Man killed in workplace accident

It is often difficult to predict when an unexpected hazard will arise, especially in a North Carolina workplace. While certain safety precautions can be taken, all hazards in a workplace can not be removed at all times. Unfortunately, a man recently passed away in what appears to be a workplace accident.

Man killed in work accident at industrial plant

Workers in North Carolina and across the country can be injured as they complete their job responsibilities regardless of the type of job they have. Unfortunately, some occupations -- such as those related to construction -- can have additional risks in the workplace as employees work at great heights and with dangerous machinery and heavy materials. Unfortunately, reports from another state indicate that a man recently lost his life in a work accident.

When many people in North Carolina think of dangerous occupations, the first thing that frequently comes to mind may be jobs like firefighters, police officers or military personnel. While those jobs certainly have risks, all jobs -- especially those that require the use of heavy machinery -- could result in a work accident. Unfortunately, a man in another state recently suffered serious injuries in a recent incident.

1 killed, 1 injured in separate workplace accidents at Disney

For many people in North Carolina and across the United States, a trip to Disney is a life-fulfilling event. Many people may not be fully cognizant of the thousands of workers who strive to make visits go smoothly, both in the parks and at their resorts. Unfortunately, two separate workplace accidents recently resulted in one man's death and another's injury.

Employers cannot retaliate against workers who file claims

Retaliation refers to negative consequences or punishments that an employer inflicts on an employee who files a claim or complaint against the employer. For example, an employee might suffer a work-related injury, file a workers' compensation claim, and then get fired as a result. This would be an example of unlawful retaliation and unlawful termination.

Unfortunately, a fall or a dropped item could result in injury. In fact, two men in another state were recently injured after they were involved in a construction accident.
