We Will Get Through This Together

Americans are hurting. First it was Hurricane Harvey slamming into Texas and Louisiana. Then Hurricane Irma chased thousands from their homes in Florida. Puerto Rico is still reeling from Hurricane Maria. And then we woke up to news on Monday that a crazed gunman killed as many as 58 people and injured hundreds more at a concert in Las Vegas. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those who have suffered so terribly or lost loved ones in these disasters. It will be a long road ahead to recovery and healing, but the American spirit is strong. We know we will get through this together!

“Home Sweet Home” Starts With Our Fall Safety Check

Home is where we should feel most safe and secure. Home is where we celebrate with friends and family, raise our children and grow old with those we love. “Peace – that was the other name for home,” wrote poet Kathleen Norris. But too often that peace is shattered by unintentional injuries. You should know more about these top three household dangers and how to prevent them.

BY THE NUMBERS

About 2,600 people die and over 11,000 are injured every year in residential fires.

Authorities identify woman killed by train in Montecito

 

 

Authorities have released the name of the woman who was struck and killed by an Amtrak passenger train on Saturday afternoon in Montecito.

Elaine Enick, 62, of Montecito was fatally injured when she was hit by the northbound Pacific Surfliner at about 3:20 p.m. in the area of Butterfly Lane, said Kelly Hoover, a spokeswoman for the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department.

The conductor of the northbound Pacific Surfliner told investigators that Enick was walking along the side of the tracks, and the train’s horn was sounded to warn her.

Moments later, she stepped onto the tracks and was struck and fatally injured, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

“The sheriff’s Coroner’s Office is conducting an investigation to determine the circumstances surrounding the incident,” Hoover said.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to someone’s wrongful conduct or negligence in California, you may have a right to an injury or wrongful death claim against the negligent party. James McKiernan Lawyers encourages anyone who may find him or herself in such a difficult situation to contact an experienced Central Coast Personal Injury Attorney at 1-800-200-HURT (4878) for a free case evaluation.

At James McKiernan Lawyers, We work tirelessly to deliver accurate news about the California accidents that impact our readers and clients most. Although our goal is to keep people as informed as possible, we’d like to note the information we aggregate is obtained from a wide variety of non-affiliated secondary sources. These include but are not limited to: Law enforcement agencies, press release, News articles, and websites.

As we publish and share accident information, we make all possible efforts to ensure its correctness, but for the aforementioned reasons, we cannot guarantee that our content is completely accurate. Although we generally respond to inquiries and requests to change, update or amend the content and articles that we publish, we cannot promise that we’ll be able to do so within a given time frame.

The articles and blogs that we share or post here and on social media are designed to serve solely as general information. They should not be taken to constitute legal, medical or any other form of express or implied advice. Similarly, they may not be applicable to your personal circumstances, situation or case. Any information referring to specific laws, statutes or legal actions reflects legal principles, but the laws that apply to you may differ based on your situation, jurisdiction or other factors.

Aging Americans Are at Risk

Aging Americans Are at Risk
In 2010, the U.S. Census recorded 40 million Americans aged 65 or older. By 2050 that number will double! The long-term care industry has exploded, posting more than $300 billion in profits in 2015 alone. Unfortunately, some providers treat residents as a commodity rather than patients. Abuse, assault, fraud and forced arbitration contracts have become increasingly common in nursing homes across the country.

Before you choose a nursing home for your loved ones, make sure you know the facility has their best interests at heart. Our oldest citizens deserve respect and quality care.

Do You Know the Warning Signs of Nursing Home Abuse?

But it does happen all too often, which is why you should know the signs of elder abuse and how to find quality care for the older loved ones in your life.
