The construction industry often has the ability to keep numerous individuals employed. However, individuals in this industry also face serious risks of suffering injuries that could potentially end their careers, or even their lives. Unfortunately, workplace injuries are not uncommon on construction sites, and individuals may find themselves in need of financial assistance after suffering an accident.
California residents may be interested in an accident that recently led to injuries in another state. Reports indicated that a man was working on a three-story apartment complex when the incident occurred. Roof trusses reportedly fell and landed on the man, which resulted in undisclosed injuries. It was not mentioned that any other workers suffered injuries in the incident.
The man was apparently working on the roof at the time of the event as a ladder truck had to be used in order to get him down. He was then transported to an area medical center in order to receive treatment for injuries. His condition was listed as stable at the time of the report. His age and identifying aspects were not disclosed in the provided information.
Workplace injuries can range in severity, and while this individual may be lucky to be alive, others are not so fortunate. For California workers who have been hurt on the job or for families who have lost loved ones due to construction accidents, information on workers’ compensation may be useful. These benefits could help with financial challenges during this already difficult time. Interested parties may wish to speak with knowledgeable attorneys regarding their options for seeking benefits, how to apply and how to address any issues that may come about.
