Grammercy man dies while at work

Every day Americans head out to work assuming that they will return home again. Unfortunately, those involved in fatal workplace accidents will never return home. One wrong move performing a mundane task in the workplace can sometimes result in a loss of life. For the families of most workplace accident victims, the workers compensation system will provide limited death benefits. The employer is immune from a civil lawsuit if it pays workers compensation benefits, but if there was some negligence on the part of a non-employer third party, a wrongful death suit may be an additional remedy available to surviving family members.

Court orders drugged driver to pay more compensation for loss

A Louisiana man who is currently finishing his time in prison for his role in a fatal car accident in which he struck three pedestrians, a mom and her two children, recently received both a rebuke and further consequences for his behavior from the Louisiana Court of Appeals. Following the fatal accident, authorities determined that the man had marijuana and oxycodone in his system. At the time he veered off the road and hit the family, he was speeding at 91 miles per hour.

Commercial vehicles transport items of all types, including potentially hazardous chemicals, throughout the United States. When any truck accident occurs, it can cause not only serious injuries but also traffic disruptions that last for a long time. When a hazardous material is being transported in such situations, the potential for disaster is multiplied.
