Personal injury: Fatal workplace injury leads to civil lawsuit

Workplace injuries are typically covered by the California workers' compensation insurance system, which is a no-fault program. This means that, even if it was the worker's fault, he or she could file a workers' compensation benefits claim. However, if the gross negligence of an employer causes a severe injury or a worker's death, there might also be grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit in a civil court.

Workers' compensation: 40-foot fall kills California ironworker

In what must have been a traumatic experience, teachers, school staff and co-workers recently an ironworker fall 40 feet to his death. The incident occurred on a construction site at a high school in San Diego. The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health has launched an investigation. Falls form a significant percentage of the death benefits claims that are filed in California each year.

Shopping injuries can be quite dangerous

When you go to a California grocery store to pick up food for dinner or you head to your favorite retail store to do some shopping, you probably don't feel like you are doing anything dangerous. In fact, you may not think you are at any kind of risk for an injury or an accident, but every day, people suffer physical harm while simply visiting a store. Injured shoppers can experience serious injuries, debilitating pain and expensive medical bills as a result of their shopping accidents.

Workers' compensation: The hazards faced by retail store workers

Workers in retail stores nationwide, including California, face many more safety hazards than most people would expect. Many workers' compensation claims filed each year involve injuries suffered by employees of retail stores. The risks they face were recently underscored by an $898,682 fine proposed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration concerning four different Dollar Tree Stores in another state.
