Admitting your loved one into a nursing home is a tough decision that you make out of love for them, so you expect them to be completely taken care of. When your loved one is abused or neglected instead of nurtured in a nursing home, it can be hard to take in. You want what’s best for them, so you’ll need to know how to report the abuse so that your loved one can receive justice for the actions against them.

You might have thought that elder abuse wasn’t likely to happen in their long term care facility, but the World Health Organization (WHO) reports that 1 in 6 people aged 60 and older experience abuse in their community setting. And 2 in 3 nursing home staff members have admitted to committing elder abuse in the past year.

Since it’s a very real possibility for your loved one to experience elder abuse or neglect in a nursing home, knowing how to report the abuse is important for you. You’ll need an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer. In Columbia, SC, Solomon Law Group can help your loved one stand up to their abusers.

Can Whiplash Cause Injury to the Brain?

After a car accident, you might experience neck pain as a result of whiplash, which is when the head is whipped quickly from one side to the other after an impact. Since there’s damage to the soft tissue of the neck in this back and forth motion, is it possible that the brain is also injured in this motion since it is soft tissue as well?

To put it simply, the answer is yes. Some people who get whiplash from collisions report pain, whether immediate or delayed, in their heads as well as their necks, which could mean they have experienced a brain injury caused by the whipping motion. This makes sense, since the head rests atop the neck, which is the body part that gets moved violently when whiplash occurs.

Let’s take a look at some of the brain injuries that can happen from whiplash.
