What to do after a slip-and-fall accident

You may encounter a puddle of water while walking through the supermarket. Or maybe there is an ice patch in the parking lot. Perhaps you encounter some uneven steps on your way into a restaurant. The reality is that you could slip on something and lose your balance almost anywhere.

Sometimes, a fall leaves you with a bruised hip, and other times, your injuries may be more severe. Here is what you should do if you are involved in a slip-and-fall accident while on another person’s property.

Wrongful death: Woman, unborn child killed in California

Most people realize that there are certain risks associated with driving. As such, they take precautions to protect themselves, such as ensuring they are not under the influence of drugs or alcohol while driving. Unfortunately, there is sometimes little that they can do to protect themselves from others on the roadways who fail to take the same precautions. In fact, a woman and her unborn child were recently killed in a California crash allegedly caused by a drunk driver; her surviving family members may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit as a result.

The incident happened on a day in September. According to reports, a 28-year-old male driver, said to be a professional boxer, was speeding when his car entered oncoming traffic. Unfortunately, the vehicle is said to have collided head-on with a car driven by a 28-year-old woman.

California car accidents: 3 injured in DUI crash

Those who live in the United States likely feel safe in a variety of different places. One place that is almost always a place of security and sanctuary -- especially from car accidents -- is church. Unfortunately, a congregation in California may always question their safety after three congregants were injured when a suspected drunk driver plowed into a church.

The incident happened one afternoon on a day in September. Reports indicate that services had let out and were walking to a different designated area to congregate. Unfortunately, a vehicle reportedly crashed into some of them.

Fatal accident in California remains under investigation

There are drivers in California who take risks that put their lives -- as well as those they may encounter -- in danger. Unfortunately, even the safest of drivers are not always able to avoid the actions of the former. In fact, police are investigating a fatal accident that recently took the life of a driver.

The incident reportedly happened just after 11 a.m. on a day in late August. According to reports, a sedan was stopped at a red light. The vehicle was reportedly at a red light in a left turn lane as he waited to turn into a shopping center.

Car accidents: Drunk driver allegedly causes California pileup

Most drivers in California are aware of the necessary precautions need to ensure both their safety as well as the safety of those they may encounter while driving. Despite being aware of the importance of obeying speed limits and not driving while under the influence, some people still choose to disobey traffic laws, sometimes causing serious car accidents. Unfortunately, reports indicate that a 25-year-old mother was recently killed in a multi-car pileup allegedly caused by the actions of a driver who was under the influence.

The incident happened on a California roadway during the early morning hours of a day in late August. According to reports, a 22-year-old male was driving at over 100 mph. Police say that his vehicle struck another vehicle, creating wreckage in the center lane.

Signs of elder abuse and neglect to watch for

As loved ones age and need advanced care, it’s important to stay mindful of the potential dangers of elder abuse and mistreatment. No person at any age should experience mistreatment from those who should be caring for them.

Seniors may be particularly vulnerable to potential abuse, so it’s important their loved ones know what to watch for in case of mistreatment. Not all signs of abuse present in obvious ways. Mental and psychological mistreatment can greatly impact the lives and wellbeing of elder victims.

Wrongful death: 2 killed in California collision

Safe drivers in California and across the country are constantly on the lookout for others who may be driving in a way that could ultimately result in a crash. Unfortunately, not all unsafe behaviors can be anticipated or responded to in time to avoid an accident. In fact, two women were recently killed in an accident believed to have been caused by a person driving the wrong way while under the influence. The family may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit as a result.

The incident happened during the early morning hours of a day in August. According to reports, the deceased victims, a 74-year-old and 56-year-old mother-daughter pair, were headed east on a California freeway. Unfortunately, their car was struck by a vehicle police say was headed the wrong direction.

California car accidents: 2 killed, 3 injured; DUI suspected

When driving late at night with a car full of friends, there could be multiple things that could distract drivers -- especially those who are relatively inexperienced. When alcohol is thrown into the mix, the chance of tragic car accidents may be even higher. Unfortunately, police in California believe that alcohol was a factor in a recent crash that left two people dead.

The incident happened at approximately 4 a.m. on a day in August. According to reports, a car left the roadway before going off an overpass, falling approximately 150 feet. Two male 18-year-olds died at the scene of the accident. The three other occupants of the vehicle -- including the 18-year-old girl operating the vehicle -- suffered major injuries and were transported to the hospital.

Mental abuse of elderly may lead to physical deterioration

You may notice changes in your parent's physical health after a few months of living in a nursing home. You might assume old age is taking its effect on their mind and body, especially if they also suffer from dementia.

But a rapid decline in health can also be a sign of mental abuse or neglect by facility. You can't jump to conclusions, but you should take action. Start collecting evidence and speak with an attorney if you suspect your parent is being abused.

California wrongful death: Man killed in rollover crash

A car accident can happen at any moment. Because of this potential, drivers in California and across the country must remain vigilant at all times. Failing to do so could have serious consequences, potentially even resulting in a wrongful death.

Unfortunately, the California Highway Patrol is investigating a recent accident that resulted in a fatality. The incident happened one evening on a day in early August. Police claim that as the vehicle entered a curve, the 48-year-old driver allowed it to drift into oncoming lanes of traffic. To avoid a collision, police say, the driver turned sharply, causing him to lose control of the vehicle.
