Nursing home abuse and neglect a serious issue nationwide

Kentucky residents with a loved one in a nursing home may be concerned to hear that a recent report from Congress revealed that nursing home abuse was reported in as many as 30 percent of nursing homes in the country. According to the report, of the over 5,200 nursing homes reported on, nearly 9,000 incidents of elder abuse took place over the course of 24 months. This included accidents that could have been prevented had the right measures been taken, residents suffering from malnutrition, bedsores that were not properly treated and residents suffering from a lack of medical care. According to the report, 1,601 of the incidents of abuse were so harmful that the victim was placed in immediate risk of becoming seriously injured, or even dying. Some of these incidents include nursing home workers kicking, choking and hitting residents. One report even revealed that in one incident, one resident of the facility was bribed to harm a second resident.

Automobile collides with Fayette County school bus

Riding a school bus is an iconic part of the lives of most children in Kentucky. We can trust that the bus drivers will act responsibly and transport children to school and home again safely.

Time can be of the essence in truck accident cases in Kentucky

Companies in Kentucky and across the nation rely on semi-trucks to transport their goods from one place to another.

Semi-trucks are an integral part of commerce in the United States.
