Three workers hurt in California construction accident

There are many construction projects underway throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and residents of San Mateo may see new developments popping up as they commute through Northern California. Just across the water, a large construction project is in the works in Freemont that drivers can see from Interstate 680. Unfortunately, however, that project was also the location of a dangerous accident that caused three workers to suffer injuries.

The incident occurred when a rebar tower fell while the workers were placing a wrap on it. The tower was estimated to weigh around 1,000 pounds and all three of the victims were taken to local hospitals for treatment. While two of the victims suffered minor injuries, the third victim suffered critical injuries and was being treated at a trauma center in Santa Clara.

It is reported that this is the second injury-causing accident to occur at this Bay Area construction site in the last several months. The project involves the construction of a large-scale retail and residential development and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is performing an investigation into the cause of the accident.

Workplace accidents are a common problem for individuals in many different industries. Construction accidents can be particularly dangerous due to the nature of the work and the materials the workers must use to do their jobs. As investigators continue to sort out just what happened at this construction site, the injured workers may have an opportunity to learn more about their options for being compensated from their losses.
