It is safe to say that most people experience food poisoning at least once in their lives. If you have ever had food poisoning, you know the misery it brings. How long and how ill you become is dependent on the type of ‘poison’ that entered your system, whether it be a norovirus, E. coli, listeria, etc. You may be wondering if you are able to file a lawsuit against the restaurant or grocery store that distributed or manufactured the food that made you ill.

Semi-truck accident

It is obvious that semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers and other extra-large commercial vehicles are much larger and weigh much more than standard automobiles. It then comes as no surprise that the injuries and damage from an accident involving a truck of this size can be far more catastrophic than the injuries from a smaller vehicle. There are a variety of situations that can lead to a serious truck accident:

Construction accident

There are several ways for construction site injuries to occur, but certain types of accidents happen on a more frequent basis. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the government agency that supervises workplace safety, has named four general types of accidents that were responsible for over 60% of all construction worker deaths in 2014.

Medical malpractice

After a complex labor and delivery, most mothers do not want to question their doctor because we want to believe that our medical team did everything possible to ensure a safe delivery. But if your baby is injured, expensive treatments, therapies and equipment will cost untold amounts of money to help him or she reaches their full potential. Any birth injury could have been caused by medical mistakes.

Workers compensation

In most states, small business owners are required to carry Workers’ Compensation insurance for their employees to cover medical care, rehabilitation and wage replacement costs in case an employee becomes injured or sick on the job. Specific rules can vary from state to state, but the following are the general questions most commonly asked by business owners:

Pothole on the road

A pothole is a roadway defect that is caused by environmental factors such as heat, rain, ice and snow. These conditions erode a road and create cracks. When the cracks get deeper or wider, pavement material can separate and become dislodged by the tires of passing vehicles. If the hole spreads beyond the road and begins to erode the dirt below, a sinkhole will develop.

Workers’ compensation form

Workers’ Compensation is a type of insurance that is purchased by employers to cover employment-related illnesses and injuries. It is state-mandated and consists of payments required by law to employees who are injured or disabled resulting from their job. Every state has their own Workers’ Compensation insurance program.
