Medical experts and researchers have acknowledged that the violent activity involved in playing #football can lead to significant #braindamage or mild to severe concussions after being hit in the head thousands of times in a single season.

Inability to Judge Speed Causing Motorcycle Accidents (https://goo.gl/7cxTwR)

Motorcycles have little protection and can be hard for other drivers to see. Drivers should exercise caution when driving near a motorcyclist. This included providing space and time in case something were to happen.

Depth perception plays a role in #accidents, as drivers often think they have more space than they do. Left turners are notorious for causing accidents because their depth perception may be off and this impacts their timing when attempting to navigate the intersection safely.

Other common causes of accidents are moving back into a lane too early and misjudging how quickly the motorcyclist is braking.

Drivers are expected to treat #motorcyclists as any other driver on the road and give them plenty of space.

Even though many drivers collide with motorcyclists inadvertently, their failure to err on the side of caution makes them liable as long as the cyclist was not operating his or her bike in an unsafe or illegal manner.

If you've been injured in a #motorcycleaccident, contact (888-424-5757) our accident attorneys to discuss your case.

Sexual Abuse in Nursing Homes: A Growing Societal Problem (https://goo.gl/ajojrQ)

One of the most disturbing forms of abuse that affects thousands of #nursinghome patients every year is #sexualabuse.

One in three nursing homes is cited for abuse violations every year.

A study from the Medicaid Fraud Reports indicates that about nine percent of abuse violations in nursing homes involve some form of sexual abuse every year. The sexual abuse of nursing home patient is particularly disturbing because it typically impacts those who are most vulnerable and unable to do anything about it.

Damages Covered by Homeowner’s Insurance Policies (https://goo.gl/spJRrH)

Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the small print that insurance companies include in their policies but some still allow themselves to be duped or bullied by their insurers when it comes time to file a claim.

The damages covered by many typical homeowner’s insurance policies include the following:

1. Damage to the property resulting from a break in or robbery, including the cost of any items stolen during the theft.
2. Damage to the property due to vandalism or negligent actions of a third party.
3. The cost of repairs following storms, floods or other natural disasters such as hail, water, fire, wind and electrical damage.
4. Damage caused due to an accident such as a fire which started on accident, regardless of whether the fire was the result of individual negligence.
5. Damage caused by environmental disasters such as toxic material spills or devaluation of property due to excessive pollution.

Everything that you say or do when attempting to file a #claim will be monitored and scrutinized later on in court so it is always advisable to limit your communication with any insurance company until you’ve obtained legal representation.

The Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have experience working with insurance companies and are aware of the tactics and trickery that they will use to weasel their way out of paying claims.
