Workplace injuries affect man after construction accident

On Behalf of | Aug 13, 2018 | Workers' Compensation

While individuals often anticipate pain and physical difficulties after suffering an injury, they may also need to pay attention to financial troubles that could arise. If individuals suffer workplace injuries, workers’ compensation may be able to help with these financial difficulties. However, California workers will need to apply and obtain approval before receiving benefits.

One man in another state may soon start the process for obtaining workers’ comp after a recent accident. Reports stated that the man was working as part of a construction crew and was dismantling an interior wall of a tower building. Details on how the accident happened were not given in the report. It was initially thought that the wall collapsed, but that was apparently not the case. It did not appear that any other workers were injured in the event.

The man suffered an injury to his leg, and it was not disclosed how severe the injury was. However, a spokesperson for the fire department did say that the injury was not considered life-threatening. The man’s age was not given in the report nor was additional information on his condition. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

Many California workers may have witnessed their co-workers suffering workplace injuries and hope that it never happens to them. Unfortunately, no one is immune to being involved in a work-related accident. Parties who are hurt on the job and need financial assistance may find it wise to gain information on workers’ compensation and whether they may qualify for assistance during this difficult time.
