Man suffers work injury in Highway 1 construction accident

California construction workers face any number of hazards while on the job. When the construction is taking place on a busy highway, the potential for a work injury often increases. In fact, a man was recently injured while working on the construction that is taking place on Highway 1.

Structure collapses and fatal work injury results

When a work injury occurs on a California construction site, the extent of the injuries a worker suffers can cover a wide range. Sometimes, a worker may suffer minor injuries, but, due to the nature of construction work, a worker often suffers more serious injuries or, in some unfortunate cases, death. When a construction worker is killed at a job site due to a work injury, the individual's family typically qualifies for workers' compensation death benefits.

Overpass in Corona collapses, 9 suffer work injury

California transportation officials recently ordered what is known as a "safety stand down" in relation to a recent construction accident. The accident resulted in nine workers suffering a work injury. The work suspension, which will affect a widening project for the 91 freeway, is set to last for the weekend.

Worker falls 30 feet, suffers serious work injury

Work accidents often occur at California construction sites. Due to the great heights at which workers often work, as well as the heavy machinery typically found on a job site, a work injury in these circumstances can result in serious injuries. A recent out-of-state construction accident ended up with a worker injured and sent to the hospital.

Work injury results in construction worker's electrocution

As many California residents know, accidents can occur in many lines of work. However, when work injuries occur, the victims are often at construction sites. Due to the heavy equipment typically employed, the heights climbed, as well as the overall dangerous working conditions, accidents are unfortunately common. A recent work injury that occurred at a construction site resulted in one worker being sent to the hospital.
