3 Construction Workers Struck by Wooden Beams in Crane Accident Near Revere Beach

Legal Analysis: Construction injury lawyer Kim Dougherty discusses financial compensation for injured construction workers in the second part of this article.

Three construction workers were hurt in a crane accident at a construction site near Revere Beach on Monday, June 15.

The accident happened at around 2:26 p.m. at the site at 450 Ocean Avenue when several wooden beams reportedly fell from a crane. Firefighters responded for a report of a crane accident.

Responding firefighters discovered that wooden trusses were being lifted to the building's roof by a crane, when the weight shifted and caused the beams to fall, striking four construction workers.

Three of the four workers were hospitalized, while the fourth left the scene without treatment.

The condition of the workers is not known at this time.

What Financial Compensation Can I Get For a Construction Injury?

Attorney contributor Kim Dougherty represents injured construction workers and helps them recover the financial compensation they deserve. Here are some thoughts from Kim on the options available to these workers:

Construction workers have some of the highest work-related injury rates, as this is demanding and sometimes dangerous work. When a construction worker gets injured, they should be aware of their options for financial compensation. There are options available for handling medical bills, lost wages, and other setbacks.

The available options for financial compensation depend on the circumstances of the accident. In many cases, workers' compensation will cover personal and financial difficulties. There are also some cases in which injured construction workers may have grounds for a lawsuit.

Lawsuits are available for injuries caused by third-party negligence, meaning it was the fault of someone other than your employer or coworkers. For example, a property owner could be sued for a construction injury caused by a dangerous property condition.
