Personal injury: Recalled chicken products can cause harm

Consumers in Raleigh and other cities in North Carolina are exposed to many food-related threats. The number of personal injury lawsuits that are filed in civil courts is not surprising when one considers the fact that manufacturers of chicken products have issued eight recalls within the first six weeks of 2019. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service provided a list of some of the reasons for these recalls.

Personal injury lawsuits might arise from nursing home neglect

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 1.5 million people live in nursing homes across the country, including North Carolina. The agency also says many cases are reported of personal injury caused by negligent care and mistreatment, often in for-profit facilities. A recent study found that the owners and management of for-profit facilities earn significant amounts of money, leaving very little for the workers who are burdened with large workloads at low wages. It is alleged that the focus at these facilities are on profits rather than providing proper care.

Workers' compensation: Office environments pose many hazards

Hazards exist in all work environments, and although some are unique to the particular industry, others are more general, and they threaten the safety and health of all -- from construction sites to offices. Employers in all sectors in North Carolina are responsible for the health and safety of their employees, and for carrying workers' compensation insurance to provide injured workers with financial assistance. The risks to which office workers are exposed must not be ignored.

How to keep social media from derailing a personal injury claim

If you have recently been in a motor vehicle collision or some other type of accident due to someone‚Äôs negligence in Raleigh, you might qualify to file a personal injury claim. Before you do, watch what you say and do around everyone, especially when online or using social media. No matter how close you are to friends and family, discretion is important to prevent unnecessary complications with your claim. 

Motor vehicle accidents more prevalent in snow and icy conditions

Every year when winter comes around, drivers must adjust to the risks of driving in adverse weather conditions. Safety authorities say that, of all motor vehicle accidents that occur nationwide, 17 percent happen during the winter. This underscores the need for all drivers in North Carolina and other states where snow and ice are present on the roads to prepare themselves and their vehicles before the onset of winter. Those who were unprepared for the current harsh winter might have caused accidents that caused injuries to others.
