The COVID-19 pandemic utterly changed the landscape of the food delivery industry in the United States. As restaurants across the country closed their doors to in-house dining, the proliferation of food delivery drivers on the road illustrated the unanticipated spike in the food delivery business. Uber reported in 2020 that they had seen a tenfold increase in restaurants signing up to utilize the delivery services of Uber Eats. Other companies such as Grubhub, Postmates, and DoorDash, grocery delivery services like Instacart, and private restaurant delivery drivers became ubiquitous, and continue to operate in record numbers. The combined revenue of Grubhub, Uber Eats, DoorDash, and Postmates between April and September of 2020 was more than twice what it was for the same period in 2019.

Following an auto collision, determining fault can pose a great challenge. No two car accidents are the same, and the complexity and abundance of factors involved in a vehicular wreck can make it difficult to properly hold the responsible party accountable for their negligence. Investigations into medical and police reports can provide supportive evidence, but a reliable account from a credible eyewitness is one of the best ways to support a claim.

It is not enough to simply have an eyewitness account of the accident—the credibility of the witness must also be taken into consideration. Witness credibility is essential in all legal situations, but a witness’ statement can be especially central to a car accident case, in which the word of one driver is weighed against the other. If you have been involved in an auto collision, you need to know that you have the support and expertise of a law firm thoroughly familiar with car accident law. A proficient legal advocate will know how to use a qualified witness’ statement to effectively support your claim, and will further be able to ascertain which witnesses are satisfactorily credible in their account of the incident.

When Are Cars Responsible for Truck Accidents

Operating a large commercial truck can be a dangerous occupation for drivers who often spend up to 11 consecutive hours on the road. However, the risk for passenger vehicle drivers who share the road with tractor-trailers weighing 20-30 times more than a car can be even more substantial. Commercial truck accidents, although more infrequent per mile than passenger vehicle wrecks, can be the most catastrophic. Research from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) shows that most deaths in large truck crashes are passenger vehicle occupants. It is clear that large trucks do not operate in a bubble, and passenger cars can become entangled when things go wrong, whether or not they are at fault.

If you have been involved in a crash with a large commercial truck, you need to know that you are backed by a trusted law firm with experience in truck accident law. Our team at Golden Law Office works hard to make the road a safer place for everyone. We can use our valuable experience in truck accident law to determine the ways you have been affected by the accident, helping you receive the compensation you need to recover your losses. One of the first steps in the process is determining the liable party in a tractor-trailer accident.

How Can You Tell If Your Loved One Has Bedsores

The National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA) has published studies concluding that approximately one in 10 older adults living in a community environment is a victim of abuse. This shocking statistic shows that elder abuse is a serious threat to individuals who reside in nursing homes. Trusting that your loved one will be well cared for in a nursing home facility should never come with the fear of mistreatment or neglect. When abuse or neglect does occur, action should be taken to quickly put an end to a grievous situation of maltreatment.

Knowledge is one way you can equip yourself to be an advocate for vulnerable adults residing in nursing homes. By educating yourself on signs and symptoms of potential neglect or mistreatment, you can help prevent or stop a serious problem. One major sign of neglect in nursing homes is bedsores. Bedsores indicate that an individual has been left immobile for long periods of time, and suggests that they are not receiving proper care and attention. If you find that a nursing home resident you know has developed bedsores, get in touch immediately with a trusted nursing home abuse lawyer who can help protect the rights of your loved one.
