2 injured on the job in California refinery burn accident

An individual who has been injured on the job may be eager to pursue justice in the situation. For instance, he or she may seek the workers' compensation benefits to which he or she is entitled due to becoming injured on the job. However, the employee may also want a thorough investigation, especially if the job site appears to have been unsafe. In a recent California case, however, the company where two employees recently were injured has managed to put a stop to a federal investigation into its site.

California man fatally injured on the job at industrial worksite

A California man was working at a company owned by Volvo on a recent Thursday morning when he was struck and killed by a piece of heavy equipment. The 48-year-old man was a field service technician and was underneath a lifted front-end wheel loader when he was fatally injured on the job. The wheel loader was on support stands, but somehow slipped off the stands and fell on the man.

Work injury results from explosion at testing lab

A day may start out normally -- an individual takes a final sip of coffee, kisses his or her spouse goodbye and heads to work. Just eight hours later, however, that person could be trying to come to terms with the fact that his or her life will no longer be the same due to a work injury. Being injured on the job in California can indeed be a frightening scenario, particularly when the injured party has been working at the job site for a long time and simply never saw the catastrophe coming. In this type of seemingly dark situation, workers' compensation very well may provide a ray of hope.

Every California employee is at risk of injury while at work, regardless of their exact occupation. In some cases, one may sustain workplace injuries that result in death. When this happens, workers' compensation is still a possibility, as the surviving spouse or dependents are able to receive death benefits. This is something the family of two workers at a recent California workplace accident may be interested in knowing.

4 natural gas workers injured on the job at a compressor station

As California residents might expect, individuals who are required to handle dangerous chemicals, such as gas, are regularly exposed to potential harm. With such a high-risk occupation, there is a much greater chance of being injured on the job. Recently, in another state, four individuals were injured following the occurrence of a flash fire at a gas compressor station.

Temps more likely to get injured while working in California

Many companies throughout California and the rest of the nation are finding that it is cheaper to employ temporary workers rather than hire full-time employees. In fact, the industry employs nearly three million of these workers. Most temp workers are employed on construction sites, warehouses and factories -- all of which are some of the most dangerous workplaces that often see workers being injured while working.
