Warm weather may be coming to an end in the coming months, but Massachusetts' motorcyclists will continue to ride until that time comes. These individuals might enjoy the cost-saving benefits of riding a bike or the relaxation it offers, but one thing they do not enjoy is the risk of being hit by unaware and otherwise negligent or reckless motorists. Unfortunately, statistics show that motorcyclists are at extreme risk of being injured or killed in an accident, and Massachusetts' residents should take note.
Riding a motorcycle this time of year is supposed to be relaxing and fun. Unfortunately, a lack of motorcycle awareness often places motorcyclists in real danger of being involved in a serious Motorcycle accident. When this happens, serious injuries or death can result. Even a seemingly minor bump can be deadly to a motorcyclist. Unfortunately, one Massachusetts man is fighting for his life after such an accident.
Every day, workers place themselves at risk of injury. It is a necessary evil, as these individuals need a paycheck and most work environments are inherently dangerous. Construction workers must be near speeding vehicles and builders must go to great heights. For this reason, workplace safety should be the number one concern for all employers. When safety regulations are not abided by, a serious workplace accident may occur that leaves a worker with a severe injury. One such accident occurred recently in Springfield.
