The perils of underground coal mining in Alabama

Underground mining has always been an extremely hazardous occupation, and despite technological advances, it remains dangerous. Whenever mining accidents occur, investigators usually determine the cause to be a combination of various hazards. Although safety authorities expect employers in the mining industry in Alabama to protect the health and safety of employees, you and your co-workers will remain at risk of suffering severe injuries during every underground shift you work.

Veterans groups slam nursing homes for lackluster patient care

For many Alabama families, the decision to put their elderly loved one in a nursing home is one that is met with hesitation and concern. These feelings are justified in that they are turning the care of their loved one over to other people who are supposed to be qualified, committed and professional health care workers who have the best interests of their patients and residents as their number one priority. 

Is your elderly parent at risk of wandering?

It can be hard to watch your parents get older, especially if they develop a cognitive disorder, such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. When making preparations to safeguard their aging, vulnerable parents from injuries when they become reliant on caregivers, Alabama residents need to remember that wandering and getting lost or injured is one of many risks their loved ones can face.

Using common sense to protect yourself in the workplace

Having a job is something to be proud of especially if your abilities and competencies are relied upon to help a department and company function successfully. Depending on the industry you work in, the hazards you face each day will be unique and require a degree of training, education and/or experience to safely navigate to complete your responsibilities with efficiency, effectiveness and most importantly, without compromising your safety. At The Sapp Law Firm, we have helped many people in Alabama to learn more about the value of workers' compensation. 

What is negligent entrustment?

Even with all of the efforts made to make Walker's roads safer, car accidents continue to be a constant problem. If and when you are involved in one, you might be understanding that such incidents may not be able to be avoided. Your opinion may quickly change, however, if you find out that the person that hit you had a history of reckless driving. Not only might your frustration focus on such a driver, but it also might extend to whomever allowed the driver access to a car. 

Combatting tired driving after the time change

The end of daylight savings time comes in the fall, and Alabama readers know this means they must turn their clocks back an hour. People often view this as getting an extra hour of sleep, but that is not always the case. Even with the additional hour in the early morning hours, the time change can lead to disruptions in sleep schedules and other routines.
