Slips and Falls Still Top the List of Workplace Injuries

Slips and falls are the #1 cause of workplace injuries, and in many instances, these falls can be prevented through proper safety measures. For whatever reason though, the employer fails to ensure their employees' safety by putting up proper safety precautions.

A construction worker fell as much as 40 feet from a student housing development under construction at the corner of Wright Street and West Glenn Avenue in Auburn on Thursday.

Auburn police and fire personnel responded to the scene at about 4:16 p.m. where a 23-year-old male from Georgia fell between 25 and 40 feet from scaffolding at the site, according to Auburn police Capt. Lorenza Dorsey.

If you've been injured in a fall at the workplace, contact Eric, Randy, and Sarah at 515-225-4485. We will go over your claim with you and help determine the proper course to ensure you get your rightful compensation.

Falls can not only result in short-term injuries, but many of those injuries lead to debilitating health effects later in life. A fall can cause a back injury which can linger for years...which may result in the injured employee from never fully being able to do his job properly.

All of these factors must be taken into consideration to ensure you get your rightful compensation. We at Loney & Schueller are ready to help you...and ready to fight for your rights.
