Being injured on the job can pose numerous hardships

Any type of injury can impact a person's life. In some cases, an individual may not have the ability to return to work soon after being hurt, may not be able to return at all or may lose the ability to perform the same job that he or she once could. If any of these scenarios result from being injured on the job, there is a possibility that the injured person could receive workers' compensation.

North Carolina residents may be interested in a recent work-related event that caused injuries in another state. Apparently, a man had been working with a construction crew and was working to dig a trench for a new sewer line when the accident occurred. Reports stated that the man was hit by a piece of equipment.

Emergency crews were called to the scene, and a rescue team had to go into the trench to get the man out. It was unclear whether the man fell into the trench after being struck or if he was already in it when the accident occurred. It was reported that the trench was 27-feet-deep. He was transported to an area hospital to be treated for injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

After being injured on the job, it is not unusual for workers to face many struggles. Though the injuries the man suffered in this situation were not life-threatening, they could still pose a considerable number of challenges, especially financial ones. If North Carolina workers have found themselves in similar situations, they may wish to obtain reliable information on workers' compensation benefits to determine whether they could qualify for help with medical expenses, lost wages and other applicable financial hardships.
