Injured Due to Falling Work Supplies?

If you're injured while on the job...or doing a job-related activity, it's important to remember that you have rights. It's our priority to make sure you know your rights....and that you are compensated correctly. You've worked too hard not get what you have rightfully earned.

A worker at a Belltown-area construction site was injured Monday morning when a load of material fell and hit him, fire officials said.

Seattle firefighters and medics responded to the scene, near 4th Avenue and Blanchard Street, at about 9:50 a.m. after receiving reports of a construction accident.

The construction worker, a 30-year-old man, was taken to Harborview Medical Center in stable condition.

Kristin Tinsley of the Seattle Fire Department said initial reports indicated the material fell about 15 or 20 feet and hit the man.

According to unconfirmed reports, the material that fell was plywood.

This is a perfect case of how even when proper safety precautions are taken, there is still a chance of that "freak" accident. It's important to remember that those types of accidents are still covered by workers' compensation guidelines.

Too many times, we've heard from injured workers who thought that since it was "just" an accident, they weren't able to seek compensation. This is NOT the case. You have rights...and no matter the injury, you should always report the injury, and seek out guidance on how to be compensated for your injuries.

If you have been injured while on the job, call us at 515-225-4485. Eric, Randy, and Sarah are ready and willing to sit down with you and go over your claim.

Together, we can find the best route to take to make sure you receive all your rightful compensation. It's our job to fight for you...it's your job to recover from the injuries you've sustained at the workplace.
