When an employee takes legal action following an accident

There are many facets of business litigation, from allegations of unlawful discrimination to sexual harassment and wage violations. That said, work-related accidents can be especially upsetting for injured workers and even their employers. From taking time off work, which can have negative consequences for workers and the entire company, to filing for workers’ comp, there are many issues to consider with work accidents. Moreover, some employees may decide to file suit after a work-related mishap.

When do most deadly crashes occur?

For those who are concerned about the likelihood of a deadly accident taking place, there are many different factors to review, such as the prevalence of drunk driving and the ways in which poor weather conditions can affect the roads. However, it may be a good idea to look at accidents and when they occur more frequently based on the time of week and the time of day. Fatal accidents can take place at any time, but there are certain periods when the likelihood of such an accident may be even greater.

What are some risky behaviors that teen drivers may exhibit?

When a young person first receives his or her driver’s license, they are likely to be very excited and look forward to their new-found freedom. However, this can lead to concerns from their parents, who should be aware of the different risks associated with driving at a young age. Whether you are the parent of a teen driver or are a young driver yourself, it is important to understand and avoid some of the risky behaviors that some people exhibit behind the wheel.

How common are work zone injuries?

For those who work in road construction sites, all sorts of dangers may be present every day, from injuries caused by machinery to exposure to extreme heat. Unfortunately, road construction workers also run the risk of being struck by vehicles while they are on the job, which can leave them seriously injured or even result in the loss of their lives. If you are employed in this industry or are a driver who comes across road construction, it is important to be very careful. Moreover, it may be helpful to know how prevalent work zone injuries actually are.

On-the-job traffic accidents

People are involved in accidents for all sorts of reasons, whether they are hit by someone who is intoxicated or collide head-on with another vehicle because the driver lost control due to ice on the road. Sometimes, people find themselves in a crash during their commute to work in the morning or on their way home during rush hour. Moreover, an accident may occur while someone is on-the-job, whether they drive a taxi or large truck or are driving around in a company vehicle.
