California Workers Compensation Lawyers Representing Victims in Sun Valley
Sun Valley lies in the San Fernando Valley region near the city of Los Angeles. The neighborhood was nameless when State Senator Charles Maclay acquired the area in 1874, but in 1948 the residents changed the name to Sun Valley.
Sun Valley is known as being fairly ethnically diverse. What also sets it apart from many other communities in the area is that it has a youthful population with the median age of residents being 28.
Workplaces Riskier for Young Workers
Young workers are at a greater risk of suffering an illness or injury in the workplace for a number of reasons:
- Younger workers have little experience with workplace hazards. Inexperience means that these workers are less able to predict the outcome of their actions (or the actions of others)
- Younger workers lead more hectic lives. These workers are often juggling school obligations, social obligations, sports, hobbies, and work all at the same time
- Young workers are unfamiliar with appropriate workplace behaviors. Young workers are less familiar with how to identify workplace hazards, assess harm, and ask who they should speak with about any safety concerns. They are also less likely to adhere to safety rules
- Young workers are overly confident in their physical abilities. Younger people tend to take their youth, stamina, and strength for granted which unfortunately makes them more prone to injury. While a more experienced worker may know that they must bend at the knees to lift a box, for example, a young person will bend and twist at the waist, significantly increasing his or her chance of suffering a workplace injury
- Young workers are unfamiliar with their rights. Because they have likely received little to no training in workplace rights, and have likely not been injured at work before, younger workers have little to no knowledge about their workplace entitlements
