Medication errors are far too prevalent


Medical errors can take many forms. Doctors can fail to accurately diagnose a medical condition, surgical instruments may be left inside a patient during an operation, and medical personnel may fail to properly monitor a patient who is in a dire condition. Another all too common doctor mistake involves medication errors. Unfortunately, far too many patients, including those in Massachusetts, are subjected to medication mistakes, often leaving them seriously injured or even dead.

Massachusetts construction worker hurt in fall


Every day, Massachusetts' construction workers put themselves at risk for the sake of their job. They often climb to extreme heights, work near moving vehicles, and operate heavy and dangerous machinery. Fortunately, most of the time, these workers are kept safe thanks to workplace laws and regulations. In some instances, though, mishaps occur and workers are left injured. When this happens, a victim could have a long road to recovery.

Can I sue a bar if I am hit by a drunk driver?


Under what are known as dram shop laws, an individual who is injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver may be able to hold an alcohol vender liable. However, doing so can be quite difficult, as it is often hard to prove that the vendor had certain knowledge. For example, did the vendor know the individual was intoxicated before serving him or her? These types of questions can be complex, and acquiring the evidence to support an answer can be pivotal in a civil lawsuit.

Truck driver fatigue all too common in America


Semi-trucks are an integral part of our society. They move goods across the country, allowing us access to almost any product we could ever want. However, though these big rigs are a critical piece of the economic puzzle, they can also be extremely dangerous, particularly when operated by individuals who are distracted or otherwise negligent. In fact, Massachusetts' residents may be startled to know just how prevalent truck driver fatigue is and just how deadly it can be.
