They Had To Use A Crane To Get Injured Worker To Ground

Posted By The Law Offices of Eugene G. Bruno, P.C. Posted in: Personal Injury Attorney.

20-October-2018

We are happy to report that a construction worker who was injured on the twentieth floor of a La Jolla high-rise last month is doing okay. In the construction industry, there are often times when accidents do not turn out well.

We know one thing – the worker’s colleagues were determined to get them to medical treatment quickly. They decided to use a crane to bring their injured coworker to the ground where paramedics with San Diego Fire-Rescue were waiting.

Construction work is dangerous, there is no doubt about it. The men and women in construction are the lifeblood of our economy, working to keep our infrastructure in shape and our houses sturdy. We could not function without them.

If you are a construction worker and you have been hurt on the job due to someone else’s negligence, do you know where to turn?

When you need a San Diego personal injury attorney, you can count on Eugene G. Bruno to be by your side.

Dangerous Work

You only have to see that OSHA has assigned a name to the fatal accidents in the construction industry to know it is dangerous. The “Fatal Four” include:

  • Falls
  • Getting struck by objects
  • Electrocutions
  • Getting caught in-between items

But what about the non-fatal accidents, the ones that end up costing people in more than just medical expenses. Here are some of the main culprits when it comes to those non-fatal accidents:

  • Parts and materials – from building materials and structural metal materials to lumber and nails, these are huge contributors to injuries.
  • Worker motion and position – this covers injuries in which bodily motion such as walking, climbing, bending, twisting, etc. are done in a manner that injures the body.
  • Hand tools – we are talking about knives, power tools, shovels, drills, etc.
  • Floors, walkways, ground surfaces – if they are uneven, workers can slip and fall.

In the construction industry, it is up to companies to ensure that employees have the equipment they need. This includes clothing, headgear, eyewear, respirator equipment, and more. Anything a worker needs for safety should be provided.

There should also be regular safety training that includes every piece of equipment that is used on a job site. Safety training is important for worker, whether they are new in the industry or have been there for 20 years.

What You Can Do

Construction accidents are scary. Though we know you take the precautions necessary to stay safe, there are times when other people cause you harm. It may not be intentional, but it can still happen. Will you be able to afford the medical costs? What about the lost income?
