Heavy machinery leaves employees prone to workplace accidents

California workers who make their livings on farms, in construction or industrial lines of work understand how dangerous an average day on the job can be. While these are not the only types of jobs with safety risks, they are definitely among those that rank highest for workplace accidents. Often, such mishaps involve heavy machinery or high-powered tools and equipment. 

A man in another state was recently rushed to the hospital following a terrible accident on the job. Specific details of the events leading up to the emergency situation remain under investigation. All that is known at this time is that the man's arm somehow became entrapped in a piece of heavy machinery.  

Local firefighters were dispatched to the scene to assist the injured man. They received word en route, however, that he had been freed and was being transported by ambulance to a nearby medical facility. In situations like this, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration must be notified, and typically sends investigators to an accident site to look into whether any safety violations occurred. 

Many California workers understand the financial struggle of trying to make ends meet after suffering workplace accidents. In fact, some injuries are so severe that those suffering are never able to return to their duties in the workplace. This type of tragedy obviously results in a need for financial support, which is one reason why the workers' compensation program exists. Navigating the workers' comp system is often complicated and stressful. An injured worker can ask for help from an experienced attorney to help remove some of the burden and simplify the process.
