How Common Is Elder Abuse in Nursing Homes?

When you hear the terminology elder abuse, you may envision an older individual being physically abused. That isn’t the only way elderly individuals are mistreated or taken advantage of, though. Financial, emotional, and sexual abuse all also fit into the broad category of elder abuse.

Elder abuse is an epidemic, whether one lives in a big city like Atlanta, GA or Cincinnati, OH or a smaller one like Macon, GA or Florence, KY. This type of ill-treatment or taking advantage of others occurs at the hands of nursing home staff, home healthcare aids, and others.

If the number of elder abuse cases like this that our Bey & Associates personal injury lawyers handle is any indicator of how prevalent this phenomenon is, then this mistreatment happens often.

How is a truck accident claim different from a car wreck case
Many of us have had the misfortune of becoming involved in a car accident at some point in our lives. Maybe it was a minor fender-bender that occurred due to a motorist failing to brake in time or a more serious crash caused by an inexperienced driver not using sound judgment or texting and driving. Most of us, thus, have a general idea of how car accident cases unfold in terms of getting quotes for property damage from a body shop and filing an insurance claim to recover accident-related expenses if someone else was at fault for the crash.

How to move forward after a truck accident may be less familiar to you. After all, some motorists who drive local streets tend to share the road with far fewer tractor-trailers than those who frequently use main thoroughfares such as interstates. So, below, we’ll deep dive into how truck accident claims unfold and explain how that is different from car wreck ones in hopes that this insight helps you if you have unexpectedly become entangled in such a crash.

Potential Link Found Between Uterine Cancer and Hair Straightening Chemicals

The appearance of hair, whether straight or curly, is dependent upon the shape of the hair follicle, and that appearance is then held by disulfide bonds. Chemical hair straighteners (also known as relaxers) use a variety of chemicals to break down those disulfide bonds, resulting in a straight or “relaxed” look.

A potential link found between uterine cancer and hair straightening chemicals calls the safety of these products into question. If you believe that your cancer diagnosis may have been the result of using a dangerous product that you believed to be safe, we encourage you to contact Bey & Associates as soon as possible. Our compassionate attorneys are ready to discuss what happened to you, and we’ll make sure you understand all the legal options at your disposal.
