Representing Injured Workers Since 1955

Investigation underway after accident injures three workers

Anytime a work-related injury occurs in the Los Angeles area, or anywhere else, there are several things that have to be determined, including all the aspects of workers’ compensation. 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.

Despite three construction workers being injured at a job site in Sacramento, recently, the construction project reportedly continues to move forward, as though nothing happened. An investigation is underway into the incident that left three people injured, but work has continued as normal on the project.

The accident happened when a semi truck drove through the work zone and apparently hit a piece of wood that one of the workers was carrying. The piece of wood went flying and hit three men. All three went to the hospital but their conditions were not reported. However two men have since been released. According to the safety manager on the project, the crew does have enough room to work and therefore the project has continued.

If any or all of these men loses any time on the job because of their injuries then they should be entitled to workers’ compensation. Likewise, if you have been hurt in any kind of work-related job accident, then you too should be eligible for compensation. If you are having a difficult time receiving worker’s compensation then you might want to speak with a workers’ comp lawyer today.
