Dealing with a post-operative error

If you are preparing for an operation or recently had a surgical procedure performed, you may have a myriad of questions and concerns. For example, you could be worried about the cost of the procedure or the risks associated with surgery. Unfortunately, you may experience challenges even after the operation is over, from physical pain to costly bills and the consequences of a post-operative error. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we understand the serious nature of these mistakes and the impact they have on patients in San Bernardino, and people who live throughout California.

54-year-old man passes away after jobsite fall

Whether a construction worker is hurt after using dangerous machinery or struck by falling debris, construction sites present many hazards. That said, falling is especially prevalent and results in a large number of injuries and fatalities each year. In San Bernardino, and jobsites across California, those employed in the construction industry should recognize the risk of falling whenever they work on a ladder, roof or scaffolding. Unfortunately, construction worker accidents will continue to occur regardless of the safety measures that are taken.

Temporary workers and workers' comp benefits

According to the Department of Industrial Relations, some temporary workers in the state of California are entitled to workers' compensation benefits if they are injured on the job. In San Bernardino, and other cities across the state, it is crucial for temporary workers to recognize their employee rights and take advantage of any resources that are available if they suffer a job-related injury.

Reviewing supplemental job displacement vouchers

In 2014, more than 2.9 million non-fatal work injury and illness cases were reported in the private sector, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. These injuries result in various hardships, such as missing work and medical costs. However, some employees who are hurt at work are permanently disabled and unable to return to their previous position in San Bernardino, and all across the state of California.

Restoring normalcy after an electrical accident

From falling debris to harmful chemicals, you may face a number of risks if you work in the construction industry. That said, electrocution can be especially dangerous and turn your life upside down in multiple ways. If you were electrocuted at work, you should stay focused on recovery and review any tools that are available to help you restore a sense of normalcy. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, our San Bernardino, California law firm is very familiar with the dangers that electrical workers and others who work in construction face each day.

Medical malpractice can happen before birth

Childbirth injuries can turn a magical day dark, shifting a joyous mood to dreadful concern. While injuries can occur in childbirth, many childbirth dangers could have been identified or addressed prior to the birth during prenatal care and through proper advance screening.

Preventing complications during childbirth

If you or a family member are expecting a child, or plan to become pregnant, you may have a variety of concerns. For example, you could be stressed out due to financial matters or the need to take time off work. However, in San Bernardino, and every community in California, birth injuries are a serious problem that leave some parents and their children with lifelong challenges.
