Dramatic fall to blame for construction worker's death

For many Kentucky construction companies, one of their greatest challenges is keeping their workers safe. Because construction workers are required to work around heavy equipment and machinery, at tall heights and in close proximity to hazards such as power and water, staying safe requires a lot of forethought, training and employee education. While many construction companies prioritize safety training, there are times when accidents happen that could result in serious injuries or death. 

In a recent story out of New Jersey, a construction worker received fatal injuries after he fell from the scaffolding he was standing on. The incident began when the man was working on a porch and a large piece of wood came down and struck him in the head. After losing consciousness, the man fell to the ground. When first responders arrived at the scene, they called for a medical helicopter and initiated life-saving efforts to help the man. However, the Life Flight was cancelled later on because the man had passed away. It appears as though the situation was accidental, but an investigation is ongoing to determine the cause of the beam falling. 

If people have been injured in a work-related accident, they may wish to contact an attorney to help them seek compensation. A legal professional may be able to provide insight and guidance through common legal barriers to give victims the best shot at receiving the compensation they deserve to help with expenses related to medical treatment and rehabilitation among other things.
