Fatal workplace accidents drop nationwide, but increase in Texas

Fatal workplace accidents are tragic occurrences that happen to thousands of Americans each year. Thankfully, in 2012, the national number of workplace deaths actually dropped to the second lowest level that the country has seen in 20 years. However, this is not the case in Texas. Last year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Texas showed an overall rise in fatal workplace accidents, resulting in a huge 23 percent increase.
