Raisin machine accident leads to death in California

When you work with heavy equipment and machinery, it's important that you don't wear loose clothing and that your hair is always tied back or held back away from moving parts. If you're not careful or are highly unlucky, you could be caught up in the moving parts and badly hurt or killed.

Falling objects cause real risks for workers on the job

Out of all the different kinds of construction accidents, those caused by falling objects result in many of the injuries seen in emergency rooms. Falling objects can be almost anything from planks that weren't secured to hammers or tools that didn't have safety straps to keep them attached to the worker overhead.

Driver suffers serious injuries when pinned in truck-car crash

Drivers of passenger vehicles should be cautious when sharing the road with large trucks. Since these rigs are often traveling at significant speeds with the driver focused on getting to a destination, it is easy to get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time and have a truck-car crash. Because passenger vehicles are so much smaller, the occupants can suffer serious injuries and fatalities in these accidents. This can cause a series of personal and financial problems as the victims try to recover or the family left behind tries to move on.

Violence against staff in hospitals may be on the rise

Most people wouldn't think of hospital work as inherently dangerous or particularly violent, but hospital staff members suffer workplace injuries at a higher rate than people in most other industries. Although many of these injuries result from machinery, dangerous bodily fluids and the physical exertion involved in lifting or moving patients, some of these workplace injuries suffered by hospital staff are the result of workplace violence.

Fatal accident at lumber yard leads to death of man

In San Diego and across Southern California, there are jobs where workers are constantly at risk of being injured. Some of these workplace accidents are so serious that the worker is killed. These fatalities can happen in any kind of job, whether it is physical labor, emergency response or sedentary employment. When there is a fatal accident on the job, those who have been left behind should be aware of their right to seek compensation in a wrongful death action.
