Scoreboard accident requires medical care for Greensboro worker

A workplace injury can happen anywhere and at any time. Such was the case on Nov. 7 when a man fell from the Newbridge Bank Park scoreboard in Greensboro.

According to Greensboro fire officials, the incident happened around 9:15 a.m. Officials say the man was up on the scoreboard when he fell inside. It was reported that he dropped some 10 feet. He was injured from the fall to the extent that he could not get out on his own. Local firefighters had to perform a high angle rescue in order to free him. It is not known at this time the type of injury the worker suffered. No comment was made from the owners of the park, and it is not known what type of work the man was doing at the time of the accident.

When workplace accidents such as this occur, the victim may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. These payments may be vital to the victim, since many injured workers are not able to work after a serious accident.

Workers who are injured on the job and need assistance with the workers' compensation process may wish to consider discussing their needs with an attorney who specializes in this field of law. A knowledgeable attorney may be able to answer complex questions and help move the process forward. Because workers are often subject to time limitations and sometimes given only 30 days to file a claim, it is important to act swiftly. Victims of workplace accidents do not have to face the complicated process alone.
