The basic principle of insurance is that a policyholder pays money called premiums to "insure" for the risk of a future loss event. Despite lots of specific definitions of what is covered in the policy contract, there sometimes a disagreement as to whether the incident is "covered".

There is little debate that trucking accidents cause devastating injuries. The injuries suffered may be life altering and even deadly. One of the worst injuries suffered from a truck crash is a traumatic brain injury, also called a TBI.

A serious fall accident at great heights or on a hard surface can cause severe injury or even fatality to victims. Fall accidents are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury in the United States, and the second leading cause of spinal cord injury. When a property owner’s negligence becomes the cause of a serious injury fall accident to a guest, the wrongfully injured individual can rightfully claim compensation for all of the losses and expenses incurred as a result of the accident.

Because Sutter County and much of Sacramento Valley is deeply rooted in agriculture and production, thousands of trucks are routed through the county, transporting goods to and from the area. And while trucking is an essential part of these communities, the large trailer trucks that travel throughout the county also pose a serious danger to other travelers.
For some senior living operators, it seems like the regulatory laws that apply to their facilities are simply too burdensome. After all, operators of nursing homes and assisted living facilities are subject to laws that are designed to protect their predominately elderly residents from harm. It goes without saying that complying with some of these laws can be difficult.
Illinois does not require a specific staff to patient ratio for Illinois nursing home facilities. The responsibility lies on each facility to determine the staffing needs to meet the needs of its residents. (Section 300.1230 – Staffing)
Category RSS $8 Million Verdict to Nursing Home after They Play Dumb about the Origin of Patient's Injuries
Following a two week trial and several hours of deliberations, a Kentucky jury has awarded the family of a deceased nursing home patient $8 million in damages for the errors made related to the care of the patient during an admission in 2008. Categorically, the damages were apportioned: $2 million for pain and suffering, $1 million for violation of the Kentucky Nursing Home Statute and $5 million in punitive damages against the nursing home according to news reports in the Carrier-Journal.
With a sizable percentage of nursing home patients diagnosed with diabetes, we have been contacted by a number of current and former clients regarding a product recall involving Medtronic's MiniMed Paradigm insulin pumps. The medical device recall was initiated in July, 2009 after defects were discovered in a particular lot of the infusion sets.
Illinois Officials Begin Examination of Nursing Home Procedures Following Elopement of Alzheimer's Patient
The Chicago area has been struck by a snap of arctic weather lately. It’s the kind of weather that quickly brings a chill to every part of your body regardless of how quickly you can do what needs to be done and get back to a warm area.

In a recent news story, two people were seriously hurt in a boating accident in Long Island when the boat crashed in Patchogue sometime after midnight. The driver was arrested and charged with boating while intoxicated, and the other passenger was taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries. Even though this accident was caused because the driver was acting recklessly, boating accidents occur more frequently than most people realize.

Hygiene in hospitals is not as high of a priority as one would expect. When people don't feel well, they see a doctor. They probably assume that the doctor will not spread anything to them to make them sicker. Ohio residents may be disturbed to find out that hygiene in hospitals is not as high of a priority as one would expect.

An estimated 100,000 people per year die in hospitals around the country from preventable errors and over the years this situation has only worsened. About 10 years ago a study from the Institute of Medicine was released. It estimated that 100,000 people per year died in hospitals around the country from preventable errors. Ohio residents will be disappointed to know the situation has only worsened.

Unfortunately, there is not yet a way to securely avoid accidents from happening. There is also not yet a way to avoid personal injuries caused by these accidents. However, there is something that can be done about it, particularly when the incident occurs on site a person’s place of employment.

A recent meeting of court reporting firm owners from across the country began with an ice breaker. In two minutes each table was challenged to list as many things lawyers do that frustrate us. As a representative from each table read off their lists, among growing laughter and groans, clear trends were revealed. It seems the top five ways to sour your relationship with your court reporter are:

Preventable hospital mistakes range from U.S. surgeons operating on the wrong person or body part, happening as much as 40 times per week, to a hospital staff member’s failure to properly disinfect a room or wash his hands. The landscape of the modern medical system at first can seem quite picturesque. American hospitals are capable of great feats: saving lives, curing disease, and inventing new procedures.

Massive amounts of damage can be caused by car accidents. The force of speed and the large mass of a vehicle all contribute to the severity that is witnessed in the different types of car accidents that can occur. Car accidents occur every day, with millions occurring each year. Many are reported to police and insurance companies, while some may be handled by the parties involved themselves.

In the case of Zoloft, this was prescribed to pregnant women by doctors who truly believed they were not risking the health of the unborn child. And the mother trusted the judgment of the doctor. What nobody counted on, was that manufacturer of Zoloft may have known of these unacceptable risks, yet did nothing to warn pregnant women of these dangers.

