Work accidents often avoidable with proper safety protocols

Worksites can be dangerous places. However, it is for this very reason that there are safety protocols in place. Procedures should be followed at all times to ensure the safety of Arizona workers and to avoid as many work accidents as possible. In another state, not following these safety procedures seems to have led to a dangerous workplace accident.

Industrial accident results in man's head trapped in excavator

After an employee has been injured on the job in Arizona, the last thing he or she should have to worry about is money. Especially in cases of severe injury where surgery is required, the injured worker should be able to concentrate on recovery, not how he or she is going to afford to pay for any required medical treatments. In another state, an injured worker had just such an experience after an industrial accident led to him needing surgery.

Appeals court finds in favor of woman injured on the job

While many workers in Arizona may know about workers' compensation, most people are trusting enough to believe that, should they ever need it, the system is almost automatic and guaranteed. Unfortunately, this is often far from the case. A woman who was injured on the job in another state had to fight to receive her benefits because her employer had rejected her workers' compensation claim.

Workers' compensation provides benefits for surviving family

When employees suffer an injury on the job and have to miss work, they should not have to worry about whether they will be able to pay their bills. This was the reason that workers' compensation was instituted as an insurance to help cover missed work hours and pay for healthcare for Arizona workers who were either injured while doing their jobs or became ill as a direct result of their work. What happens, though, when the accident goes beyond injury and kills the worker? Thankfully, workers' compensation usually provides survivor benefits for eligible dependents as well.
