Minnesota commemorates road workers killed on the job

The state of Minnesota commemorated the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) workers who have been killed on the job in honor of Workers Memorial Day on April 28.

Workers Memorial Day began in 1970 as a way to recognize the men and women who have died doing their jobs. MnDOT in particular has recorded 34 fatalities among their employees since 1960, as well as 15 deaths of private contractors. Last year, the state authorities recorded 10 road fatalities and more than 1,600 traffic-crashes in Minnesota road work zones. Workers Memorial Day was originally established to remind workers to promote safety within the workplace at all times

Families are often left devastated when their loved ones suffer injuries or serious accidents in the workplace. If you or someone you know has been involved in such an accident, working with an attorney is a good way to help receive the compensation you need for recovery.
