When you can’t watch your child because you have work or other commitments, it’s likely you’ll choose to send your child to daycare. It can be hard to find the right facility to trust with the care of your child even though there are regulations to ensure proper care. Daycare centers in Kentucky fall under legislation that requires them to be safe for children and treated properly.

Unfortunately, not all facilities follow those rules and regulations. In 2018, 50 children were found to be abused or neglected in Kentucky daycare facilities. While that might sound like a small number compared to the over 30,000 children in daycare in our state, even one instance of abuse or neglect is too many.

A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere at any time. These accidents can cause serious injuries that affect the rest of your life. In that case, you probably want to be compensated for your injuries and the costs from this unexpected situation that wasn’t your fault. If you were on private property when you fell, you might be wondering if you can still sue.

The short answer is yes, you can sue if you fall on private property. After a fall on private property, the blame usually falls on a sole person, like a property manager. This is different from a fall on public property, where you would likely have to sue a large entity, like the government.

Even though the case might be more straightforward than a fall on public property, there are still elements that you have to prove in order to have a successful claim. A Lexington slip and fall lawyer can help you through the claims process and determine your best course of legal action. Let’s look at when you can sue after a fall on private property and the problems you might face in your case.

A broken bone is an injury that causes pain and requires plenty of attention on its own. When there is a more serious injury that either caused or was caused by the bone fracture, though, there can be even more pain and recovery time to handle. Since there are over one million bone fractures every year in our country, it’s important for you to know what else the break could mean.

At Golden Law Office, we understand that a broken bone can cause more problems than just pain. Unexpected medical bills, lost wages, and the emotional toll can put a strain on your life and relationships just as much as the physical pain. Our experienced lawyers in Lexington are prepared to fight for you and help you get back to your normal life.

In Lexington, our population is full of people from different races, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds who all deserve to receive the same level of medical care. At Golden Law Office, we believe that every patient deserves the best care.

How Long Should Children Be in Rear-Facing Car Seats?

Baby in car seat

As a parent, you always want to do what is best for your child. You might think that as long as your child is in a car seat, they’re safe, but that’s not necessarily the truth. While 325 children under 5 were saved by car seats in 2017, depending on your child’s age and size, different types of car seats could be safer than others, like rear-facing car seats.

Though it might sound more dangerous for your baby’s car seat to face backwards in the car, it actually is safer for them in the event of a collision. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) states that rear-facing car seats are safer for very young and small children because it keeps them in a more stationary position and keeps their head from falling forward since their neck muscles aren’t strong enough to hold up their heads that are larger than their bodies, which can cause injury or even death if they obstruct their breathing.

As recommended by the AAP, children should be in rear-facing car seats until they reach the highest weight or height allowed by the car seat. The toddler may reach 2 years old and be big enough to transition into a front-facing car seat, but if they have not reached the height and weight requirements, they should remain in a rear-facing seat. These recommendations are great guidelines, but you should also go by state laws for car seats.
