Who can be held accountable in train accidents?

Indiana trains are used not only to transfer cargo across the state and state lines, but also to take passengers along as well. More and more reliance is being placed on locomotives as a means of transport and the likelihood for a train accident is only going to increase.

Do SSD recipients face any social stigmas?

It is an unfortunate reality of our time that many Indianans rely on Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits to make ends meet after an illness or injury prevents them from returning to regular work. These beneficiaries are often looked down upon, especially if the qualifying condition is one which is not physical.

If I start work again, will it affect my SSD benefits?

Readers of the Indiana Personal Injury Blog may be aware that Social Security Disability benefits are available to those individuals who can no longer work due to a disability expected to last longer than 12 months and who have worked in a job that qualifies them to receive SSD benefits. But what they may not realize is the Social Security Administration encourages recipients to rejoin the workforce by providing incentives to do so.

Assistance for truck accident victims

Last week's blog post touched upon the conflicting nature of the trucking industry. Although an integral part of commerce in the country, characteristics unique to the industry make truckers more susceptible to becoming involved in accidents similar to the one reported last week, resulting in one person's death.

The trucking industry is an integral part of the country's economy. These vehicles' size allows them to carry heavy freight across state lines, which means that not only do state laws apply to them, but so does federal law. Trucking hours, freight, and size are all aspects that are regulated in an attempt to ensure safety on the roadways for truckers and other motorists. A truck accident oftentimes leaves those in a passenger vehicle with serious injuries, as the disparity in the vehicle sizes means a car driver is less protected.
