A very important detail not made available right now is whether or not these individuals worked for the same company. If these were co-workers, it's very likely any resolution would have to go through workers' comp. While it can automatically guarantee benefits to victims and families, it generally strips them of their right to pursue the matter through the courts.

However, if these individuals were working for different companies, there may be a legal path to get the injured victim the help he needs. Workers' comp typically only restricts employees from confronting their own employer, not someone else's. That's why this incident may be a lot more complex than folks realize. Hopefully it's getting attention as such.
