Employee Injured When Pipe Rolls Over His Leg

(from sgvtribune.com) 

A worker at a local business ended up with a broken leg when a concrete pipe fell on him Monday, police said.

The accident happened at Arrow Fuel Services at 9:17 a.m. Irwindale Police Sgt. John Fraijo described the business at 1580 Arrow Highway as a truck fuel station.

Fraijo said a 57-year-old man used a tractor loader to move a pipe measuring two feet in diameter to the top of a road behind the property.

The man placed the pipe and got off the tractor. The concrete pipe started rolling down, Fraijo said.

He tried to stop the pipe which rolled over him.

"It snapped his right femur," Fraijo said.

We at Loney & Schueller pride ourselves on our ability to fight for the injured worker. Far too often, injured workers find themselves at the mercy of bullying employers who intimidate their employees into thinking that filing a workers' compensation claim is wrong...and an "attack" on the company.

This is NOT the case. You, the worker, have rights. Rights that can not be taken away from you...rights that you should exercise if you suffer a workplace injury.

Eric, Randy, and Sarah are committed to fighting for you.

If you've been injured at work, the best thing to do is call Eric, Randy, or Sarah at 515-225-4485. We find that nearly all of our clients are unaware of how many rights they actually have. These laws are there to protect the employee and to ensure they are properly compensated if an accident should occur.

We will go over your rights with you, and together, we will find the proper course of action to take...and then fight vigorously for your rights. We aren't concerned with your employer being upset with us...we don't represent them in any fashion...we represent YOU.
