What should you do if you are injured on the job?

California workers who are injured on the job have certain rights that should be protected. While every worker is granted certain entitlements, it is still difficult to know how to proceed if you are injured on the job. Fortunately, every worker has the right to seek legal assistance in order to get a full understanding of available legal options and, if warranted, proceed with a claim.

Health care employees at risk for workplace injuries

California readers know that health care workers are often exposed to hazardous conditions. Despite the inherent risks of the profession, some health care employers fail to protect their workers as much as they should. Just recently, a hospital was cited for certain hazards that placed employees at risk for workplace injuries.

California theme park employee injured while working

The California theme park Great America Park has been fined by the California Division of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for unsafe practices that led to the injury of a park mechanic. The fine of $70,200 was issued after a man was seriously injured while working. He was hit by a train in a restricted area. Working as a mechanic on a ride, he was trying to retrieve a phone that had fallen in a restricted area.

Filing a claim for rightful benefits after a work injury

It is frustrating to suffer an injury at work, especially when it prevents you from working and earning your full pay check. While there are legal options available to injured California workers, the system can be complex and it is not always easy to get the benefits that you deserve. For that reason, it is important to have the help of a lawyer as soon as possible after a work injury in order to properly complete the claim and navigate a possible denial. 

Workplace injuries place health care employees at risk of illness

Cal/OSHA has fined Kaiser Foundation Hospitals for placing workers at risk for infectious diseases. The fine of $149,900 came after three custodial employees were stuck by needles that were in a biohazard box. These workers were placed at risk for workplace injuries because the box was overflowing, and the lid could not be properly secured. Consequently, the three employees were given medicine as a precautionary measure. 

Preventing workplace injuries stemming from workplace violence

California has recently become the first state to take steps to protect health care workers from the risk of violence in the workplace. Statistics indicate that the health care industry has an unusually high number of violence-related incidents, more than any field in the private sector. Lawmakers hope that new changes will protect these workers from workplace injuries stemming from violent actions.
