Good news for Vietnam War veterans' benefits

A successful federal lawsuit by a Vietnam War veteran who was denied benefits for 45 years may have opened the doorway for other veterans in Pennsylvania and other regions of the country to get the benefits they deserve. The case involved a man who was dishonorably discharged from military service as a result of post traumatic stress disorder. The fact his discharge was labeled dishonorable has prevented him from obtaining veterans' benefits -- until now.

Pennsylvania nursing home neglect

Victims of nursing home abuse come from the most vulnerable adult segments of the population in Pennsylvania. Considering the level of helplessness under which many of these victims live, cases of nursing home neglect are particularly saddening when revealed. In some cases, victims suffer serious, lifelong and debilitating injuries. In other cases, the abuse is so severe that it results in death.

Medical malpractice case focused on diagnosis

When a Pennsylvania resident seeks medical care, he or she places a great deal of trust in the medical professionals who will provide that care. While the vast majority of medical procedures will go smoothly, there are a number of cases each and every year in which problems will occur. Among those, some medical complications are unavoidable, but some are the result of medical malpractice.

A 21-year-old man was arrested for allegedly throwing water and shoes at an 86-year-old nursing home patient. The man was also accused of threatening to use a stuffed animal to sexually violate the woman. This nursing home abuse case did not happen in Pennsylvania, but it is a severe example of just how bad such incidents can get.
