Construction accident kills 3, injures 1

All jobs carry some degree of risk with them. As a result, most employers are willing to go to extremes to help ensure the safety of their employees. Unfortunately, accidents still occur, prompting states such as Illinois and other states to require employers to provide workers' compensation coverage to financially protect those injured in a workplace accident. These insurance benefits will likely apply after an out-of-state construction accident killed three people and injured a fourth.

Industrial accident results in employee's death

Accidents can happen at any time in Illinois. Often, they occur regardless of the safety measures in place. Unfortunately, one out-of-state worker has been killed in what has been described as an industrial accident. His family is likely slowly coming to terms with the emotional and financial ramifications of his death.

OSHA investigates fatal workplace accident

An accident can happen to anyone at anytime, especially in a workplace. In some cases, what may appear to be a mundane task could result in a serious, potentially fatal workplace accident. While many employees in Illinois may think they are less likely to become involved in such an accident due to their experience, they are not exempt. Unfortunately, one veteran worker at an out-of-state business died in an accident at work.

Workers' compensation claims result from overheated workplace

For the past few months, people in Illinois and across the country have been focused on cold weather and keeping the roadways clear for safe travel. Now that spring is on the horizon, more employers will likely be concerned about keeping their workers cool enough during the summer, especially when working in an area that has poor air circulation. Workers who are injured or become ill as a result of high temperatures might qualify for workers' compensation benefits.

Workplace accident ends in fatality

There are thousands of workers in Illinois who are dedicated to their jobs. They arrive on time every day and fulfill their job responsibilities to the best of their abilities. Despite their dedication, a workplace accident can occur that can cause serious complications for a worker and his or her loved ones. One out-of-state family is likely trying to put their life back together after a fatal accident took the life of their loved one.
