Construction accidents involving falls can prove fatal

Falls are among the most common and most dangerous hazards on work sites. Construction accidents in particular often involve serious falls as California workers are commonly carrying out duties at significant heights. Any simple misstep or lapse in safety measures could lead to construction accidents that have serious or even deadly outcomes.

It was recently reported that a fatal event took place on a construction site out of state. Apparently, a construction worker was standing on an elevated platform while working and somehow fell off the platform. Details were not provided regarding what may have caused the man to fall. The report did state that the worker fell approximately 20 to 30 feet before hitting the ground. It was not clear whether any other workers were on the platform at the time the man fell.

Emergency crews came to the scene, and the worker was airlifted to the hospital. Unfortunately, he succumbed to the injuries he suffered and was declared dead. He was reported as being 60 years old. The incident was under investigation at the time of the report, and more details may be revealed at a later time.

When construction accidents result in workers losing their lives, it can be devastating for families, friends and co-workers. For families, the hardships may not end with their overwhelming grief. They may also experience financial difficulties due to funeral expenses, the loss of income, any medical bills from final treatment and similar strains resulting from the work-related accident. In these cases, workers' compensation may be able to help qualifying California families pay for these costs.
