Workers' compensation: What kind of benefits can I receive?

A serious workplace injury is not an easy situation for the average California resident to manage. For one thing, the worker will be suffering from the pain and discomfort of the injury and he or she will be struggling to get better, get appropriate medical care and to gather enough funds to pay for the medical care. Secondly, the worker might not be able to continue working while injured, and this will significantly eradicate his or her income levels at a time when he or she needs a healthy income the most.

56-year-old California construction worker dies in accident

No two jobs in California are the same. Each comes with unique responsibilities, but more importantly, each comes with its own share of risks. Even an office job can be dangerous in some respects, but few jobs compare to the perils associated with working at a construction site. There are too many variables, too many climbs up onto ladders and scaffolding and too many power tools and pieces of heavy machinery for a hard hat-wearing worker to ever be completely safe from the threat of a fatal accident.
