Workplace falls lead to numerous injuries every year, all over California. They're consistently one of the major reasons that workers get hurt, and they often lead to very serious physical issues and complications.
Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) is a government program providing financial aid to people who have a medical condition expected put them out of work for at least a year or result in their death. The program helps people who have fallen on hard times, but sometimes the system doesn’t work as it should.
People get injured doing their jobs every day. And while some injuries come with a gruesome story (such as getting an arm trapped in a machine), the truth is that most workplace injuries are rather mundane. But that doesn’t mean they are any less deserving of attention.
California's workers' compensation program helps workers who suffer a work-related injury get the financial assistance they need to deal with medical expenses and lost wages. For an injury to be covered by the program, it must either prevent a person from doing their job or interfere with their ability to do it.
