Garbage truck worker critically injured in Seattle accident

The Seattle Post Intelligencer reports that a man was critically injured in a Seattle garbage truck accident on Monday afternoon around 1:20pm.

According to their report, the unidentified man was riding on the rear of the CleanScapes garbage truck when he fell off as the truck turned from 28th onto Galer in the Magnolia neighborhood.

The injured man was taken to Harborview Medical Center with a critical head injury.

It is unclear what made the man fall but speed or driver impairment were not factors in the on-the-job accident.

In accidents such as this where a person is injured while on-the-job, the injured party or his family are advised to contact an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer who can carefully examine the accident and identify any negligence. Any employee who has sustained an injury in the course of his or her employment has a potential workers’ compensation claim.
