When there are workplace hazards, employees can get seriously hurt or even killed. This was the case when a 19-year-old man died after getting crushed between a tractor trailer and a flatbed trailer in a workplace accident.
Being the victim of a car accident can cause a lot of emotions to flood to the surface. A person may never forget the moment before getting into a crash. These, and injuries, can become permanent reminders of a moment one may try to forget.
Injuries of any type can change the course of a person's life. Physically, the person may have to relearn certain skills or will have to adjust to the lasting effects of an injury. Financially, medical expenses can put a victim in a tight situation especially if he or she cannot work while recovering.
