Tennessee gas station worker suffers work injury

Most jobs have a relatively low incidence of a worker being injured on the job. However, despite how safe an industry or business may seem or how protected from harm a worker may be, there is always the chance that a work accident can occur. When it does, an inadvertent work injury is often the result. Recently in Tennessee, a gas station worker was hurt in a very unusual accident.

After 5 p.m. on a Saturday, a car came careening toward a gas station in Williamson County. The car crashed through the gas station building, right through the front doors. It then came to a rest partway inside of the building.

A clerk in the gas station was injured at the scene of the crash. While there were no specifics given, the worker was said to suffer injuries that required transport to a nearby medical facility. The driver of the car that rammed into the business also needed medical attention. There is an investigation into the accident.

The worker who was injured may have incurred medical bills and may even suffer from lost wages due to an inability to work while recovering from the accident. In Tennessee and elsewhere, when a work injury means a worker needs to seek medical care, workers' compensation benefits are in place to cover those expenses. Any worker involved in such a scenario may benefit from gaining an understanding of their legal rights concerning this important, state-regulated insurance benefit. Moreover, a separate third party claim for personal injuries may be appropriate against the driver of the vehicle that crashed into the gas station.
