USClaims Can Help When A Workplace Accident Cuts Off Your Livelihood

Everyone on Carmelo’s(not a real person) work crew had known him as the foreman’s right arm. Carmelo jokes darkly about that these days. Thanks to an avoidable workplace accident, he no longer has a right arm.

He had been working in one of the future drainage areas at a condominium complex his company was helping to build when the accident happened. While a crane suspended a large, molded piece of concrete over its intended location near the mouth of the drainage ditch, Carmelo maneuvered below it to inspect the points where it would attach to the structure already in place. He had just completed his inspection and was moving out from underneath it when one of the chains suspending the 40,000-pound bulk gave way.

Had it happened a half-second earlier, Carmelo would be dead. As it was, the 20 tons of concrete had pinned him to the ground by his right arm. It took emergency responders more than three hours to free him; his pulverized right arm was completely unsalvageable. If he were able to return to work in construction at all, it would be behind a desk. Those jobs were hard to come by, though, and paperwork was not Carmelo’s strength. He worked with his hands.

Carmelo’s lawyer told him that he had a very strong worker’s compensation case, but that it might be a while before he saw any money. His employer was not playing nicely. While he was still in the hospital, recovering from the acute trauma to his body, Carmelo’s employer and its insurer had already begun pointing the finger of blame at him. He shouldn’t have been under the concrete fixture, they said, knowing full well that it was standard procedure and that there was no other way to conduct the required inspection.

As Carmelo’s medical bills and other expenses started to pile up, and knowing that a judgement or settlement could be years away, Carmelo’s lawyer told him to call USClaims.
