Workplace accidents: Man suffers serious injury in fall

Employers and workers alike often go to great lengths to ensure that work conditions are safe for everyone. However, workplace accidents can still happen in Pennsylvania and other locations even when stringent standards are in place and closely adhered to. In fact, a man in another state recently suffered a serious head injury in a fall that officials have described as an industrial accident.

Emergency workers report that they received a call about the accident at approximately 4:30 p.m. on a day in September. Reports indicate that the accident involved a 36-year-old man at a Staples Warehouse located in another state. The victim was reportedly on a roof when it collapsed.

He apparently fell over 20 feet before landing on a concrete slab. Following the accident, he was transported to the hospital by ambulance. Reports of the accident indicate that he suffered a serious head injury in the fall. The accident is still being investigated.

Unfortunately, recovery following a head injury is often a long process. Many victims are never able to fully recover. Because of the potential harm of workplace accidents, employers across the country are required to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage, which can help injured workers cope with medical expenses and lost wages. When an accident prevents an employee from returning to work in the same capacity, this insurance coverage can also provide for job retraining. In many cases, people entitled to such benefits in Pennsylvania decide to hire a professional with experience with the process to help them seek fair compensation.
