Many people in Los Angeles work in the construction industry. As a result, those same people are at risk of suffering serious injuries as a result of construction accidents. Even when workers do their best to remain safe on work sites, sudden events can take place that leave them needing assistance in more ways than one.
It was recently reported that a serious construction accident took place in another state. Apparently, three workers were injured when debris from the third floor of a building fell to the ground floor. The workers were on the ground floor at the time and were hit by the debris. One worker suffered critical injuries, and he, unfortunately, did not survive. The two other workers’ injuries were not deemed life-threatening.
At the time of the report, it was unclear what may have caused the debris to fall. It was also not mentioned what type of construction activities were taking place at the time of the accident. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration was called to the scene to conduct an investigation. Additional information on the incident may become available at a later time.
Construction accidents happen far too often and have devastating outcomes. Unfortunately, risks are part of this type of job. Still, Los Angeles workers who suffer injuries as a result of such incidents and family members of workers who were killed often need help due to the outcomes of these events. Commonly, workers’ compensation can help with certain financial aspects of the hardships that workers and their families may face after injury-causing and fatal accidents.
