Things can go wrong when a truck driver applies the brakes

Truck accidents are complex events that often result in trauma, injury and property damage. Even when a commercial truck is moving at a slow rate of speed, a collision can result in damage that may leave innocent people dealing with significant injuries. Because these vehicles are so much heavier and bigger than other vehicles on the road, it is easy to see how these types of accidents are so serious and why victims often need continued care and support.

Construction accidents -- 3 injured, 1 dead

Three construction workers were injured and another was killed in a recent scaffolding accident in New York. Two of the victims' injuries were described as serious, while the third suffered minor injuries. Sadly, construction accidents have contributed to at least two deaths in the city since the beginning of 2020.

Construction site safety remains a serious concern

Construction can be risky work, and the men and women who work in this field may face a higher chance of an accident. Because of this, employers should strive to make worksites as safe as reasonably possible. Increasing safety and prioritizing certain measures can reduce the chance of accidents and make it less likely a worker will suffer a serious or disabling injury. 

How does substantial gainful activity impact disability benefits?

If you are eligible for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration, it means that you are unable to work because of a disabling condition or unable to earn enough to meet your basic needs. It can be difficult to secure these benefits, and the SSA holds a strict definition of disability. One thing they will look at is your ability to earn an income.

Filing a personal injury suit for a trucking accident

Tractor-trailer drivers serve an important function in New York's economy. But while these men and women transport goods all across the country, they are not always as cautious as they should be. You have probably witnessed negligent or reckless behavior by these drivers, such as speeding, eating behind the wheel or texting. If one of those drivers caused your accident, you might want to consider the benefits of filing a personal injury lawsuit.
