How can California business owners be proactive about safety?

If you fall down the steps heading out the door of a shop or become the victim of an assault on someone's property, knowing the basics of premises liability will help you navigate in the months following the incident. California residents who find themselves injured on someone else's property may seek monetary compensation for medical expenses, emotional trauma and more. If you choose to go this route, you will primarily attempt to prove the business owner was negligent in maintaining the property, and the negligence was a substantial factor in causing harm.

When accidents happen: California premises liability

California residents expect that the places they go to are safe. Be it the grocery store, an art museum, a theater, their doctor’s office, or any other place, they do not expect the property’s maintenance and upkeep to be so poor as to present a danger to their health or safety. If, however, they are injured, such as by falling on a wet floor or sidewalk, or if, for instance, one of their vehicle’s tires is ruined because of a jagged pothole in the parking lot, they may wish to sue for monetary damages.

Why construction workers are at high risk for TBIs

Construction workers in California run a substantial risk of receiving a traumatic brain injury while at work. This is because they often are required to perform their jobs while on roofs, scaffolding, tall ladders, etc., and they are at risk of falling from such high places. The Mayo Clinic states that falls are the most common cause of TBIs.

Common employment law violations you should know about

Many workers in California are too trusting of their employers. They believe their bosses have a good understanding of state and federal employment laws. However, many employers do not stay on top of the changes in these laws. As a result, some employers routinely violate these laws.

Falsifying log books is not uncommon among truck drivers

Residents of California and elsewhere have been long aware of the fatigue issues that often plague those who work in the trucking industry. Truck drivers are on the road for long hours. Coupled with a lack of sleep, driving for hours at a time with nothing to look at but the road ahead creates a dangerous drowsy driving situation.

How homeowners can prevent injuries

As the holiday season begins, many people will host guests in their California homes. Homeowners have an obligation to ensure the safety of their guests. A previous blog discussed the situations in which people are responsible for an injury. This blog will explain how people can keep injuries from occurring at their homes.
