Sometimes we see the warning signs of an accident about to happen: the blown gasket, the dysfunctional knobs, the broken harness, the brake that doesn’t quite stop when it should. People brave these things anyway out of ignorance or the sheer desire to perform according to the standards of their bosses. Supervisors sometimes already see the signs but choose to ignore safety on account of production numbers being down.

Paper copy of a claim form

When your boss or supervisor pushes you to perform, even at the risk of injury, you can make a serious and willful claim against them. A serious and willful claim, unlike other worker’s compensation claims, involves the intent of the supervisor and his or her omission of information about the dangers of pursuing work in a particular setting.

Willful and serious claims can be made if:

  1. The superiors at the workplace intentionally do not provide safety information on possible dangers in the work environment.
  2. The employers were not able to create a safe work environment for their employees.

Under California workers' compensation laws, if the employer is found guilty of either of the two, the worker has the right to get a 50% increase on the injury compensation. Several factors will factor into the calculation of the benefits, whether the injury results in temporary or permanent disability, and terms of the medical treatment. In case medical fees go over the original 100% allotment, workers can recover the amount spent in pursuit of the 50% additional fee provided that the extra expense does not go beyond $250.

Do you believe that there is more to your injury than meets the eye? Is there a possibility that you should have been provided adequate warning about equipment or safety issues in your workplace? Did your workplace even comply with work safety regulations?

If you have any unresolved questions regarding your situation, it is best that you seek the advice of lawyers who will take the time to listen to you and investigate the various factors that may have led to your accident. Blomberg, Benson & Garrett, Inc. in The Inland Empire understands that worker safety nets, workplace safety standards and regulations, and injury compensation are not optional - they are essentially rights of anyone pursuing livelihood.
