A construction worker in Durham, North Carolina suffered injuries yesterday when a roof truss fell on him at a construction job on Farrington Road. The accident occurred at about 9:00 am and rescuers used a ladder truck to help the injured worker.
There is not much additional information available about this accident. However, construction accidents can be very complex and involve multiple parties who may be liable for a worker’s injuries. For instance, we are currently working on a case where a worker was very seriously injured due to the negligence of a different contractor at the work site. In a case such as that, the injured worker may be entitled to workers compensation benefits in addition to maintaining a claim against the negligent contractor.
