Construction worker injured on Clare County job site

The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating a work site accident that took place in Clare County late last week. On Thursday, a 52-year-old worker was taken to a hospital after falling into a hole on a construction site. According to a news report, he was operating a backhoe when he suddenly lost his footing and ending up falling into a hole.

He was taken to the MidMichigan Medical Center-Midland to be treated for potential head injuries, according to the report.

After any construction site accident, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration typically performs an investigation to learn exactly what caused the accident. If it turns out that the site does not meet safety regulations, OSHA might choose to fine the employer or site owner. However, regardless of who may be at fault for a particular workplace accident, injured workers can generally obtain workers' compensation benefits for their medical expenses, lost wages, etc.

Here in Michigan, all employers are required to carry workers' compensation insurance for this very reason.

Some employers might try to prevent injured workers from filing claims, but workers should note that there is a limited period in which they can file claims with employers after an accident. If an injured worker misses the deadline, the claim might be denied.

Injured workers often benefit from discussing the accident with a workers' compensation attorney to ensure that they claim all of the compensation to which they are entitled. Recovering from a workplace injury can be a very difficult experience and injured workers should not have to be financially burdened as a result of their injuries.
