Social media may create problems for your workers’ comp claim

As some people in California know, what you put out on social media could cause problems if you need to file a workers’ compensation claim. Insurers will be on the lookout for anything they can use to justify giving you only a partial settlement or even denying your claim outright. To help prevent an insurer from using your own social media against you, here are some things to watch out for.

Proper care for preeclampsia is a must

Expectant parents in California should be able to enjoy the months leading up to a birth without worry and focus on welcoming their new loved one into their family. However, the reality is that there can be health conditions that develop and require vigilance on the part of pregnant women but also their physicians. Preeclampsia is one of these conditions.

Bike accidents and brain injuries

When it comes to bike accidents, all sorts of consequences may arise in the wake of a wreck. From the loss of life and broken bones to financial challenges and emotional hardships, the ramifications of bicycle accidents can be overwhelming for victims and their loved ones. Sometimes, a bicyclist is responsible for the accident, which may involve a vehicle or may only involve the bicyclist. In other instances, a reckless driver may cause the crash after slamming into someone who was riding a bike. Moreover, brain injuries one of the more concerning consequences associated with bike accidents.

Recovering from a job-related burn

People sustain many different types of injuries in workplace accidents, such as broken bones. However, it is crucial to keep in mind that there are less common injuries which can be just as devastating. For example, workers may be burned while on the job, and burns can cause an incredible amount of pain, bring on financial problems due to hospital bills and result in missed work. If you have been burned on the job, you may be going through a number of challenges in your personal and professional life and it is pivotal to concentrate on recovering.

What are possible sources of dirty hospital air?

We want our California hospitals to be a place of treatment and healing. We would not want to go to a hospital only to end up sicker than when we first came in. And yet if proper hygiene is not observed or if there is a problem with facility upkeep, there is the possibility that pathogens and infections could get loose in the air. The result is that patients may endure longer hospital stays or otherwise healthy people may become ill.

Who is liable if someone dies on a boat?

Riding on a boat on waters off the coast of California should be an enjoyable time for you and your family. You want to be confident that your boating experience will be free of tragedy. Sadly, this is not always the case, as accidental deaths can occur if a person falls off a boat and drowns or by sustaining an injury on the boat itself. In such a situation, you may wonder who should be held liable for the wrongful death of your loved one.
