Worker critically hurt in California construction accident

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.

Explaining premises liability and storm cleanup

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 workplace injury may develop over time

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.
