Most people do not plan on becoming injured. Though some individuals may have emergency funds saved in case such an issue arises, suffering serious injuries could still lead to financial difficulties. Construction accidents can often result in severe trauma as materials, equipment and other factors can pose serious hazards. Unfortunately, many workers suffer due to such incidents.

Work accident may warrant injury claim for benefits

Individuals who work in construction often know that a sudden accident could take place at any time. In some cases, the incidents occur due to outside factors, and serious injuries could result. When construction workers have to carry out duties on or near roadways, they are at a considerable risk of being struck by cars, and when workers are hurt as a result, they may wish to file an injury claim for workers' compensation.

Construction accidents may cause injuries, financial challenges

The risks that a person faces while on the job can vary depending on the type of  occupation he or she has.

Construction workers are at high risk for injury due to the work environment and the nature of the job. Over the years, safety regulations have been implemented that allow workers to be safer while on the job site. Safety gear such as harness may not prevent falls, but they mean the difference between a recoverable injury and death. In California, a recent news story reports on a construction injury caused by a fall on the job site. 

Fatal construction injury was preventable -- companies cited

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health outline specific guidelines for working in confined spaces. Without the proper safety precautions, a fatal construction injury could occur. When that happens, Cal/OSHA comes in, conducts an investigation and determines whether any citations against one or more companies are appropriate.

As California moves into summer, the concern over heat-related illnesses take center stage. Employers are required to provide workers with the means to prevent such illnesses, but sometimes it just is not enough. However, employers might be able to spare many employees from getting overheated and also lower the number of construction injury claims related thereto.

Constructing an injury claim after an accident

California construction companies are required to ensure the safety of their workers. They must provide the appropriate safety equipment and training for the job workers perform. Despite the safety of the work environment, accidents can and do happen. Most employees know about workers' compensation, but when it comes to filing an injury claim, they might not know how to get the benefits they need.
