Elder abuse awareness is vital for their safety

Elder abuse is a serious problem across the United States. No family wants to see a loved one hurt by negligent or abusive nurses or other medical professionals, but it does happen. Fortunately, you can fight back if someone abuses someone you love.

The Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine recently recognized Elder Abuse Awareness Day on June 15, 2017. This is this one day that he takes to focus on the importance of recognizing abuse among the elderly. This abuse can happen anywhere, including in hospitals, nursing homes or other locations.

Can you get hurt from chemicals or diseases in pools?

One thing that could put a damper on your summer is a parasitic infection. One that you may need to worry about is called cryptosporidium. This germ makes people sick and can cause severe diarrhea for up to three weeks. It could lead to dehydration and other health concerns as well.

While this germ is easy to pick up from infected public or private pools, it's more important to know what not to do to get rid of it. Chlorine doesn't work well to kill the germ, so no one should increase the amount of chlorine in the water in order to kill the germ. By increasing chlorine, you actually risk a more serious problem from chlorine gas.

Texting and driving is a danger in Ohio

In Ohio, texting and driving is against the law. If you're distracted by texting, there are seconds where you're not looking at the road. When that happens, your vehicle has the potential to drift. Vehicles that try to cross your path may move in a way where you need to brake, but without looking, you'll hit them.

It's for those reasons that distracted driving is frowned upon and that texting and driving is illegal in Ohio. If a driver is texting and driving, he or she could cause an accident that takes lives.

You can hold nursing homes liable for their actions

When your loved one enters a nursing home, you want to be sure that everything goes according to plan. You want the nursing care providers to treat your loved one like their own family and to do what is best for him or her. The point of moving a loved one into a nursing home is typically to make sure that he or she gets the care needed around the clock. Finding out that isn't happening can be devastating.

Fortunately, nursing homes can be held liable for nursing home-related injuries in many cases. For example, if your loved one presses a call button to get help using the restroom but falls because no one comes for over a half hour, the nursing home could be held liable for negligence.

What happens when you're in a high-speed crash?

When you're in a car crash, a number of things happen to your body. You suffer an impact at sometimes incredible speeds, and the damage can be devastating. What really happens during a crash, though, and how could it impact your body?

It depends on the angle you hit. For a head-on collision with a stationary object, you're likely to hit at an angle. Since you don't normally hit squarely, that means that you'll continue to move at the angle of impact. The front airbag may not come out at an angle that is as helpful to you, which could result in more serious injuries.

3 helpful ways to avoid crashing your car in Toledo

Toledo is a busy area with lots to see and do. You love living there with your family, but you also know that the traffic can be difficult to deal with. The roads aren't always maintained well, and drivers passing through to Michigan may not follow all of Ohio's traffic laws.

In 2014, there were 27 fatal traffic crashes in Toledo, Ohio. Fourteen of those involved intoxicated people. A total of 29 people were killed out of 68 involved in the collisions.

What you need when you talk to an attorney about a vehicle recall

A vehicle defect or recall can affect your ability to drive and puts your life in danger. A recall means that the vehicle you drive is not safe, and a defect that isn't recalled could be putting you in danger each time you're behind the wheel.

If you are in a car accident and believe your vehicle had a defect that caused it, your attorney can help. Why would you want to work with an auto-defects attorney? These attorneys help by listening to facts and information about the case, getting to know what you expect and letting you know what options you may have.

Man killed in tragic early-morning crash in Toledo

Car crashes occur for many reasons, and if you've lost a loved one in an accident, you probably want to know the cause. The sad truth is that sometimes, no cause is ever discovered, or it can be near impossible to find out. Despite this, it's still possible to prove that the other driver was at fault and to receive compensation for your losses.

That may be what the family of this man wants to do, since he was killed in a two-car crash that may have been preventable. According to the news from April 23, the crash occurred when a vehicle driven by a 26-year-old man collided with the 54-year-old man's vehicle during the morning rush hour. The 26-year-old man was reportedly driving westbound with a 24-year-old passenger when the vehicle crossed the center line.

Why would you want a structured settlement plan?

There are many good things about structured settlements, but there are a few things you should keep in mind. A structured settlement plan is just one way you can receive your settlement.

3 serious injuries you face after a motorcycle accident

One of the most common types of motorcycle accidents takes place when a driver pulls out from a side street and crosses in the motorcyclist's path. Left-turn accidents like this happen so fast that motorcyclists have little time to slow down or stop to avoid the collision. These incidents are usually the fault of the driver who pulled out into the motorcyclist's lane prematurely.

There are a number of injuries that occur more commonly in these accidents than others. For example, if a rider isn't wearing a helmet, it's more likely that he or she will suffer a traumatic brain injury. Other common injuries include those to the neck, upper torso and legs.
