Helping victims recover from workplace accidents

An accident at work can be a difficult event to get through. Not only may a California resident experience pain and suffering from the injuries they sustain through their accident, but they may also suffer stress and economic loss when they cannot do their job and provide for themselves and their loved ones. In the end, an on-the-job incident may leave a person with physical trauma, economic loss and emotional suffering.

What are repetitive motion injuries?

Getting up each day and following a regular schedule of preparing one's self for work is not uncommon for California workers. They may get showers, get dressed, eat breakfast, and brush their teeth all before getting in their cars and driving to their jobs. Once they arrive at their place of employment, they may fall into similar routines with regard to their work responsibilities and use their repetitive practices to get them through their days.

Can I sue if I'm injured outside a premises?

If you are injured when you are inside a public premises, for example in a grocery store, movie theater or gym, it often comes as second nature to consider making a claim, especially if you believe that the premises was negligent. However, if you were injured when you stood in the immediate external vicinity of the premises, it is likely that you will not be sure whether you can hold the premises responsible.

Accidents at construction sites and other locations where heavy machinery and equipment are used can be traumatic and life-threatening. When San Mateo residents think about work-related incidents their minds may immediately drift to accidents happening in these types of environments. Although serious worker injuries do occur in areas where construction and industrial work are done, serious incidents can affect workers in offices and other indoor places of employment.
