Man injured in Huntsville motorcycle accident

Motorcycle accidents are all too common on the roads throughout Alabama, and all of the U.S. According to a recent study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is estimated that more than 1.2 million people sustained motorcycle-related injuries that required emergency medical treatment in the U.S. from 2001 to 2008. As a result of such injuries, victims of motorcycle accidents often face extended recoveries and, in some cases, long-term effects.

Possible anthrax exposure to workers at CDC

In workplaces where employees are handling, or coming into contact with, hazardous substances or materials, including chemicals, infectious bacteria and other toxins, employers in Alabama, and elsewhere, are required to establish and enforce safety protocols. The purpose of these measures is to avoid exposures and contaminations. Should exposure or contamination occur, despite these protocols, or due to a lack of proper policies, it can result in a worker contracting an occupational illness or injury.
