Elderly woman killed in hit-and-run crash in Massachusetts

During the winter months, residents in Massachusetts are likely to encounter hazards and dangerous road conditions; however, risks on the road are not only associated with snow and ice on the roads. When a driver is careless, he or she could cause a crash. Whether a driver was being negligent, was distracted, speeding or being reckless, any of these actions could lead to a serious and even fatal accident.

What are the opposing claims for seatbelt use on school busses?

When it comes to school bus safety, Massachusetts's parents of school-aged children are concerned whether proper safety protocols are being followed. And while much debate has surrounded the issue regarding seatbelts on school busses, it is important that parents, students and administrators understand the pros and cons of these safety features on school busses.

Recent trends in fatal workplace accidents

While some occupations pose serious risks to employees, others do not have many apparent risks. Nonetheless, workers in Massachusetts and elsewhere should be aware of any potential and possible dangers and risks a job could pose, because it is not always a fall or other serious incident that could result in fatal occupational injuries.

Helping injured workers receive the compensation they deserve

Going to work can mean various things to employees in Massachusetts. For some, employment aligns with their educational endeavors. For others, it coincides with their interests, hobbies or skills. No matter the reason behind the obtainment of a particular job, one thing remains true - it is an individual's livelihood. And, because of that, when employees suffer an injury or an illness in a workplace accident, they could suffer more than just an injury.

How can you detect elder abuse?

While some Massachusetts residents are able to care for elderly relatives in their own home, many must rely on facilities such as nursing homes to care for their loved one around the clock. Although it might be difficult to entrust a facility to properly care for their family member, most nursing homes have adequately trained staff who will ensure all tenants are cared for properly. Despite that, many will always have concerns of neglect or abuse in the back of their minds.
