Overcoming recovery challenges after railroad accidents

Many Connecticut workers suffer catastrophic injuries on the job. Those who work in the railroad industry can experience spinal cord injuries, electrocution, serious burns and other disabling medical conditions as the result of railroad accidents. Such mishaps can occur in an instant, devastating lives when loved ones' on-the-job injuries are fatal or permanently disabling.  

Support available for those seeking railroad disability benefits

When a railroad worker in Connecticut suffers injury or illness on the job, he or she is sometimes able to return to the workplace after recuperating. During the period of recovery, it is often possible to obtain railroad disability benefits. These temporary benefits are meant to help workers make ends meet during time off while they're unable to carry out their duties on the job. 

Fatal railroad worker injuries after switching mishap

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is currently investigating a recent incident that resulted in tragedy on a railroad line in another state. Connecticut has been the scene of fatal railroad worker injuries like this in the past. The OSHA investigation is a common procedure when a workplace fatality has occurred on the railroad.  

Fatal railroad worker injuries especially tragic

No one has to tell Connecticut railroad employees how dangerous train work can be. In fact, railroad work is often ranked high among most dangerous jobs in the nation. Any on-the-job injury is unfortunate; however, railroad worker injuries that prove fatal are always especially devastating.
