Men Were Operating A Manlift When It Was Struck By 2 Concrete Beams
The tragic construction incident took place in the afternoon of Saturday, January 25th, around 5PM. The construction employees were part of the team working on the $92.5 million multi-phase renovation project at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Few details have been release but it has been reported that the two men were operating a manlift when it was struck by two massive concrete beams. The lift was turned on its side and crushed by the weight of the beams, while also trapping the men inside.
Upon their arrival, emergency crews were able to extricate the two workers who exhibited critical injuries. Both were promptly transported to DCH Regional Medical Center in Tuscaloosa for treatment. No further updates have been released regarding their health status, nor their identities. The Tuscaloosa Fire Rescue is carrying on an investigation, and the state’s occupational health and safety office is likely to get involved as well.

Laurence Banville, an experienced construction accident at BanvilleLaw.com and legal contributor to LegalHerald, offered the below information for any individuals who may have suffered a workplace injury and are considering all of their legal options:
“Construction sites may seem like strict, organized workplaces to outsiders or any person who has never been on an active one. For the most part, this is usually the case.
And yet, the construction industry is responsible not only for the majority of workplace injuries in the United States, but also for the largest number of deaths. It is true that the incidence of injuries and deaths on project sites has gone down over time, but even a single case is one too many.
The trauma that victims and their families go through when it is them who suffer the injury is immeasurable; one can only imagine the pain when they result in death.
Fortunately, there are legal avenues for victims and their loved ones to pursue that allows them to seek justice. For example, through a worker’s comp claim, the victim of the injuries can have their medical bills paid and sometimes even recover a portion of lost wages. Under other circumstances, and irrespective of the extent of the injury, a case can be made for filing a personal injury lawsuit. And most importantly, these two paths can be followed at the same time, allowing the victim and their loved ones to recover the full compensation they rightfully deserve.
Victims of construction or on-the-job injuries should reach out to an experienced construction accident attorney who will be able to analyze their case and lay out all of the potential options for compensation.”
