Assault leads to workplace injury for police officer

Car accidents can happen at any moment. While some accidents in North Carolina may be the result of a driver's negligence, they are typically unintentional. Unfortunately, a police officer in a different part of the country recently suffered a workplace injury when witnesses claim he was intentionally struck by a car.

Fatal work accident remains under investigation

All occupations in North Carolina and across the country hold some degree of risk of injury. Even jobs that require a worker to spend a great deal of time at a desk could lead to a repetitive motion injury that develops over time. Additionally, those who work with heavy machinery could face serious harm if involved in a work accident. Unfortunately, one out-of-state incident resulted in the loss of a man's life.

Car accident results in on-the-job injury for trooper

Police officers in North Carolina and across the country undoubtedly face several serious occupational hazards. While they must put themselves in between criminals and citizens, many also spend a great deal of time traveling this country's roadways. Unfortunately, a recent car accident involving a state trooper in another state has left the man suffering from an on-the-job injury.

Get hurt at work? Here are the benefits of workers' compensation

It doesn't matter how your injury happened as long as it happened while you were on the job. Maybe you slipped on spilled coffee while you were in the office break room. Maybe you got hit by a piece of falling debris while you were painting a wall. Maybe you violated safety protocol by not wearing your harness and you fell off a scaffolding.

Multiple agencies investigate fatal work accident

Anyone in North Carolina who has ridden in a helicopter likely recognizes the need for pilots to be highly skilled. Unfortunately, even experienced professionals may be unable to overcome hazardous situations that occur while in the air. For example, officials say that a helicopter pilot recently killed in an out-of-state work accident was a knowledgeable, well-trained pilot.
