When pediatricians may be liable for malpractice

Finding a pediatrician that parents in Kentucky like and trust may seem challenging, particularly since they are trusting this medical professional with their children's lives. There are numerous mistakes a physician can make that compromise someone's health and well-being, and when the patient is a child, his or her whole future may be in jeopardy.

Is it the nursing home's fault your loved one fell?

Before your grandmother moved to the Kentucky nursing home where she now lives, she fell in her home and broke her hip. With nursing home staff to assist her in her daily living activities and medical help nearby, you may feel that falling should be a thing of the past. If she does fall, should you investigate further or accept that with age comes increased risk?

How widespread is driver fatigue?

There are a number of potential problems that can cause a driver to become dangerous on the road. For example, intoxication and disregard for speed limits can lead to a fatal collision. However, other risks which may not be as obvious, such as distraction and fatigue, are also very problematic. Drivers may become fatigued for different reasons, whether they take prescription medication which makes them tired, they work excessively long hours, they do not get enough sleep at night, or they suffer from a sleep disorder. Unfortunately, driver fatigue is far too prevalent.

Truck accidents and slick roads

Whether a truck is traveling at high speeds or a trucker gets behind the wheel even though they are too fatigued or intoxicated to drive safely, large truck wrecks have many causes. That said, things can go wrong even when truck drivers and all other drivers around them are driving responsibly. For example, slick roads due to freezing rain or ice can lead to a collision when drivers lose control.
