Construction workers have highly demanding and dangerous jobs. They need to ensure that they are properly carrying out their work-related duties while also trying to remain as safe as possible. Of course, construction accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, and falls are among the most common types of injury-causing incidents.
California readers may be interested in a recent accident that left a construction worker in another state seriously injured. According to reports, the man was working on a demolition and construction site when the accident occurred. The worker was on the roof of a structure when he fell through and landed 30 feet below. Multiple projects are apparently taking place on the site, and it was unclear which structure the man may have been on when he fell.
Unfortunately, the incident resulted in what was described as major trauma to the worker. He was airlifted from the site by medical personnel. The worker’s age and identity were not known at the time of the report, and details of his exact injuries and condition were not given. More information may become available at a later time.
Construction accidents involving falls can easily lead to severe injuries to workers. Whether they fall several feet or have a same-level fall, the injuries they suffer can have lasting effects. If California workers are injured on the job due to falls, they may want to remember that workers’ compensation could help them handle the financial difficulties stemming from the incident. Compensation for medical bills and lost wages may be possible as well as other benefits.
