Carpet layer falls four stories from Holiday Inn Express window in Lynnwood

A 45-year-old carpet layer was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with unknown injuries after he fell four stories from a window while working in Lynnwood.

According to a report in The Seattle Times, the man was installing carpet at the new Holiday Inn Express at 2515 196th St. SW around 10am this morning. He was offloading carpet from a forklift outside the building when he fell.

On-the-job accidents injure thousands of construction workers every year. In 2006, 87 workers were killed in construction accidents in Washington State.

More than 50% of the workplace injuries occur to workers under the age of 45. Accidents sometimes leave workers permanently disabled during their prime working and earning years. It is imperative that workers receive fair compensation for their injuries to cover loss of wages, rehabilitation and pain and suffering. Families of workers killed on site are also eligible to claim for compensation to provide a stable future for the family.
