Construction workers’ accidents: Man killed in crane accident

Many people in California are unaware of the number of risks they may face in their everyday lives. While some can take extra precautions to stay safe, a dangerous accident cannot always be anticipated or avoided. For example, thousands of workers face injury in construction workers’ accidents every day they report to work. One out-of-state worker has recently been killed in such an accident involving a crane.

The accident happened one afternoon in late January. A 45-year-old man was working approximately six stories from the ground when a piece of a crane fell, landing on his chest. His co-workers worked to free him, but it reportedly took some time before they could access the man.

When rescue workers arrived, they worked to save his life before transporting him to a hospital for treatment. Unfortunately, he died from the injuries he suffered in the accident. An investigation into the incident has been initiated to determine the exact cause of the tragedy.

While an investigation can help determine the cause of construction workers’ accidents — and, as a result, potentially prevent similar accidents in the future — the victim of an accident, including surviving family members in the event of a fatality, may be left in a precarious financial situation. While a workplace accident could result in workers’ compensation, it is often difficult for those who are suffering to fully grasp the implications of their loss. As a result, some in California turned to an experienced professional to help ensure they were treated fairly during such a devastating time.
