1 dead, 2 injured in electrical work injury

Law Offices of James M. Curran

While construction work can be rewarding for those in the industry, it can also be dangerous. Most construction companies in New Jersey and across the country implement various safety measures to keep workers safe. However, an unexpected accident may still occur and cause a work injury. Two workers in another state were recently injured and another was killed in an accident on the job.

According to authorities, the three men were working on the construction of a new senior living apartment building. All three men were in a boom lift while installing gutters on the building. In the process, one of the men struck a power line and was electrocuted.

Another worker on the ground was able to lower the victims after the accident occurred. The man who struck the line was taken to the hospital and was later pronounced dead. Another victim was airlifted to a different hospital in critical condition. The third victim declined medical treatment.

Dealing with a work injury can be a stressful situation for victims and their families. Those injured on the job may choose to file workers’ compensation claims. Similarly, deceased victims’ surviving families may choose to file for death benefits. When these claims are successful, claimants are typically awarded monetary benefits that can be used to help cover medical bills, lost wages or other related expenses. Anyone interested in learning more about these types of insurance claims can consult experienced New Jersey workers’ compensation attorneys for more information and for assistance in filing.
