After reportedly causing a car accident, a man who serves on the board of a California city's water agency received workers' compensation. However, because of two previous convictions of driving under the influence, his driver's license has been suspended since 2003. Some of his fellow board members think that he may be receiving workers' compensation payments under improper circumstances, and they believe that those payments should be withdrawn.
Workplace accidents and injuries happen all the time in California. Suffering a workplace injury can be very traumatizing and can make it difficult to continue working. That is why it is important for workers to know they have the right to receive workers' compensation benefits in California.
