Construction workers often face workplace injuries

Most California employees who work in construction are aware that it can be a dangerous industry. Workplace injuries are common due to any number of factors, such as potentially unstable conditions and close proximity to heavy machinery. A worker in another state was injured after the trench he was working in collapsed.

Serious workplace injuries lead to fatalities for 4 employees

When California workers are fatally injured on the job, their families may face an unexpected financial burden in addition to the emotional toil they will likely experience. Many in this situation may not know where to turn. Luckily, those who have lost family members due to workplace injuries may be able to file workers' compensation claims on behalf of their deceased loved ones to help deal with the aftermath of the accident. Several families in another state may consider filing after four men lost their lives in an industrial accident.

As a matter of law in California, all employers are required to carry workers' compensation insurance, which is supposed injured workers recover lost wages and other benefits to make ends meet while they are unable to work.

Former pro wrestlers bring suit for prior injuries

Fans of professional wrestling may not question whether (or how much) the blows or falls wrestlers sustain may actually hurt. After all, the action inside (and sometimes outside) the ring is supposed to be pure entertainment. However, like all action stunts, injuries may occur.

How prior injuries may affect your work comp claim

As we have noted in prior posts, workers’ compensation is supposed to help injured workers meet their financial obligations while they recover from their injuries and cannot work. The benefits stemming from these claims are based on a formula that assigns a particular monetary amount for each type of injury.

DOL reporting program provides good lessons

Indeed, the main goal of California's workers' compensation code is to ensure that injured workers are able to meet their financial obligations while they are unable to work due to work related injuries. However, an important part of the work comp industry  is preventing accidents.
