TV role puts workers’ compensation benefits at risk

In the event that someone is injured performing his or her work duties in California, he or she may be entitled to compensation. Workers’ compensation benefits awarded on the basis of permanent disability are intended to account for the injured person’s medical expenses and impaired physical state. Therefore, suspicions of workers’ comp fraud are often pursued vigorously by insurance providers.

Could long hours be affecting my health?

While it’s perfectly normal to feel tired after a long day at work, your health and well-being can actually be impacted by the work schedule that you keep. If you regularly work night shifts and/or over eight hours a day, you may experience any number of physical and cognitive difficulties that could qualify as work-related injuries.

Late-night construction endangers California workers

Performing road construction work at night does offer several benefits to workers, as it allows them to avoid conditions like midday heat and rush hour traffic. That is why many major construction projects on California roadways are performed primarily after dark. However, late-night construction projects can subject workers to a number of other dangerous conditions, such as poor visibility and driver negligence.

Is my injury related to my line of work?

Many workers do not realize the vast array of injuries that can be considered job-related under the appropriate circumstances. Findlaw explains that injuries can be the result of one particular incident or can develop over an extended period of time. For instance, a warehouse employee may sustain a back injury from lifting boxes at work or an office assistant might be diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome after years of repetitive computer typing.
