For many families, nursing homes are an invaluable asset. We sleep a little easier at night knowing that trained staff are ensuring loved ones’ end of lives are as comfortable as possible. Unfortunately, nursing homes do not always provide the level of care our loved ones deserve. Nursing home abuse is shockingly common. If you have a loved one in a nursing home, it is important you know how to spot the signs of elder abuse—and your personal injury legal options if it is happening.
Each year, many employees are injured on the job, and each year we receive many questions from employees wondering if they “really” deserve compensation for their injury. After all, it’s part of the job, right? Wrong. Whether your job involves heavy construction or pushing paper is irrelevant to whether or not you deserve compensation for an injury caused by your work. Suffering physical harm is never in anyone’s job responsibilities, and if you’ve been injured because of your job you deserve to know what your options are.
Sexual assault is a heinous crime that can impact victims for the rest of their lives. As the #MeToo movement has illustrated, it is a disturbingly common and growing problem that affects many of us. Unfortunately, even in 2019, the criminal justice system does not always treat sexual assault victims fairly, and many sexual assault victims either lose at court or don’t even bother bringing their case to court for fear of the extreme and often degrading levels of scrutiny such a proceeding can bring to them.
Law enforcement officers have a dangerous job, and they do incredible work to keep our communities safe. The men and women on the front lines of fighting crime deserve the utmost respect and our gratitude for the difficult and necessary actions they must take every day. While the overwhelming majority of police officers are professionals who treat citizens with respect, there are unfortunately some law enforcement officers who do not bring honor to the blue uniform.
It seems like police brutality, misconduct, and officer involved shootings are always in the news.
