A sudden event could happen on the job at any given moment. Some individuals may be carrying out their work-related duties as usual only to unexpectedly find themselves in a panic due to an accident. Some of those workers may also end up in a great deal of pain if they suffer workplace injuries as a result of the incident.

North Carolina residents may be interested in such an event that recently took place in another state. Reports indicated that the incident occurred at an oil drilling site. It was unclear exactly what happened, but some sort of industrial accident apparently occurred. The event caused an explosion that resulted in the drilling facility catching fire. It took fire crews all night to attend to the flames.

The incident resulted in one worker suffering injuries. It was unclear what exact injuries he may have suffered or what the extent of those injuries may have been. It was noted that he was considered to be in stable condition. Another individual who works in the drilling industry stated that it was surprising that only one person was hurt in the incident.

Suffering workplace injuries in any type of explosion can be a major setback. Burns and other wounds could easily affect North Carolina workers, and such injuries can take a considerable amount of time from which to recover. If individuals have found themselves suffering from these or other work-related injuries, they may wish to find out information on workers’ compensation and how those benefits could potentially help them with resulting financial struggles.
