Construction accidents often lead to safety violation citations

Employers in California and throughout the United States must comply with all applicable safety standards and laws governing such matters in the workplace. Proper training for employees, well-maintained equipment and regular inspection of worksites are all part of a process when it comes to keeping workers as safe as possible on the job. Construction accidents still occur, however, and the results can be devastating.

Workplace accidents can lead to other unexpected problems

There are many types of dangerous jobs in California. For instance, those who work on farms or in the construction industry are no strangers to various safety risks on the job. Not all workplace accidents occur in inherently dangerous places though. Office workers or others whose duties are carried out in relatively calm environments can also get hurt when they least expect it.

Seeking workers' compensation for repetitive strain injuries

While many California workers often have to perform the same duties day in and day out, such repetitive tasks can actually cause injuries for some people. The workers' compensation program is in place to help employees in such circumstances. Depending on a particular situation, the injuries may require ongoing medical treatment or physical therapy to achieve full recovery.

This type of situation is why workers' compensation exists

Anyone whose ever been injured on the job in California understands how challenging the recovery process can be. Thankfully, the workers' compensation program is designed to help recovering victims of workplace accidents cover medical expenses and replace lost wages when injuries prevent them from returning to their duties. A recent tragic accident that occurred in another state is an example of a type of situation that often leads to a benefits claim being filed.

Construction accidents like this one are especially tragic

A young woman in another state, age 19, was working for a construction company with her brother. The two of them, in fact, were apparently assigned to the same project and were working alongside one another when a recent tragedy occurred. The two were doing some sort of project involving pipe and were stationed down inside a 15-foot hole in the ground. When construction accidents occur in California, there are usually investigations to follow, and this case is no exception.
