Treat road rash properly to prevent infection and scarring

A common injury if you are thrown off your motorcycle is road rash. There are many different ways to protect against this. One is to dress like a biker with the leather jacket, heavy duty pants and boots. Even if you have these on, there is still a chance that you will end up with road rash if you are thrown off your motorcycle.

Is your motorcycle ready for safe spring riding?

While winter may not be quite finished with Massachusetts yet, there have already been a few days that make it clear spring is on the way! For those who love to ride motorcycles, that means the main driving season is only a few weeks away. You're probably already planning to get out and hit the road when there's a sunny, warm weekend. Before you do that, however, you should spend a little time preparing yourself and your bike for the open road.

You have the right to appeal a denied workers' compensation claim

Workers' compensation insurance came about as a means to protect those who work for a living. A century ago, employers could subject workers to incredibly dangerous and unsafe working conditions. When a worker suffered a serious injury, such as a head injury, lost limb or spinal cord injury, the employer could just fire the employee, leaving him or her unable to pay for basic life necessities and medical care.

What benefits can I expect after a serious construction accident?

Imagine the scaffold you were working on collapsed and you got hurt in a construction accident. You might be down-and-out and unable to perform your job duties while recovering from your injuries. This means that your predicament is a lot more complicated than being hurt and needing to pay your doctors' bills because you won't be earning an income while you're healing.

What can you do after a denial of your workers' comp claim?

You've worked hard, possibly for many years at the same job. You put in your hours, and you contribute to the ongoing success of your employer. Then, there's an accident at work. Maybe it was a machinery issue, or perhaps you experienced a slip-and-fall. There are countless ways to end up injured at work, which is why workers' compensation exists. This specialized insurance helps ensure that those who work don't end up in poverty due to a work-related injury.

Stay safe on your motorcycle in bad weather

With fall just around the corner, the weather is becoming more erratic. It could start off as a nice, sunny day when you hop on your motorcycle in the morning, but by noon, a storm could roll in and you might be trying to maneuver through not-so-optimal conditions. Part of riding a motorcycle means having the ability to adapt to changing weather conditions.

Everyone has to keep motorcycle safety in mind

When you consider the severity of the injuries that are the result of a motorcycle crash, it is easy to see why there must be a focus on preventing the accidents. The prevention methods can't focus only on the actions of the motorcyclist. Instead, they need to focus on everyone on the road working together to keep motorcyclists safe.

What happens if your employer doesn't offer workers' comp?

When you get hurt at work, you probably know that it should get covered by workers' compensation. After all, that's the point of workers' compensation insurance. It's meant to ensure that those who work hard won't live in poverty, unable to afford medical care, if they get injured or sickened while on the job. Massachusetts law requires your employer to obtain a workers' compensation insurance policy. Some companies, however, avoid doing so to reduce operating expenses. After all, workers' compensation requires payment of a monthly premium, and the riskier the job, the more it costs.
