What is wrongful death?

If one of your loved ones has passed away due to the negligence of someone in California, such as a doctor, a nursing home or a distracted driver, you may have a wrongful death action. Wrongful death also can be the result of malice, such as murder. In these cases, the civil action for wrongful death is completely separate from any criminal prosecution. It is not necessary that the perpetrator be convicted of a crime for you to be successful in your wrongful death suit.

Restaurant workers and on-the-job accidents

For cooks, waitresses, dishwashers and everyone else who is employed in the restaurant industry, a number of hazards are present that can cause an injury. Each day, restaurant workers are injured in different ways, some of which are very serious. Not only do these injuries frequently lead to physical pain, but they can also cause financial problems and in some cases the loss of life.

The shocking medical malpractice statistics

California residents who have suffered a medical malpractice injury or illness likely believe that theirs is a rare experience in what is an overall excellent health care system. Unfortunately, such is not the case. The Washington Post reports that medical errors are commonplace today and may account for as many as 251,000 deaths a year, making them the third leading cause of death in the United States.

Erb's palsy and birth

Erb's palsy, also known as obstetric brachial plexus palsy, can occur during difficult labor. Parents in California who have a baby who is born with Erb's palsy should be equipped with information about the implications and recovery associated with it.

Are work zone accidents occurring more often?

For road workers and others who find themselves in work zones, including the drivers and passengers of vehicles traveling through, work zone accidents can be very dangerous. Regrettably, these crashes happen all too often in California and upend the lives of those who are just trying to carry out their job responsibilities. Unfortunately, there is evidence which suggests they are becoming more common.

Does workers’ comp cover medical treatment?

If you were hurt at work, you may have all sorts of questions, such as how long your injury will keep you from returning to your job. However, medical treatment may be necessary and you may be wondering if workers’ compensation will help. In San Bernardino, and all of California, it is important for injured workers to realize that workers’ comp may be able to help them with necessary medical care after they have sustained a work-related injury.

Taking a look at permanent disability benefits

Sometimes, people sustain work-related injuries that only interrupt their lives on a temporary basis. After a while, some are able to completely recover and enjoy the quality of life they experienced beforehand. Sadly, some workers suffer injuries on the job that are so severe they become permanently disabled. For people who are going through this in San Bernardino, it is vital to know which resources are available in California, such as workers’ compensation. In fact, workers’ comp even offers permanent disability benefits that have helped many workers with lifelong injuries.
