Officer files workers' comp claim after traffic control accident

After a police officer was injured while conducting traffic control at a construction site, a workers' compensation claim was filed. The construction accident occurred in spring 2008 in the village of Oakwood, Ohio, which is near Cleveland. A construction company working on a project in Oakwood would normally use state highway patrol officers for traffic control. But according to reports, the Oakwood police department had told the construction company that it had to use officers from the local police force. The injured officer was one of the village's officers.
