An attorney may be able to help you with your motorcycle injuries


As discussed last week, a motorcycle accident can leave you with significant injuries that cause severe pain. Many of these injuries have long-term effects, including disfigurement and disability. Broken bones may make it difficult for you to get to work or school, and a brain injury may leave you or a loved one reliant upon constant medical care. While recovering from these injuries, you have a lot to think about. How are you going to pay your medical expenses? If you are unable to work, how are you going to pay your other bills? How can you send the message that the negligent individual who hurt you will be held accountable?

What is road rash?


As the weather starts to warm and spring arrives, many Massachusetts residents may climb back on their motorcycles and take to the road. Though fun, relaxing, and cost-effective, this mode of transportation can be dangerous, even when motorcyclists take every precaution to keep themselves safe.

How can I get OSHA to investigate my place of work?


The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) investigates in two ways: off-site and on-site. You are free to file a claim at any time, however, if you want an on-site OSHA investigation of your place of employment, then one of a list of criteria must be met. Amongst these criteria are a signed complaint that satisfactorily illustrates that a violation or danger threatens the physical safety of employees, a claim that alleges that physical injury has been suffered and the hazard that caused it still exists, a report that imminent danger exists, the employer against which a claim has been filed has a history of OSHA violations within the previous three years, and a claim that is referred from a whistle blower investigation, amongst others.
