Last week, news sources reported that two men barely escaped with their lives after a construction accident took place. According to the police report, the two men were working on a grain bin when it suddenly malfunctioned. One of the victims was thrown from a height of 30 to 40 feet and sustained serious injuries. At this time, it is uncertain how the second man was injured, but it is known that he was wounded during the accident. Both men were transported to a local hospital shortly after police received a 911 call. Reports indicate that the accident is still under investigation by local officials and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
When you are hurt in a construction accident, you may be unable to return to work for days, weeks, or even months. If that is the case, you need to consider how you will pay your bills, and you'll also want to learn more about workers' compensation benefits.
