Workers' Compensation Archives

Workers' compensation claim may follow death in construction zone

Road construction workers nationwide, including in California, frequently put their lives on the line. Not only are they exposed to the negligence of distracted drivers who travel through construction zones, but also the heavy equipment that is used on site. It is not uncommon for these workers to fall victims to either the one hazard or the other, typically resulting in workers' compensation claims.

Don't Wait Too Long To Start Your Claim

If you've been injured on the job in California, you have a right to workers' compensation benefits to help you pay for the cost of recovery, lost wages or disability. But if you wait too long to pursue a claim, you may end up missing out on this essential benefit that can be crucial for getting your life back on track.

Workers' compensation available for victims of work accidents

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health recently reported that it had completed the investigation into the tragic accident that killed one person and caused serious injuries to another during the cleaning up after the February mudslide in Santa Cruz County. Fortunately, the injured victim and the family of the deceased worker did not have to wait for the conclusion of the investigation before claiming workers' compensation benefits. They were entitled to pursue financial assistance immediately after the workplace accident.

Workers' compensation claim may follow big rig driver's death

Big rig drivers in California face multiple workplace hazards while navigating the state's busy freeways. Along with the crash hazards that they have to deal with, unattainable or unrealistic deadlines imposed by many employers force truckers to sacrifice rest time to meet the required standards. Sadly, fatigue is often the result, making them even more vulnerable while driving. An unexplained crash recently claimed the life of a truck driver whose family will likely rely on workers' compensation benefits to assist with the unanticipated expenses.
