Commentary on Fire Accident on Wilbarger Street in Fort Worth
An accident like this can be a lot more complex than people realize. It may seem like OSHA will do their thing and that's that, but there can be extenuating circumstances to consider.
Was the person injured a worker? Did they work for that company, or were they doing contract work? Were they a customer or visitor? If they were an employee, are they covered by workers' comp, or must they fight for the help they need? Was this the result of negligent supervision or other poor business practices? Was this one person slipping up? Was this totally unforeseeable?
If authorities aren't asking all of these questions, the accident would likely be better off in the hands of professionals who will ask the right questions.
