Ricardo Avila Injured in an Accident with a Case Skid Steer Loader at a Housing Development Site in Orange City, Iowa

Orange City, IA — A man sustained injuries when someone backed a 2023 Case skid steer loader over his leg. The incident happened Monday at a housing development site southeast of Orange City Area Health System.

According to reports, emergency personnel transported Ricardo Avila to receive medical attention for their injured leg.

No additional details have been released.

Thoughts on workplace accidents

People see workplace accidents and may fall into the trap of thinking they are inevitable risks to the job and that, given how often they occur, little can be done to prevent them. This view is not helped by the fact that in 2022, 4.53 million work-related injuries required medical attention.

However, at the end of the day, no one should have to go to work and suffer a serious, life-changing injury that will affect them, their family, and their future. Those profiting from the labor of others must do all in their power to ensure known risks are identified and planned for and those who are trusting them return home to their family safely each night.

When this does not happen, those responsible for the injury should be held responsible for their wrongdoing.
