Construction accidents can quickly cause fatal, serious injuries

On Behalf of | Sep 10, 2019 | Construction Workers' Accidents

Workers’ compensation is a benefit that many people are glad that they have access to but hope that they never need. Unfortunately, numerous workers in California and across the country suffer serious and fatal injuries in construction accidents and other events all too often. When these incidents occur, information on workers’ comp is commonly needed.

Multiple people in another state may be looking into these benefits after a recent construction accident. According to reports, a crew was working to build a four-story residential building, and while workers were on the second floor, a collapse occurred that resulted in multiple workers being trapped beneath debris from the third floor. Firefighters came to the scene in order to rescue the trapped workers.

The incident resulted in one worker being crushed and suffering fatal injuries. At least two others were also seriously injured, and another three suffered harm. At the time of the report, it was unclear what exactly caused the collapse. Additional information may become available at a later time as investigations into the fatal incident likely take place.

Though workers and employers want to do their best to avoid construction accidents, they do happen. When the outcomes are similar to this one, families of deceased workers and surviving injured workers may need help. In particular, they may need financial assistance through workers’ compensation as they address the negative repercussions of such serious events. Because injured California workers and family members of deceased workers undoubtedly have a lot on their minds already, they may wish to enlist legal support to help them apply for workers’ comp benefits.
