A workplace accident can happen to anyone in any work environment. A construction worker may suffer repetitive stress injuries from using the same tools and repeating the same tasks 40 hours a week. A factory worker may injure a body part while using a machine. And a grocery store worker may suffer broken bones or a head injury after slipping and falling in a store aisle. Some workplace accidents may even result in fatal injuries.
Last month, a Baltimore County worker who had been plowing snow had died from injuries he may have suffered while he was working. According to reports, police are investigating the worker's death because police have reason to suspect that the worker had been struck by a vehicle.
