California construction accidents: Man dies after fall

Construction plays an important role in the economy of California. It typically indicates growth, expansion and employment.

A construction worker was seriously injured in an accident on the evening of Nov. 13 at a work site along state Highway 4 in Antioch. The worker suffered a severe leg injury during the accident, which ultimately required amputation of the limb.

Employee compensation following construction injury accidents

All California employers are required by law to provide a nonhazardous environment for their employees, yet accidents still occur. This is especially true in the construction industry, where injuries may be caused by dangerous site conditions, heavy equipment, construction tools or repetitive motion required by the work. Those who have been injured while working construction may not even know who is responsible, which can make pursuit of workers' compensation benefits more difficult.
