How prevalent is workplace violence?

As a California worker, you expect to work in a safe and violence-free environment. As reasonable as those expectations are, however, you may be shocked to learn that over two million Americans report each year that they were victims of workplace violence. You may be even more shocked to learn that 403 American workers died in 2014 as the result of a workplace homicide, the fourth leading cause of workplace fatalities.

Work-related injuries can occur away from work or off the clock

While at a get-together with your coworkers, you twist your ankle and fall, later finding out you suffered a sprain. Are you eligible for workers' compensation for your injury? That would depend on the specifics of the accident. If you fell during your company's annual holiday party, workers' compensation might apply, but you would be out of luck if you were just having dinner with your office mates after work. At the Law Offices of Hussain & Gutierrez, we know the circumstances surrounding after-hours work injuries in California can be confusing, and we are prepared to answer your questions.

What outdoor construction dangers do you face at work?
