Will Your Insurance Cover This?
Everyone knows that there are hazards in most workplaces. It’s part of an employer’s job to make their employees aware of the risks. However, when you own your own business and you’re the one who is injured, it’s the insurance companies that you’ll have to battle.
The family of one young man may have to face such a fight. In Fairburn, there was a man who was working on cutting down some dangerous tree limbs. Unfortunately, as one branch fell away, the tension of another one was released. The limb sprung back and struck him, tangling him up in his safety lines. The combination of blunt-force trauma and the line killed the man. Police are calling it a horrible accident.
It is always a good idea for new business owners to get insurance on their business, especially in a dangerous field like tree-trimming. However, the insurance companies will try to pay as little as they can. If this man had a family, they will now have to figure out where they are going to get income. Catastrophic injury like this can result in a large payout, but not always.
