North Carolina police officer killed in work accident

All occupations hold some degree of risk. However, the type and degree of risk varies according to the job. For example, police officers are often expected to speed toward danger, including criminal suspects, potentially putting their lives at risk. In fact, a North Carolina police officer was recently killed in a work accident.

A variety of injuries fall under workers' compensation benefits

There are a variety of different workplaces in North Carolina. Some people work with heavy machinery, some sit at a computer all day while others rush headlong into dangerous situations as first responders. Regardless of the type of employment, all workers are at risk of suffering a work-related injury. Fortunately, many are covered by workers' compensation insurance benefits to help them cope with the costs associated with an injury suffered during the course of completing their job-related responsibilities.
