Man falls and is seriously hurt in construction site accident

It is generally known that construction work in California and throughout the nation can be dangerous for workers. One of the biggest risks these workers face is falling from a significant height, but there are numerous dangerous situations in construction jobs. For people who have been hurt and are facing the prospect of missing extended time on the job due to injuries and will have medical bills, workers' compensation benefits can be a lifeline.

According to reports, a construction worker suffered multiple injuries when he fell from a crane recently. He was reported to have fallen approximately 40 feet and the accident occurred on a weekend afternoon. The man was stationed on a platform atop a crane. He fell because of a pin that became dislodged. He landed on the ground and several co-workers witnessed the incident. After he fell, he was found unconscious and had broken bones. He was taken to the hospital and reported to be in critical condition.

Construction workers are aware of the dangers they face, but that does not mean they are not entitled to workers' compensation benefits after an accident. Employers are responsible for worker safety and if there is an injury, a key part of the investigation is determining if all the proper procedures were followed. To be fully protected in case injuries occur, workers' compensation is essential. It can help workers receive a portion of their pay and cover for medical costs they suffered while working. They can even receive long-term payments if they cannot return to work. Still, there can be issues preventing them from maximizing their benefits or getting approved at all.

Whether the accident was a fall, a construction vehicle incident, a fire, an explosion, a co-worker's mistake or negligence on the part of the employer, it is crucial to think about the future and covering for expenses in the near and long-term with workers' compensation benefits.
