Can you sue if you were partly responsible for a crash?

Most people understand that if they are injured by a negligent driver, they can sue the driver to recover compensation for their damages. For example, if you are sitting in your car at a red light and a drunk driver smashes into your car, breaking your broken arm, you may file a personal injury lawsuit against that driver to recover the costs of your medical expenses and other damages.

Cause unknown of recent school bus accident that injured five

We see them on the roads all the time and we often smile, remembering our own childhood -- yellow school buses transporting children in Massachusetts to and from school bring back memories of our youth and the fun that we had. While we explicitly trust these school buses to transport our children, the reality is that they are big, unwieldy vehicles that require skill and agility to maneuver. And, when that skill is lacking, a bus accident can result.

Medication errors can be fatal in nursing homes

Though we don't like to think about it, when we hear the terms nursing home neglect or abuse, we think of inadequate staffing or failure to supervise patients. As uneasy as it makes us feel that nursing homes in Massachusetts are negligently taking care of our loved ones, the reality is that it is very common and can take many forms, including medication errors.

Car runs into bicyclist, causing serious injuries

It is an unfortunate fact that some automobile drivers in Massachusetts often forget that they are not the only objects on the road -- they share the road space with bigger objects such as trucks and smaller, unprotected objects such as motorcycles and bicycles. When a negligent or distracted driver is not paying attention to the road and failing to adhere to basic traffic laws, there is a high likelihood that he or she will end up endangering the lives of others.

What is the link between ergonomics and carpal tunnel syndrome?

Most Massachusetts' residents encounter some form of hazards while working, regardless of what type of job they are performing. The risks are obvious when working at a construction site or industrial site, but even office buildings can become dangerous if an employer does not maintain a safe working environment. Workplace accidents such as slips and falls can take place at any workspace.
