No one wants to suffer an on-the-job injury. Unfortunately, any working individual in California could face the risk of ending up injured due to work-related hazards. In the event that this does take place, the circumstances of the event could potentially qualify individuals for workers’ compensation benefits, which often prove useful during the aftermath of such an incident.
One man in another state will likely be looking into more information regarding workers’ comp after recently being injured on the job. Reports stated that the man works for an extermination company and had been on location at a complex that was undergoing renovations. While carrying out his duties, the man was near a stairwell when part of the stairwell collapsed.
It was unclear whether the collapse caused the man to fall or whether he was injured by falling debris. Nonetheless, he reportedly suffered a leg injury as a result of the incident.
At the time of the report, his exact condition was not known. More information regarding the event and the man’s injuries may become available at a later time. Any type of work-related injury can cause major setbacks.
As this case shows, factors that are outside a worker’s control could easily lead to an injury-causing accident. If California workers have suffered injuries in the course of their work-related duties, they may want to find out how workers’ compensation could help.
Financial struggles after an injury are not uncommon, and medical bills and lost wages due to time away from work during recovery can prove burdensome. If parties qualify, workers’ comp may be able to help address some of those financial concerns.
