Construction accident leaves North Carolina man seriously injured

Taking proper safety measures could considerably reduce the risk of workers suffering injuries while on the job. Unfortunately, there is no certain guarantee that a construction accident will not take place, even when workers are careful. In many cases, a sudden event will occur, and a worker or multiple workers end up suffering serious injuries.

It was recently reported that a North Carolina construction worker was injured while on a work site. The man had reportedly been helping to clear the site of trees when the incident occurred. Details on what exactly happened were not available at the time of the report, but it was mentioned that a tree fell on the man. It was unclear what kind of machinery may have been used to clear the site.

The man was transported from the work area to a local hospital. The injuries he suffered were reported as being life threatening. Identifying information for the man had not yet been released. It was mentioned that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration would be assisting in the investigation of the serious work-related accident. 

Because the man was seriously injured in the construction accident, he will undoubtedly face many setbacks and difficulties as he works to recover. In addition to his physical hardships, financial struggles are also likely to occur. However, he may be entitled to workers' compensation that could help him better deal with those financial predicaments. Information on North Carolina workers' comp and how to go about obtaining such benefits may prove useful to him.
