Work accident occurs at Tesla plant during Cal/OSHA investigation

Businesses in California are responsible for the safety of their workers. When there is a work accident, it is likely that the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration will investigate. For companies that are already under scrutiny for past issues, workplace injuries take on greater relevance. Those who have been injured on the job should be aware of how OSHA examines the incident, what the basis for a legal filing is and seek assistance from an attorney to attempt to make certain that they receive all the benefits and compensation they are entitled to.

Maintenance worker dies in fatal work-related accident

When there are potholes in the street, they must be repaired. If there is a streetlight that needs repair and replacement, that too must be handled. Workers who do these jobs might appear to be part of the landscape and passersby do not often realize how risky it is, but accidents happen and maintenance can be one of the most understated high risk occupations for people to do. When there is an accident, it can lead to injuries and death. Those who have been injured will have the right to workers' compensation. Those who have lost a loved one in a fatal work-related accident should know they may have the right to seek compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit.

Denied workers' compensation and grounds for reconsideration

Since workers' compensation can be such a necessity for California workers who have suffered a workplace injury, a denied claim can lead to great uncertainty for the future. People who have had their workers' compensation claims denied often do not realize that they can take steps to try and get a reconsideration of the decision from the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board. This is even true after a judge has decided the case and denied the claim. People who are confronted with this problem should be aware of their rights to seek reconsideration and what the grounds are for doing so.

Who puts their lives on the line every day? Linemen

Every household and business in California relies on a constant supply of electricity for the smooth running of his or her lives and businesses. However, not many of those people stop to spare a thought for you and your co-linemen who do one of the most hazardous jobs in the country. You risk your lives every day to ensure uninterrupted utilities.

Understanding a Disability Evaluation Unit in workers' comp

In many instances, when California workers are injured on the job and are seeking workers' compensation benefits, it is not as simple as applying for the benefits and then receiving the benefits. This is especially true if it might be a permanent disability. Certain factors that a worker might not be aware of will come into play. When dealing with an injury or illness from employment and being unable to work, these issues must be considered. One is the Disability Evaluation Unit.

The hazards paramedics face to save the lives of others

The California workers' compensation program provides comfort to employees in all industries who know they can claim medical expenses and lost wages in the event of a workplace accident. However, for workers in some high-risk occupations, this financial support is critical. These dangerous occupations include paramedics and other EMT workers who never know where the next ambulance trip will take them.
