When most people think of dangerous occupations, they likely think of jobs with inherent dangers, such as fighting fires or apprehending criminals. However, all occupations hold some degree of risk of injury. In fact, construction accidents frequently leave people in California suffering from serious injuries or grieving the unexpected loss of a loved one. One recent out-of-state incident demonstrates the potential harm that construction workers face on a day-to-day basis.
The incident involved a 41-year-old man. Reports indicate that the man was under a vehicle as he attempted to attach a tractor to it. He allegedly told another worker to start the vehicle, but was ran over when it gained traction.
