Many individuals experience varying levels of danger while at work on a daily basis. From airline pilots to race car drivers, sometimes a certain level of exposure to risk is to be expected. Due to work conditions and heavy machinery, Tennessee construction workers take their health -- and sometimes, their lives -- in their hands every day. However, when they are hurt at work, they are legally entitled to file a workers' compensation claim.
A construction accident occurred recently in Chattanooga that injured one worker. The accident occurred on a recent Wednesday morning in May. The Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration Department (TOSHA) is currently investigating the accident.
