Broken limbs may warrant workers' compensation

Often, California residents and those elsewhere simply accept the hazards of their jobs. After all, they need their employment, and if they are careful and abide by the safety guidelines, they will likely avoid any serious accidents and injuries. Of course, not all aspects of a job can be controlled, and some individuals may need workers' compensation after a work-related accident.

One worker in another state may be needing these financial benefits after being injured on the job. According to reports, the man was an electric line worker, and while he was working with a crew to repair a line along the interstate, a passing vehicle struck the line and caused the man to fall. It was not reported how far the man fell as a result of the incident.

The event did cause the worker to suffer a broken arm. Reports indicated that a person living nearby took the worker to an ambulance, which then transported him to an area hospital. A statement from the electricity company indicated that the man was a subcontractor and that he received treatment for his injuries and was sent home.

Broken bones can considerably hinder a person's ability to do his or her job. If California workers suffer broken arms or other limbs as the result of a work-related injury, they may be unable to work for some time. Fortunately, if an on-the-job accident does have such outcomes, individuals may be able to qualify for workers' compensation benefits that could provide much-needed financial assistance as they recover from their injuries.
