Two-vehicle collision in Riverside CountyWatsonville, CA (July 24, 2018) – A 61 year old man named Mark Odle is dead after being run over by a tractor in Watsonville.  Odle, an employee of Monterey Mushrooms Royal Oaks, was apparently working at a job site on Monday morning around 11:00 am when the accident occurred.  The accident took place on Maher Road near Echo Valley Road.

Los Angeles Workplace Accident Attorneys

We extend our sympathies to the family or Mark Odle in this tragic accident.  Workplace accidents are common at job sites across California. Certain professions, including construction work, carry an inherent risk of personal danger.   Other dangerous jobs include factory workers, police officers and firefighters.  These individuals literally put their life and livelihoods on the line when they report to work each day.

When a workplace accident occurs, both the worker and those who depend on them must look to the law for help.  Los Angeles workers compensation laws provide benefits to injured workers, including:

  • Medical Payments
  • Temporary Disability
  • Permanent Disability
  • Lost Income
  • Vocational Rehabilitation.

These benefits can be immeasurable when you are facing an uncertain future due to a sudden on-the-job injury.  Workers compensation law is complicated and should never be handled on your own.  If you make even a single mistake, you could be jeopardizing your entire claim and your right to receive benefits.

If you or a loved have been seriously injured in a Los Angeles workplace accident, you need a strong and aggressive workers compensation attorney.   At the Los Angeles Injury Group, our team is experienced in workplace accidents and is dedicated to resolving your case.  We will not stop until you are satisfied with the results.
