2 injured in work accident in another state

Two employees of a manufacturing facility in another state have suffered injuries while on the job. The cause of this work accident and the current conditions of the injured has yet to be reported. These employees, and others in North Carolina and elsewhere who have suffered similar injuries while at work, may have legal recourse.

According to a recent report, two individuals working for Southwest Products suffered burn injuries while at the manufacturing facility. One of the victims -- a 34-year-old male -- is said to have suffered severe burns and was flown to an area hospital for care. The details of his condition have not been released. The other injured employee reportedly suffered minor burns. It is unknown if he was transported for medical treatment.

Southwest Products is a company that manufactures custom service vehicles and a variety of other products. Sadly, work accidents at facilities such as this are fairly common. Authorities have been called to investigate this particular case.

After a work accident, one's losses may be physical, financial and/or psychological -- any of which can take a significant toll on one's personal and professional life. When such accidents result in injuries, those whose employers are required to offer workers' compensation benefits may access those benefits in order to assist with their recoveries. Getting full coverage may prove to be a challenge, however. Whether one resides in North Carolina or elsewhere, it is possible to seek out legal assistance in order to fight for full benefits. Further help in filing any applicable third-party civil claims may also be available.
