Forum Title: As If Times Weren't Bad Enough...
I have been having trouble finding work as it is. A week and a half ago I started a job finishing 120 sheets. I ended up falling about 14 feet. I slipped on a glob of mud and fell all the way to the concrete pad on the first floor. (There were no railings or safety rails in place) I ended up breaking 9 ribs, punctured and collapsed a lung, broke my jaw, fractured my temporal lobe and bruised my brain, broke my clavicle and another bone in my shoulder. I think that I also suffered a minor stroke because the left side of my face is about 1/4 inch lower than the right and I cant talk very good. I will not be in any condition to work for quite some time. I hope that I am going to be eligible for some kind of disability compensation. I don't have any medical insurance. The company that flew me in the helicoptor to the hospital was wanting $21,000 for a 39 mile trip before I was even released from the hospital. I am not looking for sympathy but, I am telling this to let everyone know how important safety really is. Medical insurance is also a very good thing to have for such little mishaps as well. It only takes a split second for something of this nature to happen to anyone. M T Buckets
