Injured worker claim can result from excavator accident

Heavy machinery is necessary for many types of jobs. This type of equipment is most common at construction and industrial sites in California. However, workers need to be careful when working with heavy machinery, since an accident can result in serious injuries or even death in worst case scenarios. Therefore, employers should ensure that proper safety procedures are followed to prevent workplace injuries that could result in an injured worker claim.

Construction company may need employer defense after accident

Companies should always adhere to safety standards at construction sites. Even the smallest oversight in compliance with work safety rules at a construction site can result in disastrous consequences in California. Not only can this cause physical injury or even death for a worker, but also it can result in legal problems for an employer, which may require an employer defense strategy.

Employers can be proactive in stopping employee fraud

The cost of workers' compensation insurance has been an increasingly prevalent concern for many employers as of late. Due to rising premiums, employers in California are looking to do whatever they can to control costs. This includes employers being more vigilant when it comes to detecting employee fraud.

An employer can be seriously distraught when a fatal accident happens at the workplace. Not only can this be emotionally challenging, it can also result in significant financial damage to a company in California. However, the financial damage can be further exacerbated when safety citations are issued. This type of situation will cause a need for a strong employer defense strategy to address the safety citations.

Employer defense may be needed following OSHA investigation

Safety in the workplace is essential no matter what industry. However, it can be particularly important in the construction industry in California since there are significantly more dangers of injury compared to many other types of work environments. On the other hand, if work safety authorities investigate an incident, it can result in citations, which can be costly to the company and would require an employer defense strategy.

Injured worker claim possible after construction site accident

Construction sites are usually full of potential dangers for workers. This is why employers are required to maintain compliance with safety standards for construction sites in California. However, even with appropriate safety compliance, an accident can happen, which may result in an injured worker claim against the construction company.

Construction workers already face dangers at most construction sites. However, when a construction site is located on a California roadway, it can be even more dangerous.

Probation officers face employee fraud charges in California

Police officers in California put their lives on the line every single day. This is why it is important that they are properly taken care of when injured while on the job. Nevertheless, police officers are human, and not all of them are completely honest when it comes to workplace injuries. A controversy has engulfed one locale police department after several officers were arrested for employee fraud.

Workers' compensation insurance is an important safety blanket for workers in the case of being injured while on the job. Benefits can provide income for a worker who has suffered an injury that prevents him or her from earning money in California. However, if a worker has sufficiently recovered from an injury the person is obliged to report that he or she is healthy enough to be able to work and earn income. Failure to do so can result in charges of employee fraud.
