Medicated driver caused fatal Huntsville motorcycle accident

Drivers in Jasper, as well as other cities throughout the U.S., who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, including prescription pills, can be a danger not only to themselves, but also to the other motorists with whom they share the roads. Accidents involving this type of negligent driver can often have catastrophic results ranging from serious injury to death. This can be especially true when motorcyclists are involved because they do not have the same exterior protection that motorists in other passenger vehicles have.

Resident's asphyxiation, death attributed to nursing home neglect

Many families in Jasper, and elsewhere, count on the round-the-clock, skilled care that most assisted living facilities offer to provide the level of care that their elderly or disabled loved ones require. There are some cases, however, when the facility and care providers entrusted with furnishing that care do not fulfill their responsibilities. Since many residents may not be able to speak up for, or help, themselves, nursing home neglect can easily result in personal injury, worsened medical condition and even death.

Distracted driver may have caused fatal Cullman crash

Many people carry cellular phones, which they use to communicate while at home and on the go. Despite many states, including Alabama, implementing laws to prohibit motorists from texting while driving, the National Safety Council reported that drivers who are text messaging cause 1.6 million accidents annually. Many people argue it only takes a second to read a text, but that is also all it takes for a life changing, or ending, car accident to occur.

Workers injured after equipment failure causes platform collapse

Workers in many fields in Jasper, and in other cities throughout the U.S., use different tools and equipment in the course of performing their jobs. Disrepair, defects, misuse and numerous other factors can result in tools or equipment malfunctioning, which can easily lead to a serious workplace accident. Often, workers may sustain serious injuries, or can even be killed, in these types of accidents.
