Coronavirus concerns worry workers who may need to miss work

Workers' compensation can help cover you when you are injured on the job, but what happens when it's not an injury but an illness that strikes? People in San Diego may be interested to know that California's paid sick leave laws do require employers to offer you paid time off.

How are medical expenses handled after a work injury?

When a San Diego resident is injured in a workplace accident or becomes ill from the work he or she was doing, workers' compensation benefits will come to the forefront. A key to the worker's future is to receive the proper medical treatment to address the problem.

Helping you recover the workers' comp you deserve

Maintaining a job and making a steady income is necessary for many residents in California and elsewhere. Thus, when an individual is unable to work because of an injury or illness that occurred in the work environment, it is important that a worker understands what can be done to offset the financial troubles that could stem from this unfortunate event.

What types of workplace injuries could an office worker suffer?

While people in California can appreciate that certain occupations, such as those in the construction and manufacturing industry, present dangers to workers, it is important not to underestimate the workplace injuries that a person in a white-collar job could suffer. First, there is physical and mental fatigue. Heavy work loads that are unreasonable could cause a worker to become exhausted, leading to impaired judgment. It could also make it difficult for a worker to pay attention to details and follow instructions.

What benefits are injured workers entitled to?

In California and elsewhere, construction sites are frequently seen throughout the year. Whether it is a building, home or road, the construction industry is important. It not only builds necessary structures, it is a great career for those in this line of work. But, construction workers are, unfortunately, faced with a wide range of risks and dangers in the work environment. This often results in workers facing serious and sometimes disabling injuries.

What are the most common workplace injuries for women?

Workers in California and elsewhere must interact with their workplace environment. Whether it is an office, vehicle, factory or a construction site, this means dealing with the factors and people within the workplace. For many, this means very little to them, as it does not cause any disruptions. However, for some, this means safety issues that could result in workplace injuries.

The basics of workers' compensation

No one expects to be injured in the workplace, and they especially do not expect to deal with the financial hardships caused by a workplace injury. While these concerns may be present in the minds of workers in fields that carry more risks, such as construction and mining, the reality is that workers in Ohio could become injured in any industry and work environment.
