California construction worker killed on the job

Construction is one of the United States' most dangerous professions, constantly putting people in harm's way around heavy equipment in unusual environments. It is rare that a construction worker dies on the worksite or due to worksite conditions, but when it happens, families are faced with an unbelievable loss.

Motorcycles are one of the best ways to get around California. Anyone who has lane-split on a bike down a crowded freeway can attest to the freedom and convenience of two wheels over four. But biking can also pose dangers to riders that can prove life-changing or even life-ending.

Everyone is a pedestrian

You may spend most of your time driving from one location to the next, since it saves time, even on crowded California roads. However, this does not mean that you are never a pedestrian. In fact, you are a pedestrian each time you get into your vehicle or leave it. Whether you are hiking a few blocks to the grocery store or walking across the parking lot, you can suffer an injury because of a reckless or inattentive driver.

Employers take responsibility to keep construction workers safe

Construction is big business in California, especially the burgeoning areas in the southern part of the state, where it seems every block has a new building going up every year. From single-level homes to entire planned communities, construction workers and contractors are always hard at work preparing homes and workplaces for more Californians.

Motorcycles are a big part of life on the roads of California. Anyone in a freeway traffic jam has envied the freedom of bikes, and thousands prefer the scenery of the Golden State from behind handlebars. Although they can be more fun, motorcycles often present hazards to drivers and riders alike, and all types of drivers must be on the lookout for them.

Although the roads of California are generally safe for drivers and pedestrians, accidents occasionally happen. One of the leading factors in collisions in which one driver was at fault is excessive speed. When an accident happens, it is important to remain at the scene to ensure people are not injured and law enforcement can resolve the incident.
