Construction worker dies after being injured on the job

Construction workers face a dangerous set of potential injuries at a construction work site. On a daily basis, a construction worker may be presented with a number of dangerous conditions. Despite numerous safety programs and safety regulations, construction workers can still be injured on the job. Injuries can range from heavy lifting to unsafe and defective pieces of construction equipment.

Workers' compensation death benefits may be available to families

A 54-year-old recently fell at his place of employment in California. Unfortunately, paramedics were unable to save his life, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Worker suffers on-the-job injury, falls to death in California

When workers are injured on the job, they are generally entitled to workers' compensation benefits. In order to qualify for workers' compensation benefits, injured workers do not have to show that the employer was negligent in any way. However, should an on-the-job injury occur due to the negligence of a third party associated with the job and work site, the worker may be able to file a separate civil claim -- but will be required to show negligence. When a worker is killed while working, their loved ones are able to pursue the same legal recourse as permitted by California law.

Some industries and occupations are more dangerous than others. Although some in California may not immediately list it among the most dangerous, welding can certainly be a risky occupation.

Man injured on the job after power line shock

This may not come as a shocker to individuals in California, but even the most experienced worker may end up being injured while working due to a variety of circumstances. One person in another state recently was injured on the job after having a run-in with an electrical line. In this case, both the employee and his family may be fearful for the man's physical well-being, as well as for the family finances while he is unable to work.

High temperatures could lead to work injury in California

The incoming beautiful and warm California weather can mean that more people will be outdoors enjoying their spring time activities. However, it also means that high temperatures can pose a safety hazard for individuals who work outdoors. Working in high temperatures can easily result in a work injury, and it is best for employers to take proper steps to protect their workers.
