Excavating Accidents

TASA ID: 1092

OSHA states that workers have a right to a safe and healthy work environment, including construction workers handling excavations in trenches.  A trench is a type of excavation or depression in the ground that is generally deeper than it is wide (as opposed to a wider gully or ditch) and narrow compared to its length (as opposed to a simple hole). Trenches are used on many construction sites to lay pipe, cables and conduits among other reasons.

Judge the Deed (and, more importantly, what lead up to it), Not the Breed

TASA ID: 2287

Calls often come in asking me to opine on the inherent dangerous nature of certain breeds (i.e., American Pit Bull Terrier or Rottweiler). Attorneys are often both surprised and annoyed when I tell them, “No.” Instead, I advise looking into the stewardship of the dog, whereupon neglect is usually found. Lack of responsibility towards a dog’s emotional, mental, and physical well-being, possibly combined with a dog’s inherent breed tendencies, are always the true culprit in dog bite cases.

Escalating Violence and Parental Litigation: The National Call for Student Safety Plans in School Districts and Universities

TASA ID: 1646

If there is any university president or school superintendent in the nation who currently operates without formalized school safety plans in place (quite apart from the noticeable but ignored "thou-shalt-nots" festooned on campus walls, doors and fences), s/he needs to regard-as a wake-up scream-the thunderous allegations of negligence, child endangerment, foreseen traumatic event, breach of duty of care, sexual molestation, dereliction of duty, and reckless disregard hurled by a passing parade of aggrieved and angry parents.

Inappropriate Buffer Zones in Sports and Recreation May Lead to Litigation

TASA ID: 658

A young girl in a daycare gymnasium ran to access a low trampoline which was in close proximity to an unpadded wall.  She tripped on the egress of the mat ramp, sustaining a head injury.  Three of the gymnasium walls were padded, while the fourth was not padded, thus creating a double standard of care. There have been many sport/recreation litigation cases in which the proximate cause for the injury is related directly to inappropriate safety zones on the court or field, or in the gym.
