Anaheim, CA – Worker Seriously Injured in Accident at Disneyland

Anaheim, CA (August 29, 2019) – Early Thursday morning, a steel plate fell on top of a man who was working in a trench at Disneyland. According to authorities, the incident happened at approximately 3:20 a.m. and resulted in life-threatening injuries.

Emergency responders received a call concerning the accident and Paramedics with Metro Net Fire Authority were promptly dispatched to the scene. There was no information reported concerning exactly what the victim was working on at the time of the accident.

Medical crews rushed the injured man to a nearby hospital after he went into cardiac arrest at the scene. Investigators are working to determine the cause of this incident.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.

Catastrophic Injuries in California

In 2015, a rate of 3.8 per 100 full-time employees was recorded as having been injured or killed in the workplace. Neither death nor catastrophic injuries in California can be considered an extremely rare occurrence, particularly while performing duties which involve heavy materials and equipment. Unfortunately, accidents can happen at any time and it is extremely important for victims to understand their rights during such a trying time.

Due to the immensely high costs of medical bills and physical recovery on top of lost wages, many victims will opt to file a claim for financial recompense following a serious accident. It is our belief that anyone who has acted in a negligent manner, resulting in the injuries or death of another person, should be held accountable for their actions.
