Car accidents: 1 dead, 1 critically injured in head-on collision

Shortly after 7 p.m. on a recent Friday, Los Angeles County Fire Department received an alert about an automobile crash involving fire. The California Highway Patrol also responded, and upon arrival, crews determined that two vehicles had crashed head-on. Reportedly, this was one of those car accidents in which one driver passed another vehicle without looking out for oncoming traffic.

Prevalence of workplace accidents involving scaffolds concerning

The high number of scaffolding accidents in the construction industry nationwide, including in California, continues to cause alarm. Typical workplace accidents involving scaffolds include slip-and-fall incidents off slippery or incorrectly inclined platforms or the lack of fall protection or safe anchor points for tethering lanyards. Other hazards include dropped tools or other objects that are not secured on scaffolds or electrocution because scaffolding structures are too close to overhead cables.

How to drive near a semi truck

Accidents with tractor trailers are the most dangerous because of the sheer size of these large trucks. Consequences include severe vehicle damage, traumatic brain injury and other major bodily harm. Fatality rates in trucking accidents have increased, according to data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

San Diego trash truck drivers fight for their employee rights

It is not uncommon for employers to get away with unfair deductions from the wages of employees because individual workers do not know that the same thing is happening to their colleagues. Then, when they realize that they are not alone, they typically find it easier to stand up for their employee rights. Every California worker is entitled to be paid for the hours he or she works, and a class action lawsuit is one way to get unpaid wages.

Two ways to recover damages after fatal truck accidents

It is not unusual for motorists on California highways to feel threatened by big rigs sharing the roadways with them. However, a recent accident that claimed the life of a FedEx driver proves that the opposite can also apply. Reckless or negligent actions by drivers of passenger vehicles can cause the operators of tractor-trailers to lose control of their vehicles, with devastating truck accidents as the result.

Employee rights violation alleged for working 18 months, 24-7

California workers might find it difficult to imagine having to work 24 hours a day, seven days a week for an extended period. However, a lawsuit was recently filed in another state in which a worker claims his remuneration was below the minimum wage level. He alleges his employee rights were violated during his employment as an oil field gate guard.
