Man injured on the job as he works on fallen tree

Outdoor maintenance is an important job for community safety - things like keeping trees pruned and clearing branches that might fall. Inevitably, this requires workers to go high into the air to perform their duties. As with any job where workers are deployed at significant heights, falls can happen and result in injuries and fatalities. These happen even when the workers are taking all the safety precautions they are supposed to. After a workplace accident in these circumstances, the injured party and his or her family must be cognizant of the need for legal help to get workers' compensation and other benefits.

Pedestrian-car accident injures man and his niece crossing street

In Worcester and throughout Massachusetts, the mornings can be a dangerous time for pedestrians. People are on their way to work, are frequently in a rush and might be paying attention to several things at once rather than what they are supposed to be paying attention to: the road. In addition, people who are taking children to school could find themselves in risky situations as they try to cross busy streets, sometimes in poor weather. When there is a pedestrian-car accident, those who were hit can suffer serious injury and death. A lawsuit can help to recover compensation for all that was lost.

Falling window frame leads to injured worker and hospitalization

For Massachusetts workers who are employed in the construction industry, they will undoubtedly understand the risks of being injured. There are many ways in which there can be a workplace accident and it can lead to long-term damage and even death. Fortunately, these workers should be covered by workers' compensation benefits. Often, workers need legal help to ensure that they get the workers' compensation to which they are entitled.

Multiple factors cited for rise in pedestrian-car accident stats

Statistics detailing how and why car accidents happen can be useful for Massachusetts residents and for people across the nation. Some of the most vulnerable people on the road are not in vehicles at all, but are functioning as pedestrians. When there is a crash between a vehicle and a pedestrian, serious injury is likely and fatality is possible. Research is constantly being conducted to try and understand the cause of these crashes and to reduce their incidence. One new study from the Governors Highway Safety Association estimates that the number of pedestrians who died in the U.S. has held steady at almost 6,000 for 2017. This is the most in 25 years.

New fatal auto accident statistics show worrisome stagnation

Massachusetts residents should keep track of car accident statistics so they know what to look for when they head out on the road as a driver, a passenger, a bicyclist or a pedestrian. For example, numbers that might initially appear to show an improvement are often indicative of a stagnation or worsening of various problems when they are dissected in depth. Such is the case for the approximately one percent reduction in motor vehicle fatalities in 2017. This information, from the National Safety Council, heightens concerns about road dangers.
