Construction worker injured in fall in Florida

Workers' compensation benefits are available to help injured workers and their families through a workplace accident and its aftermath. A construction accident in another southern Florida community recently left one worker in critical condition. The workplace accident occurred when the construction worker fell from a crane he was working on. The crane he was working on was affixed to a flatbed truck on the expressway when the injured worker fell 30 feet from it. The worker was operating controls from the side of the truck when it tipped over.

The fall sent the man off the overpass and he landed on the ground 30 feet down. The man landed on the pavement but not in an area where traffic was at the time. The truck with the crane remained tipped over on its side following the accident. Workplace accidents, including construction accidents, can unexpectedly change the lives of workers forever.

Workers may be unable to go to work to earn a living to support and care for their families following a workplace accident. They may face mounting medical expenses and bills at the same time as they seek medical treatment and care to heal and recover from the harm they suffered in the workplace accident. In addition, they may face emotional trauma and struggles associated with a workplace accident.

As a result of the challenges injured workers may face during what can sometimes be a long road ahead following a workplace accident, it is important for injured workers and their families to be familiar with options available to them and how to obtain the help they need. Workers' compensation benefits can help them with the medical expenses and lost wages they face so that they can focus on the recovery process and trust that their daily needs will be met.
