Vehicle recalls set record in 2015

While many car accidents in North Carolina are the result of driver error or unsafe road conditions, some accidents and injuries may be caused by defective vehicles. Even when drivers exercise due caution they still can find themselves in accidents because something went wrong in the manufacturing process. Some defects are serious enough that people have died or been severely injured as a result.

28 mining deaths occurred in 2015

Many North Carolina workers who are employed in the mining industry understand just how dangerous the job can be. In fact, the mining industry is considered to be one of the most dangerous industries in the nation. However, the number of deaths in the industry dropped to a record low of 28 in 2015.

The importance of worker classification in North Carolina

To some, 2015 was the year of the on-demand startup. Through the use of an app, customers could get a ride to the store or find someone willing to deliver their groceries to them. These companies typically rely on independent contractors who are supposedly allowed to set their own hours and act as their own boss. By working with independent contractors, on-demand companies don't have to carry workers' compensation insurance or pay Social Security taxes.
