mental degradation is becoming a more prominent issue, meaning that many older people suffer from mental conditions such as dementia. Dementia is one of the leading reasons why older people need to reside in nursing homes, and it makes them particularly vulnerable to abuse.

If you have recently taken the difficult decision to move your parent into a residential care unit, it is completely normal to have concerns. You may worry that they are confused about where they are, and you will hope that they adjust to the changes in a positive way. The majority of nursing home residents experience an increase in their quality of life as a result of the care they receive in nursing homes. However, others, unfortunately, experience abuse and neglect. The following are some things you can do to protect your parent from nursing home abuse.

Legal help with the costs of brain injuries

This blog has recently discussed the serious nature of brain injuries but it is also important for brain injury victims to understand what the costs of a brain injury are and what they can do about their losses. Brain injuries can take a lifetime to recover from and can be mild, moderate or severe which is why brain injury victims need to be familiar with personal injury legal protections to help them.

The cost of a brain injury can range with the severity of the injury and may cost up to $3 million for a severe traumatic brain injury; $941,000 for a moderate head injury; and $85,000 for a mild head injury. The total cost of care to treat a brain injury victim over a lifetime is estimated to be between $600,000 and $1.875 million. Brain injury costs include an estimated $31.7 billion in hospital costs each year and $9 to $10 billion in costs for acute and rehabilitative care for brain injury victims. The total costs of brain injuries annually is estimated at $48.3 million.

Work left undone in preventing kids’ brain injuries

Traumatic brain injuries remain common in the U.S. While their toll is $8 billion in pediatric medicine and lost work for parents, the price paid by child victims is incalculable. Consumer products and sports/recreation are involved in most childhood brain injuries, a new study finds.

Better design and choices in home furnishings and proper sports/recreation protection should make it possible to protect more children against these sometimes-devastating setbacks. To protect public safety, it’s important to continue pressure on companies that make and sell dangerous products.

Legal claims after a brain injury

The brain is the most vital part of the body. Unfortunately, many people have to lead their lives while coping with the aftereffects of a brain injury. While some of them are victims of accidents where no one was at fault, there are many victims whose brain injury was the result of someone else's negligence.

Some examples of such cases would include a birth-related brain injury that was caused by the negligence of health care providers; a brain injury sustained in an auto accident where the other driver was at fault; a brain injury resulting from a slip-and-fall accident on someone else's unmaintained property; and a brain injury that is the result of intentional harm that the victim was subjected to by someone else.
