Is your loved one being overmedicated?

People who have dementia and are in a nursing home may be at higher risk of being overmedicated. For example, in one Kansas facility in 2017, the director of the home said that it had been "like a death prison." Half of the residents were reportedly taking antipsychotics, but the staff cut these medications by half over six months. The director noted that only 10 percent of the patients actually had a mental illness.

Why does this happen? What are the signs that a loved one could be overmedicated?

Are the contributions of stay-at-home spouses fairly recognized?

One issue that pops up in many divorces is a difference in perception as to the value of a stay-at-home spouse or parent. Value is easier to quantify for someone who goes to a job outside the home. In such cases, courts can use information such as salary, bonuses, insurance plans, retirement plans and more to calculate what that person brought financially to the marriage.

It gets trickier when one person focuses on keeping the house and perhaps the kids in order.

How dangerous is whiplash?

One of the most common physical ailments people discover following a car crash is whiplash. Some reports estimate that over one million people in the United States suffer from whiplash every year. It is vital to receive treatment immediately after whiplash because the symptoms can be severe. 

Car accidents can lead to numerous health problems, from traumatic brain injuries to knee pain. Even if you feel all right following a crash, it is still a good idea to visit a doctor afterward to make sure you are actually fine. If a doctor discovers something developed as a result of whiplash, it will be easier to treat sooner rather than later. 

A rear-end crash can cause injuries you may not expect

Did you know that a rear-ender is the most common type of vehicle accident? It makes up about 40 percent of all traffic accidents reported in the U.S.

Do you think that a rear-end crash is no big deal in terms of injuries? Think again. If you are the victim of this kind of collision, you should seek immediate medical treatment, even if you are able to get out of your car and walk away.

Should you refuse a breathalyzer test in Georgia?

Unfortunately, drunk driving is a problem that does not seem to be going away anytime soon. In fact, the state of Georgia saw an increase in drunk-driving-related fatalities in 2015 compared to 2014. 

When pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving, most police officers will ask the driver to submit to some kind of field test. In many cases, this ends up being a breathalyzer. An issue with many departments' breathalyzers is they are inaccurate. Most people consent to this test, not realizing they can actually refuse. However, if a driver is going to refuse, then he or she should be ready for what comes next.

3 examples of child visitation violations

Courts base child custody and visitation on the best interests of the children involved. Whether you come to an agreement with the other parent or let the court decide, the court will provide an order that you must follow. This order includes details about when a kid should be with each parent. 

Both parents must follow this order. Unfortunately, there are deadbeat parents who do not comply with child custody orders. But what exactly counts as a violation? Here are a few examples that might warrant legal enforcement
