24-hour work shifts double the risk of EMS worker injuries

When an emergency worker responds to a call in North Carolina, he or she might have been on duty for nearly 24 hours. Shifts of this length are common among emergency services employees, and a study published in a peer-reviewed journal found that longer shifts correlated with an increase in injuries and illnesses among workers.

North Carolina's wrongful death statute explained

When a person in North Carolina has been killed due to the negligence or wrongful actions of another, the decedent's surviving family members may be able to pursue a wrongful death civil lawsuit against the person whose actions resulted in their loved one's death. The ability to do so rests in a specific state statute that provides what types of damages may be recovered.
