Serious auto accidents usually come with visible damage to the vehicles and people involved. Because it can be easier to tell when someone is injured, this reliance on explicit symptoms can result in overlooking invisible injuries. This is why it is so important to seek a medical evaluation if you are an accident victim, even if you feel fine or the crash was minor.
Nursing homes typically promise family members of elderly loved ones that they will provide proper care for the resident. Unfortunately, not all facilities live up to that level of care, and some family members suffer for it.

You may already be aware of how dangerous trucks can be, especially when drugs and alcohol involved. The sheer size and weight of commercial vehicles are enough to make you leery when you drive near them on the roads. The thought of truckers driving while intoxicated is downright frightening.
When you entrust your mother, father or another loved one to the care of a nursing home, you trust what the representatives tell you: that your loved one will receive specialized care, he or she will be happy and your loved one’s well-being will be the top priority. It often comes as a shock when these claims are revealed to be untrue and abuse or neglect has occurred. Bruising, malnutrition and irritability are a few signs of such incidents.
