Elevator collapses, 3 injured in recent construction accident

When operating at heights, construction workers in Georgia and elsewhere may use various types of equipment to help them reach objectives. When it comes to a construction elevator, if each piece of the apparatus is not properly placed, or if there are any defective parts, the entire structure could be at risk of collapsing. Three workers were injured after an elevator collapsed during a recent construction accident in another state.

The accident took place as the workers were operating at a construction site on a recent Wednesday afternoon. According to reports, the workers were using scaffolding and a construction elevator to perform duties when the elevator suddenly collapsed. All three of the workers were injured in the accident, and while two of them were treated at the scene and released, the other was rushed to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

Although an investigation is underway, no further information was provided as to what might have caused the elevator to collapse. Even with the necessary safety gear in place, such an incident can pose a major threat to the safety of nearby workers. Those who suffer major harm in a similar accident may also be left facing extensive hospital bills, which may leave them in desperate need of financial relief.

Individuals who suffer serious injuries in a construction accident may be eligible for monetary aid through the workers' compensation insurance system, but they may need guidance in navigating the process. Fortunately, there are attorneys in Georgia who can provide a person with guidance on how to proceed. An attorney can examine the incident, along with the client's financial needs, and assist him or her in pursuing the full amount of compensation achievable.
