Los Angeles Attorneys Recover for Wide Range of Workplace Accidents

Protecting the rights of injured workers in California

Workplace safety should be a major focus of every business, and federal and state governments impose exacting regulations on employers to foster safe environments. Nevertheless, accidents happen. Slippery floors, poor lighting, hallway obstructions and maintenance lapses can all result in injuries. Exposure to toxic mold, cleaning chemicals or products used to treat new carpeting and furniture can also cause health impairment. To enforce your legal rights in such eventualities, you need an attorney well-versed in workers’ compensation. Goldschmid, Silver & Spindel stands up to employers and their insurance companies to make sure you recover the money you need to heal and move forward.

Danger lurks in many workplaces

A compensable injury or exposure can occur in any work environment. Among the most common are slips and falls, machine malfunctions, falling objects and vehicle accidents. Inhaling a hazardous gas or dust, such as from heating and ventilating systems, can also produce health problems.

Some industries are inherently more risky, such as manufacturing, chemical production, mining, oil and gas drilling, logging, farming and commercial trucking.

Accidents relating to construction and premises renovation are very common and often result in the most serious injuries. They can be in the nature of:

  • Heavy equipment mishaps (including forklifts, back hoes, cranes and trucks)
  • Machine malfunctions
  • Electrocution
  • Falling objects
  • Falls from heights
  • Falls into holes
  • Collapsing trenches
  • Fire or explosion
  • Toxic substances
  • Power tools
  • Overexertion
  • Inadequate training
  • Disregarded safety standards

If your building is under construction, you could fall victim to additional hazards, such as falling objects, toxic fumes and unstable walkways and may qualify for workers’ compensation benefits.
