Mesothelioma LawsuitWritten by Margaret Wommack
Mesothelioma is a cancer of linings of heart, chest and abdominal cavity and is caused by exposure to asbestos, either first hand from working in (usually industrial) sites which used asbestos or second hand from coming into contact with clothes of a family member who worked on one of these sites. It is a dangerous cancer because of its long latency period, 20 to 50 years, and because its initial symptoms are similar to normal colds or pneumonia. It is an expensive and hard-to-cure cancer, but a mesothelioma lawyer can help you win compensation owed to you by business that put you in contact with deadly asbestos.
A mesothelioma lawyer can help you to get compensation you deserve so that you and your loved ones don’t have to suffer burden of expense of treatment on top of burden of having cancer. On average, mesothelioma cases that go to trial result in awarding of $6 million. Isn’t it worth it to take a chance and see how much you can get? Also, most mesothelioma lawyers are on a contingency fee, so they only receive payment if they win your case, so even if you do lose, you won’t have obligation to pay for legal proceedings.
Nursing Abuse Lawyer Says: Widespread Abuse Can Be Stopped Find a Nursing Home Abuse/Neglect LawyerWritten by Margaret Wommack
It is always painful to part with a loved one, particularly a family member who is ill, but millions of Americans find that they cannot care for needs of their relations and are forced to find a nursing home in which they can live. The selection of a good nursing home that will attentively care for their needs can be difficult, and many are misled into choosing wrong home. It is estimated that around 35,000 elderly people die prematurely in nursing homes every year due to neglect or abuse. And while many will blame themselves for selecting wrong nursing home for their elderly loved one, fault lies entirely with nursing home operator, who should be held accountable.
Nursing homes are obligated to have enough staff members to provide all of care listed in plan. The Nursing Home Reform Act requires nursing homes to “provide services and activities to attain or maintain highest practicable physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being of each nursing home resident in accordance with a written plan of care.” However, nursing homes frequently ignore this responsibility of theirs and residents are not cared for. Neglect of this sort includes not being assisted to toilet, being left in bed to develop bedsores, malnutrition, dehydration, being over or under medicated, not being properly cleaned, and generally being ignored. This neglect, both intentional and unintentional, causes serious injury that could result in premature death of resident.
