Getting compensation for drunk or buzzed drivers

Last week’s post on this blog discussed how commercial drivers are held to higher standards with respect to how much alcohol they can have in their systems. One of the reasons for these higher standards is that commercial vehicles are typically larger than private cars and can therefore inflict more damage in a truck accident or commercial vehicle accident.

Healthcare Workers Injured Moving Patients May Have Legal Recourse

With the current obesity epidemic in the United States, nurses and others who are routinely required to move patients may be at risk for injury in the normal course of their duties. In the past the practice was to collect six nurses who were the strongest on that floor and let them all work together to move an obese patient. Recently however, hospitals have brought in new ways of moving patients, such as ceiling lifts and different types of slings. These reduce the amount of weight a nurse actually has to lift at one time, and also help move the patient safely so that individual isn't harmed during the process. The goal is to reduce everyone's risk as much as possible.

Commercial drivers face tougher DUI regulations

Many North Carolina residents already know that driving while drunk or drugged is illegal in this state. It is also an extremely dangerous thing to do, especially if one is driving a large truck or other type of commercial vehicle.

Hazing on college campuses all too common

Each fall recent high school graduates head off to colleges located throughout the nation to continue their education. For many, academics are only part of the experience. Socially it is also an important time in a young person's life and some students opt to participate in fraternities and sororities. While there is no question that the organizations can positively impact the lives of those who participate, all too often there are reports of sorority or fraternity hazing in the news.
