Understanding whether its personal injury or worker's comp action

Accidents happen. We do not like to think about them, but individuals in California and elsewhere find themselves as victims of a serious accident. It should be noted that not all accidents are the same. Some occur in the workplace, signaling that a worker has certain rights and benefits because of the injury they suffered. In other cases, the negligence of another driver, property owner or defective products are the cause of the accident. By discerning which type of suit applies can help an individual be more successful in their efforts.

Can I get workers’ compensation for on-the-job hearing loss?

Workers' compensation claims are famously difficult to navigate for many people, especially if their injuries did not occur in a single instance, but built up over time. While it may be a bit more difficult to document a cumulative work-related injury, this is still harm that a worker suffers on the job, and deserves fair compensation.

Fatal hit-and-run pedestrian crash in California

Our days can get busy. We may miss some parts of the day, especially when we are focused on a certain task. However, there is one place where these distractions should not come into play, and that is in a motor vehicle. If a motorist does not take the time to prevent and address any distractions that may come their way, he or she could be held accountable for the harms caused to an accident victim.

Bitten by a dog? Use your attorney during the claim's process

In many cases, a person who has been attacked by a dog had met the dog dozens of times before. It was always a little bit of an aggressive pet, but it wasn't biting people. Instead, it would use its mouth to playfully bite, as dogs do since dogs never know their own strength in terms of potential consequences to humans.

What are the dog bite laws in California?

Owning a dog is a fun and exciting. Having a bond, relationship and a companionship is a positive experience. However, along with the fun come the responsibilities. A dog owner must ensure that the dog is well cared for but they must also make sure that the dog does not harm any one that comes into contact with them. A dog bite can be a serious situation, resulting in a victim suffering serious physical, mental, emotional and financial damages.

Typing can lead to workplace injuries

While you may not think that your office job is particularly strenuous, the reality is that there are still hazards you could face. One of those hazards is a repetitive stress injury from typing. If you work an eight hour day at the computer, then you're aware that you're frequently using a mouse, typing and moving in similar ways throughout the day.

Seeking workers' comp for a back injury

Suffering an injury in the workplace can be a serious situation. While some injuries are easy to overcome, only requiring a few days to recover, others can cause an employee to suffer for weeks, months and even years. When a back injury occurs in the work environment, a worker could endure much pain and suffering, requiring much medical attention and even time off work to recover.

Helping you recover compensation after a car crash

We live in a society that relies on motor vehicles. While these are efficient ways to get around, automobiles present many dangers. Beyond the fact that motorists and passengers are traveling at a high rate of speed among many motor vehicles, there is a growing chance that a driver will be traveling while also using their cellphone. Distracted driving is a serious situation that far too often causes serious and fatal collisions.
