Workers Compensation Attorney Santa Clarita
The City of Santa Clarita is the third largest city in Los Angeles County and is home to the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). The area was incorporated in late 1987 which unified the unincorporated communities of Valencia, Canyon County, Saugus and Newhall.
Santa Clarita is often associated with the popular Six Flags Magic Mountain, which also happens to be the top employer for the area with approximately 4,500 employees. Other leading employers in the area include Princess Cruises, the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, and Quest Diagnostics.
Younger and Newer Workforce More Likely to Be Hurt on the Job
The leading employers in the Santa Clarita area are those which are related to travel, tourism, hospitality, and the food industry. Many individuals who work in these occupations are younger people who, unfortunately, are at a greater risk of being injured while at work.
It is estimated that approximately 18 million young people (those who are 24 years old or younger) are in the workforce, accounting for nearly 15% of the market. These are disproportionately prone to suffering an injury while on the job, partially because they work in the most injury-prone sectors but also because of:
- Lack of experience
- Lack of knowledge
- Lack of proper training and/or supervision
What to Do If Injured While at Work
A young or new worker may feel apprehensive about reporting a workplace injury to a supervisor or manager. They may also feel that reporting the injury may put their job in jeopardy without realizing the immediate and potentially long-lasting effects of not seeking treatment and coverage.
Young and new workers are entitled to the same protections and the same rights as anyone else who is working in our state. The Turchin Workers’ Compensation law firm encourages these workers to notify their employers as soon as possible about their injury, and we help explain the workers’ compensation process and their legal rights.
Handling Your Claim
Many workers’ compensation claims can be handled by the injured worker. But if your case is complex, your injury significant, or if your claim has been denied, then it is best to seek help from a workers’ compensation attorney who will review your case and make sure your best interests are met.
The Turchin Workers’ Compensation law firm offers complimentary consultations to anyone who has been hurt while on the job. Arrange for your free appointment today by calling us at (818) 266-5601.
