Two contract workers for CenterPoint Energy were completing routine electrical work Saturday when an accident occurred injuring one of the workers and killing the other.

Thousands of workers are injured and killed while doing their job each year. In Missouri, employers with more than five employees are required to purchase workers' compensation insurance. The benefits of workers' compensation insurance include covering expenses related to medical treatment and replacing lost wages. Wage replacement is calculated at a rate of 66.6% of the average weekly wage, leaving workers scrambling to make ends meet. Contacting a workers' compensation attorney can help recover compensation for the wages lost and ensure the accident is fully investigated.
