Focus on elder abuse meant to shine light on the problem

With the passage of time, Missourians will inevitably experience the increasing need to care for elderly loved ones. Some will care for their elderly relatives themselves; some will hire a person to come to the home; while others will need to place the elderly person in a facility so professional care can be given. It is an unfortunate reality, however, that elder abuse is growing more and more common. Knowing what steps to take when there is a belief that this is happening is critical.

Understanding Missouri’s new expungement laws

As of Jan. 1, 2018, Missouri’s new expungement laws went into effect. If you have a criminal conviction on your record, this new law may be just what you need to get that conviction expunged. If you are successful in your expungement attempt, not only does your conviction disappear from your record, you also have the legal right to say that you never received a conviction for the expunged crime(s).

Missouri ranked as risky for teens and potential for a car crash

Teens from across the nation are excited to receive their driver's licenses and get out on the road. This is universal and not just in Missouri. However, the basic dangers of driving and sharing the road with others are exacerbated by different factors, including the age and experience of the driver. Since teens who are new to driving will generally not have the experience necessary to understand how to be as safe as possible, it is inevitable that the inexperience combined with other risky behaviors will lead to crashes.

Fatal accident kills two construction workers when cable breaks

Risk is an inherent part of doing construction work or any physical job in Missouri and other states across the nation. These jobs generally require that the workers do certain things that place them in jeopardy as part of completing a project. It is also dangerous when repairs are being done, as they are frequently necessary at great heights. It is an unfortunate reality that accidents happen. In some instances, they lead to injuries. In others, they result in the loss of a loved one in a fatal accident. When this happens, the family must be cognizant of their needs in the present and future, as a wrongful death legal filing might be needed to receive compensation.

Fatal accident statistics look at Memorial Day in Missouri

Holiday weekends in Missouri mean there will be more people on the road, more people taking part in various recreational activities and more traffic overall. This increase can result in more accidents. Some of these can be so severe that they result in a fatal accident. Statistics are maintained to assess the accidents, determine their cause and to try and find ways to improve safety. Comparing one year to the previous one is also useful. For those who have been injured or lost a loved one, this information can also be important when considering a wrongful death legal filing to be compensated.

Auto accident with motorcycle injures riders; driver arrested

Motorcyclists are at risk of being injured or killed in an accident in Missouri and across the nation. Every time they go out on the road on their bikes, they are placing their trust in other motorists that they will obey the rules of the road, keep a close eye on them and give them sufficient room to maneuver and remain safe. Unfortunately, there are many drivers who do not follow the basic rules and even violate the law when encountering motorcyclists. This can lead to accidents with serious injuries and fatalities. After a biker has been injured or a family has lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash, it is crucial to understand the steps necessary to file a lawsuit for compensation.
