Recognizing neglect and abuse in Alabama nursing homes

Making the decision to put a loved one in a nursing home can be a difficult one for people in Jasper, and throughout Alabama. Unfortunately, abuse and neglect are relatively common occurrences in these types of facilities. The fear that your family member may suffer such mistreatment can further complicate this choice. At The Sapp Law Firm, L.L.C., we often consult with families who are unsure how to know whether a loved one is suffering abuse or neglect in a nursing home. In this post then, we will discuss some common signs of nursing home abuse and neglect.

1 killed, 3 injured in Foley drunk driving accident

When people in Jasper, and throughout Alabama, make the decision to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol, they are putting themselves, and others, in danger. The effects of alcohol, as well as illegal drugs, can impact their ability to safely control and operate their vehicles. As a result, car accidents may occur, which can cause injuries to them, other drivers, passengers and bystanders.

Alabama hospital staff and the dangers they face in the workplace

Hospitals in Alabama, and throughout the U.S., are staffed by a variety of workers, including doctors, nurses, technicians, administrative employees, cooks and facilities management staff. Many would assume that, being in health care facilities, these employees work in one of the safest workplaces. However, work accidents and incidents can, and do, result in a range of injuries for hospital staff. In 2013, 6.4 hospital employees for every 100 full-time workers suffered injuries in the workplace, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Alabama man loses his life in motorcycle accident

Every year, far too many motorcyclists lose their lives and suffer serious injuries in accidents that should have been avoided. Whether they were hit by a speeding driver or someone who was not paying attention to the road, drivers in Jasper, Walker and throughout the state of Alabama need to be aware of motorcyclists and drive safely at all times. From broken bones to medical expenses and loss of life, the potential consequences of a motorcycle accident are very serious. Furthermore, it is crucial for those who have lost a loved one or suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident that was caused by an irresponsible driver to take action right away.
