Workers Compensation Attorney Sherman Oaks

The neighborhood of Sherman Oaks in Los Angeles, California was named after General Moses Hazeltine Sherman who was a partner of the Los Angeles Suburban Homes Company. Founded in 1927, land purchasers could acquire a piece of Sherman Oaks territory for $780 per acre.

The boundaries of the neighborhood have changed substantially over recent years, with the most recent change happening in 2009 which included approximately 1,800 homes in Van Nuys. The neighborhood has been home to many recognizable entertainers, including Charlie Sheen, Shia LeBeouf, Tom Selleck, and Demi Lovato.

Production Companies Must Adhere to Workplace Safety Laws

Regardless of where a film production company is from, every one must adhere to California’s workplace safety laws for entertainers, camera crews, producers, directors and others who may potentially be injured while on the job.

California has some of the most stringent workplace safety and health regulations in the country because of the number of entertainment companies which are based out of and do business here. But these companies and those under their employ should not assume that they are in compliance to a point where both federal and another states’ laws are satisfied.

Who May Be Covered Under Worker’s Compensation Laws

Workers’ compensation coverage may be extended to a variety of individuals who are involved in the filming and production process:

  • Actors/performers
  • Technical crew members

Stunt persons are typically not covered by workers’ compensation insurance, and actors/performer who perform their own stunts may also not be covered depending on the current workers’ compensation laws.

Why Choose Worker’s Compensation for Your Injuries

There are a variety of reasons why it is beneficial to choose workers’ compensation insurance after you have been hurt on the job:

  • It is a no-fault insurance system
  • You have a dedicated case manager
  • You will have access to health and safety/vocational training and resources
  • You may receive disability benefits and/or a pension
  • You can receive comprehensive benefits at a competitive price
