Three workers, all believed to be in their 40s, were injured after falling at a construction site located at the Euclid Family Health Center project on October 15 around 9 a.m.
San Diego Fire spokesman Maurice Luque stated that one of the workers was holding a ladder at the top of the structure, while the other two were climbing up when this fall accident occurred.
As the ladder failed for unknown reasons, the two men climbing it fell, and the other man on top of the metal structure was propelled to the ground. Two of the injured victims suffered major trauma and one was moderately injured. Our personal injury law office prays for a quick recovery of the injured victims.
Construction site accidents can be devastating. Heavy equipment usage, unstable structures, and materials lying unattended on the premises can pose the risk of seriously injuring construction workers. When construction sites are not maintained properly and safety standards are not a constant priority, the potential for an injury increases greatly.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, around 19,000 construction site workers were injured and more than 40 workers were killed in California construction site accidents in 2010.
Recovering from a construction site injury may be a challenge all on its own, but also having to tackle with the demands of a possible lawsuit can take its toll on the injured victims.
The injured victims in this case may be entitled to monetary compensation to help pay for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
