When you start your day at work, you deserve to feel safe and know that you will not be unexpectedly injured. But dog bites can happen anywhere nowadays, with more and more people out walking their pets through all areas of Boston. For workers who regularly visit their clients’ homes, there has been an uptick in dog bite injuries, especially when pet owners do not take proper steps to protect them.
Black boxes, or event data recorders (EDRs), are often mentioned after tragic plane crashes, but these devices are actually incredible common in day-to-day life. All modern semi-trucks are legally required to have black boxes in order to collect data about collisions, and most car manufacturers now add black boxes into their vehicles. If you bought a car in the past decade, it may include a black box that contains important information about any collision you experience.
Nothing is more horrific than being involved in a semi-truck accident. These collisions are rarely minor and often leave victims with serious injuries that last for years, if not the rest of their lives.
Paying child support is usually one of the most contentious issues after a breakup. Whether you are the one struggling to pay child support or receive the support from your ex, it is very easy to get into arguments. Also, when either parent gets a promotion or raise, it can heavily influence the amount of support being paid.
The past year has been a struggle for many, but the one force that carried us all through was the strength of our communities. Whether it was supporting local restaurants during the pandemic or donating money to help neighbors who were out of work, many “single” good deeds went a long way.
Since launching the Writing the Future Scholarship for 2021, our team at DiBella Law Offices, P.C., has been astounded at the outpouring of support from students across the country. This award was started to provide some much-needed financial support for students seeking higher education, and for us, simply helping someone else is its own reward. But getting to read your essays and learn about the good deeds you students are performing every day is also a huge honor, and we were overjoyed to hear your stories.
In most car accidents, responsibility is pinned on the driver who caused the collision. Naturally, if someone acted recklessly, such as driving while intoxicated, then they should be the one responsible for paying for any victim’s medical bills and other damages.
Distracted driving is one of the most dangerous habits people have developed over the past decade, leading to thousands of injuries and deaths each year across the United States. One of the worst aspects of it is how commonplace it has become.
Even long after a divorce has been settled, parents can still be embroiled in heated debates and arguments. Whether it starts with child support payments or custody schedules, there is no excuse for making threats, especially if they involve a child’s safety. Massachusetts family law courts expect parents to conduct themselves respectfully in and outside of a courtroom. If your ex threatens to take away your child, you should act quickly and use every legal resource to protect your child.
The state of Massachusetts is a no-fault insurance state, meaning most accident victims must pursue insurance claims with their own auto insurance companies after a crash, no matter who was at fault. While this system seems ideal, it restricts when and how a driver can recover compensation for his injuries. In addition, it is not universal for everyone on the road, as motorcycle riders do not receive the same benefits as drivers under this system.
