Southern California foundry fined followed workplace accident

When a workplace accident has resulted in harm to an injured worker, it is vital for them to be familiar with workers' compensation options available to protect them. A foundry in Southern California was recently fined greater than $280,000 for workplace safety violations after an accident resulting in the amputation of an employee's legs. As a result of the workplace accident, both of the employee's legs had to be amputated to free him from the conveyor where he was trapped.

Truck driver fatigue can lead to truck accidents

Truck accidents can result in a variety of different types of damage for victims and their families. During 2016, there were approximately 15,000 collisions between large truck and other vehicles. One of those accidents in the Palm Springs area near Indio resulted in a truck driver experiencing truck driver fatigue being charged criminally in association with the fatal accident. Accidents involving truck driver fatigue underscore the importance of complying with mandatory rest breaks.
