two men with hard hats
The world of work in the United States, indeed the world, has been rocked by the emergence of COVID-19. Businesses shut down; employees let go, working reduced hours, or working remotely. For those who have still worked as they did before the COVID-19 pandemic arose, comes the added specter of contracting the Coronavirus from exposure at work.

Workers in the health care field – especially the medics, emergency room doctors, nurses, CNAs, cleaning staff, and others – face a high risk of contracting the very same illness that literally shut down entire countries and industries. Frontline healthcare workers have become seriously ill, and tragically some have died.

Victims disabled in workplace accident
Have you been injured at work? Have those injuries led to prolonged recovery time and affected your ability to work, thereby resulting in wage loss or permanent physical impairment? If you’ve answered yes, then

by the workers’ compensation law, you are eligible for disability benefits in North Carolina. Read on to understand what these benefits are and when they are paid.

Motorcyclists
The roars of Harley Davidsons and heavy bikes on the roads are the surefire sign that summers are here, and so is the motorcycle season. Motorcycle riders simply enjoy the thrill and excitement that comes with zooming on the roads and feeling the air through the hair. But with all this fun and thrill, the rider and those sharing the road with them must take extra care to avoid crashes that can result in severe injuries and sometimes even deaths.

Did you know that according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 50% of the accidents related to motorcycles occur because of the negligence of other vehicle drivers such as car drivers, SUV drivers, and truckers? In 2015, about 4956 motorcyclists were killed in road accidents, while 88,000 sustained severe injuries. But let’s look on the bright side, and that is that these numbers can be avoided and minimized if vehicle drivers follow specific tips to safely and cautiously. Read on to learn the tips to sharing the road with motorcycle riders:

On top of Easyriders skipping this year and no events being able to happen due to COVID-19, we really do miss all of our friends in the biker community. We hope you all stay safe and stay vertical!

examines empty wallet
If you have been injured severely in an accident caused by someone else’s negligent behavior, you may be confined to bed and under medical treatment. This means you can’t work, and hence lose earnings.

Luckily, North Carolina law gives victims the right to seek reimbursement for lost wages so that they are compensated adequately. However, the nature of your employment and scope of injuries will affect what evidence you need to provide and how difficult it will be to support your claim. And that’s why it is essential to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer in North Carolina who can help you navigate through the process and fight for you to get the compensation that you deserve.

three police officers with shields
The whole country is rightfully concerned about the death of George Floyd while he was being arrested by the police. The video of Mr. Floyd begging for his life while being choked by kneeling Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is absolutely sickening. We at the Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor want to add our voices to say what happened to Mr. Floyd is wrong, and that reforms are badly needed in the way that the police use force. The sad part is there could be a George Floyd every day somewhere in America.

Law enforcement has its share of problems like all other professions. The popularity of shows like the original “Cops!” and now “Live PD” has given the public a better understanding of the stresses and strains of policing the general public on a daily basis. The relative low pay combined with the high stress makes it tough to attract and keep qualified candidates. Budget restrictions make it difficult for some departments to do the necessary training to educate their officers better. We do not expect our law enforcement officers to be perfect, but we, as a society, do expect the officers to stay within bounds.

Driving in summer
Did you know that, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), car drivers are at a higher risk of getting into accidents during the summer season than any other time of the year? Moreover, June, July, and August are the peak months for car accidents, also known as the 100 deadliest days of summer. Let’s take a look at the statistics before discussing the top reasons why accidents increase during summertime.

According to a 24-year study of car accidents carried by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:
