Most nursing homes are generally safe and secure. They provide good care and a high standard of living for their residents. Sometimes, though, patients are subjected to abuse and neglect at the hands of the staff. Finding out whether a current or prospective nursing home has a troubling history of providing substandard care or mistreating its patients is key to preventing abuse to you or your loved one.
Nursing home abuse is always unexpected and comes as a shock to patients, their friends and family. Society trusts nursing homes and assisted care facilities to take care of their patients, but this trust is sometimes misplaced. Making sure your family member does not suffer injuries takes a bit of research before enrolling them in a facility.

When we place a family member or other loved one in a nursing home, we trust they will be well cared for. Unfortunately, some employees of these elder care centers are not worthy of the trust society has placed in them.
They may neglect or abuse the people entrusted to their care. Generally, nursing home abuse falls into one of three categories: Physical, Emotional and Financial.

Motorcycle accidents are terrifying and dangerous. With very little protection from other vehicles and objects, riders are often severely injured. Data from the Wisconsin Traffic Operations and Safety Laboratory shows exactly how serious the injuries are. Between 1994 and 2013, there were 162 reported motorcycle crashes in Menomonee Falls. Fortunately, only one of them resulted in a fatal injury. The remaining injuries pain
According to data available from the Wisconsin Traffic Operations and Safety Laboratory, there were 480 fatal accidents involving motor vehicles in Waukesha County between 1994 and 2013.

In years past, divorce proceedings could only occur if there was evidence of spousal abuse, an extramarital affair, or abandonment, and BOTH parties consented to the divorce. However, this is no longer the case. With the implementation of the "No Fault" divorce provision in the 1970s, Wisconsin state law does not require an act of wrong-doing to file for divorce (though wrong doing acts may be taken into consideration when awarding alimony or dividing property). The only requirement needed to
Being in a car accident can be a terrifying experience. Everything happens so fast it can be easy to slip into a panic - especially if you don't know what to do at the scene. Below are some steps to follow when you've been in an auto accident.
Small claims court is a court where claims are limited to $10,000 or less (depending on the type of claim), and disputes may be resolved more quickly and inexpensively than in civil court. When you have a small claims case you may be led to believe you don’t need an attorney and won’t need any legal knowledge to understand your claim or the court process. Unfortunately, simply arriving at the court on time, being polite to the judge, a

This approach is not only welcomed, but encouraged by the insurance company. Insurance adjusters are well trained in using certain language with injured people. One of the primary purposes in their communications is to convince the injured party that they should not seek counsel. They will inform the injured that obtaining an att
