Workplace injuries: Carpal tunnel syndrome difficult to prove

California workers who spend hours on assembly lines, repeating the same movements over and over again, are at risk for developing repetitive stress injuries. This group of workplace injuries affects muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves -- often very painful. Even office workers who spend hours typing or doing other repetitive work can face difficulties.

Too many workplace injuries in California tree trimming industry

The nature of the work of tree trimmers in California will always put them at significant risks. According to the California Division of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, four workers suffered fatal workplace injuries within a six-week period starting on Dec.1. On that day, a branch struck and killed a tree trimmer and suffocation by palm fronds caused another worker's death three days later. After falling 60 feet, a trimmer died on Jan.6, and an employee who was clearing a tree away from a power line was struck and killed on Jan.9.

Resolving your workers' compensation case

You know that if you suffer injuries while on the job in California, you have the right to certain benefits and support through your employer's workers' compensation insurance. Applying for these benefits is just the first step in the process, however, and fairly settling your case may be a key component in your full and fair recovery.
