Injured California worker may qualify for workers’ compensation

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

When drivers do not exercise caution, they can put themselves and other people at risk. In particular, roadway workers could be at risk of suffering injuries on the job due to erratic drivers. This type of incident is not uncommon, and many workers find themselves in need of workers’ compensation.

It was recently reported that a California Department of Transportation worker was injured in such an incident. According to reports, the man was working on the right shoulder of an Interstate 80 ramp when a van hit a semi-truck while changing lanes. The collision caused the van to spin and hit the worker and his work truck that was parked nearby. The van then hit a light pole and a sound wall.

The worker was lying on the ground after being hit by the van, and the light pole fell on top of him after the van hit it. The worker suffered major but unspecified injuries as a result of the incident. He was reported as being 32 years old. It was not mentioned whether any other workers were in the same area at the time of the accident.

The man injured in this California accident may have a considerable amount of work ahead of him as he recovers from his injuries. He may also have some mental and emotional turmoil as he considers the stress of missing work and having to address medical bills. However, he may be able to qualify for workers’ compensation, which could help him address the financial difficulties that result from this accident.
