Making Accident Claims for Workplace or Occupational Injuries

The Organic Law on Prevention, Conditions and Environment (LOPCYMAT) applies to accidents at work and occupational diseases. Ask our readers: what is the legal definition of an accident at work?

Answer: any event that causes the employee a functional or bodily harm. Means permanent or even limited-time order immediately or at a later date; It includes the fact of death. It must be a circumstance that is the effect of a particular action or occurrence.

But the Law always expected to be an event to mark the work that lends or in connection with the task performed. Therefore accidents are those that occur during the day or during the hours of work. Indeed, it is an accident at work which the worker suffers in the performance of their duties, that is, on the way to and from their workplace (office or address of the company listed as the employer). The law requires that there chronological and topography agreement in the course of the work or performance, unless another use for reasons not attributable to the worker (Heuristic the Law of Obligations) causes.

As trial accident claims lawyers in this area of labor law in Venezuela, we recognize that the issue of claims for damages for accidents at work is complex. First is to emphasize that the complaining victim must exercise their rights immediately. Different happens to have and analyze the legal concept of occupational disease. The LOPCYMAT establishes that are incurred or aggravated during work, or exposure to disease states through work. This includes action effects and mechanical physical agents, biological agents or emotional factors, they manifest an organic, functional or mental injury, temporary or even permanent imbalance. It is important to note that the LOPCYMAT regulates the legal presumption of occupational type .

As presumed occupational origin, pathological states included in the list of occupational diseases listed in the technical rules of the law under study and then are added by the Ministry. To occupational diseases progressive order, the liability of the remains patron.

Our contribution lies in informing the victim of an accident, whether transit, air, sea or operator, and accidents caused professional liability (medical, or construction or engineering), that for the payment of compensation for damages, the employer must sue within the respective legal opportunity.

Elected Offices From Border States Speak Out Against Corker-Hoeven Amendment

Amendment is a Non-Starter for Border Communities

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 20, 2013 — CAMBIO, the Campaign for an Accountable, Moral, and Balanced Immigration Overhaul, released statements from local elected officials from border states in response to the Amendment offered by Sens. Corker and Hoeven, which calls for an additional 20,000 border patrol agents, increased drone surveillance, and an additional 700 miles of border fencing at an estimated cost of $48 billion over 10 years.

Border Overkill Not Security

Senate Deal Threatens Communities

CAMBIO, the Campaign for Accountable, Moral and Balanced Immigration Overhaul, urges the U.S. Senate to reject the proposed border enforcement compromise that will affect millions of people living in the region.
Christian Ramirez, Director of the Southern Border Communities Coalition on behalf of CAMBIO, said:

“This compromise represents a bad deal for border communities and the American people. It is nothing less than an empty promise of border security and an extreme, excessive and expensive political calculation. This is a backroom political deal at the expense of the millions of Americans living in our border communities.”

CAMBIO believes the following elements are essential to responsible enforcement activity in the border region:

  • Monitor Use of Force: Equip all 20,000+ border agents with lapel cameras to deter abuse, protect against unfounded allegations of abuse, and restore trust in agents.
  • Keep Border Patrol at the Border: Exclude urban and other sensitive areas from drone and other invasive surveillance.
  • Protect 4th Amendment Rights in the Southwest: Reduce existing power without a warrant granted to CBP from 100 to 25 miles to board vehicles, and from 25 to 10 miles to enter onto private property (not dwellings) with sector-by-sector exceptions where DHS can justify the exception.
  • Mitigate Migrant Deaths: Deploy 1,000 distress beacons in the desert to save migrants and others who fall into distress because of heat and other circumstances.
  • Strengthen Border Oversight Task Force: Add subpoena power and limit Border Patrol role on Task Force to avoid conflict of interest.
  • Modernize and Staff Ports of Entry: Our southern land ports are the nation’s cash register facilitating trade with Mexico that is driving our regional and national economy and creating jobs.

Every day in America, 1,500 fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and friends are taken away and locked up by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Detention and deportation has devastated too many homes by tearing families apart.

It’s Time to Take Action. Tell your Senators to help keep families together.

OUR VIEW

 

Due Process

It’s time to restore common sense to our immigration laws, fairness to our detention system, and discretion to removal procedures.

End the indefinite and arbitrary detention of immigrants. It’s not fair and it’s not right.

Ban racial profiling by federal, state and local police and law enforcement agencies.

End the Department of Homeland Security detention quota system: Rounding up immigrants just to fill beds is a waste of taxpayer resources.
Judges should have the ability to weigh all of the circumstances of a case – seriousness, age, and time served – before making a judgment. Don’t tie the hands of justice.

Immigrants should have a fair day in court, and access to appointed counsel, to make their case.

Did You Know?

Immigrants – both with and without papers – can currently be held indefinitely without seeing a judge and without a right to legal representation.

The Department of Homeland Security has a 34,000 bed quota to jail immigrants each night. This quota comes with a price tag of $2 billion each year, and taxpayers foot the bill. Many of these detainees are mothers, fathers, minors, and victims of abuse who have done nothing wrong but pursue the American dream.

Thousands of fast-track deportations and expedited removal orders are given each day to long-term immigrants – giving them no recourse to appeal, even when they have a path to citizenship available to them.

Border Security & Enforcement

Congress is pushing border policies that are extreme, expensive and excessive as well as threaten the rights and security of communities across the country.

If enacted, these policies will threaten the domestic security of communities across the country and undermine the economic recovery of our nation.

To spend tax payer money on unworkable and failed strategies, moves the immigration debate away from common-sense and comprehensive immigration overhaul.

Road to Citizenship

We need a workable system that encourages people to get on the road to citizenship. High fees and penalties will threaten any immigration reform effort.

  • We should remove unnecessary, arbitrary, capricious, and unfair roadblocks on the road to citizenship.
  • Citizenship should not be auctioned off to the highest bidder. That is not what America is all about.
  • A crime is not suddenly worse if it is committed by an immigrant. The definition of what is “aggravated” or “serious” needs to be fixed so it is consistent with the American justice system.
  • Immigrants deserve fair process and proper court appeal reviews for determining eligibility for citizenship with a court review for denials.
  • Ensure that fees are reasonable so that any eligible and hard-working immigrant can pursue citizenship.
  • Workers should be protected if they speak out against exploitation or abuse. If these immigrant workers are not protected, the bad actors will never be punished and the system will never improve.

Did you know?

  • The filing fees to apply for a green card are currently $595 – which is more than someone earning minimum wage makes in two weeks. Representation from attorneys, who are needed to successfully navigate the complex application process, range in the thousands of dollars.
  • Immigrants who currently speak up against labor abuses by employers are often deported without any follow up on their original labor complaint.
  • There are thousands of children in state- and locally-funded foster systems displaced by the deportation of their primary caretakers. Parents lose the ability to place their own children with relatives when they are placed in deportation proceedings.

Immigrant Workers’ Rights

Immigrant workers, like all workers, should be able to stand up for fair treatment without fear of being separated from their families. Immigration reform efforts should make protecting those rights a priority, regardless of any worker’s immigration status.

Exploiting immigrant labor is bad for business, bad for workers, bad for consumers and bad for the free market.

Workers who are abused by employers should feel free to report those violations of law without fear of being deported. Federal immigration enforcement should not interfere with investigations into violations of labor laws.

We do not support the use of biometric data, which will lead to privacy and civil liberty violations.

We have deep concerns about mandatory use of electronic employment eligibility verification systems like E-Verify.

Did you know?

E-Verify will affect every working American in the country – regardless of immigration status. This will cause more than one million citizens and work authorized immigrants to contact a government agency or lose their jobs.
