Georgia tree trimmer killed in workplace accident

A recent tree trimming accident has left one family grieving the loss of their loved one. When a person is killed on the job, the surviving family members may be overwhelmed by grief as well as feelings of uncertainty about their financial future. Thankfully, Georgia law requires most companies to provide workers' compensation benefits to victims of a workplace accident. In the case of fatalities, these benefits may also extend to the surviving family members of the employee.

The conditions of the two employees are unknown, though the distribution center said that no deaths were involved in the workplace accident.
