Massachusetts worker killed in construction accident

It is clear to workers in Massachusetts that there are some industries that are more dangerous than others. One of these dangerous industries is construction, and everyday construction workers across the nation put their lives at risk to carry out their daily work tasks. Whether it is building a home, working on a multi-story building or engaging in a road construction project, steps should be taken to ensure the safety and well-being of construction workers.

Workers' comp benefits and returning to work

Residents in Massachusetts typically go to work each week to pay the bills and save up money for other needs and wants in life. While going to work is routine and becomes part of an individual's life, when an employee is injured on the job, this can drastically change his or her life. This not only disrupts their routine but also makes it difficult to make a living and pay their monthly bills. In such situations, workers' compensation or workers' comp can be extremely beneficial.

Who is likely to cause nursing home abuse?

Placing a loved one in a nursing home is likely a major decision that didn't come easy. And whether it is a short-term or long-term stay, it is likely that many concerns are going through the minds of loved ones. Will they get enough attention? What if they miss a medication? Is the facility adequate enough? What if they are hurt or become ill?

Pedestrian tips for safer walking experiences

On any given day, approximately 430 pedestrians in the United States require Emergency Room treatment for injuries suffered in vehicular accidents.

Helping you take action if you suspect nursing home neglect

Whether it is due to old age or for rehabilitation, it is never an easy decision to place a loved one in a nursing home. Such transition can be a huge change for an aging family member. Moreover, it can be challenging for loved ones because they are placing much trust in the nursing home facility and its staff members to care for and meet the needs of their family member. While nursing homes are often adequate facilities that meet all the needs of their residents, some fail to do so - often because of negligence.
