Third-party cases can give injured workers extra compensation

California victims of work-related injuries are typically entitled to workers' compensation benefits. The same applies to the surviving family members of employees who suffered fatal on-the-job injuries. However, the state-regulated insurance program typically pays benefits that are limited to medical expenses or end-of-life costs along with a portion of lost wages. Third-party cases could be filed if the injury or death resulted from the negligence of  third parties not linked to the same employer. In those circumstances additional financial relief might be obtained through the civil justice system.

Workplace accidents: Worker airlifted after tractor rollover

Working on and around tractors pose multiple hazards on farms and any other industrial facilities where these vehicles are used. California employers are responsible for the safety and health of their employees, and this responsibility includes providing adequate safety training and ensuring that only qualified operators use these vehicles. Unfortunately, not all employees receive the necessary protection, and preventable workplace accidents happen.
