Workers' Compensation Archives

Fatal on-the-job injuries lead to charges

Employers are required to do everything reasonably in their power to ensure the safety of their employees. A disregard for the safety of employees may lead to on\-the\-job injuries, which may then result in workers' compensation claims. When California employers and/or managers disregard safety regulations, the risk of an accident leading to fatal injuries increases. 

Appropriate safety equipment can prevent most on-the-job injuries

Workers in all sectors in California have to deal with some occupational hazards. Although the various industries might have inherent dangers, some general risks are present in most work environments. Safety authorities say many on\-the\-job injuries occur due to the lack of safety equipment. Employees may not realize that they can insist on being provided with the necessary protection to keep them safe.

California deputy suffers on-the-job injuries in car accident

While most people are thankful for the work done by law enforcement officers, few may actually spend much time thinking of the risks involved in fulfilling their daily duties. Theoretically anybody can suffer on-the-job injuries, but certain occupations are considered more dangerous than others. One group of high risk workers is law enforcement officers. A recent accident in California highlights the dangers involved for officers on the job.

Workers' compensation: Common mistakes employers make

In order to ensure a healthy thriving business, Californian business owners needs to keep their fingers on the pulse of their companies and make sure every aspect is taken care of. This is often not an easy task, and sometimes mistakes are made. Such mistakes may not only negatively impact on the business but also on employees. One important aspect business owners often find daunting is handling workers' compensation.

Five main reasons for workers compensation claims

Workplace injuries are much more common than one may think. In fact, statistics indicate that approximately 4 out of every 100 full-time employees may suffer a workplace injury in any given year, with the healthcare and construction industries having the highest propensity for workplace injuries. This is why California companies are legally required to have workers' compensation insurance.

Slip or trip-and-falls can cause serious on-the-job injuries

Many people in California have suffered severe injuries in slip or trip-and-fall accidents while moving about unsafe parking lots or while they are out shopping. However, such incidents are also the cause of many on\-the\-job injuries and could occur in any industry. Injury risks can be avoided by proper housekeeping during which spills are immediately mopped up, and work areas are free of debris.

Was your workers' compensation claim denied?

An on-the-job injury is the last thing you need. Days off work mean days without pay. If you depend on every dollar of your paycheck, you know you can't afford to take time off to recover from a workplace accident. On top of losing hourly pay, you may also have to deal with medical bills and other costs associated with your injuries. This can add up to financial disaster for your family.

CTS may lead to workers' compensation claims

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is often seen as an unsubstantiated threat, but it is more real than many believe. A recent study has indicated that between 3 and 6 percent of Americans may be affected by CTS. However, those numbers likely increase when it comes to office workers. Californian companies, especially technology companies, should not be surprised by workers' compensation claims resulting from carpel tunnel syndrome.

OSHA publishes the year's most common safety violations

Each year, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration publishes a list of the 10 most frequently violated safety rules in workplaces across the country. The purpose of this list is to remind workers and employers of the dangers of violating these standards, with the hope that the number of injuries will decrease.
