Fatal work-related accident from tire explosion kills man, 37

Workers in California who are tasked with operating heavy machinery, being around large vehicles, handling complex tools, and completing difficult tasks will put themselves in harm's way simply due to the nature of the job. Even when all the necessary precautions are taken, there can still be work accidents in high risk occupations. Unlike many jobs where a work accident does not run a significant risk of severe injuries, those who work in occupations with major risk can suffer catastrophic injuries and death.

Workers' compensation and disputes over a medical assessment

California workers who are injured on the job and seek workers' compensation benefits may forgo paying for a legal professional to help with their case, as is their prerogative. However, many people who are facing workers' compensation concerns may end up regretting not having legal assistance, especially when there is a dispute about the injury or occupational illness and the worker is not sure as to what the alternatives are. Understanding how to handle a disagreement with a doctor's assessment and what the claimant says he or she can do is a key part of a case.

Machine activating with man inside results in worker death

Any job in California can be dangerous, but people who work with heavy machinery are at significant risk of being in a fatal work-related accident. Although they and their families know the danger, it is still a shock to receive that call saying that there was the loss of a loved one in an incident on the job. There are many considerations after this type of accident. People who have been impacted by such a tragic occurrence must remember their rights to be compensated for all they have lost. A law firm that is experienced in assisting people after work-related accidents and death can be critical when considering a legal filing.

Workers' Compensation vouchers and returning to work

When California workers are injured and have a permanent partial disability, they are frequently concerned about how the Workers' Compensation program will provide for them. Since those who have permanent partial disabilities can often do certain jobs but not others, there are times when they cannot get back to their old job. This is where vouchers are useful. Vouchers are part of supplemental job displacement benefits.
