What steps can one take to start a business in Massachusetts?

Owning your own business is part of the "American Dream." The idea of being a business owner is exciting, but it is important to make sure that all the proper legalities are met when establishing your new business. This post will give you a general idea of the steps to take in starting a new business in Massachusetts. However, any budding entrepreneur should seek the advice of an attorney, which this post cannot provide.

Changes are coming to when medical debt appears on credit reports

While the old adage goes, "Always expect the unexpected," in reality there are many things people in Massachusetts can't always see coming down the road. For example, a person could be seriously injured in a sudden car accident. Or, perhaps a person goes to their doctor for a routine check-up, only to find they have cancer. In other cases, a person may have a chronic illness, but suddenly be laid off from work, meaning they no longer have insurance to cover their medical costs. In fact, around 50 percent of all unpaid debt that shows up on credit reports involves medical bills.

Is your power of attorney legally enforceable?

Many people in Massachusetts may have taken the wise step of estate planning years or even decades ago, and, as part of their estate plan created a medical power of attorney and financial power of attorney. However, that does not mean that those documents should be left to collect dust. They need to be reviewed periodically, to make sure they are still in line with any changes in law that may have occurred.

Statistics about distracted driving are alarming

We all know that kids these days seem to have their smartphone or tablet attached to their hands. No matter where we go, we see them firmly focused on them, often not paying attention to where they are walking or even people who are trying to talk to them. While we have seen an occasional viral video of someone tripping while messing with their smartphone, it seldom ever leads to anything more serious than embarrassment and a bruised ego. But when the driver of a car is focused on their smartphone, things could get serious.
