California man needs airlifted after work injury

For some workers, their daily jobs may put them at risk for injury or even much worse. Many rely on their employers to do the right thing and cover their expenses if they are the victim of a work injury. For one California worker, his work injury was severe enough to require being airlifted to a medical center for treatment. In most situations like this, workers' compensation benefits become appropriate.

NFL players fight for California work injury compensation

Anyone who has ever watched professional football can see how easily that injuries can occur. However, the state of California decided that players in the National Football League were not legally allowed to seek work injury compensation for any injuries they received playing football. Former players with the NFL have since decided to sue so they can hopefully garner workers' compensation rights in California.

California worker' compensation issues can be tricky

When a California worker is injured or killed while on the job, state workers' compensation benefits are in place to assist them or their families. In many cases, an employee's entitlement to workers' compensation is clear-cut, and benefits may be received with minimal paperwork and within a relatively fast timeframe. However, there are other instances in which the matter can be very complicated, and where eligibility for these benefits can be called into question.
