6.1 earthquake this Sunday night has awaken Bay Area at 3:20AM. Some of the people got injured and have been hospitalized.  

Had the quake hit during the day when most businesses are open the employees could have been injured at work and the employers could have been responsible for their injuries. There is no legal precedent as to whether workers compensation insurance would cover those injuries resulted from the quake, however, it is quite likely.

Even though the quake is over there is still a possibility of aftershocks and precautions must be taken. If you are an employer and you are reading this article, please double check your workers compensation insurance policy to make sure it is current and active.
