Some jobs more prone to workplace accidents than others

If you're currently employed in the construction, farming or public service industries in California, you join thousands of other workers in the nation whose jobs are inherently dangerous. Due to heavy machinery, power tools, traffic and other related issues, these, and several other work arenas, are considered high risks for workplace accidents. Employers are obligated to provide appropriate training and make every effort to keep workers safe on the job.

Sadly, it doesn't always happen that way. When the unexpected occurs and one or more workers is injured, a process typically unfolds in the aftermath in connection with workers' compensation benefits. The trouble is that the system is rather complicated and difficult to navigate, even in the best of circumstances.

If an insurance agency denies a claim or an employer fails to report an injury, matters can get even worse. The last thing an injured worker needs is more stress when trying to obtain needed benefits to make ends meet during recovery. Such compensation is also often used to pay medical bills, which may keep pouring in long after an actual accident takes place.

At Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld, we are prepared to help you get any benefits to which you're entitled to cover two-thirds of your present wages plus medical expenses and any other costs related to your injury. Our California legal team has been assisting those injured in workplace accidents for more than six decades. This experience provides keen insight and assertive decision-making skills that allows us to help our clients get the benefits they deserve and the care they need to achieve the fullest possible recoveries.
