Being injured at work due to burns may be worry in North Carolina

When a work-related accident occurs, many North Carolina residents may be able to react quickly enough to avoid injury. However, other workers may not be so lucky, especially if they are caught off guard by a sudden incident. Being injured at work can have many negative effects, not just the physical ailments. One man in another state may soon be experiencing some of those effects. 

Workers' comp benefits may prove vital in North Carolina

Needing financial assistance is a struggle that can strike at any moment. For some North Carolina residents, this need may arise due to the outcomes of a serious work-related accident. Workers may suffer injuries that cause loss of income due to time away from work and financial difficulties due to related medical expenses. Luckily, workers' comp benefits may be able to help. 

The most common injuries suffered by truck drivers

Commercial truck drivers have a difficult job. They are responsible for transporting thousands of pounds of goods across hundreds of miles while navigating traffic on highways and surface streets. Their vehicles have massive blind spots, and turning can be difficult. In inclement weather, stopping a commercial truck may prove difficult. Accidents and turnovers happen frequently. Combine that with the real risk of repetitive stress injuries from the manual work of driving and back injuries from loading their cargo, and you have a very risky profession.

Fatal work-related injury may cause hardships in North Carolina

The struggles a family faces after the death of a loved one can severely impact their lives for a considerable amount of time. In some cases, if the deceased loved one provided income for the family, the loss of that income can cause the surviving family to contend with serious financial hardships. A fatal work-related injury typically allows the victim's surviving family to qualify for workers' compensation death benefits.

Surviving family may qualify for workers' comp benefits

In the event that an individual is killed on the job, there may be much information that the surviving family members need to obtain. Details regarding the fatal event, actions taken to attend to the worker and information regarding workers' compensation may all prove useful to the family. Workers' comp benefits may allow them to attend to difficult financial situations presented in the wake of their loss. 

5 things truckers should know about injuries

Repetitive motion, falls and crashes are all possible sources of injuries. You might opt to file for workers' compensation benefits if you suffer an injury while you are working. These are some points to consider if you are facing this situation.
