California Workers Compensation Lawyers Representing Victims in Burbank
The city of Burbank is located in Los Angeles County. As of the 2010 US census the population was over 103,000 and many more often commute from outside of the area for employment opportunities.
Burbank was named after entrepreneur and dentist David Burbank who built a sheep ranch in the area in 1867. He was so successful in raising sheep that he stopped practicing dentistry and instead set his sights on investing in real estate in Los Angeles. From that point onwards the area began to develop quickly.
Burbank is renowned as being the media capital of the world. Situated only a few miles north of Hollywood, some of the world’s largest entertainment companies have headquarters in Burbank including The Walt Disney Company, ABC Studios and Warner Bros. Entertainment.
Top Myths About Injuries on a Movie Set
Most of us think that actors have it easy, but that isn’t always necessarily so. Actors and their support crew are just as much – if not even more – at risk of serious injury or illness than those who work in an office environment.
Myth #1: Actors Have Stuntmen
Apart from the fact that some actors demand that they perform stunts themselves, many do not have the option to use a stuntman.
Myth #2: Actors Are the Only People at Risk
Almost everyone is at risk for slipping, tripping and falling on a movie set. Often it is the cameramen and women who must run with heir cameras to catch every second of action who are most prone to injury.
Myth #3: You Cannot Sue Outside of Workers Compensation
There are some situations when, after suffering an injury in the workplace, you can also sue other parties for damages. Some examples include:
- If you were injured because of a defective product (i.e. a defective harness)
- If you were injured or became ill after coming in contact with a toxic substance
- If you were injured because your employer intentionally put you at risk or displayed egregious conduct
- If a third party caused your injuries
