30-Year Old Victim Fell From Beam Attached To Platform 30 Feet Above Ground

The tragic incident occurred Wednesday, October 9th around 2PM, the same day that the school held a “topping out ceremony”, where they commemorated placing the highest component of the ongoing construction project.

San Diego County first responders performed life-saving measures on the victim upon their arrival and soon after translated him via ambulance to Grossmont Hospital. Unfortunately, the man was pronounced dead upon his arrival at the medical center.

Another construction worker reportedly suffered injuries as well, though they were not life-threatening.

California officials are currently investigating the nature and circumstances on the construction project which led to the fatality.

An experienced attorney contributor Bobby Thompson shared the following comments for those who inadvertently become victims of injuries on construction sites:

“Construction workers put their lives on the line every day that they head out to their jobs. It is not widely discussed, but their particular line of work is increasingly dangerous.

There exist countless hazards on construction projects: powerful tools, slip hazards, shaky scaffolding structures, heavy machinery and more. And most construction workers encounter these on a day-to-day basis.

It’s only a matter of time before an injury occurs on a work site. Fortunately, construction workers who suffer injuries while on a project have the right to file a worker’s compensation claim. This claim, if successful, can then aid them in receiving financial help to cover their medical bills, ongoing treatment, and in some cases, lost wages.

Yet, worker’s comp claims can also be denied outright if they’re not filed properly. In other cases, a victim may receive a lesser compensation than they deserve.

This is why victims of injuries should consider contacting an experienced construction injury attorney as soon as possible after their incident. A legal representative will then analyze the victim’s case and lay out all of the legal paths that can be taken in the pursuit of justice.
