Work accident at manufacturing plant causes at least 1 injury

In an office setting, people typically don't fear for their safety. Instead, their main focus is usually on meeting deadlines and getting along with coworkers. However, in North Carolina work environments where being injured may easily happen after one punches the clock each day, people are less apt to take their health and safety for granted. In a recent work accident, a man was injured at a manufacturing plant.

In this case, an explosion occurred at the plant. The incident happened during the early morning hours. One employee suffered burn injuries in the blast.

He was taken to the hospital. Other workers at the plant also appear to have been hurt, but their conditions were not described in a media report. The plant is working with authorities on the local, state and national levels to figure out what caused the explosion.

North Carolina workers' compensation insurance is essential because it provides benefits to workers who are injured or fall sick as a result of an incident on the job. As a result, the workers normally don't have to worry about lost wages or of not being able to go through with necessary medical treatments. The benefit of workers' compensation for employers is that it normally protects companies from being sued by workers who have been injured. Someone who has been injured due to a work accident certainly has the right to pursue the maximum benefit amount to which he or she may be entitled in this type of situation. Because of the complexity of many compensation cases, many workers elect to retain professional assistance in preparing and presenting their claims for benefits.
