A look at crush injuries and crush syndrome

Many industries in California task workers with handling or working in the vicinity of extremely heavy objects. For example, road construction involves the use of equipment weighing several tons. Bridge construction often means working underneath massive steel and concrete structures. If an accident occurs in either of these scenarios, serious injuries are likely to occur.

Do not ignore safety if you are new to the construction industry

When younger workers acquire their first jobs in the construction industry, they often feel very lucky. Construction work pays relatively well, so getting a foot in the door can lead to greater pay and better job positions down the line. However, suffering injuries due to an on-the-job accident can stop a new career before it turns lucrative.

Why are some workers' compensation claims denied?

Aside from suffering a workplace injury in the first place, receiving notice that your workers' compensation claim was denied is one of the most frustrating events you can experience. You are already suffering and may be unable to work so the benefits you would receive from your claim are much-needed. Unfortunately, claim denials can and do happen.
