Blog post for a workers’ compensation attorney:
“Recently, a Texas man suffered a tragic industrial machinery accident. During his work shift at a manufacturing plant, the man got caught in a conveyer. He was airlifted to a local hospital, but later died from his injuries.
Every year, more than one million U.S. workers suffer an injury that causes them to miss work….”
Uh… yeah, death is generally considered a valid reason for missing work.
