Industrial accident injures woman

For many Kentucky companies, a critical part of operating a smooth business is guaranteeing the proper education of its employees in regards to safety. This is even truer for organizations that rely on the use of heavy equipment, machinery and chemicals among other things, to create a product or provide a service. Unfortunately, even with the most rigorous safety guidelines in place, accidents can sometimes happen and put the lives of workers at risk. 

This was the case in a recent incident in Virginia when a female worker was injured in a workplace accident. The woman was operating a forklift in an industrial area at the Navy Exchange Service Command Distribution Center located near Kenyon Court. Investigators determined that the machine fell off of a loading dock after overturning while the woman was operating it. The length of the fall was approximately five feet. First responders had to rescue her from the forklift because she was restrained by her seatbelt. Additionally, the woman had battery acid on her body from the damaged equipment. An ambulance transported the woman to a local hospital. Investigators noted that her injuries were not considered to be life threatening. 

For people who have been injured in a workplace accident or have a loved one who has been injured in an accident on the job, they may wish to enlist the help of a qualified attorney for assistance during the legal process. Doing so is a valuable way for people to have confident direction during the development of their case and while working with their employer to get workers' compensation.
