On Saturday April 10 a worker was killed after a fall in Kansas City MO. The worker was employed at Ameristeel Manufacturing where the incident occurred. According to police the victim fell approximately 40 feet through a hole in the roof. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is currently investigating. One of the investigators stated that the victim was not wearing a safety harness but also pointed out that this does not necessarily mean he did something wrong. The victim’s name has not yet been released. The investigation is ongoing.
Being faced with the death of someone you love in a fatal accident can be completely traumatic. An official investigation into this accident may determine that the victim died due to someone elses negligence. In these situations the victims family members may wish to seek justice through a wrongful death lawsuit. Unfortunately this is rarely an easy process. I have worked on these kinds of suits for twenty years and in my experience both people and organizations will often go to great lengths to avoid accepting liability for this kind of accident. But ultimately the law is on your side. With the help of an experienced wrongful death attorney you can be sure that the parties responsible for the death of your family member are brought to justice.
