Construction accidents can be traumatic to Massachusetts workers

Massachusetts construction accidents can prove to be deadly, especially in cases where proper safety procedures are not followed. One person has died and two others have been injured following a recent incident involving modular trailers. Construction accidents are unfortunately common, even with multiple regulations governing safety in place.

Massachusetts construction worker dies in job site accident

A Massachusetts construction worker was killed in a job site accident over the weekend. Unfortunately, a job site accident often results in serious injury or, as in this case, even death. Regulations are in place to protect workers from such incidents, but accidents still happen as a result of many things.

Dangerous workplaces affect Massachusetts residents

A recent investigation involving farming accidents has drawn attention to the fact that there are many dangerous workplaces across the nation. Some may not realize that certain industries can be just as dangerous as or even more so than the construction industry. Safety programs are in place to try and improve these dangerous workplaces, but statistics show that 557 workers were killed nationwide in agricultural accidents in a single year. That statistic included other workplace deaths such as forestry and fishing accidents, all of which can affect Massachusetts residents.

Charges filed in Massachusetts bicycle accident causing death

When an accident leads to injuries or death, Massachusetts families and even entire communities can be devastated. In many cases, there may be no real answer to the questions of who caused the accident and why. In other cases, however, these questions may be answered through an investigation and may form the basis for criminal charges. That is exactly what happened recently to an individual believed to be responsible for a bicycle accident in June 2012.

Massachusetts town uses bicycle accident as motivation to change

There are some roads that were designed for cars only. However, with the increased popularity of commuting by bicycle, more and more Massachusetts citizens have been raising concerns over bicyclists' safety when riding on certain roads. In a recent hearing in Wellesley, a large number of people came together before the town to request that the town become friendlier to bicyclists so as to avoid an elevated risk of a bicycle accident transpiring.
