Stockton Personal Injury Cases
The most common types of personal injury cases we see in Stockton besides car accidents are water related. With boating being a favorite activity, Stockton's waterways see many drownings and personal injuries due to boat accidents each year.
Stockton boating safety officials urge people who take to the water to follow these safety precautions: be aware of weather; bring a portable radio, flashlight, and first aid kit; tell someone where you are going and how long you will be away; check your boat, equipment, boat balance, engine and fuel supply before setting off; know how to swim; wear a life jacket; and do not consume alcohol while on the water.
Further Water Dangers Include Pollution
Aside from recreational accidents, Stockton's waterways have been plagued by dangerous levels of pollution. In December of 2009, federal regulators and the Port of Stockton decided to reduce the level of polluted storm water that dumps into the Stockton Deep Water Channel since the EPA found deficiencies in the port nearly two years prior.
The agreement to ameliorate the pollution situation comes better late than never as Stockton streets and roads were not properly swept, increasing the chance that dangerous substances would flow into the Delta during the rainy season. This is a costly health hazard, costing about $200,000 to improve through monitoring and testing.
Other findings of the inspection include fertilizer residue in storm drains, soil from construction sites washing away, and tenants producing a large amount of storm water runoff. Since residents go in the water, it is imperative that the water be kept clean. Water pollution contaminants can have serious health effects like the spreading of typhoid and waterborne intestinal parasites such as amoebiases, giardiases, ascariasis, and hookworm.
