New workers' compensation law to address workplace violence

Workplace accidents occur on a regular basis in California, some causing severe injuries to employees. Fortunately, state law requires employers to carry workers' compensation insurance which helps to ensure medical treatment and financial coverage for any injured employees. Even though workers' compensation is a system established for the protection of injured workers, it is often a difficult system to navigate.

Injuries from construction workers' accidents can be expensive

Safety regulations and standards are ignored or disregarded on California job sites every day. When a workers' safety is at risk, it can result in debilitating and fatal injuries. Construction workers' accidents can result in numerous expensive medical bills and potential loss of income while healing occurs. Employers are mandated to provide workers' compensation insurance for employees that offers financial relief in the event of an accident. Lawyers who focus their practices on employment law may determine that some injured workers have grounds to pursue compensation outside of workers' compensation in civil court.
