The basic elements to prove in a wrongful death case

The loss of a loved one can be difficult to cope with, but when the death is caused by the negligent or reckless behavior of another party, it can be even more devastating. These types of unfortunate situations can manifest in a variety of ways, such as medical malpractice, a fatal workplace accident, a fatal car crash or even due to a defective product. But, in the end, there is still a loss of life that needs to be accounted for.

What does 'substantial gainful activity' mean for SSD benefits?

Most of our readers know that millions of people throughout the country suffer from injuries in a wide variety of accidents every year. Some are injured in household accidents, others playing sports and many more are injured in car accidents. Although the vast majority of these accidents are fairly easy to recover from, there are some that leave the injured victim with a serious medical condition, and as a result they will need to apply for Social Security Disability benefits in order to secure financial assistance.

What is 'repetitive motion disorder'?

Although the vast majority of our readers probably understand that there are many people who are employed in jobs that are potentially dangerous, they probably also know that there are just as many people who engage in simple and mundane tasks in their positions of employment. Some factory workers, for instance, may stand in the same place doing the same thing all day, and many people who work in offices may sit at the same desk and complete the same tasks day in and day out. The reality is, however, that even these workers may be putting themselves at risk for debilitating health disorders -- repetitive motion disorder, in particular.

Filing for workers' compensation after a work injury

Some of our readers may know a bit about the workers' compensation program. In general, state law mandates that employers must pay for medical treatment and a portion of lost wages for employees who are injured on the job. There are, of course, exceptions, most notably if the injury occurred when the employee was not technically "on the job," or if the employee was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident. Barring those limited exceptions, in general it does not matter how the work injury occurred.
