Three employees injured by 2000 pounds of falling debris

The construction industry is known to have a high rate of danger and accident risk associated with it. By its very nature, California construction workers are often in precarious situations, at extreme heights or manipulating heavy items or machinery. A single construction accident can result in serious injury or even death. Common accidents involve defective tools, crushes or falls. Injured workers can be in need of workers’ compensation or other help in the wake of their injuries. Sometimes the reason for an accident is easy to identify and other times investigations are more complex.

Concerns abound for workplace accident death rate

California employees deserve the right to know that their workplaces are safe and that they can perform their jobs without complication. Sadly, that is not always the case as an on-the-job accident can happen at any time. Such workplace accidents can lead to long-term disabilities, other serious injuries or even deaths. Injured workers may need to file for workers’ compensation to help accommodate the loss of wages and increased medical bills.

When an employee is involved in an accident on the job, concern for individual safety and the prevention of future incidents is natural. Many Californians face the risk of an on-the-job accident on a daily basis, especially in certain business sectors such as industrial or construction. Some accidents may be minor while others can result in serious injury or even death. Falling debris, a slip and fall or a trench collapse are just some examples of common incidents on job sites.

No matter what type of accident occurs, whether it’s a construction worker accident, or any other type of accident, the person or persons that are injured should be able to receive workers' compensation.
