How frequent are school bus accidents?

When school is in session, it happens every week - children use the bus to get to and from school. While school buses are relatively safe vehicles for young students to travel in, parents in Massachusetts are often concerned about the possibility of a school bus related crash and what could be done to increase the safety of students using this form of transportation.

Carpal tunnel syndrome and workers' compensation benefits

While it is obvious that employees across the state of Massachusetts face various types of risks and dangers in the work environment, some on-the-job injuries are not so obvious. Even when a job is not inherently dangerous, such as construction or those involving heavy machinery, all work environments could present dangers. This is why all employees should be aware of the dangers their workplace could present.

1 killed and 1 hurt in a Massachusetts Turnpike truck crash

Every day, various types of vehicles share the roadways in Massachusetts and other states across the nation. Large trucks are frequently seen on major roadways due to their frequent use to transport and ship goods across the state and country. Although these are very beneficial vehicles, they are also prone to serious and even fatal crashes. These massive vehicles are not able to maneuver the same way other motor vehicles are able to, and if a truck driver is negligent or road conditions are dangerous, a serious truck accident could ensue.

What are the legal rights of nursing home residents?

It is not uncommon for Massachusetts residents to place loved ones in nursing home or to consider this option in the near future. While it might be difficult to put trust in others and a facility to care for a loved one, it could be a very positive and beneficial experience for everyone involved. Although these private institutions could provide for the medical care and needs of an elderly or aging loved one, there are still major concerns such as elderly abuse or nursing home neglect that should always be addressed. In addition to the rights afforded to those who place their loved ones in a nursing, residents at the facility also have rights.
