Driving is a necessity in today's world, as most people need a car to get themselves to work, school or other important places. If a person has his or her license suspended here in Missouri, it can dramatically change day-to-day life. Many people choose to drive even if they have a suspended license out of necessity. However, if they are arrested, charges can pile up and make a bad situation even worse. This is what one woman may be facing after her arrest for driving with a suspended license and possession of methamphetamine.
Personal injuries can, and do, change people's lives every day. Whether it's a slip-and-fall accident that results in a moderate brain injury or a car crash that ruptures a lung, people who suffer injuries deserve to receive all the help they need to recover as much as possible.
One of the most common accidents in Missouri workplaces involves falls. Many companies across the country are encouraged to participate in the National Fall Prevention Safety Stand-Down, which takes place this year from May 6 to 10. A number of employees who experience a fall at work often rely on workers' compensation as a part of their healing process. Organizers of the week-long event hope to raise awareness of potential hazards in the workplace and teach employers and employees safety strategies.
