People in any job can be injured, but some are more dangerous than others. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that there were 2.8 million non-fatal workplace injuries reported in 2017. These incidents often happen due to coworker carelessness or a failure on the part of an employer to provide proper safety gear.
Medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death and they are responsible for countless injuries each year. The most common ways people are hurt due to a medical professional’s negligence are a misdiagnosis, medication errors, surgical errors, infections acquired in a hospital, delayed treatment, and more.
When you go onto someone else’s property, the property owner has a duty to ensure your safety. This applies to business, government property, as well as private residences. If hazardous conditions cause patrons harm, property owners can be held liable. Slip and fall accidents are the number one cause of premises injuries.
There are thousands of products recalled each year due to design problems, manufacturing errors, or issues with the labeling. These products span industries and include toys, cosmetics, vehicles, appliances, foods, and more.
