No matter what your job is, there is always a risk of injury at work. While at many jobs, such as in an office, the risk for a work related injury is very small. Other jobs such as heavy manufacturing may come with higher risks and a greater chance for injury. However, even minor injuries can become serious if left untreated.
Have you or a loved one been seriously injured in a California workplace accident?
Every employee in California has the right to a safe workplace. If your catastrophic injury was the result of someone else’s negligence or an unsafe workplace, you may be able to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit in California in order to hold wrongdoers accountable for their reckless or negligent behavior.
