Exploring the silent epidemic of elder abuse

While many people in Oregon do acknowledge that elder abuse does happen, what most do not realize are just how extreme of a problem it is. Contrary to what some may think, elder abuse is not a problem exclusive to public care facilities. It can also happen at home by a person's own family member or trusted caretaker. Because the elderly are already vulnerable and often not able to effectively communicate their needs, elder abuse often goes unnoticed until it is too late. 

Understanding negligent entrustment

Every time you take to Salem's roads and highways in your personal vehicle, there is a chance that you could be involved in an accident. Knowing this, you may tend to be somewhat understanding towards those that cause an accident that you are involved in. Yet if and when it is discovered that the driver that hit you was in another's vehicle, the issue of who should be liable comes into play. When legal action is required, that scenario can become even murkier. Many have come to us here at Swanson Lathen Prestwich PC in this situation wondering what sort of legal recourse might be available to them. If you share the same concern, you will be happy to know that assigning vicarious liability for your accident is indeed possible.
