MA workers' compensation insurance companies want more money

Workers' compensation laws are designed to protect both employers and workers. Employers are protected from going through lawsuits while workers are supposed to promptly receive compensation to cover the costs of injuries from on-the-job accidents. In theory, this system works well. In reality, receiving the compensation you are entitled to can be a challenge.

Construction workers at increased risk of suffering TBIs

From working atop ladders and scaffolding to digging in trenches and ditches, in addition to being physically demanding, construction work is also incredibly dangerous. In fact, the construction industry is consistently ranked as being among the top 10 most dangerous professions and falls are by far the leading cause of death and injury among construction workers.

Drivers advised to steer clear of altercations with other motorists

Three things to watch out for after an accident

It is the unfortunate truth that your insurance company is not your friend. You've been paying money into your policy for years or even decades but it's important to remember that your insurance carrier is still a business. While they won't actively try to deceive or take advantage of you, their decisions are likely driven by their own bottom line.

When your life is turned upside down after a drunk driving accident

Everyone knows that it's not only dangerous to get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle after drinking alcohol, but it's also illegal. Despite these facts, every year an unknown yet significant number of drivers choose to drink and drive. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, during 2014 alone, 9,967 people in the U.S. were killed in drunk driving-related motor vehicle accidents; a number that equated to 31 percent of traffic fatalities for that year. In addition to these fatalities, thousands of other drivers, passengers, pedestrians and bicyclists also suffered debilitating injuries due to the negligent acts of drunk drivers.
