Workplace injuries from broken equipment

Like many of your neighbors, you must work to support yourself and your family members. If your job requires using equipment, you must realize that damaged or poorly maintained tools can leave you with a life-altering injury. Not only can such an injury make performing your job duties nearly impossible, but it can also destroy your overall quality of life. 

Can the state tax workers' compensation payments?

Injuries are an unfortunate part of employees' lives. These accidents are more common in certain industries than others, but pretty much every business that operates in North Carolina needs to have workers' compensation. The law states that any business with a minimum of three employees must have this coverage regardless of whether the organization has classifications as a corporation, limited liability company, sole proprietorship or any other designation. 

Are you at risk for an asbestos-related disease?

Asbestos is an umbrella term for a group of six naturally occurring minerals that together, create a known carcinogen. It is also a serious health hazard affecting countless Americans. Most Americans will undergo exposure to asbestos at some point during their lives. However, if you make your living in certain industries or work environments, your risk of prolonged exposure to asbestos, and suffering serious health complications as a result, may be far higher than that of the average American.
