Work accidents can happen in any kind of job in California. Some of these accidents can lead to serious injuries and death. Of course, those in more dangerous types of employment will bear a greater risk of being in an accident. For families who receive that unexpected call that a loved one was killed in a work accident, they are frequently unaware of what to do. To make certain they are protected, having legal assistance is imperative to receive compensation.
A construction worker working on a project at a high school died in an accident. The project was for a new shop building at the school. The man was taken via air for treatment after the accident and died the next day. The California Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the incident. The investigation into the accident is ongoing.
People who work construction take pride in their work while understanding that there are significant risks involved in it. Those risks include being stationed at heights, handling large items, manipulating complicated tools, being close to large vehicles and more. Regardless, no one leaves for work thinking they will suffer fatal injuries. Their families certainly do not think that it is the last time they will see their loved one. Unfortunately, these accidents do happen, and people will be confronted with costs and problems after the fact
If a family has suffered a loss from a workplace accident, they should contact a law firm with experience in helping clients in high risk occupations.
