Slippery Boatdecks

I came across an interesting case recently-  it involved a ship deckhand who slipped on a vessel he was helping to load;  apparently, he slipped on a mixture of slick oil and water and sustained serious back injuries as a result.

Playground Accidents

Once again, it is clear that almost any injury can become the subject of a civil lawsuit.

Bicycle Assembly

I read about a case recently where a Washington state resident was riding his bicycle when the bike stopped suddenly, throwing him off the bike, over the handlebars and onto the road.  He had purchased the bike about 3 weeks prior to this incident and had paid to have the bike assembled.  An inspection determined that the bolt which connects the handlebars to the stem assembly was not tightened properly.  Not surprisingly, his injuries were fairly serious and including a dislocated right shoulder.
