Repetitive stress injuries are valid workplace injuries

Typing, bagging groceries and other repetitive motions can, over time, lead to damage that is known as repetitive stress injury. These injuries are legitimate workplace injuries, even if the damage is not visible. Repetitive stress injuries can be quite painful, possibly compromising a person's ability to work. Despite the subtle nature of these injuries, they may be valid grounds for a workers' compensation claim. 

Construction workers face risk of on-the-job injury

Two California construction companies have been fined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for unsafe conditions on a job site. The companies are under scrutiny for exposing their workers to the risk of cave-ins on a certain project that is underway in the Bay Area. Work on the site was halted until the dangerous risk of on-the-job injury was addressed and corrected.

Did insurance deny your claim after suffering a work injury?

Successfully obtaining rightful compensation after a work accident can be a frustrating and lengthy process. Many claims are initially denied, necessitating an appeal. Appeals are accompanied by more paperwork, more waiting and quite often, more frustration. If your workers' compensation claim was denied because your work injury was related to a pre-existing condition, it is important to know your rights.

Why you need a lawyer after suffering an on-the-job injury

Employers and construction site managers have the important responsibility to promote the safety and well-being of every worker. Working in the construction industry comes with certain hazards, but each employee should be given proper training and the gear or tools necessary to do his or her job safely. When an on-the-job injury does happen, a California worker should be completely informed of his or her rights regarding compensation and medical care.

Construction workers in California have the right to safe workplace environments. This puts an enormous responsibility on the shoulders of construction company owners because of the diverse activities that take place on construction sites. The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health Administration provide safety regulations for every aspect of construction, and compliance may protect workers from being killed or injured on the job.

Injured on the job? Workplace hazards may be to blame.

California workers know that job safety is tantamount to the health and well-being of all workers. When workers are not properly trained or when employers do not take steps to enact safety measures, the risk of workplace injuries increases. Fortunately, those who are injured on the job have the right to seek compensation for their medical expenses and lost wages. 

Seeking deserved financial support after suffering a work injury

Every year, many Americans must deal with the financial and physical repercussions of a workplace accident or injuries from repetitive stress. This damage can result in ongoing pain, medical bills, lost wages from missed work and more. When a work injury has negative and long-term implications for your life, you need to know what legal options are available.
