Millions of people put themselves in dangerous jobs every day to keep our society functioning. When something goes wrong and someone gets injured, they deserve enough compensation to make up for their injuries. Here’s just one example of a workplace injury that deserve compensation.
A contractor at the Bowen power plant in Euharlee sustained electrical injuries on his arms after electricity flashed over him. A electrical arc jumped between two pieces of equipment while the worker was performing off-line maintenance. He was taken to a local hospital for burns and is expected to recover.
This isn’t the first time an accident has happened at the plant. Two years ago an explosion injured two people and lead to an OSHA investigation against Georgia Power. Over $100,000 in fines were levied after it was completed.
