Accident on the job with car injures motorcycle cop

While workplace accidents can happen at any kind of job in California, they are generally considered to result from items falling, people being hurt during physical jobs and office-related issues, like carpal tunnel. People who are out on the road in one capacity or another are also in their "workplace," despite that workplace not being in a set location. When there is an accident in that venue, these people also have the right to be compensated for the medical costs, lost wages and more. It is especially important to remember this when the injury occurs to a law enforcement officer or a first responder, as the requirements of the job puts them in jeopardy.

Vehicle slips off flatbed and causes fatal work-related accident

California residents who work in a variety of occupations can be injured in a work-related accident. Some jobs are more dangerous than others and leave workers prone to being injured and even dying in a fatal accident. For those who work on roadways and cart vehicles, there is a chance of the death of a worker in the course of employment. Those who have suffered the loss of a loved one in such an accident should be cognizant of the long-term issues they will face and consider a legal filing to be compensated.

Can your own doctor treat you under workers' compensation law?

When a worker in California is injured on the job and needs medical treatment as part of the workers' compensation benefits process, a question that is often asked is whether it is possible to use a personal physician for the treatment or not. This is also known as taking steps to "predesignate."

What is rhabdo and how can firefighters recognize the symptoms?

Are you a firefighter in California? Do you know about your risk to suffer a dangerous occupational illness called rhabdomyolysis — shortened to rhabdo? It is a condition that threatens those fighting fires in burning buildings as well as forest fires. The intense physical effort in firefighting can damage muscles, and rhabdo breaks down those injured muscles. The process releases electrolytes and proteins into the firefighter's blood, which can cause damage to the kidneys and heart. Rhabdo can cause death, or it could lead to permanent disability.

Can you get workers' compensation for a psychiatric injury?

When California residents hear the phrase "injured on the job," they might automatically think that to get workers' compensation benefits it must be something physical. That can include broken bones, cuts, bruises, back injuries and worse. However, people can suffer injuries that are more difficult to discern. Psychiatric injuries can be just as severe as physical injuries and lead to the worker being unable to fulfill his or her duties. Getting workers' compensation benefits is possible with psychiatric injuries if the requirements under state law are met.
