California Workers Compensation Lawyers Representing Victims in Canoga Park
The ethnically diverse neighborhood of Canoga Park lies in the San Fernando Valley region in Los Angeles, California. Currently well over 60,000 residents live in the area, though there is proof that Native Americans have been occupying the very same land for approximately 8,000 years.
After the Americans won the Mexican War, the area was converted from being part of a rancho into wheat farms. It was then subdivided once again and part of it was named Owensmouth in 1912. In 1917 the land joined Los Angeles, and then on March 1st of 1931 the area was renamed Canoga Park.
The economy of Canoga Park was initially supported by agriculture. In the mid-20th century, however, a division of North American Aviation, Rocketdyne, moved into the area. This lead to a number of other aerospace companies moving their headquarters to Canoga Park, including Atomics International, Boeing, Teledyne and Thompson Ramo Woolridge-TRW. Several other supporting smaller machine shops and a variety of other ancillary businesses which supported the aerospace industry sprang up as a result.
Injuries in the Aerospace Industry
There are many different processes, operations and materials associated with the aerospace industry. Those who are in airplane repair and maintenance, for example, are often screwing, drilling, welding, fastening and working with dangerous products. Pilots and flight attendants may suffer from other injuries, including anxiety, while airfield operations and air traffic control personnel may be more prone to slip, trip and fall-related accidents.
