Trading retirement for child rearing: the opioid crisis

Ohio, among many other states in the region, is currently grappling with an incredibly complex opioid crisis. As a result, a new problem has surfaced: parents' inability to raise their own children. Grandparents have since come to the rescue, trading retirement plans for child rearing. Many might assume that this part of the problem ends here, but in reality, it often makes the issue all the more complicated. 

How should you deal with a wrong-way driver?

On the roads of Ohio, one of the most dangerous situations you can find yourself in occurs when drivers come at you from the wrong direction. Wrong-way drivers can not only cause massive panic in those around them, but frequently contribute to deadly car crashes. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to avoid being involved in these.

Are there ways to locate hit and run drivers?

In Ohio, whether you're in a car, on a bike, or walking, you have the chance of getting involved in a car accident. Unfortunately, some of those accidents might be hit-and-run, meaning the driver who is responsible for the crash leaves the scene before they can be held accountable. If this has happened to you, you might be wondering if there's anything you can do in order to gain financial compensation or track down the responsible driver.

Protect your business from your divorce

One of the biggest concerns for business owners in Ohio is keeping their business assets protected. While fraud, changes in the market, and other similar issues are always monitored with care, most business owners forget about one possible hurdle: their spouse. Unfortunately, it's wise to consider what to do in the event that a divorce becomes inevitable, as it may put the business at risk.

Identifying and treating a shoulder sprain

When motorcyclists are involved in accidents with other vehicles, their smaller size can result in more intense injuries. Some could take a short time to heal, while others may require a substantial period of recovery before the person can regain their former functionality. Sprains can fall into either category, depending on their severity.
