Construction injury results from accident with machinery

On Behalf of | Sep 17, 2018 | Construction Workers' Accidents

Training is an important aspect of any job, especially when a person will be using machinery and other equipment. Of course, even if training is provided, mistakes can happen or equipment can malfunction. Unfortunately, a construction injury can easily result when this type of predicament occurs.

California readers may be interested in a construction accident that recently took place in another state. Reports indicated that a worker had been using a construction vehicle that is apparently used to lift objects, and one of the lift arms on the machine lowered on top of the man. At the time of the report, it was not clear whether the vehicle malfunctioned or if the man had activated it.

The incident resulted in the man suffering serious injuries, and he was considered to be in critical condition. He was reported as being 49 years old. A medical helicopter was utilized to take the man to the hospital where he was scheduled for surgery to address his injuries. The report stated that the incident was still under investigation, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration would likely play a role in the investigation.

When a construction injury results from an issue with machinery, it is common for the harm to be severe, as with this case. If California workers suffer serious injuries on the job due to equipment issues or other problems, they may want to understand their options for potentially qualifying for workers’ compensation. These benefits can help address certain financial struggles that may stem from injury-causing accidents that take place at work.
