1 suffers serious harm in fall-related workplace accident

Falls from heights continue to be one of the leading causes of serious injury for workers in California and across the nation. A fall from even a lesser distance can cause injuries that have a lingering impact on a person's life, and those that involve greater distances could lead to life-altering consequences. A man in another state reportedly suffered severe injuries during a workplace accident that took place at a construction site.

The accident is said to have taken place on a recent Saturday as the man was performing job-related tasks at the site of a building under construction. While lifting materials on the roof of the structure, he suddenly slipped through a hole and fell nearly 30 feet to the ground below. According to reports, the hole was left in the roof after an air conditioning unit was removed.

Emergency responders say the man suffered serious injuries in the incident and went into cardiac arrest. Although he was subsequently rushed to a nearby hospital for medical treatment, no further information was provided as to his current condition. Such an incident runs the risk of leaving a person with long-term or permanent medical concerns that could alter his or her life significantly.

With the high costs of medical care and the likelihood of a long road to recovery, suffering severe harm in a workplace accident can also create financial hardships. Following such an incident, a person in California may be eligible to receive financial aid through the workers' compensation insurance system, but the process can be complex in nature. Fortunately, there are attorneys who can examine the situation thoroughly and assist a person in pursuing the full amount of compensation achievable through every applicable outlet.
