Nursing home staffing shortages endangers residents

One common cause of nursing home abuse is neglect. Many nursing homes in Ohio that have understaffing problems are unable to provide adequate care for their residents. It is a major misconception that many causes of nursing home abuse are from staff who refuse to care for their patients properly so they can live and function normally. However, it can also occur when nursing homes have high turnover rates because of understaffing issues. 

Summer hazards for Ohio pedestrians and cyclists

Summer is here, bringing sunshine and outdoor celebrations. Yet with it also comes hazards for those on the road. It may not seem like summer would be dangerous, but according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, more accidents occur during the summer months than during the winter ones.

Can you get punitive damages in a car accident case?

What to know about Ohio’s nursing homes

Ohio has the third most number of nursing facilities in the country, according to the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, with nearly 960 in the Buckeye state in 2015, the latest year on record. What this means is that a large percentage of Ohioans are either in a nursing home or have family or loved ones in such a facility.

Worker injuries due to the use of technology

Throughout the years the reasons that people file workers' compensation claims has changed. The use of technological devices in the workplace is part of why that is the case. This not only includes jobs where people use a computer all day, but also workers who use cell phones, tablets, and other kinds of technological advances on a repeat basis. Over time that can cause injuries to the hands and wrists, along with other areas.

Three documents to gather to strengthen your car accident claim

Following your car accident injury, the success of your insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit is largely dependent on your argument. Strengthening your argument requires detailed documentation of your experience. Detailed records and photographs go a long way in bolstering your demand letter or settlement negotiation.
