Work accident causes serious injuries to construction worker

In the construction field, a wide range of dangers can put a worker in the hospital or even in the grave if the injuries are serious enough.

Car accident leads to work accident for state trooper

Vehicle accidents can often lead to even more accidents. Disabled cars parked on interstate shoulders, emergency responders assisting the injured, high speeds and distracted driving all combine to cause very dangerous conditions. This was just the situation for a state trooper, two women and a commercial vehicle driver recently. When the trooper was called to the scene of a minor car accident late one evening, which happens often across North Carolina, he had no way of knowing he would soon be taken to the hospital -- the victim of a work accident himself.

Work accident at rail yard injures employee

People often view their jobs as lifelines; after all, without a job, a person cannot make a living and thus cannot support himself or herself.
