Worker in critical condition after construction injury

On Behalf of | Dec 18, 2018 | Construction Workers' Accidents

Most California employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance in case a worker or multiple workers are injured on the job. This insurance can often help injured parties obtain financial assistance with medical bills and other monetary struggles that result from an on-the-job accident. Often, a construction injury can lead to needing this type of benefit.

One individual in a nearby state may be looking into his ability to gain such compensation after recently suffering injuries on the job. Reports stated that the man was a construction worker, and he was trying to remove a stand-alone structure. However, before he was able to successfully complete his duties, the structure collapsed on top of him. It was unclear exactly what type of structure was involved or whether there were any other workers assisting the man at the time of the accident.

The man was trapped under the structure, but firefighters were able to get him out. He was taken to an area hospital, and he was considered to be in critical condition. Exact details on the injuries he suffered were not given in the report. 

When a construction injury leaves a person in critical condition, the worker will undoubtedly have a long road ahead when it comes to recovery. As mentioned, the financial toll of such a situation can be significant, and California workers facing such hardships may need assistance in addressing the monetary ramifications. Though workers’ compensation can often help, it is not always easy to obtain benefits. Fortunately, legal assistance could help interested individuals work through the application process and handle any roadblocks along the way.
