Large and new construction projects require a significant amount of skilled workers. Some projects, such as the new High-Speed Rail in California, often require unusual and large-scale work. Despite best efforts to prevent them, construction workers' accidents are unfortunately bound to occur. Two workers recently suffered injuries while working on the rail project.

Construction workers' accidents: 2 injured, 1 dead

There is no denying the risk that may be present on a construction site in California. The large equipment, heavy supplies, large vehicles and an unstable environment can result in harm to anyone on a work site.

Officiers injured in mass shooting denied workers' compensation

The recent mass shooting at a country music festival in another state shocked and terrified many throughout the country. Tragically, many lives were lost and hundreds of innocent attendees were injured as they tried to escape the massacre. Approximately 40 off-duty southern California law enforcement officers were attending the concert when the shooting broke out. Reportedly, four were injured while using their skills to assist wounded attendees. There has been recent outrage when reports circulated that the officers would be denied California workers' compensation for injuries suffered during the out-of-state shooting.
