Workers' compensation can offer valuable benefits to employees who have been hurt while on the job. However, obtaining those benefits may seem difficult for individuals who are uncertain about the process and whose employers may not be entirely forthcoming with assistance. In such cases, individuals who have been injured at work may wish to consult with legal professionals.
North Carolina residents may be interested in an accident in another state that left two workers injured. Reports indicated that the individuals were working construction on a bridge when an accident involving a car occurred. The workers were carrying a wooden beam and the car struck the beam, which caused the workers to fall 15 feet from a higher level of the bridge. They landed on the roof of the lower level and did not hit the roadway below.
