Workplace injuries result after worker falls from moving trailer

In some industries, workers complete projects by moving slowly from one point to another. Though vehicles may be used to move to each point, some California workers and those elsewhere may not feel the need to get inside the vehicle or their jobs may require them to stay outside the vehicle. However, moving vehicles always pose safety risks, and workplace injuries could result from incidents involving such equipment.

A moving truck and trailer were recently involved in an injury-causing accident in another state. Reports indicated that a worker struck his head after falling from the moving trailer. He and another worker were apparently riding on the trailer rather than inside the vehicle. The other worker did not fall and did not suffer any injuries in the incident.

The individuals work for a paving contractor and were presumably riding on the trailer in the course of their work-related duties. However, the injury the man suffered to his head has put him in life-threatening condition. It was not mentioned why the workers were riding on the back of the trailer, and the accident was still under investigation at the time of the report.

Workplace injuries that prove life-threatening can cause a number of problems for those injured and their families. Often, financial hardships stem from such incidents, and California workers often wonder how they will contend with these consequences. Fortunately, workers' compensation insurance may be able to help qualifying individuals in a variety of ways, including providing compensation for medical bills and lost wages.
