Uber launches new insurance coverage for its drivers

If you work for a company as an independent contractor, you may not have a right to workers' compensation. That doesn't mean you can go without coverage of any kind, though, because if you do and get hurt, you may need to file a personal injury claim or rely on savings to get through the emergency. In some cases, those without any option for compensation find themselves struggling to pay medical bills or to cover their lost wages.

Can you file a wrongful death claim after a worker death?

When you got the call that your spouse was killed, you knew that workers' compensation would kick in. For you, that didn't seem like enough. You knew that the accident was a result of negligence, and you want to know if you can get more than what workers' compensation wants to provide to you.

Tick bites: Employers could be liable for illnesses that result

Employers may never have thought of this before, but if an employee suffers a bug bite that leads to infection or illness while working, they could be held liable for that injury. For example, in California, Lyme disease does have the potential to be a problem, particularly in areas with wildlife and foliage. The disease isn't always easy to detect right away, but over time, it can lead to chronic health issues.

Harrowing numbers show the extent of workplace fatalities

Something troubling happened in California in 2015. In one year, 388 workers were killed at work. This means that an average of just over one person left for a work shift and didn't come home each day of the year. This is something that is simply unacceptable.
