How much can you expect to get if approved for SSDI?

As a resident of Rhode Island who has a disability that is substantial enough to prevent you from working, you may be thinking about applying for Social Security disability benefits from the U.S. Social Security Administration. You may, too, have questions about just how much money you can expect to receive each month, if approved, so that you can get a better idea of how to plan for your long-term financial future.

Motorcyclist killed by repeat drunk driver

Rhode Island residents may often hear about how the state has very strong laws when it comes to drunk driving. It is possible for a person convicted of driving under the influence to lose the right to drive for a while or even to spend time in jail. At the same time, most area residents still continue to hear reports about accidents caused by people who make the choice to drive when they are intoxicated. This logically may make people wonder if the laws are strong enough and what else they can or should do to crack down on these negligent drivers.

High school football teams dwindle due to head injury concerns

High school activity programs in Rhode Island and nearby states may experience decreased participation in football. For example, a math teacher and coach in Metuchen, New Jersey uses a beginning-of-the-year survey to identify students who are not playing sports and actively attempts to recruit them to his football team. A dramatic statewide decline in active partaking in high school football programs over two consecutive years has driven him to these drastic measures. For the first time in nine decades, his team forfeited a recent game due to a lack of sufficient players to make up an entire squad, and according to coaches and administrators, growing concern over head injuries is the primary reason for dwindling student involvement in this particular activity.

Why do semitrailer accidents happen?

If you are a victim of an accident involving a large commercial vehicle or semitrailer in Rhode Island, you understand how serious these accidents can be. Due to the large size and weight of these types of vehicles, crashes involving these trucks can have catastrophic consequences. Even a low-speed collision can result in serious or even fatal injuries for the people in smaller, lighter vehicles.
