Man could face life without arm due to workplace injury

While there is some degree of risk in almost all occupations, some hold more potential dangers than others. For example, those who deal with heavy machinery may have a higher risk of becoming injured than those who work at a computer. Regardless of the type of occupation, states such as Illinois require employers to provide workers' compensation insurance benefits to help in the event an employee suffers a workplace injury. One out-of-state man will likely need such benefits after a serious accident caused the loss of his arm.

Unfortunately, two out-of-state men are facing the realities of these dangers after they suffered a workplace injury in an accident at a construction site.
