Despite improvements over time, and better safety measures, construction remains one of the most dangerous jobs. Work accidents are not uncommon, and often involve falls, crush injuries or other types of serious accidents. These kinds of workplace injuries not only result in serious physical limitations but also create financial concerns when an injured worker is unable to work for a substantial period of time. In the worst cases, a worker is killed while on the job, which can cause extreme financial hardship for his or her family.
In Phoenix, at a job site located in the University of Phoenix Stadium parking lot, a construction worker recently suffered a 25-foot fall, which ultimately resulted in his death. The construction worker was a 31-year-old male who was working on building a stage for a tailgate party for the upcoming Super Bowl. It is unclear at this point what caused the worker to fall, but authorities do not suspect foul play. Emergency personnel, including firefighters and paramedics, responded to the scene and transported the man to the hospital, but he was pronounced dead after arriving there.
