Construction accidents can lead to life-threatening injuries

Working in construction is not typically considered a glamorous job. In fact, many people likely do not often think about construction workers at all. However, these individuals work in one of the most hazardous industries, and construction accidents leave numerous individuals injured every year.

California readers may be interested in an accident that recently took place in another state. According to reports, one member of a construction crew was driving a dump truck when it overturned. Details on what exactly caused the accident were not given in the report, but it was noted that the driver was inside a caged portion of the truck when it overturned and landed upside down. Photos from the scene show the truck with wheels in the air in a dirt-covered area.

The worker who was inside the truck at the time was reported as being in his 30s. The incident resulted in his suffering life-threatening injuries, and he was airlifted from the scene to an area hospital. Authorities were continuing to investigate the accident at the time of the report, and additional information may become available at a later time.

When construction accidents take place, the resulting injuries can vary in severity. Unfortunately, as this case shows, it is possible for life-threatening injuries to be an outcome. If California construction workers suffer this type of harm in the course of their work-related duties, they may be able to qualify for workers' compensation. Of course, obtaining these benefits is not always easy, so it may be prudent for affected workers to consult with attorneys experienced in this area of law.
