Landscape Worker Hospitalized After Nearby Lightning Strike

North Lauderdale Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Help from a North Lauderdale Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

On a stormy South Florida afternoon in North Lauderdale, a landscape worker was jolted and seriously hurt when lightning struck nearby. It happened shortly before 3:00 P.M. in Hampton Pines Park according to Broward Sheriff’s Office. “One male has been transferred to Northwest Medical Center with severe injuries,” police said in a social media posting.

A witness said that the landscaping crew took shelter from the rain and lightning, but one worker was hurt when he tried to retrieve a shovel. The injured employee was in cardiac arrest when EMS arrived at the scene. Although landscaping companies regularly conduct safety meetings with its employees, accident sometimes do occur. In this instance however, it appears that the worker did not follow safety protocol.

Be that as it may, fortunately, the Florida Workers’ Compensation Act protects workers that have been injured on the job, whether it’s their fault or not.
