Workplace accident leaves 1 with severe head injury

Performing job-related tasks on the side of a busy road can be hazardous, but for many construction workers in Georgia and elsewhere, it may also be part of the job. Even with safety barriers and signs in place to warn drivers of an upcoming construction zone, there is still some level of risk involved with operating near traffic. A recent workplace accident in which a vehicle struck the rear of a construction trailer has left several workers with injuries.

Law enforcement agents advised the incident took place at around 10 a.m. on a recent Wednesday as a construction crew was attempting to fill in potholes in the area. According to reports, it occurred when the driver of a northbound truck suddenly slammed into the back of a parked construction vehicle that was towing a signal arrow trailer. The impact of the crash forced the second vehicle to hit a nearby worker, subsequently causing him to hit his head on a steel bucket.

Emergency responders advised the man is currently being treated for a severe head injury. They also state that two other workers were involved in the crash, one of whom suffered a minor leg injury while the other was taken to the hospital for treatment of a back injury. The incident reportedly remains under investigation and police have advised that charges are pending against the driver who caused the crash.

Those who suffer severe injuries in a workplace accident under similar circumstances may be uncertain of their available options for seeking restitution. Fortunately, there are attorneys who can examine the incident and provide a person in Georgia with guidance on how best to approach the situation. An attorney can examine a client's injuries and financial needs and assist in pursuing the full amount of compensation achievable through every applicable source.
