What are some common occupational diseases?

Workers' compensation in California is designed to protect you when you are injured — or if you become unwell due to your professional activities. However, you might find that things are not always as simple as they should be. If you were to receive a diagnosis of a long-term, occupational disease from your doctor, the medical information itself could be confounding. Combined with the complexity of the workers' comp issue, it would be completely understandable should you feel overwhelmed by the situation.

Are you eligible for Social Security disability benefits?

If you live in California and have a disability severe enough to prevent you from working and supporting yourself or your family, you may be thinking about applying for Social Security disability benefits from the U.S. Social Security Administration. In order to be eligible for such benefits, however, your condition, situation and work history must first meet certain terms.

Erb’s palsy: causes, risk factors and treatment

When you give birth in a California hospital, chances are, your primary goal is having a healthy child. Regrettably, however, this is not always the case, and in some situations, improper delivery techniques and other physician errors lead to medical complications for mother, child or both. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we recognize how upsetting it can be when a doctor’s error causes Erb’s palsy or a similar condition, and we have helped many parents whose children suffered injury during the birthing process pursue appropriate recourse.

Everybody deserves protection

We recently took a look at firefighting from the perspective of workplace safety. Emergency responders are some of the most at-risk professionals, and the conditions under which they work are highly regulated as a result. While the same level of danger might not be present in all workplaces, we believe at Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, that all workers in California should have a safe and healthy place to work — or at least everybody should benefit from dutiful actions on the part of employers.

Who is responsible for a death at a nursing home?

There are few things more distressing than the loss of a loved one, especially if it occurred suddenly. If you have reason to feel partly responsible for the circumstances that led to the loss, such as placement in a nursing home, then it could alleviate your conscience to know that the fault might not be yours at all. The California legal system is set up to investigate these events, and processing your loss through the law could lead to closure as well as your receipt of proper compensation for your loss.

Health conditions doctors commonly misdiagnose

When you have an ailment or unexplained symptoms and you visit your California physician, you want to feel confident the he or she will be able to appropriately assess your condition and render you an accurate diagnosis. Unfortunately, however, doctors are not immune to error, but the consequences that can occur when doctors misdiagnose you can prove considerable and life-changing. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we understand just how much an inaccurate medical diagnosis can upend your life, and we have helped many clients facing similar circumstances seek appropriate recourse.
