Workers' compensation after a California workplace accident

Most employers in California strive to ensure the safety of workers. However, regardless of the number of safety precautions in place, workplace accidents still occur. While many workers are entitled to workers' compensation, the path to compensation is complicated, filled with paperwork and deadlines with which a person unfamiliar with the process may struggle.

Workers' compensation possible following fatal accident

The average person in California likely faces a variety of different dangers as he or she goes about everyday life. In some cases, dangers are well-known, allowing a person to take proper precautions. In others, a person may have felt relatively safe when an accident occurred. Regardless, a person injured in a workplace accident may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. These benefits typically extend to dependent family members in the event of a fatality.

Man hospitalized as a result of serious workplace injuries

When most people in California think of dangerous occupations, they likely think of police officers and fire fighters who put their lives at risk every day. However, industrial employees who work with large pieces of machinery are similarly at risk for workplace injuries. For example, one out-of-state man recently suffered serious injuries while using machinery.

OSHA alleges breach of safety standards after scaffold accident

In California and across the United States, falls are a leading cause of death in construction work. In April 2015, at a Massachusetts work site, three roofers fell two stories, requiring hospital treatment for broken bones, spinal injuries and a punctured lung. According to inspectors, the fall was the result of using a wooden plank that could not support the workers' weight. The invoice for the plank was marked "not for scaffold use."

Man dies as a result of workplace injuries

Most people in California are aware that workplaces can be dangerous. Many dangers may be hidden and unexpected, while others are more obvious. While most employers work hard to safeguard workers from known dangers, accidents can still occur. For example, one man was recently killed as a result of workplace injuries he suffered in an accident.
