Worker Experiences Serious Injuries at the Circus

Sometimes your job feels like a circus...sometimes your job is the circus.

(from journal-news.com)

A circus employee was seriously injured when a camel attacked him Friday at fairgrounds in Maryland.

The handler, identified as a 57-year-old man, works for Lewis and Clark Circus, The Washington Post reported.

As the man was unloading the camel from a trailer, the camel attacked the man, biting and trampling him, The Post reported. The man was airlifted to a shock trauma center for treatment of serious head and leg injuries, WUSA reported.

Regardless of where you are employed...workers are workers...employee are employees...and you have rights that protect you in the event you're injured while on the job. 

It's important to look at numerous factors when determining proper and rightful compensation. You should look both at short-term and long-term effects. What wages will you lose? What medical bills/expenses will you incur? Will this be a lingering injury that affects you further down the road and makes you unable to perform in the future?
