Is your loved one being neglected in the nursing home?

The elderly population is growing each year in America. More baby boomers are entering their golden years, and additionally, more seniors are living longer lives. Not all seniors can take care of themselves, leaving them vulnerable to caregivers, whether family or professional. In fact, the Administration on Aging believes the problem is much more widespread than reported. Even among residents of nursing homes, neglect is prevalent.

While most people need to drink a large amount of alcohol in order to surpass the blood alcohol content limit of 0.08 percent, recent findings are supporting the theory that you may actually be able to become intoxicated on very little alcohol. Some people, in fact, do not even need to swallow a drop of liquor in order to be drunk. Officials in Louisiana and around the country are becoming aware of auto-brewery syndrome, the phenomenon that may be causing you and other drivers to become intoxicated without knowing it.

What are some common shipyard injuries?

While you can be hurt in any line of work, there are certain types of injuries that are more common in Louisiana shipyards than in other areas.

There are several ways you can be injured while performing any of these tasks.

How can you prove a manufacturer defect?

When you purchase a product from the store, you expect that it will perform its intended job and operate with some form of quality that makes it worth your money.

Some product defects can cause serious harm to consumers, and some injured consumers may want to file a lawsuit seeking monetary compensation for their injuries. At Jacqueline A. Scott & Associates, we know that in these types of situations, consumers may have to prove what type of product defects occurred in order to have a successful case.
