Trial Set To Begin For Navy Man Accused Of Killing Four In DUI

Though the incident happened in 2016, it has taken a while for this case to reach the trial stage. You may remember when Richard Sepolio, now 27, was accused of driving under the influence of alcohol after his truck lost control on a transition ramp, flew over a guardrail, and landed in a park where hundreds of people were gathered. Four people were killed because of the impact.

Truck Drivers Can Suffer From Serious Injuries

Have you ever thought about what it takes to fill your store shelves with the products you buy each week or how construction materials are moved from place to place? When it comes to one industry that is vital for our country, the trucking industry and those who work in it deserve our thanks.

However, truck drivers are also prone to many injuries that you may not even think about. At Hiden, Rott & Oertle, LLP, our qualified and experienced team is ready to help if you are a trucker who has been injured due to workplace activities. If you need a San Diego work injury attorney, you can call us for help today.

TIP-OVER INCIDENTS CAN CAUSE MAJOR HARM

When you buy something new for your home, we know that the last thing you think about is that the item will cause harm to you or your family. You certainly do not expect that it will tip over onto someone. Unfortunately, this is one of the least talked about risks associated with certain products despite being a major problem throughout the country. Today, we want to talk about tip-over incidents. 

SLIP AND FALL INCIDENTS CAN BECOME COSTLY

When you leave the comfort of your home to go out and do some shopping, head to the bank, or stop by a local government office, the last thing you need to worry about it getting hurt. We know that you are a careful person, but there are times when another person's negligence can cause you harm. Slip and fall incidents are one of the most common, and most costly, injuries that can happen to someone. 

CHIPS RECALLED AFTER ALLERGIC REACTION

If you or your loved ones have any food allergies, then we are sure you are used to scanning every food item you buy for a list of ingredients and allergens. Unfortunately, a recent recall shows us that may not be enough. We are learning that Frito-Lay and the US Food and Drug Administration are recalling Stacy's Simply Naked Pita Chips. They say that hundreds of bags were filled with a different flavor of chip that "could expose consumers with severe milk allergies to a potential allergen."

Who Pays When A Defective Tool Causes Injuries?

Some DeWALT drills nationwide were just recalled due to a shocking hazard. In total, about 122,000 of the products were sold to US consumers. While there have been no reported deaths due to this hazard, we know that getting shocked is not something that anyone, particularly a construction worker, needs to worry about if they are already working in risky places.

Third Party Contractors And Liability

When you go to work, especially in the construction industry, you know there is a chance you will get hurt. However, you probably do not spend much time dwelling on that because you know you will be covered if anything happens. Workers' compensation insurance is there when you need it.

Preventing Back Injuries In The Workplace

Back pain and back injuries are not something that anyone wants to think about. Unfortunately, we know that many of our back injuries come from things that happen at work. Sometimes, workplace back injuries happen from a fall or overexertion. Other times, these injuries develop over time due to continual strenuous activity.

HAND AND PORTABLE TOOLS POSE RISKS FOR WORKERS

When you go to work at a job that requires you to use hand tools, we know that you take steps to stay safe when using them. However, your employer also has a responsibility to ensure your safety. The construction industry is a high-risk industry when it comes to worker injuries and employers need to be vigilant.
