Husband claims nursing home neglect caused his death of his wife

In Jasper, and elsewhere, people are often admitted to nursing facilities. They may be admitted for any number of reasons, including injury or illness. Depending on their health and conditions, some residents may require a significant amount of attention and care, which families depend on nursing home staff to provide. In some cases, failure to provide adequate care can result in patients suffering personal injury, or their existing conditions being worsened.

This can result in fatigued drivers, despite laws and regulations that are meant to prevent drivers from becoming over worked. Truck driver fatigue is among the leading causes for accidents involving these large commercial vehicles.
