Aggressive advocacy for those seeking workers' compensation

If you've been injured on the job, then you know the difficulties you can face as you try to recover your health. There are, of course, the physical limitations that may be thrust upon you, as well as pain, thereby requiring extensive medical care. Yet, your injuries may also leave you unable to work, which means there may come a period of time where you run out of income and deplete your savings. This, in turn, can leave you in a dire financial position where you may struggle to keep the lights on, put food on the table and otherwise provide for yourself and your family.

Crash between semi truck, car leaves 1 dead

A fatal crash today on Interstate 680 in Fremont, California left one person dead and the police investigating the crash. It appears that the driver of a smaller car crashed into the back of a semi truck, causing the fatal circumstances that left one dead in the sedan. Few details were released about the crash, probably because the police have not concluded their investigation into the matter. Little else is known about the crash.

California construction accident leaves 13 injured

Construction work may seem inherently dangerous, but the truth of the matter is that, so long as employers follow the regulations put in place to ensure worker safety, then workplace accidents should be relatively rare. Regardless of whether regulations are followed, a workplace accident can leave a worker in a tough position with not only physical pain that can result in limitations, but also financial losses in the form of lost wages and medical expenses. These individuals may be able to recover compensation for their losses, though, so long as they can show that they qualify for workers' compensation benefits.
