If you are like many people across Springfield, you already have your holiday weekend planned. The Fourth of July is a very popular time to get outside, enjoy barbecues, fireworks and time with family and friends. Often, these gatherings involve drinking alcohol, which could put people in serious danger.
In our last post, we discussed the dangers that people can face when they are at swimming pools or lakes in the summertime. However, the heat of summer can also present a number of hazards to people who are not lucky enough to cool off in the water. Specifically, this includes people who work outside.
Now that summer is in full swing, people all across Springfield will be looking for ways to stay cool and have fun as the weather continues to heat up. For many folks, a quick dip in the pool or a day out on a lake is the perfect way to accomplish this.
When our loved ones are in the care of a nursing home facility, we have the expectation that they will be treated with compassion and respect. Learning that someone has been the victim of anything less can be devastating. Unfortunately, many cases of neglect or abuse in nursing homes are not brought to light until a patient gets very sick, injured or dies as a result of inadequate care.
Many of us enjoyed a relaxing and fun Memorial Day holiday. Whether people were heading out to cabins or just relaxing in town, the holiday weekend is often considered to be the beginning of summer. However, while many people are looking forward to the warm weather, vacations and summer events, it might be important to keep in mind that the summer can also be a time of serious car accidents in Illinois.
