On nursing home neglect, and the search for justice

As we all get older, we will all eventually need some form of help or assistance from the medical industry to get by. It's just the way things are -- we get older, and our bodies deteriorate.

Products liability law overview

It seems that product liability lawsuits have become more and more ubiquitous these days. So what exactly does product liability mean?

Child sex abuse becomes focus of difficult public discussions

Anyone who follows the news on a regular basis has probably noticed that high-profile stories about child sexual abuse have become sadly common.
