Bridge project sees its first injuries in North Carolina

If you're injured at work in Maryland, there are some steps you'll take to getting well, from going to the hospital to seeking your rehabilitation. In most cases of work-related injuries, workers' compensation should kick in to help you manage your loss of wages, but if it doesn't, you may be able to seek compensation in other ways.

Nov. 25 news reports have stated that the first recorded injuries have taken place at the Tappan Zee Bridge project in North Carolina. According to the news, there were two people injured in separate incidents, and these are the first to take place in relation to the $3.9 billion bridge replacement. The first took place on Sept. 13 when a worker was struck by a piece of construction equipment on a dredging barge. The 56-year-old employee was taken to a medical center for treatment.

Another accident took place on Sept. 23, according to the reports, when an employee's hand was injured during the unloading of a truck. He was treated and returned to work on the same day, according to the news. Both of the accidents were reported to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, according to the news, and when the site was inspected, no violations were found.

If you travel often, this bridge project is probably going to have an impact on your drives through North Carolina. Fortunately, no one has been seriously injured completing this bridge across the Hudson.

In this instance, the site where workers were injured was in compliance and safety measures were taken to help prevent injuries. If you've been hurt at work, that might not be the same case for you. Seeking legal advice may be one way to determine if you have a right to seek further compensation from your employer.
