Two Construction Site Workers Injured After Tower Of Rebar Falls.

Two men working on a high-speed rail viaduct construction site were taken to a hospital late last week after a workplace accident. The incident happened near Highway 99 and the San Joaquin River, just outside of Fresno, California. California Highway Patrol (“CHP”) Sgt. Mike Trenholm said the two men suffered moderate injuries about 2:30 in the afternoon after a tower of rebar fell, hitting another tower and causing it to fall on the workers. At least two ambulances and at least three fire engines responded, along with the CHP, Fresno police and local sheriff’s personnel.

There were about a dozen workers at the site at the time of the accident according to Sgt. Trenholm. Extraction was not needed to get the workers out. California OSHA personnel were on the scene and CHP is leading the investigation into the cause of the accident. Construction on the site has been stopped until the investigation is complete.

Five Construction Site Workers Injured When Structure Collapsed In Canada.

Because of the inherently dangerous nature involved in any type of construction work site, all workers immediately have an increased chance of being seriously injured while on the job. Construction site workers may be unsure of who is exactly liable to them if such an injury does occur. Employer? 3rd party? Nobody? This situation can be confusing for many, but in most cases, a personal injury lawsuit is the only way for them to begin to recover. The expert personal injury attorneys and construction work site accident lawyer specialists here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates have decades of experience guiding our clients through the complicated lawsuit process involved in these types of cases.

Five workers were injured, four of them seriously, when a structure collapsed at a Gatineau residential construction site last Friday morning. The collapse happened at around 9 am at 12 rue de l’Horizon in the Plateau area, where developer Brigil is building condominiums. Scaffolding and a wall collapsed, causing masonry workers to fall about seven meters. One of the five workers was found on the third floor of the unfinished condo building and had to be rescued by firefighters, including a team from Ottawa, Québec who specialize in rope rescues. It took about an hour and a half to get the worker out. Four of the five workers were taken to hospitals in varying states of consciousness, but their injuries are not considered life-threatening.
