Fatal workplace accident shuts down California construction site

Construction is one way to make improvements to a business or organization, allowing it to expand or just better meet the needs of existing clients. Unfortunately, there are inherent dangers associated with construction projects even with a variety of safety regulations in place. In fact, a man was recently killed in a workplace accident in California.

After a fall, a skull fracture could leave you hospitalized

Imagine you were working on a ladder, and you had a coworker stationed at the bottom to make sure it was stable. They said something to you, so you turned slightly to look down at them and see what they needed. The next thing you knew, you were falling two stories to the ground. You were seriously hurt, cracking your skull on pavement. Today, you have a skull fracture and serious complications as a result.

Construction worker accident involving dump truck proves fatal

A worker dying while on the job is, thankfully, a rare event, but when it happens, the tragedy has multiple levels. There is the loss of human life and what it means emotionally for the loved ones of that worker, but there is also a practical standpoint to consider, since the family of that worker may have relied on that person's income, which is now gone. This is one of the reasons that workers' compensation exists for employees here in California and across the nation. One recent construction worker accident in another state may result in workers' comp claims after one man died and another was seriously injured.
