Why older people are more likely to fall

As an older person living in Ohio, you may notice that you have become more susceptible to falling down, and you may, too, become more likely to suffer a serious injury after a fall as you grow older. Why? Many older people have certain risk factors that make them more likely to fall, and in many cases, environmental factors also play a role. At Klein & Carney Co., L.P.A., we understand that seniors often suffer extremely debilitating injuries following falls, and we have helped many clients who suffered injuries because of others’ negligence seek recourse.

Per AgingCare.com, one in every four Americans over the age of 65 suffers a fall at least once a year. The problem is so prevalent, in fact, that falls are the most common reason older people hurt themselves, die or go to the hospital. Just what is it about aging that makes you more likely to take a tumble?

What to do after a truck accident

It's March and the lion is on the prowl. Based on the current forecast, it appears likely that any March lamb is going to be sharing time with April showers. All of northeast Ohio, including Cleveland, is under a winter weather advisory with anywhere up to eight inches of snow predicted. Conditions on many roads are already hazardous and accident reports are rolling in.

One of note happened early Thursday. Officials say a tractor-trailer headed west on Interstate 90 jackknifed around 2 a.m. No other vehicles were involved, but the truck's driver had to be hospitalized. The crash also forced the closure of all westbound lanes in the area for several hours.
