Negligent behavior in nursing homes

Those who live in a nursing home deserve to be treated with respect and given adequate care. Sadly, this does not always mirror reality and nursing home residents have suffered in many ways due to the negligence of an employee working in the facility. If you live in a nursing home and suspect that this negligence has taken place, or if your loved one is currently residing in a nursing home and you believe that they have been abused or mistreated, taking action is critical. In Pennsylvania, this remains a persistent problem and it is essential for the victims and those related to them to address wrongdoing.

When rushing causes a traffic accident

We know that motor vehicle collisions happen for all sorts of reasons, whether they are brought on by poor road conditions (snow, ice, etc.) or a reckless driver's poor decision. However, any driver can find themselves in the middle of a motor vehicle accident and there are certain common behaviors that can greatly increase the chances of a crash. For example, someone who is rushing around because they have an appointment or need to get somewhere by a specific time may be far more likely to find themselves in a wreck.

Obtaining workers' comp over a work-related traffic crash

If you were injured in an accident that recently occurred while you were carrying out your duties as a taxi driver, truck driver, or another job which requires driving, you could be struggling to work through any number of difficult problems. Aside from mental trauma, such as flashbacks or even depression, you could be having a hard time with hospital bills or even day-to-day expenses. As a result, it is vital for you to look into different resources that you could use to move forward with your life, such as workers' compensation, depending on how the accident occurred.

A closer look at repetitive stress injuries

People are hurt at work in many different ways, whether they sustain an injury on a construction site or are hurt in a workplace accident that occurs on the road. However, it is also important to bear in mind that some workplace injuries happen in work environments that may be seem as relatively risk-free. For example, an office worker who may not be exposed to as many work-related hazards as those employed in other fields could suffer an injury due to repetitive stress.

Landlord responsibilities for injuries on grounds and parking lots

Depending on the type of rental and lease agreement you have, your landlord may or may not be responsible for maintaining walkway and parking lot areas and keeping them free from ice, snow, and hazards. Some instances in which your landlord has the responsibility of maintenance are:

Recovering from an auto accident that occurred while working

On a daily basis, many workers face an array of stressors while carrying out their job responsibilities. In some instances, these duties may require them to drive. For some people, their job revolves around driving, such as a trucker or taxi driver. For others, an employer may ask them to run an errand, which can lead to a crash. If you were hurt in a crash while working, our law firm realizes the diverse challenges you could be working through and believes that you should protect your rights.

Why face your child backward in a car seat?

While any type of motor vehicle accident can be devastating to all those involved, when a baby or toddler is in the vehicle the situation can become even emotional and sometimes tragic. Through the use of car seats, boosters, and safety harnesses, babies and young children have become safer while in the vehicle and at less of a risk of becoming injured during a motor vehicle accident.

Dash cams and car crash evidence

After a crash, many questions often arise for those involved. From determining who was responsible for the accident to evaluating the consequences of the crash, there are many facets of a collision that victims may need to go over. For some, dash cams are incredibly beneficial, since the footage from these devices can show exactly what took place on the road. If you were hit by a reckless driver and captured the incident on camera, you should carefully go over the footage you have.
