Even office workers could end up needing workers' compensation

When people think about workers' compensation claims, they probably think about dramatic injuries, like truck drivers getting into a crash while working. The truth is that office workers are also at risk for work-related injuries. Sometimes, these can be dramatic events, such as a slip-and-fall accident or even an electric shock from a machine. It is more common, however, for office workers to require coverage because of repetitive stress.

School bus drivers should brush up on safety

Now that students have headed back to school, parents are entrusting their children with school bus drivers who must ensure that these kids make it to school, then return home safely. Unfortunately, many bus drivers aren't lucky enough to make it through the entire school year without suffering some type of work-related injury.

Home health care workers face serious risks

There are many things that home health care workers face that other workers do not. While there isn't any way that these workers can predict everything that they will encounter when they go out to someone's home to care for them. It is possible that these workers will face injuries and illnesses due to work.

3 points to know about California workers' compensation

Workers' compensation is a type of insurance that is meant to protect workers if they are injured on the job or suffer a work-related illness. The important factor here to remember is that the injury or illness has to be related to your job. For example, if you are in a car accident while you are out with friends, you wouldn't qualify for coverage. If the accident occurred while you were driving as part of your job duties, you would likely be covered.

Is your employer failing to accommodate your work injury?

Getting hurt at work can cause a host of issues. In addition to needing to file a report and a claim for workers' compensation coverage, you could find yourself unable to work for some time. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may need reasonable accommodations from your employer to continue working and earning a living wage. Under federal law, employers must make reasonable efforts to accommodate the disabilities of those who are otherwise qualified to fulfill a position. Whether you are dealing with a short-term disability while you recover or something permanent, you should get helped.

Know your health care rights for workers' compensation

Being injured at work comes with a lot of unknowns. You don't know how bad the injury is, how long you will have to remain off work, or what the healing process will entail. This puts you into a bit of a bind because you can't get your bills paid or get the medical care that you need with the mere hope that you will eventually be able to work again.
