Work-related injury may lead to workers' comp qualification

Learning that a loved one has been seriously injured or killed in an accident can be a devastating experience for anyone. When the incident is one that took place while the victim was on the job, it may come as even more of a shock. A work-related injury could easily leave individuals suffering considerable setbacks or, in some cases, even lead to a fatality. 

North Carolina residents may be interested in a recent work accident that took place in another area. Reports indicated that two men were working on utility lines and pulling fiber-optic cables for a telecommunications company. While performing their tasks, the bucket on the truck in which they were working came in contact with the power lines. The incident caused one of the workers to be electrocuted. 

One of the men was reported as being 32 years old, and he suffered fatal injuries. He was also reported as being the owner of the telecommunications company. The other man was 23 years old, and he was airlifted from the scene to an area hospital. Reports stated that he was in critical condition. The incident was still under investigation at the time of the report.

When a work-related injury leaves an individual with serious or fatal injuries, the aftermath can be difficult for those affected to handle. North Carolina residents who have face such a predicament may wonder if they could be entitled to compensation. Luckily, many work-related injuries could qualify individuals for workers' compensation benefits. If parties are interested in finding out whether they may qualify, they may wish to considering consulting with experienced attorneys.
