Protecting workers against pinch points

Employers in Florida, especially those in agriculture, construction, longshoring and general industry, should know what pinch points are and how to protect workers against them. Pinch points, or nip points, are areas between two moving machine parts, between a stationary part and moving part or between a machine part and some material that can catch a worker or part of the worker's body.

Incomplete data could put women at risk of injury

Female dummies used to collect crash test data are five feet tall and are 110 pounds. While this may represent the height and weight of an average woman, it doesn't necessarily represent every woman's body type. This is one reason why females are more likely to be hurt in crashes that occur on Florida highways and others throughout the nation. One study found that they are 73% more likely than a man to experience a serious injury or die in a crash.

Misdiagnosis can be a fatal mistake

Many patients in Florida and across the country have benefited from remarkable advances in medical diagnosing technology. As a society, people are living longer and with a better quality of life. Despite the overall improvement of medical practices and procedures, mistakes in individual cases do occur. Some doctor errors can have severe consequences and even result in death.

What factors played a role in the accident that left you injured?

Car accidents happen for many reasons, and it's not always immediately clear who is to blame or what factors played a role in what happened to you. It's normal to feel overwhelmed and confused after an accident, but you do not have to walk through the complex aftermath alone. If your accident was the result of the reckless or negligent actions of another Florida driver, you may be able to seek financial compensation through a personal injury claim.

Two Florida cities have some of nation's safest roadways

Car accidents can lead to serious damage for people in Florida and across the country. There are a number of factors that can contribute to the crash rate, from weather conditions to road circumstances to dangerous or negligent driving. This is one reason why so many people and companies are enthralled by the potential of autonomous driving as a solution to the dangers of car crashes. However, despite the future possibilities, those technologies are still under development and crashes remain prolific. In 2017 alone, 6,452,000 drivers across the country experienced some time of collision.

DUI fatalities at their highest on the Fourth of July

Alcohol intoxication is a contributing factor to many car accidents in Florida and elsewhere in the US. Fatal DUI crashes are especially apt to occur during holidays, none more so than the Fourth of July. Using data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, researchers at ValuePenguin found that the DUI fatality rate for July 4th is 42.4 per day. Between 2010 and 2017, 1,192 people died in DUI crashes during this holiday.
