Concern over number of workers' injuries after fall accidents

Due to the high number of fall accidents that occur in California workplaces annually, regulators and leaders of the various industries are persistent in their quest to develop ways to reduce fall injuries and fatalities. Although there are very strict safety regulations prescribed by regulators such as the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration, a culture of substandard safety involving improper practices across different industries persists. Employees have the right to be provided with safe workplace surroundings to reduce the likelihood of workers' injuries.

Company owners in California who fail to provide safe working environments for their workers and neglect to provide sufficient safety training may indirectly cause workplace accidents. By abiding by the strict safety regulations prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, they may be able to avoid a workplace injury. Unfortunately, instances do occur where safety regulations are disregarded, and severe injuries may be the result.

Workplace accidents can bring about severe financial stress

California workers in the construction and industrial industries, along with those who work in factories, typically face dangerous working conditions every day. Whether they work with hazardous and toxic materials, heavy machinery or mechanized equipment, the likelihood of workplace accidents is real at all times. In addition, demanding tasks and constant heavy-lifting can also result in injuries that may have long-term adverse effects.

How do I know whether I have a viable workplace injury claim?

California workers in most industries are constantly exposed to dangerous conditions at their workplaces. It is only natural for them to be concerned about the potential financial implications of being absent from work for extended periods due to a workplace injury. However, most workers are covered by the workers’ compensation insurance fund, and viable claims for benefits may provide financial aid in the event of an injury on the job.
