What can my boss do, or not do, if I get hurt on the job?

Even though workers in the San Diego area probably know that workers' compensation benefits are available for almost all work-related illnesses and injuries, they may still feel uncomfortable with filing a claim since it can be hard to predict how an employer will respond. After all, no employer like to pay more money for an injured worker, especially if the worker is not able to come to work for a while.

Were you hurt while working as an independent contractor?

Work opportunities have changed substantially in the last few decades. It is now less common for professionals to work for the same business for their entire adult life. Many people aren't even hired as employees, but work as independent contractors instead. More companies engage in this practice, primarily as a means of avoiding serious financial liabilities like employment tax or insurance.

Safety gear, including helmets, help during bicycle accidents

Bicycling can be a source of physical fitness and personal pride. Not only are you reducing your carbon footprint when you ride a bike instead of driving a car, you're also taking care of your body. Unfortunately, like with a car, every time you get on a bike you assume some risk of injury or even death. Bikes simply don't offer much physical protection against injuries if you're in an accident.

Assistance after a fatal workplace accident

No family who lives in or around San Diego, California, ever expects that a loved one who goes off to work will not ever return home again due to a fatal workplace accident. Even for someone in a dangerous line of work, like emergency services or construction, the expectation is that they will be given what they need to stay safe and healthy while on the job.

Even a mild concussion can be serious

Imagine taking a fall at work and hitting your head on the way down. You end up with a lump at the base of your skull, but you do not think the injury is serious because you did not require stitches. However, simply because you did not see severe surface damage does not mean that something was not badly hurt. It actually does not take that much force for a person to suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Bruising, tearing or swelling of the brain is not the same as what occurs in the knee or shoulder, or other area of the body. Even a minor bump to the head can have serious consequences.
