Workplace injuries result when car wash worker gets pinned

On Behalf of | Mar 25, 2019 | Workplace Injuries

Most California residents go to work thinking it will be a normal day. They may look forward to the end of the day when they can do whatever they want or may look forward to socializing with their co-workers throughout the day. What many people do not anticipate, however, is suffering workplace injuries.

It was recently reported that a worker in another state had to be airlifted to an area hospital after an on-the-job accident. Apparently, the woman works at a car wash and was injured when two vehicles collided. One of the vehicles was leaving the wash area when it hit the back of a parked vehicle. The worker was between the parked vehicle and the moving vehicle when the incident occurred.

She became pinned between the two vehicles, and she suffered serious injuries as a result. Her exact condition was not known at the time of the report. Authorities are looking into the incident, and additional information may be available at a later time. It did not appear that any other workers were involved or injured in this event.

As this case shows, even jobs that many people would not necessarily consider dangerous can lead to serious workplace injuries when an accident occurs. Really, any occupation poses hazards to workers, and if injuries do result, individuals may have reason to look into potentially seeking workers’ compensation. Benefits provided by this insurance could help injured California workers and those elsewhere obtain financial assistance and other help during and after the recovery process.
