There's No Such Thing as an "Ordinary" Work Day

An ordinary, run-of-the-mill work day can turn tragic in an instant.

An employee of Stearns Electric Association was injured Friday morning when the boom of the bucket truck he was in detached.

The line worker fell and sustained serious injuries, according to a news release issued by the electric cooperative. The incident happened at 10 a.m. at a job site near Glenwood.

The employee was taken by ambulance to Glacial Ridge Health System in Glenwood and then airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center.

The cooperative said Friday afternoon that at this point they don't believe electrical contact occurred.

Falls are one of the leading causes of injuries at the workplace...falls from construction sites...falls from equipment...even falls at the office. Falls can result in very serious injury, and dealing with these injuries should be dealt with properly.

Employers might try and "persuade" you not to file a claim...they might try to tell you that it "hurts the company"...but that's not the case. That's a bullying tactic employers will use. You have rights...rights that you should exercise to seek the compensation your owed.

It's our job to make sure those rights are upheld in a court of law...and we're very good at it. If you've been injured while on the job, call Eric, Randy, and Sarah at 515-225-4485 or visit us at Loneylaw.com.
