Tom Tupa wins Maryland workers' compensation case

Workers' compensation is a system that is designed to compensate workers for workplace injuries. Professional athletes who are injured make the news all the time, but it is not very often that an injury to a professional athlete makes the news because of a workers' compensation case. However, an injury to an NFL player has recently done just that.

The Triangle Shirtwaist fire and 100 years of workers' rights

One hundred years ago this week, a fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist textile factory proved to be one of the most devastating industrial accidents in American history. The fire began on March 25, 1911, when textile scraps stored on the factory floor caught fire. Without adequate fire protection and fire escapes, 146 workers, mainly young immigrant women, died in the fire. Newspaper readers were shocked to read accounts of some workers who leapt, holding hands, from the ninth story to certain death in order escape the inferno. As is often the case, great tragedy proved to bring about great change.

Truck underride accidents in the United States result in the death of more than 350 people per year and there is valid cause for concern that not enough has been done to prevent these deaths.
