Mix-up at hospital leaves veteran with no medical attention

People rely on their health care providers in Kentucky to take adequate time to diagnose their condition, make recommendations that take into account their medical history and provide medical attention in a compassionate and reliable manner.

Falls kill about 1,800 U.S. nursing home residents annually

In a perfect world, every nursing home across Kentucky would maintain a nurturing, comfortable environment for residents, but regrettably, this is far from the case.

Now, changes may loom in terms of how long and how often today’s truck drivers must rest. Debra Broz, Attorneys at Law, PLC, understand that relaxing trucker drive-time regulations means more fatigued truck drivers would be traveling U.S. roadways, and we also have considerable experience helping clients hurt in crashes involving fatigued truckers seek recourse in the aftermath.
