Even with that, workplace injuries can come as a surprise and leave officers wondering how to make ends meet and pay medical expenses in the aftermath. Although it is generally expected that those who work in law enforcement, as firefighters or as first responders will get workers' compensation benefits when they are hurt, it is still important to ensure the claim is approved and the maximum benefits are received.

Don't let a workers' compensation denial ruin your recovery

If you suffered an on-the-job injury, you already know just how difficult recovery can be. It is hard to focus on getting better when you have so many other worries on your plate. You may have missed work or are still out of commission, which means that you lost an important source of income. Medical bills related to your injury only complicate the situation. With all of this on your mind, a workers' compensation denial can feel devastating.

Construction accident leads to worker death and several injured

Construction projects are prevalent throughout California. This could be for commercial purposes, to build residential structures or to maintain and improve existing buildings and areas. The work construction employees do is dangerous, but rewarding. They are generally well-compensated and most take pride in seeing their toil come to a definable and clear result with the project completed according to specifications. Still, there are dangers with construction work. An accident can cause injuries and death. Workers who have been hurt should understand the steps to get workers' compensation. Families who have suffered the loss of a loved one should be aware of how to recover compensation for the fatality.