A devastating occurrence to those it affects, nursing home abuse happens all over the country with thousands of cases being reported and many that are not. It can be more than just physical abuse and should be looked out for so it can be prevented. In the U.S. there are over 16,000 nursing homes caring for the elderly citizens of the country.

The state of Florida is known for its mandatory No Fault Insurance, also known as Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Insurance, which covers Florida drivers up to the limits of their insurance policy regardless of fault. This insurance plan covers a driver’s children, members of their household and other certain passengers who lack PIP Insurance as long as they do not own a vehicle.

Being injured while on the job can be both a physically and emotionally draining process. Dealing with the physical pain as a result from an accident can be debilitating and frustrating—especially if it interferes with how you perform at work.

Food poisoning affects thousands each year. Many cases go unreported, often resolving on their own. While others can cause serious damage to those they infect. When you decide to eat out, rather than making dinner at home you are doing so with the belief that a restaurant has taken care in the meals they prepare. This includes using the required sanitary techniques, properly storing and preparing food and ensuring nothing has passed its expiration date.
Not all lawsuits are filed individually by a single person who has decided to take legal action for the personal harms that were inflicted upon them. Instances which involve injury or illness to a large group of people can be acted upon in the form of a class action lawsuit.
If you ask government inspectors, the answer is a resounding--- YES. Today, psychiatric drugs-- and anti-psychotic drugs in particular-- are prescribed to an astounding 14% of all nursing home patients. The bulk of the psychiatric drugs are administered to patients with dementia or Alzheimer's in order to calm their potentially aggressive behaviors.
Next week attorney David Terry and I will be exchanging blog-posts on perhaps the most common-- yet under-appreciated medical condition effecting patients in nursing homes and hospital-- Bed Sores. Used interchangeably with the terms: pressure sore, pressure ulcer or decubitus ulcer, most people have little appreciation of the real devastation that bed sores cause until they see one first hand.
We look to environmental causes of falls....cluttered hallways...improperly footwear...yet in many fall-related situations the real 'cause' of the fall lies within the person herself... Hypotension (low blood pressure) is a problem for many nursing home residents, causing dizziness and fainting.
Commonly known as C. Diff, Clostridium Difficile is a bacterium commonly found in the colon of healthy people. C. Diff can become a problem when the body’s natural defenses are slashed in effectiveness with the introduction of antibiotics that are typically used to treat various illnesses. Especially in older patients or those on in a weakened condition, the introduction of antibiotics may allow the C. Diff can bacteria to rapidly multiple causing serious illness or even death.
I've come to accept that the physical responsibilities placed upon nursing home staff are completely unrealistic. The desire of management and administrators to maximize the individual productivity of nursing home workers may appear to be an admirable proposition on paper--- yet, fails when it comes to providing quality care for patients.
Yesterday we discussed potential signs of mistreatment or abuse in a day care setting. Today we continue our discussion regarding child abuse as we consider the signs of various types of abuse. While many of these topics are exceptionally troubling, as parents it is important to pay attention to changes in the behavior of our children and recognize the importance of addressing these issues head on.
My heart goes out to the families across the globe who have lost loved ones due to a fire at an Australian nursing home. The death toll now stands at nine, while many other patients at the nursing home remain hospitalized in intensive care from injuries related to smoke inhalation and burns.
Study Shows Nursing Home Patients with Dementia Likely to Suffer an Injurious Fall When Taking Antidepressants
It's no secret that falls in the elderly nursing home population remain one of the largest threats to patient’s safety and overall well-being. Recognizing this threat, nursing homes must assess each patient for their potential fall-risk and create a plan of care to reduce the incidence of falls during their stay at the facility.
The family of a deceased woman has filed a lawsuit against a large health care company that was responsible for maintaining her health. The lawsuit names Addus Healthcare as a defendant in two count complaint alleging that the company’s negligence during a short-term stay, resulted in numerous medical complications that contributed to the patient’s death.
The family of a deceased Illinois man is suing the VIP Manor nursing home in Wood River, saying the facility was responsible for their family member’s death. The Madison-St Clair Record reports that Thomas Woodward, 52, was taken from VIP Manor to a hospital in Effingham, IL in March, 2010. [Caption: The VIP Manor nursing home is one of 35 care centers managed by Cypress Health Care.]
Recognizing that the development of a bed sore during an admission to a hospital as something that simply should not occur, many facilities have begun to categorize their development for what they truly are a serious medical error. Bed sores now join a list of dreadful occurrences such as: operations on the wrong body part, patient suicides, foreign objects left in during surgery and deadly falls in the hospital as situations that simply shouldn't occur in the presence of proper medical care.
Contrary to what some medical facilities suggest, the development of pressure sores during an admission to a facility is not an inevitable part of getting older or something that simply coincides with some medical conditions. Rather, pressure sores are overwhelmingly the result of inattentive care on the part of the facility.
One of the more difficult social responsibilities that we have is serving on a jury. In addition to the obvious inconvenience and time away from family and work responsibilities, jurors have the difficult task of determining who to believe in a situation where completely contradictory explanations of an incident are being offered.
The origins of pressure sores have been well documented for centuries--- the combination of unrelieved pressure and force put upon the body. However, from a technological perspective, relatively little progress has been made towards reducing the rates pressure sores in patients with heightened risk factors.
Use of Restraints with Nursing Home Patients has been Reduced More Than 50% Over the Last Decade is it Enough?
When you consider forms of cruel treatment, maybe you consider beds of nails or solitary confinement? However, another form of cruel treatment-- the use of restraints, is commonly used with innocent nursing home patients. At some facilities, patient restraints are a commonly used tool used by facilities in lieu of providing actual hands-on patient care by facility staff.
Even after tending to bleeding on the jaw of a resident at their facility following an altercation with another resident, staff at Sky West Assisted Living Center failed to seek out any outside medical attention for the resident. It wasn’t until the resident’s family insisted that the resident be taken to a hospital was it discovered that the man’s jaw was fractured in five places, his eye socket was broken and he had fractures in his cheek bone.

Precaution should be used when operating any type of vehicle; motorcycles are not exception to this rule. Failure to take precaution or the negligence of another can leave drivers with serious personal injuries. For many people operating a motorcycle can be an enjoyable and convenient way to get around. It is both fuel efficient, easier to maintain as well as being a fun experience.

For millions of Americans, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and other social media websites have become an integral part of our daily lives. As an outlet to share events, photos, and thoughts with friends and family, many of us post content without taking any (or very little) consideration to the possible ramifications our actions may have later down the road.
Another sexual abuse lawsuit has been filed in Chicago on behalf of a teenage boy who was sexually abused by a priest over the course of several years at St. Agatha Catholic Church on the city’s West Side. In addition to alleging that the boy was abused by admitted sex offender Daniel McCormack, the lawsuit places blame on the Archdiocese of Chicago for allowing McCormack to remain at the church--- and in direct contact with children--- after similar allegations of sex abuse had surfaced.
As the problems associated with the DePuy hip implant devices begin to mount, particular attention is now focused on difficulties associated with metal-on-metal hip devices. Over the years, metal hip replacement and resurfacing devices accounted for more than 33% of the surgical hip implant market. As the problems associated with the DePuy hip implant devices begin to mount, particular attention is now focused on difficulties associated with metal-on-metal hip devices.
The other day, I went with my son to the quaint Whole Foods in Chicago (yeah right, 80,000 sq. feet of organic, raw bliss!!) to pick up some groceries. After parking, we took two-- huge escalator rides-- down to the main shopping levels. Maybe it’s simply a part of stores' expansion, but it seems like there's a lot more escalators moving us around.
Pharmacists play an essential role in the well being of nursing home patients by filling physician prescriptions and in many cases keeping track of all the medications each patient takes to assure there are no contraindications in mixing different drugs. Obviously, keeping track of medications is an difficult but important job.
In a settlement agreement with the U.S. Attorney, the operator of 18 nursing homes in Tennessee and Mississippi has agreed to reimburse the government $ 2 million related to allegations of fraudulent billing practices at its facilities. Further, according to the terms of the settlement, the nursing home will implement an internal fraud-monitoring program and will train its employees on compliance with Medicare rules.
Wow, this past weekend brought some incredibly summer-like conditions to Chicago. The temps were in the 80's, the sun was out and yes--- the dogs were running with excitement around every park and neighborhood. While I share the dogs' excitement to be outside after being cooped up all winter, I was really shocked by how many dogs were allowed to mingle with young children at playgrounds-- without any leash!
Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (“SJS”) is a systemic disorder that affects the skin and mucous membranes, usually caused by a severe drug reaction. SJS often begins with flu-like symptoms (fever, sore throat, cough, burning eyes), then progresses to red or purple rashes and blisters (photos), especially around the mouth, nose, eyes.
Boating, tubing, and other water sports and activities can provide fun and enjoyment for families when the weather is warm. However, these pleasurable activities can also be dangerous for young children, resulting in injury or even death. According to statistics from the U.S. Coast Guard, injuries and property damages related to boating accidents can not be ignored: In 2009, there were 4,370 boating accidents causing 3,358 injuries and 736 deaths and $36 million in damages to property.
Beauty and cosmetology treatments should be an enjoyable and relaxing experience. However, some salons and spas operate in unsanitary conditions, which could put you and your health at risk. Thankfully many states have implemented laws to help keep us safe.
With the warmer temperatures, many are rushing out to nail salons to get beautiful nails to show off in their sandals. Sadly, you may be getting more than you bargain for when many salons and aestheticians fail to use basic hygiene.
