When we place our loved ones in the care of a nursing home, we expect they will receive quality care. Unfortunately, nursing home negligence and abuse are all too common due in part to overworked nurses, under-trained staff, and/or a simple lack of interest by nursing home staff. A lawsuit may be the only way to seek justice and compensation for damages. It may also be a means to improve safety and quality of care.

An 84-year-old Virginia woman was admitted to a nursing home in September 2015, with varying degrees of cognitive impairment. She relied on nursing staff for medical services and to help her bathe, eat and dress. One day, her daughter received an anonymous phone call from a staff member at the facility, telling her about an incident and that she should check on her mother’s well-being. That call eventually led to a lawsuit against the nursing home, its administrator, the director of nursing, two nurses and the facility’s management company.

According to the claim, the resident was tied to a wheelchair with bed sheets and injected with a powerful narcotic drug in an effort to keep her quiet. The physical and chemical restraints forced on the elderly woman were reportedly kept in place overnight, according to the complaint.

Every year, thousands of people receive that phone call we all dread—news that a loved one has been killed in an auto accident. The news is not only a sudden shock, but emotionally and physically debilitating. Even before the reality of it all wears off, many families will face unforeseen financial challenges as they are suddenly forced to deal with medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and additional financial hurdles due to lost income.

While no one can ever put a value on a life, it is important for the family to understand their legal rights to pursue a wrongful death claim. An experienced attorney can help guide victims through their legal options to recover the maximum possible compensation.

The driver of a Chevy Impala was turning left into a parking lot when he was struck by another vehicle speeding at an estimated 100 mph. The crash sent the Impala spinning at least 75 feet into a Toyota Highlander. The Impala was so mangled that it was hardly recognizable; the Mercedes that hit it was crushed to at least three feet shorter than normal, according to reports.

Driver fatigue and falling asleep behind the wheel are major causes of car crashes. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration there may be as many as 100,000 crashes from driver fatigue each year, with an estimated 1,550 deaths and 71,000 people injured.

A jury recently awarded a permanently disabled man $8.7 million resulting from an auto accident lawsuit caused by a severely fatigued driver who fell asleep at the wheel.

The accident occurred in January 2014 when a group of seven crew members were on their way home from a 22-hour, non-stop shift at a Texas mill. The driver of the vehicle was traveling 70 mph when he allegedly fell asleep at the wheel and rear-ended a school bus picking up children at a RV park. Three men in the van were killed; four others were injured. No one on the school bus was injured.

The litigation process can take several months to years depending on the complexity of your case. While waiting on a legal settlement, you may feel stress and anxiety regarding to money and how you pay the bills and put food on the table.

Imagine that you’ve been seriously injured in an auto accident. You are unable work and the bills are piling up. You hired an attorney to help you with your claim, but things are moving slowly. You need money know or the utilities will be turned off. You could soon lose your home.

Creditors don’t care that you are in a pending lawsuit. They don’t care that the wheels of justice are turning slowly. They don’t want to hear that you will achieve a large settlement and once that happens, your bills will be paid. They want their money, and they want it now!

So what can you do?

An epidural injection is used to alleviate pain felt from by a herniated or bulging disk or spinal stenosis; it is also used during child birth and before performing surgeries. While an epidural injection is supposed to numb the pain it can sometimes cause the opposite effect leading to serious health risks and complications.

If you or someone you love has suffered from serious health complications after an epidural injection, it is advisable to contact a personal injury attorney. Once you file a medical malpractice lawsuit, if you are suffering immediate financial loss, contact a Lawsuit Financial, a leader in providing no-risk lawsuit cash advances during pending litigations.

A woman has filed a lawsuit alleging she suffered a spinal injury in April 2015, after an epidural for surgery. The lawsuit states that she suffered from a severe cervical spinal cord injury, which further resulted in disability, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and aggravation of a pre-existing condition. The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to document the location of the needle and catheter before performing the injection. The complaint also states that the doctor allegedly failed to recognize that he was injecting directly into the spinal cord and/or thecal sac. The plaintiff seeks a trial by jury and an undisclosed amount in compensation.

Patients depend on doctors and other medical professionals for their health and well-being. Yet, carelessness and negligence still occurs when doctors, hospitals, or medical professionals deviate from the recognized “standard of care” in treating a patient. When a medical error or negligence that could have been avoided causes a patient injury or death, it is medical malpractice.

When doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals are negligent, they should be held accountable for harm done. The first step in filing a medical malpractice lawsuit is to speak with an experienced attorney about your case. An attorney can help guide you in order to determine whether you have a viable case.

If an attorney takes your case and files a lawsuit, it doesn’t mean road to justice will be easy. Unfortunately, in most cases hospitals, doctors, and other health care professionals are not willing to accept blame for negligence. They will hire a high-powered legal team that will deny, delay, and defend the claim as long as possible. As the litigation process drags on, you may face the risk of financial ruin; you may even be unable to afford basic living expenses.

Although slip and fall accidents are more prevalent during the winter – when roads and walkways are often covered in snow and/or ice – many other conditions can increase the risk of a slip and fall accident, such as defective stairs or walkways, improper lighting, fallen debris, wet floors without “wet floor” caution signs, and falling merchandise.

While many slip and fall accidents are preventable, some are not. Injuries can range from mild to severe. Fortunately, most people walk away with only a few cuts, scrapes and bruises. Other times, these accidents result in broken bones, concussions, short-term or long-term disabilities, and more. They may require surgery and physical therapy.

Just because you were injured does not automatically result in liability on the property owner. As with any type of slip and fall accident, the proper owner is generally only liable if he or she knew about the problem – or should have known about the problem – and failed to fix it.

The first pair of wrongful-death lawsuits have been filed on behalf of the victims of the Ghost Ship warehouse fire in Oakland, California during a dance party on December 2. Officials say 36 people died in the blaze.

According to reports, the Ghost Ship was much more than just a simple warehouse. It was a well-known “live-work” warehouse. Artists used a portion of the main floor as studio space and dozens reportedly lived there. Dance parties typically occurred on the second floor.

The lawsuits claim the building was a death trap. It was in violation of city codes and under dangerous conditions that included exposed dangling wires, makeshift heating from propane tanks, no running water, no sprinkler system, non-working smoke alarms, no fire extinguishers, and a labyrinth of flammable materials. The second floor was only reachable by a rickety staircase made of pallets. Once the fire broke out, it was impossible for most of the people inside to escape.
