Will stem cell treatments lead to medical malpractice claims?

People nationwide, including North Carolina, who consider stem cell treatment for medical conditions might be wise to heed the warnings of federal regulators. It will not be surprising to see medical malpractice lawsuits filed against facilities where these treatments are performed. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration reported that hundreds of clinics across the country offer stem cell treatments.

Workers' compensation can ease the financial burden

Construction workers and their families in certain areas in North Carolina have reason to be concerned about the safety on work sites. Although the state-regulated workers' compensation is here to have the backs of injured workers, the possibility of losing a loved one in an on-the-job accident is real. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited four companies in Charlotte for safety violations that led to several fatalities since 2017.

Holiday celebrations lead to more motor vehicle accidents

It is perhaps only fitting that December is National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month. The holiday season is the time when almost all gatherings of people in North Carolina and elsewhere include the serving of alcohol, typically leading to increased numbers of motor vehicle accidents. Unfortunately, many of them leave victims with catastrophic injuries or worse.

Workers' compensation claims for falls are prevalent in winter

North Carolina winters can increase the risks outdoor workers face. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration reminds employers that the primary cause for industrial injuries nationwide is fall hazards. This danger is underscored by the number of workers' compensation claims that follow slips, trips and falls across the country every year. The chances of workers falling are significantly higher during the months when workers must negotiate icy and snow-covered walking surfaces.

Beware of winter workplace hazards

Workplace safety is always important, but the winter brings some unique concerns. No matter what your profession is, you likely face distinct hazards once the temperature drops. With preparation and staying alert, you can prevent injuries to the best of your ability.
