California workers are entitled to carry out their duties in a safe environment. Some jobs, such as construction work or farming, are inherently dangerous. In any job, employers must provide training and equipment to reduce potential injuries as much as possible. A recent incident occurred during an afternoon shift at a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant that caused trauma and injury to three employees.
Several individuals entered the KFC at some point during the workers’ shift. One of them reportedly ordered the cashier to hand over money. The same individual allegedly then jumped up onto the counter and started firing a gun. Chaos erupted in the restaurant.
Several workers suffered injuries
Investigators say that a worker who was standing at the cash register was hit by a gunshot. Two other employees tried to run while shots were being fired. Both suffered injuries. No arrests were made at the time because all the suspects fled the scene.
Thankfully, all the KFC employees involved in the incident survived. In cases like this, it is typically only a matter of time before California police locate and apprehend the suspects involved, especially if the business in question captured their images on surveillance film. Any California worker who suffers injury on the job as a victim of a violent crime may be entitled to file a personal injury claim in civil court to seek financial recovery for his or her losses.
