A number of regulations are in place to keep California construction workers safe when they are on the job. Those regulations can involve, for example, the use of safety equipment to ensure workers' protection from worksite dangers and the need for special training to teach construction workers about the hazards they may face while performing their duties. However, despite the presence these and other regulations, construction workers in California still suffer debilitating work-related accidents. A recent incident in the state highlights this fact.
When an animal bites, it's something that you may not be expecting. Maybe you were just walking down the street when it happened, or you were visiting friends. Whatever the case may be, when you get attacked, there is no easy way to handle the situation.
Storms can roll through the San Mateo area without notice. They can bring with them heavy wind, downpours, lightning and leave behind quite a bit of damage. Many property owners often wonder how long they have to clean up their property following a storm. They worry for good reason too. They don't want you to get hurt from the hazards left by the storm if you stop by for a visit, causing a premises liability lawsuit.
A sudden accident may cause a person to suffer a serious and debilitating injury. Such an abrupt occurrence that leads to a long-term recovery may keep a San Mateo resident away from their job as they recuperate. If the accident happened while they were at work or while performing work-related duties for their employer, they may be entitled to workers' compensation.
