Safety must be a priority in the construction industry

Construction site safety is a crucial part of the industry. The very nature of the work and the tools, machines and supplies that it takes to erect buildings make this a hazardous profession. The burden for construction site safety falls on the contracting company, or employer, of the workers who are getting the job done.

Workers’ compensation: The basics

As a construction worker in Wilmington, you probably know just how dangerous your job is. But, do you know what to do if you suffer an injury on the job? Do you know whether or not you even qualify for workers' compensation benefits? And, if you do qualify, do you know how to file a claim?

"The weather outside is frightful": Stay safe on the roads

Driving in the cold winter months is sometimes a lesson in patience. The road conditions might make it hard to navigate in the same manner that you are accustomed to driving. Trying to find ways to remain safe and comfortable becomes a priority in these months.

With these tips, you can spot a distracted driver

Driving through Wilmington is dangerous even at the best times. However, when you combine poor weather conditions and distracted drivers, the roads turn deadly. It only takes one second for a driver to take his eyes off the road and slam into your car while you commute to work. While the only way you can truly avoid a distracted driver is to completely stay off the roads, this is an extremely unlikely scenario.

Too many distracted drivers are on the road these days

Distracted driving is too common these days. It seems like almost anywhere you go, you will see drivers who are on the phone, eating or fiddling with something in the vehicle. No matter how quick or how seemingly small the distraction, there is a chance that it will lead to a crash.

Crane safety for the construction site

If you are a construction worker in Wilmington, you have probably spent at least a little time around overhead cranes. Operators use these machines to move heavy loads, large objects, and other materials that you cannot move easily. While working around or with a crane, you have to stay alert for loads that move both vertically and horizontally.

Different things are compensable in car crash cases

Seeking compensation for the damages in a car accident requires you to think carefully about a lot of different things. As you start considering the damages that you have to deal with, you might come to realize that the cost of the accident is much more than what you originally thought.
