Eastern Jackson County, MO Nursing Home Neglect
Have you left a loved one in Eastern Jackson County, MO in the care of a nursing home that you feel has mistreated your loved one and betrayed your trust? If so, then you should speak with an attorney familiar with nursing home neglect cases. Neglect can take many forms and can include both physical and mental abuse. Potentially, neglect can also be criminal. Your loved one may be afraid to disclose mistreatment even to you out of fear of reprisals. Consequently, you must evaluate the situation for yourself. Does your loved one have an unexplained injury such as a broken hip? Do not simply accept what nursing home personnel are telling you when you suspect something else. If you suspect your loved one has been dropped you should contact an attorney to help you get to the bottom of it.

Unsecure loads continue to be a problem this spring in Jackson County, Missouri. In one traffic situation, a ladder that was not properly secured dislodged off a pickup truck and was run over by an 18-wheeler behind it. Fortunately, no one was hurt, but had a smaller vehicle met the displaced ladder the result might have been different. The negligent driver of the pickup truck would have likely been held responsible for any accident caused by the falling ladder. Often people forget to consider wind resistance when loading vehicles or open air trailers. A load or item that appears secure when a vehicle is not moving may prove to be very unsecure once the vehicle begins moving. Further, the faster a vehicle travels the greater the wind resistance.
