Ohio construction worker injured in a 20 foot ditch

Now that the warm weather has arrived, some of the workers that are most vulnerable to sustaining injuries are those engaged in various construction projects around the state of Ohio. Workplace injuries to construction workers always spike as more and more projects get underway in the spring and summer. Many hazards exist at every construction site, and it is essential that every safety precaution be taken to ensure that construction workers remain safe and free from workplace accidents.

Recently, an Ohio construction worker, who was working in a 20 foot ditch, was injured when he was struck by a piece of scaffolding. The extent of his injuries are not known at this time, and he is currently receiving medical treatment at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he was admitted following the accident.

According to reports, the worker was performing construction work on a new building at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, which is a $180 million dollar project. At the present time, he is reported to be doing well.

Fortunately, this worker may be able to take advantage of the benefits offered under the Ohio worker's compensation system. He may be able to seek reimbursement for all the medical bills he has incurred as a result of the accident, as well as receive future medical treatment as needed to treat his injuries. He also may be able to receive monetary benefits while he is unable to work. If he is left with a permanent disbility or impairment as a result of his injuries, he may also be able to seek additional compensation.
