Millions of people in California and across the world travel by airplane. Though travelers may become upset if their flight is delayed or luggage is lost, few likely consider what goes into ensuring that a trip goes smoothly. Unfortunately, an airline employee in another state recently lost his life in a work accident.
There are a variety of different aspects that significantly impact a worker's health in California. While most people who consider issues that could ultimately result in a workers' comp claim likely think first of an injury caused by a fall or piece of equipment, for instance, many workers face harm due to weather-related issues. Specifically, mail carriers can face serious harm as a result of extreme heat.
California's police officers and firefighters see and hear horrific things in their jobs. When other people turn away or run away, they carry out their sworn duties and go where others cannot. For many, some of those sights and sounds won't go away.
Workers in California and across the country are likely aware of the risks they face while completing their work-related tasks. Despite this knowledge, it is difficult -- if not impossible -- to completely remove all risks from a workplace. In fact, a recent industrial accident in another state has resulted in the death of a worker.
All families in California and across the country are likely aware that they could experience an unexpected loss. Despite this knowledge, few people are truly prepared for such an event. Unfortunately, one out-of-state family may need workers' compensation insurance benefits to help them cope with the financial complications the recent death of a man may create.
