No matter the level expertise, any worker can suffer an injury from an accident at the workplace.
A construction worker was injured Friday afternoon at Texas A&M's campus while working on the expansion site of the Veterinary Medicine Teaching and Small Animal building.
According to College Station Fire Department Battalion Chief Robert Mumford, firefighters received a distress call from the construction site around 1:40 p.m.
"One of the workers was placing some pipe in a manhole when the pipe bounced back and struck him," Mumford said.
The man sustained several cuts to his head and face, though he remained conscious and breathing. After being extracted by firefighters from the manhole, he was taken by College Station paramedics to St. Joseph hospital in Bryan.
It goes to show that no matter how experienced an employee is...accidents at work can happen.
When they do happen, things can become quite hectic and confusing. Who do you report your injury too? Do you report your injury? What kind of compensation can I receive? Will I be fired due to my injury?
These are far too many stresses for an injured employee to endure. While you're recovering from a physical injury, let Eric, Randy, and Sarah do their best to alleviate your mental and emotional burden.
