In less than a blink of an eye, a life can be irrevocably changed or even lost entirely. Unfortunately, construction sites are no stranger to fatal injuries, and many workers lose their lives every year due to construction accidents. Not only do these events leave California families grieving, but they also often leave families struggling financially.
One family in another state is undoubtedly experiencing numerous hardships after a recent fatal accident. Reports stated that a 28-year-old man was working on a construction site when an undisclosed object fell from a crane. The object hit the worker and resulted in him suffering critical injuries. The man was taken from the scene to a hospital, but a few days later, he succumbed to the traumatic injuries he suffered.
The report stated that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration was investigating the accident. However, at the time of the report, officials did not disclose any details about the fatal incident or what may have caused it. More information may be released once OSHA completes its investigation.
Losing a loved one is never an easy experience. The family of this man will certainly want to find the best ways to handle the issues that result from this sudden hardship. Workers’ compensation may be able to assist this family and the families of California workers who have been killed in construction accidents. Gaining information on survivors’ benefits, how to possibly qualify and the steps involved with applying for these benefits may be useful to interested families.
