It was a fortunate thing that no one at this plant was hurt. Being hurt on the job is something that no one ever expects. Most accidents involving fires or hazardous chemical spills happen within workplace settings. If someone is injured on the job, ideally, workman’s compensation will take care of the medical treatment for any injuries. However, the expense of ongoing medical care or having a reduced wage for a worker who cannot come back to work right away can be detrimental to that worker and his or her family. Sometimes employers will do anything to avoid having to pay worker’s compensation claims or a claim can be denied.
