Transportation incidents, falls commonly cause workplace injuries

Earning a living is not an easy task for many workers in California and across the country. They may work long and difficult hours in jobs they are not entirely happy with, and many work in dangerous conditions. In fact, numerous workers face risks of workplace injuries every day they are on the job.

When it comes to common fatal accidents, transportation incidents account for the majority in various industries. Lawn service, landscaping, construction, farming and agricultural work, trucking, recyclable materials collecting, pilots and flight engineers, and fishing work all see transportation incidents as the most common cause of fatal accidents on the job. Unfortunately, an average of 20 to 77 workers out of 100,000 full-time workers suffer fatal injuries on the job in these industries.

Additionally, slips, trips and falls account for the most common cause of fatal accidents in other industries. Roofing, steel working and structural iron working see numerous fatal accidents resulting from slips, trips and falls. Of course, numerous workers have jobs in these and the aforementioned professions, which puts them at substantial risk of serious or fatal injuries while on the job.

Workplace injuries are a serious matter in any profession. Hopefully, if California workers are injured on the job, they do not suffer fatal outcomes. Still, some fatal incidents are unavoidable, and surviving loved ones may be left wondering what to do. In the event of an injury-causing accident on the job, injured workers and surviving family members of fatally injured workers may have reason to seek financial assistance through workers’ compensation claims.
