California Workers Compensation Lawyers Representing Victims in Granada Hills
Granada Hills is a suburban residential community which is set in the San Fernando Valley part of Los Angeles. With 3,344 residents per square mile as of the 2000 US census, the area is lightly populated in comparison to other communities in Los Angeles County.
The area was originally developed as an orchard and a dairy farm which was then known as Sunshine Ranch. In 1916, the first oil well was drilled near what is now the north end of Zelzah Avenue.
It was not until 1926 that Granada Hills was founded as “Granada”. It was another 15 years until the area officially became known as “Granada Hills.”
An Affluent Community
Granada Hills is known as an affluent community with the median household income in 2008 being $83,911. While it was once an agrarian society, today the residents tend to work in blue collar and white collar office jobs.
The Most Common Injuries in the Office
Most assume that the office environment is a safe place to work, but each and every day several office injuries occur here in the Los Angeles area. The top office injuries are:
Research has shown that people are about 2.5X more likely to be injured from a fall in the office than any other injury. Some of the leading hazards which cause workers to fall include:
- Damaged carpeting
- Loose cables
- Boxes and files on the floor
Lifting injuries do not only happen when a large and heavy object is lifted. When lifted incorrectly, light loads including boxes of files or documents can cause a neck or back injury if done incorrectly.
If your workstation is not ergonomic, then you may end up with long-term health issues including eye strain, carpal tunnel syndrome, poor posture and muscle strain.
Workers can be struck by materials collapsing on them, items being dropped on their feet, and objects falling from the tops of cupboards and other high spaces.
Any time you need to push, pull, lift, hold, carry or throw something in the workplace, you are putting yourself at risk of a strain injury.
