Workers' Compensation Archives

Not all work injuries come from major accidents

When you think of work injuries, what comes to mind? Many think of major accidents that often cause devastating injuries. However, not all work injuries are the result of big events. In fact, there are those that happen due to completing the same tasks repeatedly.

You can fight back after workers' compensation retaliation

You know that California workers have the right to certain benefits if they suffer injury in a workplace accident or because of occupational illnesses. However, employers may not always respect these rights, and some injured workers may lose their jobs after filing for workers' compensation benefits.

Danger may be lurking near your cubicle

Even if you don't report for work each day on a construction site, at the top of a high scaffold on the outside of a 20-story building or at the scene of a four-alarm fire, it doesn't mean you are free from all safety risks just because you work in an office. In fact, there may be several potentially serious dangers in your vicinity at any given time, and if one catches you by surprise, an otherwise average workday may end with you in the hospital.

Workplace eye injuries are preventable

As a child, you may have played a game with friends that involved blindfolding one person who then chased the others around. When it was your turn to wear the blindfold, you may have felt the frustration of being unable to see as your friends laughed and teased you. Despite the fun of the game, you probably felt relieved to remove the blindfold and see the faces of your friends in the light.

Denied workers' comp benefits? It's not the end of the road

Did you apply for workers' compensation benefits after an accident at work or the onset of an illness related to your occupation? As a California employee, you have the right to certain benefits in case you are ever injured. However, it is not always an easy process to actually get these benefits, even when you have a valid claim. 

Exposure to toxic substances at work can expose you to illness

Any California worker could face exposure to toxic substances in the workplace, but there are some who may be at a higher risk for this type of danger. Workers in certain industries would be wise to know their rights regarding workers' compensation benefits in the event that they become ill or injured due to toxic exposure. 

Workers' comp may cover your work-related spinal cord injury

Work-related spinal cord injuries affect many California residents every year. Those whose injuries are minor in nature may only need pain medication and rest in order to recover. Those with moderate to severe injuries, though, may require medical care that is rather extensive or, if disability results, life-long care. If you are among those who have suffered such injuries, workers' compensation benefits may be available to you.

Barista injuries go beyond just burns

Coffee has become a staple of many people's daily routine. Whether they enjoy a single cup in the morning or need several throughout the day, they often have their specific flavors, brews and other details that make up their perfect cups. Though having their coffee can put a spring in many individuals' steps, as someone who works behind the bar making these various drinks, you may find yourself facing risks for injuries.
