Workplace accidents common in construction, logging and farming

Ask anyone in California what type of work is most dangerous and they are likely to include construction, farming or logging in their reply. There are other inherently dangerous jobs as well, but these three industries carry high risks for personal injury. When workplace accidents occur, they often lead to challenging situations when recovering victims or the surviving families of loved ones lost attempt to file claims within the workers' compensation system.

A worker in another state was recently involved in a terrible on-the-job logging accident. It was a Tuesday afternoon when local firefighters were called to an accident scene more than 20 miles deep into a local tree farm. The surrounding terrain leading to the accident site was reportedly extremely difficult to navigate, and the tip to the accident area took more than an hour.

When rescuers arrived on site, they found a worker at the bottom of a 500-yard steep embankment. Sadly, he was pronounced dead. The situation was turned over to the local sheriff's department for investigation.

The tragic logging accident took place on a tree farm that comprises at least 90,000 acres. These types of workplace accidents often devastate entire communities. Grieving families may need assistance above and beyond emotional support when seeking information regarding what benefits might be available to them in the aftermath of their family members' deaths. An experienced workers' compensation attorney in California can provide all aspects of support to help families in this area cope with the untimely deaths of their loved ones.
