Worker On Construction Site Flown To Nearby Trauma Center

The Mesa Fire Department’s emergency response units were called out to a construction site in east Mesa, Arizona, on Thursday, September 19th around 3 PM.

Upon arriving at the scene which is located close by the intersection of N. Higley Rd and Longbow Pkwy, the first responders encountered a massive dump truck turned on its back. The driver, a man in his 30’s, was trapped inside the driver’s cabin.

The MFD’s personnel worked diligently to free the victim from inside the truck. Afterward, he was stabilized and flown to a nearby trauma center with life-threatening injuries.

No details have been provided with regards to the victim’s status or identity, though it is clear that he was in a precarious position. Mesa PD remained at the scene, investigating the cause of the incident.

Attorney contributor and construction accident attorney Kevin Biniazin represents individuals and families who have been affected by construction site injuries. Kevin has offered some important insights for victims who may find themselves in this situation.

“The present-day construction site is bound to be bustling with all kinds of heavy machinery: excavators, bulldozers, loaders, cranes, dump trucks, compactors, and more. And while these powerful tools are absolutely vital to the completion of a construction project, particularly if it’s to be done on-time and within-budget, there’s an element of risk that can never be erased.

It is true that the safety regulations established by federal authorities such as OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) are intended to prevent all kinds of injuries or accidents. Unfortunately, construction site supervisors don’t always enforce these, and may even turn a blind eye to instances in which they’re being violated.

It’s only a matter of time before a construction site becomes deadly if safety standards are not being followed. Worst of all, if a worker happens to suffer an injury, the burden usually lands on their families who must deal with hospitalization, medication, and other medical treatment costs that often arise.

Victims and their loved ones are able to seek compensation after a construction site accident via the workers’ compensation system. If successful, this will help pay for medical expenses and, in some cases, the benefits can also cover a part of lost wages.

Additionally, in some specific cases, personal injury lawsuits can be considered and pursued as well, even at the same time at which a workers’ comp claim is submitted.”
