Be sure to investigate alternative veterans' benefits programs

On Memorial Day each year, we are reminded of the brave men and women who gave their lives in service of their country. Memorial Day is especially important for Pennsylvania veterans who made the same sacrifice but were fortunate enough to survive their years in the armed services. Still, many of the veterans who survived are wounded, living with amputations, disabilities and post traumatic stress, and they are not receiving the veterans' benefits they are qualified to receive.

Medical malpractice and negligence in Pittsburgh

Medical malpractice happens every day in Pittsburgh, but it does not always result in an injury or death; therefore, it usually goes unnoticed. However, even medical negligence that does result in serious injuries and/or death can remain undetected, and the victims can be left to deal with their injuries or losses without any kind of justice or restitution. By knowing how medical malpractice usually occurs, Pennsylvania residents will be better equipped to detect the signs of negligence to ensure it does not go unnoticed.

Mother awarded $34.4 million in medical malpractice suit

When a woman is pregnant, she and her loved ones place a great deal of trust in the medical workers who provide care during the pregnancy and at the time of delivery. This can be a stressful time, and many families in Pennsylvania and elsewhere are comforted in the belief that their childbirth experience will be handled with the highest level of professionalism. In a recent medical malpractice case, the matter at hand was not the treatment that a pregnant woman received during the labor and delivery process, but a failure on the part of her previous physician to document a medical condition.

Signs of nursing home neglect to watch out for

If you have a loved one who is living in a nursing home, it is vital that you keep a sharp eye out for any signs of neglect. Signs of nursing home neglect may be subtle at first and difficult to detect, so Pennsylvania families will want to be as diligent as they can at regularly visiting their relatives in nursing homes to ensure that they are well taken care of and are in good health. During those visits, there are several important things to watch out for that may constitute neglect.
