When grocery shopping turns into a slip-and-fall injury

Let’s say that you are grocery shopping, basket in hand, when you suddenly slip and fall, hitting your head—hard. Even under the store’s harsh fluorescent lights, you didn’t see the puddle of water underfoot. Now that you have been injured, you may have to pay hefty fees to receive medical care— and all because you slipped and fell while you were shopping.

Scaffolding accidents can cause serious injuries

Construction work frequently involves the use of scaffolding, lifts, hoists and ladders. In fact, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that about two-thirds of construction employees frequently use scaffolding and other types of lifts. Using this equipment can sometimes lead to serious workplace accidents-- and the injuries that result from these accidents can be incredibly serious.

Distracted boating could cause serious injuries

Most people are aware of the dangers surrounding distracted driving. Cars are now designed with the latest technology in their dashboards, including touch-screens and even texting and email. With so many tempting distractions at motorists’ fingertips, crashes caused by distracted driving are higher than ever.

Take precautions for your swimming pool

Most of the country is covered in snow, but it’s still (fairly) warm in Louisiana. That means that many Louisiana homes still have their pools open and running. Taking a quick dip, even in the winter, is a pastime that many pool owners enjoy. Most people associate pools with harmless fun, but they can also pose serious liability risks. A guest slipping and falling near your pool could lead to a major lawsuit. Not to mention accidental drowning, which is the second leading cause of injury-related deaths in young children.

Do roundabouts have your head spinning?

Among the most dangerous places to drive is through an intersection. Even when lights control who stops and who proceeds, the design of the intersection may result in a catastrophic wreck when someone makes a mistake. Accidents between cars in traditional intersections are frequently T-bones or head-on collisions, and these often mean devastating injuries and even death for the drivers and passengers involved.
