Construction at the new Cowboys stadium hit a bump on Thursday when three workers were injured in a construction accident. The workers were on a crane when cables and equipment fell from another crane, forcing them to jump off the one they were standing on. Three workers were injured, one critically so, from the fall. One was taken by helicopter to a hospital, the other two taken to the same hospital by ambulance. This accident occurred just one day after a worker was killed in a crane accident at another construction site. While all three men are known to have been conscious during transportation to the hospital, it is still unknown what the extent of their construction injuries were. The size of any site when the end product is a structure like a stadium makes construction accidents and injuries like the one involved here practically inevitable. Since the extent of any injuries is as of yet unknown, it is hard to determine whether any personal injury lawsuits, workers’ compensation claims, or even wrongful death lawsuits will be filed.
