Workplace injuries prove fatal for worker, another hospitalized

In too many instances, work-related accidents can happen too suddenly for employees to protect themselves. Unexpected events could trigger a serious incident that leaves workers with serious or even fatal workplace injuries. Though learning from such events is important, it may seem too late for injured California workers or their families.

Roadway accidents can present workers' compensation need

Whether people are on the road for work or travel, any roadway can be a dangerous place. California residents and those elsewhere who work on roadways due to jobs in construction, accident cleanup or other industries often face safety risks due to drivers passing through the area. Unfortunately, many passing drivers do not slow down or take other precautions in such areas, and those on the job could end up in need of workers' compensation.

Broken limbs may warrant workers' compensation

Often, California residents and those elsewhere simply accept the hazards of their jobs. After all, they need their employment, and if they are careful and abide by the safety guidelines, they will likely avoid any serious accidents and injuries. Of course, not all aspects of a job can be controlled, and some individuals may need workers' compensation after a work-related accident.

Risk of workplace injuries highest in these industries

In California and across the country, there were more than 5,000 fatalities as a result of on-the-job accidents in 2017. The risk of workplace injuries is higher with certain jobs than others. Of course, it is possible to suffer injury in any line of work, which is why employers should always put safety first and fulfill their obligation to provide proper training and safety equipment as needed.

Do employees have to pay for workers' compensation insurance?

Like with most types of financial assistance, it can be difficult to understand the compensation available for California workers who suffer injuries on the job. Workers' compensation is certainly a useful benefit to those who do suffer workplace injuries, but it can be complicated to understand how workers' comp works and how to obtain it. Gaining the right information before a work-related accident may be wise.

Employers have responsibilities for workers' compensation claims

Accidents in the workplace could happen in any industry at any time. Even when employers and workers take precautions to lessen the likelihood of injury-causing incidents, they still happen. As a result, workers' compensation may be needed for some individuals in California.

California family may need workers' compensation after fatality

Any person's line of work could put him or her at risk for injuries. In some cases, those injuries can be severe when an accident takes place on the job, especially when machinery or equipment is involved. Unfortunately, not everyone survives work-related injuries, and families can be left struggling. In some cases, workers' compensation could help.

Can sick employees seek benefits through workers' compensation?

California employees have the right to seek benefits and support in the event that they experience some type of accident in the workplace. They can also pursue workers' compensation benefits if they become ill as a result of toxic exposure or contagions in the workplace. This is a prominent concern in the midst of the Coronavirus outbreak, especially for those who work in the health care industry. 

Workplace injuries can result when fires break out

Most people go into their places of employment intending to have a normal day. They may not expect that a serious incident can put their safety and the safety of their co-workers at risk. Of course, many events could take place on the job that lead to workplace injuries.

Do travel-related injuries qualify for workers' compensation?

When people think about being injured at work, they often think of accidents that take place inside their office, at a construction site or in other work areas. However, it is also possible for California workers to suffer injuries on the job when they are not necessarily at their normal work location. For example, if a person is involved in an accident while conducting work-related travel, workers' compensation may still apply.
