Personal injury: Recalled pork skins could cause food poisoning

Anyone who experiences headache, fever, nausea, vomiting and weakness is advised to consider what he or she consumed within two to six hours before the onset of the symptoms. Sometimes food contains bacteria or undeclared ingredients that could cause food poisoning. In some cases, this could give rise to personal injury claims against the producer and marketer of the product. A North Carolina company recently recalled a dangerous food product that might cause health problems or even death.

Motor vehicle accidents might be fewer with stricter phone laws

Although North Carolina has had laws to limit mobile phone use while driving in place since 2009, lawmakers are advocating to revisiting those laws to further curb distracted driving, which remains prevalent despite existing laws. Sponsors of the proposed changes to the bill believe prohibition of all smartphone use by motorists will prevent motor vehicle accidents caused by device distractions. The National Conference of State Legislatures shows that the District of Columbia along with sixteen other states have complete bans on mobile phone use while operating a vehicle.

Workers' compensation: Contractor severs hand on Carowinds ride

Many visitors from various locations, including Raleigh, travel to Charlotte for a day of fun at Carowinds, an amusement park on the state line between South and North Carolina. The safety of all the rides is crucial, but few fun seekers pause to spare a thought for the workers who risk their safety to do maintenance on the equipment to ensure safe operation. The state-regulated workers' compensation system has dealt with many benefits claims from injured workers throughout the years.

Personal injury claim might follow collapse of Nike sneaker

When products malfunction or when defects lead to incidents that harm consumers, the manufacturers, retailers and any other entities in the supply chain might face financial accountability for monetary damages. Nike Inc. might soon be named in a civil lawsuit after a star basketball player of Duke University recently suffered personal injury when one of his basketball shoes came apart. The incident happened shortly after the start of a game against a rival North Carolina team.
