Car wash worker injured on the job

Because accidents can happen anywhere and at any time, North Carolina workers could easily suffer workplace injuries. No matter a person's profession, the possibility exists of becoming ill or being injured on the job. When this happens, the injured person may feel at a loss, especially financially, but fortunately, workers' compensation can often help.

One woman in another state may soon be exploring her options for obtaining this financial help. According to reports, the woman was seriously injured at the car wash where she works after becoming pinned between two vehicles. The incident occurred when a vehicle leaving the wash bay collided with the rear of a parked vehicle. The worker was between the two cars when this event occurred. It was not mentioned what factors may have contributed to the incident.

The worker suffered serious injuries as a result of the accident. She had to be airlifted from the scene and taken to the hospital for treatment. Her exact condition had not been disclosed at the time of the report. The accident was under investigation by local authorities, and requests had been made for witnesses to come forward.

No one wants to be injured on the job, but typically, accident-causing circumstances are out of most victims' control. Though they may also have a difficult time recovering, they may feel more in control as they look to pursue financial assistance for the hardships resulting from the work-related accidents. Information on workers' compensation may help injured North Carolina workers determine how to apply for benefits.
