Workers' compensation: OSHA advises methods to prevent violence

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration proposed a $71,000 penalty after an investigation at a behavioral health facility in Florida. The safety violations that were identified at this acute care inpatient center underscore the hazards to which workers in such facilities are exposed. Many workers' compensation benefits claims are filed by injured employees who were victims of violent patients.

What is Florida's personal injury statute of limitations?

Injuries suffered in auto accidents or on dangerous premises are not always evident immediately after the incident. In fact, a victim may think any neck pain or stiffness will quickly resolve itself, but an injury caused by whiplash could result in years of chronic pain. The question will be whether he or she can file a personal injury lawsuit in a Florida civil court if pain and suffering become a long-term consequence.

Denied Social Security disability: Appeal or litigate?

At this time, Social Security Disability Insurance benefits might be the victim's only means of income. However, many claims for benefits are denied at first.

Workers' compensation: Mental health workers exposed to violence

Many employees in mental health facilities suffer serious injuries because they are not properly protected against assaults by mental health patients who become violent. Many workers' compensation claims follow such violence every year. Following an investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, a behavioral health center in Florida faces over $71,000 in proposed penalties.
