On-the-job car accidents: Crash claims life of employee

Losing a loved one in a collision can be a traumatic experience, and while the emotional pain may ease with time, the financial challenges this could bring can leave a family in desperate need of relief. Families in Georgia who experience such loss in on-the-job car accidents may be eligible for such relief through the workers' compensation insurance system, but they may need guidance in navigating the process. A family in another state could be in search of advice following a recent crash that claimed the life of a 52-year-old woman.

Are on-the-job car accidents covered by workers' compensation?

When Georgia workers use their personal vehicles for work-related tasks, they might be unsure about their eligibility for workers' compensation benefits. On-the-job car accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, and injuries might have financial consequences such as medical expenses and lost income. A victim of such a car accident might even suffer injuries that cause permanent disabilities.

How temporary disability protects workers hurt on the job

Stress about finances is one of the most common and pressing concerns for individuals dealing with a workplace injury. The more serious the injury that resulted from a workplace accident, the more pressing the financial concerns it creates may become. If you're going to miss more than a day or two of work, you shouldn't have to use your paid time off benefits to cover your missing wages.

Elevator collapses, 3 injured in recent construction accident

When operating at heights, construction workers in Georgia and elsewhere may use various types of equipment to help them reach objectives. When it comes to a construction elevator, if each piece of the apparatus is not properly placed, or if there are any defective parts, the entire structure could be at risk of collapsing. Three workers were injured after an elevator collapsed during a recent construction accident in another state.

Repetitive stress injuries threaten office workers

Although offices are not typically associated with hazardous workplace environments, sitting behind a desk and typing on a keyboard or manipulating a mouse for hours on end could cause significant injuries. Repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome have caused many office workers in Georgia pain and long-term health problems. However, this is not the only risk that office environments pose.
