Workplace injuries send 3 to hospital after roadside crash

Road work is a constant occurrence in California. While drivers might lament that and complain about how it snarls traffic, few will dispute its necessity and how these workers are placed in danger just by the sheer nature and location of their job. Some drivers who encounter workers on the side of the road will simply ignore them and drive as fast as they normally do. Others might be distracted. This can cause a crash with injuries and death.

Can workers' compensation cover chiropractic treatments?

When a California worker is injured on the job, there are certain treatment options they want to have and believe will be effective.

Construction worker killed by falling beam

In California, the public might not think about the dangers that were part of the creation and completion of a construction project, but with every job there is a risk that workers will be injured or there will be worker death. The workers themselves understand what they face even if they take all the necessary precautions to maintain safety. Still, no one is expecting to leave for work and die in a fatal construction accident. After the incident, it is vital for the worker's family to understand their rights to seek compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit.

Dying firefighter seeks workers' compensation benefits

California first responders face danger every single day. This is especially true for firefighters. That is part of the job. While workplace injuries might be expected in many circumstances, there is also a danger of occupational disease from long-term exposure to smoke, fumes and chemicals. Workers' compensation benefits are meant to help those who are injured or become ill from the job. However, there are glaring holes in the system and these can prevent workers from getting their workers' compensation benefits. Having legal help in such a situation is essential to try and get an approval.

Beware of an unprotected trench, aka an early grave

Do you know that you can refuse to enter an unprotected trench? No construction worker in California has to put his or her life on the line for an employer who just wants to save time and money. In many cases, these are the reasons for disregarding safety regulations and not providing qualified supervision on construction sites. However, no amount of saved money or time can justify the loss of lives.

Work-related accident kills worker on construction project

Construction work is a dangerous occupation regardless of the project. Workers are on scaffolds, working with large tools, operating near heavy machinery, and are placed in some level of jeopardy on every project. On some level, workers and their families are keenly aware of the risks they face of being in an accident, suffering serious injuries and even losing their lives. When it happens, however, it is still a shock. After the loss of a loved one in a construction accident, a lawsuit is often the only strategy available to receive adequate compensation.
