Man trapped up to chest in wet soil in construction accident

While wet conditions can have a substantial impact on ground stability, rainy weather might not always keep a construction project from proceeding. Should the ground collapse and trap a worker, wet conditions may only make it more difficult for emergency responders in Georgia to perform a timely rescue. A recent construction accident involving similar conditions has left a 42-year-old man with injuries.

The incident is said to have taken place on a construction site in another state at around 4:30 p.m. on a recent Monday. According to reports, the man was working in a trench when a retaining wall gave way and fell on top of him. Due to wet weather conditions, the man became trapped up to his chest in damp soil. Although he remained conscious throughout the incident, nearby workers reported that he was experiencing trouble breathing.

Upon arriving at the scene, emergency responders were eventually able to stabilize the trench and rescue the worker. He was then rushed to a nearby medical facility for treatment of unknown injuries. Incidents involving similar conditions can be dangerous and can pose a significant threat to the health of a worker, and in some cases, they may even prove fatal.

Individuals who suffer serious harm in a construction accident may be left facing extensive medical bills and a temporary loss of income. Those who face similar financial hardships may be eligible to pursue relief through the workers' compensation insurance system, but the process can be complex. Fortunately, there are attorneys in Georgia who can provide a person with assistance in pursuing the full amount of compensation available through the necessary channels.
