Uber ride-sharing controversy comes to Jackson

Technology has changed our world in many ways. One major way is communication. In the past, individuals who needed a taxi used the phone book to locate the nearest company. With the advent of the smart phone and applications like Uber, the idea of ride-sharing has become big business. Growth, however, is sometimes accompanied by bumps in the road. Uber is now facing a firestorm of controversy over its practices.

Social Security Disability Benefits defined

Social Security is often associated with individuals who are retired. However, the Social Security Act that created this system covers more than just the elderly. Provisions in the act allow persons who are disabled to receive benefits once certain conditions are met.

What is OSHA?

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created a new era for the modern Mississippi workplace. The purpose of the act was to make American workplaces safer. The goal was to prevent workers from being killed or seriously injured while at work. To execute this function, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, was created. OSHA both creates and enforces all the protective workplace safety and health standards. This administration also creates training and provides assistance to workers and employers.

Nursing home abuse and the elements to succeed on a claim

For many Mississippians, a time will come when they must decide what type of care to get for their elderly loved ones. They may choose to hire a move-in aide or to clear out one of their own bedrooms so they themselves can care for their elderly loved one. Many, though, will choose to place their loved one in a nursing home. While these institutions can be extremely beneficial for their residents and their residents' families, sometimes negligence leads to substandard care and significant harm.

We can help with the benefit process after an injury

Prior posts on this blog have discussed how people in Mississippi may think they will be able to qualify for social security disability benefits if they are injured. They may be counting on these benefits to help them cover the costs of their rehabilitation. If they are disabled permanently, they may even need these benefits in order to make ends meet long term.
