Understanding the symptoms of diseases from asbestos exposure


People in North Carolina who might have faced exposure to toxic material at work may wonder whether or not they are beginning to show signs of various diseases such as mesothelioma. The symptoms of lung disease can be confusing at first, but it's important to understand these symptoms.

When must employers have workers' compensation insurance?


When an employee in North Carolina is injured or made ill on the job, they may seek workers' compensation benefits to help them out financially while they recover. However, employees may wonder whether their employer must have workers' compensation insurance in place, and what may happen to their employer if they don't.

Workplace illnesses can qualify for worker compensation claims


There is likely no human alive today who can boast of never having been sick. Some illnesses, such as the common cold, take people out of the workplace for a day or two at the most. Other illnesses, however, can leave a person unable to work for weeks, if not months, which can force him or her to rely on the Family and Medical Leave Act. But what happens when the illness was caused by something the worker was exposed to while on the job and what happens if the illness lasts years or is permanent in nature?

Speeding in work zones causes most construction worker accidents


At any given time there are more than 150 major road work zones across North Carolina, according to state transportation officials. These work zones are not only on major highways but also on secondary roads and North Carolina routes. When drivers approach a work zone, it is imperative that they slow down and pay close attention to the road to ensure construction workers' safety. When they fail to do so, tragic construction workers' accidents can take place.

Construction worker badly injured in Charlotte accident


Accidents can happen at any kind of workplace, but, as North Carolina construction workers know all too well, some workplaces are more dangerous than others.
