Even one drink could lead to car accidents

Some people in Kentucky do not think twice about having a drink or two at a restaurant, bar or party, and then driving home. They may think that they have not consumed enough alcohol to put their blood alcohol content level above the legal limit of 0.08, and therefore it is safe for them to drive. However, even drinking a small amount of alcohol could affect a person's ability to drive.

What are some types of nursing home abuse and neglect?

When a person in Lexington needs more care than their family can provide, sometimes a nursing home is the type of facility that is best equipped to meet their needs.

A person in Lexington who is operating a motor vehicle while distracted is a danger to everyone else on the road.

Can those in Kentucky nursing homes be forced into arbitration?

Lexington residents may be aware that earlier this year the federal government announced its goal of abolishing prohibitions on pre-dispute arbitration clauses in contracts. In such a contract, residents of care facilities or their families agree to undergo arbitration before they can file a lawsuit, even if there is no dispute yet. These contracts can be applicable even if the victim has been subjected to nursing home abuse and neglect.
