Boston-Area Man Dies in Elevator Accident

A tragic elevator accident in Boston, Massachusetts, killed a man who was working on a freight elevator. The accident occurred when the elevator fell on the man after he had apparently rigged it to stay in the air while he performed some kind of maintenance.

According to the police report, the elevator accident happened at about 4:10 p.m. in a warehouse at State Garden Inc. The warehouse is used to hold produce. The man who was attempting to perform maintenance on the elevator does not work for an elevator company, but was working on the machine anyway.

At the moment the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as well as the district attorney’s office are investigating the workplace accident. While this victim was killed in the elevator accident, there are many other elevator accidents that happen all over the country where people suffer serious and life-altering injuries.

If you or one of your loved ones has been involved in an elevator accident, you deserve to recover compensation for injuries, loss of work, medical bills, and pain and suffering. To help you with your elevator accident claim, please contact an experienced elevator or workplace accident attorney to help you identify areas of compensation.

Man Dies in Construction Accident

In Calgary, Alberta, a man was killed when metal forms shifted, slipped, and fell on him. Other workers at the building said they could feel the entire building shake when the construction accident occurred.

Unfortunately, construction accidents occur all the time whether the construction site is a house, building, or office, being injured on the job can be terrible. If you’ve ever been injured in a construction accident, it’s important that you contact an experienced construction accident lawyer.

Construction accidents can be very confusing. Often times, construction accident cases involve worker’s compensation, medical history, employment background, and even wrongful death. Since construction accident cases can be so difficult to handle, meeting with an experienced construction accident lawyer is the best thing to do if you’ve been injured.

In addition to construction accidents, people can be injured as a result of many other accidents while at work, including slip and fall accidents, elevator accidents, and pedestrian accidents.

If you or a loved one has been injured after a construction accident or any other kind of accident, please contact the Accident Lawyers Network today to schedule a free initial construction accident consultation.

Tips for Avoiding Motorcycle Accidents

As the summer months approach, there are going to be more and more people hitting the roads on their motorcycles. With more riders getting onto the roads every year, the number of motorcycle accidents also rises. If you are a motorcyclist, paying attention and avoiding a motorcycle accident is the most important things you can do. 

Unlike passengers in car accidents who have airbags and the frame of the vehicle to protect them in case of an accident; a motorcyclist is completely vulnerable if they are involved in an accident. Some of the ways motorcycle riders can do to avoid motorcycle accidents include: 

·         Wait at least 15 minutes after rain – If it’s been raining outside recently, the moisture can draw out oil and other liquids in the pavement left behind by cars.  When this occurs, the roads can become very slick and riding can be dangerous. By waiting for a few minutes after it rains, you can make sure the roads are dryer and your ride is safer.

 ·         Stay out of blindspots – While this can be impossible sometimes, staying away from the blindspots around other cars will make sure cars see you. Many motorcycle accidents are caused when drivers fail to take small motorcycles into account when driving. 

·         Wear bright clothing – Again, wearing brighter clothes or clothing with reflective strips will help you stay visible. 

If you’ve suffered an injury after being involved in a motorcycle accident, it’s important that you contact the Accident Lawyers Network to schedule an initial consultation with a motorcycle accident lawyer in your area.

Wisconsin Traffic Deaths Down

Not only are traffic fatalities down in Wisconsin, they’re at their lowest level since World War II. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation and Bureau of Transportation Safety reported an 11 percent drop this year compared to the same time frame for last year. As of April 2009, 135 people have been killed in traffic accidents, compared to 151 in April 2008. Forty-two people were killed in the month of April; though this may seem like a lot, it is the fourth safest April in over 60 years.

However, every silver lining has a touch of grey, as they say. Motorcycle accident deaths are on the rise. Three motorcycle deaths were reported as of April 2008, but there have been ten as of this April. There are several factors that could be the reason for this: gas prices are still high in many areas so more people are riding motorcycles, motorcyclists refusal to wear helmets, and warmer weather bringing out more inexperienced riders. Because May is Motorcycle Awareness Month in Wisconsin, as it is in most parts of the country, the Bureau of Transportation Safety is reminding motorcyclists about safety.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, please contact an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area.

Motorcyclist Hits Turkey in New York

Of all the road hazards we learn about when we get our driver’s license, turkeys are not usually mentioned as a danger. Of course, it probably depends on the location; for most of us, moose and bears are not a problem, but they can be in Alaska. So, take the wildlife of Palermo, New York as yet another cautionary tale.

State police there say a 22-year-old man was injured when he collided with a turkey while travelling down Route 3. Technically, the turkey hit the motorcycle when it flew into the path of the rider. The man lost control of his motorcycle and slid off the road. Fortunately, his injuries are not life threatening. There is no word on the turkey.

The wild turkey can grow to nearly 20 pounds, be almost four feet in length, and has a wingspan between four and five feet. Hitting one of these on a motorcycle doesn’t seem like such a small thing when you consider this. On a related note, this is further proof that the efforts to reintroduce the wild turkey in areas where it was overhunted have been successful. They now roam over most of the US and into Canada and Mexico.

If you are ever injured in a motorcycle accident when you hit a large game bird, please contact an experienced personal injury lawyer. Though you may not get anything from the turkey, an attorney can help you with any insurance claims you may have to file or other issues that come up.

Tour Bus Crashes in California

Less than a week after a tour bus accident in California killed five people, another tour bus has crashed. The most recent bus accident occurred in Southern California on Saturday after the bus hit a freeway divider south of Los Angeles near the town of Perris.

All 25 people aboard the tour bus were injured. Six passengers sitting at the back of the bus were trapped and needed to be extracted by emergency personnel. Eight of the 25 are in critical condition and the other 20 had moderate injuries. The accident shut down the highway for hours.

The cause of the accident is under investigation. However, authorities have said the travelers are from the town of Colton and had gone to San Diego for a Cinco de Mayo festival. They were returning home at the time of the accident.

Both this accident and the accident in Soledad, California last week are only similar in that they were both tour buses. It is unknown if these accidents were the result of driver error, mechanical malfunction, or something else.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident, please contact an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area.

Olympic Sprinter Involved in Jamaica Car Crash

Usain Bolt, a champion Jamaican Olympic sprinter, was involved in an auto accident in Kingston, Jamaica on Wednesday. Jamaica police say Bolt was speeding on a wet highway when he lost control of his BMW M3 and went off the road. Though the vehicle was heavily damaged, neither Bolt nor his female passenger was seriously injured. However, they were both taken to a Spanish Town hospital to be checked out by doctors.

Bolt won the 100 and 200 meter sprint and was part of the Jamaican 4x100 relay team, which won the gold at the Beijing Olympics.

A combination of weather conditions and speed causes thousands of accidents a year across the country. However, while we remain focused on things at home, other nations have accident statistics that can be just as startling as those here, and they are caused by the same things as they are in the US. Put a man behind the wheel of a vehicle, and he’ll inevitably crash it at some point in his life.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident, please contact an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area.
