California Workers Compensation Lawyers Representing Victims in San Fernando
The city of San Fernando in Los Angeles County is completely surrounded by the City of Los Angeles and is one of the few towns which retained its independence from the city. As of the 2010 US Census there were nearly 24,000 individuals living in the area with the median household income being $55,192.
Originally the San Fernando was dominated by middle-class Caucasians. But as the area continues to transform it is becoming increasingly ethnically and economically diverse.
The Most Common Workplace Injuries in California
In San Fernando, the leading employers according to the city’s 2009 annual financial report were:
- The Los Angeles Unified School District
- JT Contractors

Though the types of jobs are widespread, the majority of Californian workers filed workers’ compensation claims for injuries due to:
- Slipping and falling (41%)
- Other reasons (21%)
- Car or machinery accident (16%)
- Being struck by an object (15%)
- Lifting (7%)
The majority of workplace injuries are one-time accidents (66%). But over one-quarter (28%) of these injuries were due to repetitive stress, and 6% of claims filed were due to workplace stress.
What to Do If There Is a Delay in Your Case
One of the most common complaints of an injured worker is that workers’ compensation process is taking too long. This may be due to a number of reasons, including:
- Ongoing medical treatment
