Construction workers' accidents can be eligible for compensation

In California and all other states, workers' compensation exists as an insurance to cover lost wages and medical bills for those injured on the job, and it even includes death benefits regarding fatal accidents. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is a federal regulatory agency that sets and enforces standards for safe work environments. Even with OSHA's efforts, many job sites still contain unacceptable risks and dangers for employees. Despite safety measures and enforcement actions, construction workers' accidents still occur. Recently, a father of three young children died on a construction site due to a fall.

We can help you obtain a fair settlement after a work accident

If you have been injured at work, you know how complicated and overwhelming it can be to deal with the medical bills, lost wages and other financial losses that you have endured. Getting a fair settlement for your accident seems like an impossible task, and it may take a concentrated effort from a legal professional to secure your rightful compensation. It is important to have a lawyer on your side from the very beginning of the workers' compensation process.

Protecting workers' rights in the health care industry

Health care workers are less likely to be injured in the workplace thanks to some new measures passed by a state safety board. The California Division of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently approved measures that would require more training and enforce violence prevention protocols. These new rules are intended to protect workers' rights and make it less likely that people who work in this industry will be hit, kicked, bitten or grabbed.
