After an employee has been injured on the job in Arizona, the last thing he or she should have to worry about is money. Especially in cases of severe injury where surgery is required, the injured worker should be able to concentrate on recovery, not how he or she is going to afford to pay for any required medical treatments. In another state, an injured worker had just such an experience after an industrial accident led to him needing surgery.
An employee of C&D Waste is now recovering from the surgery that was required after a workplace accident resulted in his head getting stuck in an excavator. The incident took place at approximately 3 p.m. on March 15, when the man's head somehow became trapped between the excavator's cab and the arm-like boom part of the device. No one seems entirely certain how the incident actually occurred.
