After a police officer was injured while conducting traffic control at a construction site, a workers' compensation claim was filed. The construction accident occurred in spring 2008 in the village of Oakwood, Ohio, which is near Cleveland. A construction company working on a project in Oakwood would normally use state highway patrol officers for traffic control. But according to reports, the Oakwood police department had told the construction company that it had to use officers from the local police force. The injured officer was one of the village's officers.
The sudden death of a spouse is something no one hopes to experience. Sadly, however, tragic accidents occur that leave spouses widowed and children without a parent. Such an incident is a lot for anyone to bear. If a spouse is killed while working, many families are entitled to workers' compensation benefits, which can help them focus on comforting one another instead of worrying about how to afford a funeral or even the next trip to the grocery store.
