1 killed, 1 injured in Massachusetts workplace accident

The vast majority of workers in this country report to work every day in order to support themselves and their family members. While most employers strive to ensure safe working conditions, a serious, even fatal, workplace accident can occur. For example, one man was killed and another seriously injured in a recent accident in Massachusetts.

Causes and prevalence of certain types of medical malpractice

Medical care professionals in Massachusetts often have difficult jobs. Many are expected to work unreasonable jobs, dealing with unreasonable patients. However, making correct decisions and adequately communicating with a patient's medical care team can often prevent a serious mistake. A recent study looked at several types of medical malpractice.

Lawsuit claims nursing home negligence, seeks damages

Adult children are often put in the stressful situation of having to make medical decisions for their ailing parents. In many cases, people in Massachusetts trust that a nursing home facility will provide proper care. Unfortunately, one out-of-state woman believes that nursing home negligence actually caused her mother's condition to worsen.

Massachusetts police investigate fatal car accident

Life is often unpredictable. As a result, many people are caught off-guard by the loss of a loved one. For example, the families of two deceased men in Massachusetts are likely still coming to terms with the news of a fatal car accident that took the men's lives and sent another young man to the hospital. Police are still investigating the accident.

Lawsuit claims failure to diagnose led to additional surgeries

There are a variety of different reasons a person in Massachusetts might undergo surgery. Regardless of the reason, it is the doctor's responsibility to notify a patient of any known risks of a procedure. Additionally, it is his or her responsibility to adequately diagnose and treat a complication. One out-of-state woman claims that although the condition she suffered was a known risk of the procedure she underwent, her doctor's failure to diagnose her condition ultimately caused her more harm.

Compensation possible following Massachusetts pedestrian accident

There have been many inventions that help people function in their everyday lives. For example, cellphones allow people to contact loved ones whenever and wherever, while GPS units allow drivers to arrive at their destinations with relatively little effort. Even with the creation of these devices, it seems that people's lives are busier than ever and filled with an increasing number of distractions. Unfortunately, a distracted, rushed driver could cause a serious pedestrian accident.

Teen, mother injured in Massachusetts dog bite incident

Police and other service related dogs fulfill very important roles in this country. However, the dogs are still animals that must work closely with human handlers. One Massachusetts police dog was recently able to escape from his enclosure without his handler's knowledge, and reports indicate that a teenager and his mother suffered from dog bite injuries as a result.

Injury at baseball game could lead to premises liability case

For some people, attending a baseball game is their favorite way to spend a few hours. Fans who attend a game likely feel fairly safe. However, some people may question their safety after a recent accident in Massachusetts left a woman suffering from life-threatening injuries. The incident could lead to a premises liability lawsuit.

Girl dies after being hit by a car in Massachusetts

A birthday party is supposed to be a celebration of life, when family and friends come together to honor a loved one. Unfortunately, such an event in Massachusetts will likely only be remembered with sadness and grief after a young girl was reportedly hit by a car. The driver of the car has since been arrested and now faces multiple charges.

Officials investigate fatal workplace accident

Some people in Massachusetts and elsewhere knowingly take risks in their lives that could jeopardize their personal safety as well as the safety of others around them. Unfortunately, there are also some victims who are completely powerless to prevent or avoid a potential danger. Such appears to be the case in a recent out-of-state workplace accident that resulted in the death of a female construction worker.

Failure to diagnose toddler's illness led to her death

Parents in Massachusetts who are watching their children suffer as a result of an illness often feel helpless and powerless. As a result, they put their faith and trust in the abilities of medical care providers. Unfortunately, sometimes such providers fail to adequately care for a sick patient. The parents of a deceased two-year-old in another state claim that her doctor's failure to diagnose her illness ultimately led to her death.

Fatal car accident remains under investigation in Massachusetts

With the increased emphasis that has been placed on being physically active, people in Massachusetts are making attempts to be healthier. As a result, many people have turned to races such as triathlons that encourage a person to train significantly in advance. However, these events have certain risks associated with them, including the risks faced by bicyclists every time they use the roadways. Unfortunately, one man in Massachusetts was recently killed in a fatal car accident as he was completing the cycling leg of a triathlon.

OSHA investigation follows fatal workplace accident

Every person in Massachusetts faces a significant amount of dangers as they maneuver throughout their regular day. In fact, many people may be completely unaware of some of the potential dangers in one of the places where they spend a great deal of time -- their workplace. For example, one out-of-state family is likely in mourning after a workplace accident recently resulted in a fatality.
