Do workplace injuries qualify you for workers' comp benefits?

Work accidents happen all the time, but many workers do not seek benefits for fear of retaliation from an employer, uncertainty about the claims process or simply a lack of understanding of their rights. As a result, there are employees suffering from workplace injuries who never get the support and care that they need. Every California worker, regardless of the severity of the injury or his or her employment position, has the right to a full and fair recovery.

We can help if a work injury exacerbates a pre-existing condition

There are many reasons why an employer may dispute a workers' compensation claim. One of the most common tactics used is claiming that a valid work injury is actually a pre-existing condition. Contrary to what many California workers know, many pre-existing conditions are actually covered by workers' compensation benefits in some cases. 

Common sources of on-the-job injury for construction workers

California construction workers are exposed to various types of risks every time they report to a job site. Although they are employed in an inherently dangerous line of work, that does not mean that they are precluded from a work environment that is as safe as possible. Proper safety equipment and training should be provided in order to prevent on-the-job injury for construction workers.

Protection against heat-realted workplace injuries

As spring is full force in California, temperatures continue to rise, and outdoor workers are again at risk of suffering the negative impacts that heat can have on physical safety. At this time of year, it is up to employers to educate workers on how to stay safe while working in the heat and prevent heat-related workplace injuries. With safety training and awareness, workers can avoid certain illnesses and physical harm.

Are Kylie Jenner's factory workers at risk of workplace injuries?

Kylie Jenner, the reality television star and makeup entrepreneur, has recently established a factory in California to produce her widely popular lip makeup kits. The star was lauded upon the opening of the factory for providing much needed jobs to workers, but recent reports indicate that the conditions may not be safe. In fact, people employed in the facility may be at increased risk of workplace injuries.

Workers' compensation death benefits for grieving families

When a work accident claims the life of a loved one, those left behind will likely face financial strain in addition to emotional pain and suffering. After a heartbreaking and tragic loss, the last thing that families want to deal with is a complicated legal process, but we can help. Workers' compensation allows families to seek death benefits, and we can help you seek the recovery you need.

Construction workers face increased risk of on-the-job injury

Construction sites are workplaces that are fraught with risk of injury and even death. Those who are employed in this industry know that they must be particularly vigilant against the risk of on-the-job injury and death. When a California construction worker is injured, he or she has the right to know how to seek rightful benefits through workers' compensation.
