Workers' compensation Archives

All workers deserve safe conditions to work in

We recently discussed some of the ways that retail workers can remain safe during the holiday season. These workers aren't the only ones who need to stay safe. Other workers, including construction workers and road workers, also need to go home safely to their family members at the end of the day.

How can retail workers stay safe in holiday shopping crowds?

It is a day of the year that many retail workers abhor -- Black Friday. This is the day when people flock to stores in droves to battle it out with other shoppers to get great deals on items that can be kept or given out as gifts. This madness happens the day after Thanksgiving and has been associated with injuries and even deaths.

Don't try to go back to work too soon after an injury

Suffering an injury at work is something that most people fear. This is especially true for manual laborers who rely on their income to make ends meet from one month to the next. When an injury occurs, these individuals might try to push themselves back to work as quickly as possible so that they can resume earning the money upon which they depend.

You might have to fight for workers' compensation benefits

Workers' compensation cases are usually a matter of life or death for the workers who need benefits. Not only do they need access to medical care for their injuries, they also need money to pay bills and live until they are able to go back to work. Unfortunately, the workers' compensation system isn't perfect. The flaws mean that some workers will have to fight for the benefits that should have offered them coverage.

What happens when a worker is crushed?

Construction workers are at a higher risk than many other workers of suffering from serious injuries. Road construction workers face the risk of being crushed by vehicles. Construction workers who are working on building structures face the risk of being crushed by heavy machinery or falling items.

Trauma can lead to undiagnosed post-traumatic stress disorder

While many have heard of post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, you may still be unaware of the experiences that can cause the condition. The term is frequently used to diagnose those coming back from war or those who have been through a traumatic life event. If you have been injured in an on-the-job accident or seen a horrific one involving your co-workers, you should watch for the following signs of PTSD.

4 reasons for workers' comp denial and what to do about it

In theory, workers' compensation is supposed to kick in to help you cover the cost of injuries or illnesses sustained on the job. It's supposed to be a failsafe that brings peace of mind for both workers and employers, but sometimes the system doesn't work efficiently and your claim can be denied for many reasons. Some of those denial reasons have very little to do with your injury.
