One of the many reasons that construction work pays well is that it is a relatively dangerous line of work. There is also much skill and education required for more complex roles in the construction industry, including electrical work, welding and other tasks. Every day, construction workers in New York and around the country risk their safety to help the country grow and provide for themselves and their families.

Frost heave from winter can result in dangerous, uneven sidewalks

When it comes to sidewalk maintenance, many building owners and managers may think that as long as the sidewalk cement isn't so old it's crumbling, they've done enough.

When you lose someone you love, it takes time to begin to heal. You may not want to deal with the legal battle you feel is ahead of you right away. It's okay to need time to recover from your loss, but keep in mind that the sooner you file a claim, the better it works in your favor.

Staying safe on your motorcycle over the winter months

Many motorcycle enthusiasts, even the most devoted, will pack their two-wheeled transport away when the temperature starts dropping. Doing so can be a good decision, from a safety standpoint. Those on motorcycles are already at increased risk for serious injuries or even death while driving, compared to those in enclosed passenger vehicles. Combine that risk with sub-optimal winter driving conditions, and the potential for a major accident increases.

File your wrongful death claim quickly to protect your family

When someone makes a mistake, acts negligently or otherwise causes a death, there may be criminal consequences. Sometimes, however, there isn't enough evidence for a conviction. The criminal courts have a high standard for conviction, which requires evidence beyond a reasonable doubt. That can mean that someone whose neglect, willful wrongdoing or mistake cost another's life won't face criminal penalties for what happened.
