Family members, not nursing homes, worst offenders of elder abuse

When you think of elder abuse, what comes to mind? For many people, the answer probably has to do with nursing home negligence or abuse. Unfortunately, many people assume that nursing home staff members often take advantage of or harm the residents who are under their care.

Truck accident in New York leads to multiple vehicle pileup

Truck accidents can result in serious injuries, but sometimes those accidents are caused by things out of your control. Did you have to swerve to avoid someone? Did your brakes just fail to work? These are things that should be considered in any case. If your truck accident case is heading to court, you may want to speak with an attorney about your right to representation. You shouldn't have to be charged for things that were out of your control or an act of nature.

Brain death hard to understand, even for doctors

Two heartbreaking medical cases have been making headlines over the past few weeks. One patient is a young woman who is about three months pregnant; the other is a 13-year-old girl.

The headline says it all. Earlier this week, Health Commissioner Niray R. Shah, M.D., M.P.H., declared that influenza is prevalent in the state. To date, 45 counties and all boroughs of New York City have confirmed cases of the flu. While the statement may not have meant much for the average citizen, for health care workers, the declaration had an immediate impact: If they have not received a flu shot this year, they must wear a surgical or procedure mask anywhere that patients may be present.
