Work accident on rail project injures two construction workers

Any type of construction work in California and across the country can be dangerous for the workers. This is true whether it is a project overseen in the private sector or the public sector. A work accident does not discriminate based on who is paying for it and what it is for. Those who are injured in an accident on the job should know that they are entitled to receive workers' compensation, have their medical treatment paid for and get other benefits. If there is a problem with getting these benefits, it is essential to understand the importance of having legal help after workplace injuries.

Workers' compensation and temporary disability's timeframe

California workers who are injured on the job will count on workers' compensation benefits to see them through their recovery. For those whose injuries are not permanent, temporary disability (TD) benefits provide payments for lost wages while the person is recovering. TD benefits under workers' compensation were covered in a previous post. A concern that many people who are getting TD benefits have is when they will begin and end. Many injuries that are incurred due to the work a person does can vary in when they will be sufficiently resolved to get back to work. The timeline of when the benefits begin and end is vital.

Firefighters' lives typically threatened by much more than flames

Firefighters in California face some of the most hazardous occupational challenges. If this is your line of work, you might be interested in the findings of researchers in a study that was done to determine the impact firefighting has on the heart. The result of the research underscores the fact that while you work to save the lives of others, you may be putting your own life on the line.

Active systems required to avoid a construction accident

In construction work, workers are frequently required to be stationed at substantial heights to complete projects according to the project's specifications. This can place the worker at risk for a fall which, in turn, can lead to injuries or death. A recent post examined passive systems. This post will focus on common active systems that should be in place for fall protection.

Work-related accident injures police officer on bicycle

Law enforcement officers in San Jose and throughout California are fully aware of the dangers they face when they head out on the job. Because they are easily identifiable and willingly place themselves in harm's way, these brave officers can be injured and even killed as they go about their duties. With this type of job and other high risk occupations, injuries and the loss of a loved one can negatively affect a family in many ways. While workers' compensation will almost assuredly be available in these instances, there could also be the foundation for a lawsuit to recover compensation in other ways. One example of such a case was recently in the news.
