How a workers' compensation attorney can help you

Although the California workers' compensation system was, in theory, designed to help injured workers in San Diego and around the state to get benefits reliably and efficiently, it probably comes as no surprise that employers and those who represent them try to pay out as little as possible in terms of benefits and will use legal means to accomplish that purpose.

Fatal accident kills teen pedestrian; driver flees scene

It is an unfortunate reality that car accidents will happen in San Diego and across the country. Some of them are due to recklessness on the part of drivers, because of driving under the influence or some other transgression. Others happen due to circumstances. One thing that is universal for these accidents is that a driver is required to stop after it has happened. But, there are times when drivers flee the scene. This is particularly egregious when it is a pedestrian who was hit and the accident resulted in a fatality. Those who have been affected by this type of incident need to be aware of their potential right to file a wrongful death claim.

NHTSA applies five-star rating to measure rollover rates

Rollover accidents are one of the deadliest types of accidents drivers can get involved in. Rollover accidents account for one-third of all fatalities but are responsible for one one-in-ten serious accidents that require a tow-away. Thus, rollovers do not occur that frequently but when they do, rollover accidents are responsible for a disproportionate number of deaths.

Broken bones may lead to serious conditions such as RSD/CRPS

When you are injured in a workplace accident, workers' compensation typically covers the cost of your emergency medical care, physical therapy and workplace retraining after the accident. In some cases, however, what start out as simple injuries, such as broken bones, may progress into something more serious and lifelong, such as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), also called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Both of these terms refer to the same debilitating nerve-related disorder that occurs in a small percentage of people who sustain broken bone injuries due to some kind of trauma.

Key facts to remember about workers' compensation in San Diego

Workers' compensation is something that San Diego residents will frequently forget about until they need it. It is easy to get caught up in one's routine and think that a workplace accident or workplace injuries cannot happen. Unfortunately, they can and do. Sometimes they occur when working at jobs that require a lot of physical labor. At other times, they happen in safe, sedentary jobs where the belief that an injury can occur is thought to be limited to the worst-case scenario. Workers' compensation benefits are imperative and it is wise to know certain facts about them no matter the type of work a person does.

California dog bite laws: 4 facts for parents

Everyone knows that children do things that adults wouldn't. For example, a child might walk up to a strange animal to pet it without permission. Or, perhaps in a fit of aggression, a teen could kick or maim an animal. While most dog bites are not a result of mistreating an animal, this can play a role in whether you can seek compensation after your child suffers an attack. Here are four things you should know about dog bite laws in California.

An attorney can advocate for injuries arising from dog bites

Dogs are widely considered as man’s best friend. Not only are they popular pets but also act as our guardians against individuals with malicious intent. Despite their adorable perception, a dog is also susceptible to unpredictable behavior in the company of large crowds. While some are accustomed to the constant friendly petting from guests, some do not welcome such behavior but instead exhibit aggressive actions.
