2 men injured in fall at construction site

While there are risks associated with all occupations in North Carolina and across the country, jobs that require employees to work at great heights can create additional concerns. Unfortunately, a fall or a dropped item could result in injury. In fact, two men in another state were recently injured after they were involved in a construction accident.

The incident happened just before 9 a.m. on a day in early July. According to reports, a worker fell approximately 10 or 12 feet. While that worker only suffered minor injuries, reports indicate that he landed on a co-worker. The co-worker, a 47-year-old man, suffered injuries described as serious but not life-threatening.

The former was taken to the hospital, apparently in a private vehicle. However, the latter received treatment at the scene before he was transported to the hospital by ambulance. The exact extent of his injuries is unclear. The identities of the injured workers were not immediately released.

Often when people are injured in a fall related to their job responsibilities, they sometimes face a recovery that could be lengthy and require significant medical interventions. While unable to work, medical bills and lost wages could become a significant concern if employers were not required to provide workers' compensation insurance benefits that can help injured workers and their families manage the expenses associated with a serious workplace accident. Because many victims prefer to focus on their overall recovery, some in North Carolina choose to hire an experienced attorney to help them seek a fair settlement.
