Pāʻia (pah-ee-ah) is a census-designated place (CDP) in Maui County, Hawaiʻi, on the northern coast of the island of Maui. The population was 2,499 at the 2000 census. Pāʻia is home to several restaurants, art galleries, surf shops and other tourist-oriented businesses. One business, Charley's, is frequented by Willie Nelson when he visits the island. The eponymous "Fish Market" at Pāʻia's main intersection is moderately well known throughout the island for its Mexican and Hawaiian food. Pāʻia is the last town on the Hāna highway when heading eastbound towards Hāna. Paia is located close to many internationally known windsurfing spots (i.E. Ho'okipa, Spreckelsville). Therefore it is sometimes called 'The World Capital of Windsurfing'.

What is nursing home abuse litigation?

Nursing Home Abuse is defined as repeated actions or the lack of appropriate action that causes harm or distress to an older person when in an institution or health care facility. It can take the form of physical, sexual, emotional and financial abuse, among others. Cases may involve residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities who have suffered physical and/or psychological harm due to negligent or intentional acts of their caregivers. A nursing home abuse attorney may seek to hold a care facility liable based on legal theories like negligent screening and supervision of employees, or improper facility maintenance.
