Why do medication errors occur and how can you prevent them?

Medication errors can be made by drug manufacturers, doctors, nurses, pharmacists or anyone else who is responsible for producing, prescribing, distributing or administering drugs. A medication error can result in an adverse patient reaction. They're virtually always a preventable event.

Refinancing your mortgage can save you money

According to personal finance website MyFinance, as many as 2 million homeowners may have refinanced their homes last year here in the United States. The financial value of these deals came in just shy of $749 billion. An estimated 6.7 million homeowners are eligible, yet haven't taken the necessary steps to refinance their homes.

Most homeowners who have refinanced their homes in recent years have been motivated to do so because of the record low-interest rates that have been in place since not too long after the 2008 recession passed. While the federal government has threatened to raise rates, they've done little to put that plan into motion.

Real estate attorneys should negotiate sales and purchases

In this do-it-yourself era in which we all live in, many of us think that we can just look something up online or just "wing it" and it will all work out fine. When it comes to either selling or buying real estate, trying to handle a transaction as large as this on your own may not be in your best interest, especially since big dollars are at stake.

Whether you're buying or selling a home, having an attorney represent you during the price negotiation process can be helpful. You have to keep in mind that the buyer is always going to be focused on getting the price down whereas the seller is going to be consumed by making sure the home goes for much higher.

Commercial lessees have to look out for their own interests
