What evidence can be used to prove negligence in a car accident?

Being involved in a car accident is a shocking and often horrendous event. Victims can be left dealing with serious injuries and the difficult task of understanding what happened and who was at fault. Negligence is the cause of many automobile collisions in Massachusetts and elsewhere; therefore, victims are often seeking ways to prove that a driver was distracted, intoxicated or otherwise negligent behind the wheel.

Many residents in Massachusetts enjoy the wintertime. It is a time where individuals and families can play in the snow, ice skate, ski and snowmobile.

How can you spot the red flags of nursing home neglect?

Placing a loved one in a nursing home is never an easy step to take. However, many individuals in Massachusetts must take this step to help aging loved ones recover from an injury or a surgery or even obtain the necessary daily care and needs. No matter the reason for placing an elderly family member in a nursing home facility or the length of time he or she will spend there, it is important to gain a full and accurate picture of the care they will receive and the environment they will live in. While most places are more than adequate, some do not only fail to meet the health and safety needs of the residents but also result in serious incidents of abuse and neglect.
