Types of Nursing Home Abuse and Your Legal Options

Making the decision to place an elderly loved one in a nursing home is a difficult decision, one that is further compounded by the fact that unfortunately, not all of the people entrusted with the care of our loved ones may treat them with respect and dignity.

Nursing home abuse is something that many people struggle to come to terms with, whether you are experiencing it, or you believe your parent or other elderly loved one is experiencing the abuse. The following is a closer look at the types of nursing home abuse, how to spot nursing home abuse, and what your legal options are if you believe your loved one has been mistreated. 

4 Critical Steps to Take After a Wrongful Death

4 Critical Steps to Take After a Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is a painful life experience, and one most people dread going through. When it does happen it can be made even worse knowing that the reason for their death was entirely preventable. When your loved one dies due to someone else’s carelessness, your first thought usually isn't taking legal action. You're more focused on grieving and tying up that person's loose ends.

Roseanne is Back and so is the Reality of Working Class Hardships

The TV series Roseanne comes back to the airways after a ten year hiatus. 

Though the series focused on the humor that can be found in the everyday life of a lower to middle class family, there was a more serious message that was always present.  This family lived paycheck to paycheck and when one spouse was out of work, the whole family teetered on financial ruin.  There were constant financial problems that existed in the Connor household, which was made worse when Dan was injured at work. 

Despite their problems, the show would always end with some humorous line and all troubles would be forgotten.  However, this is not how real life works.  Today, we have many families who are living paycheck to paycheck and when one spouse is injured at work, there can be financial devastation for the family that a humorous line cannot fix. 

When you are injured at work, you need to make sure that you receive all benefits that you are entitled to receive under the law.  You need attorneys who will ensure that you are paid while you are off of work so that your family does not suffer financially. 

If you have been injured in a work related injury, please contact the attorneys at Dennis Seaman & Associates to discuss your workers’ compensation claim. Call (216) 696-1080.

Three Mile Island Disaster 39 Years ago, Impacts us Today

Thirty nine years ago on March 28, 1979, one of the nuclear reactors at Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, near Harrisburg overheated and came within 1,000 degrees of a full meltdown.  This could have been the greatest nuclear tragedy in US history. 

Even though there was no meltdown, there was a radiation leak which was discovered shortly after the reactor was shut down.  Though, thankfully, the exposure was limited and the workers did not sustain any long term damage, they were still exposed to toxic radiation. 

Many workers do not realize that if they are exposed to a chemical at work which causes some sort of reaction to their skin or eyes, they may be eligible to file a claim under Ohio workers’ compensation for medical benefits.  Some exposures may be so severe that you may be out of work for many months. 

Call the attorneys at Dennis Seaman & Associates to discuss your chemical exposure claim. (216) 696-1080.



Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Today and throughout this weekend the baseball season starts as the boys of summer are back!

This year the Cleveland Indians and many baseball teams have tried to make safety of the fans more of a priority.  One of the changes at Progressive Field will be an extension of the safety netting.  The net will extend from Section 164 down the third base line to Section 140 down the first base line.  This will minimize the potential injuries from foul balls and bats that end up in the seats. 

Of course no matter how many safety measures are in place, accidents still happen especially in the workplace.  If you are injured at work, call the worker’s compensation experts at Dennis Seaman & Associates to discuss your claim (216)696-1080.
