High voltage line accident leads to on-the-job injury and deaths

High voltage lines pose a significant risk for on-the-job injury to industrial and construction workers, even with highly trained individuals. Recent accidents in California involving electrical hazards have resulted in a full investigation by Cal/OSHA and, ultimately, citations and fines for two companies. Cal/OSHA typically investigates accidents that result in on-the-job injury or fatalities. 

Legal assistance for public servants after on-the-job injury

Every single day, California police officers and firefighters face a certain risk for an on-the-job injury as they fulfill their job duties. It is particularly important for these public servants to understand their rights regarding workers' compensation in case of a work accident. When an on-the-job injury or death occurs, there are benefits available, designated to help cover the costs of medical bills, lost wages and other expenses. 

Company responsible for on-the-job injury and death of workers

A California paint company has recently settled a lawsuit regarding an on-the-job injury of one worker and the death of another. The company came under scrutiny regarding the way that harmful chemicals were handled, which has been declared illegal and dangerous for workers. As a result of this illegal action, one worker suffered from an on-the-job injury after fumes exposure and one passed away from chemical inhalation. 

Television sets have new rules to prevent on-the-job injury

Since California is the heart of the film and television industry, new laws proposed for reporting on-the-job injury will have a definitive impact. New standards have been set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in order to improve the way that work accidents are reported after they occur on set. In the past, an on-the-job injury was not always reported as it should have been. 

Are you eligible for disability after an on-the-job injury?

After an on-the-job injury, it is possible that a California worker may be unable to return to his or her normal job duties. When a person is unable to work because of circumstances beyond his or her control, it is possible that disability benefits could be granted. If you are suffering both physically and financially after an on-the-job injury, you could have certain options for financial assistance through workers' compensation benefits. 

What death benefits are available through workers' compensation?

When a California worker dies as a result of a work accident, certain death benefits are available through workers' compensation insurance. The family of the deceased can take certain steps to claim what is rightfully theirs, but it may be useful to have assistance when filing a claim. Under California law, workers' compensation death benefits should be granted to anyone who dies as the result of a work injury or illness contracted because of work conditions.
