Four major types of fatal construction site accidents

All around us, we see buildings constructed. Whether it is a home, store, apartment complex or a business building, these structures are considered imperative to society in California and elsewhere. While important, some buildings in San Diego and elsewhere have many dangers on site. While construction companies work to prevent such injuries and to address them if they occur, the reality is that significant harm could happen if an accident were to occur, causing workers to seek compensation for their losses.

Repetitive-strain injuries require quick medical care

Repetitive-trauma injuries are injuries that arise due to performing the same movements time and time again. For example, if you work in a factory, you might complete a task several times a minute over the course of several hours. Making the same movements over and over again wears down your body, and if you are not careful, the motions can lead to injuries.

Drunk driving: A risk to everyone on the roads

There is never an excuse for getting behind the wheel of a vehicle while intoxicated, yet people do it every day. This is particularly hazardous when there are more people on the roads, like around holidays and special events. Despite that, those individuals aren't worried about their actions, even though they could lead to injuries and deaths.

One seriously injured in semi-truck crash

Vehicles or varying sizes fill the roadways in California and elsewhere. Many assert that more large trucks are seen during the holiday season, as many shipments and deliveries are expected to be made in time for a holiday celebration. Nonetheless, no matter what time of year it is, passenger vehicles frequently encounter large trucks, such as semi-trucks and tractor-trailer trucks. While it is common to share the road with these massive vehicles, large trucks do not operate and maneuver the same way passenger vehicles do. They must take wide turns, they have large blind spots and they cannot stop as quickly. These factors alone can be a major factor in a truck crash.

Car accident injures bicyclist

With the agreeable weather in San Diego and the number of people who are interested in physical fitness, saving money and taking part in environmentally friendly activities, bicycle riding is a popular pastime. While these and other benefits are obvious, there are also inherent dangers with taking to the road on a bicycle. Many vehicles are operated recklessly. Drivers are often under the influence or distracted. This can cause a bicycle-motor vehicle accident. After this type of car crash, it is essential for those who were injured to understand the challenges they will face and consider a legal filing.

Safety tips all nurses need to know

As a practicing nurse, you probably already know that there are plenty of hazards lurking in the workplace. You may even have colleagues who have suffered injuries while working alongside you in a San Diego hospital. While many people think that working in health care is a safe job, it actually has one of the highest rates of workplace accidents.

Do more accidents occur over the holidays in California?

The hustle and the bustle of the holiday season can keep us busy. And any motorist in California or elsewhere can confirm that they see an increase in traffic during this time. Whether it is normal traffic going to and from work, those traveling to a holiday party or individuals traveling to spend time with friends and family, the holiday season is filled with many reasons to travel by motor vehicle. The issue with this is that with more vehicles come more risks, which could result in an increased amount of car accidents.
