1 suffers head injury in fall-related workplace accident

Falls from heights are one of the most common hazards that a construction worker in Georgia may face while on the job site. Even a fall from a lesser distance can cause broken bones and joint pain, and the consequences of a fall become greater as the height of a fall increases. A construction worker in another state has suffered a major head injury after he reportedly fell nearly 25 feet in a recent workplace accident.

According to reports, the incident occurred on a recent Monday as the man was removing garbage from the roof of a building. Authorities say the man suddenly tripped and crashed through a nearby skylight and proceeded to fall 25 feet before hitting the ground. Upon arriving at the scene, police advised they had to force their way into the building to rescue the man.

The man reportedly suffered a major head injury in the incident and was transported to a local hospital shortly thereafter. Workers who operate at heights generally wear safety gear such as hardhats and safety harnesses to protect against a fall. However, should a harness fail to keep a worker from crashing to the ground, the results of such an incident could prove disastrous.

Substantial medical bills and the likelihood of an extended recovery period can leave a person in search of some much-needed financial assistance. Those who suffer major injuries in a workplace accident could be entitled to relief through the workers' compensation insurance system, but the process can be challenging to navigate alone. Fortunately, there are attorneys that can assist a person in Georgia in pursuing the full amount of benefits achievable through every applicable source.
