Man suffers critical workplace injuries leading to amputation

On Behalf of | Jul 2, 2019 | Workplace Injuries

When a sudden workplace accident occurs in California or elsewhere, a sudden scramble could result. Individuals may wonder what happened as they try to get help to those injured, and everyone involved may feel shaken by the ordeal. Unfortunately, workplace injuries can prove severe in some cases, and the affected workers may have their lives changed forever.

One worker in another state recently experienced a life-changing accident while on the job. According to reports, the man suffered critical injuries after a commercial refrigeration line at a grocery store ruptured. It was unclear what work-related duties the man may have been carrying out when the accident occurred. At first, individuals believed that an explosion had taken place, but first responders discovered the line rupture. All employees and customers were evacuated after the incident.

The worker was taken to an area hospital and was considered to be in critical condition. The incident resulted in doctors having to amputate his left leg, and it was noted that he will require additional surgeries. The report also mentioned that the man has five children. The incident was still under investigation at the time of the report, and more information may be made available at a later time.

It is an unfortunate reality that sudden work-related accidents can lead to such severe injuries. California residents who have suffered serious workplace injuries may wonder how they will cope moving forward. In many cases, workers’ compensation benefits may be able to help with resulting financial burdens, but obtaining necessary benefits is not always easy. As a result, affected individuals may want to work with attorneys experienced in this type of law to work toward obtaining the financial assistance they deserve.
